It's the Shakespeare Prophecy: "Beware the Ides of March" - clearly an indication that he was predicting a disaster would one day occur on that date!
Numerology plays a very significant role in religion, politics and the Powers that Be.
In many ways religion lends itself to what is more or less “Ancestor Worship” as societies tends to pattern themselves off of heroes. Or at least tasks us to emulate heroes, here in the United States it’s typically George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Abraham Lincoln et al, or the audacious and military types like George Armstrong Custer, brave and valiant willing to kill or be killed for god country and king.
England you have Richard the Lion Heart and William Marshall to name a few.
Hero Worship goes back to Gilgamesh and Achilles and the dates of their most heroic actions, failures, births or deaths tend to me immortalized along with them throughout the ages.
Of course it’s the state that decides who is a hero, a butch like William Tecumseh Sherman or a little girl who ate no lunch at school for a month to save up her lunch money to give it to a family who was struggling to pay for their little girl’s cancer operation.
Hint it’s usually not the little girl!
Often the hero’s life has been grossly and purposefully distorted over time, to make that hero more or less exactly what the State and its society would like you to emulate.
The celebration then of dates through various forms becomes yet another way to keep those dogmas and legends alive and powerful.
Hence we celebrate President’s Day every February to celebrate Washington the most honest American who ever lived who was actually a very gifted liar, and Lincoln the man who freed the Slaves and saved the Union who was actually an opportunistic tyrant who saw to the destruction of the Constitution.
Of course the average person would never consider the above true, in part because the dates are meant to reinforce the dogmas and falsehoods once a year!
Quite a coincidence Caesar being stabbed 23 times and the number 23 means death?
All part of an ancient system of numerology practiced mostly by Freemasons and little known by others.
Great post, look forward to seeing your future ones.
