Is There Magic in Numbers?
With the ominous 12/21/12 having passed, we know that the world is not yet coming to an end. In my circle of friends, the day was taken tongue-in-cheek, with great plans for End of the World parties. None of us took the prophesy too seriously, but it did get us thinking about our fixation with number patterns.
For example, earlier this month, we saw 12/12/12. There will never be a 13/13/13 (a foreboding date if it were to happen), so 12/12/12 was indeed special. Babies born this year on 10/11/12 will have fun celebrating their birthdays, as will those born on 11/12/13 next year. I remember quite a few weddings on Sunday 10/10/10, surely a lucky day to be married.
Number patterns show up in many forms. Just this week, I have been plagued by the number 384. It has turned up several times in my holiday shopping, and when I logged onto ActiveRain one day, my points were 384,384.
What should I do with this number? Play lotto? Blackjack at Foxwoods? Or add all of the digits up into one purified number? That number would equal 3, by the way. Based on Wikipedia's numerology entry, 3 represents communication/interaction. Kind of ironic given the topic of this post.
People have looked for answers in numbers for thousands of years. Some part of us seems to reason that if the numbers are arranged just right, there must be logic to their meaning. It is fun to try to decipher the codes that fall in place from time to time. And who knows, maybe there is a higher being out there trying to send us messages via number patterns.
Until we find out for certain, we will just have to plunder along and try to make sense of the copious amount of information that comes our way each day.
