Number 13: When You Keep Seeing It

There is a strange thing going on…and I don’t know what might be the cause of it.

For some time now – I’ve been seeing something – I had a constant interaction with the number 13. 13 in here, 13 in there, by looking at the clock, in different places – it just pops into my sight. I just liked a page about a movie earlier – and after clicking the button I was registered as the 13th person to do so. I just realized it just after that…

I know life isn’t as simple as we perceive it and there are always things related to us that we will never know. Driven by curiosity I wanted to know about the number I encounter every day. I know that others might see that number often as well, but in my case – I do it repeatedly.

I started to think that somethings is wrong – but if I think about it – maybe it’s just a code or something.

Life’s a logic game. Everything has a dual existence and we don’t have monkeys as ancestors. We have a purpose and we are here to play our part in this game.

So – 13 – has also a dual significance. Everything is shaped as being good and evil. The world was just created like that and God let freedom between the two of them.

The number 13 receives both good and evil symbols in interpretation.

13 is a prime number, divisible only by itself – standing as an independent notion. It is unique and combines elements from other numbers like “1”, “3” or “4” [1+3].

It is said that this number brings the test, the suffering and the death. Christians say that this number is a representation of the Last Supper, formed by thirteen people. The number led to a tragedy – to death. Thirteen is also associated with the devil, the beast. The 13th Tarot Card is Death.

In the calendar year there are 13 Moons and the interpretation of this deals with mystery, emotions and magical existence. We see that 13 is an anomaly. If we take the cycle of time considered as being 12 [the circle is complete after 12 hours], than 13 is the one that restarts everything. Renewal, a new path.

The Mayas believed that the time is divided into several cycles.

According to them we are living in a cycle which possibly began on August 13, 3114 before Jesus Christ and will end on December 22, 2012. The given date corresponds to the fifth and last cycle of the Earth which will generate the destruction of the world.

Is it really true that this is a sign that something bad will happen? In history, this number was associated many times with bad things.

On a Friday 13th in 1307, the assembly of the Knights Templar were assassinated.

The New York Times wrote on January 13, 1968 an article about the suicide song which is a sad song composed over the loss of love. And examples can continue.

I wonder if there is something greater expecting us and if this life it’s just offering us clues about an absolute realm. The mystery of existence – when will we decipher it? And more importantly – if things aren’t random – why do I keep seeing the number?
