It's called Pareidolia where your brain is playing tricks on you while your conscious mind begins to attach significance to whatever "image", in this case numbers, your brain is playing tricks on you with.
There is no significance to the numbers you are seeing. It's simply like getting a song stuck in your head.
Your subconscious just thinks those numbers are groovy, just like any song stuck in your head, and you happen to notice them a little bit extra because of this brain trickery.
Go get a song stuck in your head, or focus on another set of numbers to get out of this rut.
It's just your brain playing tricks on you.

So, I disagree with Druscilla. But this time, I need to hear his/her answer on something: How do you explain (or, what is the official explanation) that so many people have experienced the 11:11 phenomenon before they've ever officially heard of its definition? For a lot of people, myself included, the experience pretty much happens in a blind test where it just starts popping up, repeatedly, continuously, unceasingly.
And then it happens so much that you start researching it to find out what it could mean. You start asking friends, "Am I crazy, or have you experienced anything like this?"
Are you really going to tell me (and others) that it's still confirmation bias and we wanted to see these numbers (11:11 being the hottest, and most reported sequence) before we even knew it was a phenomenon?
I don't think you, or anyone, can answer this to my satisfaction. I am willing to hear the explanation though.
Why does this phenomenon spontaneously manifest in what is essentially a blind test? And please don't tell me that it doesn't or all credibility will be lost. Please don't disappoint us with a cop-out answer that belittles and dismisses someone else's subjective experience.
As for the OP..not sure what to say about your clock moving a minute backwards. Was it a digital clock?edit on 17-9-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)edit on 17-9-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)edit on 17-9-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)edit on 17-9-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)edit on 17-9-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)
What do you think brought me here?
Well - I believe it has something to do with this.................
"In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams". Acts 2:17
That is what my instincts tell me - and they have served me very well thus far in my life.
Things to consider:
What if the digital clock was never invented and you still used analog time?
Your brain is playing tricks on you.
Take control of your brain instead of letting it run wild.
It's a beautiful thing when you know how to use it, why it does what it does and how it does it to sometimes trip us up.
Live in ignorance, and have fun with your numbers.
When it's 2013, 2014, and the years keep ticking by with nothing of significance happening, well, I'll leave that up to you.
