As **496** = 1 + 5×99 and 99 = 2^{3} + 3^{3} +
4^{3}, the number **496** can be expressed as the sum of (4^{2}=16) cubes of the
integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 located at the vertices of three pentagrams sharing the same centre. This is one way in
which the integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 symbolized by the four rows of dots in the Pythagorean tetractys express the
number **496** characterizing superstring forces.

It is well-known that the pentagram and its circumscribing pentagon display the Golden Ratio Φ = 1.618.... as the ratio of the lengths of their various parts, coloured red and blue below:

Here, therefore, is a mathematical connection between the Golden Ratio, the pentagram and the
number **496** at the heart of superstring theory:

496 =

The number value **15** of YAH, the Godname of Chokmah, determines this number
because it is the sum of 1^{2} and the first five squares that start with 3^{2}, with three
units separating each integer, and which end with **15**^{2}:

The pentagon also embodies the number **496** because, constructed from
tetractyses, it contains **31** yods and **496** is the **31**st
triangular number, so that it is the sum of the first **31** integers that can be assigned to the
**31** yods in a pentagon:

It is how the Godname EL of Chesed with number value **31** determines this
number. The 5-pointed star embodies it, too, because 30 yods line its sides, so that assigning the integer 1 to its
centre and the 30 integers 2-**31** to its sides generates **496** as their
sum.
