 The Number of the Beast | Ask MetaFilter

If there had been a different number of observable planets, I wouldn't be surprised if the ancients would have 'played' the numbers to end up with seven - e.g., not count the sun, or add in a comet, or whatever (the way, I maintain, we did with the colors of the rainbow).
