	Unfortunately, not. Emily Sellon came up with that one. I never got a
chance, before her death, to point out the flaw: It does not consider
the empty set, which makes a total of eight (the empty set MUST be
considered in mathematics). 

	I once proposed that the empty set stands for prolaya, and the 7 stands
for manvantara, but got roundly laughed at for my trouble.
