Mystery of The Number 27
Sighting and strange occurrences

  • Paul Tracy, CART race car driver won his first world title in Champ Car in 2003. He had a 27 point advantage over 2nd place in the championship. He’s one of my favorite drivers and has been trying to win the CART championship for 12 years. 
  • Twenty-seven = The number of world championships for the New York Yankees after defeating the Philadelphia Phillies to win the World Series in six games.
  • Twenty-seven = Babe Ruth’s number multiplied by Roger Maris’, three and nine. It is also the number formed when combining Derek Jeter and Mickey Mantle’s number, two and seven.
  • Twenty-seven = the number of doubles for Derek Jeter in 2009 and the amount of doubles Jeter now has in his postseason career after his double in the clincher.
  • 7 + 2 = 9: Years between the past two titles. The longest such drought was 18 years, which happened between 1978 and 1996, and this one is the third-longest in team history. The second-longest occurred between 1962 and 1977.
  • 7-2 = 5: Derek Jeter, Hideki Matsui, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera.  The only five Yankees remaining from the 2003 World Series loser.
  • Darrell Rasner. The last Yankee to wear No. 27 during a game, back in 2007. Joe Girardi currently sports the number.
  • “The Bankers Case” on the U.S. Version of Deal or No Deal
  • Law and Order (t.v. show) – The show is centered around the 27th precinct.
  • On June 30th, 2006 the Simpsons Episode “Girls Just Want to Have Sums” a scene has a very funny 27 sighting.

  • There are 27 steps of Puja. Puja is a religious ritual that Hindus perform on a variety of occasions to pray or show respect to God (or gods).
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST’S 30th birthday was 1 Abib[Nisan 3787] which was
  • Thursday, March 27th, 27 AD, whereupon “the word of God came unto
  • John[the Baptist]“[ref. Luke 3:1-23]. Recall that this date was
  • precisely four hundred eighty-three[483] true lunisolar calendar
  • years after the date that Ezra had left Babylon with Artaxerxes’
  • decree to restore levitical rule and the people to Jerusalem. Mormon leader Brigham Young had 57 children with 16 of his 27 wives. Matthew 27: Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection 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. But if one takes Christ’s baptism in A.D.27 as the terminus of the 4000 years of Old Testament chronology, then one should add a further 30 years (to reach A.D.2027) before Christ will begin to rule on earth. This latter date is most interesting because the last time a command was given to rebuild Jerusalem (with its walls) as Daniel said would occur in the Seventy Weeks’ Prophecy was in A.D.1537 when the Turkish ruler Suleimon gave such an order. To summarize then, we have the chronological tree that employs a plan of seven thousand years, or one week, a day representing one thousand years. The Bible demonstrates exactly four thousand years followed by prophetic indications for the remaining two thousand years to the return of Jesus Christ to this earth. The year for the completion of the “end of the age” is 2027. This date can be calculated three separate ways and each way yields the year 2027! There must be some mistake with the date, because a 1999 religious ruling by Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmad Yassin says that the date of the establishment of the Islamist state in Palestine, on the ruins of Israel and in accordance with his understanding of Torah prophecy, would be in 2027 – that is, 40 years after the outbreak of the first Intifada. There are 27 books in the New Testament of the Bible. In the article on PI you notice 4 digits that are significant:
  • 3279. the 27 is in the middle of these 4 digits. And 3 x 9 = 27.
  • It is God’s divine fingerprint to prove the Bible is the true and living Word of God. They appear after counting 27 places after the decimal, which is God’s way of pointing us to the Trinity. 3 x 3 x 3 = 27. from the 3 27 9 you can see:
  • Old Testament = 39 books
  • New Testament = 27 books There are 27 generations from David to the Christ according to the Gospel of Matthew. The 27th (3x3x3) book of the Protestant Bible edition contains 3x3x3x30 verses. The 3rd book contains 3x3x3 chapters and 3x3x3x3x3x3+130 verses. The 3 first books of the Bible have 3x3x13 chapters. In the appearances in Dozule, in France, Jesus dictated 27 Latin sentences to Madeleine who however does not know Latin. The 27 Masters who pursued the murderers of Hiram. It is at the age of 27 years old that Jesus precluded to his evangelization, according to visions of Mary Agreda. The last book of the New Testament, the 27th, is the Revelation John and his feast is celebrated on December 27. For the Indians, the god Soma was accompanied by 27 women. The book of the Acts of the Apostles in the NT uses on the whole 27 different numbers, which are numbers 1 to 12, 14, 15, 20, 40, 70, 75, 120, 200, 276, 400, 450, 3000, 4000, 5000 and 50000. The number 500 is used 27 times in the Bible. Among the 365 different numbers found in the Bible, 27 of them are prime numbers, counting the number one. According to Alfred Weysen, twenty seven is a lunar symbol, indicating the light in darkness. It is the symbol of the divine light. 19/11/2027 – cure for cancer prophecy 9=3×3 symbol of Holy Trinity. We live in a 3 dimensional world….. So if the Holy Trinity is everywhere…it would exist in all dimensions… 3x3x3 = 27. After a work on the “City complex” on Mars according to Viking images, there are in the measurements a lot of connections with Jesus. It means merely the number 27. The first image of the Face was illuminated in an sun angle of 27º. The whole complex (from the western pyramid of the city to the little crater pyramid) is capable into 27 units. Some angles of the objects have included the number 27 (54º). That all means the number “9″ (total of the digits). “9″ is the “number of Mars” – AND the “number of Jesus”! (see Linda Goodman “Star Signs”, 1987.)

