The alarm clock read 6:11 in the very first scene.
For the past 6 months that number's haunted me - it freakin' turns up everywhere. My 6:11 rabbit hole goes very deep, so I won't really go into it
, but to see it in the first scene of a move like this was really unsettling.
Anyway, I first saw it in an episode of the Twilight Zone
(which consequently was about the
end of the world - here's a clip from the episode
), and it stood out to me, so I Googled
it. The first thing that came up in the search was this:
Change Detection: Paying Attention To Detail
I then found a Bible verse in the search, Ephesians 6:11-13
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but
against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything,
The words "this dark world' from the Bible passage then inspired the title of my short story
These Dark Worlds
, and I used the verse as a quote to begin and end the story.
I have since seen 6:11 innumerable times, and I've honestly paused that movie on that scene with the alarm clock - I haven't even continued watching
it yet. I don't know if I want to, given my synchronicities I might take it a little too seriously.
