I have often wondered how this number could be connected to a man. Birth date? Number of letters in the name? mixed into the Social Security number? Phone number?? There are many possibilities.
But what if the number is not 666? What if the number is 600, 60, 6 or 600,606 or some variation? If we could somehow count the letters of an alphabet (cycled) and find corresponding letters, this will come out to something, like an anagram?
What if this is a play on the Unholy trinity when seen as 3 separate numbers?
Or 3 x 6 is 18
Or 6 x 6 = 36 times 6 = 216.
Or 6+6 = 12 x 6 = 72.
Or 600 x 60 = 36000 x 6 = 216000
Maybe its latitudes and longitudes?
This can go in lots of different directions. Scripture says "Let him having reason count the number" so there is some puzzle to this. Care to discuss??