  • The key elements in the above excerpt that we’ll focus on here are the HAND, the number 27, and the idea that there was once a universal language spoken with hand gestures sometime prior to the event at the Tower Of Babel. When I first approached Stan a couple years ago to get his opinion on the alphanumerics work I was doing with the English alphabet, he strongly implied there was probably no point in trying to establish or discover a system of gematria using the English alphabet. He did say, however, there is a connection between the English alphabet and the Hebrew alphabet but he seemed reluctant to explain just what that connection actually is. With that in mind, I continued the work with the English alphabet despite his apparent rejection of the idea. Recently I decided to apply this simple form of alphanumerics to his findings as described above and came up with some interesting results. Using the formula of A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on, the first thing I found was this: HAND =27
  • That was a nice one right off the bat, seeing as how (1) I found the number 27 encoded within the English alphabet when the letters from the opposite ends of the alphabet are combined into pairs, and (2) there are 27 letters in the Hebrew alphabet when all the vowels are included. Take a look at the illustration of the hands. I seem to recall having seen old paintings of some Catholic saints raising their hand in this 3-finger configuration. If my recollection is correct, I wondered what this “hand sign” might mean. It would be interesting if it related to the following: HAND OF GOD = 74 = POINT = JESUS = LUCIFER
  • Two hands, then might be thought of as 27 + 27:
  • 27 + 27 = 54 = TONE = VOICE = BREATH
  • RIGHT HAND = 89
  • LEFT HAND = 70
  • 89 + 70 = 159 = THE FIRST BREATH BOTH HANDS = 72, mirror of 27 and also:
  • ONE+SIX+TWO = 144
  • THE THREE TONES + HAND = 189 = THE TONE IS THE KEY HAND OF GOD = 74 JESUS = 74 LUCIFER = 74 Do Jesus and Lucifer each represent a HAND OF GOD? ENGLISH = 74
  • HAND x 2 = 54 = VOICE
  • Is English somehow connected to the voice of God through our two hands? Is this a clue to the connection between the English and Hebrew alphabets? Remember, THE GOD OF ISRAEL = 144 = NINE IS THE KEY HAND=27=9 The Hebrew alphabet is composed of 22 letters but, with the vowels included, the number of letters is 27. The number 27 is also encoded in the structure of the English alphabet and can be found by combining A+Z=27, B+Y=27, C+X=27, and so on through the entire alphabet. HEBREW(61) + ENGLISH(74) = 135 = THE NINE KEYS
  • From: Related Links The number 27 is the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet (when the 5 vowels are added to the 22 consonants). This may be a symbolic link between the Hebrew alphabet and the Roman/English alphabet, which might lend some justification to the idea of using the Roman/English alphabet as a tool of gematria.
  • More at: Replace each of the letters in the name “Lucifer” with the number of its position in the alphabet (L=12, u=21, c=3 etc). Multiply these numbers (12*21*3 etc), and you get 3674160. Add these digits. Voila! You get 27!
