The folly of Interpreters has been to foretell times and things by this Prophecy, as if God designed to make them Prophets. By this rashness they have not only exposed themselves, but brought the Prophecy also into contempt. The design of God was much otherwise. He gave this and the Prophecies of the Old Testament, not to gratify mens curiosities by enabling them to foreknow things, but that after they were fulfilled they might be interpreted by the event, and his own Providence, not the Interpreters, be then manifested thereby to the world.
Isaac Newton: Observations Upon The Apocalypse Of St. John
God comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.
Two years before the most momentous day in recent history there was a rare total eclipse of the sun, seen over parts of the USA and Europe. In the UK, where I live, the total eclipse corona was first visible in Cornwall on the 11th of August 1999 at 11:11AM BST. In other times solar eclipses were thought to be harbingers of destruction, but nowadays we see no meaning at all in the passing of the moon in front of the sun. Perhaps the ancients were wiser than are we.
The internet is awash with conspiracy theories about the identities and motives of the real perpetrators of the event now universally known as 9/11. While I agree that the official story of what happened on that day may be far from the truth and that there may well have been a government conspiracy of some kind, I would assert that the identities of the earthly perpetrators are ultimately of no consequence. They played their parts in the 9/11 drama, but the director was offstage and well beyond any human manipulation.
I have my own small part to play here, a part which began on that very morning. I woke up to hear an inner voice speak the words Serpent power. I had an idea of what they might mean and I knew from recent experience that something important was happening, so I wrote the words down and went off to work. Serpent power is also called Kundalini energy. According to Hindu mythology, Kundalini is the serpent goddess, who is supposed to lie coiled at the base of the spine. This energy gives us strength and creative power. Serpent power is also the power of anger and conflict: men in battle are supposed to be harnessing Kundalini energy. According to practitioners of yoga, under certain conditions this energy can rise up through the chakras and give rise to a Kundalini awakening, a dramatic and potentially dangerous moment of enlightenment.
I left work early in the afternoon and drove home, unaware of the apocalyptic events unfolding across the atlantic ocean. Around 3.00PM my wife telephoned me to say that something extraordinary had happened and that I should turn on the television, which I did. I then sat there, hardly moving, for eight hours, watching with horror, fascination and an odd sense of unreality as the serpent struck the USA, causing the deaths of three thousand people, the destruction of the twin symbols of global capitalism and the Kundalini awakening of our sleeping world.
9/11 And The Number Eleven
As I absorbed all the news reports and interviews, my sense of the unreality of it all was compounded by something else. I couldnt help but notice a growing string of numerical coincidences involving the number 11. For instance, the date was the 11th, the twin towers resembled the number 11, the first airplane to strike was flight 11 and there were 110 storeys in each building. In the weeks, months and years that followed, I came across many more of them. These included facts that seemed to indicate that the site was historically linked with eleven. For instance, Manhattan Island, on which the twin towers stood, was first seen by Henry Hudson on September the 11th, 1609, as he explored the Hudson river.
Could this string of elevens be accounted for simply by chance? Certainly some of them could. Furthermore, the date of the attack, the target and other elements could have been deliberate decisions on the part of, or opportunities taken by, the perpetrators to assign it a significance. But others, such as historical events relating to the date, were more difficult to explain away. I sensed from the start that a more likely explanation for the unusual frequency with which the number eleven appeared in the facts and figures surrounding 9/11 was a phenomenon described by the great psychologist Carl Jung: synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. It shone out like a beacon, signalling for those of us with ears to hear that 9/11 was imbued with a significance that went far beyond that of other events in history.
The clustering of elevens around the events of 9/11 is well known. Here are eleven of the huge number of 11-related coincidences involving the twin towers and 9/11.
1. The date of the event was the 11th.
2. The twin towers visually resembled the number 11.
3. The first plane to strike was flight 11.
4. There were 110 storeys in each building.
5. Both buildings collapsed to the 11th storey.
6. The towers burned for 99 (9 x 11) days.
7. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.
