Just bumpin' around a theory here:
What if 666 refers to connection.
As in six degrees of separation.
What if you divide the human race into three categories, for example, rich, middle class, poor.
And say you could track, human relationships.
So on day A, class 1 becomes completely linked by 6 degrees. On day B, class 2 becomes completely linked by six degrees, day C, class 3 becomes linked
by 6 degrees, and then 'mark', final day, they all become linked together.
Thus, the mark of the beast, is the day, every single human is linked to each other via six degrees of separation.
I'm not sure the 3 categories are financially segregated, but Socrates often talked about the human soul, mirroring the organization of cities, being
divided into three categories. Reason (Gold:Rulers) Spirit (Silver:Warriors) Appetite (Bronze:Merchants & Artisans)
The fact there are three sixes is as relevant as the number 6.
New Testament was originally transcribed in Greek.
Trinity is relevant to Christian Faith, and for that matter in Hinduism, where Brahma, or the atman, exists as Shiva, Krishna & Brahma.
I posted this is another thread, but then I read another post in a thread where the author referred to a psalm by Ezekiel as referring to
'traffic'... & multitudes.
Comments appreciated ; )
Also, off the top: Babylonian mathematics was based on a six digit value system, so additionally, it could just mean, in three limits of
'something', maximum value is reached.
*Just to note, if you're not familiar, the 'six degrees of separation' theory is the idea that all humans are linked to one another through six
