Seven In a Row... Why and What The F**k is With the Number Seven?

We all move in cycles of seconds, minutes, hours, and days and we ALL - knowingly or not - worship the number 7. It's imbedded into every fabric of our lives, even though we may not be aware of it.

" Reeeelee... " you ask me skeptically.

"Yepper," I reply with a smirk.

Let's summarize some important sevens on this planet.

7 dwarfs
7 oceans
7 continents
7 vertebrae in the neck
7 layers of skin
7 rolls in an ocean wave
7 colors in a rainbow
7 notes in sound
7 directions to choose
7 candles in the Menorah
7 holes in your head
7 days to create Earth
7 days in a week
7 dimensions
7 parts to the male body

Ya think I'm done? Not yet.

7 deadly sins
7 virtues
7 gifts of the Holy Spirit
7 classical planets
7 numbers in a N.A phone number after the area code
7 hills in Istanbul, Rome and Jerusalem
7 liberal arts
7 wonders of the ancient world
7 games in the playoffs for NHL, MLB and NBA

Can you think of any other sevens that might exist?

I can...
Seven blog posts in a row.

I was just curious if anyone else noticed the number seven here and out there in the 'real world'. 😶

Did I miss any? 😎

Your sons wedding day is edgy and certainly a sign of a conspiracy theory.

How was it, by the way? Anything noteworthy to comment on?
Ya know.... when it comes to family, a wedding is a great time no matter what.

"Ahem..." he said, clearing his throat. Then recited what he'd read.

"Seven Directions encompasses everything that exists, it refers to the directionality of north, south, east, west, up, down and center and all that lies in each direction, plant, animal, rock, and tree. We stand in the center of seven directions at all times, and therefore, we are in constant contact with all that is."

Considering that the theory wasn't his to defend, he stood (actually sat) three and waited... for her rebuttal.

Had she uncovered 5 - never before discovered - directions? OR... was she mistaken?

He paused, went to the kitchen to wash some dishes and waited _for his phone to 'bing'. 😶

The seventh son of a seventh son is a concept from folklore regarding special powers given to, or held by, such a son. The seventh son must come from an unbroken line with no female siblings born between and, in turn, be born to such a seventh son.

***One ringy-dingy. Two ringy-dingys***

These are the directions I thought of - N,S,E,W plus the 'corners' NE, NW, SE, SW. Then there is up and down followed by backwards and forwards. Center isn't really a direction, in my opinion, but if it is then so is left and right.

I'm thinking - mind you, this is just my opinion ; one head, 2 arms, 2 legs, 1 body... and one cock 🐓.

True about the horsemen.
Those body parts are probably generalized to more like body chunks.
The article I nabbed that from doesn't list them but I'm guessing ; 2 arms, 2 legs, 1 head, 1 body and the reproductive organs.
That's how they come up with 7.
However I agree that technically, that number is - like you said - in the thousands.
Anything else that you noticed? 🤔
Any new ones that you want to add? 🤔
Thanks for straightening out those horsemen. 👍❗

In the New Testament the number seven symbolizes the unity of the four corners of the Earth with the Holy Trinity. The number seven is also featured in the Book of Revelation (seven churches, seven angels, seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven stars).