8. New York was the 11th state to join the federal union.
9. Manhattan Island, on which the twin towers stood, was discovered on September the 11th, 1609.
10. The 9/11 Commission hearings closed on 17/6/04, 1010 days after 911.
11. The 9/11 Commission report was released on 22/7/04, 1045 (11 x 95) days after 9/11.
There is a 1-in-11 chance of any number arising from the 9/11 incident being a multiple of eleven, and many, many numbers can be extracted from the data emerging from the event, therefore it is easy to produce a long and spurious list of eleven-related facts relating to any event. However, some numbers are more significant than others. The flight number of the first plane to strike (the fact that it was first and not second or third also brings it to our attention) is far more important than, say, a serial number on its hull: everybody reporting on or discussing 9/11 thereafter referred to it as flight 11. What immediately struck me as I watched the news reports that day was that many of these significant numbers were in some way related to 11 or resembled it. Bizarrely, this even extended to the TV news reporter (someone I hadnt heard of before, and have never seen on TV again) whose surname was Cviic.
I recently found that the number 11 is also encoded into the precise times that the three WTC towers fell. These were WTC 1, WTC 2 and WTC 7, and the chronological order in which the three buildings fell was as follows:
WTC 2 fell at 0959HRS
WTC 1 fell at 1028HRS
WTC 7 fell at 1720HRS
These numbers, written in 24-clock mode, sum to a multiple of 11, the other factor aptly being a hexagram (Star of David) number.
959 + 1028 + 1720 = 3707 = 11 x 337
I was introduced to gematria in the summer of 2001, through an unusual series of events that were part of a larger awakening I seemed to be undergoing. Initially, I worked only with the ordinal value system, and it eventually occurred to me to calculate the ordinal value of some of the names and places most associated with 9/11. To my astonishment, the number 11 appeared to be a significant factor in many of them and I quickly realised that I had discovered another facet of the eleven phenomenon. Here is some of the eleven-related ordinal values I initially found (1).
Osama bin Laden (o).................................................= 110...................
Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden (o)...................... = 209 = 11 x 19...
New York (o) ...........................................................= 111...................
Nine one one (o) .......................................................= 110...................
Nine hundred and eleven (o).................................... = 198 = 11 x 18...
September the eleventh two thousand and one (o) ..= 440 = 11 x 40...
There are many, many more such signs, involving the numbers of passengers on the flights themselves and other peripheral 9/11 events, recorded on several 9/11 websites (for instance, see september11news.com). These show beyond any reasonable doubt that the events of September the 11th, 2001 were the focus for a huge clustering of elevens. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is the growing evidence that the synchronicities surrounding 9/11 extend well beyond the confines of the event itself. But before we look at this evidence, I would like to show how another number, five, is encoded into one of the three 9/11 targets: the Pentagon.
9/11 And The Number Five
The clustering of elevens around 9/11 is well known and documented. What is less well known is the subsidiary role of the number 5, with which the Pentagon building in Washington DC appears to be earmarked.
1. The Pentagon buildings design is based on a regular pentagon, the simplest five-sided shape.
2. The building complex consists of five concentric pentagons.
3. There are five storeys in the Pentagon.
4. The ordinal value of the Pentagon is 125, or 5 x 5 x 5.
5. The ordinal value of Pentagon is 92, which is a pentagonal number.
The fiveness built into the Pentagons structural features could have been a deliberate planning decision, of course. Those who put 9/11 down to a purely human comspiracy (whether foreign or home grown) might also point out that the streets in Washington DC north of the Whitehouse delineate an inverted pentagram, with the Whitehouse just below its lowest point. But why should the name assigned to the nerve centre of the USAs military operations be linked through gematria to the number five and its basic geometric expression? Certainly this remarkable mirroring of name and numerical value could conceivably have been taken advantage of by those responsible for 9/11, but the fact that this relationship is hidden within the English language in the first place is more mysterious.
The number five also exists in a geometric relationship with 11 and, remarkably, 911: both are centred pentagram numbers. It should be noted here that another centred pentagram number is 151, the ordinal value of Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Remarkably, the locations of the cities of New York and Washington DC show a precise correlation with the longitudinal ordinates 74 and 77 degrees west, these being the ordinal values of the words Jesus (74) and Christ (77). The longitude of New York is 74 degrees, 0 minutes and 0 seconds west. The longitude of Washington D.C. is 77 degrees, 0 minutes and 1 second west.
Finally, it should be noted that work began on the contruction of the Pentagon on September the 11th, 1941. So the Pentagon is also part of the web of eleven-related phenomena surrounding 9/11. Just how wide this web extends is sketched out in the rest of this page.
