The Number 22

Two days ago, I found out about a movie called "The Number 23". It's a movie about the 23 Enigma, the belief that everything adds up to, in some way, the number 23.

Now, this being Four Island, it's quite obvious that I wouldn't believe such a thing. I'm more likely to believe that everything is four, and let's face it, it's true.

But, I can be very paranoid. FACT: I took the battery and SIM card out of my phone before watching the trailer for The Ring. So, being paranoid as usual, I decided to add up the time of my birth. 4:06 PM. (Yes, I know, I was born at FOUR o'clock, and I'm very proud of that fact) Obviously, 4 and 6 doesn't equal 23. But.... this is 12-hour time. What about 24 hour time?


Added together, 22.

Ok, it may not be 23, but think. You may recognize that number from elsewhere on Four Island. Yes, April 22nd is Trider's CIEday, and Four Island was created on September 22nd.

Coincidence? Yes, I think so. But still, the senseless paranoia is fun. And as an added 23-tidbit, look at the post I linked to earlier in this post about everything being Four. It may be Four-centered, but look at the publish date. That's right, January 23rd.

EDIT: After closely examining the Everything is Four post, I realized another snippet of apophenia. The time that the post was published. The digits add up to 22.

Very scary fact: This post was posted on June 16th 2008. That's 6/7/2008. Or 6+7+2+8=.....23.

Also, look at quote #23. Be very afraid.

I think it's more than just a coincidence.

.......................I doubt it. And if you bothered to count the periods over there, I know, 23, that was on purpose.

I agree absolutely with the definition of Apophenia, and how it related to the 23 Enigma. It's only there because we're looking for it.

Therefore, I say that we STOP thinking about 23 and START thinking about 4! Then, it'll be everywhere, and I'll be closer to taking over your peoples' minds! HAHAH-oops, did I just comment that? Poop.

23 is cool though. i like it. and for a person who doesn't beleive in the 23 enigma, you sure find a lot of 23s...

Well, it HAS to be a coincidence. The only truly magical number is 4. The only reason I'm finding 23 everywhere is because I'm looking for it and you know that.

Right... that was odd. I like 7.

Don't worry, TimTam, that was my cousin. lol

And this does not advocate 7! :)
