I believe 66 represents free will and "spiritual mobility," for lack of a better term. Free will in the sense that it has the potential to become 616
(the real mark of the beast, according to some) with 1 representing animal nature or 606 (a reference to the zero point and the Merkabah/the 6, or
soul contact in the personality).
I feel it's a signpost marking the two paths of materialism and asceticism. The first thing that comes to mind is the cross of matter and the
crossroads thing (Route 66 actually has a crossroads-themed restaurant). Route 66 is also now Hwy 96, which kind of ties into the Hiram story (King
Solomon's chariot/Merkabah or divine chariot he built and its number symbolism).
I found it interesting how the numbers with Hiram's chariot seemed to be about 6 and 9 and 2 and 3, which I feel may be referring to the focus on
development of the mental body in man (moving on from the first two bodies). Judging from the symbolism's amount of references to soul growth and
overcoming lower nature, I'd say Hiram's 66 was more about the 606 rather than the beastly 616/666, although King Solomon is pretty suspect when it
comes to demonism.
I think 666 refers more to the sublimation and precipitation of matter/spirit in general. A funny thing they seem to gloss over in school is that
carbon-based lifeforms reflect that number on the molecular level (carbon has 6 protons, 6 electrons and usually 6 neutrons). When you tie the idea of
all lifeforms being carbon-based into the whole "Lord of the World" thing, then yeah it could be a bit devilish in that regard, but I think it's
generally about humanity and its relationship to matter and evolution.
I've been interested in 66 and 606 for awhile now myself, having found it with me a few times in life. I never thought it was any sort of demonic
reference (although others did) and am glad you made a post about this, because I just found out while looking at a list of things that happened in
1966 that my main online persona, named after Dr. Zhivago (1966) is another 66 reference. The US Department of Transportation was also founded in '66
apparently; I found that curious since it supports my spiritual mobility idea.
Just for fun I'll add that my unique ID for this online community I used to be a part of also happened to be 66, and I found out I was born at 6:06 am
not long ago when I had to get a copy of my birth certificate. As long as it's not 6:16 and I don't catch myself speaking backwards, I'm not going to
worry about it.
And since the first Batman came out that year, I'll leave you all with this:
