Creation as a Universal Intelligence Expressed in Numbers

The Mystical Influence of Numbers & Its Interpretation through Numerology

The science of numbers is NUMEROLOGY. So are statistics and algebra. But the gap is there. While numerology deals with divination and prediction and, as such, is related to astrology, palmistry, physiognomy and other occult learning branches, arithmetic, statistics, etc., it is pure science, dealing with numbers, yet with little prognosis. It is true that statistics, on the basis of historical factual evidence, helps one arrive at such inferences with respect to the future, but numerology deals solely with the supernatural effect of numbers on the events of a person or a nation's life.

The belief that numbers have something to do with an individual's life and career is mocked by those who do not believe in mysticism or in the occult power of numbers. They will also laugh at the notion that, based on the stars, planets and their movements, projections can be made. To them, there is no real sense to the different lines on the palm, the form of the hand, visions, and omens and their own unlimited and poorly defined ignorance, and superficial understanding masquerading as qualified learning. They are bound to simple superstitious practices and are, thus, undeserving of any interpretation. Yet on the basis of experience, the study of numerology rests. Seers and wise men of ancient civilizations have left the treasure house of wisdom, strengthened by millennia of experience, which cannot be quickly discarded or overlooked. This priceless body of knowledge and observation warrants further examination, study and critical analysis.

In the past, numerology has been dealt with. Relevant numbers were correlated with such powers in ancient Hindu or Vedic civilizations. Even today, on the front wall near the main entrance of Hindu business establishments, we notice the a square of nine numbers, painted with red vermilion. Placed in a certain order, these numbers are meant to bring good luck and a rise in prosperity. Generations have borne witness to this belief's truth. 

Horizontally, vertically or diagonally, from whichever hand you add, the number is still 15. Since there are four sides of a square, depending on which side of the square the top side is, there may be four methods of positioning the square. The internal layout will stay the same. However, the arrangement presented is the most suitable way of constructing this square for those living in the northern hemisphere, based on the most traditional approach practiced over the centuries. For those located in the southern hemisphere, the arrangement will be separate.

The Science of Periodicity 

The theory of numerology is periodicity science. The Light, the Moon, the planets, all of nature's rules generally follow those times. The planet takes 365 days, 6 hours, 9 minutes and 9.7 seconds to complete a single sidereal zodiac orbit around the Sun. 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds are the duration of the lunar month. Thus, approximately, every thirty days is the full moon day. Man is conditioned by the rules of periodicity, being part of the universe. In human beings, thus, periodicity in the heavens is also expressed. The menstrual cycle in women spans an average of 280 days and the gestation phase. Some kinds of fever, such as enteric fever, last for many days.

The idea of microcosm and macrocosm is the epitome of all the ancient systems of philosophy. The world is a macrocosm, and man is the universe's microcosm or epitome. Plato said that God geometrizes the universe. Man's destiny is set out in defined and systematic cycles. Patterns should then be identified, and on the basis of the known elements, the unknown element should be found. A student of geometry will measure the third angle if two angles of the triangle are identified. It would not be possible for a person unfamiliar with geometry to do so. It's that way for numbers. If the numbers that have played an important part in an individual's past existence are remembered, a numerologist understands the past trend. He is willing to extrapolate the blue print of the future and map it out. He is able to show the figures that in hypothetical activities will feature prominently. It would not be possible for a layman to do so; he is ignorant of the rules of periodicity and, thus, should not follow them in order to forecast the future.

Numerical Affinity and Significance 

We are mindful of pulses of sound. Tune a fork over a desk partially filled with water, to a pitch. It produces a tone and a sound if the wavelength is exact, but if the sound is of a different wavelength, no sound is audible. Or use the radio as an example. It reproduces the sound emitted from a single transmitter when the transmitter and radio wavelengths match exactly. The environment and the skies are full of all sorts of sounds emitted by multiple radio transmitters from different parts of the globe, and traveling through all wavelengths. Depending on a certain wavelength turned on on the antenna, we catch or tune in to the BBC or All India Radio. Likewise, numbers, on their own, are inanimate.

But there are strong reasons to assume that specific numbers react to specific wavelengths in the universe, generating tangible results in response. Still, here, for two reasons, we will eschew all hypotheses about wavelengths and numbers. First of all, to enunciate all the sciences of astrology and, in particular, the complex concepts which may be the focus of an independent study, but which alone cannot be compressed into this single work. Second, while the complex principles would be of benefit to the those who have studied, for those who want a practical reference, it would be too pedantic. For anyone interested in the study of numerology, this research is meant to be a practical reference. They want to be able to extend it to their own lives and to the lives of their peers and associates.

In human life, both figures have some meaning. While they can have places of similarities and differentiation, no two human beings are identical. In his drama Uttara Rama Charitam, a famous Sanskrit poet from the 7th century AD claimed that when two people have such specific points of affinity, they at first sight fall in love with each other regardless of their gender.

