Interesting post, and sounds like you share a bit in common with the creator Tim Kring, as I discovered his son is autistic. Just watching this
series now while I'm working in Australia, and saw the Amelia sequence episode 6 this morning, thoroughly enjoying it, although it seems I'm about 7
months behind you guys on this forum.
I like how you've arranged the numbers there.
I presume you mean 8 being representative of the symbol for infinity?
I noticed though with your 1+6+1 = 8 that you are showing the first 4 numbers of the number Phi, the golden ratio, which is expressed as a rational
number as (1 + squareroot(5))/2)
Back in about 1998, I was playing with a calculator, while I was working in Kuwait. I had read Peter Lemesurier's book, "The Great Pyramid
Decoded" when I was a student in Scotland. His observation that the tan of the angle of the sides of the great pyramid of Giza was close to equal to
the root(phi). i.e. tan (51.85 deg) = root(phi).
I was wondering what this number could be used for, except for symmetry, since it is known as the golden ratio. Anyway, while I was playing with the
calculator and the number phi (I was using 1.618), I tried squaring it. I noticed that the square of phi looked like 1+ phi. So I ended up writing
an equation phi^2 = 1 + phi. Then re-writing it as a quadratic equation phi^2 - phi - 1 = 0. Using the formula to solve quadratic equations gave me
two values for phi. (1+ root(5))/2 or (1-root(5))/2. So phi is approx 1.618 or -0.618. Unfortunately, this is not a new discovery I found out
later, once I'd read some maths book on phi, but I did discover this equation on my own without reading a book.
These numbers are used in financial charting, I later discovered, and funnily enough if you square -0.618 you get another one of the numbers used,
0.381966.
I think this episode is a play on the Fibonacci sequence of numbers. Worth a look on Wikipedia.
What many people report noticing is certain numbers appearing frequently in their daily lives. I was in Adelaide about 3 weeks ago, and kept seeing
the number 22 (time 22:22)and 23 along with 11. In Numerology, 11, is the number of spirituality. 22 is called the Master number, and 23 represents
a person balanced in mind and spirituality from what I can remember from a reading given by the late Edgar Cayce.
I liked the episode with the guy with 22:22 tattooed on his neck. 22 is referred to as a master number.
Daniel Goldman wrote a book on numerology called the life you were born to lead. I discovered I have the birth number of 38, which reduces to 11,
which alleges an influence towards spiritual things. Tim Kring I discovered five minutes ago when I thought about it, also is a 38. So perhaps an
explanation for his creations being biased towards spiritual-like things such as psychic powers, numerology, etc.
Great show though, and off to enjoy episode #7. Hmmmmm, 1 divided by 7 has a repeating sequence of numbers 0.142857142857...142857 7 chakras, 7
endocrine glands in the body, 7 days of the week....
