In Response To: Re: S'Pht Numbers (Max Etchemendy)

I started cutting and pasting S'pht symbols yesterday. I wanted to take this:



and reproduce it with some 'standardized' S'pht symbols. It got this:


0102030402030105
0203010406070301080309100301110312
130103141503121604010317
09100301 180103 13010314


which is made of 19 distinct symbols: 01 03 07 12 04 09 15 16 06 13 11 02 17 20 05 18 08 10 14. Actually, 20 wasn't in there, but I added it for symmetry.


This term pict reminded me of columns of numbers, rather than words:



So I used it to base the number system on. Here are some guesses:


Base 10: 0 0 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 6 5 9 6 18 7 27 8 54 9 81


Base 3, with special 'compound' numbers" 0 0 1 1 2 2 3 3 6 6 9 9 18 18 27 27 54 54 81 81


Who knows?
