Oh hey, Sacred Geometry. That weird thing I keep finding whenever I'm feeling egotistical and start Googling myself.n

See, I told you linear time was an illusion.

Actually, from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big bowl of wibbly wobbly timey wimey... stuff.


And what if that 'stuff' turns out to be an illusion? What then? What we will do? Wibbly wobbly around the void a little?

Invincible: For me it is 12:34.


i find 4:20 more up my alley.

WorkingInParadise:In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001 which backwards is 1001001.

It's also a Rush song, isn't it?

For me it's 10.10, but that's just because it's the time every watch and clock is set to for photo shoots.

PreMortem: FTA:"The most popular code of awakening - the one that most people see - is 11:11. This represents the spiraling twin strands of human DNA coming into consciousness."

All I know is it wigs me a little when I wake in the middle of the night and the clock says 1:11. Or start my truck and it's 11:11. If you ask people as I have some will see 2s or 4s all the time. Its really weird.

Google'd the 11:11 a while back and was blown away by all the sites that deal with this. Don't buy the angel or Mayan logic, but its definately a phenomenon.

Cognitive bias I know, but still weird.

/not subby


As a thought experiment when I first read about how people will see certain numbers all the time, I decided to start watching for the time 12:34.

I now see it every damn day.

It's not some spooky phenomenon, it's just your brain.

Having now read the rest of the thread and seeing that others also see 12:34 all the time, I'll note that it was a year or two after 9/11 when everyone was still seeing 9:11 on the clock, so when I started looking it was for a different time, and 12:34 was the first number that popped into mind, because it is sequential.

OK, I admit it, I hated math, and have forgotten most of the esoteric bits over the years... So, can some kind-hearted Farker math-wiz please explain what the frell "11:11=4" means? I honestly don't remember any ":" operator.

Thank you in advance, and have a nice Sunday.

So far as I know : is used in ratios.

e.g. 4:3, for every three of something, there are four of something else.

The idea that a ratio of 11:11 (or 1:1, basically any even ratio means the same thing) is equal to four is nonsense.

People look at a cloud and see a rabbit.
They look at wood grain and they see a face.
They look at a piece of toast and they see Jesus Christ.

Your brains are hardwired for pattern recognition. It is one of the most fundamental and important functions of your brain. And sometimes, it sees patterns where none actually exist because it's not a flawless system.

That's all there is to it.

They're times. 11:11, i.e. 11am 11 minutes (or 11pm 11 minutes), and he's adding individual digits together.

I typically notice 01:28, 05:12, 10:24, and 20:48 on my clock more often than not.

And also the following:
01:01
05:32
07:10
10:10
11:34
11:38
12:08
13:37

HotIgneous Intruder: Yeah. 1 divided by 12 equals 0.0833333338. So what?
Try this on for size:

12345679 * 9 = 111111111

12345679 * 18 = 222222222
(etc)
.


Nothing unusual at all, there, because of the properties of nine. A two digit multiple of nine will always add up to nine, with the singles digit regressing as the tens digit progresses.

mr_a: Oh heavens!

If you construct a triangle with two sides of 11 inches, the third side ends up being 15.55 inches.


Pretty sure it doesn't, pretty sure the third side could be any length you so decide it to be up to JUST short of 22 inches.
 
2012-11-12 12:48:04 AM
All i can deduce from reading that site is the certainty that every time they look at their clocks, they're actually flashing 12:00 continuously.

Take any three digit, non-repeating number (ie 222, 555) and subtract the reverse. The answer will always be such that the 1's place + the 100's place = 9. And the 10's place is always 9.

543-345= 198

532-235= (-)297 (yeah, absolute value only, but still...)

That's weird, but you're missing an eight in your sequence. Your argument is invalid. In order for it to be weird, it needs to be a straight sequence of numbers. Weirder is pi. The longest number ever calculated and proves that there is no such thing as a perfect circle. No matter the resolution you go down to, there's still more calculation to do. It can be approximately calculated, but never exactly. An example below. 2.7bn places of precision... and still more to go. Not a single series of significant repeating digits outside of random chaff.
