Would it be considered a form of wit to perform an action (like texting, knocking on a bedroom door, using the bathroom, etc) at a specific time? Times like: 1:45, 5:02, 11:35 (or the inverses of these numbers). Does anyone else find that numbers can have a meaning? Especially when it's related to something in pop culture, like 42, the meaning of life, or 007, license to kill. Furthermore, some numbers sound like parts of words, like the number 8 sort of sounds like the word "Hate", it also sounds exactly like the word "Ate". One more example is the number 9, which is a lot like the German word for "No" ("Nein").

Would it be far fetched to think people try to communicate something by doing this? Same goes for how someone decides to dress, what they wear for the day (what it may resemble).


Culture does assign meaning to numbers. Then, if you think about stuff like religion it gets even more intense.
7, 3, 2, 1, 5, 10, 12, 24, 13, 17...
They are all more than just numbers to us at this point. I'm not sure about the assonance part, at least personally I haven't noticed it much (except on the internet with stuff like "m8" or 1337)
I don't think most people will perform actions at a specific times in order to communicate something. That sounds like something from a spy movie
But numbers, and our feelings for them is something fascinating if you think about it. My little brother assigns a color to each number
