The number of hours in a day

2*12 (of which 12 is a perfect number)

2 + 4 = 6 and 2, 4, 6 is the first part of the sequence of even numbers

2: Cooperation, adaptability, consideration of others, partnering, mediating.

4: A foundation, order, service, struggle against limits, steady growth.

Hexagram #24 of the I Ching

Fu symbolizes turning back toward something or returning, maybe to the safety and comfort of one's home or village.

Tall watch tower with a neat roof.
Footprints leading to and fro.
Call to market? Or, the alarm?

What Google, the modern oracle, says about twenty-four

It looks to be an auspicious year.

(P.S. In case you haven't picked up the hint, today is my 24th birthday)

6 is a perfect number (equals the sum of its divisors other than itself) but 12 is not.

The divisors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 = 16.

The second perfect number is 28 (1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28). The third one is 496, then 8128, then they get really big.

Drat! I misremembered. Oh well, 6 * 4 is 24 and 6 is a perfect number. Thanks for catching my bad math.

It's with some irony that I notice Roceal's new incarnation has 130 posts, and I have 153.

Considering as how I registered a year ago, and Roceal was reincarnated in August, she'll pass me in a week.

Just a little lame numerology... I'm sure Roceal will hit SuperBlabermouth again in no time

Roceal-
Happy Birthday. It's a little late, but thought I would post cause of your I Ching comment.

Happy Belated, ARJ!
So you are an ultimate day of the year baby as well, eh! It's a great birthday, always a party. Sadly my current age is not a perfect number, and gets less perfect with each year...

Not particularly, but I do find the verses that go with the particular hexagrams to be very interesting philosophical/interpretive exercises.
