Meaningful Coincidence 3
It was the morning of 12th June 2001. For the previous six months I had
been trying to find out as much as possible about Morgan Robertson. I had had particular
difficulty in obtaining an obscure book by John Vess entitled The Titan and
the Titanic. I obtained a copy only through the University of
Auckland and an international inter-library loan.
I was notified that the book had arrived on 11th June. The same night I read about a
University Weekend Course on Internet Design to be held on the coming weekend. I drove
into Auckland to collect the book from the university.
One of the main elements of my research is the recurrence of key numbers at significant
moments and the events of that morning were to provide a good example.
The New Zealand car registration number system changed a month or so earlier. In
the past, the plates had had two letters followed by four numbers, e.g. TC3692.
After 40 years, the number sequence had finally reached ZZ. So, the new series
began AAA123, etc. I had commented to my wife, Jenny, that it would be interesting to see
which one would be my first significant three-figure number.
When I drove to the University to collect the book called The Titan and
the Titanic on 12th June 2001, I was looking for somewhere to park. It is
always hard to park at the university. I caught sight of a space. Then , as I,
pulled up alongside the car to reverse into the space, I had to look twice to make sure
that I was not imagining it. There, just in front of the space, was AAE557.
The first paper I ever wrote about coincidence in 1990 was entitled 557 -
Beyond Space and Time. It described the prophetic
coincidence of the 557 and the Lockerbie plane crash.
I had been unsure whether to enrol on a web design course due to start three days
later. This coincidence confirmed for me that I should do so.
Ever since early 1989, I had been fairly sure that my experiences over the Lockerbie
plane crash and Morgan Robertson writing the story of the Titanic in 1898 had been
parallel experiences. Coming to collect a very scarce book on the subject which the
university had obtained on interloan from an American university reinforced my
conclusions in this respect too.
I was at the time working on Chapter 6 of The Enigma Variations
which examines in detail Morgan Robertsons novel about the Titan and the
wreck of the Titanic. A final coincidence - This internet site was to be put up on our Internet Service
Provider - which just happened to be called titan.co.nz.
When we bought our computer, we had a choice of free connection to one of two ISPs -
Telecom New Zealand's 'xtra' or a small local company by the name of Titan . I
prefer to deal with smaller companies so I chose Titan. Frank Wigg at Titan provided an
excellent service between December 1998 and August 2001 when Titan was taken over by
Maxnet. I did not like the changes and then Jenny discovered another ISP by
the name of Inspire. It seemed an appropriate name for our ISP
We had bought our computer in November 1998 from Digicom Computers. It was only some
time later that their offices in Newmarket, Auckland overlook Alma Street. It was
not until later in 1999 that I discovered that the Newmarket Spiritualist Church had
originally been located at 9, Alma Street before moving to its present
location round the corner in Carlton Gore Road. Princess Diana died in the Alma
Tunnel. Her death is another example where our coincidences precisely predicted
her death two weeks before it occurred. What is more Carlton Gore Spiritualist
Church had figured prominently in the events surrounding my two series of university
lectures in 1999
The interconnections of coincidence, prophecy and destiny are intricate, complex and
extremely fascinating. There is certainly more to the real world than meets the eye of the
