Just recently watching "The number 23
" for the second time now on DVD I felt a little bit inclined to do a bit of reading up on this "Enigma" of a number. Conspiracy therorists say that this number can be traced back to everything, or that the number 23 can be found in everything.. I don't understand how people can portray this as being evil, being less than just simple mathamatics that always can give you the numbers 2 or 3.
Some basic examples, 2/3 = .666 (RWARR THE SIGN OF THE DEVIL).
But here are about 1,000 explanations of this numbers, and examples, go ahead and coast through them, there are definately some interesting ones in there, ... but in the end I just see this as being a crock of shit, what do you guys think?

6662 / 3 = .666... This stuff can be dangerous.

December 23, 2012 A huge cycle ends in the Mayan calendar. Terence McKenna thinks the Eschaton will Immanetize. Other theories suggest the ice caps, having become wobbly from the gravitational pull exerted by the alignment offive planets directly opposing the Spaceship Earth on 5-5-2005, will cause the crust of the Earth to slip over the soggy innards, causing the ice caps to melt, and new ones to form. Of course, this will cause massive flooding, earthquakes, general mayhem and undoubtedly affect the quarterly earnings of Nike. All because the earth is slightly tilted, averaging about 23.5 degrees! (Refer to Graham Hancock'sFingerprints of the Gods for more background on this phenomenon. It ties in the Egyptians and other ancient civilizations, Atlantis, Osiris, star-charts, geological evidence, and hard physical evidence of the remnants of a lost, technologically superior pre-historic race.)
December 23, 2012 The date the Mayans believed the world will end. Hence why they werereally obsessed with time and it's observance.

The date that Dagobert II, a Merovingian King was murdered. Speculation, derived from the research of the highly controversial book entitledHoly Blood, Holy Grail , leads one to conclude this assassination was performed in connivance with the Catholic Church. The church leaders, unhappy with Dagobert's apparent policy of religious tolerance in his kingdom, located in the south of France, allegedly got him out of the way to best serve their own interests. A predecessor of Dagobert, Clovis, had an alliance with the Catholic church, so it is possible that church leaders saw Dagobert's actions as a betrayal of what was considered a long standing policy of pro-Catholic reforms.
