Ten days ago I hit upon a way to link my favorite number 137 to the game/problem/puzzle of The Tower of Hanoi, sometimes called "The End of the World" puzzle because of the attached legend. I even observed that my submission to Prime Curios was accepted surprisingly fast. I guess they liked it. What I hit on was that the first three solutions using 1, 2 & 3 discs is the sequence 1,3,7.
I also found it interesting that the post on page two here by Astro McCordian of the CSETI logo also matches the one-disc solution graph representation of the Tower of Hanoi.
I went ahead and searched for what the inspiration was for the CSETI logo design. Apparently it is from a crop circle.
