Yeah, it's a totally subconscious thing that your mind does on its own - whether you really want it to or not.
It was only after I had seen a lot of posts on it here that I started NOTICING the number everywhere.
You're always seeing it, but it's only important when you notice it. For you, because you've become "sensitized" to the number sequence, you
notice it more often.
For me it was also the number 42. After reading The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I started noticing the number 42 start appearing everywhere.
It wasn't that it was, it was just that I'd notice that particle string of numbers more often.
WORST example was when (as a Canadian) I noticed how many times I said "eh". Once I started noticing, I started to stop saying it. It freaked me out
because I felt like I had lost part of myself! It wasn't untill I forced myself to stop noticing (just as I've done for 11:11) that I was able to
just say it as part of my normal vocabulary again.
Obviously I don't type it as often though...
