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.
[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.
