Christian denominations consider seven to be a holy number because Genesis says that God rested on the 7th day and man was created on the 6th day. Because God rested on the 7th day, that is the reason for the observance of the Hebrew Sabbath on the last day of the week. The 7th day of the week is indicated on the Hebrew Lunar calendar containing 13 months of four weeks each. According to the American publication, the Orthodox Study Bible, 777 represents the threefold perfection of the Trinity. The number 777, as triple 7, can be contrasted against triple 6, for the Number of the Beast as 666 (rather than variant 616).
777 is also found in the title of the book 777 and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley pertaining to the law of thelema.
In other traditions and teachings, seven is seen as the perfect number that holds creation and the universe together. Religious or mythological cosmology refers to seven heavens, ancient Indian spiritual texts detail seven chakras and esoteric teachings describe seven planes of creation.
In Unix's chmod, change-access-mode command, the value 777 grants all file-access permissions to all user types in a file storage system.
