64..... everything about 64.
As a product of 8 x 8, it is the expression of a realized totality and perfect.
According to R. Allendy, this number represents the "static realization - even number - of the cosmic unit - 6 + 4 = 10 - in the blooming of the beatitude. It is the final liberation which allows to the being to realize its full individuality after its cycle 4, in the links of the cosmic Karma, 60". It would represent also the natural forces acting in union with the providential determinations of the Cosmos.
Being the cube of 4, the number 64 represents the physical world of the four elements to the third power, in the plenitude of its expansion.
According to Claude of Saint-Martin, this number represents the "complement of the octagonal circle where the powerful number, after having covered all the depths of area and of the existence of the beings, restore the unit in its simple number, there where it was divided, and the action where reigned the nothingness and the death".
Symbol of the paramount chaos.

The mathematician W. R. Ball reports the following legend: In a temple of Benares, there is a dome under which a plate of bronze marks the center of the world. On this plate, there are three vertical stems of one cubit height. During the creation of the world, God placed on one of the stems 64 discs of gold of different sizes, the largest at the basis, the others going decreasing. In top, the smallest disc. This accumulation is the tower of Brahma. Night and day, without stop, the priests relay to transfer the discs from a stem to another. Only one disc must be take at once and it is forbidden to place a disc on another of lower diameter. When the 64 discs will be transferred from the tower of Braham to an other stem, the temple and the Universe will crumble. This will be the end of the world.

I know a guy who played eve online during a hurricane on a generator in a house on a Texas barrier island. Be a man and post from your roof in the middle of the storm!
but if you do hear a tornado warning, head for the basement.
Why the hell would anyone do that?

Define irony, my town is about to have a tornado :biggrin.gif:
When you live in tornado alley, this isn't the only time.
Also, spaceghost is right. Irony means something that's unexpected, not expected.

It is legal for parents to make choices for teenagers, as long as they are considered minors; which in America is generally 18 years old. Minors legally have very few rights. A great example can be found in public schools. Parents sign a form (without which the child cannot attend school) that allows the school to conduct random searches of the child's possessions. No warrant needed.
Teenagers are generally free to make their own choices. Sure, their parents are in charge around the home, but outside of that. I mean, it's not like parents can shackle their teenage son/daughter in a cellar.
May 28, 2011Catmando posted a message on I've been listening to Creationist radio for the past hourMostly it's been them discussing the news with a strong Republican bias, but now they're on to "disproving" evolution. It's hilarious. In a matter of under 3 minutes, I've noticed almost a dozen mistakes on their part, and while writing this sentence, two more. They're even repeating them for emphasis!Posted in: General Off Topic
Ever listened to "Answers in Genesis"? It's like this all the time! I almost can't believe these people believe it themselves.
Anyway, I added a poll. Please, do share your experiences. :wink.gif:

I went to my classmates funeral today. ****ing sad as hell, as it was a preventable car crash. Good news is, the other guy that was in the car with him survived, and somehow has no severe injuries even after going flying through the windshield at 160 kilometers a hour.
I'm sorry for your loss.
May 23, 2011pete1061 posted a message on How do you feel about the bombings of Hiroshima (And Nagasaki)?Japan was pretty much ready to surrender before the bombs we're dropped.Posted in: General Off Topic
Also by that time, tensions we're starting to grow between the US and USSR.
The bombs we're actually intended as a message to the rest of the world (mainly the USSR) that the US had nukes and we're insane enough to use them.
Politics is a dirty business.
