Love Will Tear Us Apart--23 Style!

Here’s a couple of my own contributions to the 23 Enigma.
Joy Division’s 1980 7″ single on Factory Records, the great “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” had the serial number FAC 23 (I own it). Note that:

--“23″ in occult traditions means “break apart.”
--“23″ in old telegraph code meant “break the line.”
--The band recording the song has the word “division” in its name.

Ironic, innit, that a “factory” is a place where things are put together?

Also, in relation to both the “23″ and the “Captain Clark” (see the link above) aspects of the whole thing:

--In 2003, the space shuttle Columbia “fell apart”--with Captain Laurel Clark aboard.
--The shuttle’s mission number--107--adds up to 8--8 is 2 to the 3rd power--23!

Christ, I shoulda been a conspiracy theorist.

2003 boils down to 23, too, because 00's are nothing, right?
