Note (49.) to "History of the 'Christian' Trinity - HIST"

49. The Pythagoreans worshiped the "holy tetractys" an equilateral triangle composed of 10 dots - Encyclopedia Britannica, 14th ed., v. 18, p. 803, and An Encyclopedia of Religion, Ferm, 1945, p. 630.

We can see that the whole holy symbol (an equilateral triangle - remember the ancient symbol of pagan trinities which is also the symbol for the trinity in Christendom today) represents the monad or unit (the source) and the three equal sides represent the whole (made up of three equal members: beginning, middle, end) and the ten dots denote "the system of the world." Therefore the Pythagoreans apparently worshiped a symbol representing three equal gods ("god is a number") making up a single "unit" or "source" for the "system of the world."