9/11 And Popular Culture
Several books and films that were released in or around 2001 show signs of having been mysteriously influenced by 9/11, even though they were all created or at least begun, well before that day. Notable in this regard are Oceans Eleven (2001); Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (2001), in which Harry was taken to Hogwarts on his 11th birthday; The Two Towers (2002), the second in the Lord of The Rings trilogy; The Matrix (1999), in which Neo is first seen opening the door to his appartment, numbered 101. The number 101 also featured in George Orwells dystopian novel 1984, in which London is dominated by four monolithic government buildings, the most sinister of which contains the infamous room with that number.
Other well-known and fairly recent films may also contain prophetic information:
In Alfred Hitchcocks masterly film The Birds (1963), the birds begin attacking en masse on the eleventh birthday of Mitch Brenners sister.
The Exorcist (1973) is set in the district of Georgetown in Washington DC and involved a girl who was eleven years old when the malevolent spirit entered her home (this raises the interesting possibility that 9/11 was a kind of exorcism).
Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyessy (1968) featured a huge, rectangular monolith, discovered on the Moon in 2001. The film was based on a short story called The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clark.
The Omen (1976 - 25 years before 9/11) is an apocalyptic tale about the rise of the antichrist, whose name is Damien Thorn. Amazingly, Damien Thorn and antichrist both have an ordinal value of 121, the square of 11.
At the climactic ending of Dirty Harry (1971), Harry Callaghan throws his badge away after a shoot-out with the serial killer. The identification number on his badge is 2211. As well as being a multiple of 11, 2211 is the 66th triangular number. At two climactic moments, Callaghan speaks the famous line about his 44 Magnum being the most powerful handgun in the world (the ordinal value of kill is 44). Another powerful scene takes place at the foot of a giant cross.
In the classic science fiction film The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951 - 50 years before 9/11), an alien called Klaatu lands his spaceship in Washington DC to warn us that mans warlike nature and his development of atomic rockets are a threat to other planets, therefore earth may have to be destroyed. Klaatu decides to give mankind a warning, and briefly considers the possibility of levelling New York or sinking the rock of Gibraltar. Klaatu was deliberately modelled on Jesus Christ. After being shot he is resurrected by his robot Gort. He also adopts the pseudonym of Mr. Carpenter.
In Highlander (1985), antique dealer Russell Nash is one of a group called the Immortals, who come to New York, of all cities, to compete for the Prize (which is something akin to what is called Christ consciousness). The only way to defeat an opponent is to cut off his head, which is close to what happened to both towers on 9/11. There are several interesting ideas in this film, such as the evil Kurgan, a goliath-type figure (the story of David defeating Goliath is a prophecy of 9/11) and the Quickening, a kind of energy that assists the Immortals and which might be compared to the Holy Spirit.
The most famous person to be killed on 9/11 was David Angell (two ls), co-creator of the excellent TV comedy Frazier. I often watched Frazier, which ran for eleven series, from 1993 to 2004 (meaning that 2001 was its ninth season), and was intrigued to see that Frazier Cranes room number in the Seattle tower block in which he lived was 1901.
In Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1978), the aliens introduce themselves to man at a natural monolith called Devils Tower, in Wyoming. Before he goes to Devils Tower the main character, played by Richard Dreyfuss, has psychic visions of the tower, becomes obsessed with them and is driven to sculpt it.
Could it be that, at some deep unconscious level, we have sensed that 9/11 was going to happen? Could 9/11 have sent psychic shock waves backwards (and perhaps forwards) in time, to be picked up and unconsciously expressed by our writers and artists, influenced in a manner similar to Richard Dreyfuss character? If so, what does this say about the importance of 9/11? How far does the influence of 9/11 extend?
9/11 And Recent History
The uncanny timing of the solar eclipse in 1999, which, as I said, began in the UK at 11:11AM BST on the 11th of August, seemed to forewarn us of 9/11. Another astronomical event that may have constituted a sign is the so-called Harmonic Concordance of 2003, where the planets in our solar system, observed from earth, appeared to form the points of a near perfect hexagon/hexagram in the sky behind the moon. Note that this alignment occurred after 9/11, as have other apparent synchronicities. The 2003 Harmonic Concordance peaked on the 9th of November (11/9) of that year. It was also around this date that I produced my first version of this webpage, an occasion that was itself attended by a wave of synchronicities in my life.
