lo and behold, the power of the human brain.

this little phenomenon you just displayed has a name. it's called the Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy.

what this means basically is that since the beginning of man, your brain has been pre-programmed to recognize patterns everywhere. this is logical in a natural environment where learning patterns is your main method of surviving your harsh environment. the ability to recognize patterns is deep-rooted in our system and we still employ it everyday in almost all of our actions.

in other words: we are inclined to see matches everywhere and automatically and subconsciously eliminate any mismatches. this makes "facts" like the ones you summed up seem feasible and even a bit scary. here's the truth though: there's a million things these two persons did not have in common yet you (and we, even if we like it or not) can only see those things they do have, making it seem obvious that "they have to be connected in some way!!".

what you showed us is purely a human instinct-survival thing and holds in fact little to no truth or relevance.

hope i helped you burst your bubble.

It is true though that just because one is paranoid doesn't mean one is wrong. Same applies here.

of course not, never said it means absolutely nothing. it's good to be suspicious and i'd never tell someone they're paranoid for stating such similarities. however, it's important to consider all aspects of things and in this particular case there's little behind it.

I say when you go for conspiracy theories at least have one that has overwhelming evidence and which makes sense. This is just some number-based drivel that doesn't.

Well now, if there were overwhelming evidence then it wouldn't be much of a secret conspiracy, would it?

No, but the opposition could label it a conspiracy theory, which would in some cases lead to it being rejected solely because of that.

I've got something like that going for me, I see the nr. 108 everywhere. Creepier still is that 108 is a very important number in eastern philosophy/religion, somewhat like 3 and 7 in Abrahamic religions.

As long as the dark foundation of our nature, grim in its all-encompassing egoism, mad in its drive to make that egoism into reality, to devour everything and to define everything by itself, as long as that foundation is visible, as long as this truly original sin exists within us, we have no business here and there is no logical answer to our existence.
Imagine a group of people who are all blind, deaf and slightly demented and suddenly someone in the crowd asks, "What are we to do?"... The only possible answer is, "Look for a cure". Until you are cured, there is nothing you can do.
And since you don't believe you are sick, there can be no cure.

Not to mention, it's the sum of the numbers. :xD:

I had a similar thing with 56 when I was younger. I was playing Toca Touring Cars, and most of my split times ended in 56, 'twas quite weird. 56 is now my favourite number... maybe I was brainwashed. :lol:

I blame Black Ops, Bob


Despite how I like 2 and 22 and 222 and all the 2s, I never get to see them anywhere...I don't see any recurring numbers for me. Maybe I'm just too dense to see coincidences like that.
