In case you didn’t know, this coming Sunday is Oct. 10, 2010 — or 10/10/10. Which looks neat in your checkbook register, but since no one writes checks anymore, what else does the triple digit mean?
Well, according to one webpage on How to Interpret 10/10/10 aka 10-10-10, “Mathematics 101010 (base two (binary)) equals 42 (base ten). Oddly enough, this is evenly divisible by the number of days in a week (7 (lucky)); and equally oddly, is also evenly divisible by the number 6 (which is generally designated as being unlucky). Both a Ying and Yang situation seem to be incorporated into this date.” Got it?
Now put away your calculator, because there’s more than numerology at work here. Like fun events. Like 10:10:10 Global Peace Gathering & StarGate Portal Opening and the Asheville Zombie Walk.
• Vortex Tours Research Center takes over Pack Square with the 10:10:10 Global Peace Gathering & StarGate Portal Opening from 6-9:30 p.m. Everyone is invited and admission is free. According to a press release, “Pack Square’s famous Vance Obelisk and the quartz deposits beneath Pack Square will magnify deep resonance and connect to the inner planetary crystalline network to magnify the conscious experience of this event. …Master of Ceremonies David Chim will lead us with Sacred Toning.

• On a completely different note, the Ashtoberfest annual Zombie Walk shambles through Asheville on 10/10/10 A.K.A. World Zombie Day. Zombies will gather, leave from and return to Asheville Pizza at 77 Coxe Ave. “after a circuitous route of fun and madness through downtown.” Meet between 5 and 6 p.m. for preliminary events; stay after the walk for the fourth annual Zombie Pub Crawl at select destinations downtown.
Then, on Sunday, Oct. 17, “all day, the Ashtoberfest Film Festival at Firestorm Cafe. We will be premiering Night of the Living Dead Reanimated (a collection of animators have replaced the film action with various types of animation, from stop action to single cell.) and featuring the local horror film by Dave Kabler Wanderlost.”
