The mark on the forehead symbolizes an unturnable spirit of the dark priesthood.  This spirit has an air of dark superiority, condescension, and represents stratification within the beast.  Its equivalent in the kingdom of light is a seal on the foreheads of believers representing the common royal priesthood of Christ.  All true Christians walk with an unassumed nobility which the world can misjudge as arrogance.  The difference between the priesthoods is that one is dark and the other is light.  Additionally, in the kingdom of darkness there is a second major grouping: those which are marked on their "right hand."  This group represents the unturnable spirit of gangsterism, i.e. aggressive perversity.  It can manifest simply as attacking others who do not jest with you.  Like the mark on the forehead, the mark on the right hand represents an unturnable lifestyle.  A lifestyle involves a pattern of living which can become a part of us.

The dark priesthood and gangsterism represent the "two faces" of the beast.  These faces have been exported from organized or authoritarian religion to all world institutions.  Organized religion establishes the fundamental pattern for the marks: a clergy and a laiety.  In true Christianity all belong to one royal priesthood. (1 Peter 2)  At the top of organized religion sits the beast, i.e. "the name of the beast" is the Pope.  Organized religion comes from ancient Babylon in which there was a pagan priesthood and the common people.  With their respective marks, the dark priesthood sanctified the rituals and the common people participated in them.  The "priestly consecration" of human blood and flesh sacrifices of the priests of Baal or Nimrod (Jeremiah 19:5, 32:35) today is manifested in the "priestly consecration" of the human blood and flesh (trans- and co-substantiation) in the "communion" of organized religion.  The pagan practice of baptism at the hands of the ancient pagan priests manifiests today among the modern clergy.   Confession to a pagan clergy remains the same today.  Protestants call it "Pastoral counselling."  The priestly edicts of praying to the "queen of heaven" as the Babylonian Semiramis (aka Astarte, Venus, etc) has a significant place today in the guise of "Mary."  The ordinations,  rites, and sacraments performed by the pagan priesthood generally have a mirror image in today's clergy.  The most blatant practice of the pagan priesthood today is the "special authority" which clergy claim to possess over the "lay" in matters of knowledge and practice.   Those who unconvertably subject themselves to this clergy have the "name of the beast."  They do so that they might have a covering for their dark ways.  Among true Christians communion, baptism, confession, etc. are done between common believers who are all priests and ordained by God to minister one to another.  For Christians the word of God (preferably as spiritually translated in English by Tyndale or Geneva) and the Holy Ghost are the only source of authority.  No one has special authority over another (2 Cor 1:24, Galations 5:1, Mark 10:42).

The number of the beast as "666" identifies the pontifex maximus, the high pagan priest, of the Babylonian religion.  In the Babylonian religion, the high priest occupies the office of Nimrod as Saturn.  In the Babylonian language, Saturn is Stur which in the Babylonian number system equals 666.  The pontifex maximus is now the Pope of Rome.  Rome is known anciently as the city of Saturn.  "Lateinos" (Latin speaking man) in Biblical greek numbering is also 666.  The old Babylonian system meets the new Babylonian system through Saturn and Lateinos, the pontifex maximus, the Pope.  The Pope is the visible head of organized religion and the "hidden" head of all those who practice the ancient Babylonian religion of serpent, fire, Satan, pagan, and self worship.  

Those who have the "number of the beast" such as unturnable Satanists or self-worshippers perhaps represents the smallest, though most ancient form of the beast.  Those who have the "name of the beast," as unturnable followers of the religious clergy, i.e. ultimately the Pope, are perhaps the second largest group.  Those who have "the mark," as the unconvertable dark priesthood or gangsterism in world institutions, organizations, etc. are perhaps the largest and fastest growing group today.

Whether conscious of it or not, all three groups have a spiritual head in the Pope whose spiritual head is Satan.

If I remember correctly, it was discovered to be "616" instead of "666". You need to update your post LOL!

Beast's real mark devalued to '616'

Depends on what spirit to which you are looking.  If you prefer the idea of scripture as something which has not necessarily been revealed through the millenniums, i.e. needs to be "rediscovered" through variant manuscripts such as those found in Egypt, then "616" is perhaps as valid as "666."  However, if one believes that the majority of early Christians in the middle east (i.e. the Byzantine tradition) and a later minority in the west (i.e. the Itala tradition through the Leonists - 300 A.D. and their successors through the Waldensians - 1200 A.D.) used the correct biblical text, then "616" is a rediculous manuscript error.  "616" is found in only a few manuscripts - the oldest witness found in Eygpt (P115).  Eygpt is notorious for manuscripts corrupted by gnostic cults and other enemies to the true faith, but provides the basis for the Catholic vulgate translated by Jerome.  Alexandrian (Eygptian) manuscripts can significantly differ one from another relative to byzantine and Itala based texts.  If you like the idea of "secret texts" than you can take your pick on whatever readings you like - beyond the "666" and "616" variant.  I stand by the witness of the early eastern byzantine and western Itala text traditions which have a statistically very high degree of aggreement between extent manuscripts.
