11-11-11 11:11

"At the 11th Hour of the 11th day... "

The quote refers to the signing of the peace treaty that ended World War One. It was originally known as Armistice Day, but has now been expanded into Veteran's Day. But there are other things going on with this numerical sequence.

Several years ago, I was visiting with Chris and Lise when the clock turned to 11:11pm. Lise noted that just about every time she looked at the time, it was 11:11. She also noted that by mentioning it, she had just passed (or transferred) that on to me. Sure enough, I always seemed to look up from whatever I was doing at 11:11am or pm. This soon became a series of repeated numbers. 2:22. 3:33. etc. This effect has been in my life ever since and continues to this day.

As it turns out, many people have noticed this phenomenon. There are any number of theories about what it might mean. (I'm afraid to count the theories lest there be 11.)  Many people think it will bring extra good luck (seven come eleven). Some believe that the ability to see repeating numbers (which always seems to start with noticing 11:11) are 'trademark' messages from fun loving spirit guardians - who happen to number 1,111. Noticing the repetition, including other numbers repeated, is their way of letting us know that they are here in our lives. These spirit guardians are often called "Midwayers", referring to their their origin between Adam and Eve and evolutionary creatures. There were many thousands of them, mischief makers aligned with the Dark Lord. At the Ascension of the Christ, 1,111 of them aligned themselves with the Master. There is much, much more to that story that does not concern us here. (I think.) The spirit guardians are here to help us, and are to usher in the New Age.

 Those who follow the Mayan Calendar 2012 prediction of a cyclic change or an apocalypse believe that today marks the actual beginning of that cycle. The long count calendar predicts this event for December 21st, 2012, which is the day of the winter solstice - at 11:11 o'clock universal time. Some set the solstice at 11:12, making 11:11 the last moment of the passing age.

Bilbo Baggins left the Shire, leaving a magic ring to his nephew, on his "eleventy eleventh birthday". Today is also the day that Austanspace returns to Brattleboro, if not her beloved home in the shire.

Solar activity peaks every 11 years. In our modern world, these peaks often interfere with electronics and communications.

The Egyptian government closed the Great pyramid today. There were too many rumors of people ready to sneak in and hold mystical ceremonies (Jewish and/or Masonic) there.

And finally, there is a new movie opening in limited release today. It's a horror flick named 11-11-11.

So Happy 11-11-11, folks. Whatever it may mean.

November 11 is the 315th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar.
There are 407 days remaining until the end of time.

And it's Nigel Tufnel Day and Corduroy Day. And, the day I was told to return to Bag End...

I did not know that it was Corduroy day, but I was wearing the only pair I have left. I had to look up Nigel... And, I forgot to note that the Haymarket martyrs were hung on Nov 11.
