Title: Numerical Perspectives Along US 89

by Fred K. Smart III - Evanston, Illinois

US 89 is an amazing highway that holds a very powerful place in my personal life journey as well as the history of our family.   Just over one mile south of Clyde Park, Montana at 1310 along the east side of US 89 is the entrance to the "Wolfe Ranch" family cabin which used to be part of a larger 1200 acre ranch which was owned by grandmother and grandfather, C.D. "Bill"  and Dorothea Wolfe.  We have about 50 acres on the east of 89 and another 400+ acres on the west side which including some hay fields and riverbottom land along the Shields River and some dry land above on the western side of the river.  Between 1-2+ miles of the Shields River meanders along this wonderful riverbottom land which is a sanctuary for birds, eagles, blue herron, beaver, deer, elk, moose, and some very large brown trout.

My entire family spent 4-5 days at the cabin in early August of this year.  We had a wonderful time playing, hiking, floating the river, driving into Clyde Park, Wilsall and Livingston and just relaxing around the fire as we watched the sunrise, sunset and the brilliant stars shine during the night. 

The old part of our cabin was built during the 1880's and was, at one time, the official post office for the valley.  An addition of a bathroom, closet, greatroom and fireplace was made during the early 1950's.   We can comfortably sleep between 8-9 individuals at any one time.  In years past we've had very large family reunions on this property which were only possible if some of us stayed at a local B&B in Clyde Park (The Gibson Cassidy House) while others stayed in RV's or camped in tents either around the cabin or down on the riverbottom.  Beginning in 1989 - on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Montana's statehood - our family began a series of annual family reunions at "The Cabin" during each July 4th which stretched all the way to the year 2004.  Summer baseball and tournament schedules with 3 sons have caused a conflict during the past 4 years but we were very grateful to be able to get back out there after being away for 5 years.

As a child growing up in the 1960's I remember being hauled out to Montana by my parents in our great red Pontiac station wagon from our home in Battle Creek Michigan loaded to the gills with luggage, 4 kids and two dogs in tow.  When we moved to New Canaan Connecticut it was much harder to pull off an annual trip but we did manage to make at least 2 trips by train with changes and some brief layover time in Chicago where my mom would drag us all over the place for the brief 3-4 hours between trains.  When I was 14 we moved all the way west to Tacoma Washington  and during those last four summers of my high school yearsI had the amazing opportunity to spend some large chunks of quality time - from 3 weeks to 1 1/2 months - each summer working for my grandfather on the ranch.  I learned to herd castrate and dehorn cattle, irrigate the hayfields, build and fix barbwire fence, maintain the machinery, paint, fish, hike, etc.

The days working in the heart of the beautiful Shields River Valley with stunning views of the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains to the south, Crazy Mountains to the east and Bridger Mountains to the west drilled deep into my heart and soul a profound appreciation for bedrock values of life:: God, work, family, water, animals, weather and nature. 

Having shared that bit of my personal-family background you’re probably scratching your head wondering about the title for this entry, "Numerical Perspectives Along US 89".  Going forward, I plan on sharing bits and pieces of what may appear to be a never-ending numerical journey, but to receive this information you need to set aside a few preconceived ideas.   First, notions of "chance" and "luck" need to be set aside for a moment.  In their place we are going to begin to embrace the core-kernel of what I will refer to as this “Big Sky Idea” – ie. there is a perfectly ordered Divine Providence that governs the affairs of mankind and the universe in ways that are both musical and numerical in nature.  If you remain open about this idea you will be thrilled to receive and share with experiences from your own daily life that the root of this Divine Providence is a wonderfully fun and positive correspondence that involves life, music and numbers. 

This is going to be a fun journey, but I must admit that trying to share these insights with others has been a challenge.  I will try to make this interesting and fun, but I must also ask for your patience.  Please note that the numerical observations that I share are not isolated or limited to me.   There are numbers that manifest in our world that involve everyone in ways that transcend any attempt by "me" or "you" to claim some special place or ability of discernment.

I will only share bits and pieces of these revelations on this website.  I have shared some of these writings on other blogs and websites and forums, but I will try to keep the focus of what I share on this site limited to my personal experiences in the land the spreads in the general vicinity of US 89. 

Before I  layout the fundamentals of what makes US 89 so numerically amazing I want to share a simple note as follows:

Note: I will not get into the numerical details of the "Divine Birth Proof" – ie. that our Lord was born on August 11th in 6 BC (see reference in #1 below) - on this site.  For those  details you can read-study the unpublished 1400+ page "Book Of Anglion" by Dean Fagerstrom who personally taught me this "Divine Science of Numerical Correspondences" during a 2 1/2 year period beginning on March 29, 2001.  Back in 2002 I helped Dean publish a small website which outlines some of the basics behind this divine science.  Dean has had some amazing things happen to him which you can read about over at this link.

