this word calculator assigns numeric value to each letter of english alphabet:

a=1, b=2, c=3, d=4, e=5, f=6 ... z=26

numeric value of any word is then calculated by adding up numeric values of the letters that make up a word. it's as simple as that!

number 13 the calculator is not case sensitive, and numbers, special characters and spaces are ignored, i.e. their value is always 0. this simple, straightforward algorithm resembles the so-called bible code, supposedly embedded in the torah, as described in the following narrative from p, a movie by darren aronofsky:

Hebrew is all math, it's all numbers, you know that? Look.

Ancient Jews used Hebrew as their numerical system, each letter's a number:

The Hebrew A - Aleph - is 1; B - Bet - is 2.

Understand? But look, the numbers are interrelated. Take the Hebrew for father, ab:

Aleph + Bet is 1 + 2 = 3

The word for mother, haim:

Aleph + Mem is 1 + 40 = 41

The sum of 3 and 41 is 44, right?

Now, the Hebrew word for child,

mother + father = child, yelev

Yelev, that's

10 + 30 + 4 = 44

Torah is just a long string of numbers. Some say that it's a code, sent to us from God.

now, for some more archetypal symbolism, take a curious name quazgaa, for example. it adds up to 74.

quazgaa, a principal alien character featured in betty andreasson luca abduction narative, is associated with mythical bird phoenix, an eternal light of being/ becoming, a cosmic fire:

this universe, which is the same for all, has not been made by any god or man, but it always has been, is, and will be an ever-living fire, kindling itself by regular measures and going out by regular measures   [heraclites, fragment 30]

then we have korona, another alien, and a good friend of one clifford stone, an alleged ET interpreter for the US government.

indeed, korona adds up to 74.

note that proper english spelling of the word is "corona", and as such, it adds up to 66. however, it was the alien, korona, who said to clifford:

I am Korona, and that’s with a "K"!

another word, also a name, that of aurora, a dawn, sure enough, it too adds up to 74.

a coincidence? maybe... are there any more such names representing different archetypal manifestations of light, and adding up to 74? find out and let me know.

word of caution: do not jump to conclusions.

victorious Iraq that's right, don't just consume but create, speak up, leave a clear record behind you, don't let the future historians and cultural anthropologists guess about what you thought, how you felt, what you did!

can't sell war on ideological grounds alone anymore, dr fukuyama, privatize it would be better right here, a number of players, institutions capable of running a war, black water comes to mind, NATO and other small potatoes, and they would have to compete for the job.

only then can we reasonably expect to get rid of alienated and uprooted young people who, like anarchist, fascist, the fascists and Marxists before them, Bolsheviks, and other members of the bottom line any game, see ideology as the answer to their personal search for identity, their alienation came from back in a homeland they would understand who they are, but not here, they are not really part of our way of living. either that, or back to the end of history.

shouldn't it be sterilized doctor?

very likely, but there is no time.

Mike spitting images i walked pass by a group of 14 or so years of age boys the other day. one of them was smoking, was it a joint, or was it a cigarette, i don't know, it was dark, and he said to those others - i'm not smoking it, i only just inhale. it was a former u.s. president bill clinton who once said he did smoke marijuana, but the fumes, he said, billy did not inhale that. they all laughed.

i'm with evo morales on this one - ha llegado el momento de redimir nuestras plantas sagradas. the only role for any government in all this, is to prevent the industries marijuana from converting a plant into a carcinogenic industrial product designed for mass consumption. no monopolies, no patents, home grow, many small businesses.
