The Link Between 13 and Bad Luck Originated in Ancient Egypt
Pivotal numeric symbols, such as the numbers 7, 11, 13, and 14, have long encoded profound spiritual wisdom and advanced science, including the links between karma and the hidden structure of our universe and resulting reality.

The association between the number 13 and bad luck flows directly from the symbolic tale of Isis and Osiris, where Osiris is killed. He is then cut into 14 pieces by his mortal enemy Set, who scatters them across Egypt. Isis, a winged "goddess" symbol similar to Maat, in her effort to resurrect her consort, can only find 13 pieces, the missing one being his lost "manhood." Isis, in her desire to save him, constructs a replacement pillar, out of gold. Thereby, she symbolically replaces his lost masculine desires with feminine desires and motivations, as symbolized by the golden pillar, ergo the golden rule. This symbolic parable also touches upon what many now erroneously refer to as "the sacred feminine."
Ancient Egyptian wisdom and philosophy were consistently dualistic because that is the true nature of our universe and reality. Gender symbolism was merely one form used to represent dualism. In ancient wisdom and "the mysteries", females generally symbolized the feminine, which in turn symbolized the positive and good (truth, wisdom, humility, compassion, freewill, justice, etc.). On the other hand, males generally symbolized the masculine, which represented negative and evil.
Egyptian symbology was sophisticated, nuanced, and multi-level, though. A prime example is the image of the Ibis-headed Thoth, the consort of the winged Maat, the "goddess" (feminine personification)
An important detail of the Isis and Osiris parable is that 13 is purposely associated with fatal bad luck, hence bad karma. The failure to understand the meaning of this symbolism has lead most to fear 13 as a bad omen, instead of viewing it as a symbol of hidden wisdom. In their symbolic myths, Osiris and Set constantly battled. Like most males, Osiris' "masculine ways" caused very bad karma that resulted in his death and mutilation. Most miss the importance of the number 14 in this tale because it has been deeply hidden over the millennia. Egyptian wisdom and symbology are redundantly dualistic and 14 is the sum of 7+7. This is important for multiple reasons.
First, the number 7 has been a pivotal numeric symbol throughout the ages. It can now be shown to be linked to the fact that there are 11 dimensions, the 4 of space-time and 7 hidden dimensions validated through the math of string/m theory. The Egyptians symbolically modeled this in numerous ways that prove they understood more than modern scientists about the hidden aspects of our universe. They also showed, through the symbolism associated with Maat (and ka-Maat), that they truly understood much of the advanced science behind karma, which operates with the seven hidden dimensions to affect all outcomes within space-time. Their understanding of the relationships between behavior and future outcomes was reflected in their philosophies, which merged advanced science and profound spiritual wisdom.
The number 14 directly alludes to deeply ancient wisdom about the dualism (7+7) within the seven hidden dimensions. In other words, moral dualism determines karma. The reason for encoding these details and passing the symbols and symbology down through the ages was to ensure the wisdom made it to our time, intact. These ancient symbologies and what they encode have come down to us through a much longer history than most have imagined possible. A very long line of ancient sage-scientists ensured that the integration of profound spiritual wisdom and advanced science, forged during a much earlier cycle of human civilization, would eventually be available to be understood by us, at a very specific time.
The focal point of that wisdom is a simple dual outline called the Doctrine of Two Spirits. It is divided into 14 lines of attributes, 7 good and 7 evil and has been symbolized in numerous ways throughout the millennia. Two of the most widely known are Mose's "two tables (lists) of stone" (wisdom), and the Emerald (spiritual wisdom) Tables (tablets...)
