# Re: Number Theory Meets The Apocalypse

A reader wants to know if the number of the Beast has any connection with my

recent book about the Riemann Hypothesis. Well…

Zeta(number of the Beast) = 1.00000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000032660504415756509300

3614709845352296923221457321053240190834

4936952910946779749897530894118049300517

4039193902154553795244932984455296252614

8208075387990350642521027259612044434592

084310190771726142….

(This is of course a rational multiple of pi^666, but believe me, you don’t

want to see the rational multiplier.)

The nontrivial zeta zero (counting north from the real axis) with the number

of the Beast: 1020.917475017…

Number of the nontrivial zeta zero (counting the same way) whose imaginary

part is closest to the number of the Beast: 390 (the imaginary part of the

390th nontrivial zero is 666.515147704…)

The (number of the Beast)-th prime: 4,973

The ((number of the Beast)-th prime)-th prime: 48,337

The (((number of the Beast)-th prime)-th prime)-th prime: 589,783

The ((((number of the Beast)-th prime)-th prime)-th prime)-th prime:

8,796,451

The (((((number of the Beast)-th prime)-th prime)-th prime)-th prime)-th

prime: 156,637,829

…and that’s quite enough of that.

Incidentally, did you know — I didn’t until Prof. Lerer clued me in — that

the number of the line in Book 2 of Paradise Lost at which Death appears

is… guess what?

(Adam bites the apple in line 999 of Book 9… but that one I already knew.)
