11:11:11 on 11/11/11

There’s a whole bunch of ones happening right about now. That’s because it’s 11 minutes and 11 seconds past 11 am on the morning of the 11th day of the 11th month in the 11th year of the century.

Indeed, it is 11:11:11 on 11/11/11. (At least it will be in South Africa soon enough – see below for early posting rationale. Results may vary in your locale.)


Now you may think that this is just another so-so set of numbers, of dates and times, coincidentally arranged in a neat repeating string. And you’d probably be right.

Or would you?

“I started experiencing this rather bizarre occurrence when I was forty years old, at first I thought they were coincidences, I would stand with my back to a digital clock and something made me turn around and I would notice that the time would be 11:11. These incidents intensified. I would be checked into hotel rooms on floor 11 room 1111.

I started noticing these digits on computers, microwave ovens, cars, documents, etc. I decided to write about it on my website.

I was immediately inundated by hundreds of emails from all around the world. Individuals were telling me their own 11:11 stories, almost always saying "I thought it only happened to me".

It is difficult for me to decipher what this is all about but my intuition tells me its positive."

Uri Geller

It seems Geller is not the only one with a bit of a double 1 fixation. Aleister Crowley allegedly liked the number 11 too. It seems to be connected to the Illuminati as well.

Gosh, even hobbits and Winnie-the-Pooh like a drop of elevenses. And most notably, so too does Paddington Bear!

Perhaps more signigficant to many people in Commonwealth countries around the world is the fact that the 11th of November is Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day or Veterans Day) – a day of observance and reflection to remember the members of armed forces who have died in the line of duty since World War I. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918; hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice ("at the 11th hour" refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 a.m.)

One last mention of people who think that the number 11 is of importance – the producers of the about to be released motion picture aptly titled 11-11-11. (No indication of a South African release for it though).

There is a second equally disturbing trailer for the flick here: which suggests that perhaps a lot of very bad things are going to be happening on 11-11-11.

Which is why I’ve published this post just a little earlier. Just in case you understand. You never know…
