August 4 is the date Skynet goes live in Terminator 2. Judgment Day follows on August 29, 1997. It should be noted that Barack Hussein Obama's birthday falls on August 4, and the 9th of Av, the Jewish Holiday of Tragedy also falls on August 4 this year. This date, August 4, might draws its significance from the number 84, which is alluded to in George Orwell's 1984. The Gematria of the name "United States of America" also reduces to 84. Could it be that we're in for a major surprise this year? August 4, 2014 and August 29, 2014 will follow the narrative of Terminator 2 by 17-years.
It should be noted that James Cameron is the director of Terminator 2.
- Cameron = 3+1+4+5+9+6+5 = 33
- Terminator = 20+5+18+13+9+14+1+20+15+18 = 133
