23 23's

The number 23 is the most important number, the secret behind everything (5 is also the most important number and behind everything). Both Discordians and SubGenii believe this (especially Discordians), but it is also a very common meme throughout popular culture.

Wikipedia has EXACTLY 23 articles on this subject, fnord. Here are all 23 of them: 23 (disambiguation page), 23 (the number), 23 AD (the year), 23 BC (the year), 23 (a 1998 German film), The Number 23 (a 2007 film starring Jim Carrey), 23 enigma (the forbidden secrets about the number 23), Untitled #23 (an album by Australian rock band The Church), 23 (an album by the dream pop band Blonde Redhead), 23 (an album by the J-Pop sexy Japanese babes Rythem), 23 (an EP by the Australian psychedelic rock band The Silents), 23 (an album by the German rap duo Bushido & Sido, a.k.a. 23), 23 skidoo (disambiguation page), 23 skidoo (the phrase), 23 Skidoo (a British experimental industrial fusion band), 23 Skidoo (a 1964 foreign film from Canada), and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo (a Kid-Hop musician from North Carolina who raps to children).

All of this is clearly evidence of a vast conspiracy, which incorporates the number 23 into every plot they hatch, in as many ways as possible.

Discordian American Princess Miley Ray Cyrus, Mike WiLL Made-It and Wiz Khalifa & Juicy J showed the 23 enigma in the song "23."

23 April[]

The Order of the Garter is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain. Each year, it is celebrated with a procession and service in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The Complete Peerage, under “The Founders of the Order of the Garter”, states the order was first instituted on 23 April of 2510 YOLD, listing each founding member as knighted in 2510 YOLD. The Sovereign personally selects Knights and Ladies Companion of the Garter, without political influence. Appointments are typically announced on Saint George’s Day (23 April).

Also this day, 23 April, is considered the birthday and the day of death of William Shakespeare (despite the fact that it is a Julian calendar date, today National Shakespeare Day is celebrated all over the world as 23 April in the Gregorian calendar, not a couple of weeks later, on 3 May in the Gregorian calendar), who in 20 years of his work codified the modern English language (sometimes even called “Shakespeare’s language“). The notion that Shakespeare was born on 23 April is, contrary to belief, a tradition rather than a confirmed fact, but the date of death is considered a monumentally confirmed fact.

Shakespeare's 23 + 23[]

Shakespeare’s plays were first performed in 1588, when Shakespeare was 23. The First Folio of Shakespeare’s works was published in 1623.

Psalm 23+23 of the KJV Bible

Now 23 + 23 = 46.

The King James Bible was first published in 1611, when Shakespeare was 46.


Now do this:

Count to word 46 in the Psalm 46. Note: Do not include the verse numbers in the count.

Then count to the 46th word from the end. Again, do not include the verse numbers in the count, nor the final Selah which is generally thought to be a liturgical or punctuation mark rather than a word.

In Psalm 46, the 46th word from the beginning will be “shake”, and the 46th word from the end will be “spear”.
