26 or coincidence?
On December 26 an earthquake of 9.0 magnitude struck the west coast
of the northern Indonesian island of Sumatra . In 2003, on the same
date and same month, an earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter
scale struck south-eastern Iran (Bam). In Japan on September 26,
a strong quake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.8 hit the Northern
Japanese island of Hokkaido at 4.50 a.m. On May 26, Sendai, Japan
was hit by an earthquake. And on October 26, the Gansu Province
in China was hit by two strong earthquakes.
2002, April 26, an earthquake measuring 7.1 struck Marianna Islands.
In 2001, January 26, an earthquake struck Gujarat in India. And
in the same year, in September, another earthquake hit Chennai.
number 26 seems to have a strange link with earthquakes. History
has recorded more earthquakes occurring on the 26th than any other
date. "This is purely coincidental. There are many earthquakes
occurring on different dates," said Prof. Sarath Weerawarnakula,
the Director of the Geological and Mines Survey Bureau.
Dr. Hanz Vischjager, a Dutch psychotherapist, who has written books
on psychotherapy and numerology and now conducts a counselling class,
says it's all to do with the number eight.
you calculate the 2 and 6 in the 26, you get 8. Generally, number
8 is a difficult number because it includes twos and fours. To achieve
anything, the 8 has to put in great effort. The positive side of
number eight is that they have a burning desire to achieve material
wealth. But the desire to accumulate material wealth will make them
fall. Even if they succeed, it is for a short time," said Dr.
Vischjager added that the total number of December 26, 2004 was
eight. "When these numbers end up in eight, we have to be cautious.
There is a chance of some kind of destruction occurring on these
days," he said adding that the Bam earthquake which occurred
on December 26 had the total number of seven, which is not a number
of destruction, but this year, the date had number eight.
