365 Pin Code Profile of Bestselling Author Sir Terry Pratchett
Terence David John Pratchett (Terry Pratchett) was born on the 28th of April 1948 in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. He had his first story published when he was just thirteen, and after leaving school at seventeen to become a journalist he continued writing, publishing his first novel, The Carpet People, in 1971 and going on to produce the phenomenally successful Discworld series as well as numerous other books, winning many awards and becoming the UK’s bestselling author. He died in March 2015 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
In this research article we unpack the numerology and life path of Sir Terry Pratchett, linking key events along his life path to our unique lines of annual experiential code (constructed from complex 4D modelling of this date of birth and full birth name; all data is tabled below). As we do this, you will be astonished to discover that none of these significant events were random life-time-line experiences; they were in fact hardcoded into his Strategic Applied Numerology. Therefore, when it was to be his “moment in time” it summarily happened for him, exactly as per his bespoke numerical matrix laid down from the very day of his birth.
This chart is Sir Terry’s 365 Pin Code birth chart, as compiled for the year 2015 (a number 8 universal energy year) when he tragically passed away. The important numbers for you to know going forward, are that he has a Number 9 Life Path (see the 9 above circled in red) and that he has a Number 9 Shadow (emotional) Life Path (see the 9 above circled in black). We will refer to these two numbers 9’s shortly when we carefully unpack his year-on-year experiences using nothing but numbers, his unique numbers!
Sir Terry Pratchett had the master number 22 in his birth chart
Sir Terry was born in 1948 (i.e. his World / Career Number), which reduces down to the master number 22, this being the number of The Master Builder (Sir Richard Branson has a number 22 life path, 18.07.1950 = 18+7+1950 = 1975 = 1+9+7+5 = 22; Sir David Attenborough has a number 22 life path, 08.05.1926 = 8+5+1926 = 1939 = 1+9+3+9 = 22). This is an incredibly powerful number to have coded into your birth chart as it means you carry within you the potential to build something absolutely massive, and to do this in a way which really benefits humanity and leaves a lasting legacy. Being born on the 28th (DD) means he had the Number 1 Energy (the leader, the innovator, the discover, the one who takes risks and walks the path less trodden) firmly coded into his personal energy and lead he did, from the very front.

Let’s link Sir Terry’s key life events to his 365 Pin Code annual lines of code above
1968: Sir Terry interviewed a local publisher, Peter Bander van Duren, for the newspaper and happened to mention a book he was working on, based on one of his Children’s Circle stories. Peter passed the manuscript on to his co-director, Colin Smythe. This was the start of a lifelong friendship, with Colin becoming first Terry’s publisher and later his agent. The manuscript in question was The Carpet People, Terry’s first novel. This was also the year when Terry married his wife, Lyn.
Look at the chart data above, the very first line – 1968 is a phenomenal line of code for Sir Terry because all the numbers in that year’s data string are odd (odd numbers always align favourably to the self, even numbers always align favourably to others). The code in play is [YY1968]-11-3-1-[Age20]-11-3-1. The Number eleven brings in a new vision and sets about illuminating a new path for him, the Number 3 talks to a moment in time which powerfully enables communication, creativity, self-expression, imagination etc. (perfect conditions for a writer) and the Number 1 represents a new beginning, the start of something quite different and exciting.
Therefore his 1968 line of code was absolutely coded to call in all the positive change which happened in his life around meeting and interviewing Peter Bander van Duren.
The Carpet People, 1971 – the start of Sir Terry’s Independence (Number 19)
1971: The Carpet People: First published in 1971, this hilarious and wise novel marked the debut of the phenomenal Sir Terry Pratchett. Years later, Sir Terry revised the work, and this special collectable edition includes the updated Text, his original colour and black-and-white illustrations, and an exclusive story—a forerunner to The Carpet People created by the seventeen-year-old nascent writer who would become one of the world’s most beloved storytellers.” “In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet . . . That’s the old story everyone knows and loves. But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples, and there’s a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls—and of two brothers who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.
Again, please look at the above data table and find the year 1971. Do you see that the 1971, 1972 and 1973 are all circled in purple? Excellent. And, do you see how these three years are all linked by the Number 19? The number 19 (a Numerology karmic debt collection number) when honoured, represents something magnificent done by self (the 1) for others (the 9) and represents the highest level of selfless service. Also, 19, reduces down a 1 [19 = 1+9 = 10 = 1+0 = 1] therefore 1971 through to 1973 represents a three year period coded for a massive new beginning to flow in to the world of Sir Terry, and this is exactly what happened, through his book The Carpet People! If you cast your mind back to his birth chart, you will recall that Sir Terry was born on the 28th which reduced down to the number 1. Therefore this 3-yr number 1 experience is very personal for him as it’s an alignment of 1’s and when powerfully charged personal alignments like this happen, life changing events occur.
1979 – Three Mile Island nuclear disaster brings about four-year life path shift
1979: Three Mile Island nuclear disaster in the USA. A few months later, after stints at the Western Daily Press and the Bath Evening Chronicle, Terry moved out of journalism to become press officer for four nuclear power stations with the Central Electricity Generating Board. He cited this as an example of his unerring sense of timing. Note how in our lines of code for Sir Terry, he has a life path related experience (i.e. number 9, blocked off above in red) from 1978 to 1981. Our data lines of bespoke 365 Pin Code therefore line up perfectly with this dramatic 1979 experience, even more proof of how accurate our numerical intelligence is. Now you may understand why people who are serious about creating much more personal and professional success as well as better managing their life path related risk, seek to understand their 365 Pin Code and that’s why our unique value proposition (UVP) is:
You live in a world of information overload. The online world is crammed full of the stuff. Half of it is accurate but totally boring. The other half is inaccurate and utterly useless. 1% has great value, and 1% of the 1% is priceless. 365 Pin Code’s applied strategic numerology services dials you in at tremendous speed to the 1% of the 1%.
