The Lottery

New York
Jan. 10, 2004

Midday:  720

Evening: 510

Pennsylvania
Jan. 10, 2004

Midday:  616

Evening: 201

What these numbers mean to me:

720: See the recent entries

Music for Dunne’s Wake,

720 in the Book, and

Report to the Joint Mathematics Meetings.

616 and 201:

The dates, 6/16 and 2/01,
of Bloomsday and St. Bridget’s Day.

510:  A more difficult association…

Perhaps “Love at the Five and Dime”
(8/3/03 and 1/4/04).

Perhaps Fred Astaire’s birthday, 5/10.

More interesting…

A search for relevant material in my own archives, using the phrase “may 10” cullinane journal, leads to the very interesting weblog Heckler & Coch, which contains the following brief entries (from May 19, 2003):

May you live in interesting times
While widely reported as being an ancient Chinese curse, this phrase is likely to be of recent and western origin.

Geometry of the I Ching
The Cullinane sequence of the 64 hexagrams”

“… there are many associations of ideas which do not correspond to any actual connection of cause and effect in the world of phenomena….”

— John Fiske, “The Primeval Ghost-World,” quoted in the Heckler & Coch weblog

“The association is the idea”

— Ian Lee on the communion of saints and the association of ideas (in The Third Word War, 1978)
