The Number of the Beast

"He's a Mad Scientist and I'm his Beautiful Daughter."
— Deety in Heinlein's The Number of the Beast.

For more on this theme, see my Journal Note of December 21, 2001. See also the film classic "Forbidden Planet," and the play "The Tempest," by William Shakespeare, on which it is based.

Philosophers ponder the idea of identity: what it is to give something a name on Monday and have it respond to that name on Friday….
— Bernard Holland, The New York Times of Monday, May 20, 1996

The New York midday lottery number for Monday, August 26, 2002, was 666, the biblical "number of the beast."

For the beast's Friday response to the calling of its number by New York State on Monday, see
