The 23 enigma refers to the belief that most incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23, some modification of the number 23, or a number related to the number 23.

9 + 11 + 2 + 1 = 23

87 x 23 = 2001

I wonder if the golden ratio is remated in soem way?

I just read a book that said that many things unfold at an 80/20 rate (percentage-wise)
It's called the 80/20 principle
It started on wallstreet
Some famous economist (Vilfredo Pareto) demonstrated that an uneven , but predictible distribution of wealth and income in society became apparent to him.
It was that 80 percent of the wealth and income is produced and possessed by 20 percent of the population.

He later noticed this proportion seemed to show up over and over again in life..for instance, when he planted peas..eighty percent of his peas were produced by 20 percent of his plants.

I noticed while reading all this that it sounded an awful lot like the golden ratio..visually it looks to be about an 80/20 ratio, doesn' it?
close, at least

Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

Proving that primes are not random has defied proof until now, so far I mean.

If the primes are truly random then it is easy to understand how an infinite number of different universes can exist, all with their own unique identity and there would be no need for an infinite number of identical At1with0's to exist.
