I forgot to mention palindrome numbers not words.
Which numbers have you seen?
So many. I see multiple palindrome numbers daily.
Which ones have you seen today? Maybe there's a pattern to them, or some significance to them. Do they appear to be completely random?
I'm pretty sure there's a meaning and that's why I'm asking this question. Today I haven't seen any yet because it's still pretty early and I've just started my day but yesterday I've seen 333/2002/2112 and sometimes I also see the same number more than once like 0909/1212/2244. These are all the numbers I've seen in only one day.
Please don't take this as a criticism, but the examples 0909 and 1212 are not palindromes. 0909 backwards is 9090, and 1212 is 2121. For some reason, when I see the numbers 333, 2002 and 2112 I think they may represent those years. I would need more examples to figure this puzzle out.
Is there a particular place you see them more often than others?
That's why I said I see the same number more than once and wrote the palindromes and the repetitive number separately.
I misread your comment. Sorry :(
Okay, this is what I think is happening, based upon the limited information you have provided here. The integer digits 0 through to 9 will, assuming their occurrence to be random, appear to form patterns simply because there are a limited, though nevertheless very large, number of combinations they can possibly form, and when you combine this fact with the fact that the human mind is optimised to see patterns where none exist, you will notice odd (in the sense of unusual, not odd numbers) arrangements that appear to have significance. Does that make sense?
I see them everywhere in digital watches, car numbers, bus numbers, pages of books that I'm reading, at the supermarket, on a restaurant menu. Everywhere.
You seem to have a heightened awareness of both patterns and the apparent appearance of patterns within nature. I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. I hope I'm not sounding dismissive by saying that, because you seem to be really concerned that something sinister is going on here, but I highly doubt that's the case.
I was just hoping it could be a sign that I'm on the right path. Anyways, thank you for your answers.
You may notice that she didn't actually specify where she would see them. You're assuming a lot here, like the fact that she checks the time a lot (and that the clock she checks is a digital one - that 11:11 example doesn't work with analogue timekeepers, which are still quite popular).
@Yaaten that was just an example and I alluded to others. The point being there isn't a hidden meaning. People are naturally inclined to recognise patterns. It is part of our fundamental learning process. People with autism actually recognise and pay more attention to them and people who mistake them for having a meaning they don't actually have are said to suffer from apophenia.
Yes, true, we naturally recognise patterns, and that was the answer I gave to her just a couple of minutes ago before seeing your response. I guess we agree then.

I always take note whenever I see them.
Post your notes then. Let's see.
I've posted them below.
Yes you did. And people pointed out that a) they aren't palindrome they are numbers and b) they are not the same forwards and backwardsThinking you see patterns where there aren't any is a sign of the onset of schizophrenia.
I couldn't remember the medical term for it so I looked it up. It's called Apophenia. You can read about it here.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ApopheniaThe term (German: Apophänie) was coined by psychiatrist Klaus Conrad in his 1958 publication on the beginning stages of schizophrenia. He defined it as "unmotivated seeing of connections [accompanied by] a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness". He described the early stages of delusional thought as self-referential, over-interpretations of actual sensory perceptions, as opposed to hallucinations.
I guess you didn’t read it properly when I said: “That's why I said I see the same number more than once and wrote the palindromes and the repetitive number separately.”
I read it just fine. You can ignore your symptoms if you like.
you just see it with eyes open or when you close your eyes?
Palindromes. They are fun.
I'm talking about palindrome numbers not words.
