Robert Burns

Continuing on from my previous post, note the following excerpt:
  • Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796
There are a number of notable persons found on Robert Burns wiki page and I took the time to list them all (including Robert Burns), as well as providing each birth/death date at the bottom of this post. These are the figures regarding their birth/death dates: 8 in January; 8 in April; 6 in September; 6  in August; 6 in February; 5 in July;  5 in October; 4 in May; 4 in June; 4 in March; 3 in November; 3 in December. What strikes me as most meaningful, is that over the last 3 days of this particular series of posts, the major clusters surrounding date sequences evolved for the months of: January, April, September, and August, the 4 months in this investigation as having the most. The clusters beginning with my first post of April 4, Hitting the Mark, until now and including the dates at the bottom of this post, are now as follows:
  • "January 1, _3(x2),.., 6(x2), 7(x2)8, 9, _, 11,  ....., 15, 16, _, _, 19, _, 21, _, 23, _, 25(x2), _, 27(x2) _, _, 30(x3), 31/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster
