I refer to the Hebrews as the cult of 10. They were obsessed with the number 10. To them 10 was the perfect number. They gave 10% of their income to the church in a proto-tax, a kind of insurance, they called it Tithing (giving the tenth portion).There were 10 commandments, 10 plagues, & 10 Sephiroth in the Sephir Yetzirah.
As time went on and Proto-Indo-European expanded farther West, we developed a ten month calendar that would later be altered with 2 invasive months. Septemper, October, November, and December come from the Roman Numerals, “Sapta”, “Octa”, “Nova”, & “Deca” and the two invasive months were named after Julius & Augustus Caesar marking the mid-point in the PAX Romana. The Etymology of the word “Decide” comes from the Roman practice of cutting off the head of every 10th soldier who of a Legion who had failed egregiously in their responsibilities (decimate).
