Cosmic Consciousness

"coincidences" as the teacherMy friend Wai Leng asked me for a resume on the number 23 so I'm sharing thoughts and some research with you.

I vaguely recalled from own days in school, the discussions on the law of probability and how they had used 23 as the example to prove - that if 23 people are gathered together then 2 or more will have been born on the same day. I have included the mathematics of this below - should you wish to read it. Thinking along these 'thoughts' lead me to share with you the graphic with 23 images of people in it. I have not created an equal balance of male and female but do wish to note that we each have 23 chromosomes given to us by our father and our mother - an important part of our biological makeup, in creating us as 'ordinary' humans. Some people are special and receive an extra chromosome. The letter W is the 23rd letter of the English alphabet and is a double U - so once again 23 is in balance. In double digit numerology 23 is a promoter of causes, a freedom fighter a little unrealistic but loves people.

As a divinatory tool I turned to the Runes - No. 23 Othila

keywords: separation, inheritance, ancestral home.

Othila is a sign that new directions should be taken. The past separates the present and broadens your attitude. New directions are signposted, however it is very important to honour your ancestors at this time. This is a time to searhc for the truth. Inheritance with Othila may mean that it is just that, but is also wise to think that it also alledes to relingquishing something old so that the new you may emerge. It is time to realise your potential. Othila is the Rune of 'acquisition and benefit". Othila is telling you it is time for radical severance (clearing) in your life. Sometimes it is of greater wisdom to retreat than fight

23 is suggesting that you allow yourself the time to know yourself and step into the power which you have allowed to dissipate.

With a birthday on the 23rd of the month you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them. You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas. You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel. You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable. Your mind is quick, clever and analytical. A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine. You may have a tendency to shirk responsibility. Very sociable, you make friends easily and you are an excellent traveling companion.http://www.findyourfate.com/numerology/birthdays.htm#23

The first twelve prime numbers are -

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37

A number is called prime if its only factors are one and itself.

Many numbers can be made by multiplying smaller numbers together. For example -

3 x 7 = 21

- 3 and 7 are called factors of 21. But some numbers cannot be made in this way and these are called prime numbers. For example, 23 is a prime number because it cannot be made by multiplying together smaller numbers. Numbers like 21 which are not prime are sometimes called composite numbers.All prime numbers, apart from 2, are odd numbers.

# Coincidence

In a group of 23 people, at least two have the same birthday with the probability higher than 1/2.

This could be reformulated the following way. There is a bag of 365 different items. We pick an item at random. Note which one it was and return it back into the bag. The question: how many items should we pick so that with a probability higher than 1/2 we would have picked the same item twice. The items in the bag are assumed to be thoroughly mixed before every trial. Is it not surprising that all it takes is 23 items?

To prove our assertion let us start with just two people. What is the probability p

_{2}that two random persons have the same birthday? It's easier to answer a related question. What is the probability q_{2}that two random persons have different birthdays? Obviously, p_{2}+ q_{2}= 1. Thus answering one question we automatically get an answer to another.Thus we have a person with a birthday which falls onto one of the 365 days and ask what is the probability that another person has a different birthday. Since any day out of 365 but the birthday of the first person would make a different birthday, q

_{2}= 364/365.Consider now three people. What is the probability q

_{3}that no two of them have the same birthday? Obviously p_{3}+ q_{3}= 1, where p_{3}is the probability that at least two of the group have the same birthday. As before, take one fellow and his birthday. The second has now 364 days to choose from and, if the third was born on any of the remaining 363 days they would form a "no-overlapping-birthday" group. Thus q_{3}= (364/365)·(363/365).Proceeding in this fashion we'll get q

_{4}= (364/365)·(363/365)·(362/365), and so on. Since every fraction in these products is less than 1, the sequence q_{2}, q_{3}, q_{4}, ... is decreasing. Therefore, the sequence p_{2}, p_{3}, p_{4}, ... is increasing. Now, perhaps, it would be less surprising to learn that p_{23}> 1/2 . Remember thatq _{23}=(364/365)·(363/365)·...·(343/365)The Theory of Probability supplies not a small number of unexpected results, controversial problems and paradoxes.

`Twenty-three, skidoo!' is an American catch phrase from the beginning of the century. It may have come from the stage play of Charles Dickens's

*A Tale of Two Cities*where an old woman counts the victims being executed on the guillotine. As she speaks `Twenty-three!' the hero Sydney Carton is beheaded in the last act. Henry Miller's serious dramatisation of the story was parodied by Broadway comedians and became `Twenty-three, skidoo!'.Aleister Crowley (A tarot master) defined number 23 as "parting, removal, separation, joy, a thread, and life . . ."The mystical number 23Runes were found at:the midi playing is:The 23rd Psalm**The Lord's My Shepherd**

Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Words: Scottish Psalter, 1650.

Music: Crimond, Jessie S. Irvine, 1872.

The Lords my Shepherd, Ill not want.

He makes me down to lie

In pastures green; He leadeth me

The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;

And me to walk doth make

Within the paths of righteousness,

Even for His own Names sake.

Yea, though I walk in deaths dark vale,

Yet will I fear no ill;

For Thou art with me; and Thy rod

And staff my comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnishèd

In presence of my foes;

My head Thou dost with oil anoint,

And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life

Shall surely follow me;

And in Gods house forevermore

My dwelling place shall be.All lyrics are the copyright of their respective owners and are provided here only for educational purposes