The basic correspondence between numbers and letters used in this divine science applies to the english language - which is referred to in Dean's works as "the language of the Divine Providence" - is called "reduced gematria" and works as follows:

123456789 = abcdefghi

123456789 = jklmnopqr

12345678 = stuvwxyz

Why is US Route 89 so numerically-musically special to me?  Here are some of the facts which are reduced to prime numbers which support this gloriously golden road that’s bathed in the light of our Lord’s Sun as follows:

1) 89 is the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4 which is the astrological sign for the Divine Birth month (August) whose ruling planet is the Sun and which corresponds to the Human Heart.   There’s a very special number in the prime number system which proclaims and celebrates the Divine Birthmonth of our Lord as follows:

2389 is the Leo (356th) prime number – including one (1) in the count

2389 is composed of two prime numbers, 23 and 89.  23 corresponds to I (9) Am (14) = 23 prime which was/is our Lord’s original name and title given to Moses on Mt. Sinai – ie. “I Am….the Lord thy God…” Exodus 20:2.  And as outlined above, 89 is the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4.  So when you see 2389 it’s as if the universe of the Divine Providence is singing “I Am Leo!!”

2) Montana - the northernmost state for US 89 - became the 41st state to enter our union on November 8, 1889 which was/is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th - which is the date that Dean Fagerstrom's documents as the Divine Birthdate as the numerical proof of in his "Book Of Anglion"

My wife - her name is Maribeth - was born on this same date in the year 1959, 89 days form my 2nd birthday, 2/5, (I was born in 1958) and 641 days from the day I was born.  641 is the prime of the word Rose (9615) = 641 prime X 15. 

As you will see going forward, there's a very powerful "Marian Correspondence" with the number 89.  In Dean Fagerstrom's research-writings he documents that November 8th in the year 7 BC was the actual "Divine Conception Day" of our Lord God Jesus Christ.   The mo/day 11/08 (1108) factors into 277 prime X 4 which is the prime of this phrase "Divine Love" as follows: 

Divine (494955) Love (3645) = 498600 = 277 prime X 1800

When you add 277 “Divine Love” prime days to November 8th in the year prior to a leap-year you will always arrive at August 11th, the Divine Birth date, in the following year.

Anytime you add/subtract 641 "Prime of Rose (9615)" days from any day on the calendar you will move backward/forward along the calendar 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days.

41 is a very important prime number which corresponds to the phrase "I Am the light of the world" John 8:12 as follows:

I (9) Am (14) the (285) Light (39782) of (66) the (285) World (56934) = 97375 = 41 prime X 2375

This “Marian Correspondence” with US Route 89 can be seen in the first 30 miles just south of the Canadian border.  I have never visited St. Mary, Montana, but it’s located on US Route 89 some 28-29 miles south of the Montana-Canadian border.  St. Mary, Montana and US 89 is where the “Going To The Sun Road” begins to head west through the entire length of Glacier National Park.  The coordinates for St. Mary, MT are 48° 44′ 36.96″ N, 113° 25′ 42.24″ W. 

113° W (113) is a prime number that corresponds to I (9) Am (14) One (655) = 678 = 113 prime X 6

When you subtract 48° N from 113° W you will come to 65 which corresponds to the English word ON (65).  The name “Going To The Sun Road” certainly evokes the concept of being “one with the light of the sun” as one drives westward through Glacier National Park.

Mary (4197) = 1399 prime X 3

When you subtract 89 “Prime of Leo (356)” from 1399 “Prime of Mary (4197)” you have 1310 which factors into 131 which is the prime of the word ONE (655) = 131 prime  X 5.   In effect, two (2) X ONE (655) = 1310 – as in “two as one”, etc. 

113° W where US Route 89 begins is EXACTLY 24° W of 89° W which is bisects the “Land of Lincoln” (Illinois).  24 is composed of 23 “I (9) Am (14)” plus one (1) – as if to confirm/say/celebrate “I Am One!”

3) Back to the 41 “I Am the Light of the World” prime received above……

Here in the 41st latitude (Chicago) over Lake Michigan - where we live - the sun rises at 5:55 am on August 11th, the Divine Birthdate of our Lord.  5:55 am is the beginning of the Leo (356th) minute of the New (555) Day. 

4) Each year "The Leo (356th) Day" is always the Winter Solstice which is the day that the sun STOPS declining in the sky and "stands still" for two days before rising one degree in the northern hemisphere on Christmas Eve.

5) US 89 runs through the Shields River Valley on the western slope of the Crazy Mountains in south-central (Park County) Montana while US 191 runs on the eastern slope of the same mountains.   89 is the prime of Leo (356) and 191 is the prime of God (764) as follows:

Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4

God (764) = 191 prime X 4

6) US Route 89 and US Route 191 come together along a 7 mile stretch of Interstate 90 from Exit 340 - where US 89 intersects with I-90 - and to Exit 333 which is located right in the heart of Livingston, Montana (the gateway to Paradice Valley and the northern entrance to Yellowstone Park).  333 is 23 “I (9) Am (14)” from Leo (356)  so at the entrance to Paradice Valley mile-Exit 333 – where US 89 and US 191 go their separate ways – seems to be preparing us to receive the phrase “I Am Leo/God”.

