Have you ever stopped to really think about the term triskaidekaphobia or the idea that you think of 13 at all and the fact that it has this mystical theory behind it. Now, dont you think its possible it has some how created some sort of predisposion about the number for your imagination to play with. And the constant interaction or interest in it makes you more aware of it, all the time. IE: I watched the movie "the number 23" with Jim Carry and started seeing it around everywhere and a friend started teasing me about some other random number and was over obsessive about this random number, just to prove a point, and you know what we started seeing that random number all over the place. All im saying is rationalize it in your mind because your brain is a powerful tool, it often lets you see what you want to see, and interrestly enough this thought is no less existential than your own and I am some what of a consperacy theorist so I believe a lot of things are true that society doesnt want you to believe but all Im saying is that if you try to find reasoning for seeing the number thirteen you may just find that there is actually a logical reason for you to see it.

Even nown my phone even in convere when I log in to the internet the time was 5:13 !!! witch really made me to enter to this site. I thought all it's in my mind and I'm feeling as such because I'm only following this number. But NO!!! That's not the right answer..!! I my self have done a small exercise to find out the fact. and I got to know IT IS ONLY THE NUMBER 13 WITCH FOLLOWS ME ALL THE TIME..!!!

Funny, in Italy the number 13 is the luckiest number, while 17 is the unlucky number. That proves there is not such a thing as a lucky or unlucky number per se'. Just pick a number and build a story around it. :-)
