Perfect 9: For Yoko Ono on her 73rd Birthday

February 18 is Yoko Ono’s 73rd birthday and to commemorate the occasion I’ve done a numerological workup, based on John Lennon’s bible, Cheiro’s Book of Numbers, on the “name number” and “birth number” of rock’s foremost widow.

Yoko
1727
17 = 8

Ono
757
19 = 10 = 1
8 + 1 = 9

Or:
Yoko Ono
Lennon
355575
30 = 3
8 + 1 + 3 = 12 = 3

Born February 18, 1933
2 + 18 + 1933 = 27 = 9
or
2 + 9 + 7 = 18 = 9

I explained in my previous post, on the occult significance of 27, how I calculated these numbers, and their numerological significance according to Cheiro. But I didn’t explain the numbers 12 and 3, which are also the name numbers of “John Lennon.”

The number 12, Cheiro says, is the number of “suffering and anxiety of the mind, it is indicated as ‘the sacrifice’ or ‘the victim’ and generally foreshadows one being sacrificed for the plans or intrigues of others.” Threes, on the other hand, love discipline, are “decidedly ambitious, are never satisfied by being in subordinate positions” and “rise to the highest positions in any profession they choose.” Their aim, he adds, is “to have control and authority over others.” (John’s nickname, “Walrus,” is a 3, as well.)

On my way to meet a friend (who blogs anonymously) at an Authors Guild gathering, I saw Yoko Ono on the street. It was about 6 p.m. on January 25, and I was walking uptown, at a brisk pace, on New York’s 5th Avenue, near 38th Street. She caught my eye from about a half block away—a tiny woman wearing a white leather jacket, a mod white cap, and black pants, walking downtown, at an equally brisk pace, accompanied by a tall, athletic-looking fellow, whom I assumed was a bodyguard. But I still wasn’t sure it was her until we strode past each other and I saw the side of her face, behind her sunglasses. I was amazed: she looked even younger than she did the last time I saw her, in September 2002, the day I testified on her behalf at a copyright infringement trial. I’d go so far as to say that she’s the youngest-looking 73-year-old woman I’ve ever seen—and it made me think about what she said in an interview that I’d read a few months ago in what I believe was a British women’s magazine. Death, Ono told the reporter, was avoidable and she didn’t believe in it—or words to that effect.

I’d like to know if she was talking about a Faustian bargain, cryogenic freezing, or an impending medical breakthrough. Because there is no other way to explain eternal life, at least in the physical sense.

Hola Remiso,
Gracias por su nota. I imagine we met the night of the party at the house in Viña del Mar, where my wife and I were staying. But there were a lot of people there and I don’t remember who you are. Perhaps you can post a picture that shows your face. Anyway, abrazos (hugs) to all at Paniko. I look forward to returning to Chile.
