Social Security's birthday makes it a LEO--as in FROM the heart, a love-based entity. How apt!
Using its original birth date: 8 + 14 = 22 and if one adds its year of origin as single digits, then it's 1 + 9 + 3 + 5 = 18.
Following numerology guidelines (ones that enable any birth date or inception date to accord with one of the Ancient Chinese I ching's 64 Life-grams or Kuas a/k/a hexagrams), one then combines 22 with 18 and the I ching number is 40: Deliverance. Again: absolute synchronicity.
How many people indeed found a form of Deliverance through their S.S. checks?
I've watched the "To everything there is a number, and a time for every purpose under heaven" play out with similar synchronicity; and the "concordance" remains a marvel to me.
For instance, 9 + 11 (20) + 2001 (3) is 20 + 3 or 23. That number is termed "Splitting apart" in the I ching, and again, how apt the events of time accorded with the numerological fabric reflecting it.
No one with HEART would ever wish to diminish Social Security.
It's good to see Mr. Eskow skate past the ideology veneer into the reality: that billionaires and those who are too callous to share any iota of their personal good fortune with others (who are needier) latch onto the rationales that attempt to hide their own naked selfishness. The School of Scrooge lives on among Conservatives. Shame on them!
