numbers

You don’t know?! Okay… that thing in the woods? Maybe it’s a monster. Maybe it’s a… pissed off giraffe, I don’t know. The fact that no one is even looking for us? Yeah, that’s weird. But I just go along with it, ’cause I’m along for the ride. Good old fun-time Hurley. Well, guess what? Now — I want some friggin’ answers!

Hugo “Hurley” Reyes, Lost

For all you castaways – 815 flies forever. Sixteen tons and I got Lost. This May 23, I raise my forty to those gone, but never forgotten.

Damon Lindelof

You know before we, before I found you, the numbers haunted me. I never felt so helpless in my entire life. I know I can’t get justice for all of them, but the possibility of having just one.

Harold Finch, Person of Interest

It takes the average human seven minutes to go to sleep, but according to Hand’s Human Physiology, it takes the same average human fifteen to twenty minutes to wake up. It is as if sleep is a pool from which emerging is more difficult than entering. When the sleeper wakes, he or she comes up by degrees, from deep sleep to light sleep to what is sometimes called “waking sleep,” a state in which the sleeper can hear sounds and will even respond to questions without being aware of it later…except perhaps as fragments of dreams.

Stephen King, Pet Sematary

As a basketball fan, I get sick and tired of people talking about numbers. To me, the world is getting too materialistic.
