11:11 (numerology)

This article is about numerological beliefs regarding the time 11:11. For other uses, see 11:11.

Numerologists believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than can be explained by chance or coincidence.[1] This belief is related to the concept of synchronicity. Some authors claim that seeing 11:11 on a clock is an auspicious sign. Others claim that 11:11 signals a spirit presence.[2][3] The belief that the time 11:11 has mystical powers has been adopted by believers in New Age philosophies.[4] However, skeptics say that Uri Geller's examples of 11:11 phenomena in world events are examples of post-hoc reasoning[5] and confirmation bias.[6]

Significance in dates

For various reasons, people ascribe different kinds of significance to dates and numbers; for example, the 2011 date, "11-11-11", showed an increase in the number of marriages taking place in different areas throughout the world, including the U.S.[7] and across the Asian continent.[8] Babies born on this date also received special media attention.[9]
