I also had a " Jungian-esque " dream a few nights ago . But instead of exploring the lower reaches of the house I was climbing around the rafters trying to find a way into the attic . But I kept getting distracted by bizarre living dolls and sexually oriented figures in the middle floors of the house . I had forgotten this dream until I read this post . Thanks for the reminder .

Wasn't sure if this got mentioned yet
rickandmorty.wikia.com...

Rick and Morty are often described as coming from dimension C-137, (out of an entire catalogue of the "known" universes, theoretically numbered A-001, and on up?).

Interesting. I'm no scientific nor mathematician, but I think I understand bonds that connect these numbers. In all honesty though, I don't believe that numbers got any truth except the one that the observer is looking for. In other words, we conceive our own "absolute" truth.

Since data comes from perception, then the numbers too are generated by the mind trying to explain the perceived surrounding. Maybe 137 is a constant that connects all minds, maybe the kind that makes 2 or more people to perceive the same data, even from different positions.

As for me, I believe truth/falsehood is just a duality. I believe dualities are parameters that we choose to insert in our perception, our reality to try to find a logic, a purpose of consciousness. They help us cronstruct our own structure (reality) which then brings us to interprete the interactions we perceive around said consciousness.

I think everything comes back to The Wheel: everything goes back to where it once was. I believe if there's an absolute beginning of some sort, it is now impossible to grasp, just like after finishing to draw a circle (perfect cercle without any flaws), it is impossible to see where it began anymore. When finished, there's no more beginning nor ending, or, more specificaly, there's an infinite beginnings where there's also an infinite ends. And everything possible in our reality is just a manifestation of The Wheel. We choose our own beginning point and from there, we can grasp the end of it, but only of the point chosen, not an absolute one, which has disapeared with the completion of The Wheel.

From that point of view, any data perceived, any birth, any death, any consciousness is a beginning and an ending at the same time, meaning the duality begin/end is useless. So what remains? I don't know, I can't grasp it with human concept, with duality. All I'm able to grasp is The Wheel and how, in my opinion, it manifests everything and nothing at the same time.

By the way, great thread, and if there's a universal truth out there (if I'm wrong) then I believe that numbers are a good way to connect dots, which in your thread is really well represented.

Wow it's 11-11 already.
I have been off in my own little universe hahah.

I ran across this in a suggestion list while listening to music today, and it reminded me of this thread...

It's been snowing all day here, but it's actually really nice maybe like 2 or 3 inches but it's melting so can't stick.

I love the mountains.

Which came first, the universe or the number 42? Is 42 correlated with intelligence or independent of it? Was this number engineered or simply the most efficient path?

Maybe god isn't in complete control. Maybe god is a product of 42. Just seems like maybe this cosmic overlord had to color inside the lines and that's weird. It implies that he/she/it is following instructions, or maybe has limits to their power? Intriguing...

First of all thank you for making this thread, its been real fun for me ever since 137 came into the picture...
I found another pop culture / media reference.

I am watching Saved By The Bell and the episode "House Party" (S3 Ep5) has a scene I just had to rewind and pause and take a few pics of.

Screech's parents leave (although strangely it only shows his mother and she even has a few speaking parts, but the word "parents" is used more than once) and he has a house party and his mom walks in and says,

"Screech this looks like a party! And that's a direct violation of Rule 137!"

I think this number just comes naturally to someone trying to think of a random number... I doubt the writers of Rick and Morty and Saved by the Bell knew of its significance. But perhaps our subconscious knows it is a significant number.

I bet if you looked real hard and put out the word for others to do the same, you'd find examples of this number all over the place.

I hate uploading pics on ATS, so I wont do it unless someone wants to see it for some reason... but if you are interested in seeing it, I will. Just let me know by PM. I have captions turned on so you will just see Screech and his mom and the caption saying "thats a violation of rule 137".

I am but I'm basically insolvent now, and I've been totally consumed with getting 46$ each day to afford each night.

I burnt all my money, maxed out the tiny amount of credit, and I am slowly going down the toilet.

It's very possible I could be outside tomorrow night, with zero winter gear in 10° F.

So tonight Im ok, but tomorrow?
I might die tomorrow of exposure, who knows?

This level of stress has me in a constant scramble to get a job here, which apparently is taking longer than expected. I should have been hired by now especially considering how gung-ho I am about it.

Once I'm hired I can relax but until then Im in a daily freak out cycle because I actually want to live.

Damn...

When I was using heroin, during the final two years of my heroin use when things got really bad, I started panhandling for money. I got really really good at it but 50% of that was probably my "baby face". I think it could work for anyone though if A) you have the right sign to match your appearance, an understanding of human psychology is useful here. When I say the right sign I mean what you have written on your sign, and B) you dont mind being dishonest. My sign was about 60 to 90% honest depending on your standards... it was worded carefully to be as honest as possible because that bothered me, lying to people. While my sign had a decent amount of honesty, that dropped to about 10 or 20% honesty for the people who actually stopped to talk to me. I justified it as being better than stealing or hurting people physically. Or selling my or my gfs body.

If that is something you would consider, I could help you with more advice, I obviously wouldn't look down on you for it. The world is not always fair, you cant always be fair either. I made over $100 in about 5 to 6 hours most days. Rain seemed to hurt my profits. Sun helped. Location was the 2nd most important factor besides appearance. Some people actually rub dirt on their selves to look more "homeless". I went the opposite direction. I wanted people to think one of their own had landed in a bad spot.

