P.S. 44

My wife suggested it was like the number 42 being the answer to everything. But as I pointed out to her, if 44 is the answer I still don't know the question.

beleaving is seeing

As an artist I have a tendency to see things others do not. which in part may explain why I keep seeing the number 144 and 44.
I had a professor once ask me"is the apple red". I said "yes it is red." The professor laughed and said"no the apple is not red. The light striking the apple is made up of all the colors of the rainbow. All the colors but red are absorbed by the apple and the color red is the only color reflected. As a result you see the apple as being red but in truth it is only reflected light. So if the apple is only reflecting light and that is all we see, what is the true color of the apple or for that matter what is the true color of anything? Do we live in a world of mirrors or is it another illusions of the mind? Do we really want to know or does it matter in a world where people only see what they want too? With the world made up of so many different kinds of people, of every skin color and of every religion, should we be concerned who is what color or belief. After all, if we can not trust the apple to be red what can we trust in a house of mirrors?

what does it mean when you see the number 44 everywhere

I have been seeing the number 44 everywhere or the number 144 for the past six months. This isn't to say I'm crazy or that I am psychic, just curious as to what it means. I am also curious if anyone else has been seeing the same thing. The other day the number 144 showed up several times. It showed up on a McDonald's order, on a car license plate, a street address , graffiti on a wall , Wal-Mart receipt , and a piece of trash . So what are the odds or am I a subconscious looking for this number or numbers And if so why ? if subconsciously I am looking for the number what are the odds of finding that number in so many different places?
It's meaning has many from religion to numerology to simple cube or gross or even the four corners of the earth.
