Perhaps I’m not entirely alone when I say, I love number palindromes. (I’m off to explore the ‘recursive palindrome’ when I post this! )
0202 2020 is a sequence/pattern of numbers that conveys a lot to me. First and foremost there’s a sense of beauty in the symmetry. I see symmetry? Do you. The way I look at them if you ‘fold’ the numbers back on each other from the gap between them, you get the same thing, like in a mirror. Does that make any sense to you?
(But of course if you look at them another way they’re not palindromes it depends how you ‘fold’ them) I like the idea of folding numbers. So much better than ‘counting’ them. I also respond to the ‘progression’ sense of patterns. An example:
As regards the publishing of Brand Loyalty and All Moments are One Moment. I see a thematic progression from Dystopia to Utopia. I find this reflected in the ‘numbers’ or ‘dates’
2010 2010 to 0202 2020
Obviously 2010 2010 and 2020 2020 would be even better but since we don’t have 20 months in a year it’s impossible.
However bringing clock time into the dates and you get
2020 0202 2020
Which could be rendered backwards as
2010 0101 2010
Creating a whole new ‘significant’ date for Brand Loyalty
20:20 (24 hour clock)
02.02 (2nd Feb)
20:10 (24 hour clock)
01:01 (1st Jan)
Except the ‘moment’ of Brand Loyalty was actually
2010 (October 20th) thus
01.01 has to be the time (01.01am)
2010 (year stays constant)
Though also with Brand Loyalty
1010 2010 was a ‘sequence’ and perhaps this sequence speaks more closely as an analogy to All Moments 0202 2020
Am I the only one who sees a profound beauty in those sequences?
Interestingly, in Chinese there are four character ‘set phrases’ used on paintings which usually have a moral or proverbial meaning. Such phrases are often put together in pairs.

I’m not trying to ‘prove’ anything here, just to represent how I ‘see’ things. I suspect I have a neuro diverse ‘number’ brain.