  • Loretta got a full-time position at Penn State and the offer letter was presented to her on June 27th. Her favorite number is 12 and the salary ended in 012. Thus our connection comes with the number 27 and 12 was presented in the same sighting.
  • In the first month at my PSU job I come to the conclusion that my team needs a Web programmer to assist with our projects. After putting the requests through HR and getting approval the job is posted on Penn State’s Web site. Each job has a unique ID and it mysteriously happen to be 27072, which is interesting for multiple reasons. One, it starts with 27, but it also end with 27 in reverse. Also, the number is a palindrome, which is the same number forward and backwards. Soon after that I met Loretta for lunch and our customer number was 000000027.
  • My daughter, Adriana, was born on November 1st, 2006 at 12:27am, which is 0027 per millitary and hospital time. 12:27am has a unqiue property since that 1+2=3, 2+7=9 and 9×3=27. Also Adriana’s unique hospital ID was 2772.
  • 2004 Stanley Cup playoffs – Every year our department at C-COR has a hockey pool and everyone puts in $10. After the season is over the person who wins takes the money and throws a party for everyone. So really the money won is spent and all things become equal and everyone has a good time. Well I never wanted to be in it because I didn’t care about hockey. Well they begged me to be in it this year and the way it works is that every week the guy sends an email out with the team choices and how many games each series will go to (max of 7). If you get the right team you get a certain number of points and if you pick the correct number of games in the series you get a bonus. Well I told the guy that I didn’t want to do anything for this hockey pool so right now put me down for 7 games per series and in every team choice pick the top seat and that’s it. No favorites, no math, no analyzing anything. My picks were pretty much already determined from the start. Also in-case of a tie breaker we had to pick the number of goals scored in the final series. Of course I picked “27″. Well last night was the last game of the series between the two two teams. It went to 7 games the the team I picked long long ago won and I won the whole pool! ALSO, just for fun I had them calculate the number of goals scored in the last series and guess what number it was? Yes, 27 goals. It kind of freaked the guys out and they took a few steps back. :)
  • Athens 2004 is the location of the Summer Olympic games next year. The Olympic games started more then 2700 years ago in 776 B.C. (2004 + 776)-1 = 2779. the minus 1 is because it we are looking for how long the games have gone on for since 776 to 777 is 1 year and not 2. Well guess what my phone number at my parent’s house where I grew up? 774-2779.
  • At the 2003 C-COR IT Holiday party we had an anonymous gift exchange. Everyone was given 3 cards out of a deck. When I turned over my randomly picked cards I have 2, 7, and a King in that order. The funny thing is obviously the 27 in the correct order but on top of that my sisters and parents are always calling me the King because my mom said I’m her favorite offspring (jokingly).
  • My father’s birthday is 7/29, guess what the square root of 729 is ? 27!

