Tears For Fears is comprised chiefly of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith

The Jesuit Order, whose logo is a circle, was founded on the 270th day of the year. See more

“Radius, diameter, circumference, area” = 151  |  200 (Reduction)
“Tears For Fears” = 151 |  200 (Ordinal)

The numerology of this album is a tribute to Pi and the Mathematics of the circle

108 is 54+54

When asked about the name of the album, Curt Smith issued this quote:

5454 in the alphabetic order!
Think of this also as 2×54

The quote is 469 letters:

The gematric sum of the 8 track titles on the album is 469

The album was released on a date with 32, 40, 50, and 112 numerology, perfectly matching the word Circle in all four base methods:

The album has 8 tracks. That’s the only number they could have chosen that is only made up of circles.

It was recorded The Wool Hall, which sums to 50, the same as Circle

We saw the Reduction gematria of the album’s eight track titles above. Check out the value in the alphabetic order:

It sums to 1,216 – notice the last three digits. This is the same as the album title, Songs From The Big Chair, in the same method:

Which brings us right back to the Mathematics of the circle

In Hebrew, Circle sums to 143

And what do you know? This just happens to match the names of the tracks in the Reverse order.

In the alphabetic order, Pi sums to 25. The album is just over 2500 seconds.

P is the 16th letter, and I is the 9th, making 169

The first three digits of Pi are 3.14
The date written 3/14 is the 73rd day of the year:

The 73rd Prime number is 367

The simplest equation you can use to get the first three digits of Pi is 22÷7
This also works in gematria:

151, which is the Ordinal gematria of Tears For Fears, sums to 227

151 is the 36th Prime number
The 36th Triangular number is 666

1331 is the number that represents a solar eclipse, the most significant moment of time involving circles. I point this out because I noticed this:

Organic Matrix

This is the part that spooks me out. I looked into this album for a couple of reasons – first off, in 8th grade Drama class, I performed the song Shout for a lip sync we had to do. (Yes, I did the full 6+ minute version). Second, the song Everybody Wants To Rule The World was the first song to become #1 on the billboard charts after I was born in 1985.

And the first line of the song? Welcome to your life

194 minutes on a clock is 3:14, like Pi
“Circle” = 50 (Ordinal)  |  The 50th Prime number is 229

But the really strange part? Check out how Everybody Wants To Rule The World has the rare characteristic of having the same gematria in the two main large-number ciphers:

43 and 99…those are familiar numbers…

Songs From The Big Chair was released on February 25th, 1985, the date written 2/25, which happens to be exactly 99 days before I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

And of course, that’s not all:

The song was released on March 22nd, the date written 3/22

The English Reduction gematria of this string is interesting too:

And in Reverse:

But my name sums to 203 in Ordinal…

It was the song Shout that I chose for the lip sync.
