Numerology has been seeing greater popularity in recent years. In Numerology , it is basically a numbers game as we all have many numbers associated with us. We have phone numbers, birth dates, even our financial information is driven by numbers. More now than ever – technology, government, and religions all have numbers for us. When determining your personal numerology numbers you usually only need the exact date of birth and your legal full name as it appears on your birth certificate. You can calculate your numerological numbers from these two pieces of information.
The term numerology has been in use only since the early twentieth century but our personal journey with numbers goes back as far as recorded time. And our search for insight and guidance through numbers has impacted all of human history.
History And Numerology
St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote “Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.” Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.
Every religion, major and minor, is rife with the association of certain numbers and the search for mystical guidance. Powerful minds in this age of science have tipped their hats to numerology.
British mathematician I. J. Good wrote:
There have been a few examples of numerology that have led to theories that transformed society: see the mention of Kirchhoff and Balmer in Good (1962, p. 316) … and one can well include Kepler on account of his third law. It would be fair enough to say that numerology was the origin of the theories of electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, gravitation…. So I intend no disparagement when I describe a formula as numerological.
When a numerological formula is proposed, then we may ask whether it is correct. … I think an appropriate definition of correctness is that the formula has a good explanation, in a Platonic sense, that is, the explanation could be based on a good theory that is not yet known but ‘exists’ in the universe of possible reasonable ideas.
Numerology can give you the means to understand and control these influences.
