Number 7, with it's anarchistic horizontal stroke through the middle,  that is sometimes used in handwriting in the western world but which is almost never used in computer fonts since it can not be written on a 7 segment digital display.

It therefore represents a protest against the binary societys blind belief in computers.
(The binary number for 7 is 111.)

"   7 Is also the number of completeness and a holy number."
