Default I think the # 8 is interesting

This might be stupid but I dont care:

I reading a fascintating novel/epic poem. It challenges one's views of time and eternity and even history itself. It might just be the greatest American fiction book ever written (even better than Moby Dick). Well the author does a huge play on the number 8. It got me thinking maybe the # 8 is special in some way:

8

Place your finger on a # 8 and trace it repeatedly. Notice in a sense this number has no beginning point nor ending point. So I think it could be used as a symbol of God who is Eternity.

Now where the two circles meet in middle place or draw a Cross and make the center of the cross meet where the two circles meet. This could be a symbol of Christ who is both Eternity and human.
