<div>The numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 frequently recurred in Lost. Each corresponded with one of the final candidates to replace Jacob as protector of the Island. The numbers also formed the coefficients in an equation that predicted mankind's extinction.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Before drawing them, Jacob observed these candidates using a lighthouse. The lighthouse's mirrors displayed a different candidate's life with each degree that its dial turned. The numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 corresponded with what turned out to be the final six candidates: ("The Substitute") ("Lighthouse") ("What They Died For")</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>I Lost My Sew What Pro Serial Number</div><div></div><div>Download: https://t.co/jEVobJ9QXL </div><div></div><div></div><div>Though the Numbers, as Damon Lindelof put it, "were around LONG before the early '60s,"[1] mathematician Enzo Valenzetti used them in the 1960s in a mathematical equation. This "Valenzetti Equation" aimed to predict the end of humanity, and the numbers formed its coefficients. The DHARMA Initiative, a scientific venture, conducted research to change one of these coefficients, extending the species' lifespan. (The Lost Experience)</div><div></div><div></div><div>The sequence of numbers formed the serial number of a hatch for a station the Initiative built. When they finished the station, they used the numbers as required input for the station computer protocol. ("Dead Is Dead") ("Man of Science, Man of Faith")</div><div></div><div></div><div>The Initiative broadcast the numbers from a radio tower on the Island. Thanks to the Island's unusual time flow, Ajira 316's cockpit picked up this signal in 2007, years after it had stopped transmitting, but while the broadcast continued in 1988, it reached the French Bésixdouze expedition, leading them to the island. ("Namaste") ("Numbers")</div><div></div><div></div><div>Two U.S. Naval personnel, Sam Toomey and Leonard Simms also heard the transmission. Toomey used the numbers to win a contest, and a string of bad luck followed. He eventually killed himself. Simms ended up in a mental institute, repeating the sequence continually and saying nothing else. Another patient, one of the candidates the numbers represented, heard the sequence from Simms, and he, like Sam, used them to win the lottery. Bad luck ensued, and the man, Hugo Reyes, concluded that the numbers were cursed. ("Numbers")</div><div></div><div></div><div>A search for the numbers' meaning led Hurley to Australia, and then to the Island. He eventually learned he was a candidate, and ended up serving as Protector of the Island for years. ("Numbers") ("Lighthouse") ("The New Man in Charge")</div><div></div><div></div><div>8 is 8th number counting in standard reading format; that is, starting at the top, reading a line left-to-right, then moving to the next line beneath. 15 is 15th, 16 is 16th, 23 is 23rd and 42 is 42nd. If the 4 was a 1 or 7 this would work with all the Numbers.</div><div></div><div></div><div>There are some questions that are very engaging and interesting, and then there are other questions that we have no interest whatsoever in answering. We call it the midi-chlorian debate, because at a certain point, explaining something mystical demystifies it. To try and have a character come and say, "Here is what the numbers mean," actually makes every usage of the numbers up to that point less interesting.</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>Here's the story with numbers. The Hanso Foundation that started the DHARMA Initiative hired this guy Valenzetti to basically work on this equation to determine what was the probability of the world ending in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Valenzetti basically deduced that it was 100 percent within the next 27 years, so the Hanso Foundation started the Dharma Initiative in an effort to try to change the variables in the equation so that mankind wouldn't wipe it itself out.</div><div></div><div></div><div>In fact any positive natural number can be constructed as follows: n = (16 - 15) x n. Which simply requires n additions and as many subtractions. Since zero can also be created by subtracting any of the numbers from itself, all the natural numbers can be created. Since there exists a bijection between the rational and the natural numbers, this means that any rational number can be constructed using only the numbers 15 and 16 in an integer relation.</div><div></div><div></div><div>At the time the Numbers were first prominently featured in the episode Numbers, The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences did not have any integer sequences which included the Numbers.[3] Two days after the episode aired, the numbers (along with 108) were added to the encyclopedia as "The Lost Numbers".[4] Because of this it is highly unlikely that the Numbers have any real-world mathematical or scientific significance. Since then, however, two more sequences have been added which include the Numbers, A122115 and A130826</div><div></div><div></div><div>Again, your number should not be necessary to unlock your account. If your Apple ID is using 2 factor authentication, then the code should be received on a device that is logged in to the account or a phone number you set to receive the through voice calls or SMS. This phone number should obviously not be your own phone number from your iPhone, it can be a lad line or even a friends or relatives Android phone if necessary.