  • One of the most important aspects of Darwin’s intellectual development was the famous Beagle voyage, G a circumnavigation of the globe. On December 27th 1831 he set out on board the Beagle. The voyage allowed Darwin to pursue his interests in geology, botany, anthropology, and biology. He took a small low-power microscope on the voyage, and made many observations.
  • Record-breaking fourth hurricane hits Florida on September 27th, 2004.
  • Hurricanes require a special set of conditions, including ample heat and moisture. For a hurricane to form, there must be a warm layer of water at the top of the sea with a surface temperature greater than 27 °C (80 °F). This is why most level five hurricanes occur over warm tropical oceans. Also, a level 5 hurricane has a barometric pressure of 27.17 or lower.

  • 1 megalithic yard = 2.72 British feet
  • Large triangle on the Moon formed by three circular features (distinguishable from the APP172.jpg Clementine image – is 272 miles on each side. [Mercieca is referring to the large triangular formation photographed by the 1995 DOD (Pentagon) Clementine mission to the Moon, subsequently "leaked" to the Enterprise Mission (see below). The formation seems, in the extensive analysis conducted by Hoagland's team, to consist of three "glass towers," spaced in a precise equilateral triangle (the 272-mile spacing of each side of this great triangle is numerically self-referential to this equilateral, i.e., "tetrahedral," triangle) -- the 272-mile triangle roughly straddling the current "Sinus Medii" central region of the Moon. This is also the same region photographed by the Earth-based Lick Observatory in 1937, presented by Hoagland at Ohio State in 1994, first revealing the dark, smaller "equilateral triangle" in the bottom of the 16-mile diameter crater Ukert. Ukert is the largest crater located at times (due to "lunar librations") directly under the "sub-Earth point"of the near-side of the Moon -- close to 0 degrees latitude and longitude.]
  • The crater Ukert (16 mile triangle) is [precisely!] tangential to one side of the larger 272-mile triangle.
  • If the diameter of the Earth = 1, the diameter of the Moon = 0.272 [another inexplicable, "tetrahedral/ equilateral" numerical relationship -- this time for the entire Moon ...]
  • The Moon is currently 60.27 Earth radii away from us and is moving away imperceptibly. [Actually it is moving away at about 1/8 inch per year.] Exactly 200,000 years ago the Moon was [.27 radii closer to the Earth -- another numerically significant "tetrahedral relationship"] 60 Earth radii away.
  • Over the millennia, all the stars are shifting in relation to Earth, due to a
    phenomenon known as precession. The direction that Earth’s axis is pointing is
    slowly, almost imperceptibly, changing, in much the same way that a spinning
    top leans one way and then another. This precession occurs because Earth
    is not a perfect sphere, but is about twenty-seven miles wider in diameter at
    the equator than between the poles. The bulge in the middle is caused by Earth’s
    rotation. Earth’s slow wobble traces out a circular pattern in the sky, and it
    takes twenty-six thousand years to complete one circle. For this reason,
    Polaris will not always be the “North” Star. In about fifteen thousand years,
    the star Vega will take the place of Polaris in the northern sky. By A.D. 27,990,
    Polaris will return to its present position as the North Star.
  • The biggest snake in the world is the anaconda of South America. The largest anaconda ever was 27 feet (8.45 meters) long and more than 3 feet (1 meter) around with a weight of close to a quarter ton.
  • About 27 tons of dust rains down on the earth each day from space, making a total of almost 10,000 tons each year.
  • The world record for the 100 yard dash is 27.1 miles per hour
  • Earth is nearer the sun in January than it is in June – by almost 5 million km (3 million miles). Earth leans slightly on its axis. It is 23 degrees and 27 minutes off the perpendicular to the plane of orbit. This planetary pose is what causes all the variety of our climate, since it determines how many hours and minutes each hemisphere receives sunlight.

  • Never again in our lifetimes will the Red Planet be so spectacular! This month and next Earth is catching up with Mars, an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history. . The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. . Due to the ways Jupiter’s gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the last 5,000 years but it may be as long as 60,000 years. The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest 75-power magnification, . Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. . Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August Mars will rise in the east at 10 p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. But by the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30 a.m. That’s pretty convenient when it comes to seeing something that no human has seen in recorded history. . So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month. . Share this! No one alive today will ever see this again.