There are several clandestine variables that account for forces of attraction and repulsion. Numerology research is something that allows us to assess and appreciate the impact on our everyday lives that numbers will have. One of many influences affecting our desire, repulsion or mere indifference towards others is the affinity or lack of it among numbers, and it forms our behavior and experiences in this civilizational and social sense over the course of human life.

Let us take an individual's date of birth as the initial number to decide the affiliation or lack thereof of the entity to others. We're just going to confine ourselves to the birth date and remove the month and year of birth. This is sufficient to underplay the significance of the month and the year of birth. They are vital variables, no wonder. We will address one aspect at a time, for convenience.

We enunciate the concept of affinity between two persons who, depending on their date of birth, have the same specific number (leaving aside the month and the year of birth for the time being). We would first explain how to simplify all numbers to the simple number in order to explain the affinity between numbers, and therefore be individuals born on a certain date.

The Basic Numbers 

What are the numbers that are basic? Numbers 1 to 9 are referred to as the basic numbers since permutations and combinations of these basic numbers are just other numbers. In the simple numbers 1 to 9, we have not put 'zero, because zero means nothing. It means the absence of a number, a negative element, and not a positive one, if it means anything at all. Early philosophical dissertations in the Hindu Upanishads state that zero reflects God and the absence of creation—in reality, the absence of all. It is fullness without manifestation, the sublime state of Godhood that is inactive.

The basic numbers are 1 to 9 only. The process of reducing a large number to the basic one is as follows-Suppose you are asked to reduce to a basic number, the figure given below: 2356438971 

Add all these figures 2+3+5+6+4+3+8+9+7+1 = 48 

Again add the numbers constituting 48, i.e. 4+8=12 

Now add the numbers constituting 12, i.e. 1+2 s 3 

So the basic number of 2356438971 is 3. 

In order to reduce a large figure, we have to go on adding the digits which constitute the number, till we arrive at a number which is one of the basic numbers, i.e. numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9. These basic numbers remain as they are because they are single digit numbers. 

The process of reducing a number to a basic number arises only when the number is of more than one digit. Since there are not more than thirty-one days in any calendar month, we can reduce the two-digit numbers, i.e. numbers 10 to 31 to basic numbers. The single digit numbers, 1 to 9, remain as they are, as they are the basic numbers. 

1=1 | 2=2 |  3=3  | 4=4  | 5=5  | 6=6  | 7=7  | 8=8  | 9=9

10=1+0=1  |  11=1+1=2  |  12=1+2=3  |  13=1+3=4  |  14=1+4=5   | 15=1+5=6   | 16=1+6=7   | 17=1+7=8  18=1+8=9  |  19=1+9=10=1+0=1  | 20=2+0=2 

21=2+1=3  | 22=2+2=4  | 23=2+3=5  | 24=2+4=6  | 25=2+5=7  | 26=2+6=8  | 27=2+7=9  | 28=2+8=10=1 +0=1  | 29=2+9=111+1=2  | 30=3+0=3  | 31=3+1=4 

Since there are not more than 31 days in any month, we have, in the above example, not gone beyond 31. But the process of reducing a larger figure to a basic number has been explained. In numerology, when we speak of any person as: 

Number 1, it includes all persons born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th of any month. 

Number 2 includes all persons born on the  2nd, 11th, 20th or 29th  of any month. 

Number 3 includes or 30th of any month. 

Number 4 includes or 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st  of any month. 

Number 5 includes all persons born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd of any month. 

Number 6 includes all persons born on the 6th, 15th or 24th of any month. 

Number 7 includes all persons born on the 7th, 16th or 25th of any month. 

Number 8 includes all persons born on the 8th, 17th or 26th of any month. 

Number 9 includes all persons born on the 9th, 18th or 27th of any month. 

As there are only nine basic numbers, all people are divided into 9 groups. If people check up on the birth dates of their friends and acquaintances, they will be surprised at the affinity they have with a large number of persons belonging to the same group as themselves. 

This discussion would be incomplete if we do not add that these nine numbers have been further grouped together as follows, based on their affinity with other numbers. 

1. (a) 1 and 4 ii. 3, 6 and 9 iii. 5 iv. 8 

(b) 2 and 7 

Thus Number 1 people have an affinity with Number 1 people and number 1 dates, and with Number 4 persons and number 4 dates. Similarly, Number 4 people have an affinity with Number 4 persons and number 4 dates, and with Number 1 persons and number 1 dates. 

Number 2 persons have an affinity with Number 2 persons and number 2 dates, and with Number 7 persons and number 7 dates. Similarly, Number 7 people have an affinity with 

Number 7 persons and number 7 dates, and with Number 2 persons and number 2 dates. 

