666 is the Mark of the BEAST

2666?
666 the MARK of The BEAST.

 And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, 
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?  

William Butler Yeats

Bethlehem is in Palestine. The BEAST is there. 
Is Israel the BEAST being born?

CTHULHU?


666 x 4 = 2664 WHICH IS ALMOST 2666 eh so let's round it off

Bolano has doubled 666 and redoubled  giving us the TITLE so much in controversy as to its meaning right now. The Critics and Reviewers are stressed out over this date.

When 666 is tripled then 1998 is the result when Bolano is working against death to finish 2666.
They cannot kill him for this expose because he will be/is dead.
  

Doubled and redoubled is a term Irigaray often uses. Did Bolano read her? I am guessing no but it's just a guess. It could go either way.

THE BOOK FOR WOMEN TO KNOW WELL
Without it you are half asleep. Maybe even more.

2666 is divided into 5 sections.

1. The Part About The Critics.
2. The Part About Amalfitano
3. The Part About Fate
4. The Part About The Crimes
5. The Part About Archimboldi

5 is a Prime Number

PRIME 

PRIMO FIRST PREMIER MOST IMPORTANT .......

Klaus Haas- "No one pays attention to these killings, but the secret of the world is hidden in them." (p. 348)

IN ONE OF HIS MANY NOTES FOR 2666, BOLANO INDICATES THE EXISTENCE IN THE

 WORK OF A "HIDDEN CENTER," CONCEALED BENEATH WHAT MIGHT BE


 CONSIDERED THE NOVEL'S "PHYSICAL CENTER." THERE IS REASON TO THINK THAT


 THIS PHYSICAL CENTER IS THE CITY OF SANTA TERESA, FAITHFUL REFLECTION OF


 CUIDAD JUAREZ, ON THE MEXICAN-US BORDER. THERE THE FIVE PARTS OF THE


 NOVEL ULTIMATELY CONVERGE; THERE THE CRIMES ARE COMMITTED THAT


 COMPRISE ITS SPECTACULAR BACKDROP (AND THAT ARE SAID BY ONE OF THE


 NOVEL'S CHARACTERS TO CONTAIN "THE SECRET OF THE WORLD"


T.S. Eliot in Sweeney Agonistes:

Any man has to, needs to, wants to
Once in a lifetime, do a girl in.

The "Gravitational Law" of 1666 (Newton) is pulling inexorably toward the center of the world.
The Secret of the World The Crimes are telling us?

What is that SECRET?

The SECRET is the PRIME SECRET of Our World.
Forget about the rest of the baggage.

That is what Irigaray is telling us and Bolano is graphically illustrating for us in fiction.

The mirroring? Is the mirror convex? Maybe it is concave? Maybe two mirrors facing each other where you are not in either one of them when you stand between them?
Plato's Cave is coming UNDONE!

The SECRET of 2666 is revealed by Irigaray

Irigaray's convoluted deconstruction of Freud and Plato is told in fiction by Bolano. Now we can't complain that we don't understand because Irigaray is too difficult for us to read.
Bolano makes her crystal clear.


Bolano indicates the existence in the work of a "hidden center," concealed beneath what might be considered the novel's "physical center." There is reason to think that this physical center is the city of Santa Teresa, faithful reflection of Ciudad Juarez, on the Mexican-U.S. border. 

There the five parts of the novel ultimately converge; there the crimes are committed that comprise its spectacular backdrop (and that are said by one of the novel's characters to contain "the secret of the world"). As for the "hidden center"...might it not represent 2666 itself, the date upon which the whole novel rests? (p.896)

No the hidden center is not the number 2666 in my reading of 2666.
