23 – All I see now is 23…

The Number 23…

This movie was very interesting… I DO NOT SUGGEST watching it if you are a numbers person because then all you will see is 23 all around you (even if it is not there)… The movie however did carry an okay storyline… It was a little weird seeing Jim Carey in a serious role, I am used to the Liar, Liar; Ace Ventura; part of Jim Carey…

Here’s some interesting facts about the movie:

The address of the bookstore is 599. 5+9+9=23. – Walter’s room at the asylum was 318. 31-8=23. – The number of letters in “Animal Control Department” – The apartment number across from the suicide blonde’s apartment (959) – The dog in the movie is named NED. N is the 14th letter of the alphabet; E is the fifth; and D is the fourth. 14 + 5 + 4 = 23. – The numbers on Walter’s car add up to 23 (906 8TC, 9+0+6+8=23, 20(T)+3(C)=23) – The numbers on Issac’s car is 023 5HJ, H is the eight letter in the alphabet and J is the tenth, 5 + 8(H) + 10(J) = 23 – The store front numbers that Fingerling is standing in front of while watching Fabrizia & Phoenix add to 23 (12, and 110). – The film was released in the US on February 23, 2007. – The number of Walter Sparrow’s footlocker 87305 = 23 (8+7+3+5) – The PO Box that Carrey and his family mail the boxes to is “P.O.Box 977”. 9+7+7 =23 – His birthday is February the 3rd, 2/3, 23.

Factual errors: In real numerology, numbers are added together to form a single digit number that might have significance. The sum should never exceed 9. This is in accordance to the nine personality types, the nine planets in the solar system, and many other things. For example, Walter’s room at the asylum was 318. When calculated in the movie it is suppose to equal 23, 31-8=23. However in real numerology the number would be added as 3+1+8, equaling 12. The sum would then be added again to create a single digit, 1+2 = 3. 3 would be the significant number here, and there are many sources on the Internet or in various numerology books that would define what significance that number would hold for the individual. As another example, the address of the bookstore would have more credibility as their sum does equal 23 (5+9+9=23). But another step would need to be taken to convert the sum into a single digit (2+3 = 5). Finally, birthdays and other notable dates in numerology are always factored with the year. Following the formula of February 3 (2/3 = 23) would be inaccurate. But December 12, 1975 (12/12/1975 = 1+2+1+2+1+9+7+5 = 28 = 2+8 = 10 = 1+0 = 1. Therefore, for a person born on this date, the number 1 should be the most significant.

This movie gets 3 out of 5 stars from me… I don’t think it was intriguing enough…

And I am numbers person so now all I see is 23 but it was just the one night (radio, street signs, bank balances, etc.)… It’s over now…
