"Author Jones (Supervolcano, 2013: The End of Days or a New Beginning?) and paranormal researcher Flaxman address the 'cosmic significance' of specific codes, patterns and numbers-in particular recurring numbers like the 'time prompt' 11:11-that call attention to a 'separate level of awareness, consciousness, or reality.' Jones and Flaxman comb facts and statistics for enticing examples; a long list attached to 9/11 includes the facts that the first plane to strike the towers was Flight 11; New York is the 11 th state; and Bin Laden's birthplace, Saudi Arabia, has 11 letters. They also look at 'magical' numbers and curiosities in math, science and religion. (Pi, Apery's Constant, the Hebrew Kaballah, etc.) Jones and Flaxman are rational investigators with a game attitude and a willingness to believe; to be fair, they also look to human psychology (the tendency toward pattern-seeking) and 'laws' (like the Law of Truly Large Numbers) that indicate 'each of us should be experiencing some strange, coincidental events... even potentially miraculous, every single day.' Whether readers will come to believe that numbers are 'as paranormal as ghosts or UFOs' will largely depend on their attitude toward those two subjects; nevertheless, the authors' case makes an entertaining numerical romp."

Is it happening to you? You wake up at night, look at the clock, and notice that it is 11: 11 p.m. This happens again the next night, and the next. You think it is a coincidence, but what if you were to discover that it was happening to others???possibly millions of others???all over the world? And that it meant something...something important? The reports of people noticing strange and repeated associations with the number 11 are on the rise, prompting theories connecting this phenomenon with the coming Mayan calendar end date of 12/21/2012. But it's not just the number 11 that is showing up in people's lives, it is often accompanied by unusual events or profound insights. Mysterious numbers and strange sequences appear throughout the history of human experience. What do they mean? What secrets do they keep? Are these wake-up calls to a higher state of consciousness, triggers of paranormal experiences, or the activation of what some scientists refer to as junk DNA?
