I actually spent a few years of my life (about 15) researching everything that I could find on "666" and found almost an endless stream of divergent
interpretations. One could actually author a lengthy thread on the subject.
For example Satanists believe the actual number is 9 ( 6 + 6 + 6 = 18, 1+ 8 = 9 ) as nine is an eternally recurring number. No matter how you multiply
it, 9 always returns to itself ( 9 x 6 = 54, 5 + 4 = 9 ).
Or one could regard the actual number as literally stated in scripture ( six hundred, threescore, and six ) and come up with 600606 or 6002020206.
We have some exceptionally knowledgeable numerologists and students of the occult on ATS. Maybe some will pop-in and elucidate even further.