US 191 continues westward - sharing I-90's roadbed - until it heads south from Bozeman and then east were it heads into West Yellowstone which is the northwest entrance to Yellowstone National Park.  

US 89 and US 191 - representing the prime of Leo (356) and God (764) - come together as one road that resembles a "Figure Eight" – corresponding to the 8th month of August - - inside Yellowstone National Park.  Yellowstone is where the caldera of hot magma sourced from the heart-center of the earth rises to within a short distance of the surface of the earth which powers all the geysers, steam, hot springs, etc.

7) As seen above, two of the mountain ranges that are involved in bringing together US 89 and US 191 are the Crazy Mountains and the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains.

If you ever visit the Big Sky Country (Montana) you will have been urged to experience one of the most beautiful stretches of highway in America called the "Beartooth Highway" which rises some 3000+ feet south from Red Lodge MT into the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains

Wikipedia wrote:

The Beartooth Highway is an All-American Road that has been called "the most beautiful drive in America," by late CBS correspondent Charles Kuralt.[1] Due to heavy snowfall at the top, the pass is usually open each year only from Memorial Day in late May through Labor Day in September.

The Beartooth Highway is the section of U.S. Highway 212 between Red Lodge, Montana and Cooke City, Montana. It traces a series of steep zigzags and switchbacks, along the Montana-Wyoming border to the 10,947 ft (3,337 m) high Beartooth Pass. The approximate elevation rise is from 5,200 ft (1,600 m) to 8,000 ft (2,400 m) in 12 mi (19 km) in the most daring landscapes.

About the Crazy Mountains Wikipedia wrote:

Spanning a distance of 40 miles (64 km), the Crazy Mountains are located between the Musselshell and Yellowstone rivers. The highest peak is Crazy Peak at 11,214 feet (3,418 m). Rising over 7,000 feet (2,130 m) above the Great plains to the east, the Crazies dominate their surroundings and are plainly visible just north of Interstate 90.

Let's examine the prime of two significant points:

Beartooth Pass elevation: 10947 feet = 89 "Prime of Leo (356)"  X 123

Crazy Peak elevation: 11214 feet = 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" X 126

The two elevations are separated by 267 feet which is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" feet from Leo (356).

8) The matriarch of our family, Dorothea Evers Wolfe, was born and raised in Denton Montana on the Evers family ranch that was originally homesteaded in the 1880’s.  Dorothea was born on 19070111 and she passed/ascended on 19961213 at the golden-leonic age of 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" years old.

9) My family lives in Evanston, Illinois which is where Northwestern University is located.   I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Northwestern University for on very first day that my mother arrived on campus (9/10/48) as a junior college transfer student (from Colorado Women’s College in Denver, CO) she met my father on a blind date.  My father – a WWII veteran 3 years older - was smitten and would not leave my future mom alone from that day forward.   They were married on June 29, 1951. 

The founders of Northwestern University purchased 379 acres of land (formerly called Foster Farm) along the shores of Lake Michigan 12-13 miles north of downtown Chicago in what would become The City of Evanston, Illinois.  The date of this transaction was August 11th (the Divine Birthdate) in the year 1853.   I have held the the original warranty deed of this transaction and have a signed and sealed copy of it in our basement.  

379 is a prime number which is 23 “I (9) Am (14)” from Leo (356).   The 89th longitude north-south runs right through the heart of this “Land of Lincoln” (Illinois) where Ronald Regan (40th President of the united states) and Barack H. Obama (44th President) hail from. 

10) US Route 89 ends in Nogales, AZ and US Route 191 ends in Douglas, AZ.  Remember, 89 is the prime of Leo (356) and 191 is the prime of God (764) as seen above.   Let’s examine the prime terminus values for “Nogales” and “Douglas” as follows:

Nogales (5671351) versus Douglas (4637311) = 1034040 = 1231 prime X 840

1231 prime consists of 23 “I (9) Am (14)” prime nestled between two ones (1s) as if to confirm the 113° W Longitude beginning of US Route 89.   Remember also that Yellowstone Park was where US 89 and US 191 became “one road”.   The coordinates for Yellowstone National Park are 44° 36′ 0″ N, 110° 30′ 0″ W which is roughly the same longitude as Nogales, AZ where US Route 89 ends.  The 44° N Longitude of Yellowstone National Park  mirrors the fact that 191 is the 44th prime number from/including one (1).

1231 prime also corresponds to the “end” of another road in the form of our yearly calendar for 12/31 is the last day of each year, etc.

There’s really no beginning or end to these numerical-mathematical examples.  They are all rooted in the simple observation of real things that happen in our daily lives.  There is nothing here that implies some special power or insight from any individual, city, town or thing.   The simple bottom line is that there’s a never-ending series of numerical-musical correspondences between everyone and everything which receives, shares and glorifies the Divine Providence of our Lord throughout all time for all eternity

That’s enough for now. 

 Peace and God Bless,
