Is 69 the new 42?

69th British Academy Film Awards

Daniel Radcliffe born 23/7/89

The 69th British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, will be held on 14 February 2016 (Valentine's Day) at the Royal Opera House in London, to honour the best British and international contributions to film in 2015.
Tarot card #15? 2015?
I wrote about the 69th BAFTAs in my last post about the Oscars, but I thought they needed a stand alone post to point out the coincidences surrounding them.
I think We Are Going to See Some Serious S#it When This Baby Hits 88;-)
First of all, the nominees for the 69th BAFTAs were announced on 
8 January 2016 by Stephen Fry and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
In June 2011, Mbatha-Raw was cast as the female lead in the Fox pilot Touch opposite Kiefer Sutherland.
"Touch" the Deadman's Hand Coincidence
Released 8 January 2016. Recorded 2014–15.
January 8th was David Bowie's 69th birthday and the day that Bowie's last album Blackstar was released.

The BAFTAs will be hosted on the night by Stephen Fry, who narrated The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy film and also the audio books.
Alan Rickman, who played Snape in the Harry Potter films and passed away days after David Bowie at the same age 69, also did the voice for Marv the depressed robot in the same  
The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy film as Stephen Fry.
42 is the meaning of life...
Warwick Davis born 2/3/70 (as Americans write the date)
And Warwick Davis is the actor who is actually inside Marv during the film.

Another thing I find amusing is that Dan Radcliffe, Warwick Davis and Alan Rickman were all in the Harry Potter movies together and that the number 237 can be seen in the birth-dates of both Dan Radcliffe (23/7/89 ... written the British way) and Warwick Davis (2/3/70 (as Americans write the date).
237 is the room number in the movie The Shining that Kubrick changed from Stephen King's room number of 217 in King's novel  
The Shining.
Interesting side-note, King turns 69 this year.
Dan Radcliffe is the star of the Joe Hill (King) story Horns which was made into a movie.
David Bowie's song Heroes was featured in the Daniel Radcliffe horror fantasy film, Horns, as well.
Joe Hill King was Stephen's little boy to whom King dedicated his novel The Shining.

In the movie Room 
723 it was speculated that Kubrick changed the number of the room in the movie version as a nod to the approximate distance of the earth to the moon (237,000 miles).
Oddly enough, David Bowie's son Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones made his directorial debut with a film called Moon.

Ironically, Douglas Adams, the author of   
The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy writes in his last novel that he was working on when he died in 2001 that the best dream day out he can remember in his life was seeing Kubrick's  
2001: A Space Oddyessy at the cinema in 1968.
Douglas Noel Adams (11 March 1952 – 11 May 2001)
Even Adams tombstone looks monolithic.
And Bowie did pass away in 2016: The Year of the Monkey, also on the subject of monolithic things, Kubrick, DNA and death.
And isn't Kubrick buried under a Monkey Puzzle tree on his estate?-)
Douglas Adams, 42, 2001 and 237
It was interesting that the other person besides Stephen Fry to read out the nominees for the BAFTAs on Bowie's birthday was a women with the name of Gugu Mbatha-RAW.
Because RAW, or Robert Anton Wilson points to Chapter 69,
"The Way to Succeed—and the Way to Suck Eggs!" 
(sucking seed and sucking eggs referring to mutual oral sex) of Crowley's Book of Lies as being the secret that got him into the 
Ordo Templi Orientis, while Crowley's book De Arte Mgicaa names Chapter 36"The Star Sapphire", a ritual related chapter.
 "The Star Ruby is a ritual written by Aleister Crowley who described it as a “new and more elaborate version of the 
Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.” 
Built up from the traditional Lesser Pentagram Ritual of the 
Golden Dawn, while similar in some aspects, the Star Ruby also has many significant differences in its structure; for example, using Greek instead of Hebrew intonations; similarly, while its predecessor is suitable for both invoking and banishing elemental forces, the Star Ruby is exclusively a banishing ritual."
The Star Sapphire is an official ritual of the A.'.A.'.
In his Confessions, Crowley discusses how the book was to lead to his joining Ordo Templi Orientis. He wrote each chapter at lunch or dinner "by the aid of Dionysos," with one chapter that was especially troubling. He eventually was able to get it written after much effort, but he remained dissatisfied and angry with it. Not too long after it had been published, he was visited by Theodor Reuss, then head of the order.

[Reuss] said that since I was acquainted with the supreme secret of the Order, I must be allowed the IX° and obligated in regard to it. I protested that I knew no such secret. He said, "But you have printed it in the plainest language." I said that I could not have done so because I did not know it. He went to the bookshelves and, taking out a copy of The Book of Lies, pointed to a passage in the despised chapter. It instantly flashed upon me. The entire symbolism, not only of freemasonry but of many other traditions, blazed upon my spiritual vision. From that moment the O.T.O. assumed its proper importance in my mind. I understood that I held in my hands the key to the future progress of humanity.
Aleister Crowley sometimes said that this could not have happened the way he remembered it, since The Book of Lies had not yet come out when he joined the O.T.O. As previously mentioned, however, Wilson claims that the book lies about its publication date.
Card #17?  20(17)?
Released 23 September 1977
 So, which book is fibbing about the number of all numbers in the universe?
Crowley's, RAW's, or Adams' book?
Since I was born on September 23rd, which was the date Bowie released his single Heroes and
Robert Anton Wilson always used to go on about the 23 enigma I'd like to think that the real number that can answer the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is the number 23.
 And let's not forget Dan Radcliffe was born on a 23 also;-)


  1. Great work. And in the movie The Shining Danny is wearing a sweater with Apollo 11 on it. To the moon.

  2. Lol very cool post. I'm 22 September myself. Been seeing a lot of 23 lately, especially the past few days. And good point Crow on the Apollo 11, I forgot about that. If this isn't planned, but rather shows some cosmic structure, I'd feel alright with that. It seems like we all chose the lives we incarnate in to. I really don't know, but I get the intuitive feeling this is true. Great post, whether it's a 'conspiracy' which drives this 42ology or 69isms or 22/23isticals or whether it is Divine. Very cool!
