Dartboards Again?

"Fans of numerology in The Shining will be happy to note there are 21 possible scores in the black and white sections of the dart board, while there are 42 possible scores in the colored sections of the board.
While some see numerology as the key to opening hidden meanings in the narrative, others see numerology as a trap. Let’s just note that ‘black and white’ is the lower scoring area and ‘color’ the higher scoring.
Danny is first seen wearing the number 42 on a sweat shirt with a basketball-playing Bugs Bunny on its chest, so ‘high scores’ are part of his outlook.
There are 41 sections of black and white on the board, but 42 sections of color.
Danny leaves his father behind in the black and white photograph, to repeat himself over and over again, but Danny moves on the next number, into the full spectrum."
