The 23 Enigma

This inexplicable fascination with 23 has become a mind-virus, seeping into the music of 'Psychic TV', the art of H.R. Giger, the comics of Jamie Hewlett and Grant Morrison, the literature of Robert Anton Wilson, Arthur Koestler, Umberto Eco, and countless others. The pages of the 'Principia Discordia' supply another feast of 23s. It now reached a point where one has to be sharp to differentiate between the 23s meant as signposts for those in the know, and those which appear for no obvious reason, in the damndest of places. The Internet is these days littered with lists of historical and scientific '23s', some of which are not so ` - i.e. mere coincidence, some mind-boggling - beautiful synchronicity.

I've generally organized the coincidances their related subjects:

- Mathematical Mayhem
- Physical Phun & Phrolics
- Astronomy & Astrology; Space, and all that...
- Ufology
- Literature
- Religion, sects and the occult
- Musical Madness
- Coincidances with computers
- (Moving) Pictures
- Historical events, politics, and related stuff

Are the list-items s`posta be connected to something? (If I really cared, I'd right-click and "view source," but I don't; so I doubt that anyone else will care either.)

Talking about strange things, and because you also deal with UFOs, I invite you to see the blog of the Unusual Aerial Phenomena Study Group.

I'm sure it will be a wonderful experience. In sincerely recommend it to all of those who are seriously interested in those kind of phenomena.

You'll find it at http://www.uapsg.org/
