A few Months back I bought a book called Everything is Wrong by Robert Anton Wilson
and amongst all the conspiracies and plots that are detailed therein is a section called The
23 Enigma.  In biblical parlance the scales were lifted from my eyes and I started seeing
23’s everywhere.  Is this occurrence of 23’s a sign of God as infinite jester? Don't know,
but I feel there are enough mathematical, literary and historical  occurrences to make one