Let’s continue with this research as we unpack the numerology and life path of Sir Terry Pratchett…
1983: Sir Terry Pratchett starts Discworld
1983: Terry’s very first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published by Colin Smythe – the start of what would become a phenomenally successful series, 41 books strong and translated all over the world. Transworld Publishers bought the paperback rights to the book and have published the Discworld paperbacks ever since. Victor Gollancz took on the Discworld hardbacks in 1987 – Terry was their first fantasy author – and continued to publish them until 1998, when Transworld took over. Again, please scroll up to the line of code for 1983 and what do you see? 1983 provides him with a highly concentrated [i.e. one year only; 1982 = 15(6), 1983 = 12(2) and 1984 = 15(6)] numerological experience relating to the Number 3 (creativity, imagination, communication, self-expression etc.).
1986: Equal Rites is serialised for radio
1986: The third Discworld novel, Equal Rites, which tapped into emerging ideas about feminism, was serialised for radio on Woman’s Hour. It was the most popular book they had ever broadcast. Ok, now it is very important for you to pause for a moment and internalise the enormity of this event for Sir Terry. This was a game changer. So, lets turn our attention to the line of code in play for him this year. It was: [YY1968]-11-3-1-[Age20]-11-3-1. Where have we seen this line of code before? That’s right, in 1968 when it all started to happen for him through Peter Bander van Duren and The Carpet People. Are you now grasping how from birth, our life has been intelligently coded and repeating lines of code (as identified through our 365 Pin Code 4D Quadratic Predictive Model) bring similar outcomes as we venture along our life path?
The 1990’s were very good to Sir Terry Pratchett
The 1990’s: Terry Pratchett gave up working for the CEGB (Central Electricity Generating Board) to make his living through writing in 1987, after finishing the fourth Discworld novel, Mort. His sales increased quickly and many of his books occupied top places on the best-seller list; he was the UK’s best-selling author of the 1990s. According to The Times, Pratchett was the top-selling and highest earning UK author in 1996. Looking at our lines of code for 1990’s the numbers completely agree with this being a most favourable decade for him and 1996, sees two master numbers linking together, these being master number 22 and master number 11 (see the red blocks in his 1996 line of code) so no wonder it was the year when he was the UK’s bestselling author. Sir Terry was appointed OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Despite initially suspecting it was an elaborate hoax, he did turn up to accept the award. Again, our numbers confirm this because 1998 was coded to be a life path significant year for him…
End of 2007 / 2008 – Sir Terry Pratchett is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
2008: Sir Terry was diagnosed with a rare form of Alzheimer’s, Posterior Cortical Atrophy. He decided to tell the world (December 2007) and began his campaign to raise awareness of the disease, donating a million dollars to Alzheimer’s research the following year. If you refer back to the 2007 and 2008 lines of code for Sir Terry, you will observe that 2008 (blocked off in dark grey) brings about a concentrated number 1 related experience for him. Concentrated because 2007 had as his experiential code 17(8), 2008 had 10(1) and 2009 had 15(6) so the 1 is sandwiched between the 8 and the 6; it is this which allows us to know, using purely his numbers, that 2008 was coded to be a year which would bring about a dramatic personal shift (Born 28th DD; 28//10//1).
On 8 June 2008, news reports indicated that Pratchett had an experience which he described as: “It is just possible that once you have got past all the gods that we have created with big beards and many human traits, just beyond all that, on the other side of physics, there just may be the ordered structure from which everything flows” and “I don’t actually believe in anyone who could have put that in my head”. He went into further detail on Front Row, in which he was asked if this was a shift in his beliefs: “A shift in me in the sense I heard my father talk to me when I was in the garden one day. But I’m absolutely certain that what I heard was my memories of my father. An engram, or something in my head… This is not about God, but somewhere around there is where gods come from.”
In 2009 Sir Terry Pratchett received his Knighthood
Sir Terry was knighted by the Queen for services to literature, although he maintained that his greatest service to literature was to avoid writing any. Our line of code for 2009 reveals a double 6 (see the red block) emotional experience for Sir Terry. The number 6 is centred within relationships, service, responsibility, matters of the heart, sense of community etc. Therefore it is perfectly fitting that the year he received his knighthood should have a double 6 emotional experience coded for him – a moment along his life path, when because his life had been well lived and his birth gifts well respected and intelligently utilised, he would receive tremendous recognition.
2015 – Sir Terry exits this world leaving behind a beautiful and magical legacy
2015: Sir Terry died peacefully at home in Wiltshire, with his family around him and his pet cat asleep on his bed. He had finished one final Discworld novel, The Shepherd’s Crown, a few months earlier.
Conclusion – thank you Sir Terry Pratchett
We hope that you have enjoyed this 365 Pin Code numerology research experience during which endeavoured, using only numbers and mathematically created intelligent lines derived from modelling his full birth name and date of birth, to unpack the numerology and life path of Sir Terry Pratchett. We also hope that this research has opened a portal through which might gain a greater understanding of life and that events in lives are not nearly as random as we might like to believe they are, that from birth, there exists an intelligent experiential numerically coded matrix which we will experience. Begs interesting questions and deliberations around freewill…
