**INTRODUCTION**:

Jain’s main mathematical enquiry or research is to prove that the Golden mean (Phi 1:1.618…) connects all systems, whether it be biological, mineral, crystal, space, atom. eg: Phi is in the 3-4-5 Pythagorean Triangle. Phi is in the Equilateral, Phi is in 3 tangential circles etc. Jain can demonstrate that Phi is in Binary Numbers (1-2-4-8-16-32), Phi is in Prime Numbers, etc. In fact, the True value of Pi is based on Phi, based specifically on the square root of Phi which is 1.272, that which Squares The Circle. Jain’s life’s work is to show that the Golden Mean underpins all creation and is part of all mathematical and biological systems.

### HOW I GOT MY NAME “JAIN 1O8”

### the J O U R N E Y from COLLIN to JAIN 108

How did I get my name Jain 108? A lot of people ask me why my surname is 108. It was not a name I took on for egotistical reasons, rather it is a name that I earned from the respect of India’s Mathematical elite after I gave a lecture to 200 of India’s top Mathematicians in 2005 on the subject of how the Number 108 is mathematically derived from the Fibonacci Sequence and the Harmonics of the Pentacle. I did this pre-internet days and wrote a book called The Book Of Phi, Volume 4 in 2010 and prior to this there was absolutely no mathematical references to its origin, only some information about 108 beads on their chanting mala necklaces and 108 recitations to their god or goddesses etc .. So this is my Story, my Journey, how I earned the title of Jain 108. 0 – 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 4 – 3 – 7 – 1 – 8 – 9 – 8 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 4 – 1 – 5 – 6 – 2 – 8 – 1 Jain 108 (the following are the tags used in Instagram:) #108 #jain108 #108academy #fibonaccisequence #sacredgeometry #numbertheory #fibonacci #goldenratio #phi #geometry #mathteacher #symbol #mentalpower #matemáticas #matematicas #formulas #equation #mathteacher #math #divineproportion #math #maths #india #mathematics #calculus #mathart #vortexmath #mathematical When people ask me why my name has the suffix of 108 I often reply: 108 is the Living Mathematics Of Nature, having a unique connection to the Pine Cone, having 8:13 Counter Rotating Spirals and the Sunflower having 21:34 spirals obeying that which is called the Fibonacci Sequence: 0-1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-, the Key to all Living Systems based on the trinity of 3+5=8 or 13+21=34 or the Past + the Present = the Future. The shape of every Protein in our body is the same angle as that of the Pentagon which has its internal angles of 108 degrees. Thus 108 is part of our cellular memory and ascension process, to be attuned to Nature. This critical angle of 108 degrees allows systems to embed into one another, like the Russian Nesting Dolls, permitting non-destructive access to the Macro and Micro worlds. This is because the pentacle is a Fractal meaning the Inside is the same as the Outside. The Vedic Culture reveres a sonic mantra called the Gayatri Mantra or Savitri Mantra from the Rg Veda that honours the 5 Elements of Creation and the Multi-Dimensional Inner and External Worlds. It was also praised by Buddha in the Pali Canon and recited 108 times. It is composed of 24 syllables and the sum of its letters, known as Gematria, where A=1, B=2, C=3 etc but in the Sanskrit language, adds up 108. This is a direct correlation to the Fibonacci Sequence, that when it is reduced to single digits, by a process called Digital Compression or Continued Subtraction of 9, reveals Recursion or Repeatability at every 24th digit. Thus Sri 108 is an Infinitely Repeating 24 Code that sums to 108 and is the core of Nature and the Stars. It is called Sri 108 which means in a sense that it is holy, not religiously holy, because sacred is that which is Timeless and Permanent. 108 in the modern world connects the contemporary Now with the lineage of Ancient Wisdom. This is achieved by regarding Numbers as Living Souls, like humans, that form communities and networks. Sometimes 108 is tagged at the end of someone’s name to highlight some distinguishing quality or spirituality, like calling someone “Sir” or “Master”. So this is my Story, my Journey, how I earned the title of Jain 108.#### 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 4 – 3 – 7 – 1 – 8 – 9 – 8 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 4 – 1 – 5 – 6 – 2 – 8 – 1 – 9

