The 23 Enigma

176 posts in this topic

Am I going insane? :w00t:

The "23 Enigma" refers to the belief that all incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23. The number 23. Think am crazy? Think again. Heres some examples, skim through them, or read them all if intrigued. What I want you to read really is below all this sh!t.

It is believed that the verses of the Qur'an were revealed over a period of 23 years. There exist hadith that support this figure, but many more that give other lengths of time.

Psalms, the longest book of the Bible, is the 23rd book of the Old Testament, and the famous "Divine Shepherd" psalm is Psalm 23. Those repeating this popular claim overlook that it is only true in a handful of very specific modern Catholic translations. The famous psalm is actually number 22 in the Septuagint and traditional Catholic Bibles, while the books of the Old Testament appear in several different orders; Psalms is number 23 only in modern Catholic Bibles, being book 21 in the traditional Vulgate, book 26 in the Greek Orthodox Bible, book 19 in most Protestant Bibles, and book 14 in the Jewish Tanakh. It is therefore completely false for the Vulgate (chapter 22 of book 21), and only partly true for the King James Version (chapter 23 of book 19).

December 23, 2012 is the date on which the Mayan calendar ends, predicting an apocalyptic event.

Both the ancient Egyptian and Sumerian calendars begin on 23 July. Both calendars were apparently calculated from the date of the heliacal rising of Sirius, which occurs at that latitude around that time of year.

The list goes on and on.

They say that once you reasearch heavily into the 23 mystery, they say that the number starts appearing in your life everywhere. You become obessed, paranoid, it comes after you. It...haunts you. I am living proof. Heres my diary of how the number 23, is coming after me. It can mean many things, patterns, messages, clues to future events, many things. In theory anyway. Heres my diary:

11/19/06

This was the day I watched the trailer for the upcoming film "The Number 23". Intrigued, I went to the website, and researched it. I believe that it is not coincidence...its something...else. It must mean something...but what? And what does it mean to me? On the "Saw 3" website, on the messageboards, I`ve been making this saw story called "Saw 4 Rebirth RPG". On page 20 of it, I made a password for the plot. In it is the number 23.

11/20/06

I own the Saw 2 Uncut DVD. On the special features there is game you can play. Once you get through it you get to a safe, the number to the safe is 7293. You know what number is in it.

11/21/06

A white kid in my 2nd hr said his birthday was on the 23rd of some month, don`t remember month. Werid. Then in 4th hour my US History teacher said shes been working at my school for 23 years! Werid. Whys it keep from appearing?! This number... Then, near the end of 4th hr, coming from the bathroom, I passed a combination lock that had the numbers 23 fixed into it. Plus, 11/23/06 is coming up! Thanksgiving! Am sooooo ****ing creeped out! Then after school, standing at the light by mcdonalds, when I was just about to talk more about the 23 thing with my cousin, i looked over at the sign for armstrong, and the number 23 was on it! What does...it mean? Can i somehow firgure what 23 means? But how?! I`ve come to realize that you don`t look for the 23...it comes for you unexpectedly.

stay tuned....by the way, what u think? Any believers of this, cause if so, me and you need to talk!

Wow, sounds almost like the golden number PHI.

Have you ever attempted to look into other number combinations? For example 36 etc?

Would it work with those too or only number 23?

Here are a few mistakes in your list of “23”

-New York Yankees – 26 world series

-23 Letters on Coins – Have you looked at coins? Look at a new quarter and count the letters and numbers.

-Unabomber – killed 3 and wounded 29.

-Freemason’s Lodge – How many lodges are there in the world that don’t have the number 23 in the address??? And, I couldn’t find one listed in Stafford, England.

-Princess Leia was in cell 2187

-Psalms 46 – Spear is the 47th word from the end. “In” is the 46th word.

-Shakespeare was born in 1564, NOT 1556. And, no one knows for sure of his exact date of birth

-Human Biorhythm Cycle – 23 days for physical, 28 days emotional and 33 days intellectual.

-Blood Circulation – It depends on the person. Average is 7-8 times/minute.

-Geosynchronous Orbit – At 22,241 miles above the earth.

-Dog Days of Summer –Are July 3rd – 11th.

-Average Smoker – More like 13 per day

-Mayan Prophesy – End of world is December 21st.

-Egyptian New Year – They based their new year on the sun and moon.

Does no one check out what they read?

As far as you starting to see the number 23 everywhere - it’s because you’re telling yourself you’re going to. Try telling yourself that you see red cars everywhere, and guess what you’ll start seeing?

There’s enough magic in our everyday lives without having to make numbers special.

Meh, 23 hardly has much on it as far as significant events.. Want significant events, check out 40, 7, and 3. Also, 2/3 doesn't equal .666, it equals .66666666etc. It repeats itself for infinity.

God this is so stupid. 1/30th-ish of the population have their birthday on the 23rd of any month. Blood pumps around the body at various speeds depending on heart rate. "Scottish Rite Freemasonry" has 23 letters....whoa....so does "Thread maker is an idiot, ya ya." If you're gullible enough to believe that something keeps happening then you'll notice it. Why didn't you put all the other numbers? When nothing but the number 23 occurs around you then you can waste some of our time again.

Dividing, subratracting, and multiplying numbers to equal 23 shouldn't count. If 23 was such a significant number everything would be in 23s not 46s or whatever.

You will see the number 0 more often then 23...because o's count as 0's too hehe.

-Princess Leia was in cell 2187

True. But she was in detention block AA-23 in cell 2187.

And it's all tied up 23 to 23 in the 23rd quarter. And we'll take a brief 23 second break.

Dr. Pepper. A delicious blend of 23 flavors

All I have to contribute.

Hitler joined a secret society in 1923.

The Nissan car takes its name from "Ni" which means 2 in Japaneese and "san" which means 3. Nissan means 23.

And tell me, what secret society did Hitler join? The Freemasons? The Rosicrucians? And Ni-san doesn't mean 23; Ni-san is a Japanese term of endearment.

There's many meaning to the term "Nissan" in Japanese!

Nisan,Ni-san: Older brother

Ni-san: Term of endearment (like you said)

Nissan: The car brend...

Ni: Means 2.

San: Means 3.

As for "Which secret society Hitler join" I have no idea...One of my friends tell me! I'll make some research and I'll get back to you! :)
