I’m not much of a numerologist. I know some people who are, and who ascribe mystical powers to numerical coincidences. There are a lot of reasons I don’t get into such things, but the most compelling reason I don’t is because dates and times are purely arbitrary things that humans have overlaid on the uncaring backdrop of natural events. There is no reason that today is “08/08/08″ instead of any other combination of numbers other than that an arbitrary “beginning” calendar date was set by some religious academics some thousand years ago or so.
I might be more interested in such numerical coincidences if calendars were tied to some sort of astronomical events or even human events. But since they aren’t, I pretty much find such arbitrary arrangements of numbers to be interesting, but not compelling.