I started off as a Bricklayer, working every weekend of my life with my Dad and brother, since the age of 7 on building sites. This is where I learnt to Calculate! I learnt the Art of Mental Mathematics on the scaffolding: How many bricks do I need to build this house? How many tiles do I need to tile this floor? How many cubic feet of concrete do I need to pour this slab? How do I use a water level made from clear plastic tubing like a hose to get my levels spot on? How precise must I be, to 1/16th of an inch, to mark my vertical pole called the Gauge Rod, that determines the accuracy of the building’s height? Jain the Bricklayer, building a cathedral-like house in Possum Creek, near Byron bay, far north NSW, age 32. The money made from this creative construction earnt me airfares for my partner Reenah Sun and our 1.5 year old daughter Mingkah Sun to make our first trip to India in 1989, Jaipur then to Kashmir in the north, then Leh City in Ladakh which is geographically Tibet. This 8 month journey planted a seed to return to India a second time. An extract from Jain’s Resume in 2005, documenting an important meeting with India’s top mathematicians from Info-Sys, like USA’s Silicon Valley. Kranti Kiran of India, took me on tour in India over a month’s period in 2005, introducing me to many schools where I taught thousands of children, and highlighted by a visit to Hyderabad, Silicon Valley-like city to the headquarters of Info-Sys, (like Google) where I went through high-security clearance, just to get in to lecture on Sri 108 and how it is connected to the Mathematics of the Pentacle, Phi and Digital Roots. The Mathematicians were astounded that a young man of full-blood Lebanese Roots, was an Ozzie bricklayer by trade yet his Soul resided with them here in India! Jain’s visit to Hyderabad in 2005, Silicon Valley-like city headquarters of Info-Sys where I got my first standing ovation from over 200 of India’s top mathematicians, some who later wrote to me letters with the title of Mr Jain 108… The guy sitting at the front with the blue shirt was the head mathematician who permitted this powerpoint conference. This meeting could only happen by word of mouth, via Kranti’s network and connections of the highest order. nb: I would like to thank, indirectly, Mr Kenneth Williams of the UK, who created the first Vedic Mathematics Newsletters that I read and learnt from and allowed me to create the first dvd in the world on Vedic Maths in 2001, Through this forum I was introduced by email to Kranti Kiran who became my email buddy, he was India’s top Human-Calculator-Computer, which subsequently led to my visit to India to meet up with him.**LETTERS THAT I RECEIVED FROM INDIA:**It was months after this Lecture in Hyderabad that I started receiving snail mail (envelops) from India from some of these enthusiastic mathematicians. My name on these envelops was MR JAIN 108 Even though they normally would have addressed me as Mr Jain of Australia, as a sign of respect, in their culture, they suffixed my name with “108” and thus the name Jain 108 stuck, I liked it, not for egotistical purposes, but because I had genuinely discovered the true mathematical derivation of Shri 108 hidden within the Fibonacci Sequence. I kept the envelops, as I thought it was a genuine honour and cute. Letters that were addressed to me from India came in the humbling form of: Jain 108, Professor Jain, Dr Jain, Sri Jain and Jain Ji Questions I often get asked from readers on Facebook and Instagram and general emails:

**1-**Were there any books or information on 108 before you wrote your encyclopedia (The Book Of Phi, volume 4) before it got self-published in 2010 ? and

