Once YOUR MIND attaches significance to a set of numbers, it notices them, and "marks" them as significant. If someone else tracked your "number seeing" over the course of the day, (someone or something objective) it would become clear that you see tons more insignificant numbers than significant numbers. But because your brain makes a big deal out of numbers it has already decided are significant when it happens to see them, you assume that seeing them itself is significant, when its not.
Thats the scientific explanation simplified. But Im sure the magical explanations will be much more appealing.edit on 6-6-2011 by Illusionsaregrander because: (no reason given)

Thanks for the input. I would dismiss this whole thing if I was seeing the numbers during the day...which I do not. I only experience this when I awake from a sound REM sleep. Hmmmm.
