From what I had read it is supposed to have mystical powers and that was also one of the reasons why Michael Jordan chose it.
So lets have a look.
- 23 is the ninth prime number, the smallest odd prime which is not a twin prime.
- Human sex cells have 23 chromosomes. Other human cells have 2 sets of 23 chromosomes (23 from the father and 23 from the mother)
- Psalm 23, The Lord is my shepherd, is the most quoted psalm.
- In the Discordianism religion 23 is a holy number.
- In Islam, the holy book Quran was revealed in a total of 23 years to Prophet Muhammad.
- It is the number of the Illuminati
- A federal grand jury in the United States consists of 23 members.
- It is one of the lost numbers in the TV show "Lost"
Here is more of the same.
So, make up your own mind? For me, I have been told that 1 and 7 are my lucky numbers but they haven't helped me win the lottery.
And 23 is the number that a legend wore on his back and still does - Jamie "23 Carra Gold" Carragher.
It was also the first number that Robbie "God" Fowler had and since changing has not really had much luck with injuries...mmmmmm.
