The Number 23
"There is a new movie coming out called No. 23, about how a man sees the number 23 everywhere. "
Do we know that's what it's about? IMDb says it's just about a guy who finds a book that has documented his whole life.
- i'm guessing it links in with the 23 enigma in some way - a concept popularised by Robert Anton Wilson in the 1970s, of which it seems fairly certain the lost writers are aware of... --kaini. 18:56, 21 November 2006 (PST)
Basically the plot synopsis is about a guy who starts to read a book, and draws similarities between the book and his life, and his paranoia perpetuates events in his own life that parallel events in the book, and when he learns of the character's death in the book, he freaks out and tries to prevent it. Not your typical Jim Carry. (and the poster is creepy. --Ohmyn0 (talk) 20:38, 10 December 2006 (PST)
Well it's 208 now so i guess i can clear this up, it's a great movie with jim carrey were he reads a book like you said and starts seeing the number 23 everywhere in the world and it's bad luck, it drives him crazy and it's also based on a true story.Sawbucks 03:39, 23 October 2008 (PDT)

- That's what I like to hear. I belive that the number 23 is changed to 32 in the show by Jack in the begging of the first season. We all know now that the equation that tells us when all human life on earth will expire is the number's 4 8 15 16 23 42 right. Well on disc 3 of season one when charlie gets kidnapped by ethan, jack finds him hung from a tree. Jack tries to give and CPR and it doesn't work. He then starts pounding hard on his chest 23 times but then kate stops jack because she believe's that charlie is a lost cause. But Jack isn't having this right, he pounds 9 more times and charlie wakes up. Charlie was supposed to die that's why jack stopped. But when Jack continues to pound those 9 more times he changes fate. We also know that one of the reason's that dharma is on the island is to change this equation, I believe jack changed one of the numbers 23 to 32. When he pounded those 9 more times charlie woke up and this ment that Jack did what dharma tried, changed one varible in the equation and possibly just bought humanity 9 more years or 1000 who knows. This would make the new equation 4 8 15 16 32 42 or even 13 17 24 25 32 51 if adding 9 to every number. Now this might not even be the case, he might just have temp. changed the number to save just charlie, Or he didn't change it at all he just broke it by bypassing 23, but i like my version.
