Although the QZ8501 plane is now confirmed to be in the Java Sea, we still hope that there may be some survivors, who may have possibly swum to a nearby island. Hopefully, the rescuers may be able to rescue some of the passengers.
This is a followup on the previous post on the Probability of adding up to 8888.
Other than the QZ 8501 incident, there are many other incidents that have relation to “8888” or “8” in general. Some of them are the “8888” Uprising in Myanmar, the May 12 Sichuan earthquake, the Blizzard of January 25, and the Tibetan Riots of March 14.
One special fact about 8, is that it is the only natural perfect power that is one less than another perfect power. (2^3=3^2-1) This is known as Catalan’s conjecture or Mihăilescu’s theorem.

A sane explanation of biblical numerology. Davis explains the conventional, rhetorical, symbolic, and mystical use of numbers in this fascinating study of the structure and syntax of biblical numbers.
