Top Ten Reasons Why Four Is a Better, More Significant Number Than Five

PositronWildhawk
I like five, but four is a more significant and more cool number. Sorry, keycha1n.

The Top Ten

1 There are 4 dimensions in relativity equations

I stick two my list (horrible pun right? ) that says two is the better number. Because it is! - RiverClanRocks

2 There are 4 confirmed fundamental interactions of physics

Recent cosmology may prove the existence of a fifth, which I have been researching recently, but now I've made this list, part of me wants the dark energy to be driven by repulsive gravity and not quintessence. - PositronWildhawk

Would you be saddened if another fundamental interaction was discovered? More to research, more money for a physicist! - keycha1n

Unified theory, Kiteretsunu, treats the interactions as one equation, given that they can act as one on the smallest measurable levels, but macroscopically, their effects and properties are vastly different. Plus, we're not at a stage in which we can assume the standard model to be complete. Further development of it is now more than likely due to the recent Higgs discovery, which could potentially give the standard model the vacancy for new particles, possibly including a new gauge boson. - PositronWildhawk

3 4 is the smallest composite number

This is why I always wear four on the baseball field. It's the best (and my favourite) number. - PetSounds

If it makes you guys feel better, I don't even know how to play baseball! - keycha1n

4 Space in 4 dimensions is the highest-dimensional space featuring more than three convex regular figures

5 4 is a divisible number

Trying to share four cookies between two people? No problem. Trying to share five between two? You'll have to split a cookie! This is why imperial units matter. - PositronWildhawk

So is 12. A divisible number. 12 has more factors than 4. I added one item to my list which WILL TURN THE ARGUMENT IN MY FAVOUR. - Animefan12

Four cookies between 3 people? You'll have to REALLY split a cookie! - keycha1n

6 There are 4 base types in DNA
7 The number 4 is considered a death warning in Japanese culture

I thought you LIKED Japan? Let alone, living! - keycha1n

That's Chinese culture not Japanese

8 4 is the most infrequent digit in the known digits of pi

Most of these items have something to do with math, science, or physics. But then again this is one of PositronWildhawk's lists after all. - RiverClanRocks

Oh, and the 4th character of the number Pi. Considering "3", "." and "1" then comes "4" - keyson

9 The number 4 was used in ancient calendars for predicting lunar cycles

We know approximate it to four weeks, but the measurements then were incredibly accurate without the technology we have today. - PositronWildhawk

10 Atomic number of beryllium

But 12 is the atomic number of Magnesium which is more reactive than Beryllium. So boo yeah - Animefan12

The Contenders

11 4 is a Lucas Number
12 4 is the most common number on this list
13 You can yell "four" at a golf course and scare everybody
14 4 dimensions in Schrodinger mechanics
15 4 is spelled with 4 letters
16 PositronWildhawk's 4th published list remained 4th most popular for a long time

My fifth list, on the contrary, isn't such a big hit. But it was my third that got me sudden popularity, and that makes me proud of it. - PositronWildhawk

17 5 is spelled with 4 letters
18 4 is cosmic
