2 plus 3 equals 5.
Five is the Roman numeral V.
Hold up your fingers in the V for victory or peace sign, and your 2 fingers spread upward while the other 3 fingers bow down together.
V on the Periodic Table has the atomic number 23. This element, Vanadium, was named by the Swedish chemist Nils Gabriel Sefström from the Old Norse word Vanadís, which is another name for the Norse goddess of beauty and fertility, Freyja.
Vanadium is in the anion Amavadin found in the psychedelic mushroom Amanita muscaria, which looks like the typical toadstool you’d see in the Smurfs. Amanita muscaria is commonly referred to as ‘fly agaric.’ The effects of fly agaric intoxication have been described as both sedative-hypnotic and dissociative, and both macropsia and micropsia have been reported. This very well may have been the inspiration for the effect of mushroom-consumption in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
The shamans of western Siberia used fly agaric to achieve trance when they wanted to skip prolonged drumming and dancing. The Siberian shamans of the east became filters, consuming the mushrooms so others that would drink his psychoactive piss could have the negative side-effects like sweating and twitching minimized.
Philologist John Marco Allegro believed that early Christian theology sprung from the entheogenic consumption of A. muscaria. In other words, Jesus was a shroom. If prayer is simply talking to oneself, then aren’t we the Gods?
“Reality” is a Rorschach test, and your identity is your biggest trance.
“You” are really 23 chromosomal pairs sprinting to stand still, jettisoning body after body across time in a vain quest for immortality. So, just in case, never have sex with someone you wouldn’t want to actually be.

WTC: W = 23rd letter of this alphabet. The symbol for that letter is two points down and three points up, T = 20th, C = 3rd; T + C = 23.
The 23rd letter in the Greek alphabet is Psi. In quantum physics, the wave function is denoted by the Greek psi symbol. When Schrödinger developed his famous wave equation, it was concluded that the wave function depicted probabilities, not energy.
Did the collapse of the wave function occur before Schrödinger made his observation about it?
