14.  2112 does NOT mean 12 minutes past 9!
Actually
The album's front cover, designed by Rush's longtime collaborator Hugh Syme, depicts a clock marked with alchemical symbols instead of numbers. It displays the time as 9:12, which in 24-hour time is 21:12, a reference to the band's fourth studio album, 2112 (1976).

Err..... not sure where you are seeing the astrological symbols???
I see the "collectivist mentality" as depicted by the Red Star of the Solar Federation, which, according to the plot, is a galaxy-wide federation that controls all aspects of life during the year 2112.

On the CA tour, both nights I saw them (Newark, NJ and Brooklyn), the second set started at 9:12PM.

Coincidence?  I think not.   2112 confirmed. :)
Or the show was 12 minutes late starting!! :LMAO:

When you don't post in the Rush Lyrics Game thread because you're not going to be the one to make it 1002 replies instead of 1001 replies.

That's pretty deep! I suppose there might be a hundred different ways to be a Rush fan...but if binary code is a factor? Pfffff. Time to re-watch the Dinner With Rush scene, they just want to have fun :)
It's the thing from The Body Electric.

When you, inspired by your fellow Rush lovers in this thread, start to see countless ways of subtly signalling your everyday environments about your love for Rush and wait to see who's there to signal you back.

I know, I was just commenting on the parameters of fandom and choosing humour over science - but hey, I shouldn't judge :) I love that song, by the way.

When everyone around you thinks you're the biggest Rush fan on the planet.

I know I'm not. Some of you guys, your fandom is impressive. Most impressive. But I am hardcore huge fan - and can hold my own. I know the band and the details as well as anyone  ;)
