09/09/09

What makes the date 09/09/09 unique? Well, today comes once in a hundred years so that counts as something unique. Today is a special day for some people but is a bad omen for others. Here in the archipelago, couples are marching down the aisle thinking that this is a lucky day to start the first day for the rest of their lives. I know of someone who is celebrating his third wedding anniversary today (3 x 3 = 9, so its still significant for them). A news report also showed that people consider today a lucky day to get married.

forbidden cityAccording to yahoo news, a county clerk in Florida is offering a wedding special for $ 99.99. According to the same article, ancient Chinese emperors also consider the number 9 as a powerful number up to a point that the palace complex in the Forbidden City has supposedly 9,999 rooms.

As the wedding bells peal around the country, some view today as the start of a cataclysmic event that may bring the end of humanity as we know it. In the yahoo news report taken from livescience.com, however also says that the Japanese emperors were not fans of the number 9. The Japanese word for nine sounds similar to the word for suffering making it an unlucky number.

I also saw a video on metacafe.com where the narrator says that today is somewhat connected to the number or sign of the beast that is referred to in the Book of Revelations because if you invert the number 999 you get the number of the beast. Another interesting tidbit that the narrator stated was about the particle accelerator in Europe will be turned on sometime in cern particle acceleratorSeptember 2009. He inferred that this will cause a small black hole to form in the vicinity of France and Switzerland, apparently where this particle accelerator is located. This will eventually swallow the Earth in a couple of years. Although he did say that he does not know if this will really happen but he also referred to some of his readings on the predictions of Nostradamus.

Whether you will consider today as a lucky day or an unlucky day will be up to you to decide. Whatever will happen today, will happen. Whatever will not happen today, will not happen. Fate is something that we can change by whatever decisions that we will make although we will never know what our fates will be unless you can see into the future.
