What is Sigma 26?

Sigma is the greek symbol that cues summation. And 26 cues the number of letters in the English language. Together Sigma 26 means 'Sum of all letters'. If we were to assign numerical values to every alphabet, every word will add up to a score. That score is what I call Sigma 26. If you take a word like 'Idiot', the alphabet I is the 12th letter, d is the 4th, o is the 15th and t is the 20th. So the Sigma 26 for Idiot is 12 + 4 + 12 + 15 + 20 = 63. Simple, na?
