    I do not know a single thing about math, so lets keep the answers in English please

    My journey began after i watch a documentary about Nikola Tesla, right after that I watched a episode of Ancient Aliens......I recall the documentary saying that tesla said something about if one could understand the power behind 3 6 and 9 then that person would hold the key to the universe. On a Ancient Aliens episode, they said that Pythagoras claimed that every problem in the universe can be reduced to a triangle and that everything in the universe has a 3-part structure. I find it strange that both these great minds have said the same thing, there must be something more to it.

    So is there a relation between what tesla and Pythagoras said?
    what exactly does it mean if everything can be solved by reducing the problem into a 3 part structure?
    has this theory ever been verified? is it still accepted in modern day science?
    Are they saying that you can literally solve any type of problem with the numbers 3, 6 and 9?
    for instance, if i wanted create a device that would turn light into dense matter ( i dont want to turn light into dense matter, i am only using this as a example ) would I be able to use the numbers 3,6 and 9 or a triangle as tools to work out how to do it?
    it sounds to me like they are saying there is some sort of trick we can use to solve any problem without needing to know much about what you are doing.

    We should use these numbers to build space crafts and wormholes!!

    Pythagorean theorem. It relates to right-angled triangles.
    It is not possible to have a triangle with sides measuring 3, 6 and 9.

    Most "documentaries" about Tesla are bullsh*t.

    right after that I watched a episode of Ancient Aliens
    ALL "documentaries" about Ancient Aliens are bullsh*t1.

    I recall the documentary saying that tesla said something about if one could understand the power behind 3 6 and 9 then that person would hold the key to the universe.
    Evidently this "documentary" fell into the category of "most". Tesla may well have said it2 but A) it's drivel and B) it should be kept in mind that guy was (especially in the later stages of his life) more than a little gaga.

    On a Ancient Aliens episode, they said that Pythagoras claimed that every problem in the universe can be reduced to a triangle and that everything in the universe has a 3-part structure.
    Not quite true: he did, say that (in his opinion) all relations could be reduced to number relations.

    I find it strange that both these great minds have said the same thing, there must be something more to it.
    A) They're not the same thing, and
    B) There's nothing whatsoever that prohibits "great minds" from holding ridiculous ideas.

    So is there a relation between what tesla and Pythagoras said?
    No.

    what exactly does it mean if everything can be solved by reducing the problem into a 3 part structure?
    Nothing, since everything can't be "reduced to a 3 part structure", never mind "solving" that problem.

    has this theory ever been verified?
    It's not a theory, it's a claim (unsupported).

    is it still accepted in modern day science?
    It never was accepted by science.

    Are they saying that you can literally solve any type of problem with the numbers 3, 6 and 9?
    They may have been saying that but it's far from demonstrated let alone true.

    for instance, if i wanted create a device that would turn light into dense matter ( i dont want to turn light into dense matter, i am only using this as a example ) would I be able to use the numbers 3,6 and 9 or a triangle as tools to work out how to do it?
    No, because the idea is nonsense.

    it sounds to me like they are saying there is some sort of trick we can use to solve any problem without needing to know much about what you are doing.
    Then they'd be (greatly) wrong.

    We should use these numbers to build space crafts and wormholes!!
    Bullsh*t ideas don't build things.

    1 Unless they point out that A) there's not a shred of evidence for them and B) any claims of such evidence are bullsh*t.
    2 Although - not surprisingly - I can't find a provenance for the (alleged) quote. It could well be yet another "internet invention" by/ for Tesla fanboys (most of whom are near-clueless about the guy's actual achievements).

    Edit: moved to Pseudoscience.

    The Pythagorean theorem is about science and logic, whereas TV documentaries about Tesla and Ancient Aliens are not. You cannot hope to ever understand anything about the former, if all you do is watch the latter.

    If you have a genuine interest in maths and physics, then the only option for you is to sit down and learn these things. That takes time, determination, effort, and lots of patience. There are no tricks here, and there are no shortcuts.

    So the answer is no, you cannot build a spacecraft or understand anything about wormholes by using the numbers 3,6,9. It's nonsense.
