"The number 12 is the upside-down hanging man. He's hanging by one leg and he has his legs crossed at the knee. It's a contemplative position...it's and in-between moment of waiting for some spiritual things to come. It's not bondage in the way that someone else binds you. It's self-enforced, and it's not unpleasant. It's sort of a waiting moment. He has this little smile on his face."

- Charles Atlas
