10,000 Days and coincidental (or not?) numbers

Some interesting things I noticed with numbers in 10,000 Days, probably not really interesting for some but anyway…

I don’t think any of this has been posted before but if it has feel free to flame me 

First of all there is the number 11 which as most of you know appears unusually often in the track times and is also the number of tracks on the album, also the song Jimmy refers to when Maynard was 11(?).

Ok, here we go.

Viginti Tres length is 5:02, which is 302 seconds, divide 302 by 11 and you get 27.45, which is almost exactly the number of years that would make up 10,000 days also (as most of you know again) the number of years since Judith Marie was paralysed (anyone been able to find the exact date?).

Also Judith passed away on 18 June 2003, the number of days from that date to the release date of 10,000 days (going with the Aussie one) is 1046. Turn that into seconds and you get 17 minutes and 26 seconds, almost the exact track length for Wings/10,000 Days.

I’d try and find more but I’m about to head out on a pub crawl and hopefully check some music stores around town along the way to see if anyone is selling 10,000 Days early.

Anyone else notice anything as well?

Good observation, but I cant say I "noticed it" while listening to the cd :)

Good work. Haven't noticed anything else, but it sure is interesting.

11 also relates to Aleister Crowley, he was into Numerology and a fan of the number 11.

Still pretty damn close though and if you took into account the silence before and after the track it might be more accurate, I'm too hungover to look at it again at the moment.

Assuming the time it took you to research all of this, I am totally shocked that you even found the time to go to a pub crawl.

Re: 10,000 Days and coincidental (or not?) numbers

My god... get a life; tool is deep but they dont go dividing numbers of tracks adding a few numbers here and there to ALMOST come up with something.

I'm pretty sure its people like you that maynard was making fun of in one of his interviews.

Re: 10,000 Days and coincidental (or not?) numbers

I'm not convinced. Toying with numbers until they match up in some way isn't that difficult to do, if you go looking for it. I don't believe it to have been intentional. Think about it - do you really consider tracklengths being divisible by a "significant" number to add to the artistic merit of a song?

Re: 10,000 Days and coincidental (or not?) numbers

People who say that "almost" is good enough. its like as bad as tool intending exactly what this thread implies, but messing up on the math...they arent going to do anything like this unless it was flawless. or they thew this in there on purpose just so you idiots could feel that your on to something. Why dont you guys do something that matters and cure world hunger... *sound of your footsteps off to the grocery store*

You guys seeing all these coincidences are just like those mexican housewives that claim to recognize the face of Jesus on their tortillas.
