Hi, Is anyone seeing 11 to often, like 11:11, and/or other strange digital numbers combinations?

Peace
Lena

Yes, its called time and we use it in every day life
and may i ask what has this got to do with aliens&UFOs?

Hell, I see 11... I really see 1111:1111 cause too many of these: DRINKIE TIME

So I see 11 11 11 11 all the time

I think that the reason we see so many patterns in numbers is because we only have 10 digits to use. I bet these patterns wouldn't show up so much if we had 20 fingers to count on and 20 different numbers to use. What about the 2 fingered aliens who count in binery? they must see 1111 all the time.

(after thought) umm no that wouldn't work, they would have to be aliens with two tenticles for arms to count in binery wouldn't they.

There are actually several threads on this. Yet another example of how the boolean search won't hit against things I know are out there. I tried it 9 ways to Sunday and couldn't get them to come up.

SO! If somebody jumps your butt about starting this - tell 'em I said - YOU FIND THE OLD THREADS!

ummmm sorry valhall, but you just prompted me to try a search and I came up with this

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I put 11.11 in the first field and clocks in the second.

but I was probably just lucky cause I sometimes have trouble too with the search.

I should add that I did a search from the beginning and not just the last three months, but I agree that there are a lot more threads that should have shown up also considoring how much the topic has been disscussed

I see that number combination usually twice per day.

Seriously though. the human brain is great at noticing patterns like that and picking them out of the random garp. Here is my theory on 11:11.

You probably look at a clock many times a day. When you do, part of your brain uses that info to tell you what time it is. When 11:11 pops up, not only does the timetelling part of your brain fire, but also the pattern recognition part, so in theory, you are actually using more of your brain when looking at this number than others that appear on the clock. This is the case only with digital clocks. You hardly ever notice 11:11 on an analog clock.

That is my theory.

I know what you are talking about, and i dont think it is pure chance. I have seen this same thing for many years.way to many times for it to be coincidense .
although when i did some research on it , it came up with some pretty funky explanations everything from Angeles.to people who are of the light to well you get the picture . and its not just purley a digital phenom.

Something similar happens tome all the time. I don't see 11:11 as much but more 9:11, I've been noticing 9:11 a lot for several years. what does it mean????

Thanks infinite...
I just spent 10min cleaning my mon' and keyboard.
That was a waste of beer, S.
P.S: LENA...even a non functioning CLOK (sic) will be at
11:11 twice a day.

pantha, i know nothing about math but could 1111 be binary to?

And a damned good one at that

I agree.

I had to reply because just the other night I looked at the dgital clock on my cable box at home and it was 9:11 and it seemed like it took way longer than 60 seconds to change to 9:12, so long I began to think the clock had frozen or was broken.

1111 in binary is 15 in decimal

I used to see 7:47 on clocks a lot before 9-11.

This lets you search any site that has a poor internal search

infinite, thanks. So is binary analog? That would explain why
the U.S. will not adopt the metric system. It's just too expensive.
I'm ranting...

i have no idea, all i know about binary is that i have to learn it aspart of my IT course.

Binary is based on two numbers, 1 and 0. On or off. This is the language that computers use at their core.

Analog refers to any type of non-digital display, such as a clock that has hands that move around it, or a speedometer that has all the speeds on it and a needle that points to your speed and moves up and down through that range as your speed changes.

That solves my heap of speeding tickets, i just realized the
speedo in my car is digital and my wrist-watch is digital.
I get the digits mixed up when i'm running late.
