Re: the 23 thing I don't often talk about it anymore because of the unresearched abuse that comes my way. However, you can scratch the surface of
this by googling 23 enigma or 23 phenomenon. But you'll only scratch the surface and you'll bring up a lot of rubbish and banal stuff to. Off the
top of my head:
23 degrees is the tilt of the Earth's axis
23 hours 56 mins in a day.
23 Wall Street
23/1/2003 Security and Prosperity Report about North American Union
23/3/2005 trilateral summit at Waco, Texas, in which President George W. Bush, then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and then-Mexican President
Vicente Fox declared the Security and Prosperity Partnership on their own authority, without any approval from the U.S. Congress.
I'm more interested in the way the NWO encode 23 into their activities. Take Obama's recent State of Emergency on the Swine Flu dated 23/10 but
released to the public the next day. It was no accident they chose the 23rd. They believe in numerology and ritual and feel that as well as a wave or
nod to those in the know (just like the horned hand signal) using 23 will give more power to something. Not only that, but the next best thing to 23
is 24 or 22. So if you were to plot thousands of significant events on a scatter graph there would be a massive cluster around 23, also around 23/7,
23/10 and 23/3 when using only dates
People poo poo this idea by saying if you go looking you'll see it everywhere just like you would with any number, but my own personal research tells
me this is not true.
And here's the bit that will bring forth abuse:
As a demonstration to sceptical friends, about 8 years ago I did a 2 week experiment. I took a notepad with me everywhere and I tried to write down
every number I was exposed to. The results were 60% 23 40% all other numbers. I then did another week where I never left the house and recorded all
numbers I saw on the TV in shows movies and news, again I came to 60% 23s. Now if you factor in unavoidable bias by myself or poor recall of other
numbers that percentage drops significantly however it remains much higher than randomness or probability would suggest.
23 commonly comes up in movies and shows these days and i believe it's partly real but more often than not its writers who have also stumbled on this
phenomenon and have encoded it into their work for kicks, to perpetuate the enigma, or even because they are hoping to use the so called power of
I used to write an invite only blog that discussed many things like this and actually had a 'daily 23 indicator' just like a weather summary,
humidity indicator or pollen count. I graded each day as low, medium, high and scary. I've moved 7 times since then and had many PCs so I have yet to
re-aquire my previous research, but I have started researching the subject again for my own amusement and possibly a future thread.
