Then there is another beast out of the earth (out of the green quadrant of 'as a man's face'), which had 2 horns like a L-am-b (45 degrees + 45 degrees = 90 as an 'L' of L-am-b) and which spoke as a dragon. This second beast ('as an eagle flying' quadrant 'e') excersizeth all the power of the 1st beast before him (quadrant 'd'). This 2nd beast causes all to worship the 1st beast whose deadly wound was healed. This second beast causeth fire to come down from heaven in the sight of men. This second beast deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles he had power to do in the sight of the first beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth that they should make an image to the 1st beast, which had the wound by a S-word and did live. This second beast had power to give life unto the image of the first beast, that the image of this first beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the 1st beast should be killed.
This second beast causeth all both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six (666).'www' looks like 3 threes on their sides. So, 3 doubled = 6 because 'w' says 'double you' to the 3's. So, there you have 666. Also 6x6x6=216 which is the number of years per king/toe/horn. Also, 1x9x4x6=216. See who is born in 1946.
We are approaching the day when we will need a computer or I-phone or the world-wide-web (www) to be able to buy or sell. It will be a cashless society. People will use their fingerprint or eye recognition technology only. Later in Rev. 14:8-12 it says that those who worship this beast (and become part of this system of using this way of buying or selling) will drink the wrath of GOD's fury, which will be poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for those who receive the mark of its name. In Rev. 14:8 it says that 'Babylon the Great' will fall. I believe that the 7 segments of time periods fall giving rise to the 8 periods of time.
