10011001 is the sum of the first 10001 integers and is also the sum of the first five positive factorials, 1! + 10! + 11! + 100! + 101!.

Also, the Gospel of John includes the narrative of the miraculous catch of 10011001 fish as the third appearance of Jesus after his resurrection. The precision of the number of fish in this narrative has long been considered peculiar, and many scholars, throughout history, have argued that 10011001 has some deeper significance.
