Hagbard explained that toward the end, I think. It's a fun little trick.
Heh, by a forced manipulation of my social security number 6-6-6 can be derived, although I am fairly sure that I am not the anti-christ...Scott Baio is. (Sorry, very old joke. But there is no Elvis in Micheal J. Fox, he most definately is the anti-Elvis)

...Prince (of course Prince fixated on the number 17 due to his belief that he was a 17th century composer reincarnated or so the story went)
An exploratory team from the ACIO is dispatched to the discovery site of the Compass artifact where it is confirmed that the Compass is a homing device, leading the team to an intricately designed structure carved deep inside a canyon wall. A helix-shaped corridor spirals up through the rock with 23 chambers jutting out at ten-meter intervals.
Unusual circumstances being linked to 23 are mentioned by William S. Burroughs. He tells the story of meeting a ferry captain named Clark who claimed to have sailed the same route without an accident for 23 years. That very day, however, the ferry sank. Later that day, Burroughs writes, he was thinking about Clark's ferry accident when he heard that a Flight 23 on a New York-Miami route had crashed. According to Burroughs, the pilot's name for the flight had also been Clark. Burroughs began collecting incidences of the number 23 in a scrapbook and referred to them in his writings.

Have you considered that it might be a predilection towards prime numbers? In this thread 11, 17 and 23 have all come up, all prime numbers.

23 mins: GOAL Holland 1-0 Ivory Coast
He set it up, he scored it. A moment of brilliance from Robin van Persie gives the Dutch a first-half lead, the striker curling home the set-piece from 22 yards into the top corner beyond the reach of Jean-Jacques Tizie.
