- I also found this to be extremely silly because 6 x 9 = 42 is equivalent to my birthday (02.04, which is the EXACT center of the Aquarius cycle or as Aquarian as one can be) and 496. I.e. 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124. We are now in the Age of Aquarius, which is said to be a time of knowledge. It's like Douglas Adams somehow knew that someone would come around and figure this out around this time. Or it's quantum entanglement. Or both.
But there is no question in my mind that when the web was created, and "plugged in," the surveillance of this monitor in front of me as I type was already in place, active and a part of our lives, albeit in less participatory forms.
I mentioned the other day on the opening of the new Posse Comitus forum that I must be the only one who is old enough to remember a time before home computing, when people were certainly aware that those flamingoes for your yard were more than yard ornaments......
It has been with us a great while, this watching thing.
It's effect, in a purely physics sense, the way we interpret physics today, has clearly changed the game, for there is not just one observer, but a totally voyeuristic society, all observing, while living......so that the imitation of life, itself, can no longer be distinguished, blending fantasy with reality. The quantum entanglement that collecting, inducing and redistributing narratives has caused makes such inseparable, almost, and then it is easy to erase individuals, history, anything really, and replace and relive with the induction of the next desired narrative.

Agreed. I would argue that those of us who see these correlations have more than likely been living difficult (to say the last) lives and thus are looking for universal answers. I can say this of myself, at least. However, what this data represents is that there have always been those (and will continue to be) who can see this "game" for what it is and can use it against itself. If we share this knowledge with others we can take back the power to govern ourselves.

496 = 1^3 + 3^3 + 5^3 + 7^3.
496 = 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 31 = 16x31 = 2^4(2^0 + 2^1 + 2^2 + 2^3 + 2^4) = 2^4 + 2^5 + 2^6 + 2^7 + 2^8.
496 is the gematria number value of Malkuth, the last Sephirah of the Tree of Life (Otz Chiim), signifying the physical universe. It is the number of spin-1 gauge bosons transmitting the unified force between heterotic superstrings. This number at the heart of superstring theory was predicted in 1984 to be the dimension of any symmetry group that generate forces in 10-dimensional space-time that are free of quantum anomalies. A theoretical physicist has proved with rigorous mathematics that this number is embodied in sacred geometries that are traditionally claimed to be the cosmic blueprint. Examples are the outer and inner forms of the Tree of Life, the five Platonic solids, the Sri Yantra and (according to this physicist) the disdyakis triacontahedron. For details, see the sections "Superstrings as sacred geometries" and "Wonders of sacred geometries/superstrings" at:
I had no idea there was such a thing as a "Happy Number", and it turns out 496 is the first of them less than 500.

I know, I was just looking at that too. What I read was that it is the largest one shy of 500, got all excited, and choked. I do that on math tests too, it's tragic.
Thanks for the heads up. Fun stuff, huh?
P.S. Just wanted to add that I think it's really neat that we are all looking at this at the same time. I've got the calculator out, to protect myself from myself.

Quantum entanglement's a funny bitch, ain't it?

Happy Numbers are amazing. When you graph them as a tree, like this, you can overlay the extensions (the ones highlighted in red) with the Tarot deck to get philosophical viewpoints and more. It's quite interesting.
If you're familiar with a Tarot deck, simply count the cards from The Magician (as card # 1) to the end of the deck, insert The Fool (as card 78) and restart with The Magician as card 79 and continue counting, you'll arrive with these cards as the Happy Numbers:
01 - the Magician
07 - the Chariot
19 - the Sun
44 - Satiety (10 Cups)
70 - Failure (07 Discs)
91 - Death
The Magician ( 01 ) is on its own, and all of life is a miracle, both by biological process, and sheer statistical possibility. The Magician is a wonder-worker, creating the miraculous by his very nature.
The Sun and Death are the Left Hand Path (the feminine, dark, weighty path) relating to the scientific view. Life is possible because of The Sun, and the card itself represents health, fitness, fortune, personal skill, and birth/marriage: all important facets to living a full, and complete life. Death, as a card, represents finality, and transitions beyond the Veil: becoming something new after discarding the current form. At the end of our human life (sunset?) we cast off the mortal coil and move into... well, nobody really knows what. Maybe consciousness survives, perhaps we become ghosts, unite with God, or something else. The only thing we know for sure is that we transition, leaving behind the mortal life (the Sun) and embrace Death.
The Chariot and Failure are the Right Hand Path (the masculine, light, path of freedom) relating to faith, belief, and spirituality. The Chariot, as a card, represents the Journey of Life, and pursuit of eternal being (whether the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone, or achieving the Great Work, they all apply). The Chariot represents our quest to connect with, understand, and operate in a higher realm: beauty, the godhead, Nirvana, etc. Failure, conversely, represents an inherently faulty nature: sin, maya (desire), aggression, discrimination, and all those other things which make human beings unworthy of God's grace, thus necessitating a need for salvation, redemption, and forgiveness; staples of all of the world's major religions.
Finally, 44 is Satiety, the 10 of Cups. Satiety is a card representing perfect balance, lasting bliss, and attained contentment. It is being at peace with yourself, with your partner(s), and your place in the community and cosmos. 44, on the Tree, is the Middle Pillar, the way to balance both the Left (scientific) and Right (philosophic) pillars and achieve living happiness.
All from Happy Numbers.
Happy Numbers are phenomenal things.
