Metric verses imperial

The metric system is based on units of 10. This has its roots in the ten sfiros. The metric system is based on the dynamics of 12, this has its roots in the 12 mazalos constellations - signs of the zodiac. The root of twelve (why don't they just follow the 10 sfiros) is revealed in Sefer Yetzira, and further by the Arizal, they manifest the 6 lower sefiros as they are paralleled in the sefira of Tiferes. Tiferes - Splendor is the most defining sefira of the Jews, so it follows that the Jews are above the 12, and are in fact the root of the 12. The twelve tribes of Jacob, 'ha-me-at' the humblest - of all the nations.
