1509, Are the numbers divine entities ?



Some numbers, like 118, are often meet
                                                      [by history researchers,
and often work as assistants, deputies,
                                                 [right-hand men, nurtures.

For example, on the territory of 118 islands
                          [they built the Republic of San Marco, Venice,
the city of Bridges of merchants and conquerors,
                                              [of pious people and of imperious.

In one of my own wanderings in history
                                                      [I met again the number 118,
because studying the events of the year 1509
                                  [I read that the Portuguese opened a gate
to enter in India which consisted of 118 kingdoms,
                        [where they defeated a coalition of nearly a global fleet.

A legendary naval battle where the Portuguese Empire defeated
    [the Ottomans and the Republic of Venice, for them a victory sweet.

Indeed, a coincidence of numbers, the inhabitants of the 118 islands
                        [fought against those claiming the 118 kingdoms….unbelievable !

Greek philosopher Pythagoras believed that the numbers were divine entities
             [and equated them with the gods.... achievable? believable? conceivable?

The principle of the GPS system is based mainly on trigonometry and is simply the evolution of the original idea and knowledge that Pythagoras gave us, who has been intensely involved in the science of mathematics and astronomy.

1508, Queen of the Adriatic




While Ponce de Leon explores and conquers Puerto Rico,
                          [same time, in the year one thousand five hundred and eight
in Europe begins a war sometimes known as the War of the Holy League
                                            [and it's end will take place in a very distant date.

Pope Julius II, intending to curb Venetian influence in northern Italy,
                                                                          [had created the League of Cambrai, 
an alliance consisting of himself, Louis of France, Ferdinand of Aragon
        [and Maximilian of Holly Empire, an anti-Venetian alliance, I would say.


The above allies were joined, at various times by more powers of Europe,
                                                                           [including Spain and England,
 the Duchy of Milan, Florence, the Duchy of Ferrara,
                                                                      [Swiss mercenaries and Scotland.

Clearly it was all against one and worth it to see who was this great one.

Once upon a time one group of hunted people
          [moored on 118 small islands and finally found a place in the sun.

Was Venice, been known as the La Dominante, City of Masks
                      [Queen of the Adriatic, City of Bridges and maybe some more.

Over the centuries, City of Canals has becοme
          [international financial center and powerful state at sea and ashore.
