There is definitely an 11:11 phenomenon. I have experienced it for several years and your explanation is entirely inadequate to explain the fact that
so many are seeing it, and that MANY ARE NOT.
Let's hack away at your logic to start. Yes, 11:11 on digital clocks occur twice a day. Digital clocks also show 12:36, 5:47, etc. By your logic, we
should see those numbers repeatedly, just like we're seeing 11:11. Further, digital clocks are not the only place this number is seen. Therefore, our
chances of seeing 11:11 are much greater than twice a day. Microwave oven timers, addresses, counters, time stamped documents or email, etc. are just
a few of the other locations where we see this number with unusual frequency. Digital readouts have been around since the mid-70s, yet it is only
within the past several years that I've seen this number repeatedly and with unusual frequency. My observation of this number coincides with that of
others -- most people have just noticed it in the last several years as well. There is something here that cannot be denied.
As far as what this means, I have no clue. Everything we read about this is pure speculation, but simply because we have no explanation as to why this
happens doesn't mean it isn't a genuine phenomenon and outside the norm. When so many people are experiencing this, you cannot ascribe it to
Your best bet is to say "ok, it happens, we just don't know why" rather than entrenching yourself in a pigheaded position that almost seems
frightened of the possibility that something exists other than this physical reality.

You do see those other clock times repeatedly.
Since they are disorderly, like random noise, your brain is filtering them out. Like it would with random noise.
Also, you are really just making my case for me. All of those readouts don't prove a phenomenon exists, they just prove that you're even more
exposed to a chance to see an orderly number and remember it.
There is no meaning, it's just a random chance that you are looking at a clock or readout in time to see an orderly number. You've probably seen
just about every other clock time as much, but 11:11 is more memorable than 10:43 or 12:05. You only think you're seeing it more, when really...you
are just noticing it more.
I don't doubt that it is "happening" to a lot of people, a lot of people are exposed to digital displays. It's still just a whole bunch of people
noticing a certain repeating number.
My "best bet" is to use my own experience to judge what I see/hear/read about. You call me pigheaded, but you're not even willing to consider that
it's not a "magical" phenomenon. So, I call you a hypocrite.
It's funny how you mention non-physicality. Well, this is happening with people and clocks. I can actually touch both, heck I can touch both
simultaneously. That is hardly "other than this physical reality".
BTW, you don't know anything about what I believe. Other than, that I don't think a magical mystical 11:11 thing-a-ma-jig exists. You certainly
don't know my stance on non-physicality and have no real business trying to assume what I do or do not believe.
