### 36 38 47 52 84 144 151 187 666 | Let's Go Crazy (Purple Rain album) and Prince's Elevator Death, April 21, 2016

The title is interesting.  So is the topic, the afterlife, especially the day after his death.  In this post, we ask ourselves, did Prince "go crazy, punch a higher floor"?  Don't worry, it will become more clear as we go along.  Let's begin by decoding the title of the song.

151 is the 36th prime and 2016 is the year of "36" and "666".  Prince was 5'2".

2016 = 20+16 = 36
When you sum 1 through 36, it totals 666 (Prophecy = 666, 106 and 52)

Paisley Park = 52; Prophecy = 52

In light of Prince dying from the flu in an 'elevator', the lyrics that stand out about this song are "And if the elevator tries to bring you down, go crazy, punch a higher floor."

Familiar numbers, especially when it comes to death.

Remember, Prince died on the 44th Parallel North, in a place that might as well have been named "Death City".

This number '144' has a lot to do with time, and Prince sung about "time" in light of the health of the "mind" in this song we're now examining.

Yesterday I pointed out what was so special in regards to the 'time' and date, Prince died, in regards to his birthday and the loss of his recent protege, Vanity, February 15, the third day of 'Lupercalia'.

And to get back to where we started, when you sum the first 144 decimal points of Pi, it totals 666.  Again, connecting to the title, "Let's go crazy".  If you ask me, publicly faking your own death is pretty "crazy" behavior.

Let's examine some of the song details and release date.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let%27s_Go_Crazy

The release date of the single is interesting.  Notice July 18 can be written 18/7, a lot like the '187' homicide code.  It was also a date with 'death' numerology.

7/18/1984 = 7+1+8+1+9+8+4 = 38 (Prince) (Death)
7/18/1984 = 7+18+(1+9+8+4) = 47 (Pop) (Rock) (Legend) (Agent)
7/18/1984 = 7+18+19+84 = 128
7/18/84 = 7+18+84 = 109

July 18, 1984, was the 199th day of the year, the 46th prime number.

Sacrifice = 1+1+3+9+9+6+9+3+5 = 46 (Vanity)
Vanity died on 46th day of the year

Notice this single also came off of the Purple Rain album.

Purple = 7+3+9+7+3+5 = 34
Rain = 9+1+9+5 = 24
Purple Rain = 58 (Freemasonry)

Purple Rain released in 1984, on George Orwell's birthday, the author of 1984.  That is very interesting in itself.  Even more interesting is how Michael Jackson died on this date, in 2009, 156-days after Obama became President of the Untied States, a man with many '84' connections himself.

6/25/1984 = 6+25+19+84 = 134
6/25/1984 = 6+25+(1+9+8+4) = 53
6/25/1984 = 6+2+5+1+9+8+4 = 35
6/25/84 = 6+25+84 = 115

1. As the numerical sum of 36 is 666
the numerical sum of it's reflection 63 is 2016

And since I have the technology:
the numerical sum of 666 is 222111
and the numerical sum of 2016 is 2033136

1. Thank you, that is something else about '63'.

2. What technology do you use by the way?

4. Thanks Milo, If you can find an analytical solution, that is always best.

Zachary, I've been tinkering with a computer language called Haskell lately, Haskell can work with BIG integers so it is good for problems such as these.

The function I was using to calculate sums looks like this:

sumInt :: Integer -> Integer
sumInt 1 = 1
sumInt n = n + sumInt (n-1)

Which is a function that takes an Integer and returns an Integer. It is composed of two clauses, one if passed a '1' returns a '1' the other clause if passed any other number takes that number and then calls itself on that number minus one. That sort of solution is called a recursive solution.

Haskell also has syntax for generating lists and applying functions on lists. So to produce a list from 1 to 32 say:
> [1..36]
which produces:
[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36]

and we see good 'ol 36 in the list

Now to apply the summation function to a generated list, I can use a 'map' function which maps a function to a list. You can pass functions as parameters to functions in Haskell

> map sumInt [1..36]
[1,3,6,10,15,21,28,36,45,55,66,78,91,105,120,136,153,171,190,210,231,253,276,300,325,351,378,406,435,465,496,528,561,595,630,666]

And we see good ol' 666 in the list. Of course, if you think about it, that's an inefficient method to generate the this particular list.

And as I said Haskell can easily work with Big integers:

> sumInt 63
2016
> sumInt 2016
2033136
> sumInt 2033136
2066822013816

And usual:

2. Wow, Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009. Exactly 25 years after the release of Purple Rain.

He also has TWO sons both named Prince Michael Jackson. His daughter is Paris Michael
Paris is a scramble of pairs (sets of two)
Crazy stuff!

1. Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Have you seen my videos on the death of Michael Jackson? It is connected to Obama taking office and more. Lots of the same numbers.

3. Oh, and Michael was also born in 1958. So was Madonna, on August 16.

1. Uhh Edward... You don't need advanced technology to find those answers... You are just atrophying your brain muscles, by using an unneeded computer program... I will keep it very simple for the algebraically challenged...

To get the sum (Triangular Number) for 36:

Step 1) 36 x 37 = 1,332

Step 2) 1,332 ÷ 2 = 666

To get the sum (Triangular Number) for 63:

Step 1) 63 x 64 = 4,032

Step 2) 4,032 ÷ 2 = 2016

To get the sum (Triangular Number) for 2016:

Step 1) 2016 x 2017 = 4,066,272

Step 2) 4,066,272 ÷ 2 = 2,033,136

In case you may want to understand more... Here is the technical equation to implement, when solving for the sum of numbers in their proper sequential order (Triangular Numbers):

Xn = n(n+1)/2

When using this rule, you can solve for any Triangular Number. (The previous two-step method shown at the top, is a shortened method; to make things easier for the mathematic illiterate)

Example #1: X17 = 17(17+1)/2

17 + 1 = 18 x 17 = 306 ÷ 2 = 153

Thus the Triangular Number for 17 is 153.

Example #2: X26 = 26(26+1)/2

26 + 1 = 27 x 26 = 702 ÷ 2 = 351

Thus the Triangular Number for 26 is 351.

You can use whichever method you find is easier to remember... The best part about doing it this way, all you need is your brain! (Maybe some scratch paper for the larger numbers of course)

2. True, analytical solutions are always best. However they aren't always practical. As an example, let's say the the assignment is: "Find every word in a given paragraphs whose simple English geometry is a prime number" I could write a program for that.
