A date value that's a big number like that is "seconds since epoch". 
The epoch is 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC.  This is a common way of telling 
time on POSIX systems like Linux.  Java uses something similar but not 
identical -- milliseconds since epoch.

The number 1665532450 is equivalent to Tuesday, October 11, 2022 
11:54:10 PM in the UTC timezone.


The digits in the number have no specific meaning.  It's just a big 
decimal number.
