So what do you think this mysterious phrase The Seventh Wave actually means in relation to the ocean and love and whatever else its obviously seems to be?

During a scene from this 1957 movie The Seventh Wave aka Abandon Ship at 1:23:25 one of the survivors adrift upon the ocean says...

Quote: "Last night, that big sea, that one that busted right over us, that was the Seventh Wave"



Quote: "They drove to fifty five secret street, they made love and by the Seventh Wave, she knew she had a problem"



Quote: "But I might just swim out on the waves tonight and lay right down and drown and love is waves away, we are waves away, love is waves away, Seven Waves away"



Quote: "There is no deeper wave than this, listen to me girl, there is a deeper wave than this, nothing will withstand, i say love is the Seventh Wave"

Did some sailing in my childhood/teens.
I do remember the older guys talking about every 7th wave being bigger
than the rest, whenever the sea was getting rough.

Hmmm? so as far as The Seventh Wave goes as implied within the lyrics of the songs posted above and below...

The Seventh Wave, perhaps meaning, by The Seventh Orgasm, love has arrived?!

But why seven and why not one or five or three or nine? > http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/show...hp?t=80828

I think the 7th wave may mean another definition for an epiphany which has finally washed over you that makes you realize you can't really can't control anything, so you should just be grateful to be alive and make the best of it that you possibly can.

Quote:Sing the song that tell it
Praise the man that sells it
You're alive, you might as well be glad

... Providing the soul
... Revealing the heart
... Surviving the life

I did not watch the move Abandon Ship , and cannot say what the phrase really meant, but; the term is described very clear in the movie Papillon (1973);

Papillon is a prisoner moved to solitary confinement on Devil's Island.
In an attempt to escape the prison island, Papillon from a high cliff observes that every seventh wave that comes into a small harbor rebounds from the rocks and is powerful enough to carry him out to sea.

At the end of the movie a narrator states that it was a true story and Papillon lived the rest of his life in freedom.

Yes, the force or event which will allow one to escape or become free.

In the movie The Seventh Wave from 1957 it was the Seventh Wave that swamped their boat which was certainly not giving the traumatized survivors any Freedom but a living hell adrift and lost upon the ocean...

Even though Papillon from 1973 which i have seen like twice the Seventh Wave does (supposedly) eventually carry him away from his island prison in reality Freedom doesnt have anything to do with Seventh Waves but just a word to sometimes attach to it because any waves 1 or 2 or 5 or 7 or 9 can mean different things to different people at different times during different situations...

Oh and by the way considering the fact that the ocean is covered by countless endless waves all the time everywhere so when and where exactly is someone suppose to start counting till the seventh wave when anyone of them could be a Seventh Wave or a Fifth Wave or a Third Wave or whatever number wave?

Oh wow like now this is becoming even more mysterious and confusing...

Because as far as the ocean and surfing goes it appears to be the Ninth Wave and not the Seventh that matters...

But think about considering the fact that the ocean is covered by countless endless waves all the time everywhere so when and where exactly is someone suppose to start counting till the seventh wave when anyone of them could be a Seventh Wave or a Fifth Wave or a Third Wave or whatever number wave?

Maybe there exists other types of waves like Radio Waves or Light Waves or Sound Waves that have strange Seventh Wave flows and patterns...
