What is the 11 trying to tell us?
One should draw their own conclusions as to the significance of these numbers and what they might mean within the context of these seemingly random historical and modern events. Often, we see what we want to see and when we are looking for something we tend to find it. But our beliefs and perceptions do play a significant role in the reality that we experience every day in our own lives, and numbers can guide us in mysterious ways allowing us to 'connect the dots' within the details in order to then zoom out and contemplate the larger picture.

- 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321 (Forms a Pyramid)
- Pi can be expressed by an improper fraction; 22/7 (22 (2+2+7 = 11)
- 11 is a Prime number. A number is called prime if its only factors are one and itself.
- 11 factorial (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11) = 66.
- Because it has a reciprocal of unique period length among primes, 11 is the second unique prime. 11 goes into 99 exactly 9 times, so vulgar fractions with 11 in the denominator have two digit repeating sequences in their decimal expansions. Multiples of eleven by one-digit numbers all have matching double digits: 00 (=0), 11, 22, 33, 44

- The binary numeral system, or base-2 number system represents numeric values by using two symbols: 0 and 1. The binary system is used internally by almost all modern computers. The modern binary number system was studied by Gottfried Leibniz in 1679. Leibniz's system uses 0 and 1, like the modern binary numeral system. As a Sinophile, Leibniz was aware of the I Ching and noted with fascination how its hexagrams correspond to the binary numbers from 0 to 111111, and concluded that this mapping was evidence of major Chinese accomplishments in the sort of philosophical mathematics he admired.
For most practical purposes in modern society, we use the decimal number system which has ten unique digits, 0 through 9. All other numbers are then formed by combining these ten digits. Computers are based on the binary numbering system, which consists of just two unique numbers, 0 and 1. All operations that are possible in the decimal system (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) are equally possible in the binary system. We use the decimal system in everyday life because it seems more natural (we have ten fingers and ten toes). For the computer, the binary system is more natural because of its electrical nature (charged versus uncharged).

- This is a fun little math trick that applied to the year 2011, but you can still try it now. Add the last two digits of the year that you were born to how old you turned 2011.
