although it has been been observed in nature, our understanding of mathematics predicts the existence of a number between 5 and 7.

according to theoretical numeric physicists, this hypothetical "fiven" would have many useful properties, such as being nonprime with different numbers in its prime factorization. if it could be synthesized in a stable form, it could revolutionize timekeeping, beekeeping, and many other forms of keeping

@fool In my timeline it's called six. Timekeeping has never been more accurate since it's discovery.

@fool Beekeeping too. Though logkeeping has become a thousand times more tedious.
