One half of seven is 3½ and seven is a significant number metaphysically so, from that point of view, it represents the peak of a cycle split into seven.

Also this:

One half of seven, 3½, is also a conspicuous number in Revelation: two witnesses are given power to prophesy 1,260 days, or exactly 3½ years, according to the Hebrew year of 360 days (11:3); the witnesses are then killed, and their dead bodies lie in the streets of Jerusalem for 3½ days (11:9); the "woman clothed with the sun" is protected in the wilderness for 1,260 days, or 3½ years (12:6); Gentiles tread the holy city underfoot for 42 months, or 3½ years (11:2); and the beast is given authority to continue for 42 months, or 3½ years (13:5)

might there be a connection to this allegory of (half way through), somewhat beyond the literalism of the past few centuries with such a fearful intrepretation of'revelations' and then, other readings of the'bible'.

@Fred - I don't really know much about the bible except what was forced upon me at school, and I didn't pay much attention then so I'm not sure I'm qualified to speak much further on biblical interpretations :) Sorry

the yin yang symbol as seven part and can be split in 2 that would also be 3.5! so 3.5 is part of the whole of seven!one part going up and one coming down!one positive and one negative!

white tiger, possibly the lack of being able to let go of the remaining dross of/in my physical life

Hello fred ... for us humans the number 3 1/2 (three and a half) corresponds to a powerful spring-like energy in the form of 3 1/2 coils situated in the sacrum bone ... this energy can be induced to awaken using a resonant frequency ... for example a system of numbers corresponding to the number of coils ... karma 35, 350, 3500, 35000 etc. ... here is more information;


According to the symbolism of numbers in the bible


3 1/2 signifies things still in progress, things imperfect or not completely developed ... this idea corresponds perfectly to a "sleeping coil" that needs to be aroused

From a sacred geometry point of view, 3 is the perfect triangle symbolizing source energy (god if you like) and 4 is a square symbolizing a perfect planet earth ... 3 1/2 is in between suggesting an unfinished, imperfect ever evolving physical world in which we live ... unraveling the coil provides a link between the perfect triangle source energy and the four square perfect planet earth ... have a great day :)

blubird, knowledge does seem to be able to burden one with thought; knowing that i am not completely developed yet within godly potential could provide an overview for a good year
