The solar burns are images of interactions between light and matter. 1/137 (the fine structure constant, dubbed the “God number” by physicist, Richard Feynman) is used in equations describing the quantum interaction between light and matter (photons and electrons). 137 is also the numerological equivalent of “Kabbalah” in Hebrew mysticism.
