Allow me to introduce you to the number 47.
47, reader. Reader, 47.
In case you haven’t heard, this is no ordinary number. The number 47 is the quintessential number of the universe. Like every fantasy hero, it has an arch-nemesis–the evil number 52.
With strength, courage, and awesomenesses, the number 47 battles for the cause of right, stopping the evil schemes of the number 52 wherever they are to be found. Those extra cards in your deck? The card that went missing? For this we bless the number 47, campaigning fearlessly for truth, justice, and quintessential randomness.
The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond present the number 47 as an icon. It hallmarks the subtle, profound under-meaning of the absurdity of life. It embraces the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. We believe that the number 47, if not quite the most remarkable phenomenon in the universe, is certainly the most remarkable phenomenon in the universe.
This website is not about the number 47. For that, you really should investigate the 47 Society. But you will find the number 47 lurking on this website. And it has a way of appearing now and then in John’s writings.
After all, the number 47 is everywhere. You only have to look for it.
