I can't crunch the numbers to show a tithe relation between the 144,000 in Revelation and the 603,550 in Israel's first census, except that is close to a "double tithe" (whatever that means).

I think the answer would be found in the significance of "tenth" itself rather than in a significance of tithing agriculture products?
I have given some thought to some of these points that you have made above. Nothing really jumps out at me yet but I believe that the final harvest being the end of the world, or even the rapture could be part of the picture. I definitely agree that the harvest of agriculture likely has no significance, but the agriculture is a type of the harvest of the New Testament, and the New Testament harvest is souls.

That symbolism was a little much for me, and my pinball game tilted.

You do have to be careful about getting too deep into the symbolism. Especially when you’re playing pinball.
