What Have We Known about Number Six
Contemporary Physics
There are
6 Quarks
(12 Quarks and
Antiquarks)
Quarks are fundamental matter particles that
are constituents
of neutrons and protons and other hadrons.

It is apparent, too, the importance of the basic
prime numbers
2 and
3
in electric charge values.
Actually, in the system of numbers
on the base of 3,
both +2 and 1 for quarks are n^{},
and 2 and +1 for antiquarks are n^{+}.
6 Leptons
(12 Leptons and
Antileptons)
Leptons
are fundamental particles that have
no strong interactions.

In the system of numbers on the base of 3,
the electric charge values of leptons are n^{~+},
and ones of antileptons are n^{~}.

In contemporary
mathematics,
a perfect number
is a positive integer
such that it is equal to the sum of its proper divisors
6 = 1´2´3
= 1+2+3
So,
6 is a perfect
number
The Pythagoreans assigned to
6
the perfections of all parts
because it is formed by the multiplication
of 3,
the first odd number beyond 1,
and 2,
the first even number.
This figure medieval
scholars considered a
macrocosm symbol
.
Goethe's Faust was gazing at it
in a book by Nostradamus
"
In these pure lineaments I see
Creative Nature's self before my soul appear." 
Translation by G.M. Priest (lines 440  441)
Legend has it that the emblem was
used by the Biblical King David
(hence the name 'Magen David,' or shield of David).
Kabbalistically,
the hexagram symbolizes the six directions of
space,
the divine union of male and female energy.
