Eerie 9/11 Coincidences?

Traders puzzled by eery 911 closing of S&P futures

CHICAGO - In an ironic twist, the September Standard & Poor's 500 futures contract closed Tuesday at 911.00 — a day before the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

There was some buzz on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange stock index futures trading floor Wednesday about why that happened, but there were no reports of collusion or price-fixing.

"It was bizarre, it was strange, but it wasn't manufactured," said Richard Canlione, vice president of institutional financial futures at Salomon Smith Barney. "It was just the rules of coincidence ... That's just where the market was."



N.Y. Lottery Draws 9-1-1 on 9/11

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - On the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks, a date known as 9-11, the evening numbers drawn in the New York Lottery were 9-1-1.

"The numbers were picked in the standard random fashion using all the same protocols," said lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman. "It's just the way the numbers came up."

Lottery officials won't know until Thursday morning how many people played those numbers or the total payout, she said.

For the evening numbers game, the New York Lottery selects from balls numbered zero to nine circulating in a machine at the lottery office. Three levers are pressed, and three balls are randomly brought up into tubes and then displayed.

Were these incidents coincidences? Were they rigged?

Another one that they are talking about is the Yankees beat the Orioles 5-4 (=9) last night in 11 innings.

Another amazing coincidence according to September11News.com: "According to Hebrew scriptures September 11, 1999 was the 6,000th anniversary of Adam's creation, and year 1 on the Hebrew calendar." Link

I looked at the clock last night when the President was speaking and it said 9:11. The same thing happened earlier in the day (the morning I think). Spooky!

Oh no! I had a clock with the reverse: 11:09. It must be posessed.

2001 was one of the years in which Independence Day and the 4th of July fell on the same day.

As incredible as that is, this happened to me too. Also, at 9:11 today I turned on the TV to MSNBC and they were covering the events of 9/11. Now what are the odds of that?!

There's got to be a FR mathematician out there who could calculate the odds of single or double events such as these. I would think that the probability numbers would be quite high against and rising.

Any philosophers out there who think this is an illustration of "collective manifestation" or some such thing?

Frankly Flotsam, I'm baffeled. Maybe that's why I leak hot air.

Without going too deeply into the calculations, yes, the odss against something on the level of what happened in the last few days is quite high. There are valid objections to calling it too heavy a coincedence, but even those things taken into account, I'd very roughly estimate that what happened was roughly on a 50,000-500,000 to 1 against scale.

Any philosophers out there who think this is an illustration of "collective manifestation" or some such thing?

Here's a web site that has been investigating that very question for some time. Rough summary is that they perform a large number of what amount to virtual coin flips from hundreds of nodes throughout the world. These are events which really should not at all be related to real-world activities, but that's exactly what they compare them to.

The result? Well, the web site is very good about not drawing conclusions and leaving that instead to the reader, but just look at their data from last September 11th. If you thought the above was freaky...

Didn't Louis Farrakhan give a speech about 7 years ago about the numbers 9 & 11? I don't remember the details because it was so bizarre.

It was also reported that a lot of people around the country dialed 911 on 9/11.

That's not strange, what would have been really eerie is the Orioles beating the Yankees in 11.
