The number 47 is one of the major spook markers for fake events & fake deaths. It may be a multi-pun: In modern English, “forty-seven” puns with “for-deceiving”. In Hebrew, the spelling ארבע שבע ˀrbˁ-šbˁ for “four-seven” puns with ערבא שועי ˁrbˀ-šwˁy for “guaranteed a fairy tale”, and with רבא שוא rbˀ-šwˀ for “deceptive death”.

English number “forty-seven” as a number “for-deceiving”

Pronouncing “forty-seven” as “for-deceiving” seems like a pretty lame pun, but we can confirm with all the other puns that spookery is all about lame puns. Another possibility may be pronouncing 4 as the French term “faux”, and 47 as “faux, deceiving”.

So the next time you are told that the “number of victims is 47 people”, or that the “court settlement is 47 million”, then you know that these numbers are really “for deceiving people”, even “for deceiving millions”.

Whatever the lame joke may be here, the number 47 enjoys particular popularity among the spooky elites. This “code 47” was mostly pioneered by the Star Trek series.

Joe Menosky graduated from Pomona College in 1979 and went on to become one of the story writers of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Menosky “infected” other Star Trek writers with an enthusiasm for the number 47. As a result, 47, its reverse 74, its multiples, or combinations of 47 occur in a large number of episodes of the program and its spin-offs Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise, usually in the form of dialogue, on-screen labels, or computer screens.

Semitic 47 punning with ˁrbˀ-šwˁ for “guaranteed a fairy tale”

There’s also a possible Semitic pun:

The word ארבע ˀrbˁ meaning “four” puns with ערבא ˁrbˀ for “guarantor” & “guarantee”.

The number 7 is given away by the fact that it occurs very often in fairy tales (7 dwarfs, goats, ravens): The 7 is written שבעי šbˁy, but the unvowelized root would be שבע šbˁ, often read shva. If you write’d the V with W instead of B, it’d become שוע šwˁ. And this spelling literally means “fairy tale” & “joke”.

The number 47 could therefore mark hoaxed events as a “guaranteed fairy tale” & “guaranteed joke”, assuring all insiders that nothing bad has really happened.

ערבא ˁrbˀ : surety, guarantor — Hebrew (Klein)

Semitic 47 punning with rbˀ-šwˀ for “fake death”

The Semitic numbers 4 and 7 loosely pun with the term רבא שוא rbˁ šwˀ reva shav, literally “lying down in deceit”, which could be a way to say “fake death”. This may be the reason why the number 47 is used often (but not always) in fake deaths.

רבא ; רבי rby; rbˀ : to lie down, die; to crouch, flee to a hiding place — Hebrew (Jastrow)

Hebrew 47 = mz punning with zmm for “plotting” & “scheming”

The Hebrew numerals for 47 are מז mz, which may be intended to be a pun with זמם zmm for “plotting” & “scheming”. The number has to be read backwards, but in Biblical times, a number could be written both ways: “forty-and-seven”, or “seven-and-forty”. It’s still not a very good pun.
