### 33 | The Next "33" Life Number and the 28-Year Solar Cycle

The next date a person can be born on and acquire a "33" life number will be the date of September 29, 2029 or 9/29/2029.
• 9/29/2029 = 9+2+9+2+0+2+9 = 33
Up until this date, the digits simply won't reach high enough to yield a value of "33".  The next "33" date after 9/29/2029 , will again be a stretch.  It will be September 29, 2038, or 9/29/2038.
• 9/29/2038 = 9+2+9+2+0+3+8 = 33
That is a span of nine years, or a third (33.3%) of twenty-seven.  Twenty-seven years is infamous in our culture for the age "rockstars" die at.  Twenty-seven is also one year short of the full "Solar Cycle", which is a span of 28-years.  Courtesy of Wikipedia, lets read about the 28-year Solar Cycle.
The solar cycle is a 28-year cycle of the Julian calendar with respect to the week. It occurs because leap years occur every 4 years and there are 7 possible days to start a leap year, making a 28 year sequence.
This cycle also occurs in the Gregorian calendar, but it is interrupted by years such as 1700, 1800, 1900 and 2100, which are divisible by four but which are not leap years. This interruption has the effect of skipping 16 years of the solar cycle between February 28 and March 1. Because the Gregorian cycle of 400 years has exactly 146,097 days, i.e. exactly 20,871 weeks, one can say that the Gregorian so-called solar cycle lasts 400 years.
Calendar years are usually marked by Dominical letters indicating the first Sunday in a new year, thus the term solar cycle can also refer to a repeating sequence of Dominical letters.
Unless a year is not a leap year due to Gregorian exceptions, a sequence of calendars is reused every 28 years.
The name solar cycle comes from Sunday, the traditional first day of the week.
Counting back 28-years from September 29, 2029, is the date September 29, 2001- just 18 days after the attacks of September 11, 2001.  Twenty-eight years before this was the year 1973, and 1973 was a real "dandy".  Courtesy of Wikipedia, let's take the time to look at major events that happened in 1973, from the introduction of "Lite Beer" by Miller Brewing Company, aka "33" Brewing Company, to the death of Lyndon B. Johnson, making it so that all prior Presidents were no longer living.  At the time, Richard Nixon was the President of the United States, and would resign the following years, 1974.  Perhaps '74 was the year of the martyr.
• Jesus was crucified at 33 on the cross
• Jesus = 10+5+19+21+19 = 74
• Cross = 3+18+15+19+19 = 74
• What did I say about '74 being the year of the martyr?
• Prohibition ended in 1933, or '33
• '33 was the bottom of the Great Depression
• Miller = 4+9+3+3+5+9 = 33
• Miller Brewing Company
Anyhow, here is the amazing list of "big events" in the year 1973, courtesy of Wikipedia.  In all honesty, I see a lot of future blog posts coming after looking up this year in history, wowzas!  For example, how do you feel about Henry Kissinger winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, the year the WTC opened, five years to the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.?  Henry winning is worse than Obama the Drone Bomber!  That guy probably has more blood on his hands than any person living on this planet... and that was probably already true 41-years ago, when he won the Nobel Peace Prize!

1. I bet you recited that all from memory!

Interesting that after 1999 became 2000 the gematria values of all the dates suddenly dropped significantly. Do they now refer back to the coptic calendar or how do you suppose they will accomodate for this? My guess is that a lower number will suddenly gain prominence.

2. That might be an interesting chart to draw out showing the frequency of the 33 dates within a calendar (especially for the 20th century). It may help to simply check those particular days to see if anything more extraordinary happens with any greater frequency.

I volunteer you Zach!

3. I have thought about doing just that, I nominate you to help. Ha!

4. Before it's all said and done Barak the Gay Blade Obama will be the reigning champ and "...guy (THAT WILL) probably (HAVE) has more blood on his hands than any person living on this planet...I too was fooled like millions of other 'blacks' when O was selected as POTUS...can you imagine the gut busting that went on in the homes of the Elitist while watching 'us' cheering and crying bc the first black (really 7th or 8th black, actually biracial, bc ain't no way joke or not they'd allow a 100% "NI@@A" in no damn White House!!!) POTUS was 'elected', knowing damn well he was a Homosexual and his 'wife' was a frickin Tranny???

They're going to make damn sure that he goes down as THE ABSOLUTE WORST POTUS that EVER lived, just bc of his skin color...that fuckin puppet ass sell-out of not only blacks, but ALL 'HUMAN BEINGS' PERIOD!
