So, it’s Friday the 13th again, which got me thinking the number 13.

13 is the atomic number for aluminum, incidentally. I see a lot of shredded aluminum along Newtown Creek, but aluminum foil is ubiquitous. Turns out that aluminum is actually the third most abundant element on the earth, after oxygen and silicon. That’s kind of interesting, no?

How about the fact that Aluminum production consumes roughly 5% of the electricity generated in the United States?

Does the pyrophoric nature of a lot of the aluminum based compounds interest? Pyrophoric means that the metallic compounds spontaneously combust on contact with the air – How cool, and unlucky, is that? Bloof!

I dunno, maybe I’m a little crazy about this Friday the 13th aluminum connection. Gotta go get me a tin foil hat to try and keep Obama and the Freemasons out of my head before they institute Sharia law between my ears.

In a tarot card deck, XIII is the card of Death. 13 is also kind of a lucky number for the ole U.S. of A.

The United States of America was created from thirteen British colonies. Thirteen stars are found on the Great Seal of the United States and there are thirteen stripes on the American flag as well. The deep connections to Freemasonry on the part of our founding fathers contributes to the “13” motif found in our national heraldry, presumptively. The masons love number games, and 13 is an interesting number in European esoteric traditions like Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism.

Saying that, Apollo 13 did not perform as expected, so it’s not necessarily that lucky a number for Uncle Sam.

Speaking of deep space, Metatron’s Cube is composed of 13 Platonic solids.

  1. Hi, I’m a student at Baruch College and currently doing an article about CSO. I feel that your studies and research make you a great source. Would you mind giving me your email so I can send a couple of questions for you to answer?

    Your input would be greatly appreciated.
