The number twelve is symbolic of the creation of the universe as it represents the division or fractionating of unity (God) into twelve individual distinct vibrations or tones. This is most readily seen in music. If you take a string instrument, much in the same manor that Ptythagorus did with the monocord, you will find that there are exactly 12 notes or tones before the series repeats. All repeats or octaves are related to the original note or vibration by powers of 2.
Getting back to the number 12, 144 equals the square of 12, i.e. 12 x 12. We know that there are 24 hours in a day, which is divided into 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. There are 60-minutes in an hour and 60 times 24 = 1440 (The 12 tribes of Israel is 144,000). Twenty-four equals two times twelve, which is the musical octave of 12 and is represented in the 24 elders, seated around the throne of God. The apparent declination of the sun is zero at the Vernal and Autumnal equinoxes and reaches it’s maximum declination on the summer solstice at +24-degrees. The minimum declination is reached on the winter solstice at negative 24-degrees.
Dr. William H. Schuessler of Oldenburg, Germany published Shortened Therapeutics in 1873. This eminently practical work concentrated on just 12 simple mineral combinations, or salts, which he believed to be crucial to the health of the body.
He identified 12 "tissue salts", which he located in every human cell. These tissue salts or "Cell salts" are vital mineral constituents of the body. Combining with organic substances in the body to produce and maintain the infinite number of tissue-cells of which the human body is composed.
