> Do you have any thoughts on who, or what, the 666 that is described in the Bible, refers to? And, the mark of the animal?

Jamal,
You wrote,[...who, what...666...mark...?]
Jamal,
I can tie in all of what we have been discussing concerning the Lake of Fire, hell, and the original topic that was [...what the bible says or doesn't say about suicide...].
The book called Revelation is a book penned by a Jew that was intended for at least Jewish readers so that the symbolism in the book could possibly be recognizable by Jews from their teachings from their sacred writings. As a Jew, I understand the symbols and could tell you of the meanings of the symbols from a Jew's perspective.
In your wanting to know about [...his mark will be 666...], a Jew could understand that in light of the Jew's understanding of that the letters in the Hebrew alphabet are given numbers. Numbers also denote meanings in the Hebrew. The number 1 means {Union}...4 means {Creation}...6 means {man as only flesh, [carnal man]}...7 means {perfection or completness} { creation in 7 days}...13 means {rebellion or sin}...33 is a {promise}...144 I will explain later as it is used in the book called Revelation. There are many more.
With this understanding, Jews could know what the 666 symbol could be. There are also verses from the Jew's scriptures that could also lead to an understanding. In the book called Deuteronomy, in chapter 29 verse 29, we read;
[...the secret things belong to God; those things revealed belong to us...]
