Carolyn asked Theresa Linden:

Is there significance to Liberty's number? (Liberty 554-062466-84 of Aldonia) I can't help thinking of the long number sequence on "Lost."

Theresa Linden Yes, thanks for the great question! The first set shows what breeder facility she was born in. The next numbers represent her birthday. And the last numbers show her place in the total number of births allowed that year.
"It was a precise number, determined by teams of scientists and environmentalist who had in mind the amount of resources available for quality of life, the needs of the people, and the amount of damage that the earth would inevitably sustain from our existence."
