A Short Introduction
How important are numbers really? In this computer age, you are a number. You have a social security number, a bank account number, a telephone number. The internet provider that allows you to view this site has assigned you a number. Numbers are used in commerce, science, prescriptions, recipes, trains, planes, cars. Pretty much everything in today’s world has been assigned either a number or a series of numbers.
As every civilization before it, ours is still seeking answers to questions which are eternal, questions which concern themselves with man’s fate. The overpowering scientific achievements of our times seem to have compounded these mysteries rather than explained them.
First expounded by the ancient Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, the whole concept that numbers provided answers, evolved into the science of numerology.
Modern numerology deals with today’s concept of the vibratory power of numbers and brings the ancient science up to date. It is based on observation, experience, and conclusions drawn consistently from the same set of circumstances. It is a branch of knowledge older than astrology. Its early concepts led to the beginnings of structured mathematics, a prime prerequisite for the study of the measurement and motion of the stars.
In numerology, all numbers above 9 are reduced to a single digit, some single digit from 1 to 9. This begins with the next higher number 10, which, by adding its component parts 1 + 0 = 1. To people who do not understand the symbolism of numbers, this method of synthesizing numbers seems to be absolutely arbitrary and to lead nowhere. But for a man who understands the unity of everything existing and who has the key to this unity, the method of theosophical addition has a profound meaning, for it resolves all diversity into fundamental laws which govern it and which are expressed in the numbers 1 – 9.
It is my hope that in this small website, you will find the “key” clearly and simply explained. The key opens the door to the meaning of your birth date, the significance of the cycles in your life, the meaning of your name, your purpose in life, and your past, your present, and your future.
The “key” may have been possessed by a greater percentage of the population of ancient Babylon than in our present world. Following Babylonian civilization, the key was rediscovered by Pythagoras, 582 BC to 507 BC. He was the one who coined the word philosophy. His tenets were that numbers set a limit to the unlimited, that numbers constitute the true nature of things, and that all concepts can be expressed in numbers.
The Bible, the Kabbalah, the Divine Comedy, and many serious, scholarly, and sometimes enigmatic works have been devoted in whole or in part to numbers. The Old Testament states clearly that the sacred number is known only to God:
And then shall righteous men of thy seed
be left in the number which is kept secret by me.
In modern numerology there are no secrets. Read and know all. So… believer or skeptic, read on, and find enlightenment.
