I figured out most of the positioins except the 5 and 7 positions. 5 = RANK([pi,((S**1)**5)) 7 = |pi, L(7,3)| On the 5 position, I am guessing S is a sum series. I am not sure if the power is a 1. As for the 7 position, I think the L is a Eulidean norm vector.

No idea about the seventh position, though.

I believe you are right and confirms I am on the right track. The S^^1 is a circle vector bundle. I read that the rank of a vector bundle is the dimention of its fibers. If raise to the 5th power, the rank then is 5. Cool.

The L in here is the least common denominator which is 21. The pi (sub 1) of (21) is the number of prime numbers except the first one from 1 to 21 which is 7.

cos(pi) is -1, ceiling of (3.14-(-1)) is ceiling of 4.14 = 5.
