I have had cause to do some research on the number 64. I found out that it is an amazing number. Are you aware that 64 is a superperfect number? Yep, first of all it is the smallest number with seven divisors! It is the lowest positive power of two that is adjacent to neither a Mersenne prime nor a Fermat prime! It has even more amazing aspects, but the foregoing should be enough to get you hepped up on 64. Heck it was even used by the Beatles in their song, “When I’m Sixty-Four”. Of course, when they wrote that, they thought that sixty-four was really, really ancient. Here in The Villages, we know that it is the epicenter of youth.
Apparently, sixty-four is also an Angel number. What that means in some cases is that everyone is to remain optimistic and positive about all your financial and other needs as they are being taken care of by the angels. I don’t know if this applies only when you are sixty-four or not as my knowledge of angel numbers is pretty limited. Just to be certain if it applies all the time, remember that negative energies related to stress and anxiety can repel the optimistic and positive energies. Thus, you should not let the virus, riots or whatever we face now get you down. Remember the positive side and keep on truckin’.
Some would say that life is like a chess board which has sixty-four squares. Half of them are dark and the other half are light. In other words, it is a battle of good versus evil. It is probably why some people who play chess always want the white – that and the fact that if you have white, you get to go first. Some philosophers relate chess and its sixty-four squares to the control of humanity – in other words when black wins. That is not a good thought, but on the other hand, it might be good if we could get some politicians to play chess rather than run for office. They could get their control impulses out of the way that way. However, since they always want to win, they would demand to be able to play white. If they were playing another politician, things could get ugly. Life is never simple!
Concerning the above, the same board is used for checkers which might be easier for many politicians. However, let us ignore the darker side of life, as I suspect that some may be wondering why I was researching sixty-four in the first place. I will now attempt to elucidate, without too many words. It seems that The Blonde in the house and I had a recent event which involved that number. It involved some celebration and a dinner out with some friends. (Isn’t it nice that you can now find an open restaurant, obtain a table and not have a bunch of people speaking loudly at the next table while you are trying to speak loudly.)
The Blonde and I celebrated at home by exchanging gifts. I bought her the finest orchid plant that could be found (so said the sales lady), and her favorite candy. That by the way is chocolate covered marshmallows on a stick. So, what did she give me? Why nothing else but a three-pronged plug! OK, she did present me with a couple of nice shirts, but the kingpin was the three-pronged plug. I thanked her most profusely while viewing it carefully. She mentioned that in case I hadn’t noticed that it was a Smart plug.
Geez, just what I need a plug that is smarter than me!
