Who Will Survive Today?

My scientific-minded, unspiritual husband thinks I’m in a number worshipping cult. My obsession (which actually started before we met 3 years ago) is wrapped around elevens; a pair of them to be precise.

Seeing these numbers began whenever I looked at the digital clock near my bedside at night or on the computer screen in my office during the day. I always caught a glimpse of the time just as it turned 11:11. The numbers stared at me as if they had never changed.

When 11:11 or 111 or 1:11 began appearing on receipts, flight numbers and locations of buildings, I knew it was no longer specific to me. A quick google search demonstrated that I was right, in fact there were hundreds of books written on the subject.

There are many theories about the number 11, one of which belongs to the Mayans. An advanced society who believed the calendar would end on 12.21.2012, marking a rebirth of our world. Fast forward 20,000 years after the Mayan calendar is created and we have the cinematic effects of a movie like 2012. For all we know, this could be a grand publicity plot to build suspense for the world’s end. Far-fetched but possible.

So, if you are waiting patiently to witness the end of all days, 2012 is for you. There's California plunging into the ocean, Rome burning, Paris falling, the White House underwater and John Cusack dodging fiery volcanic comets to save his kids.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I have been seeing 11's for 2 years. It's nice to know that I am not the only one. I feel sane again. Lol.
