Didn't really know where to put this one so move if necessary..

There are many, many other significant facts revolving around the number 12, these are just a few I would like to bring to your attention.

Twelve is a composite number, the smallest number with exactly six divisors, its divisors being 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

There are twelve basic hues in the color wheel; 3 primary colors (red, yellow, blue), 3 secondary colors (orange, green & purple) and 6 tertiary colors (names for these vary, but are intermediates between the primaries and secondaries).

King Arthur's round table had 12 knights plus King Arthur himself.

There are 12 face cards in a card deck.

In English, 12 is the number of greatest magnitude that has just one syllable.

There are 12 inches in a foot.

There are normally 12 pairs of ribs in the human body.

There are 12 cranial nerves in the human body.

In German the name of the duodenum (first part of the small intestine) is Zwölffingerdarm and in Dutch the name is twaalfvingerige darm, both meaning "twelve-finger bowel".

Most calendar systems have 12 months in a year.

The Western zodiac has 12 signs, as does the Chinese zodiac.

We are dictated by the 12 numbers on the clock everyday.

The basic units of time (60 seconds, 60 minutes and 24 hours) can all perfectly divide by 12.

A 'dozen' is a reference to the number 12 (eggs are sold in dozens).

The number 12 is very important in many religions, mainly Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and also found in some older religions and belief systems.

In the Ancient Greek religion, the Twelve Olympians were the principal gods of the Pantheon.
The chief Norse god,Odin, had 12 sons

The importance of 12 in Judaism and Christianity can be found in the Bible.
The biblical Jacob had 12 sons, who were the progenitors of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, while the New Testament describes twelve apostles of Jesus; when Judas Iscariot was disgraced, a meeting was held to add Matthias to complete the number 12 once more.

There are 12 days of Christmas. The song Twelve Days of Christmas came from the traditional practice of extending Yuletide celebrations over the twelve days from Christmas day to the eve of Epiphany.

Similarly, Eastern Orthodoxy observes 12 Great Feasts.

In Twelver Shi'a Islam, there are twelve Imams, legitimate successors of the prophet Muhammad.

In Hinduism, the sun god Surya has 12 names. Also, there are 12 Petals in Anahata

The Book of Jude contains much numerical symbolism, and a lot of the numbers mentioned have 12 as a divisor. 12:1 mentions a woman — interpreted as the people of Israel, the Church or the Virgin Mary — wearing a crown of twelve stars (representing each of the twelve tribes of Israel).

Furthermore, there are 12,000 people sealed from each of the twelve tribes of Israel, making a total of 144,000 (which is the square of 12 multiplied by a thousand).

Finally, within each of us, we hold a complex 12-chakra system

The second to last point I made concerning the 12, 000 people sealed from each of twelve tribes of Israel, making a total of 144, 000. This number 144, 000 rang bells in my ears and it reminded me of something I read from a Pleiadian channelling recently

“You think you are just one being and how can your opinion matter? Well it matters. It matters a great deal. Once you understand that it is you who have created a toxic world from your inner emotions you can heal it by working internally. If 144,000 out of the 6 billion of you can see this and make a change, you can create a new template for others to follow and will begin to see a change in the planet.

Yes, each of you matters a great deal…”

In case anybody is interested in that last part I’ll provide a link with references, as it is quite the riveting read!

Does this type of significance connect to visually seeing 11:11 or even 12:21? I'm curious because i'm a very skeptical individual yet always see these number everyday.

Yes I myself have been seeing 11:11 more and more often over the past 2 or 3 weeks.

It is a strange phenomenon, and there are many threads on here that may give you some insight on the matter.

Thanks for the contribution.
