Yes, it’s 9-11 again and worth mentioning some of the numerous synchronicities related to that fateful date. If I had a chance to interview Khalid Sheik Mohammed , who is supposedly behind the planning of the World Trade Center attack, I would ask whether or not the Sept. 11 date was picked intentionally to coincide with the 911 emergency number. Maybe, maybe not.
Whether or not the date itself was a synchronicity, there were countless synchronicities related to 9-11. We wrote in 7 Secrets about the many dreams and premonitions that were recorded related to the tragedy . The use of 9-11 and the World Trade Center in flames in movies seems shocking now. For instance, in the 1996 film Independence Day, a scene depicts the president and his family being evacuated in Air Force One. Actor Jeff Goldblum opens his laptop to watch the countdown and the camera cuts to a close up of the clock: 9:11:01.
Then there’s the 11 factor, starting with the Twin Towers, which appeared as a giant #11 reaching the sky.
- The first plane striking the World Trade Center was Flight #11.
- Flight 11 carried 92 passengers. 9+2=11.
- Flight #77, which also struck the other tower carried 65 passengers. 6+5=11.>>9-11 adds up to 11.
- New York is the 11th state.
- New York City has 11 letters.
- So does Afghanistan.
- George W Bush also has 11 letters.
- Sept. 11 is the 254th day of the year. Those numbers add up to 11.
- 911 days separated the Sept. 11 terrorist attack and the train bombing in Madrid, which happened on 3-11-2004. Those numbers add up to 11.
These synchronicities and many more have appeared on the internet in various versions over the years, but they remain something to ponder on, especially on 9-11.
Finally, here’s what the skeptics say about all of the above. Writing for Snopes.com, Barbara Mikkelson expresses the philosophy of randomness. “… it is but human nature to search for patterns even where none exist. We attempt to impose a gestalt on randomness because chaos is impossible to comprehend, hence our fascination with recurrent themes. We feel something of great import is going on if a particular number comes up time and again, and we are unsettled by it.”
Ms. Mikkelson goes on to say suggest that such an attitude is nonsense, that everything is random and we don’t want to accept it. It’s basically the atheist creed that there is no greater reality, nothing exists outside of the physical realm. It’s a limiting belief, but one that still prevails in mainstream science. It’s a belief that only the mundane world of cause and effect exists.
However, when we recognize synchronicity, it allows us to move our awareness temporarily to a deeper level beyond the every day world where we appear to be separate entities and everything happens through cause and effect, where we seem surrounded by meaningless chaos. Synchronicity is a connecting point to an underlying reality that transcends cause and effect, even space and time.
