I'm sure we're all well aware of The Hunger Games and its popularity. While there are plenty of topics regarding this book and movie which would be
worthy of discussion, I wanted to bring something up that I noticed. I know a lot of people on ATS are interested in numbers and numerology so I
thought I would post some information I've discovered and see what people think.
I'm not trying to promote any sort of theory or agenda, I'm simply sharing information. Here goes:
I took a look at a few numbers which seem to appear, or even reappear, throughout the book and movie. This is what I found with only a few minutes of
There are originally 13 districts, one is destroyed that leaves 12
Katniss and Peeta are from District 12
Her young friend is from District 11
There are 24 children chosen for the games, that's 2 X 12
11 of the 24 children are killed on the first day, that leaves 13
The two main characters are the only children left alive, that means that 22 children are killed throughout the book.
I then took the names of some of the main characters and ran them through some numerology name calculators. Here's what I got:
Katniss: There are 7 letters and their total is 21. If we reduce this further (which we don't usually with 21) we get 3
Katniss Everdeen, her full name, comes out to 9, with 6 vowels and 9 consonants.
Peeta Mellark: There are 12 letters which add up, according to numerology, to 11
I'm normally rather skeptical when it comes to things like this but I do find it rather odd that these numbers seem to play such a prominent role in
the book and movie. Since this is a conspiracy site, I thought it would be interesting to see what others think.
Given that this series is so popular and seems to be so successful and winning over new fans, perhaps there is something to this?
