### Season 2 - Update 22

Here are the updates for episodes 19-23. The blog will be active regularly again during all of season 3 as usual! Sorry for the long summer hiatus. Thank you for all of the e-mails that help with finding more references. Over the summer I had to catch up with over 500 e-mails from you guys. OUCH!

- In Live Together, Die Alone, the statue has 4 toes. [Thank you Ardroth]

**16**

- In Two For The Road, Christian turns on the car radio at 5:29. 5 + 2 + 9 = 16.

**23**

- In S.O.S., Bernard takes Rose to Isaac Uluru to be healed. He was born in 1949. 1 + 9 + 4 + 9 = 23.

**42**

**MIXED**

If you add the numbers together

4 + 8 + 15 + 16+ 23 + 42 = 108

108 is the number of minutes that pass before the button must be pushed.

Factor 108 to prime numbers and we get a series of multiple

2,3,5,7, and 23

add 2 + 3+ 5+ 7 = 17 a prime number

add 17+ 23 = 51 which factors back to 17 and 3.

factor 108 and we get another 2 and an additional prime number, 11.

add the found prime numbers together and we get 98, factor this down to prime numbers and we get another missing number from the sequence, 19.

The only prime number in the sequence

2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23 that ends up being missing is 13. add these prime numbers together and we get once more: 108.

Wrong, all the Prime numbers from 2-to-23 (being2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23) don't add up to 108 as was put before my comment but 100 so no relevance at all. x

Regarding your 5:29 thing. It seems a bit random to add these numbers up and say, "ah, that equals 16".

I mean, if I just pick another number at random, say, 19, then I could say that 5x2+9 is 19.

It seems to me that you're trying to search for coincidences, and finding them when they're not really there. I bet if you searched through Lost for mention of the very boring number 19 (not in this fabled 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 sequence), you'd find that number all over the place as well.

these numbers are what bring the very foundations of life together, each equaly inportant. with out one of the numbers can human LIFE exist?

my phone number is 48151623 that is freaky initt as i am 42 years old

That's just GREAT use of the word "sum".

Nice post, if not for you I would never pay attention to these numbers myself! That was so interesting to read!

Interesting calculations, but I just kind of enjoyed the drama.

Wrong, all the Prime numbers from 2-to-23 (being2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23) don't add up to 108 as was put before my comment but 100 so no relevance at all.
