    Re: The Number 23 Phenomneon

    And also some dates and years were added to get number 23, which might mean that the person was looking different combinations to get number 23. True, I do believe there are many more incidents involving numbers other than 23, let's say for example....
    Mother Teresa died on September 5, 1997.
    1+9+9+7 = 26

    That is insuffeciat data for this. 26 doestn have as many odd happenings as 23 especially the small things. i mean its just scary how almost everything adds up to 23 like the alphabets are numbers. so add your name then divide by how many letters are in your name what number do you get

    Re: The Number 23 Phenomneon

    Besides the atomic bomb, none of the events you listed are or likely will be historically significant. Perhaps if important, significant events shared this it would be reasonable, but tens of thousands of events on scale with Mother Teresa and the WTC have happened thus far, I'm sure if you take the dates of all these you'll find 23 comes up just about as often as other numbers.

    Lets try this with important events. What is an important event? Something that in 100 years history books will have more than a blub on. WTC will not be one of these, mother Teresa even less so.

    To start things off, how about Martin Luther's 95 thesis which sparked the reformation and shattered the power of the catholic church, created countless clones of Roman Catholicism (Calvinism, Protestantism, Lutheranism, ect.) and was the cause of several wars and even more strife including the Spanish Inquisition (and it's Dutch counterpart)

    Significant? Certainly so. This occured at the 31st of October, 1517, lets see if we can twist these numbers to make 23.

    1+0+3+1+1+5+1+7=19

    10+31+1+5+1+7=55

    95-55=40

    (10+31)-(15+17)=9

    (10+31)-(1+5+1+7)=27

    While there are other combinations, it doesn't look like this is going anywhere.

    How about the 100 years war? That was certainly a big event. Before WWI the "100 years war" was THE war in England and France's eyes. Everyone knew about it even though it happened back in the 14th century, stories were told by parents to children on down the family tree. Especially in France, stories of the famous "Joan of Arc" are still told.

    It started in 1337 and lasted 116 years until 1453. Exact start and end dates are debated, though the years are known.

    1+3+3+7=14
    1+4+5+3=13
    1+3+3+7+1+4+5+3=27
    1+3+3+7+1+4+5+3-1-1-6=19
    1+3+3+7+1+1+6=22
    1+4+5+3+1+1+6=21

    There are dozens of numbers regarding this war and the only one I have found to support your view is the the first phase of the 100 years war lasted 23 years, neither of the other phases did, however. I'm not going to bother going into the dates of the births/deaths/reigns of the monarches of Britian and France during this time since that would just be silly, besides both countries went through leaders like a deck of cards (France moreso than England however, due to Edward III's 50 year sitting on the English throne)

    And quickly, 30 years war:

    1618-1648

    1+6+1+8=16
    1+6+4+8=19

    16+48=64
    16+18=34

    64-34=30 (obviously)

    Not quite sure where else I could go with that.

    One of the first things you learn when taking any course on experimentation or experimental design is that correlation does not imply causation

    the number 23 ads up to alot let me explain there has been something called the Number 23 Eningma and many of the events in history invloved the number 23 the Mayans believe the World Would END on Dec.23,2012
    Day = 23Year = 2012
    20+1+2= 23
    END = 5+14+4=23
    the world spins on a axis of 23.5 however you could say the 5 is just 2+3 which is in itself 23

    2/3=.666 the curse of the devil

    the hiroshima bomb was dropped at 8:15 AM 8+15=23the twin towweres for example 9+11+2+0+0+1=23...listen to this one the letter W is the 23rd letter in the alphabetit has 2 points down and 3 points up now look at your keyboardand look at what number is above the letter W.... 23

    im sure i sound like a total freak right now but alot still isnt known about ........23 and i want to discover more

    the movie wasnt that great. all those things are just coincidences. as you can see there are very few things the number 23 is significant with.

    EDIT: that movie sucked.

    EDIT2: it started out good but got progressively worse. the ending was too drawn out. it was a shock, but then they went to describe it in detail for the next 30 min.
