Object found in Milky Way 'unlike anything astronomers have seen'

"The object, first spotted by a student working on his undergraduate thesis, releases a huge burst of radio energy three times every hour.

The pulse comes "every 18min 18sec, like clockwork," said astrophysicist Natasha Hurley-Walker, who led the investigation after the student's discovery, using a telescope in the Western Australian outback known as the Murchison Widefield Array.

While there are other objects in the universe that switch on and off - such as pulsars - Dr Hurley-Walker said 18:18 is a frequency that has never been observed before.

Finding this object was "kind of spooky for an astronomer," she said, "because there is nothing known in the sky that does that."

The researchers are now working to understand what they have found.

Trawling back through years of data, they have been able to establish a few facts: The object is about 4,000 light years from Earth, is incredibly bright and has an extremely strong magnetic field.

But there are still many mysteries to untangle.

"If you do all of the mathematics, you find that they shouldn't have enough power to produce these kind of radio waves every 20 minutes," Dr Hurley-Walker said.

"It just shouldn't be possible."

That's interesting for sure. I've not delved into numerology very much but do find the basic concept rather intriguing. Since the astronomer commented that this object emitting radio waves every 18 minutes and 18 seconds was unique, I played around with those numbers:

18:18 (all digits added) = 18 (all digits added) = 9
18:18 (each number's digits added) = 9:9 (all digits added) = 18 = 9

For comparison,
15:15 = 12 =
3
15:15 = 6:6 = 12 = 3

28:28 = 20 = 2
28:28 = 10:10 = 1:1 = 2

59:59 = 28 = 10 = 1
59:59 = 14:14 = 5:5 = 10 = 1

So it seems this time frequency is associated with the number 9, for which I found this "familiar" interpretation: :-)
"The energy of the number 9 represents great mental and spiritual realizations; the number of the initiation because it marks the end of a phase of spiritual development and the beginning of another higher stage.

It represents completion, but not finality. Think of it more in a cyclical sense; it's about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin, usher in this process of transition or transformation, guiding and empowering us with its wisdom. It absorbs answers from a spiritual source, then delivers them to us in the real world.

It is humanitarian, compassionate, kind, and intent on putting its efforts toward creating the greatest good. Wisdom, strength and greater awareness are the fruits following a good share of hardship."

FWIW just noticed 81, the inverse of 18, is derived by 9x9.

I'm sure there's some "boring" mathematical basis, but 9 is a special number: 9x1=9, 9x2=18 (1+8=9), 9x3=27 (2+7=9), 9x4=36 (3+6=9) . . . 9x8=72 (7+2=9) . . . 9x12=108 (1+0+8=9) . . . 9x6,501=58,509 (5+8+5+0+9=27; 2+7=9).
