what the Extropians interest is in practicing this sort of numerology?
I was joking. But the Kabbalah was not a joke.
In Naples "La Smorfia" is very popular. You can easily
choose numbers to bet at the State Lottery. In example
you see, or you dream, a
coffin = 4
coffin closed = 12
coffin opened = 25
coffin turned upside down = 50
coffin empty = 66
coffin and dead woman = 3
coffin and dead man = 84
coffin & vampire = 72
coffin (wooden) = 14
coffin (metal) = 24
coffin in the church = 19
coffin in the grave = 47
After Frank P. Ramsey and Bruno de Finetti
("probability is a state of mind, not a state of matter")
probability is - also - a subjective concept!
