When I published my post about the Cycle of Life a few days ago, I noticed that the date was May 15th, 2015 on the clock on my computer. I thought to myself that that was an interesting date to be publishing such a post, seeing as how I discussed the significance of numbers and the mathematical principles that underlie our universe in that post.

The date 5-15-2015 eventually adds up to 1 in numerology (5+1+5+2+0+1+5=19 and 1+9=10 and 1+0=1). And like I discussed in my post, mathematically the number 1 is the beginning and the end of the cycle of life in our physical 3D reality (see the explanation of the VBM diagram there). So it’s an interesting coincidence that I posted an article about the Cycle of Life on a date that, not only looks interesting, but also eventually adds up to the number where the cycle of life begins and ends!

But even more interesting is that the following day, my dad called me up at night telling me he was reading my post, and asked if I knew about the number 19 and the Quran. He explained that the number 19 is a special number in the Quran (Quran code), and that it is encoded in various ways throughout the book, including the number of times the name of god is mentioned. From Wikipedia:

In 1968, Egyptian biochemist Rashad Khalifa claimed he had discovered an intricate mathematical pattern when he placed the original Arabic text of the Quran into a computer. The intricate pattern was found to be divisible by a common denominator of the number 19, hence “code-19” is sometimes used to popularly describe Khalifa’s work or the community of Qur’an alone Muslims who go by the name of the Submitters.

The foundation of the code is the Quran’s first verse, “In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful” (بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم ) known as Bismillah ArRahman ArRahim, which consists of 19 Arabic letters. Its constituent words occur in the Quran consistently in multiples of 19.

The Quran’s 19 code, however, is not limited to the first verse only. Historically, the first chapter ever revealed to Muhammed was chapter 96, The Embryo. This chapter contains 19 verses. The first portion revealed consisted of what is now the first 5 verses. These include 19 words which comprise 76 letters (19×4). The whole chapter contains 304 letters, or 19×16.

Notice how code-19 is connected to the first verse in the Quran, and the first chapter revealed to the prophet Muhammed. As explained above, the number 19 eventually adds up to the number 1, which stands for the beginning and the end of the Cycle of Life — just like god being “the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end” (Revelation 1:8) in the bible.

I didn’t know about code-19 before my dad mentioned it to me on the phone, so I told him so. And during our conversation on the phone, I had actually forgotten about the publishing date of my post. It wasn’t until some time after the phone call, that I suddenly remembered that the date that I published my post on also added up to 19 (5+1+5+2+0+1+5=19).

It’s a strange coincidence that my dad would call me up to tell me about the significance of the number 19, seeing as how my post about the significance of numbers in our reality and in religion, was published on a date adding up to 19 as well. It’s even stranger when you consider what I explained above about the number 19 eventually adding up to the number 1, and that I published my post about the Cycle of Life on a date that eventually adds up to the number 1 where the cycle begins and ends.

Could this be a wink of approval from the universe? Such “coincidences” happen very frequently in my life. There are even more interesting ones, and I’ll be writing about them as well in the future.
