Number 137

By Alessandro Carosi

I’m walking toward Stretham with my brother when checking my phone I find in my emails a question that someone asked on Quora, it is in Italian but I translated in English for this post, it is about why the number 137 is the biggest mystery in physics, I lift up my head to across the road and here we are a beautiful synchronicity, a bus running from Streatham to Clapham was the 137.

“Perché il numero 137 è il più grande mistero in fisica?

È una domanda abbastanza complicata. Provo a spiegarti quanto ho capito io (chiedo venia per il linguaggio brutale):

Per modellizzare l’interazione tra particelle, prima vengono considerate le particelle libere (ad es. considero un elettrone e un positrone) e viene descritta l’energia del sistema con una funzione che mi dice come evolve nel tempo un elettrone o un positrone, e al prim’ordine appunto li considero liberi (indipendenti l’un l’altro). Poi aggiungo una piccola perturbazione, cioè l’interazione. Viene fuori che tutte le interazioni hanno una costante d’accoppiamento che è un modo per sviluppare in serie quell’interazione (ed è uno sviluppo di Taylor in potenze della costante d’accoppiamento) . La costante d’accoppiamento dell’interazione elettromagnetica è ‘α’ ≃1/137. alfa è adimensionale, cioè è un numero, perciò non dipende da unità di misura o altro (come le altre costanti fisiche invece). Quando appaiono costanti adimensionali è un bell’interrogativo. tipo pigreco. Perchè viene fuori pigreco? Lo sappiamo, è perchè ho un cerchio. e 1/137? perchè?

Ogni interazione ha una sua costante di accoppiamento. Il nostro universo è formato da parametri con un certo valore.. C ha un certo valore, l’energia di un elettrone ha un certo valore, ecc ecc Poichè noi, il mondo,il nostro universo, siamo composti da atomi e questi atomi interagiscono solo elettromagneticamente, se cambia la costante di interazione elttromagnetica cambia la chimica, la fisica, tutto quanto: non funzionerebbe più nulla. E quando studi un interazione elettromagnetica a livello quantistico e relativistico esce fuori questa costante, perchè le interazioni devono essere per forza sviluppalte in potenze di alfa. perchè viene fuori alfa però nessuno lo sa..”

“Why is the number 137 the biggest mystery in physics? That’s a pretty complicated question. I will try to explain what I understood (I apologize for the brutal language): To model the interaction between particles, first free particles are considered (e.g. I consider an electron and a positron) and the energy of the system is described with a function that tells me how an electron or a positron evolves in time, and at first order precisely I consider them free (independent of each other). Then I add a small perturbation, that is interaction. It turns out that all interactions have a coupling constant which is a way to develop in series that interaction (and it is a Taylor development in powers of coupling constant). The coupling constant of electromagnetic interaction is ‘α’ ≃1/137. alpha is dimensionless, i.e. it is a number, so it does not depend on units or anything else (like other physical constants do). When dimensionless constants appear, it’s a good question. like pigreco. Why does pigreco come up? We know, it’s because I have a circle. and 1/137? why?

Every interaction has its own coupling constant. Our universe is made up of parameters with a certain value. C has a certain value, the energy of an electron has a certain value, etc. etc. Since we, the world, our universe, are composed of atoms and these atoms interact only electromagnetically, if the electromagnetic interaction constant changes, chemistry, physics, everything changes: nothing would work anymore. And when you study an electromagnetic interaction at a quantum and relativistic level, this constant comes out, because the interactions have to be developed in alpha powers.

why it comes out alpha but nobody knows”

Angel numbers 137 explained by


Number 137 is a combination of the attributes and energies of number 1, the vibrations of number 3 and the influences of number 7. Number 1 brings with it the vibrations of self-leadership and assertiveness, initiative, instinct and intuition, new beginnings and a fresh approach, motivation, striving forward and progress. Number 1 reminds us that we create our own realities by our thoughts, beliefs and actions. Number 3resonates with optimism and inspiration, ‘faith, hope and charity’, encouragement and assistance, talent and skills, enthusiasm and manifesting. Number 3 resonates with the energies of the Ascended Masters, and indicates that the Ascended Masters are around you, assisting when asked. The Ascended Masters help you to focus on the Divine spark within yourself and others, and assist with manifesting your desiresNumber 7vibrates with the mystical influences of spiritual awakeningdevelopment and enlightenment, inner-knowing and understanding others, peace, dignity and refinement, persistence of purpose and good fortune, and your Divine life purpose and soul mission.

Angel Number 137 is a message of ‘congratulations’ from your angels and the Ascended Masters, as you have chosen the right course of action and are travelling well along your life path. Your clear connection with the angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters is ensuring a strong channel of communication and you are receiving Divine guidance every step of the way. Call upon the angels whenever you feel the need for help and support. You are encouraged to continue on your current path as the angels and Ascended Masters support you in your quest.

Angel Number 137 brings a message that your positive expectations, prayers and visualizations have set you on your course and ‘right’ life path. Your angels ask that you keep up the great work and keep affirming positive outcomes.

Number 137 relates to the karmic number 11 (1+3+7=11) and Angel Number 11.
