Yesterday I wrote a lengthy review about my new Cingular/at&t BlackBerry 8700c phone/PDA/slicer-dicer/messagemonster. I also decided to kill my current unlucky phone number because an opportunity of great passion and magnitude was unwittingly offered to me by the Amazon.com/Cingular/at&t/RIM/BlackBerry cabal that I could not refuse.
In my Lucky Lucky Number article I learned, to my great dismay, that my cellular phone number was UNlucky because it held four 4s and if you know anything about Chinese numerology, a 4 = Death. I have not ordered Chinese food from that guy since I learned he was mocking my “Lucky Lucky” number and not being genuine.
I love kidding around as long as I’m in on the cultural joke! So my phone number was Death x Four and even if you don’t believe in that kind of number energy, once you are made aware that dialing your phone number equals dialing death for some people, you begin to ponder the grander gestures of living where a phone number doesn’t have to kill someone when it is dialed.
Enter the cabal! When you sign up for cellular service with a new carrier you are assigned a new phone number even if you plan to use your existing phone number. Your newly assigned phone number becomes the Service Set Identifier (SSID) for the phone because when you use an old cellular number on a new service that phone number still belongs to say, Verizon, even though you’re on say, Sprint.
The SSID allows your phone to be identified by the new home cellular system and the calls to your old cellular number are forwarded by the system to your “new” cellular number that is hidden in your phone as the SSID. So you’ll always be given a new phone number with a new provider even if you are keeping your old number and there will be a slight delay in getting calls on the new system using your old number because your calls are “forwarded” to you first by the new system.
I received an email from Amazon with the two new phone numbers for our BlackBerrys (BlackBerries?) — and I was planning on keeping our old numbers and porting them over to Cingular/at&t when I decided to compare the new digits against our old numerology thread. The “system” generated these new numbers; I did not request these numbers. No one in the Amazon.com/Cingular/at&t/RIM/BlackBerry cabal had any idea I had a Death x Four phone number.
These new cellular phone numbers were created purely chance, Kismet, and the wonder of the energy of the world. Unless, of course, there was some other magical entity that was looking to give me, and my callers, a higher calling into the realm of the truly lucky and blessed.
I was amazed to see how well both numbers fell into all the right numerological spots! Janna’s new phone number and my new phone number are truly Super Lucky Big Numbers! On an emotional whim intended to laugh in the face of death, I decided to trash the old cellular numbers we’d held for over a decade after first moving to New York City and to go with the Amazon.com/Cingular/at&t/RIM/BlackBerry cabal’s newly assigned cellular numbers so we could be set free from our death chains and bring genuine luck to those who choose to call us.
As we analyze our newfound shucking of death, please keep in mind odd numbers are considered “male” (Yang) and even numbers are “female” (Yin). I don’t know if a zero is counted as an odd or even number so we’ll null them but list them. You may visit this fine site for more information. The appearance of unrepeated digits in the phone number will be ignored for evaluation.
Out of 10 digits my Yang breakdown is this: Six odd numbers Two even numbers Two Zeros Do you sense my testosterone throbbing as you read this? Feel my Yang rising! All my digits add up to 48 and that is divisible by 3 exactly one time and that is odd and good! Here’s how my phone number breaks down into number power:
I have three 9s appearing in a row at the end of the phone number:
Nine is ultimate: Is the greatest of all primary numbers because it contains the qualities of all the others. It is complete in itself and needs no other number to complement it. Nine stands for the final state of completion, the ultimate fulfillment.
I have two 5s:
Five: A very popular number in Chinese culture since it occupies the central position (one through nine) and also reflects the Five Elements Philosophy-water, gold, wood, fire and earth.
I have two 0s:
Zero: Represents nothingness, completion and God. It has no beginning and no end, but is infinite. Zero is symbolized by a circle.
I now have a Super Lucky Big Number!
Out of 10 digits Janna’s Yin analysis is this: Four odd numbers Four even numbers Two Zeros Janna’s breakdown between odd and even is even. All her digits add up to 36 and that is divisible by 3 — TWO TIMES — and that is even and excellent!
Janna has two 2s:
Two: Stands for “doubling up.” Being made up of 1 and 1, two is the number of co-operation, the balance between two opposite poles, yin and yang, man and woman. A very popular Chinese saying affirms that “Happiness comes in Twos.”
Janna also has two 0s. Janna also has two 5s. Janna now has a Super Lucky Big Number, too — though mine is slightly more Super, Luckier and Bigger!
If you are looking for some Yang to balance your Yin or some Oddness to boost your Evenness — I am but a phone call away. Dial my new digits and feel the power of getting lucky simply by using your fingers.
