The Bab wrote that three/triangle = divinity; four/square = servitude; five = mankind/Manifestation; 19 = a Vahid; and 95 = for the Almighty. Baha'u'llah wrote that six = Baha'u'llah's revelation; nine = the beginning of all hidden and manifest knowledge.
If say we came from another star system and only had four digits on each hand, in an 8 decimal system: 7 would be the penultimate number whose multiplication always added to seven, our hand would have 15 not 19 segments, but this 15 would be the same numerically as 19 (17), and "for the Almighty" would be 60, not 95, but the 60 would likewise be the same numerically as 95 (74).
It's interesting that we have the four valleys and the seven valleys which denote four digits and the penultimate number of an 8decimal system, and clocks run on 60 seconds/minutes. And 74 being both the penultimate and digit number like our 95. However, the only significance of 74 that I found was the $74M needed for the Mount Carmel project. 15 being our age of maturity.

Re: Baha'i Number Theory
Might not the significance of the number 9 be in it's penultimate quality? Always being "next to last" just as the Quran and the Bible showed in such significant language in the Judgement Day and the "Return"?

More about a 4 digit ET hand: 72 (lunacies, etc) is 9*8, the 8decimal system times our penultimate 9. 7*9=63 both of our penultimate numbers, which is the year of Baha'u'llah's proclamation. "Their" penultimate times our decimal ten = 70, which had a lot of significance to Shakh Ahmad, equals 106 in 8decimal. 70 also the age of exemption.

Re: Baha'i Number Theory
I love this but understand nothing of this.
I need someone to do this kind of analysis with the Bab's Writings about grammar.
If someone doesn't get to it before me, I want to create like a detective's pinup board that connects all of the associations the Bab makes between various symbols found in His lists of fours, sevens, and so forth.
