# I Equal 3

Here is something I discovered one day when I was very, very bored. Up until that point my favorite number had always been 1 (Ozzie Smith’s number), but I am thinking that I have no choice but to change it to 3. Here’s why:

When combined in many different ways, the numbers in my birthdate can be reduced down to the number 3.

3 x 27 = 81,

3 + 2 + 7 = 12

3 + 2 + 7 + 8 + 1 = 21,

3 x 2 x 7 x 8 x 1 = 336,

3 x 2 x 7 x 1 x 9 x 8 x 1 = 3024

Also, if you add the individual numbers of each of those answers together,
you get a number that can be reduced down to 3.

8 + 1 = 9

1 + 2 = 3

2 + 1 = 3

3 + 3 + 6 = 12 (1 + 2 = 3)

3 + 0 + 2 + 4 = 9

The same thing happens if I add together the number values of each letter in my name.
[A=1, B=2, etc.]

Adding the number value of each letter in my full name
[Timothy James Eugene Payne] equals: 276.

When the values of the letters in each name are multiplied together and then the value of each name are added together, it comes to a total of: 140,697,600.

When the values of every letter are multiplied all the way through my entire name it comes to a grand total of: 12,489,569,820,000,000,000,000

2 + 7 + 6 = 15 [1 + 5 = 6]

1 + 4 + 0 + 6 + 9 + 7 + 6 + 0 + 0 = 33 [3 + 3 = 6]

1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 9 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 8 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 54 [5 + 4 = 9]

Wow.
