I think the date of the patch is interesting, 2/2. In numerology, 22, or double 2s, or in this case a 2 after a 2 symbolizes taking action.
Yeah well in crackpotology, a party SP improvement contained within an upcoming patch, symbolizes awesomeness.
So nyah. :P
Just sayin, I think it's interesting that the first patch of this year falls on a date which includes double 2s, which means taking action or bringing things into fruition. Which is a very positive thing, so no wonder it contains your SP fix of awesomeness. Yes, I smoke lotsa crack. But hey, it's no worse than spending hours/days/weeks interpereting a small poem that only includes a couple of lines to figure out what it tells us about the entire future of FFXIV. :-D
Whatever floats your goat. :P
But crackpot has nothing to do with smoking crack, it just means crazy. And I personally didn't even bother thinking twice about that poem, but in defense of the people who did, the director hinted twice that it was a clue about what they were doing, where as numerology is the art of reading too deep into things looking for stuff that's not there.
That specific example is just a coincidence, but at least it's not ridiculously far fetched like some of those numerology things are... I've heard people say stuff like things have meaning, because it has some number, which has no meaning, but if you split the numbers apart, then add them each to each other twice, then deduct some arbitrary number, then multiply by .4 for whatever reason, then add another arbitrary number, then suddenly it means something. Or whatever else... Really it just seems like they do whatever to get to a point, and by that logic, anything can become anything if you **** around with it enough.
Same reason I think horoscopes are retarded... If you wanna convince me, give me an exact time, date, name, and event, and if the predictions come true 95% of the time, I'll consider believing you. They don't though, they say some vague thing that can apply to **** near anything and anyone, and somehow people buy into it. Whole bunch of nonsense is what that stuff is.
Idk, that stuff just irks me... So I poke fun at it. Don't take it personally though. :P