Other events in the recent past may have anticipated 9/11. One such event was the great northeast USA blackout of 1965. This infamous electricity blackout, which affected many parts of northeastern USA, including New York, took place on November the 9th of that year. The number of days from that event to 9/11 is 13090 or 11 x 1190.
Armistice Day, the day when WW1 ended, is celebrated on November the 11th every year (11/11), with two minutes silence at 11:00AM.
A recent event that may have had personal significance was a world-famous UFO encounter only two miles from where I live, at Dechmont Law, near Livingston in Scotland. This traumatic encounter involved a landscape gardener, a coworker of whom was a friend of mine at the time. He was working alone in some woods one morning when he encountered an unknown and unusually shaped aircraft. Two spheres emerged from the craft, rolled towards him (leaving tracks on the ground) and attached themselves to his trousers, ripping two large holes in them. The ripped trouser legs may have symbolised the future destruction of the twin towers. The date of this encounter, 22 years prior to 9/11, was November the 9th, 1979.
Finally, Pope John Paul II, the head of the Roman Catholic church from 1978 until 2005, was the 264th Pope, 264 being 11 x 24. He was also the 110th Pope from Celestine II to "the end of the world", according to the prophesies of St. Malachy.
Recent popular culture and historical events therefore appear to have been forewarning us of 9/11, perhaps because 9/11 sent some kind of psychic shockwave back in time, to be unconsciously picked up and expressed in our culture. Post-9/11 synchronicities suggest that perhaps the impact of 9/11 also carried into the future - suggesting that any such effect operates, or is controlled, at level where past, present and future are one.
How far back have the shockwaves travelled? St. Malachy prophesied in the 13th Century, from which we might infer that they have travelled back a long way indeed. Is there any more evidence that synchronicity has a long reach? Lets look at an ancient document full of dates, numbers, prophecies and detailed historical information: the Bible.
9/11 And The Bible
In the Bible, numbers are repeatedly associated with the same ideas, and in this way have been used to enrich the meaning of many biblical narratives. The study of numbers in the Bible is often called biblical numerics, from which I discovered that the number 11 stands for disorganisation, disorder, imperfection and disintegration - all ideas that resonate with 9/11. The numeral 11 itself, consisting of two separate digits, implies the number 2. Therefore it also has the potential to serve as an ideogram for the related ideas of division and duality, associated in biblical numerics with that number. Visually, the numeral 11 resembles the horns of a beast.
At the time of 9/11, I was well on the way to becoming a Christian, and had begun an Alpha Course (2). A feature of the Alpha Course is the Holy Spirit weekend, where participants get an opportunity to have a direct experience of the Holy Spirit. Our encounter with the Holy Spirit took place on November the 11th (11/11) 2001 and was a powerful, life-changing event for me. In fact, it was two days after this that I found my first piece of evidence for a numerical code, and two days after that when the key to the code - itself encoded within a piece of Scripture - was given to my Alpha Course director. As I continued to explore gematria, I came upon the reduced value system, where every letter of the alphabet is given a value from 1 to 9. Under this system, the name Jesus, denoting the man who, for Christians, is the Alpha and Omega of Scripture, has a reduced value of 11.
The other half of 9/11 is the number nine, which in biblical numerics is associated with judgment, endings, finality, fruits and suffering. I didnt immediately find much connection between this number and 9/11 but I was beginning to suspect that 9/11 contained a symbolic message for us and that this message was inextricably linked with Christianity. If the 9 part of 9/11 was also significant this would raise the possibility that 9/11 was some kind of solemn judgment upon humankind.
The other number encoded into 9/11, five, is biblically associated with Gods grace, love and heavenly favour. These are not ideas that spring to mind when contemplating the Pentagon, symbol of the USAs military power. However, the pentagon and related pentagram were early Christian symbols, denoting Christs five wounds, as was the rose, the petal structure of which is based on five. In fact wild roses have precisely five petals and are roughly pentagonal in shape.
Regarding the Crucifixion, it is interesting to note that the eleventh of the fourteen Stations of the Cross, which are representations of Christs Passion found in every Roman Catholic church, depicts Jesus being nailed to the cross. The number of stations was fixed in 1731 by Pope Clement XII.
