[uhbalfru] Leech and Monster

Leech lattice: in 24 dimensions, 1 ball touches 196560 neighbors.

Monster group: something in 196883 dimensions.

these numbers are close but not the same as i had erroneously previously believed.  difference is 323.

there is an explanation as to why they are close, but it is beyond my comprehension.

Monstrous Moonshine involves yet another number, 196884, that is close.
