The abbreviation נ"ט (for 59) comes up many times anyway (especially in older printings of ש"ע and רשב"א). It's usually not too hard to tell from context.

comment do we really have free choice?
Amichai, welcome to mi.yodeya and thank you for your informative link! Is there an equally rigorous treatment of the concepts and logical progression developed there as they are carried forth by the Jewish philosophers or other sources?
