What Makes The Number 2000 Special?


The transition from 1999 to 2000 is based on our ten vinger-counting, the decimal system. This was an invention of mankind. To examine why 2000 is 'really' an important number, you have to look at other systems as well. For instance:

System
10....................1999.........................2000
9......................2661.........................2662
8......................3717.........................3720
7......................5554.........................5555
6....................13131........................13132
5....................30444........................31000
4..................133033......................133100
3................2202001....................2202002
2........11111001111............11111010000

Only in system 2, 4 and 5 a significant transition shows up. This is however explainable: the number 2000 was chosen because of it's properties in system 10, which is 2 x 5. Of course 4 is 2 x 2.
A bit strange is 2000 in system 7: 5555!


The Number Of The Beast: 666

In the end of times the number of the beast, 666, should appear. The theory goes that 666 points to kapitalism, symbolised by the barcode found on almost every product that is to be sold. The first, the middle and the last bar and number is 6.

I come up with something else: 6 + 6 + 6 = 18. Now calculate 666 written in system 18 back to the decimal system and you'll get 2058... end of times?

Nostradamus wrote the number of years in 3 digits, leaving away the first one. So, 1999 should then be 999. That looks alot like 666...

1999 = 1998 + 1. 1998 = 3 times 666...
