Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because 10 is 01 backwards? I don't know... There are so many reasons why 10 is a good number (they can be multiplied and divided by with ease, they only have three letters in their spelling, it's easy to remember, it's the very first two digit number when counting from one onwards, etc... )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Of the four "perfect numbers" (3,7,10,12) the symbolism of ten  ordinal perfection is the only perfection that natural humans can even approach. While man's perfection falls far short of Gods perfection in all things, we can strive and achieve some measure of success with ordinal perfection. We can form a perfect cube, a perfect triangle, and so on. And even if we fall short of perfection in the actuality of these things the conceptual, or mathematical perfection of such is attainable for us. We cannot aspire to divine perfection on our own. We cannot aspire to spiritual perfection on our own. We cannot attain governmental perfection without God. Thus ordinal perfection, as symbolized by the number ten stands out as linked with the natural, the carnal (of the flesh, as our ten fingers literally are) and the world, and yet still perfect.
