Perfect numbers are rare. The Ancient Greeks recognized four perfect numbers: 6 – 28 – 496 – 8,128. Throughout history perfect numbers have fascinated mathematicians and more perfect numbers have been discovered.

The Six Items of Gleipnir – Norse Mythology

Gleipnir was the name of the super strong leash used to hold the dreadful Fenrir Wolf. The Fenrir Wolf was one the monstrous children of the trickster god Loki. The dwarfs had made this extraordinary leash.

The Fenrir Wolf only agreed to try the leash if Tyr put his hand in his mouth. The wolf bit off the right hand of the god Tyr. Tyr gave his name to Tuesday. Gleipnir consisted of six items:

1. The sound of a cat walkingTyr and Fenrir - John Bauer

2. The beard of a woman

3. The roots of a mountain

4. The sinews of a bear

5. The breath of a fish

6. The spit of a bird

The Vikings explained that the Gleipnir was the reason these six items no longer existed. The Fenrir Wolf will not break loose from Gleipnir before Ragnarok (the end of the world).

At Ragnarok the Fenrir Wolf will kill the chief god Odin.

    I was born on the 6th of June 1967 (6/6/67) 666

    I have 6 siblings.

  3. I was born on the 21-04-1997,i want to know what my number is?

  4. unnamed player

    I think all numbers after 5 like mirror, for instance 6, it is 3×2. Carbon have six atoms. he burned on “fire”, but he were three(something what relate to metals, or life at all, like trees), so it is same 3, but burned. Look at davide star, two triangle, this is mean that mirror of one triangle to second, from the hot treating (sun), awry mirror, all living organism structures is stay on that carbon ties, all our lifes is LIE, mirror. Even pronounce of word can tell us what is that, SIX – when “s” it is metals, begining, and their is burned on “x”….

  5. keep seeing 123 everyday sometimes numerous times per day in total that is six. I know it is a divine gift but struggling to understand its true meaning

  6. I don’t know but the no.6 seem to be with since the day i was born. I am born on the 6th of the 6. My rugby jersey no.6. My 2lst capping no. 866. I am from the 6 unit. I have 6 simblings. Is 6 my perfect number?

  7. Some guy from somewhere

    Even though I’m a Libra and number 6 is supposedly my “lucky” number, I hate it, it has only negative meaning for me. Mostly because of stupid superstition. I know it’s silly to hate or be scared of any number, but I just can’t help but view number 6 as a negative and bad number. I love number 5 and 7.

    • My friend, believe you me – People will see meanings and wonders in everything they want to. “what you see in life, depends on what you’re looking for” If you drive a Mercedes, then you see lots of Mercedes cars, If you drive a ford, then you see lots of them.
      It all is coincidence. EVERYTHING in life means something and have it’s purpose. If 6 has a negative connotation for you, then that is what it is – for you. Until YOU decide to be in control and not the superstitions and self inflicted connotations.

      Enjoy life on YOUR terms. Not on the tune of someone else’s prediction. we all make create our own heaven – or hell.

  8. 6 is my favorite number and 666 is also in my social…i see it alot.

  9. I keep seeing the number 66 in my daily life? what does this mean? any help out there?


  10. I love the number six, I liked it before i found out it was evil. But now i still love 6 its a wonderful number and shouldn’t be looked at as the devils number.

  11. Qeni Bekhugedol T'alnekuyaq Arbarhzerohrhoht be Verhershevah

    So tell us, why does the Bible insist that six, a mathematically perfect number, is IM-perfect? And why is seven “perfect” when it’s mathematically deficit? The same goes for one, the number of rest days (or Shabat) in the Abrahamic week.
    And weirdest of all, some sources say…that ZERO is a perfect number also.

    • Maybe because GOD thinks on a higher level than us and understand the universe and all the complexities far better than us. Look at history. Sometimes we believe an invention is the bees knees just to find out later it is bad. e.g. Thalidomide. It was supposed to be the wonder drug for pregnant women until the babies were born………

  12. I am floored by the amazing qualities of the number 6! For years I thought it was a dark number. Now I see by more facts and research that it is in fact a great and powerful number. I am still very partial to the numbers 7, 11, and 19 however as they all have deep meaning in my life.

  13. After reading this article, I might change my favorite number and might move to number 6! The only number with minimum negative connotations and maximum positive ones. Completeness, balance, perfectness, luck, all is attached to it. Anybody will just love this number! This number is just so awesome.