  • The ratification required by at least 36 states — three-fourths of the 48 states then in existence — has to be identical to the amendment passed by Congress. Benson cites federal documents affirming that for state approval to be acceptable, neither words nor punctuation can be changed. And the states may not violate their own state constitutions in ratifying the amendment. Of the 48 states, here’s the story:

    • Eight states (Rhode Island, Utah, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Kentucky, Florida, Virginia and Pennsylvania) did not approve or ratify the amendment.
    • Texas and Louisiana were forbidden by their own state constitutions to empower the federal government to tax.
    • Vermont and Massachusetts rejected the amendment with a recorded vote count, and only later declared it passed without a recorded vote after the amendment was declared ratified by Knox.
    • Tennessee, Ohio, Mississippi, California and Washington violated their state constitutions in their ratification procedures.
    • Minnesota did not send any copy of its resolution to Knox, let alone a signed and sealed one, as required.
    • And Oklahoma, Georgia and Illinois made unacceptable changes in wording. (Some of the above states also made such changes, in addition to their other unacceptable procedures.)

    Take 48 states, deduct these 21, and you have proper ratification by only 27 states — far less than the required 36.

  • Barbaro (April 29, 2003 — January 29, 2007) was an American thoroughbred that decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby. Undefeated going into the race, Barbaro was sent off as the second choice of the betting public, at odds of 6:1, in a full field of 20 horses. Barbaro charged ahead during the last turn and straightaway of the race to win by 7 lengths. This margin of victory at the Kentucky Derby was the largest since 1946, when Triple Crown winner Assault took the Run for the Roses by eight lengths. Barbaro’s win made him only the sixth undefeated horse to win the Kentucky Derby. The manner of his Derby victory led to speculation that Barbaro might be a “superhorse,” the likes of which had not been seen since Affirmed and perhaps even Secretariat, arguably the greatest American thoroughbred of all time. On May 20, 2006, he ran in the Preakness Stakes as a heavy favorite, but he fractured three bones in and around the ankle of his right hind leg shortly after the start of the race. The next morning, Dr. Dean Richardson performed a fusion of the fetlock and pastern joints to stabilize it and make it strong enough for Barbaro to walk on. It was a five hour procedure and was one of the toughest surgeries he had ever performed. Richardson successfully implanted a Synthes stainless steel Locking Compression Plate and 27 screws into the colt’s injured leg to span the comminuted fracture and joints. Barbaro was euthanized on January 29, 2007 around 10:30 AM EST by decision of his owners Roy and Gretchen Jackson, who indicated that they felt that his pain was no longer manageable.

  • The “expert” is probably John Hogue. But I have doubts about his
    interpretations regarding the 27 years third world war or that the next
    antichirist will be the third antichrist. Although Nostradamus says that the
    war of the antichrist will last for 27 years, but that simply may mean “his
    struggle” will last that long – not the actual third world war. Other
    prophecies indicate that the third world war will last for a short period,
    probably anything between 2.5 to 4 years. It is said that after the third
    world war will come the reign of the “Great Monarch” when an unprecedented
    peace will prevail. But after his death Antichrist will appear again (may be
    27 years after WW-III ?) and the “End of the World” will follow.
  • On August 27th, 2001 the Australian government ordered 433 asylum seekers fleeing Saddam Hussein on a boat were sent to Nauru, a small pacific island.

