Since we skipped 55 (In 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat and Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine went into use),
maybe we can “skip” 58 (‘Ol’ Blue Eyes’ Frank Sinatra released his “Come Fly With Me” album in 1958)
and go to 59 (Charles Darwin published “On the Origin of Species” in 1859 and Fidel Castro took over Cuba in 1959)
so that now the count number and post # can match :slight_smile:

(Josh Cohen) #60

60 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60. Base 60 numbers were used by the ancient Sumerians. Our time measurements are divided into 60s: hours, minutes, seconds. There are 60 * 6 degrees in a circle.

A few Major System images: ashes, cheese, jazz.

Read more about sexagesimal finger-counting:

[Georges Ifrah] argues that the twelve-part numbering system, like the related sixty-part numbering system, goes back to a long-established and widely used finger-counting method. As he puts it, the “duodecimal finger-counting method used in India, Indochina, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Egypt” involves counting to twelve. One does this by using the thumb of the right hand, beginning with the outermost of the three bones at the tip of the little finger.

The sexagesimal finger-counting method, still used in most of the same countries, is complementary to the duodecimal one. It uses the left hand to indicate twelve, twenty-four, thirty-six, forty-eight, and sixty by closing down each of the five fingers, starting with the little finger and finishing with the thumb.

Understandably, Ifrah feels that the duodecimal finger-counting method may have been a factor in leading the ancient Egyptians to divide day and night each into twelve unequal or temporal hours. It may also have “led the Sumerians, and the Assyrians and Babylonians after them, to divide the cycle of day and night into twelve equal parts (called danna, each equivalent to two of our hours), to adopt for the ecliptic and the circle a division into twelve beru (30° each), and to give the number 12, as well as its divisor and multiples, a preponderant place in their various measurements.”
