Within the framework of the symmetric universal see-saw pattern, the Fermi mass hierarchy is governed by an intriguing Diophantine equation ( non-negative and distinct). The unique non-trivial solution of this equation 3=0+1+2 corresponds to a geometric spectrum , , , with denoting the see-saw hierarchy parameter, for exactly N = 3 families. This idea is realized in a model where the hybrid, but still symmetric, quark mass relations play a crucial role in expressing the Cabibbo - Kobayashi - Maskawa mixings in terms of simple mass (rather than square-mass) ratios, notably .