These associations of number with concept are drawn from the text of the Bible, a document that was becoming of increasing interest to me as I began my Christian journey. This journey had begun three-and-a-half years previously and was accompanied by visions, prophetic dreams and other unusual phenomena - including the most astounding synchronicities. By November 2001 I was being assailed by these divine messages, which peaked around the Holy Spirit weekend and included three signs that my 9/11 investigations were to include a close study of the Bible, in particular, the NIV Bible. I have done so ever since, discovering along the way that within its pages are an incredible treasure trove of references to a future event that would rock the world, sometimes presented as prophecies, but often hidden within biblical narratives. I also began to notice that these stories were usually marked with the number 11, its multiples or related numbers. Incredibly, the numbers were often derived from bible features such as chapter and verse indicators or place values, the creation of which were widely separated in time and place from the writing of the passages themselves. These indicated that the Bible had apparently undergone some kind of teleological (goal directed) evolutionary process, perhaps by means of a very sophisticated weave of synchronicities.
Some of the more obvious biblical references to 9/11 are listed below. The way in which I believe they are marked for our attention will also be indicated.
In this numerically-significant verse, God tells Noah and his sons that he will establish his covenant with them. Amazingly, Genesis 9:11 is the Bibles 217th verse, this number being reproduced by the numbers of the three destroyed WTC buildings and order in which they fell.
In this verse we first hear mention of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by the Lord because they had given themselves over to evil. The obvious thematic connection with 9/11 is strengthened by the digits 9,1 and 1 in the chapter and verse indicators. In addition, this is the Bibles 254th verse, and September the 11th is the 254th day of the year.
These verses tell the story of mans decision to build a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, (Gen. 11:4) and Gods punishment of man for his hubris by confusing the language of the whole world. (Gen. 11:9). This story occupies the first 9 verses of the 11th chapter in the Bible.
This is the unsettling story of God asking Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac. Abraham is about to obey God, but is then told to substitute a Ram, the two horns of which are caught in a thicket. The twin towers represented the rams horns, a connection that, as we shall see, is made again in Daniel. 22 = 11 x 2.
Exodus 27 and 38
The book of Exodus has two chapters devoted to a description of the Lords instructions for the preparation of, and the actual preparation of, the altar of burnt offering within the Tabernacle. The imprinting of these chapters with the number 11 suggests that the twin towers were also a burnt offering. These are chapters 27 and 38, which are the Bibles 77th and 88th; 77 = 11 x 7 and 88 = 11 x 8.
Psalm 119 is significant for being the Bible's longest chapter. This psalm is two chapters after Psalm 117, the Bible's central and shortest chapter, the extremes of length marking both psalms out for attention. The number 119 is a simple reversal of the digits 911 and Psalm 119 is marked with the number 11, having 176 (11 x 16) verses and 22 (11 x 2) stanzas.
Jeremiah 9:11 (NIV)
Jeremiah 8 and 9 concern the subject of sin and punishment. In Chapter 9, verse 11 Jeremiah threatens the destruction of Jerusalem and other towns, which could be seen as a prophecy of the real events of 9/11. I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins, a haunt of jackals; and I will lay waste the towns of Judah so that no-one can live there. The verse is marked both by its chapter and verse indicators, 9:11, but by its ordinal value of 1122, which is 11 x 102.
This verse states In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill. This remarkable prophecy is earmarked with double multiples of the two numbers encoded into 9/11 and the Pentagon: 11 and 5. From the chapter and verse indicators we obtain 3025, which is 11 x 11 x 5 x 5.
This chapter concerns Daniels vision of a ram standing by a canal, whose two long horns are shattered by a flying goat. I think this is one of the most staggering prophecies of 9/11 in the Bible, a view supported by some incredible gematria (see 9/11: Daniel) and by the positioning of this chapter. Daniel 8 is the Bibles 858th chapter; 858 = 11 x 78.
This chapter is the first in the New Testament to concern itself with the end of the age. In a statement that could equally apply to the twin towers, Jesus tells his disciples that, at the end of the age, the temple will be destroyed. Do you see all these things? he asked. I tell you the truth, not one stone will be left standing on another; every one will be thrown down. The chapter and verse indicators give 242, which is 11 x 11 x 2.
