Three strikes, three primary colors, three goals for a hat trick, three meals a day, the Holy Trinity– do things in our lives really manifest in threes, or are these observations just ways for our brains to simplify and group complex information? On the Liveline with Ed and Jen is Michael Eck, creator of the Book of Threes. (6/30)
As author, administrator and . . . I forget the third, of The Book of Threes at threes.com, I recently did three, that’s right . . ., three interviews on celebrity deaths in threes. Mostly people are interested in why deaths occur in threes.
After these interviews I came to the conclusion that putting deaths into a threeness is the way we master our own mortality. We reflect on these deaths and create a memory by clustering concepts into threes. It gives us a chance to complete our relationship with our celebrities and move on.
