The Dollar, Our Nation, and number #13

Anonymous (@) 7 years, 3 months ago

The Dollar, Our Nation, and the #13.

Go into your wallet or purse and take out a dollar bill. If you do not have one ask someone to borrow theirs for a few minutes. Take out the bill and look at it, study it a bit. You will notice three messages on the bill that are in latin. When translated those three latin messages mean:

“e pluribus unum” – From many, One. – or – One, from many.

“Annuit Coeptis” – “He (The divine architect, or God) approves of our undertakings”.

“Novus Ordo Seclorum” – A New Order of the Ages.

Notice all the 13’s on this bill? How many 13’s can you find? See how many things add up to thirteen before reading on.

Some feel that the number 13 is an unlucky number. You will usually never see a room numbered 13, or hotels or motels with a 13th floor. But the significance of the number 13 in U.S. history is very strong. The number 13 as used on many U.S. symbols (the stripes on the flag, steps on the Pyramid, 13 stars above the eagle, 13 plumes of feathers on each of the Eagle’s wings, 13 bars on the shield, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 fruits, and 13 arrows) all represent the beginning of our country, as established by the thirteen colonies. But it should also remind us of the importance of the “13th Amendment”. And you can, and should, be reminded of the history of this country each time you look at a one dollar bill.

So why all the 13’s? Granted we were a very young nation when many of these elements were designed, still building from the original 13 colonies. So while much of the reason for 13 may be interpreted this way there is a deeper meaning behind so many 13’s. As you may know our society has damn near condemned the number #13. Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. Many buildings don’t have a 13th floor. It is thought that If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil’s luck (Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names to name a few).

In North America and Europe, a significant portion of the population behaves very strangely on Friday the 13th. They won’t fly in airplanes, host a party, apply for a job, get married or even start a new project. Some people won’t even come into work. In the United States, roughly 8 percent of the population is afraid of Friday the 13th, a condition known as paraskevidekatriaphobia. The superstition surrounding Friday the 13th is actually a combination of two separate fears — the fear of the number 13, called triskaidekaphobia, and the fear of Fridays. The most familiar source of both these phobias is Christian theology. Thirteen is significant to Christians because it is the number of people who were present at the Last Supper (Jesus and his 12 apostles). Judas, the apostle who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th member of the party to arrive.

It is said: Never change your bed on Friday; it will bring bad dreams. Don’t start a trip on Friday or you will have misfortune. If you cut your nails on Friday, you cut them for sorrow. Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck as in the tale of H.M.S. Friday … One hundred years ago, the British government sought to quell once and for all the widespread superstition among seamen that setting sail on Fridays was unlucky. A special ship was commissioned, named “H.M.S. Friday.” They laid her keel on a Friday, launched her on a Friday, selected her crew on a Friday and hired a man named Jim Friday to be her captain. To top it off, H.M.S. Friday embarked on her maiden voyage on a Friday, and was never seen or heard from again.

So where did all this superstition of the number 13 come from and why is Friday the 13th considered to be so evil?

The superstition appears to stem from the events that took place on Friday, October 13, 1307. On that day, the Pope of the Roman Catholic church, along with the King of France, sentenced the “the Knights Templar (arguably a part of the Priory De Scion)” to death and ordered the torture and crucifixion of their leader.

The catastrophe was the decimation of the Knights Templar, the legendary order of “warrior monks” formed towards the end of the Christian Crusades to combat Islam. They were renowned as a fighting force for 200 years, but by the 1300s the order had grown so large and powerful it was perceived as a political threat by kings and popes alike and was brought down by a church-state conspiracy, as written by Katharine Kurtz in “Tales of the Knights Templar” (Warner Books: 1995):

“On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templar’s knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France. And the Order was found innocent elsewhere but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templar s suffered excruciating tortures intended to force ‘confessions,’ and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at the stake.”

What universal forces would have defamed this wonderful number 13? Throughout the streets of Paris, the Americas, and other parts of the world you can live in apartment #12, or even #11, but the number thirteen is feared to the point of deletion. What has made the people so afraid that flights are avoided, days are feared, and tragedy is expected? The culture perceives Friday the 13th to be synonymous with DEATH. WHat does all of this mean? The truth be known – 13 IS LIFE!

It IS the most magical number of them all! It is a number of PERFECTION. It is the number of LIFE, it is the number of TIME, it is the number of the ETERNAL PROMISE!


(Thirteen) + (Thirteen) = 26


Leonardo Fibonacci discovered a mathematical pattern found in the structure of LIFE. It is the mathematical pattern which creates seashells, flowers, plant stems. This formula is reflected throughout the breeding patterns of rabbits, bees, and even in the quantum multiplication of electrons. The formula for LIFE is the sum of two preceding numbers, starting with the ONE.

(1) + 1 + 2 + 3+ 5+8+13 (all life begins in the ONE)

Processional Time

Precession is the measurement of the Earth’s Vernal Point in an east to west direction across the sky. One Processional Year or cycle takes 26,000 normal years, it is the largest and most perfect
measurement of TIME. And is constructed of Twelve Great Processional Ages or Platonic Months of 2,150 Years, which determines the era of a particular epoch.

Annual Time

(ONE) + (Twelve) = 13 (life begins in the ONE).

1 Year is 12 months (cycles) = 13

(One ) A Processional Year + 12 Platonic Months = 13 or (26,000 years) = 13

One Zodiac + 12 Signs = 13

Eternal Time

JESUS + 12 Disciples = 13

But perhaps more than ever we can see here how special the number 13 actually is. That when you, a male, brings forth his 1 seed (sperm) of 13 chromosomes, and you mutually bond at the highest level with your female counterpart, and that she brings forth her 1 Ovum of 13 chromosomes, that when united together in union you produce a soul, or the 26 DNA zygote of life itself.

These are simple FACTS. Don’t believe the lies!! Everything was CREATED by DIVINE DECREE! Embrace the number, meditate upon it, and celebrate it! DO not fear the number 13 for it is the very nature of your being, it is what made YOU, it is what makes time click, and it may just be what will help SAVE YOU, because in it is the promise of ETERNAL LIFE – Let it be known that the #13 is indeed most GLORIOUS!.

So the next time you make a Top 10 list, instead make it a Top 13 list. If you enjoyed reading this piece of knowledge please Spread it far and wide. And what ever you do, DO NOT fear the #13!

The ultimate fear – our own death – is how our survival instinct makes us act and form beliefs. It’s also how we develop superstitions and usually, it’s not the object of our fear that hurts us, but our fear itself. Think of a reflex. You are exercising every single day and have learned to act mindfully and quickly. Someone throws a punch, a ball or a pen at you and the way you react is the way you’ll be affected by it. Or not react, which is also a reaction but in an abstract sense. I think the speed of our mental reflexes is wit, which is the opposite of superstition and dissolves obsession. Think of 13 dangerous weapons. Only one is enough to get you killed if used with precision. Think of 13 tequila shots. Only one is enough to get arrested for DUI. There used to be a time when I’d pretend to hit someone because I moved quickly, but never touched the person I pretended to hit. Their reactions were inadequate and they’d hit themselves with their own reflexes. It’s the same with superstition and unquestionable beliefs and morals.

When I was 13 I had a ball chain necklace that I thought was the shit. Now, double that number and it’s 26, which is how old I am currently. I don’t have that ball chain necklace anymore. The moral of the story is 13+13/2=13.
