Why are you looking for “41”?

20 Nov

Ok, let me explain this question. I’m a curious cat, by nature. That said, recently, I discovered that since I began blogging, people come searching for ’41’… Is that just a number? An age? [coincidently it’s my current age, but I really don’t think people would be interested in that! Also, be kind: one should never ask/try to guess a lady’s age… especially when it’s past 35! :o] Is there any cabalistic meaning for the number? Since I had no idea, I went out on searching about the intriguing number, in order to find some sort of explanation why, almost 200 people/visitors would be looking for that!

What did I found? Nothing conclusive… it’s an odd, prime number, with no real numerological, biblical or historical meaning… What a disappointment!

So, again, I come back to the question: “why would people be interested in this number?” After exhausting the ‘fancy searching tools/engines’, I resumed to the old-fashioned Wikipedia, the ‘mother of all lost cyber-information‘, for some non-scientific, unlikely reliable shed of light on this problem.

[By now many are probably thinking that I’ve got a lot of free time in my life, pretty much doing nothing, and with tons of ‘unassigned’ minutes to spare… definitely, not the case. I’m also a serious procrastinator, and, sometimes I allow my endless curiosity prevent me from carrying on with real choresgood explanation for escaping from my real duties, right? o]

Anyway, getting back to Wikipedia’s cyber explanation, get this:

“41 (forty-one) is the natural number following 40 and preceding 42, as well as two numbers preceding 43.”

Pretty fantastic, right? Maybe that’s why people have been searching throughout this blog: seeking the number that sits between 40 & 42, which, by the way, are much fancier, even numbers, with several numerological attributions! Got my answer at last, I suppose! 😮 Of course, if one [with time to spare] is heading to check the number on that site, will find references ranging from religion to TV, from big screen movies to politics, and obviously, some math & science references – but again, nothing that could make almost 200 people come blog-hopping over here… 😮

But now, that I’ve got some attention to this ‘matter’, I had to, obviously, tag this post with “41” – at the end, it was the original reason people begin coming over… Oh, the intricate ways the human mind works… one can only wonder! Well… Got you reading, right? 

Thanks for reading! 😮

      So it makes two of us! [or better saying, many of us… I’m sure we’re not alone between the even and important 40 & 42…] 😮 thanks for stopping by and sharing impressions from your/our important year! Very significant!

        I actually have a friend who is a numerologist. She says that those of us who are 41 are in a cycle of enlightenment. I think it’s the 8th cycle. Don’t quote me on that. But if you’re interested, I can ask her…

          No worries… no quoting… I’m just curious about it, as I said… but I definitely like the idea of ‘enlightenment’… don’t we all feel more mature, more together, these days…? I hope we do! 😮 Thanks for bringing some more info! Always appreciated! 😮

    Very strange indeed. Maybe one of your “41” searchers will comment here and reveal the true mystery!

      Strange, right? Could you imagine, getting one of the many ‘curious cats’ out there??? 😮 Thanks for stopping by… Staying put, waiting for the answer, as you suggested! 😮

    But it’s obvious. It’s the number before 42, the answer to life, the universe and everything! People who get to 41 are almost there! Thanks for all the fish.

      Barbara, loved your answer… so, luckily, I’m on the right track… to find my answer to life, when I hit 42… Thanks for your explanation! 😮

        I wouldn’t hit 42 if I were you. It might get mad. 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything. It must be treated with respect.

          November 21, 2012 at 12:30 am

          Will do, Barbara! I guess I better rephrase it, and say, ‘once I approach the age of 42’… more respectful… several months to go, still… 😮

    Numerology is so huge out here that people’s lives literally revolve around it. Auspicious times cover everything in Buddhism and Hinduism….their lives from the cradle to the grave are dictated to by numbers. Interesting as always ma’am. As for the procrastination….I think we’re all guilty on that one.

      Procrastination… we’re definitely guilty… blogging has turned into my all-time all-around excuse… so lame… 😮 Thanks for stopping by!
