In the early ’60’s in Tangiers, William Burroughs knew a certain Captain Clark who ran a ferry from Tangiers to Spain. One day, Clark said to Burroughs that he’d been running the ferry 23 years without an accident. That very day the ferry sank, killing Clark and everyone aboard.
In the evening, Burroughs was thinking about this when he turned on the radio. The first newscast headlined the crash of an airline plane on the New York-Miami route. The pilot was another Captain Clark and the flight was listed as Flight 23.
Burroughs began keeping records of odd coincidences. To his astonishment, 23s appeared in a lot of them. When he told me this, I began keeping my own records – and 23s appeared in many of them.
The other day I had an amazing bout of cosmic coincidence relating to Robert Anton Wilson and the numbers 666 and 23. Within the span of an hour, the following occurred:
(1) While browsing in a bookstore near the customer service counter, I overheard a bloke inquire as to whether they had any RAW books in stock. He asked specifically about The Illuminatus! Trilogy.
(2) Immediately thereafter, I went next door to do a bit of grocery shopping. While waiting in the checkout line, the cashier notified the woman in front of me that the cost of her purchase was $6.66. RAW’s work focused on many occult topics, including Aleister Crowley, the infamous magus. Crowley identified himself as the Great Beast 666 (.666=2/3), and he began his study of magic at the age 23.
(3) While stopped at a red light on the drive home, I glanced over at the local weekly paper on my passenger seat. On the cover was a picture of an attractive young lass who was being profiled inside. I quickly flipped to the article and learned that she was a barista at Starbucks – the very same Starbucks that my car was stopped right in front of. On page 23 of the weekly, there is an advertisement featuring a picture of the lass. The Starbucks where she works, and where I was sitting, is located on Highway 23.
Which brings me to the horrific domestic terrorist act that occurred in Austin, Texas. The 23 Enigma once again rears its naughty little head when one adds up the numbers of the date of the attack. February 18, 2010 (2+18+2+0+1+0=23). This finding takes on greater synchromystic significance when compared to the “War of Terror” spawning event that greatly reshaped our World. The date of 9-11-2001 also adds up to the number 23 (9+11+2+0+0+1=23).
Are the Masonic Scorcerors intentionally selecting numerologically significant dates to trigger a subconscious Pavlovian trauma response to staged terror events? Is the Cosmic Matrix Engineer (Multiverse Overmind) providing subtle clues for those with the time and inclination to admire its handiwork? Or, can the blogger’s focus on this matter be chalked up to a diseased mind and a healthy dose of selection/confirmation bias?
Joe Stack – domestic terrorist bass player
Joe Stack, the 53-year-old software engineer who allegedly flew a single engine aircraft into an Austin-based IRS office on Thursday morning, was more than just a criminal or possible domestic terrorist.
The video below is titled “The World Wasn’t Built for People with Autism” by the Billy Eli Band. Here you can find the band’s merchandising site that sells cool t-shirts and classic thongs (which are made in the USA).
