Vestige of the Vox Populi #25
The "23 Enigma" is an uncanny numerological synchronicity in which all events may be seen to contain, or be contained by, the number 23.
According to the Principia Discordia,
The Law of Fives states simply that: ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPROPRIATE TO 5. Number 23 represents this concept.
For example "
This is my 25th vid post. 25 is 5x5. 5 is 2 plus 3. The numbers 2 and 3 together form 23.
-The human body has 46 chromosomes, 23 from each parent.
-There are 23 vertebrae in the human body.
-The Earth is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees.
-October 13 (10+13=23), the Knight Templars were arrested in France... hence Friday the 13th being considered a day of bad luck.
-9/11 WTC Attack. 9 + 11, + 2001 (2+1=3) = 23.
-TV series Babylon 5, has a space station 5 miles long, a 5 year story line, set in the 23rd century.
-The Original Star Trek occurred in the 23 century, with a 5 year mission.
-23 is the first prime number in which both digits are prime numbers and add up to another prime number.
-Two (2), three (3), and five(5) are the first three prime numbers in our counting system.
-Two (2) and Three (3) are next to each other in that system.
-W is the 23rd letter of the English alphabet. The symbol for that letter is two points down and three points up.
