Interesting how patterns sometimes seem to emerge randomly and when you least expect to see them. Patterns which otherwise might have gone unrecognized often begin to display as sets of coincidences once they're noticed and taken note of, as the deep mind seeks out for the conscious mind to notice more of what has been called to its attention, deeming it as a potential necessity to survival.
This is probably the rationale behind the repeating sets of numbers that I've begun to notice for the last month or so, every time I make an off-hand glance at a clock. It's odd, but when I'm not specifically looking for the time of day, but happen to glance at a digital clock display that is unexpectedly within eyesight, more often than not the time displayed consists of repeated digits in pairs, triples, or quads, such as the pair, 12:12; or the triples, 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 and 5:55; or the quad, 11:11.
Metaphysics and numerology would provide their own explanations for these occurrences, I'm sure. But I believe that once I noticed the repeated digits a couple of times and also took note of them, I sent a signal to my brain, telling it that it was somehow important for me to become aware of what my eye sees on the clock when those numbers repeat. How many times a clock is within eyeshot containing numbers I don't notice because my brain filters that information in favor of other information in my line of sight is something I would not be aware of consciously. But I'm sure that there are plenty of digital readouts that my eyes see, but my brain does not take note of because it doesn't matter.
Good material for a journal page, though.