</div><div></div><div></div><div>I do have all the names/ID's/passwords/emails whatever you neeed. But I can't access my paypal because it only and only asks for my phone number. I can't even say that I don't have this phone number anymore. there's not any other options.</div><div></div><div></div><div>There's a page for "What should I do if I lose my phone number?" in paypal help center which states that if you lost your phone number, you should login to your paypal using phone number and remove the phone number using sms verification and add a new one. yeah... that helps quite a lot.</div><div></div><div></div><div>What if someone have lost access to the phone number associated with his Etsy account, and also doesn't have any backup codes, it can be difficult to regain access to etsy shop because etsy wouldn't let him access the etsy shop unless he put the otp etsy sends on the connected number . I</div><div></div><div></div><div> CraftyCornishMaids wow. I guess it works differently than in the US. We pay for our number so as long as we pay our bill we have the number. Sounds insane to me that you "have money" on it and they can still take your phone number.</div><div></div><div></div><div>I bought Lightroom 6 two years ago. I downloaded it and logged in with my account perfectly fine and began to use it, thinking because I logged in with my account I assumed Adobe would then automatically register my account. But they didn't. I have recently bought a large amount of presets and when I went to download them it asked for my serial number. Well I threw away the box thinking Adobe would have registered me and it would be as simple as going to my account to find the serial number...</div><div></div><div></div><div>Suggestion: from now on, you need to store ALL of your serial number (not just Lightroom) in a location that you know you can find at a later time. What I do is I create text file on my computer that is named serial_numbers.txt, and place all of your serial numbers into this file; and I make backups to another disk and to "the cloud", so even if my house burns down, I still have access to all of my serial numbers.</div><div></div><div></div><div>By the way, for anyone reading this far, you should never be in the situation where you can't find your serial number (for Lightroom, or for any other software). You need to find a way to store your serial numbers someplace you can find them again. I have a text file, which is backed up to the cloud, for my serial numbers, with the easy to find file name of "serial numbers.txt".</div><div></div><div></div><div>Lmfao. i lost my phone number by dropping my phone into a freaking river. I got a new phone + number. Also, comparing phone vs ID is absurd. Which do you think is more important and would you like to keep private?</div><div></div><div></div><div>If I recall correctly, in the last season it turns out that Jacob numbered the people stranded on the island and those 6 numbers are the ones of the people he judged as worthy to follow in his footsteps. I remember seeing him in the cave where he crossed people/numbers out that did not fulfill his somewhat unclear requirements. The man in black explained this by saying something like "He (Jacob) had a thing for numbers."</div><div></div><div></div><div>The only other real explanation given for the numbers relates back to one of the bonus features with DHARMA showing that the numbers are actually part of an equation that predicts mankind's extinction.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The reason for the numbers to be entered into the computer was to discharge the magnetic power that the Swam station contained. The first time we witness the numbers not being entered caused Oceanic 815 to crash in the first place (the plane flying over and the magnetic field becoming to strong, causing the plane to get out of control and break up and crash).</div><div></div><div></div><div>The second time we witness the numbers being missed is when Locke destroyed the computer, causing Desmond to activate the Fail-Safe, blowing up the Swan and the power it would try to contain in the first place. I can only assume they chose this sequence of numbers either because of the aforementioned equation or because it was the "serial number" of the base.</div><div></div><div></div><div>As far as Hugo, because the numbers have this strange relation to the extinction of man, it could be implied that using them would cause bad luck. However, this is never heavily implied and can be just a plot device/just a string of terrible events that happened in his life.</div><div></div><div></div><div>One final note to add, an answer from Damon Lindelof, explaining why the numbers don't have a definite meaning throughout the series using the Midi-chlorians from Star Wars as an example:</div><div></div><div></div><div>Report your valid U.S. passport lost or stolen immediately to protect yourself from identity theft.Use one of three ways to report it lost or stolen: online, by mail, or in person when you submit an application for a new passport. Do not report a passport lost or stolen if it has expired.When you report your valid passport lost or stolen, we will immediately cancel it. You cannot use it for international travel even if you find it later. Want to immediately replace your valid lost or stolen passport? Reporting it lost or stolen does not automatically replace it. You must apply in person and submit both Form DS-64 and Form DS-11 if you want a replacement passport.</div><div></div><div> dd2b598166</div>
