Alexander Solzhenitsyn passes at the age of 89
Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (IPA: /ʌljikˈsɑːndʌr soʊlʒʌˈniːtsʌn/ Russian: Алекса́ндр Иса́евич Солжени́цын, Russian pronunciation: [ɐlʲɪˈksandr ɪˈsaɪvʲɪtɕ səlʐɨˈnʲitsɨn]) (December 11, 1918 – August 3, 2008) was a Russian novelist, dramatist and historian. Through his writings, he made the world aware of the Gulag, the Soviet labour camp system, and for these efforts, Solzhenitsyn was both awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970 and exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974. He returned to Russia in 1994. That year, he was elected as a member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in the Department of Language and Literature. He was the father of Ignat Solzhenitsyn, a well-known conductor and pianist. He died at home after years of declining health on August 3, 2008.[3
Some numbers and cycles to reflect on:
1) Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's numerical age (NA) was 32,743 days which factors into 239 prime X 137 prime. 239 days from 20080803 brings us to 20090330 which will be the 89th day of the New Year.
2) Aleksandr was born on 19181211 which was/is the 89th day from/including 9/14 (914) which factors into 457 prime X 2 which is the 89th prime number.
3) Wikipedia reported "Solzhenitsyn died of heart failure near Moscow on August 3, 2008 at 23:45 local time...." 23:45 is 16 minutes from the first minute of the New Day which can be rendered as 12:01 am which corresponds to 12/01 which is always 23 "I Am" + 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ (6 BC). The combination of the numbers "23 & 16" resonates very strongly with me for I lived at 2316 Sherman Avenue here in Evanston, IL for 9 years.