In this action-packed chapter, Jesus makes His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a colt, overturns the tables of the moneychangers and causes a fig tree to wither. The similarities between these events and those on 9/11 will be discussed in 9/11: Mark, but for now, note that this is the 968th chapter in the Bible and that 968 is 11 x 11 x 8.
Luke 23:32 (NIV)
In this verse we are told that two criminals were crucified alongside Jesus, one on either side of him. Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. Could the two criminals be represented by the twin towers? Of the four gospel accounts of the Crucifixion of the two criminals, this is the only verse where the chapter and verse indicators give a multiple of eleven and the only one with an ordinal value that is a multiple of eleven. The chapter and verse indicators give 2332, which is 11 x 212. The ordinal value of this verse is 693, or 11 x 63.
John 9:11 (NIV)
John 9 tells the story of Jesus healing a blind man by rubbing mud in his eyes. In John 9:11 the man describes to his fellows how he was healed. He replied The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see. A link to the destruction of the twin towers is suggested by the fact that this verse is tagged with 11 in several different ways: the chapter and verse are 9:11; John 9 is the New Testaments 77th chapter; 77 = 11 x 7. John 9:11 is the 407th verse in John; 407 = 11 x 37. The ordinal value of this verse is 1298, or 11 x 118.
John 13:5 (NIV)
John 13 has some similarities with that of John 9, only this time Jesus is washing his disciples' feet, an act recorded in John 13:5. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped round him." Like John 9, this verse is tagged with 11 to convey its wider import: John 13 is the Bibles 1010th chapter. The ordinal value of this verse is 1232, or 11 x 112.
The Bibles final book, revealing the events to take place during the end times is saturated with elevenness. This is the Bibles 66th book; 66 x 11 x 6. It has 22 chapters; 22 = 11 x 2. It has 404 verses; 404 = 101 x 4. I will end this introductory list with two of the many passages within Revelation that are meaningfully related to 9/11, both through their imagery and through encoded elevens.
Revelation 11:7 (NIV)
Revelation 11 concerns the two witnesses, which, as we read through the chapter, sound suspiciously like the twin towers, especially since they are destroyed. Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Once more, 11 marks the spot. This is the 11th verse in Revelation. The ordinal value of this verse is 1265, or 11 x 115.
Revelation 20:9 (NIV)
This verse tells us in allegorical terms the fate of satan and his followers. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of Gods people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. The fate of Satan and that of the twin towers are conjoined by the elevenness of the verse. 209 is 11 x 19. The ordinal value of this verse is 1342, or 11 x 122.
From this initial survey we can see that 9/11, far from being a tragic but essentially meaningless occurrence, may in fact be the most meaningful historical event since the Resurrection. The power of synchronicity appears to have produced a vast focal point in space and time, identified by the numerous signs and pointers in the events of that day and in the recent past and the near future, in both modern and ancient cultural artifacts, and in historical events. In particular, 9/11 seems to have influenced, or been influenced by, the evolution of the Christian Bible, culminating in the NIV Bible. The ultimate meaning behind 9/11 is to be found in the numerical code housed in that verion of this best-selling spiritual classic, which was imprinted by means of an incredibly sophisticated weave of synchronicities - and which it was my given assignment to uncover.
The other pages on this section of the site details the myriad of ways the NIV Bible has been encoded, principally by the positioning and wording of certain narratives, prophecies and imagery so that they coincide with multiples of eleven and other 9/11-related numbers found in the text and in their numerical values. This creates clusters of meaning that time and again can be seen to be referring to 9/11, indicating that this millenial event had a significance that transcended mere history to enter the realms of biblical end-time prophecy. In fact it appears to have been the event for which the faithful have long been waiting.
1. Recently (11/09), I was criticised on a forum for not mentioning the full name by which bin Laden is known and which is not a multiple of 11. It was also mentioned that there are variant spellings of his name. The two names I have used here are Osama bin Laden, by far the most popular name by which he is known (which currently gets 6.5 million Google hits, against 375 000 for the nearset rival, Usama bin Laden) and Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden, the name he has used for himself since 9/11. There are also variant spellings of the name but these are again much less popular than the above spellings. The full name, Osama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Laden is also, I believe, encoded. Its ordinal value is 263, the standard value of Messiah. This of course is perfectly in keeping with the interpretation given in this website of the New Bible Code.
2. The Alpha Course is a popular introduction to the Christian faith, run by the Holy Trinity Brompton Church, in London.
