Hello, Gematrinators!

“Life of Pi” Riddle in This Week’s News

Publication date September 11, 2001 (Canada)

Think about the big news story from the end of the week – a man stole an airplane from Seattle-Tacoma Airport before crashing in it and dying. His name was Richard Russell.

Today, NASA launched the Parker Probe into orbit around the sun.

Life of Pi is a Canadian fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. The protagonist is Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, an Indian boy from Pondicherry who explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

Richard Parker is the name of the Tiger in the film Life of Pi, which was published on September 11, 2001, the same day as the worst terror attack in United States history. The parallels between 9/11 and the Richard Russell story are easy to draw.

After the 9/11 attacks in 2001, the New York Yankees defeated the Seattle Mariners, who won 116 games (an upside-down 9/11), to advance to the World Series. Before the Mariners, Seattle had a baseball team named the Pilots for one year in ’69"Pi" = 69 (Jewish)

"Richard Russell" = 690 (Jewish)

The film adaptation of Life of Pi came out 28-Sep-2012

9 + 28 + 20 + 12 = 69

The date of the plane crash outside of Seattle was August 10th, written 8/10, almost exactly 810 months after the Governor of Washington was born.
Strangely enough, this matches the Jewish gematria of the lead character of Life of Pi:"Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel" = 810 (Jewish)

In the Reverse order, Pi sums to 29"Pi" = 29 (Reverse Ordinal)

Richard Russell is said to have been 29 years old. His nickname was Beebo and he crashed on Ketron Island:"Beebo" = 29 (English Ordinal)"Ketron" = 29 (Full Reduction)


Life of Pi, and thus the 9/11 attacks, happened on the 254th day of the year

"Life of Pi" = 2504 (Reverse Squares)

From that date to the Seattle incident is 202 months, 3 days:202 Months, 30 Days

September 11th was an eclipse ritual

"הירח (The Moon)" = 223 (Hebrew Gematria)

"Masonic" = 223 (Jewish)

"The Synagogue of Satan" = 223 (English Ordinal)


713 is a significant number to this code as well.

"שַׁבְתַאִי = Saturn" = 713 (Hebrew Gematria)

"Total eclipse" = 713 (English Extended)

Measuring from the film release of Life of Pi to the date of the Washington plane crash:70 Months, 13 Days
