The first thing I note is that this number is the number of fish
Jesus' disciples caught when they put their nets on the other side of
the boat as Jesus instructed. What's so special about that number?
It's been discussed here before. Here's a link to some interesting
properties of the number:
> A Himalayan monastery reckoned time by a calendar with a year divided into
> 153 parts called gongs. Every gong, a monk would strike the temple gong.
> The lama was asked about this method of time-keeping. He explained that
> seeing M months transpire after N gongs would portend that N months would
> transpire after M years. In effect, the gong-lunar cycle is analogous to
> luni-solar cycle. What is the mean year of this calendar?
