There are 72 fallen princes set over the earth. Like the verse Deuteronomy 32: 8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

which is incorrct translation...what its saying is God divided man according to the sons of God. At the tower of babel he came down with them and each divided his own and God set each fallen prince over each peoples....that is why God sent out in the new testament 72 disciples as a gesture to saying he is now sending out to the 72 nations his salvation.
IN the book of enoch there is a parable in which God sets 70 fallen angels over mankind but keeps Israel as his inheritance but when israel falls, God removes himself and set a fallen one to rule over israel and when israel divided into 2 God set another fallen one over it making the total 72. But God always promised that he would take all the nations as his inheritance also.
That is why there are 72... more...

by Michael301 - 12/30/14 1:34 PM
I have Recently discovered a '72 HS classmate (we both stayed back to get to) has used the sacred "honeycomb " symbol for his Very Profitable Business (higher profits during wartime).. Our mothers both died from their own hands. We both discovered their bodies. We Both erected stone monuments in their memory for public use (fountain/table ). We have both suffered broken-necks (mine 1st; a hangman's break).. & treated by same Dr. who moved from my area to his area 190mi. away in time to treat my ?Nemesis? .. He now lives in town I spent several yrs as a child living in. Our present towns use same letters: Tulsa/Altus. This is just the Top of List...there's my 1st Sex- he drove me to..He once piloted a piper,he & I only & when flying over "Devils Canyon, OK " lost All Radio contact for rest of trip... there's more... HOPE SOMEONE HERE HAS SOME INSIGHT INTO THIS ( SYNC )

Felt I should have a say considering what it was that got me to find this page.
I watched a video on Youtube last night about Sonic Geometry and the relevance of the number 432.
I spent the night and then today playing with it and maths and found some interesting things.

72 is 1/6 of 432
720 is double 360, 360 being 6x60.
1/3 of 432 is 144.
144 ÷ 432 = 0.333333etc...
72 x 12 = 864
432 x 2 = 864 - 1% of seconds per day (86,400)
72 ÷ 6 = 12
12 x 3 = 36
36 x 2 = 72
72 x 5 = 360
720 x 3 = 2160 (One Great Month "Mayan Calander" also diameter of the moon)
(1/12 of "One Great Year "Mayan Calander" 25920)
2160 ÷ 5 = 432
432 x 60 = 25920
72 x 360 = 25920
25920 ÷ 6 = 4320 ÷ 6 = 720
6 x 6 = 36 x 6 = 216 x 12 = 2592
36 x 24 = 864 x 3 = 2592 ÷ 72 = 36

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this info and I highly recommend watching the sonic geometry movie as it covers a lot about numbers and music.

I was calculating the equinoxes that appear every year, also connected with Jesus/Bible(3 days death, than Resurrection). So here is how I calculated it.
72h(3 days)+72h(3 days) = 144 ( 3 3 ) the age that Jesus never lived, since we know at 32 yrs he died... However, considering the equinoxes I developed this even more and came to the conclusion that GATE 33 is opened at equinox time and it's active for 72h or 3 days.

the number 72 meaning

by Anonymous - 9/06/14 12:01 PM
i had a dream recently, and i was in a bus i knew i was supposed to take which was #72, and i got to a place far away from home and ended up in a hospital, but inside it was like a mall. and after walking around the mall , that i have seen in my dreams few times , i walked out and went to take the same bus home which was 72. i got on the bus as i was minding my own business when i see all the people in the bus pointing a gun at me and i was so scared. i didnt know if i should text my mom and let her know how much i love or her just give my phone and my ring to the girl sitting beside me (which was the only one not pointing a gun at me) and i thought of the ring i always wear, (the ring for me means a lot, since it the engagement ring of my parents, but obvs my mom doesnt wear it anymore cause my parents are divorced now) anyway i think i woke up from the dream and i couldn't continue it, but i was honestly wondering what that all meant.

That was an important dream for you ! When a dream has that 'staged' feel it means that a message is being given. The hospital /mall : healing and also acquisition-meaning that you are to heal but also get something . The return home ... you faced great threat trying to get there- maybe this is speaking to you on a couple levels...the circle of the ring means wholeness maybe for and of yourself, allowing your feminine side to integrate-Jung said we all have and need both masc. and fem. qualities to be a whole person. You expressed such love towards the feminine when faced with death. You're awesome and headed for more awesome ! In the real world the choice to bond with a female-'you and me against the world' might be real life choices you will consider, and maybe this is a moment to get beyond your parents divorce and allow yourself to choose love and take a chance...The 72 ? I live off rt 72 in Jersey/it is haunted as %#!!!!*&! and that's why I'm here-

I can't believe i'm not the only one who sees this number everywhere, i feel like i have a special connection to this number. This must mean something. Everything i do and everywhere i go includes the number 72. What if we have been chosen for something? Or it's a warning? could just be a group of paranoid people though haha

Ever since in year 4 i selected my favourite number completely at random as '72' it is everywhere, everywhere i go its always there, it either jumps out at me or i can look around to find it, but usually i don't look out for it, i read on wikipedia that there are 72 demons and its quite scary. It must be some sort of sign

My Date of birth !

by N'th - 11/28/14 5:21 PM
I arrived here because of my fascination with numerology as a result of my date of birth, which is.....7/2/72
My life has not been easy as I was born with a brain malformation and survived numerous bleeds/haemmorages, radiotherapy and a few other head injuries and treatments/operations.
The word CHAOS would sum it up.
I am sure there is significance in my life as a result of this and to see all this up here is breath-taking !
(To say the least!!!)

As a cashier a few weeks ago I started noticing the number 72 because it came up all day long. A customers total would be 13.72 or 72.64 or their change would be .72. I brushed it off as nothing until it became unnoticeable. Their total would be 72.72 or 94.94 which would also come up all day. I even told another girl to watch this transaction. It would be the same two numbers for the total or the change. Sure enough the change was 72.72. That night my aunt was rushed to the hospital and died the next night. Now I cant stop thinking about these numbers and why they showed up all day long if for any reason at all... And im feeling pretty crazy...

The phi ratio is made with the sides of both Isosles triangles that use 72 degrees. Interestingly both of these triangles feature in the pentogram.
