Palindromes
« on: March 10, 2016, 10:24:07 PM »
Hello all,

Recently I've been contemplating palindromes (a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backwards as forwards, e.g. madam or nurses run). It occurred to me that all the doubles we see are palindromes 11:11, 111, 222, 333, 444.... etc.
This allowed for me to look further into the associations of palindromes and paranormal circumstances.

First item I happened upon was the utilization of the palindrome as a tool to trap a spirit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expiration_Date_%28novel%29

Second item is the use and creation of the SATOR square. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sator_Square

Third item is the cutting of DNA by using palindromic sequence enzymes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palindromic_sequence

Fourth item is the use of palindromes as protection amulets. http://news.discovery.com/history/archaeology/ancient-amulet-discovered-with-palindrome-inscription-150105.htm

What are everyone's thoughts? Gene?

It's very interesting, I'll have to look a little further into this

Is that first link supposed to go to a book?

I wasn't able to edit the post;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expiration_Date_(novel)

I believe the idea is, the sequence of letters seemingly has significance to anything that can comprehend language. In observation of the sequence, the attention of the observer is captured as it/he/she attempts to understand the palindrome. The modality seems to be exactly that, to capture the attention and instigate a search for meaning. As more attention is given to the palindrome the basis for meaning is established by the fruitfulness of the search being countered by the illusion of meaning. Sort of an infinite regression (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_regress). 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiotics

As human beings, we inherently look for meaning through perception of symbols. As such we are able to quickly discern between significance of meaning and actuality.

Why do human beings do this? It all comes down to how we draw meaning from the environment around us. If we were orbiting the Earth in the ISS, our perception of the surface from our visual perception (at least during day time) would amount to a conclusion where the presence of life on the planet below would be terribly difficult to spot. This is due to our distance from the humans on the surface. A similar parallel is found with us and bacteria. Although we cannot necessarily see a Streptococci organism, they still exist everywhere.

This perception of human scale is an understanding inherent to our brain. The phenomena is known as scale invariance.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scale_invariance 

How does that tie into the pallindromes? I believe that whichever entity can comprehend reality can only do so by attaching themselves to a point in scale invariance so as to create a symbol or landmark for our human scale to perceive reality at our perception scale (sort of like an anchor point). In doing so, it can make itself understand this reality.

The palindromic traps I've mentioned earlier perhaps are a means to confound such attempts at perceptive understanding (see the infinite regress mentioned earlier).

Why are we seeing 11:11? Are we entities albeit caught in some other kind of palindromic trap - looking for meaning of a seemingly infinite search?
