And 999 is the same as 666 upside down, which is of course of interest as
well as the number of the beast. And the number 9 (or 6) in Wingdings 3
font, if written in all four 90-degree rotations, looks suspiciously like
the Nazi symbol. (included herein as a graphic, for those who can read it).
Patterns abound!

If the text of Genesis 1:1 had come down to us without the object markers, I
think that Vernon would still have found interesting features. For example,
he might observe what happens if one permutes the digits of 1899.
1998=2x999, and 8991= 9x999, and 999 is a multiple of 37, which interests
him very much. Of course, these two should count as only one feature since
switching the first and fourth digits of any number makes a difference in
value of a multiple of 999.
