Meaning in Numbers

Does a palindrome have "meaning" beyond the standard meaning of its words? Or its numbers, in the case of the recent palindromic date, February 20, 2002. At precisely 8:02 pm on that date, a palindrome "occurred"--we stood at the moment 20:02, 20/02, 2002 (time, date and year.) For some, this had so much significance that they chose to mark the moment by getting married. To others, the moment ticked by without notice. Again I ask myself--where does meaning happen, "out there" or "in here"?
