This Friday, the Nov. 11, 2011, a date when three 11s are alligning for the first time in a century. Many of us are eying on the significance of this date. At one side numerologists are predicting on the basis of their numbers and at the other side psychologists are denying by stating it the ‘Apophenia’. At the 11th second and the 11th minute after the 11th hour, the date and time will form a 12-digit palindrome. It will be 11:11:11 on 11/11/11.
11, a very strange number
Psychologist says it’s Apophenia
This is a tell-tale sign of Apophenia. When someone finds out about the phenomenon, they subconsciously start keeping track of all the 11s they see. Our brains can't help noticing the repeating digits, and seeing them as meaningful.
“Fascination with dates is a part of myth and symbols in human mind which always strives for some strength beyond itself that is why all the auspicious and omen becomes necessity” says Alok Bajpai, a psychologist from NIMHANS.
11 Stands for illumination
The number 11, according to her, stands for illumination. Illumination your true self of who you are. It's about saying yes to illuminate our lives with love, peace, joy, success, abundance, health, freedom, wealth, and everything that we deserve.”
A sextuplet moment
Tom Meltzer writes in The Guardian, "We have had, since 2000, 10 such sextuplet moments, from one minute past one on January 1, 2001, to 10:10:10, on October 10 last year. This Friday's alignment, however, is the only one to consist entirely of a single digit, and — assuming we don't suddenly switch to a calendar with 22 months — will be the only moment of its kind for 100 years."
