When the second dream occurred, I thought there might be a message behind these dreams. I have basic understanding why we dream, but what fascinated me about these dreams is that, it had something in common, a number, that is, 27.
When I was a kid, I often wondered how people started to communicate. I would think mentally and observe the surroundings of any place new to me. This marveling did not stop until I joined the "Boy Scout" in elementary school, where I learned the basic semaphore signs system and road signs, and practiced them during the Boy Scout camps.
The quest of how ancient people communicate had stopped, but the real challenge is when another thought crossed my mind, that is, "If people in the same culture had developed their own symbols to include alphabet, how then they communicated with other cultures or foreigners that came into their domain?" From my personal experience, the answer is very long and requires pages to cover, but to make this background of my interest in symbolism short, I just refer you to the idea of how Rosetta Stone came about.
[This may be part of God's plan that] today, we don't have to go to the library to do our homework; the Internet makes it possible for me, and for everyone who is hungry of knowledge to delve into this mysterious symbol or anything that of interest. And so I did.
When you GOOGLE number 27 on the Internet, it would display over 5 billion Web pages. The first listing on the results would show "27 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" with a sub-listing that says, "27 Club ...," also known as Forever 27—name for a group of influential rock and blues musicians who all died at the age of 27. Then followed by many local Web pages, depending where your exact location on this planet, that have number 27 in their Web pages. I could go on and enumerate the Web pages that are on the list from where I am at, but you and I know that this would be foolish.
There's a Web site called "27 Project." This Web site tells a little about this strange number and its complex nature. The contents of this Web site are very fascinating.
There was a movie entitled "Chapter 27," released in 2007. The title "Chapter 27" suggests a continuation of J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye, which has 26 chapters, and which Chapman was carrying when he shot John Lennon. Chapman was obsessed with the book, to the point of attempting to model his life after its protagonist, Holden Caulfield. John Lennon, himself, was also fascinated with numerology. And it so strange that, as performer, writer or co-writer Lennon is responsible for 27 number one singles on the US Hot 100 chart.
I have done a lot of research about this number and found so many odd information, including the last mission (number 27th) of Space Shuttle Columbia.
If you are interested about this symbol, I encourage you to do your own research and see what you would find. I strongly believe number 27 is a mysterious number.
Since the second occurrence of this mysterious #27 in my dream, my subconscious had been automatically programmed to attract this number that causes me to pick-up its frequency every time this number comes out on the airwaves. The most common is on the clock or watching sports on television. Many, many occasions where my attention had unconsciously brought me to look at the time in my car, on my computer, or in my wristwatch, when the time is on the 27-minute of the hour. On television, this happened many times, and is still happening; the moment I turned on the set or switch to sports channel, either the score is 27 (or one of the scores between teams) or the number 27 of player’s uniform is focused by the camera man.
I don’t want to convince you about these strange 27 phenomena that I am experiencing; nor I even think that you would believe in this odd story, because, first of all, I believe that you and I have had unconsciously programmed ourselves differently. Using the passage from the Book of Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” If God created us, in His image and likeness, then we are in Him; and He is in us, thus, our life is connected with Him, and He is connected with us, in some way or another, except that we are given different frequencies and energies, that is unique to each of us, that can be switch on or off, and that we are all interconnected. But even if we are interconnected, every one of us has unique life path to walk on. This path is closed when it was handed down to us, for us to discover “who we are,” and the "purpose of our existence." And the same path would only be opened by our Creator, as He is the one that knows our nature or kind.
Why “Digital Life?"
The answer is, Genesis 1:27: referring to our existence; inspired by the image and likeness of God—“Life,” and the development of the digital media, leading to the birth of the Internet (digital communication). I believe that every human being has the ability to (unconsciously) share these analog signals, which computers converted to digital signals, to and from the Internet clouds; and even signals from earth's activities, and from the universe. Our brains (subconscious) capture these signals randomly (most of the time when we sleep) as they pass through. It is up to us to decipher these signals. Our brains have energies or frequencies, by designed, that can capture analog signals--think of it as a "wireless device"--wireless router. In order to use our brains' power, a combination of codes to be established between the Creator and us. The key to match God's code can only be found within ourselves. It is up to us to find our key to match His--"I AM the Way, Truth, and Life!"--"The bread of life."
To connect to the Internet, you need a computing device: like computer, laptop, notebook, iPhone or iPad that has communication card, and of course IP address that is provided by Internet Service Provider (ISP). This communication device, aside from private/public IP address from ISP, uses an internal loop-back IP address 127.0.0.1. Although pinging this IP address requires a full syntax, that is, "ping 127.0.0.1," only code 127 is used by the computer command to communicate its own self. And this is how I came up with the name of my blog-spot—“Digital Life.”
Honestly, I found it very odd that the members of the IP Organization suitably used 127.0.0.1 as the loop-back address that closely coincides with Genesis 1:27.
The title of this (first) blog says, “Introduction to My Blog.” This first blog is not exactly an introduction. As I continue blogging here, there may be topics, posted here, that might not be related to the purpose of this blog-spot. But I will try to make the future subjects (posts) closely relevant to the purpose of this Web site.
I mentioned Acts 2:17, Psalm 6, and Jude 1:23 when I described this blog-spot because without these three verses from the Holy Scriptures, this blog-spot would have never been born. But I am afraid that I'll have you read them, as these biblical verses came to me as materials (dreams). One of these verses had number prefixed to it when it was given; and the next thing I know there are people uprising, food crises, illnesses, tragedies, and natural disasters happening around the world.
Thanks for taking time reading this post. And if you will, please write or share your comment or experience, so may be we can find some answers or understand this mysterious number 27.
