its easy to tell who doesn’t have the mark. they are being deplatformed, demonetized, fired and their bank accounts taken or frozen.
also, the number itself is anomalous. it uses the obsolete word for a mark stigma - for the last number, six. the word for six is hex.
stigma is "a mark, incised or punched to show ownership, usually in the sign of an X.
i think that he is right about the number itself meaning much. and like someone pointed out, some of the earliest texts have 616 instead. it is considered a scribe error. it still has "stigma" for the six, which is where the real juice is.
