10 things about the 10th®

10th® is to be pronounced as it is written, “tenth”. It is the number we have
chosen to indicate a product which has for us a value of ten. Ten is the highest mark one can obtain at school in Italy. 10th is our visionof an ideal and perfect number because it is the first and insurmountablelimit of numbers. After ten numbers do not continue, they simply start over again and create new series which are repeated infinitively and are thus an imitation of the previous series. Dante too (Convivio 2, XIV, 3) believed that ten was the perfect number: “for since we cannot proceed beyond ten without altering ten itself by means of the other nine or itself and since the most beautiful alteration which it receives as its own alteration by itself... ". Ten, as stated by the Pythagoreans, is responsible for all things. It is the basis and the guide of divine and heavenly life as well as of human life since there are ten commandments, ten is the sum of the first four numbers (1+2+3+4=10=10) which placed on four rows in an ascending manner form the Tetractys, i.e. the equilateral triangle formed by 10 points with a side of four. It is a sacred and esoteric figure on which the Pythagoreans pronounced their most solemn oath. Ten is also the sum of all the dimensions: One point does not have a dimension, a line of two points represents one dimension, three dots create a two-dimensional triangle and four points generate a three-dimensional tetrahedron. The Tantric vision believes that ten cosmic forces occupy the summit in the pyramid structure of the universe. One must not forget that we have ten fingers in our hands and this explains why the number ten constitutes the basis of our numbering system – the decimal system – since the Arabs were the first to use this numbering method and to use their hands for counting. Ten is also considered a symbol of peace and brotherhood. Indeed, when two people shake hands they unite their ten fingers. This is why ten is still considered a “lucky” number today too, a symbol of beauty and perfection, a number to which we attach great importance and the year 2008 is its best witness
since 2+0+0+8=10.
