I can't believe I didn't pick up on this, and maybe someone else pointed it out. In the chapter regarding Xu Qing being refined into a pill, it was mentioned that they needed 49 days, that no one could hold out longer than that. Guess what, in Journey to the West, when the Monkey King (Sun Wukong) is being refined into a pill, he emerges after 49 days! Coincidence? I think not!
