# Properties of the number 88

## Symbolism

• The number eight being the symbol of the infinity, 88 symbolizes the double directions of the infinity of the universe, that is to say the infinitely small and the infinitely large.

• The number 88 is the numbered representation of the cross swastika - three times cranked. Symbolically, this cross represents the eternity or the cosmic Christ, and it is allotted to the number 16. And, by theosophical reduction, 8 + 8 gives 16.

## General

• It is the period of revolution, in number of days, of the Mercury planet around the Sun.

• Among the abbreviations used in telegraphy and in telephony, and which are employed universally, we find the number 88 meaning "love and kisses".

## Gematria

• By using as the correspondence table A=26, B=25, ..., Z=1, we find that, in French, "Dieu Un" (God One) gives 88.

## Occurrence

• The cardinal number 7 is used 88 times in the NT.

• The sum of the occurrences of all the numbers of the New Testament multiple of 5 and written under their cardinal form gives 88. And the sum of the occurrences of all numbers multiple of 13, which are in the Bible of Jerusalem or in the NRSV, gives also 88.

Could it be possible that we have been lied to, and that what we think of as god, is really the devil?

And how is it hardly anybody notices the mass program of mind control the people in the west seem to be under?

I always see the number 88. Not long ago, whenever I'd see an old penny on the ground, I'd picked it up and it was always a 1988 year, like 7 times in a row. It freaked me out so much that I don't pick up pennies anymore. I also see the number 88 everywhere else! But I'm a Christian and I don't believe in numerology but I also know this cannot just be a coincidence.

I don't see this number everyday but 88 has appeared in the most peculiar places in my life. Some of the most memorable include my first job at a certain chain restaurant. It happened to be store #88 by its ID number. Another time was before an exam about 2 months ago. My exam ID, next to my name, was "88". (Also, my brother was born in 1988)

If you have knowledge in numerology or can even help me grasp an understanding of what lead me to this comment, to leave this reply, I would greatly enjoy talking with you.

Im sure a lot of you are realizing the numbers you are seeing are appearing too frequently to just be coincidence. I am soon going to start a blog about the information I have found. I too have seen number sequences starting with 11:11 and then more number sequences appeared as I acknowledged it. We are all apart of something much greater than we know and this is our wake up call. I am here to help and talk with anyone who wants to know.

by 88 the Alien - 2/12/11 6:28 AM
It brings me joy and peace to see more beings recognizing the truth of numbers! Numbers are everything and everything is numbers. this understanding will bring mankind closer to understanding the truth behind there origins and destinations. Through 88, you can find the link between here and there. In other words, life and death or the Heavens and Earth(s). This will bring you to the door that leads to discovering what truly is in space, the Universe. 88 is what links religion to science. 88 is the Rosetta Stone that allows you to translate the bible to what has and is happening in the heavens/space! Welcome to the other side. I AM your tour guide, 88 the Alien a.k.a. G2 : Just Beautiful...

### Birthday and 88

by BG - 12/13/13 3:23 PM
My birthday is 12/08/83. My SSN has two eights in it. I fell a weird connection to the number eight. Always have. Lately I have turned my life around and really found my faith again. I feel closer to the Lord than ever have. And lately 22's have been showing up everywhere! Makes me feel a little crazy at times to be quite honest. Anyone got anything on this?

You may find my birth date of 11/22/88 of interest. Aside from this, repeatedly seeing the same numbers and/or signs has to do with synchronicity (most usually a good thing).

