OU In this opening programme Marcus du Sautoy looks at how fundamental mathematics is to our lives before exploring the mathematics of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Greece. He discovers that the way we tell the time today is based on the Babylonian Base 60 number system - so it is thanks to the Babylonians that we have 60 seconds in a minute, and 60 minutes in an hour - and shows how the Babylonians used quadratic equations to measure their land. In Greece, he looks at the contributions of some of the giants of mathematics including Plato, Euclid, Archimedes, and Pythagoras, who is credited with beginning the transformation of mathematics from a tool for counting into the analytical subject we know today.
Would you like to know more about astrology? Justice must be served but this is going to be one hell of a shoot-out. Sagittarius is Latin for archer, and the Sagittarii is what the Roman legions termed their horseback bowmen.
While the modernist perceives Sagittarius as a futuristic, adventurous sign: Jupiter, also known as Jove, the Roman god of justice rules Sagittarius. When Jupiter Babylonian and egyptian maths with Sagittarius, their thunderbolts come to earth, justice becomes front-page news, and exaggerated ideologies can elevate commoners to kings.
In a month where the Mueller investigation is expected to go reach a climax, where Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein could be walking on thin ice, where Trump may face the music and polarised mid-terms divide the US, and where the Khashoggi murder still looms large internationally, it's auspicious that Jupiter returns to Sagittarius.
Both born with Jupiter in Sag. Yeats This next section examines the more recent last century occurrences of Jupiter in Sagittarius, coupled with notable events and trends.
And in the USA J. Edgar Hoover was appointed head of the FBI. The political polarity of Europe played out in the Spanish Civil War with the Communists and Fascists supplying assistance to the warring parties. In the Middle East the battle between Jewish settlers and nationalists began in earnest with the Arab Revolt.
And in the midst of these extremities US activist Abbie Hoffman was born. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars. The divisions were now mirrored in Berlin itself. A Russian blockade of surface transport led to Allied food drops, and the dissection of the German capital.
The State of Israel was born with powerful allied support against fierce Arab resistance, and the Palestinian exodus began. All of these countries predominate world news today, and possibly moreso over the year ahead.
A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. But a planned Paris summit between President Eisenhower and Khrushchev was literally shot out of the skies along with a US U2 spy plane over Russian airspace. Keeps his humour but has seen his share of courtrooms too.
Wisdom is oft times nearer when we stoop than when we soar. William Wordsworth Nothing exceeds like excess. Big budgetary blowouts caused by wasteful defence spending, encouraged a temporary meltdown of the Cold War.
The superpowers were back to the negotiating tables. The division between Israel and Palestine dramatically deteriorated with terrorists executing 25 people at Tel Aviv airport and following up with the Munich Olympic massacre where 9 Israeli hostages were killed.
Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage which we did not take, towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden. Polarity was back on the table.
Often we have no time for our friends but all the time in the world for our enemies. This entire period coincided with ferocious with separatist state. Chechen gunmen took 1, people hostage in a hospital. Terrorism was back with a bang.
The US experienced its worst homeland terrorist attack to date, with the Oklahoma City bombing. Thousands of commuters on five Tokyo subway trains were simultaneously gassed by the crazed Japanese religious cult, called Aum Supreme Truth, Jupiter in Sagittarius zeal.
The last time Jupiter crossed this way was twelve years ago. Iraq was the country experiencing the greatest division, with a marked increase in insurgency, leading to a US troop surge. Neighbouring Iran held Royal Navy personnel prisoner for sailing in disputed waters.
Does that last one give a clue to the upcoming US mid-term elections. Looking at the President's chart for that event shows Mars exactly squaring his birth Midheaven, whilst the SP Mars also hard angles to the same Midheaven.Prehistoric Era.

Overview and Timeline. The civilization of Ancient Egypt is known for its stupendous achievements in a whole range of fields, including art and architecture, engineering, medicine and statecraft.
Exploring mathematics: maths in nature and art. What does mathematics have to do with nature or art? The video tracks in this album trace the origin of the mathematics of chaos and describe how the chance discovery of fractals became the basis for some real - and revolutionary - commercial applications such as the fax and the modem.
