So i watch star trek. The number 47 is used quite a bit. Just watching m.a.s.h where they mention 47.

So what could possibly be a reason for movies and shows to put 47. Is it just random chance?

Heres a video game called hitman where agent 47 has to escape a lab where he was brainwashed and trained.
agent 47 wiki

Im thinking its thought triggers for certain susceptable minds.

Not random, it's the 47th proposition of Euclid, the famous Pythagorean theorem.

You'll have to ask the Freemasons about that one.

I don't feel like revealing this secret today.

The origin of the significance of 47 can be traced to The Next Generation and Voyager writer Joe Menosky, who attended Pomona College in California. There is a club at Pomona called The 47 Society




Joe Menosky first started including references to 47 in his scripts in the fourth season of TNG, and the in-joke quickly caught on among the rest of the staff. Since then, references to 47 have been included in many episodes and movies of all the modern series.


There are many in jokes in Sci-Fi. It is just a number and writers often extend a joke into other formats. I do these things myself when writing. If you have read a particular book series ... then you will find a few references. If you haven't read the series ... then you will not get the reference and it will seem just a normal novel.

That particular number has been used at least 3 times? Well, that MUST mean something!

I am in NO way being sarcasic.

This IS important.

< heavy sigh > ANY search engine is your friend, not wishy-washy voodoo speculation. It's a math inside joke from Pomona College, where Joe Menosky went to school.



Forty-seven has been the favorite number of Pomona College, California, United States, since 1964. A mathematical proof, written in 1964 by Professor Donald Bentley, supposedly demonstrates that all numbers are equal to 47. However, Bentley offered it as a "joke proof" to further a popular student research project that listed real and imaginative "47 sightings". Bentley used the invalid proof to introduce his students to the concept of mathematical proofs. The proof used limits to show that the sum of the two equal sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the base side. Bentley chose forty-seven as the base side, but he could have used any number.

en.wikipedia.org...(number)

My husband is a huge math nerd, and while not being remotely familiar with Star Trek or it's inside jokes, knows about the 47 joke proof in historical context. Years ago, after he'd explained the point of the proof when I asked him about it, "OK, so then why do people think it's some super secret cult-y s#?" He answered "Because people are stupid. The proof's still out there, but people are too stupid to understand the point of it. Ergo, shady society excuses instead of admitting being idiots." There you have it, math nerd wins.

Interesting, I just happened to see an info-wars article on Vietnam implementing a government action against "wrong views" on the internet, and

The cyber army, known as Force 47, currently has 10,000 members ready to fight in the Internet’s “information war.”


Strange coincidence?

In 47 BC:


"Veni, vidi, vici" "I came; I saw; I conquered") is a Latin phrase popularly attributed to Julius Caesar who, according to Appian,[1] used the phrase in a letter to the Roman Senate around 47 BC after he had achieved a quick victory in his short war against Pharnaces II of Pontus at the Battle of Zela.[2] The phrase is used to refer to a swift, conclusive victory.
