Years ago, I remember my friend Eddie saying that he was seeing the number 11:11 everywhere. This happened in the very early days of the internet, back when there were actual bookstores, so in lieu of googling the info, as one would automatically do now, he headed into his local New Age bookshop and asked the clerk if he had ever heard anyone mention the number 11:11. Indeed he had, he said, and pointed to the back corner of the store, where Eddie came upon an astonishing number of books about these curious digits. He never did figure out what 11:11 meant, other than it was a spiritual sign of some sort, but there was certainly enough written about it.
