At first there were four. Then there were over a hundred. Now there are sixteen.

Is it relevant that 16 is the square of 4?

Is it relevant that 100 is a perfect square?

The number of major land masses on earth? Pangaea to present day?

Is it to do with reproduction/ life-cycle of some living thing? Cell Division?

Are you talking about living things? Objects? Pieces of objects?
Is a living thing responsible for the increase in number and then the subsequent decrease? Is a non-living thing responsible?
Is a natural calamity relevant in any way?

Is this living thing that is responsible for the increase and decrease a human being? an animal? a plant? Is it the same living thing that isresponsible for both the increase and the decrease? Is it relevant that the numbers started from 4? Could it have been 3? or 5? Is it relevant that it decreased to 16, instead of back to 4?

No Is it relevant that the numbers started from 4? Yes Could it have been 3? or 5? Well, it could have been, theoretically, but it wasn't. This is a true event.

is air one of the four things? you may as well answer this one, I'm guessing, "yes"?

I couldn't help trying to study the rot13 without the decoder. If gur = the, then ryrzragf = elements?

would this be something taught in:
physics?
earth science?
biology?
math?
mythology?
theology?
