What is Numerology?
Numerology is the universal language of numbers. By breaking down the
patterns of the universe into numbers, we are able to uncover information about
the world as a whole, as well as every individual.
The western form of Numerology, the Pythagorian system, is among the most
enduring and popular of all self-help methods ever created. The Chinese,
Japanese, Greek, Hebrews, Egyptians, Phoenicians, early Christians, Mayans
and Incas all employed number systems to gain a deeper understanding of
themselves and the universe.
Pythagorian Numerology was organized by Greek philosopher and
mathematician Pythagoras, who combined the mathematical disciplines of the
Arabic, Druid, Phoenician, Egyptian and Essene sciences. Since then, it has
continued to evolve.
So is Numerology all about Science?
Numerology is the science of numbers,
but it only involves simple mathematics.
It's more about the personalities of each
number, and how each numbers traits
alter the flavor of your life depending on
where they appear in your personal
Numerology -- if they appear at all.
In the art of numerology, everything is broken down to basic, single-digit
numbers. Numbers are the language of nature, and each number holds a
specific meaning and significance.
Unlike Astrology or tarot, a person's birth name as-well-as their birth-date have
significant influences on their life path and personality. Calculating various
influential traits of a person is a straightforward process. This can be done
using our Life Path Calculator
Is there a meaning behind numbers?
For the Expression number analysis, each letter of a person's name is given a
numerical value from 1 - 9, then the numbers are added up and reduced to a
single digit number, except in cases where the name comes out to 11 or 22.
In the case of an 11 the person will have traits of an 11 in addition to (1 + 1 =
2) giving the person additional traits of a 2, and in the case of a 22 they will
also have traits of a 4 (2 + 2 = 4).
To calculate the Life Path number, which is based on the birth-date, you use
basic mathimatics and add up the numbers in the date and then reduce it. For
example Jan. 25, 1973 becomes: (Jan = 1) + (25 = 2 + 5 = 7) + (1973 = 1 + 9
+ 7 + 3 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2) = (1 + 7 + 2 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1) = 1.

Can we use numbers to predict the
Numerology is a self-help tool that can reveal much about your personal
character and your life as a whole. In many ways, Numerology can both predict
and not predict your future. While your Numerology cycles indicate the
opportunities and challenges, joys and pains that will arise throughout different
periods of your life, the way you choose to handle these occurrences at any
given moment is still up to you.
With the right theory, knowing one set of numbers can tell you what a
future set of numbers could be, MIT theoretical physicist Edward Farhi
says. "Physics is really the business of taking numbers, the values and
attributes of things, turning a crank, which is our theory, and arriving at
new numbers which predict what will happen in the future,"
For example, engineers can crank out numbers to predict where NASA's
New Horizons spacecraft will be in 2015 (somewhere around Pluto,) or
where the Cassini orbiter will be in 2017 (still checking out Saturn's
moons, if scientists have their way). But "It gets much more complicated
when we try to predict complicated things," Farhi said. "Really, what we're
talking about is where you draw the line."
