Hello Hello ATSers,
I just finished watching episode 6 of the (relatively) new TV series Touch
. I find it quite interesting that the authors appear to be
suggesting that autism is the next step in evolution - a topic that I've come across on ATS. There are also hints of a start children
line, but it's too early to make any substantiating claims on this ...
Having said that, this thread is not about autism or evolution or star children ... well, it may turn out to be, but so far I can't make the
Basically, the writers introduced a potential overarching backbone to the show in episode 6 - one that appears to hinge around The Amelia
I did some brief research and it appears that the sequence is the writer's invention. A few people (according to google) seem to write it off as
fiction. So far I can't see a reason to think otherwise - I.e. it appears to be fiction.... [ATS math geniuses please step in and correct me if I'm
However, I do believe the writers are trying to communicate with the audience - similarly to the way that young Jake communicates with his
father. This is why I think so:
1. The episode was titled 'Lost and Found'
1. Take the Amelia sequence, add up the numbers from left to right until the sum is a double digit number, write down the sum, repeat the process
writing down each sum? This process produces the following sequence: 12,16,11 15,14,13,12 .
1. Not sure if it is of significance, but the resulting Sequence of Sums is comprised of the numbers 11,12,13,14,15 and 16 with 12 being repeated
twice, out of sequence of course.
2. Sequence of sums starts with 12 and ends with 12 - thus connotation to 'Lost and Found'
Coincidence? Or are the authors really trying to communicate ? Personally i think it would be a great way to engage the audience and build up the
Opinions, thoughts and ideas welcome
