5 is the third digit of my birth year (1952) and second digit of my previous life birth year (1516).
so take 3 (for third digit) and multiply by 2 (for second digit), and you get 6.
so now i have 56, which if you divide by my favorite number, 8, you get 7.
in other words, 567, which just so happens to be the number of this post.
try to explain that away numerology naysayers!
