23...2/3...2002-2003, 2 divded by 3 =0.666, 666=10^3 x 2/3 - 1

666 - 111 = 555 = SSS = 555= E V E (E is the 5th letter, V = 5, E)

23: How weird Is That?

The spooky numerical connection between Buddy Holly, Michael Jordan ... and me

I woke up today at 10:13. Ten plus 13 is 23. This article is being published on Feb. 3 -- the second month and third day of the year, or 2/3. Forty-eight years ago on this day, a plane crash killed three legends of rock and roll: Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. Other culture heroes like William Shakespeare, Johnny Carson and River Phoenix each had their birth and death on the 23rd day of a month. Kurt Cobain died in the year 1994 (1 + 9 + 9 +4 = 23!). You see where this kind of thinking takes you?

Jim Carrey stars in a supernatural thriller titled The Number 23, which opens on Feb. 23. In it, his character receives a book titled, yes, The Number 23, and as a result becomes aware of a lot of occurrences of 23 in his life. The more he looks, the more he sees. Soon he is obsessed, soon after, unhinged. The film is inspired by an actual occult belief in the number 23, called the 23 Enigma. The more you learn about it, the weirder it becomes.

This is a primer on the number 23, itself a prime number, a number divisible without a remainder by only itself and the number 1. The earth's axis is on a 23-degree tilt. Two divided by three gives you .666 repeating, which rounded off early gives you the Number of the Beast. Three divided by two gives you 1.5 which gives you ? nothing exactly. But wait, there's more!

One of the earliest to subscribe to the 23 Enigma was beat poet William S. Burroughs. For him, it was not just the unusual frequency of the number; it was that in any coincidence he would find the number 23. When he was in Tangiers in the 1960s, Burroughs met one Captain Clark, a ferry captain who boasted of not having had an accident for 23 years. That night the boat sank, killing Clark and everyone aboard. Later that evening, Burroughs heard a radio broadcast about a plane crash. The pilot's name was Captain Clark. The flight number was 23. After that day, Burroughs kept a record of similar coincidences. Throughout his journal, 23 recurred over and over, like a footprint of chance, like the signature on the handiwork of fate.

The 23rd letter of the alphabet is W, a letter whose shape suggests two horns pointing down and three points up, like the devil-horns hand-sign thrown up at rock concerts. On the typewriter keyboard, W lies directly below the two and three. Are you feeling like me yet?

Another high lord of 23 was Robert Anton Wilson, a self-described skeptic, science-fiction author and former Playboy editor. He caught the 23 bug after a Playboy interview with Burroughs, which made him start records of his own. In an essay on the enigma, Wilson writes of how he was thrilled to discover that parents each contribute 23 chromosomes of DNA at their child's conception. He completely freaked out when he learned that Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), the British poet and author of books on magic and the occult, also tied 23 to reproduction "by defining 23 as the number of 'parting, removal, separation,' 'Joy' 'a Thread' and 'Life.' ?Wilson died last month, on Jan. 11, 23 days before the publication of the article you're reading now. What's more, this article was assigned on Jan. 23.Creepy.

Song: Counting Blue Cars Lyrics

Must of been mid afternoon
I could tell by how far the child's shadow stretched out and
He walked with a purpose
In his sneakers, down the street
He had, many questions
Like children often do
He said,
Tell me all your thoughts on God
Tell me am I very far?

Must of been late afternoon
On our way the sun broke free of the clouds
We count only blue cars
Skip the cracks, in the street
And ask many questions
Like children often do
We said,
Tell me all your thoughts on God
'Cause I would really like to meet her.
And ask her why we're who we are.
Tell me all your thoughts on God,
Cause I am on my way to see her.
So tell me am I very far -
Am I very far now?

Its getting cold picked up the pace
How our shoes make hard noises in this place
Our clothes are stained
We pass many, cross eyed people
And ask many questions
Like children often do

Tell me all your thoughts on God
'Cause I would really like to meet her.
And ask her why we're who we are.
Tell me all your thoughts on God?
'Cause I am on my way to see her.
So tell me am I very far?
Am I very far now
Am I very far now
Am I very far now
