Number 144 versus 666

More than simple Symbolism

And it puts under compulsion all persons, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they should give these a mark in their right hand or upon their forehead, and that nobody might be able to buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name. Here is where wisdom comes in: Let the one that has intelligence calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number; and its number is six hundred and sixty‐six

(Revelation 13:16-18)

There are two numbers in the Bible which are opposed to each other, not only in their symbolic meaning, but also by their mathematical properties. And I feel that this doesn’t limit only on mathematics, but it goes deeper, into psychology, consciousness, even physics and metaphysics.

When a number has a religious symbolic meaning and it’s mathematical property represents this symbolism too, then this is of greater importance as one would expect from a simple religious meaning. For example the number 6 has a religious meaning which represents imperfection. The number 7 represents perfection or completeness. Six is seven less one, falling short of 7. Three times six means imperfection on all levels, or complete imperfection (gross shortcoming and failure in the eyes of Jehovah).

… for what is in excess of these is from the wicked one …

(Matthew 5:37)

The number six is not only 1 less than 7, but also one more than 5. The number 10 represents a complete earthly organization, composed by men and women, therefore 5 + 5. But the six is one more than 5, which mean someone under the influence of a spirit … “for what is in excess” …

When the Apostle John wrote “calculate the number” of the wild beast, did he just mean that he has calculated the number and the final result is 666? Or did he mean “take the number and see for yourself through mathematical calculations if it is really imperfect“? The intention of his words can be understood if one consider it together in the context of the chapter 7 of Revelation.

And I heard the number of those who were sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel:

Out of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand sealed;

out of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand;

out of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand sealed

(Revelation 7:4)

Chapter 7:4 shows that the number 144000 is calculated by 12 x 12000. From each of the twelve tribes 12000 sons of Israel are sealed.

12 x 12000 = 144000

The complete number then is 144000 and it is not a symbolic number. So a calculation was done with the complete number of who were sealed. If then one calculate the number of the “wild beast” we should at least expect that the result demonstrates a mathematical accurate imperfection, else why should John write the words “calculate” if the meaning of the number is solely understood by it’s religious symbolism?

6 = 7 - 1
6 = 5 + 1

The Calculation Challenge

The point is that when someone challenge you to calculate something, then symbolism alone is not sufficient. The number 144000 represents a total number and completeness. Number 12 is representative for a complete number of heavenly organization. The 12 apostles where choose by Jesus Christ to form the base of his heavenly organization. During the Pentecost 120 disciples where present when the holy spirit was pour out (Acts 2:17). Here we see how the awareness of the truth grows in a ordered way, not chaotically, but in a certain way like life force moves inside a organism. We see here the number 12, then 120 which equals to 12 x 10, then later in Revelation the number 12000 of every tribe of Israel which equals to 12 x 10 x 10 x 10 … and also 144000 which equals to 12 x 12 x 10 x 10 x 10. The number 1000 is well known regarding the 1000 years of Christ’s reign, during this time he will elevate humanity to perfection. Adam and all people before the flood never reached this age of 1000 years. No human kingdom on earth ever reached this age too. So maybe this means that the number of the wild beast, the human number, will never reach the complete number of 144000 ??? Let’s see.

Being smart means thinking things through – trying to find the real answer, not the first answer.

Chapter 13 of Revelation says: “Let the one that has intelligence calculate the number of the wild beast.“. So if “being smart means thinking things through” and not just to jump to an superficial conclusion or the first answer, then we should try to be good scientists, good investigators, taking into account all fields of science which we know and not only just use the simple symbolic meaning of a number, because this is too superficial. But, a word of warning, the Truth is despite it’s deep implications and meaning also very simple. So we need a mind which tries to think deeply, but also a mind which does not loose itself in the deep, because the Bible was written for everyone and the meaning is not occulted in obscure formulas as some may think. For sure the “calculation” will lead us to an result which will not only enhance the symbolic meaning of the number, but also deliver us with an deeper understanding of the number 144000.

The Connection between Heaven and Earth

Because the number 12 represents a heavenly organization and the number 10 a human organization, the number 144000 is the perfect composition of heaven and earth.

12 x 12      = 144
10 x 10 x 10 = 1000
144 x 1000   = 144000

The combination results in a connection between heaven and earth. Indeed the Bible says that a marriage will unite the 144000 with Jesus Christ forever.

Because Satan is jealous of God, he tries to imitate (to mock) God’s way of acting. He tries to create his own organization (woman) and to promote his own liberator (Nimrod) and his own false religion. But whatever he do he fails. There is no way to succeed if one base his reality on illusions.

Thousands year during the Kingdom of Jesus Christ will have 360000 days, not 365000, because the additional 5 days per year are considered “unlucky” by some cultures (for example Mayans). Remember that the earth was repositioned during the great flood at Noah’s days.

Dividing 360000 by 5 (man or woman) we get 72000. Multiplying it again by two (man and woman) we get 144000. The cycle of 1000 years can be completed by the 144000.

360000 / 5 = 72000
72000 x 2  = 144000

Let’s see if the 666 can do this.

12 is for the 144000 the heavenly part, 10 the earthly part. For the 666 the 6 is the earthly part and the 111 is the wicked spirit part … the other way around than for the 144000 (“Magic mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?“). The 111 on the other hand is composed by 100 + 10 + 1.

6 x (100 + 10 + 1) = 666

For the 144000 we have multiplied it’s components with their strong symbolic meaning with itself, 12 x 12 and 10 x 10 x 10.

Now if we multiply 6 x 6 x 6 we get 216. If we multiply this 216 again with 666 we get 143856, a number which is 144 smaller than 144000. A thousandth part missing to perfection, not 1000 but 999. What does this mean? It means that the 666 seems to be a perfect base for a reality, but it is indeed in all it’s aspects imperfect. This is the mathematical proof of the number of the beast, it’s mathematical accurate imperfection.

6 x 6 x 6 = 216
216 x 666 = 143856
144000 - 143856 = 144
143856 / 144    = 999

But we are not finished yet.


There is so much more to tell about this number. It is a very illusionary number. It’s components 100, 10 and 1 can also be multiplied with each other, resulting in 100 x 10 x 1 = 1000.

100 x 10 x 1 = 1000

Aha, the 666 seems to simulate the perfect 1000 years cycle, pretending to embed the complete cycle, but we know that it will never reach this goal.

Again, let’s consider only the cycle aspect of both numbers, 144 and 666.

King Solomon wrote about the never ending cycles of nature and in contrast the short life span of humans, which is not better than that of animals. If we take the function sine and calculate the sine of 666 (sin of 666, but with degrees not radians) the result is exactly the half of the irrational number phi.

sind(666) = -0,80901699437494742410229341718282

Same can be done with the 144, but not with sine, but with cosine.

cosd(144) = -0,80901699437494742410229341718282

sind(666) = cosd(144)

Both numbers seems to be a perfect base for a never ending reality, but we know that the 666 is missing the thousandth part! Satan is mocking, even believes his own lies.

sind(666) - cosd(144) = 0

Whatever he does, it ends in imperfection and finally in nothingness.


Imperfect for all eternity:

144000 / 216 = 666,666666666666...
144000 / 666 = 216,216216216216...

Still missing a thousandth:

666 x 6   = 3996   = 4000   - 4   = 999 x 4
666 x 36  = 23976  = 24000  - 24  = 999 x 24
666 x 216 = 143856 = 144000 - 144 = 999 x 144

Not able to reach thousand:

10 x 10 x 10 = 1000
10 x 10      = 100

No human has reached the life span of 1000 years, because as imperfect humans we always miss just one part.
