Below is one view on what the Periodic Table might look like if it were "callibrated" in geometric fashion to the Atomic Numbers of the Earth Alkaline Metals. (red cells)

4, 20, 56 and 120 are all 4 times the sum of squares (1 + 4 + 9 + 16 + 25...). Multiply by 7/4 ...and you get 7, 35, 98 and 210, integers which are row sums of a Rydberg-Ritz array associated with the Hydrogen Emission Spectrum.

Subtract 2*2^2 from 20 to get 12. 2*3^2 from 56 to get 38, and 2*4^2 from 120 to get 88.

Note: The Color Coding for elements 113 - 120 are all tentative predictions. These elements have not yet been discovered. Ditto for 170 & 220.

ELEMENT---- --> SHELL CONFIGURATION --> ATOMIC NUMBER

HELIUM----- --> 02 -------------------------------> 002

BERYLLLIUM --> 02,02 ------------------------------> 04

MAGNESIUM --> 02,08,02 ----------------------------> 12

CALCIUM---- --> 02,08 08,02 -------------------------> 20

STRONTIUM --> 02,08,18,08,02 ---------------------> 38

BARIUM----- --> 02,08,18,18,08,02 ----------------> 56

RADIUM----- --> 02,08,18,32,18,08,02------------> 88

UNBINILIUM --> 02,08,18,32,32,18,08,02------> 120 (one hypothesized "Island of Stability")

What I find particularly interesting about this is that it incorporates within it's structure the rare earth elements.
