### Never gets old

Whatever... just because some folks redefined the old world imperial system doesn't mean there were no basis for them.

Six: 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 = 3 x 2 x 1 (this is called a "perfect number"). In Greek 6 is the number of cosmic order.

(6+6) x (6+6) x 6000 = 864,000 = Diameter of the Sun in miles.
6 x 6 x 60 = 2,160 = Diameter of the Moon in miles.
(6+6) x 660 = 7,920 = Diameter of the Earth in miles.

7,920in = 1 furlong (or 660ft)
7,920ft = 1/2 league or 1.5 nautical miles
1 nautical mile = 1 minute of latitude
60,000mi = Jules Verne's 20,000 leagues (under the sea)

6 x 60 x 660 = 237,600mi = Distance between Earth & Moon.
66,600 mph = Earth's speed around the Sun
66.6 degrees = Earth tilt measured from its ecliptic path _\, or 23.4 degrees measured from orthogonal line drawn to the ecliptic |

60 minutes = 1 hour
60 seconds = 1 minute
864,000 = seconds in a day (see also diameter of the sun in miles).
864,000 years = a Hindu Yuga division
8,640,000,000 years = 1 Day and 1 Night of Brahma
864 = Number of "New Jeruselem" in Christian sacred numerology.

31,680 feet = 6 miles
