- 32. 15 X was often perceived as a magician, and is thought to have dabbled in alchemy and necromancy. It was said that he would travel about with a black spider in a small box, and that his black rooster was his familiar spirit. X used his rooster to determine which of his servants had been stealing from his home. He would shut the suspects one at a time in a room with the bird, telling them to stroke it. The rooster would then tell X which of them was guilty. Actually, what would happen is that he would secretly coat the rooster with soot. Servants who were innocent would have no qualms about stroking it but the guilty one would only pretend he had, and when X examined their hands, the one with the clean hands was guilty. It was in his mathematical work in 1618 that he referenced the constant Y, though it did not present the constant itself.

Many cultures have their own unique versions of the X. In musical notation the sign indicates when the sustain pedal of the piano should be lifted.
