Often times when I look at the clock, whether on purpose or at random--the time reads 11:11. It is a strange phenomena, one that has reoccurred steadily for several years of my life. But what is intriguing to me is that it is a visual image of simultaneity. Why these numbers are significant is an honest mystery, could it simply be due to my remembrance of the sequence of numbers versus other times? Or is there a dimension of it that is spiritual and symbolic?

No matter what the possibility is, I started keeping an archive of what I'm doing during the chance encounters with this particular time because of my project with simultaneity. I share them here with you now and I'm curious to know if any of you have experienced these moments and would maybe want to join me in archiving when and what you are doing during the 60 seconds (x2) 11:11 exists in reality.

Friday, September 18: Unplugging my cell phone from its charger
Sunday, September 20: I finished watching Vicky, Christina Barcelona (11:11 p.m.)
Tuesday, September 22: Turning on the computer to write a friend an email
Thursday, September 24: Having coffee with a friend and I looked at my phone

Saturday, September 26: Getting a ride home from a relative after a party, the clock glowing in the dashboard reads 11:11 (p.m.)
Friday, October 02, 2009: Making the bed

(These were all random encounters with seeing 11:11)

  1. very very interesting, Anne!
    I'd never had anything like that and definitely see a sign in it!

    BUT, why don't you try to record what you were thinking of at those moments, rather then doing?
    I think it can lead you to a clue.

    Good luck!
