Do you believe in the philosophy of attracting what you fear most? What about energy flow, that is, if you give something enough energy, you make it happen?

I had a thought the other day.

In the US, the Emergency telephone number is 911.

Imagine the number of people who have used this number over the years. That's countless people giving the number 911 energy right?

Nearly six years ago, two planes smashed into New York's Twin Towers.

The date - September 11.

The equivalent number - 911.

The destruction of the Twin Towers and resulting devastation of the human psyche across the globe was to me, the greatest emergency situation of modern times.

I just thought it bizarre that such a tragedy unfolded on the calendar's numerical representation of the Emergency hotline.

That's all.

Have you seen that new movie starring Jim Carrey. Supposedly it's about how everything adds up to a certain number.

Was it a bizarre coincidence.... or did the hijackers plan their terrible deed that way? Or do numbers correspond to events in our lives through some unknown force? Interesting thought.

Nathalie said...

Mmmmm. Never thought of it that way.

So... what should the right emergency number be that wouldn't attract such a disaster again???

I don't think we'll ever know if it was coincidence or planned that the attacks took place on this date, but it is bizarre. Higher forces work in mysterious ways.

The emergency number in Australia is "000" least there's no corresponding calendar date, but who knows what else it might represent!

PS Ming - I haven't seen the new Jim Carrey movie. Will have to check it out.

I never ever thought about that and I am guessing most people didn't.

well that certainly is a thought i believe in destiny that things are not coincidence but planned events acted out by us common people, i believe 911 was a sign for humanity to wake up and yes show caution towards the greater emergencies in life. i believe it was also a message for the western world to use capitalism for the greater good of humanity not just to make the rich richer...911 was surely delebarate if not by the hijackers then certainly by a greter power, nice observation bel - interesting topic for breakky on sunday - xxxxxxxxx

I remember sitting on the floor of my apartment (in Chicago) when tha was going on, thinking that they planned it to occur on that day on purpose.

Mabye they did, maybe they didn't.

I've always wanted to know, tho.
