The number 2016 is special and sacred because it is part of a sequence found all over the cosmos. This sequence is a series of doubles : 27, 54, 108, 216, 432, 864, etc.
For all these numbers, adding their digits equals 9 :
2+7 = 5+4 = 1+0+8 = 9, etc
Here are a few examples of how these numbers show up everywhere :
Saturn orbital period : 10,800 day
Venus orbital distance : 108 million km
Earth orbital velocity : 108,000 km/hour
Sun’s diameter is approximately 108 times the Earth diameter
Earth distance from the Sun : 108 solar diameters
Moon distance from the Earth : 108 lunar diameters
Moon diameter : 2160 miles
Earth meridian circumference : 21,600 nautical miles
25920 years of the galactic cyle/procession of the equinox : 432 x 60, 60 being at the basis of how we measure time
Speed of Light : 432 x 432 miles per second
Solar system speed inside the galaxy : 43200 miles per hour
Jupiter orbital period : 4,320 days
Mars diameter : 4,320 miles
Sun diameter : 864,000 miles
Jupiter diameter : 86,400 miles
Earth day : 86,400 second

Note: This article by Untwine reminded me of an article about "1" and "8", which are significant numerals in Creation itself, as written in Vishwa Amara:
The Rishis have also discovered that, on other hair-like projections, there are many more such levels. Some have 1008 levels, 10,008 levels, 1,00,008 levels and so on. The number of these levels always begins with 1 and ends with 8, with an ascending number of zeroes in between.
The significance of these numbers exists mainly in bringing about a balance. The number ‘1’ represents Positivity while the number ‘8’ represents the other end of the scale, Negativity. Any number beginning with 1 and ending with 8 signifies a balance of these two opposite polarities! Hence the number 108 or 1008 brings an inherent stability by itself to Manifestation at the highest level.