**2-**were your discoveries on 108 pre-Internet days? Can we say that you are the first person to introduce the Mathematical explanation of 108 to the Indians ? The Fibonacci Sequence is the Key to All Living Systems. Showing the Female (curved) and Male (straight lines) of the Phi Phenomenon The Golden Ratio or Divine Proportion (1:1.618…) is symbolised by the Female aspect (curved lines) which is the Phi Spiral as seen in the Sunflower having a Counter-Rotating Field Coding of 34:21. The Male aspect (straight lines) is symbolised by the Pentacle, especially when it is drawn within itself, reducing at the rate of .618, called Fractal Pentacle, when the inside is the same as the outside. By “Continued Subtraction of 9” aka Digital Roots or Compression, the infinite additive sequence of the Fibonacci Numbers reduces to a necklace of digits called the 24 Infinitely Repeating Code that sums to 108 PHI CODE 1: linear sequence 24 REPEATING PATTERN based on the Digital Compression of the FIBONACCI SEQUENCE

**0 1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7 1 8**

**9 8 8 7 6 4 1 5 6 2 8 1**The same 24 Pattern can be circularised. Look at the relationship of 108 : 360 both numbers are divisible by 36 reducing to

**1:3**. This means, that in our Decimal Base 10 system, when we divide the circle into 10 points, which is really the creation of the Double Pentacle, there is a sacred connection between 3 and 10. Thus upon the 10 Point Circle, touching every 3rd Point achieves the Angle of 108 Degrees. This hints at a sacred connection between the Number 108 and the concept of the Trinity eg: In there Hindu Culture of Deities there is the Trinity of: Brahma (the Creator, Vishnu (the Preserver) and Shiva (the Destroyer) This ratio of 1:3 is also evident in: the PHI VESICA where the intersection of the 2 Circles happens at one-third of the Diameter, generating an internal Golden Ratio where AB / BC = 1.618… In Photoshop, artists use this function of The RULE OF THIRDS to create aesthetically pleasing proportions in their compositions THE BOOK OF PHI, volume 4 The first comprehensive compilation on Sri 108, a rare and highly visual Encylopedia of 108 references from many cultures.

**AMN in the Scriptorium, the Ancient Library boy**” has a lot of significance to me, as it appears, on hindsight, as a prediction of my future, that I was the one chosen to access the knowledge of Sri 108, how it is based on Phi and Nature. I subsequently put out the first comprehensive Encyclopedia on important references on 108, pre-internet days. When I wrote this book The Book Of Phi, volume 4, there was hardly a mention of sri 108. This drawing also indicated my direct access to Ancient Knowledge, that is why I am standing on the clouds… if for example I wanted to solve a deep geometrical or mathematical problem, I would take the enquiry into my dream state and wake up in the morning and crack that code and re-discovering that the Fibonacci Sequence contains a hidden Infinitely Repeating 24 Pattern whose sum of single digits is 108, 108, 108 forever, the hidden pulse of Creation. This drawing was also a depiction of the Near Death Experience I had had 9 months prior to drawing this, giving me a glimpse into the Akashic Records where all Knowledge is stored and thus is accessible. This drawing: “

**The 5 Fishes**” was one of a 1,000 artworks that I created in the Torres Straits above the tip of Australia. It was a form of self-education, accessing within my Soul Memory, the geometries of Nature that were of importance, derived by watch how water in the creeks flowed, how a leaf fell, how patterns on seeds revealed themselves to me. Without any planning, the Deity or Being that kept appearing in many of these drawings was a Being that emerged out of an elongated isosceles triangle, which happens to be what is called a Golden Phi Triangle (a segment of the Pentagram). It kept appearing, and adopted the name of Haha-Aha, as if it was an aspect of my Higher Self. During my 4 year hermitage 1984-87, I wrote about 1,000 pages of elongated pages in Tibetan style (it just happened that the perimeter of each hand-cut cardboard page, without planning was 1.618 metres! It was a process of putting together all the drawings that I had in Torres Straits in 1981-82. Art Of Jain 1982: The Involute of the Circle, formed by rolling a wheel along a flat line, generates an exotic Phi Spiral! The 12 Beings depicted existed deep in my Consciousness. Thus in the jungle at that time, I taught myself the supreme Art of Sacred Gaiometry, meeting medicine men and living off the trees, having no income, no fear.
