There should always be balance and harmony and in the interest of that philosophy the number today is nine- 9
Here are my reasons:
The thing is that for all quotients which are a finite fraction (for example, 360 divided by 16, 25, or 32), the fraction reduces to 9! I.e. 360/32 = 11.25; where 1+1+2+5=9.
9 seems to be particularly associated with the process of human birth. In addition to the 9 months of gestation, and 9 openings of the body (all of which operate in some fashion in connection with conception and gestation), there is also the fact that the tail of the sperm is made of 9 twisted threads, which after uniting with the egg, forms a centriole, which is a circle of 9 parallel tubes.
There is also a strong geometrical connection, in that, if one takes the unique 3-4-5 right triangle (with sides of 3, 4, and 5 equal units -- the only triangular shape utilizing a combination of single digit whole numbers which result in one angle of the triangle equaling 90 degrees -- however, larger numbers such as 5, 12, and 13 also work),
It is then possible to tune one of the sides to a particular note, and have the other two sides be in a tuned harmony. The three sides of the triangle form a series of tones that are equivalent to the first three strings of a tuned guitar. (One might also note that geometrically, one only has to tune one side of the triangle, while the guitar requires all three strings to be individually tuned!)
Anyway 9 has value so pay attention when you are directed toward nine feel a sense of completion.
