.9 repeating equals 1

Well, my 12-year old daughter just taught me something wonderful tonight! She mentioned to me that .9 repeating is actually equal to 1.

I was awe-struck: what a brilliant mathematical way to explain the paradoxes of the Universe!
  • Even if you don't look or feel whole, you are whole!
  • Even if you aren't perfect or don't think you're perfect, you are perfect!
  • Even in variety, there is harmony
  • Even in chaos, there is balance and order
I simply love how mathematics explains the divine principles of perfection and wholeness!

For those of you who are mathematically inclined, here's a link to a thorough explanation of this mathematical phenomena: http://polymathematics.typepad.com/polymath/2006/06/no_im_sorry_it_.html.

What a brilliant Universe we live in!
