Speaking of numbers, heniek, recently following research on the News-Benders screenplay I came across an old episode of Get Smart.

Get Smart

From Wiki.....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get_Smart

Get Smart is an American comedy television series which parodies the secret agent genre that was popular in the United States in the late 1960s. The program was created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry and had its television premiere on NBC on September 18, 1965.

The series centers on bumbling secret agent Maxwell "Max" Smart (Adams), also known as Agent 86, and his more sensible female partner, Agent 99 (Feldon). Agents 86 and 99 work for CONTROL, a secret U.S. government counterintelligence agency based in Washington, DC. CONTROL is a spy agency founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Harold Harmon Hargrade, a career officer in the United States Navy's N-2 (Intelligence) branch.

The nemesis of CONTROL is KAOS, described as "an international organization of evil". In the series, KAOS was supposedly formed in Bucharest, Romania, in 1904.

The episode below plot is an Control agent goes undercover as a worker at the Jericho Construction Company to learn how KAOS destroys three important high rise government buildings.

Season Two, Get Smart Episode #52,
February 18, 1967

Note the scene (0:7s) at the begining of the video, maybe the creators conversed with Stanley Kubrick?

Smart Fit the Battle of Jericho



The title refers to the well-known spiritual "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho" with its tagline "And the walls came tumbin' down" which retells the Biblical story found at Joshua 6:15-21.

Well, it wasn't well known to me so I thought I would do a search on Google.

One of the top of page results was a video of a group called The Martins performing Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho [Live]. The Martins are a Christian music, vocal trio composed of three siblings: Joyce Martin Sanders, Jonathan Martin, and Judy Martin Hess.

Like you, numbers trigger something in my consciousness, and bearing in mind the song's content "And the walls came tumbin' down" and the subject matter of Get Smart episode of high rise buildings being blown up by explosives, I thought I try and find what the numbers were and after watching through the performance a second time I paused the video and found the numbers to be...

3-8:45

Coincidence or maybe not.

You're at the top of the game on this stuff,

I do remember "Get Smart" when I was a little kid but would have been hard pressed to remember the details you mentioned. I love the name of the construction company. How fitting. The whole episode has an amazing "coincidental" flavor to what happened in 2001.

The numbers "3-8:45" pertain to the Get Smart video ? Not sure how to look at them, "3-8" , 3 to 8 minutes ?

Heniek, one way is this....

3-8:45

(3+8) = 11 (4+5) = 9 which give us 11 and 9 or 9 11

It can be very hard to distinguish a thing per se from the use of that thing. For example, mathematics is perfectly abstract and devoid of any moral or political dimensions, but when it is used as a tool by banks to practice usury or by statisticians to lie through the media, it may seem "evil". Something similar could be said about gnosis and gnosticism. The former is merely understanding of "the math of ultimate reality", while the latter is a movement, practice, sect or arbitrary doctrine derived from selected elements of gnosis, in many cases degenerating into superstition and idolatry. The secret societies that have mushroomed since the Renaissance and which run as a powerful undercurrent throughout the modern-day Nutwork are rife with gnosticism. But that doesn´t mean that the gnosis which they usurped and disfigured, especially when they transitioned from operative to speculative, is any more evil and man-made than mathematics.

Interestingly, Fulcanelli, a prominent but anonymous French alchemist, insisted that the true masters of gnosis never even knew each other:
The pretended Brotherhood of the Rose Cross never had any social existence. Adepts bearing this title are only brothers through knowledge and the success of their work. No oath compels them, no statute binds them together, no rule apart from the hermetic discipline, freely accepted, voluntarily observed, influences their free will [...] The Rose Cross did not know one another; they had neither meeting place nor headquarters, nor temple, ritual, or external mark of recognition [...] They were and still are isolated workers dispersed throughout the world [...] True, some masters were able to assemble young aspirants around them and accepted the mission of counseling them, directing them, orienting their efforts and creating some small, sometimes recognized, often mysterious, initiation centers whose souls they were [...] If the Rose Cross are brothers through discovery, work, and science, brothers through acts and works, it is in the manner of the philosophical concept which considers all human beings members of the same human family.

Fulcanelli: "The Dwellings of the Philosophers", p. 95.
