Ancient Creation Stories told by the Numbers

The hieroglyphic numeral sign sequence

The ancient Egyptian numeral system
That heavenly entity bends down to the up-reaching human, and both come together to form the “ankh”. This fusion with the divine brings breath and life to the human, and it connects the eternal with tangible reality, as in the statues and temples which the Egyptians built for the gods to dwell in on earth, and which their representative the pharaoh upheld with each god’s rituals to receive and maintain that life.
The numerals which connect these two components of "Life" form thus an orderly ladder between earth and heaven, many centuries before the biblical Jacob would dream of this vital link with the divine.
The ancient Egyptian kings monopolized the role of the human in this life- giving and life- maintaining equation, and they used that role to power the pharaonic system for the more than three thousand years of its existence. We can therefore say that this simple equation described and provided the motivation or energy for the cultural achievements of ancient Egypt, and that it functioned back then as an equivalent of the equally simple E = mc2 which now describes and provides our energy and powers our civilization.
Moreover, both the Shen-Ring of "Eternity" and the Ankh sandal strap of "Life" were made from double rope, so the designer of these ingenious metaphors for describing the creation and essence of the world further anticipated the currently fashionable and equally all- encompassing string theory for the creation and underlying nature of that world.
String theory has been called "mathematical theology" because the realms its authors postulate and describe are about sixteen orders of magnitude beyond any currently conceivable experimental verification. Its ancient rope version falls in the same category, but its designer(s) and proponents deserve extra credit because they needed only five orders of magnitude beyond their first observable phenomenon, the emergence of sun and life, to fully account for the beginning of all.
Also, the ancients tied the end of their sequence back to that beginning and so added a purpose to their creation, an achievement which the modern theorists have yet to match.
