23 on the wall

At about 3:50 into the video you can briefly see the Chinese characters for the number 23.

So it seems the number may have some significance to Adam. It might just be based around the hyped up mystery of the number or it might mean something more to him, who knows? It is also displayed quite boldly behind a picture Camella on his myspace page.

Re: 23 on the wall

oh crap do I have to prove it?


I don't know shit about screenshots and what not, but I didn't even need to get my Salival DVD out to confirm my suspicions. I went to youtube and paused it at 3:50.

Ok here is a shot:

Re: 23 on the wall

the + is chinese for 10. (and two lines=2, three lines=3). Chinese in its traditional form is read downwards and 2,10,3 means (2x10)+3. Trust me, my girlfriend is Chinese.

Or just look it up here

He is right. I just studied Chinese numbers in math. That is most definately a 23.

Nobody knows why its there?

Re: 23 on the wall

Could it have to do with the 23 chromosomes in the human sex cell?

Would make sense listening to 46 & 2

Re: 23 on the wall

Twenty-three is the coincidence number...google it to see what I mean. It will make loads more sense to you then (I hope).

And yes, pretty much the same reason they named Viginti Tres.

I dunno, just putting two and two together...

It's behind Camella in her photo, he does make the videos and I remember reading that it was him and Baressi who made Viginti Tres in the studio. But from all the nonsense Blair says about 23, I am sure Danny has something to do with it too.

Re: 23 on the wall

23 is a prominent number in the occult, dont quote me on that, but it serves some magickal purpose. I believe Reflection, Disposition, and Triad off of Lateralus add up to be 23:00 minutes long...give or take a few seconds, that's why there's so much silence at the end of Triad.
