Hey! So I am new here to uboachan. I have loved .Flow for a while now, and one of the things that really gets me is that I don't see a lot of theories concerning the numbers on the walls in the apartments. I posted something on the wikidot page:http://dotflow.wikidot.com/forum/t-1171372/significance-of-the-numbers-on-the-apartment-walls
But I mean, no one has posted any thoughts as of yet. I think these numbers have some sort of significance to Sabi and things that have happened to her. Now, with the wall glitch event with the number 97920, I saw a theory on youtube that maybe it's a date. Rearranged, it's: September 20th, 1997
But what about the other numbers? 3792 and 4231?
Now, if I wanted to force a theory into what these numbers could mean, concerning the events that happen in the alley where the cones are:
3792 could be a code. We also see this number split apart as well (37 and 92). We see what looks to be a pregnant woman burning something (3 of them). We see the chainsaw maid. We also see someone running and a kaibutsu killing someone.
So again, if I'm to force a theory:
Sabi finds out after being pulled into that building and being chased, finally being held against her will by gun-point and raped, that her own mother might've been tortured by three of the men, making one of them in her mind her father. The 3 red women represent a dark Sabi's mother burning the memory from her and making it so Sabi would never know.
A shaken, scared Sabi is defenseless and bloody outside the room in the alley and the chainsaw maid finds her. (whether or not you believe the chainsaw maid is good, I think it's safe to say that she might still be a possible care-giver)
A kaibutsu following Sabi (perhaps the one who was at the sugar bar) chased one of the men and killed another. That could be 2 deaths there.
So 3 could be the 3 men that in Sabi's mind, might have been her father. 7 men actually raped her. 9 gave chase after she ran (and so she could've hit one in order to run). That bar kaibutsu killed 2 of the men.
Then maybe 4231 is a number representing the place, and maybe the other number is the date of her not only discovering her origins, but the night she was raped and possibly roped into prostitution? If 4231 is the location: 4 (city district) 23 (block number) 1 (building number)
4231 is always written in black, directly related to the men.
3792 is always in orange, directly related to things that happened to Sabisuki.
Meh, now, on another hand, I am just forcing theories to fit at this point because I have NO idea how to fit in these numbers. I was thinking that maybe it's a code, but it doesn't really work either. Is it a number of steps to a place in which something tragic happened? I doubt we can say these two sets of numbers are also dates. Is it a code in which like, 4231, if you take the other number and rearrange each number to fit this pattern, it means something? Rather complex, to be honest. I also don't think it's a price for anything either.
Also.. I should mention, in this pic, I can't remember, but doesn't Sabi encounter the viscera event here as well (after going going up to the puking face)? And if so, could it be that whatever caused her to have that traumatic vision in her mind, wouldn't it be somehow linked to these numbers shown around her? That orange blob with the smiley, I couldn't help but think it looks more like an erect penis…
Anyways, what are all of your thoughts? I really am curious about this!