The Australian Navy ensure refugees keep their distance People smugglers had promised them a new life in Australia, in return for thousands of dollars. But instead of a new life, Australia effectively sold them to the near-bankrupt island of Nauru, thousands of miles away into the middle of the Pacific. In return, Australia paid Nauru $30 million. Amnesty International was allowed a one-off visit to Nauru before the island was effectively “shut down”. The 400 people are being held in camps with nothing to do and no visitors are allowed. If wonder how terrorists are “born”, well now you know.
  • In 1965:

    One of history’s greatest engineering failures occurred without warning at 5:27 p.m. on Nov. 9, 1965, when a single electrical relay failed at the Sir Adam Beck Station No. 2 in Ontario, Canada, causing a key transmission line to disconnect. A so-called “cascade failure” quickly ensued, as dozens of major power grids overloaded and failed, ultimately plunging 30 million people in darkness.

    On August 14th, 2003:

    Mayor of NYV, Pataki reluctantly recalled one of the two major blackouts of the last 40 years in the Northeast -the 1965 power failure, which left an 80,000-square-mile stretch of the United States and Canada without electricity for as much as 27 hours. “It wasn’t supposed to happen again,” he said, “and it has happened again. And there have to be some tough questions asked as to why.” 50 million were without power at some point.

    The repeating digits are below:

    Notice that the pattern starts at 27 and once it reaches 36 the numbers reverse and end at 72. This pattern continues every 10 digits using multiples of 3 divided by 11.

    Another interesting thing is that I’ve heard that some have found interesting correlations between 27 and 11. I’ve had people tell me “No, I don’t see 27s often, but I do see 11s.”

  • Mayan calendar:
    60 X 60 X 24 X 364 = 31449600 = add em up = 27. From, Scott

  • There are 29.97 frames of video per second (f/s) in video. There are 60 seconds in a minute (s/m). There are 60 minutes in an hour(m/h).
    2+9+9+7 = 27.
    Now, 29.97 f/s x 60s/m = 1798.2 = 1+7+9+8+2 = 27.
    Now 1798.2 f/m x 60 m/h = 107892 = 1+0+7+8+9+2 = 27.
    Now that stops our measurement of time but lets continue.
    107892 x 60 = 6473520 = add em up = 27.
    6473520 x 60 = 388411200 = add em up = 27.
    Now, multiplying this by 60 again will not work however,
    388411200 / 27 = 14385600 = add em up = 27.
    Now, that we used 27 again lets go back to 60,
    14385600 / 60 = 239760 = add em up = 27.
    239760 / 60 = 3996 = add em up = 27.

    Now lets add all the numbers from the equations we used but do not use what each equation was equal to. Go right down the steps.

    29.97+60+60+60+60+27+60+60 = 416.97 = add em up = 27.

    It seems to me that the number 60 is very closely related to 27. From, Scott

    13.5 x 2 = 27

  • 1 + 9 + 9 + 8 = 27

    The logical next step, then, would be to note that right around 1989 I started noticing 27. 1989 also adds up to 27. 89, 98, the difference between any two numbers opposite is always a power of 9 (figured out that in HS when playing with numbers). 98-89=9. An interesting thing about 9 is that it’s multiples are 1,3,9. Multiply those together and you get 27.

  • Counting from the decimal point in Pi, 27 appears the first time after 27 the digit.
  • The numbers surrounding the first 27 in Pi are 9 and 3. 9×3=27
  • Pi contains a few self-locating strings, but not many. Defining self-locating depends how you count the “position”. If you treat the first digit after the decimal point as digit “1″ (which the pi searcher does), then you get the following numbers which can self-locate themselves in the first 50M digits of pi: 1, 16470, 44899

  • In the earlier discussion regarding Three-Dimensional Reality, It was broken down, or rather built up, into 27 components. This number 27 was found to be the sum of 3 X 9. This new number 36 is the sum of 4 x 9. The difference between these two numbers is 9. This can be seen symbolically as the definition of reality added to the definers of reality in the nine digits. As was shown previously though, one of the 27 has the value of zero. Rather than 27 + 9 equaling 36, it should be 26 + 10. While the zero is not really a number, it does have a definite value and place in the system. For the purpose of this part of the work though, we will try to first analyze more of the values of nine: 9, 18, 27, and 36.
