The word "ka'aba" is arabic for "cube" you can see they have a linguistic connections.

5:97.Allah made the Ka'ba(the cube), the Sacred House, an asylum of security for men, as also the Sacred Months, the animals for offerings, and the garlands that mark them...That ye may know that Allah hath knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth and that Allah is well acquainted with all things.  [Chapter the table]

Ja'ala Allahu alka'bata albayta alharama qiyaman lilnnasi waalshshahra alharama waalhadya waalqalaida thalika lita'lamoo anna Allaha ya'lamu ma fee alssamawati wama fee alardi waanna Allaha bikulli shayin AAaleemun

This part of the verse is reason for questions and investigation and i would apriciate your participation in seeking answers and understanding

"That ye may know that Allah hath knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth and that Allah is well acquainted with all things."

Allah makes it known that the "haraam" or sacred house as is translated is a cube, He does not refer to the stone which lays in one of it's corners in His book but He does make the form of the "haraam" known as being a cube(ka'aba).

Some thoughts : What is a cube?

A cube is a three-dimensional figure having six matching square sides.

A cube in space does not have an up, down, left or right as it would on a surface, same goes for a sphere but unlike a sphere(round) it has 6 sides and 8 corners.

6 is considered a perfect number. 1+2+3 is 6 and 1x2x3 is also 6.

8 The number 8 is generally considered to be an auspicious number by numerologists.. The square of any odd number, less one, is always a multiple of 8 (for example, 9 - 1 = 8, 25 - 1 = 8 ´ 3, 49 - 1 = 8 ´ 6), a fact that can be proved mathematically.

8 and 6 represent space and time. "saa'a" is arabic for a period of time or more commonly known as 1hour, it comes from the word "sa'iy" which means "traverse" as in motion and since the square of any odd number, less one, is always a multiple of 8 i conclude 8 represents space, and 6 represents time because time is what is traversed and not space. There must be certain knowledge why 6 represents time and in what way it does this.

The ka'aba is black because of the garlands, garlands are also mentioned by Allah in the verse above. If we compare the ka'aba and the faithful dressed in white circling it during the hajj (visit with a purpose) it brings the thought of stars and planets going around a point of gravity, a black hole. But we have to remember the words that are written on those garlands. Laa ilaha illa Allaha. There is no godly being except Allaha.

garlands.

 

5:98 Know ye that Allah is strict in punishment and that Allah is Over and again forgiving, compassionate.

5:99 The sent one's duty is but to proclaim. And Allaho knoweth all that ye reveal and ye conceal.

well, it is considered a perfect number because 1+2+3=6 and also 1 times 2 times 3 is also 6. It is the lowest perfect number.

I must say it is called a perfect number, what would you call this number yourself by looking at it's "conincidential" characteristics.

There is no perfect  number so long as the numeric table resides in the human language! I believe that if there were a number(s) to be perfect I'd say 99. first off simple math tells us that 1 is the beginning of the numeric table excluding zero since zero is not a number. 9 being perfect because it ends the numeric table or serves as a transition from single to double digits hence 99.
