I like to think of 666 as "perfect imperfection".The number 7 typically signifies completion or perfection, especially of God. The number 6 is one shy of that, which means it signifies imperfection (even though they say that number 6 itself is mathematically a perfect number). More specifically, it refers to the imperfection of man and the sin and weakness he has. Repeated 3 times -- where 3 symbolizes completeness -- it means completely imperfect.
but its really not. I understand what you are saying because Satan is perfect. Therefore this world, which is founded on his perfect evil attitude, is perfect imperfection, but again it's really not.I like to think of 666 as "perfect imperfection".
Haha. I understood that you understood me. Perhaps I should try to word it better.but its really not. I understand what you are saying because Satan is perfect. Therefore this world, which is founded on his perfect evil attitude, is perfect imperfection, but again it's really not.
The phrase 'perfect imperfection' itself implies that imperfection can be perfect, which it simply cannot be so. The imperfection in this world, is the best Satan could do as a perfect creation...and yet, he fell short, thus it is not perfect imperfection. I'm not trying to argue with you, as I truly do understand what you are saying, however I think it is important to recognize true perfection... from a counterfeit, and not give him more credit than he most certainly does not deserve.
It says in the bible "be Quick to listen". I like to think the oxymoron emphasizes. But I will stop it here lol.One of the definitions of imperfect is, complete or absolute, so in that sense yeah, you could say that. But on the face of it, it is an oxymoron.
Actually, he became part of my routine in my bible studies before I got baptized. I used to be obsessed with looking at computer reviews and benchmarks and cardinal rule about benchmarking is making things as equal as possible. Also, I "test" sources to see how accurate they are. Usually they claim quite short timeframes in the span of few years or even months so it's just a matter of waiting.Thanks for posting OP -- I've been following Martin for more than decade, he has a unique insight.
I believe SPY bottomed out at 666 in 2008-9 and DOW dropped 777 that day.
