My views of the "Threes" phenomena have changed over the years. Whereas many decades ago I began collecting various patterns-of-three examples as if they constituted some fundamental universal law, I have come to realize that many of the so-called universals exist with what may be termed an auxiliary pattern. Namely, a 3-to-1 ratio that I alternatively describe as a 3-into-1, 3-from-1, or 3-as-1, though these proportions can be turned around to read 1-into-3, 1-from-3, or 1-as-3, whether one uses numbers, letters, symbols, sounds, etc., mix or match as you will. . .

The above paragraph is only an excerpt. Herb has an amazing site. I encourage you to read more at http://threesology.org. He also has laminated poster for sale! You may contact him directly at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
