And sure enough, something came up! I found, that following the form of the SevenSphere, I could place a word in the center sphere, and then explain, dissect or sum up that concept by placing six others around it. It wasn't an 'always right' situation, because often, the number of explaining words isn't six but seven, and the seventh one is somehow special, like for instance the days of the week: Monday till Saturday, and Sunday being the odd one out, being the one day of rest. But like the wordplay taught me about language, it also taught me about the SevenSphere: believe it or not, there were actually different variations of it, when it came to the explanatory words.

But since scientists hate infinities, the original representation conveniently omitted that, at least for the values where it was doable. Numbers like Pi bug us still, because their endless non-repeating decimals make sure we can't avoid Infinity! These zero-values are marked in Navy blue in the spreadsheet. • Next we probably notice the singular repetitions of other non-zero digits, which do have an effect on the value of the number, unlike the zeroes. You may have no idea where I'm going with this thing, but stick with me.

That very moment, the DJ tossed out the song I'd been listening to, and announced the very hit from a distant past I was pondering! Odds? About one in how many hits could he have chosen? Considering the realm of possible choices, I figured it could not have been coincidence: there was a force at work here, and I was hooked! By now, I'm many years older, and have seen syncs that would blow anyone's mind. A fair bit of them led me to believe that the only way I could explain it all to myself was to write a novel about it in order to ease my mind.
