Meaning of Letters in the Occult Part One: “A”

  • Pythagoras was more than a mathematician; he was also a cult leader. His best-known concept was the Pythagorean theorem: “a” squared plus “b” squared equals “c” squared. How does this relate to the letter “a?” It represents the Pythagorean triangle.