I'm moving soon, funds are low, i am in debt, but depending what size you are, I have some clothes if you are interested. We are trying to get rid of a bunch of stuff before we move. My clothes range from "urban white boy", to "preppy white boy". I guess I could mail them somewhere? I dunno. Let me know and we will figure something out. Something I hand out to the homeless sometimes is socks. Not always brand new, but just clean socks, good socks. Not holey or dirty looking, i throw those away. But people living on the street need socks.. Oftentimes they will stop what they are doing and change their socks right then and there, throwing the old ones away.

Im not rich, but Im not homeless. I wouldve been, but I just got lucky with women who love me and take care of me... Its one good thing about leaving a trail of 20 failed relationships...SOME of those women still care about me! If I had managed to make my first relationship last over 20 years and then that failed...Id have nobody. (i am what they call "sans family")

Enough about me. Let me know if theres anything I can do to help you. Nice preppy clothes are good for panhandling AND job interviews. I also got offered at least 5 jobs during my time panhandling, so there's that too... you meet a lot of people who want to help.

My lady friend does some somewhat extreme couponing, she always has extra hygeine products for men that she got for free or 10% of the normal price. So let me know what you need and let us send you a care package at least. Pm me and dont be afriad to ask for something else random you need if something pops in your head. I have other people I can reach out to even though I myself may not have much.

I wish I could do much more. But I can hardly take care of myself. Its a truely sad state of affairs. But I'm recovering from a toxic lifestyle so hopefully that can change. Maybe this shouldve been a PM but, maybe someone else closer to you or with more resources will see this and have some way to be helpful.

Also please don't take offense at my offering advice. I know there could potentially be several good reasons why you don't want to hold a sign or why that wouldn't work for you. But it worked for me and I would do it again if I had to, and it worked so well, I felt I would be remiss not to at least say something.

I know we talked a while back but I can't remember if I mentioned the sign holding before. If I did then im sorry for appearing to be pushy. I know youre probably in a kind of sensitive situation. I am sure you've had a million different people tell you a million different ways you should be able to solve your problems. Or, even more frustratingly, having a million people repeat the same things over and over.

Good luck man. Let me know...

I'm ok for tonight. I got into a really nice hotel yesterday night.

About material possessions like clothing, I got way too much stuff as it is and will need to ditch probably half of my stuff once I hit the pavement.

Carrying all that luggage everywhere turns into a nightmare fast. Ideally I need to get rid of this duffle bag and consolidate everything into my backpack and satchel.

Kinda sucks cuz I just bought all these cloths a few months ago lol. Oh well...

The whole paradox is that I can't help but make jokes and have fun all the time with all the random people I meet.

I'm in a great mood probably 95% + of the time.

The way I see it is that I might as well have fun while things are in my favor because any moment the rug could be pulled out from under me.

Tonight has been a blast and I've been crackin up all night. I'm completely sober by the way, I'm naturally prone to laughter.

All holistic systems that embody the divine archetypes exhibit the number 137 as a characteristic parameter. There is NO MYSTERY about this number any more, thanks to the pioneering research to be found here:
smphillips.mysite.com...
and here:
smphillips.mysite.com...
(scroll down to heading "137").
The number characterises a recently discovered mathematical object implicit in the geometry of the Tree of Life. It may be one of the most amazing and beautiful objects ever encountered because it is the polygonal form of the 421 polytope (the 8-d polytope representing the roots of E8, the rank-8 exceptional Lie group appearing in E8xE8 heterotic superstring theory). It also characterises the five Platonic solids, the Sri Yantra and certain other examples of sacred geometry.
A hint of this beauty is:

137 + 248 = 385


where 248 is the dimension of E8 and

385 = 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + 4^2 + 5^2 + 6^2 + 7^2 + 8^2 + 9^2 + 10^2.


If you want to understand what the number 385 quantifies, study the research at the above link (in particular, p. 11 of
smphillips.mysite.com...).

Thank you.

I will dig into it later as I have many pressing matters to attend to currently.

I love long pages that get super deep into reseaech and breaking things down to work them out and seek further understanding.

It looks awesome and will dive in asap and get back to you on what my thoughts are.

Im not sure what your comment to Astrocyte means but I reread his post and wanted to address my "quotes" on my signature.

They are quotes by Mulder in the X Files and I chose them specifically for XFiles fans and to go in conjunction with my thread "I Believe in Your Dreams"

Ok guys, it will take a long time to do this but I will create a part φ to finish up the trilogy. When I say a long time we are talking like 6 months because I've got a lot of other stuff going on. I'll get to it when I get to it.

I will go make some photos today of my new "spot" where I chill and contemplate. Yall will love this, lol, I named this place "Temple of the God" because it's very fitting. I spent the last two afternoons there and it was excellent and I was completely at peace.

I'll try to make the pics later today if I go out there, it's a very long walk generally. Miles.

Oh and I keep coming up with new thread ideas and I'm just going to store that in the mental file cabinet for later use. I figured out some really important stuff about socio-economics among other things.

I feel that most people are trapped in their "own little world" and are out of touch with reality when it comes to specific subjects that need to be addressed properly and from an inside perspective, and I believe that it is important for me to translate and share this information with everyone here because everyone deserves to know the truth. So I'll try my best to address all of these things in threads as the future unfolds.

This 42 - 137 thing was super cool and I will continue opening minds to some really outta-the-box stuff. I'm really happy about this thread series so far and believe that it's worth the effort. It really puts me in a great mood when I think about it.

I hope everyone is having a good day and I really hope yall enjoy the stuff I write on ATS because I do write and share so that I might enrich others lives and expand their thinking. As long as I'm alive I will return here and share with all of you.

Like 3 days ago I was down in a pit of despair, thinking my life was over and I'd never make it out of my personal Hell.

Today I have Hope and my Faith has been renewed, this is a whole new reality for me.

I feel like I can finally breathe and my blood is flowing... The suffocating is relieved.

So stoked about all this reversal of Fortune!
