I personally prefer The Law of Fives: "ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPROPRIATE TO 5."

With the corollary: "I find the Law of Fives to be more and more manifest the harder I look."

cf. Foucault's Pendulum; the entire novel.