### Closed Eye Impulsive Thing

by Jamil Johns - 4/12/13 2:14 AM
This is to Logan m. hatch..If you're serious, reach out to me. This strange string of coincidences, could they be described as if you or someone already went ahead of you to make a way? To make arrangements? Have you connected your molecular energy to vibrations and itching? I ask because you comment, if not sarcasm, speaks of enlightenment or awareness. The eye twitching or what could be confused as lazy eye is a trait for a certain DNA type. Through Buddhism, Christianity and Islam I was able to make the connection. Answers to why we have photographic memories,computer programming abilities,high creative energy,high production value,everything about us is a contradiction...so much more, but you get the point.
Not knowing what any of this means is where I was at in 2008 at 27. Then I met my Master, Cau Chin. Being an 88 means you have a strong destructive force and creative force present at once. Like a tidal wave or tsunami, what caused the big bang and the wave that came after. One could say I was... more...

### Comment on all the comments on relating 88 to violence and the first murder Cain and Able

by Mark UK June 2011 - 6/30/11 2:43 AM
When looking at any numerology and metaphysical stuff you often find what you look for, as we are co-creators 0f our own realities and we have a certain amount of freewill so we can CHOOSE how we see the meaning of the numbers, the numbers themselves are just numbers just as rain is rain and energy is energy, however our personality ego perspective of a number depends upon our "programming" (glass half empty, glass half full). Rain is rain there is no such thing as bad weather, if you plant potatoes you want rain if you want a barbecue and it rains you say the weather is bad.
Extreme weather is viewed as extreme because we insist on going about our normal daily business against the flow of nature when really we should be out of there or stay away or in doors, and when houses and cars are damaged we are distressed because of the ego personality attachment to material objects and money and to measure our success or how happy we persuade ourselves we are. Symbolism of 88 includes a reminder of duality (we live... more...

great minds think alike ....the connections between incidents are like a trail of bread crumbs or carrots ...certain names letters and numbers literally seem to travel across time ....for those who can't sleep at night worried about the world and its problems and what humans do to one another....i'm not a fan of the rock gospel show jesus christ superstar as it portrays mary magdalene as a prostitute and she certainly wasn't....but there is a song in there called " everythings alright " some of the lyrics are " we want you to sleep well tonight let the world turn without you tonight" just chill and relax you are not alone, humanity is having growing pains and there are other enlightened humans on the case....there are some TOP people in in all the right places. stop watching the news , don't buy newspapers . you will be in a far better mental state to help fix your own little part of the world after a good nights sleep and in a less worried state ....go and watch stargate atlantis or star trek or dr WHO or PAUL something..........THINK COSMICALLY WORK LOCALLY ........martin has left the building ...AND I HAVE A MESSAGE OFF GOD FOR YOU..........SHE SAYS TO TELL YOU " ~~~ REMEMBER YOUR DIVINITY~~~"

### The number 88

by Jimmy88 - 8/07/10 3:39 AM
I also see, think, have yet to dream (may tonight ;) about 88. I do not know what this "symbol" is suppose to mean to me, to any of us...but no doubt, it means something important. Urgent. I see this number the strangest of times. While driving (of course of plates) but more "symbolic" or what makes me feel like there is some message behind me seeing this when I happen to glance at the odomter (miles traveled in your car gauge) and there is an 88 it in. Now, how often do YOU look at your odometer? What makes you look at it? Your answers you probably had to put a bit of thought behind. I hardly every look at the odometer, and usually when I "feel" like I should compare it to the sticker on my windshield from the oil place reminding me to change it. In short, the past 4, maybe 5 times I have looked at my odometer, the numbers 88 are in it. Most likely, and somewhat creepy, is that when I look at the speedometer, quite often of course, my subconcious mind is of course seeing the odometer as they are in the same... more...

### "Conflict"

by Der Mann - 11/30/10 11:08 AM
Quote: "Well ... you're really explaining the 8 ... not the 88 ... 8 = Salvation & New Beginning, 88 = Violence, 888 = Jesus"
...Quite nice. That fits well, with my experience and theory (both limited), and also with my "automatic feeling" (which is, I daresay, trenchant). I'd just modify "Violence" to the more general "conflict." All three numbers (8, 88, 888) are about god in action; in between, as in 88, there's bound to be conflict/strife/violence. Cheers!
