562. another number game

the guru said, “if you want to know the #zen of numbers, i have a simple game for you: look around until you see your first number, a single digit. this is your kōanic number. for the rest of the day, look for that number. and notice where you notice it. patterns will emerge.”

“what kinds of patterns?” asked a student.

“you tell me.”

note a number (not on your screen) and try the guru’s trick today. tweet him on twitter at @koanoftheday when you discover a pattern. try it with a different number every day.
