Earlier I ran across this little math problem as I was scrolling through FaceBook. I don’t know where this came from originally, if I did I would mention the source. This article is the result of me working out this math problem and the ensuing thoughts it created for me. Those thoughts prompted me to share this math problem on my personal page and in a FB Group I started, First Wave Blue Ray Indigos & Indigos Home, to see if I would get any feedback on it.
Before I go any further I just want to state that all I am sharing here are my thoughts on this. I’m not saying this information is true or relevant to anyone but me. I’m just sharing! Now remember, I am a Numerologist and a Spiritual Growth Guide and Awakening Facilitator, so I am looking at this through that lens.
First, to everyone who responded… Thank you for playing.
Secondly, believe it or not, I was not so much interested in seeing how many people could get the right answer to the math problem as I was in seeing IF people would answer, and IF they did what their answer would be.
Let me explain why, but first let me share the answer to the math problem; or at least what I believe the answer to the math problem to be.
If you answered “40”, your answer is correct. If you answered “96”, your answer is correct, but I believe the truly more correct answer is “40 & 96”.
Here’s why… “40” is the answer to what you actually “see” on the picture question; 1+4=5, 5+2+5=12, 12+3+6=21, so therefore 21+8+11=40.
BUT…. If you “see” beyond what is just on the picture question you realize there is a pattern occurring… 1+4=, 2+5=, 3+6=, this would mean if you keep the pattern going you would have to add.. 4+7=, 5+8=, 6+9=, and 7+10=, before you got to 8+11=.
If you did that you would see that 96 is the answer… let me show you the simplest way you can reach this answer.
The reason I was interested in if people would answer, and what their answer was, is because of what (to me), this can possibly tell us about some of our strengths and weakness in our Spiritual Journey. To me this is more of a psychological test than a math test!
When I first saw this post I stopped and did the math! What I saw on the picture added to 40, but my mind could “see” there is a pattern and therefore a larger picture and this meant there was more information to be had.
I could automatically “see” 1,2,3 in the first column, and 4,5,6 in the second column, but then the sequential pattern disappeared with 8 in the first column and 11 in the second. So… I rationally filled in the two columns to read… 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11. When I did this I could “see” the answer to the math problem was 96 and not 40, yet 40 was correct to what I was seeing with my physical eyes.
Now don’t ask me where this next train of thought came from. I really can’t say for 100% certainty. All I can offer as an explanation is that I am a Virgo with a Scorpio rising, and being such, the Virgo MUST analyze EVERYTHING, and the Scorpio cannot help but to delve into the subconscious and the Mysterious Unknown. This combination just naturally makes me tick this way and makes my mind want to take the pieces of two completely different and seemingly unrelated puzzles and put them together to create a third puzzle that brings those two unrelated puzzles together into one and creates a new and larger picture! It’s just me! J
So here we go with my thoughts on what answering this math puzzle can tell us about our self and how it can possibly give us insight into some of our strengths and weaknesses along our Spiritual Journey. (Remember these are just my personal thoughts on this! And… these are just tendencies. Nothing is set in stone and flows all the way across the board. There is no “one size fits all”).
IF you came up with the answer of “40” you may tend to be a person that is focused on living in the moment, but you also may tend to take things at face value. Living in the moment is considered a very positive thing, but doing so to the point where we just take things at face value without ever questioning what lies below the surface is not always in our best interests; not in our daily life and not in our spiritual journey of consciousness expansion. People who saw this answer tend to be more right brain focused, and may need to consider spending more time in deeper study of spiritual subjects to aid them in expanding their consciousness. Read a book on the workings of the Mayan Calendar; study Sacred Geometry, or Cymatics. Take a class in Astrology or Numerology. Just find a subject in Meta-spirituality and immerse yourself in it, learn all you can.
IF you came up with the answer of “96”, (especially if you automatically saw the full sequence), you most definitely possess the ability to “see” beyond the surface, yet you may tend to spend too much time focused on the future, and may have a more difficult time focusing on living in the moment. You may tend to be more focused on controlling what is coming at you than simply allowing Spirit to bring to you the life experiences that would most benefit your spiritual journey of consciousness expansion.
The ability to see the bigger picture is a positive trait, but not when it interferes with our ability to live in the moment and simply allow life to transpire in the most positive fashion for us. When we do this we actually hinder our spiritual journey of consciousness expansion. People who saw this answer tend to be more left brain focused and may consider putting the book down every once in a while and just letting their mind relax. They may need to consider spending more time in nature and devoting more time to creative and artistic endeavors. Go outdoors and meditate and sing and dance and talk to the trees and flowers. Paint a picture, crochet, or just spend time with your children and pets.
IF you responded to this question but did not get either 40, 96 or both as a correct answer you tend to be adventurous and have little to no problem stepping outside of your comfort zone box, but may have tendencies of being a bit scattered in your thoughts and focus in life, especially in your spiritual journey of consciousness expansion.
A person who answered either incorrectly or just chose to answer with “I don’t know”, may be a bit overwhelmed with life at the moment. When life is overwhelming us we tend to have less time to devote to such seemingly insignificant and trivial subjects; subjects that have little to no bearing on our daily life. This is natural, but it may also be a little indicator that maybe there is a need to start looking at how to bring one’s life into a more balanced state and begin removing drama from daily life. If one’s life is full of drama and constant chaos there is no time for any type of deep spiritual study and growth.
The person who gave incorrect answers or the “I don’t know!” type answer may benefit from strengthening their left brain abilities, and most assuredly would benefit from a regular meditation routine.
The type of person who gave the “I don’t know!” type answer may have a tendency to not be attached to any particular set of beliefs or outcome. While this can be a trait of strength, if taken to extreme, this tendency can cause procrastination and stagnation in one’s spiritual journey of consciousness expansion, because of a lack of motivation and focus on their spiritual growth. This type of person may also have tendencies to have issues with self-confidence. It is also possible they may need to learn to trust their own inner voice and hone their intuitive abilities.
IF you came up with the answer that “40 &96” are both correct you are the type of person that has the ability to “see” and accept that many perspectives and realities exist simultaneously, and each are equally valid. This type of person tends to be fairly balanced in life.
These people have learned to give equal opportunity to their rational left brain and their intuitive right brain abilities. They have learned, or at least have strong tendencies toward, putting equal importance on what their head and their heart have to say and really communicate with both parts of their self equally. They don’t tend to listen only with their mind or their heart to the exclusion of the other. They know that to create a peaceful balanced life that lends its self to advancing their spiritual growth they have to first be balanced within their self.
These are just my first thoughts on this, and I haven’t even looked at the information contained within the Numerology of all this yet! I must say, I look forward to what other information Spirit may bring my way concerning Math and Spiritual Growth. I hope this information may be of assistance to others.
