Recently a reader asked about seeing number sequences all the time, e.g. the clock on a microwave oven, telephone screen, coffee maker, video up-votes or "likes" and so forth. I have also seen a few news articles here & there and this happens to me also, in addition to finding brand new coins on the ground. Most people seem fascinated by number patterns, but I never see explanations offered along with the speculation and guessing the news organizations serve up.
The Committee has answered questions on this subject long ago, but I believe it's worth another visit, at least for us here. I don't believe the general public would even mentally chew on this information, much less swallow & digest it.
