3 + 4 = 7
"...We do these things because we are quite nerdy and also because we hope to inject meaning wherever and whenever we are able."David Crowder, 2011
Easter eggs
7
David Crowder*Band, Crowder, and The Digital Age like to hide the numbers 3, and 4, and 7 in their albums. For DC*B, the number 3 represents humanity or depravity, while 4 represents God or divinity. 7 represents perfection. In the words of David Crowder: "... we have been toying with the number 7 since we started this dc*b thing, the reason being – we have viewed art as this space where the human and the divine collide, “3” being representative of the divine, “4” being representative of the earthly."

You Alone
Pieces of the song You Alone were included as hidden tracks in the first three DCB albums: Can You Hear Us, Illuminate, and A Collision. The last third of the song was on the latter half of the final track of Can You Hear Us?. In the liner notes of Illuminate, at the bottom underneath the lyrics for Stars, or if you put the Illuminate disc into your computer, and go to the following location: [Disc drive, i.e., D:]/reason/readme, there is a url which contained the second third. On A Collision, there was a url which contained the first part hidden on the secondtolast page of the liner notes. After a while, they put the entire song together at the A Collision link. Neither page is readily available on the internet anymore. Album Parallels
Each DC*B album is related to another, like this: The 1st Album, Can You Hear Us?, is related to the 4th album Remedy. The 2nd album, Illuminate, is related to the 5th album, Church Music. The 3rd album, A Collision, is related to the 6th album, Give Us Rest. This is intended to be in concordance with the fact that in creation, the 1st day is related to the 4th day, in that the 1st day is "let there be light", and on the 4th, the sun, moon and stars were created. For more on the parallels, check out the Parallels page. Good Readers
At the end of the "Thank You" section of the liner notes on every DCB fulllength album except for Give Us Rest, there is a sentence thanking the reader for reading the "Thank You" section, following which is a url. The good readers would be various things like certificates to a meet & greet with the band, exclusive songs, videos, etc. None of the pages are on the internet anymore. 
Mysteries
The Asterisk
David Crowder*Band has always been styled with an Asterisk after the words David Crowder. The band has never revealed the significance of it. In a Rockumentary, Dave joked that it stood for "David Crowder* *is about to go insane because Jack Parker continually tries to sabotage the work of the rest of the* Band" TDA's sound studio is also titled "Asterisk Sound", and sometimes The Digital Age is abbreviated as TD*A. The Golden Ratio

Give Us Rest tiles
The liner notes for the album Give Us Rest fold out into nine different images, 5 of them representing the other DC*B albums, 2 of them representing the preDCB albums, 1 which is a 7, and one which is simply the album's front cover. There is some debate over if the ordering of them is significant, what they represent, etc. The band also released a video showing the tiles (pictured below), and some believe there is also significance in the ordering of them in the video. If you have any ideas surrounding this, contact me. 
Give Us Rest Equations
There are several equations on the front cover of Give Us Rest. Here they are and what they mean:

There are several equations on the front cover of Give Us Rest. Here they are and what they mean:
 1.66 x10^27kg = One atomic mass unit.
 1 cm^1 = 3.52 × 10^41 kg = Inverse Compton wavelength; the mass of a very small particle may be identified with its inverse Compton wavelength
 F = G*m1m2/r2 = Law of Universal Gravitation. There is a line coming from the G which points to the equation 6.67 x 10^11 kg ^1 m^3 s^2; that is equal to the gravitational constant G.
 W = mg is the equation for weight, the line coming from the g points to 9.81 ms^2, which is what g equals on earth, i.e., our weight on earth, or the earth pulling at our feet (in "The Lark Ascending" from A Collision, Dave says, "...but the ground pulls at my feet.")
 The title "A Requiem Mass in C" could be a pun, as rest, mass, and C are all scientific terms. It could represent a body of mass at rest in C, i.e., the speed of light, possibly referring to someone who has died, and is now a mass at rest, but their soul is moving up to the source of infinite light, or God.
 "The hummingbird on the front cover likely represents infinity or eternity, as the hummingbird commonly has due to the fact that its wings move in the shape of an infinity symbol.
 "Humming birds can hover or fly forwards and backwards, and is the only bird that can do this. Could be symbolic of transcending time and space.
they, the hummingbirds, expend lots of energy to do this, the hovering and transcending, so they get tired. they can fall into such a deep sleep that the fall upside down on a branch and cannot be awakened until the morning sun shines on them and warms their bodies."  The Lark Ascending and The Conversation preceding it from A Collision may tie into this. The Lark Ascending may represent a person ascending to heaven.
youaremyjoy came up with a fascinating explanation:
"I think we are dealing w/ a transition here. From Newtonian Physics, constant mass as a particle with gravitation being a "force"; to relativity/quantum mechanics where we have the waveparticle duality (all particles exhibit wave and particle like behavior). Wave like behavior is used to describe light (wavelength).
So for Newtonian physics the velocity at which a mass can travel is minute compared to the speed of light, so that as the velocity increases the increase in mass is negligible.
But, with relativity (E=mc^2) as the velocity of a mass approaches the speed of light, the mass approaches..... infinity.
So we have invariant mass, or "rest mass", in the equation E=mc^2. E being energy, m being mass and c being the speed of light. But if we bring wavelength, (lambda), we need the Planck constant, h, to come up with the the PlanckEinstein equation...E=(hc)/(lambda). Where (lambda)v = c, and v being frequency.
So, with general relativity as a mass moves away from the center of a gravitation field its velocity increases, or if it is light its frequency increases.
So we have a mass escaping "gravity" to reach infinite mass (or become light)."