Numbers 1 and 4 also have affinity with Numbers 2 and 7 and vice versa. So Number 1 may have affinity in some measure with Numbers 2, 4 and 7; Number 2 may have affinity with Numbers 1, 4 and 7; Number 4 with Numbers I., 2 and 7, and Number 7 with Numbers I, 2 and 4. 

It is to illustrate this principle that we have not grouped I and 4 together as group (a) and 2 and 7 as group (h), but as two sub-groups under the same major group. 

Number 3 persons, primarily, have an affinity with Number 3persons and number 3 dates, and a secondary affinity with Number 6 and Number 9 persons, and number 6 and number 9 dates. 

Number 6 persons, likewise, have a primary affinity with Number 6 persons and number 6 dates, and a secondary affinity with Number 3 and Number 9 persons, and number 3 and number 9 dates. 

Also, Number 9 persons have a primary affinity with Number 9 people and number 9 dates, and a secondary affinity with Number 3 and Number 6 persons, and number 3 and 6 dates, Number 5 has no other number in its group and so, its affinity is limited to Number 5 persons and number 5 date. 

Similarly, Number 8 has no other number, and so, its affinity is also limited to Number person with number 8 dates. 

Determining the Real Date of Birth An aspect which. is important relates to determining; or fixing the real date of birth. In our normal lives and for civil and military purposes, the date changes at I 2 midnight. An eminent numerologist has advocated. that for purpose of fixing the number of a person, we should use the date of the noon preceding his birth. Thus. if a man was horn on 7th August, 1931 at 8 a.m., we should not take him as Number I because he was born on the 7th. Take him as Number 6 because the noon preceding his birth, fell on the 6th, 

We, however, differ from the above method. In the Hindu system, the date or the day of the week does not change at 12 midnight but at sunrise. The day is reckoned from one sun rise to the next sunrise. 

We have found better results by calculating the date of birth from sunrise to sunrise. Thus, according to this system, if a person is born at 1 a.m. on the night of the 23rd or the morning of 24th September, we shall take him to be Number 5 because 23=2+3=5 and not Number 6 because 24.2+4=6. For individuals born during the day or at night before 12 o'clock, there is no difficulty in fixing their number because numerologically, as well as by the calendar, their number would be the same. The question of whether to take the actual calendar date or the previous sunrise date, arises only in the case of those born after 12 midnight and before the next sunrise. We have given the Hindu view that the sunrise is a phenomenon heralding the commencement of the day. Changing the date at 12 midnight is merely a convention of convenience. Readers are requested to examine their past and experiment with the (future) dates and decide for themselves as to which number seems to be the most suitable. 

Using the Affinity Principle 

We shall now illustrate how to use this affinity of numbers in practical life. Let us take an example of a person who is Number 1, that is, he is born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th day of any month. 

i. The Number 1 person should examine how he fares on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th of each month. 

ii. He should also examine if his 1st, 10th, 19th, 28th, 37th, 46th, 55th, 64th, 73rd, and 82nd year were momentous.

iii. He should also examine how the series of: Number 2-2, 11, 20, 29, 38, 47, 56, 74th years, number 13, 22, 31, 40, 49, 58, 67, 76th years and number 7, 16, 25, 34, 43, 52, 61, 70, 79th years fared for him. 

The length of the day is calculated from the exact time of sunrise to the exact time of sunrise the next day. Since the exact time of sunrise varies from place to place and is different at different times of the year, it is important to check the exact time of sunrise for determining the birth date. 

For example, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, former Prime Minister of India, was born on 19th November, 1917. She was, therefore, a Number 1 person since 19,1+9,101+0=1. She contested for the office of prime ministers on 19th January (19 is again 1) and became the Prime Minister in her 49th year 49=44-9=13,>1+-3= number 4. In her 55th year, her triumph in the Indo-Pakistan War and liberation of Bangladesh placed her at the peak of popularity, and brought her unparalleled glory. This 55th year=5+5=10. > 1 +0=1 was also a number I year. Here is another case. A gentleman was born on 18th March, 1911. 18::- +-8=9. he had very little income to live on per month. In his 27th year (2+7=9), his cousin. who was a king, died. The gentleman became the maharaja of a big state which had a substantially large annual revenue. He was married in his 18th (1+8=9) year. The house he purchased in New Delhi was number 18,1+8= 9. The number of the car he used was number 18. And the date 9th of March, 1948, was very important and momentous, almost a turning point in his life. 

Many similar examples can be given to illustrate the principle of affinity. The next point of affinity is to find out whether a Number 1 person has a large number of friends among the I., 2, 4, or 7 groups. We have illustrated how to examine the dates and years in one's own life and the dates of birth of friends with respect to Number 1. It is not possible to give illustrations with regard to all numbers. 

After reviewing the anecdotes and occurrences in their life and in those of their colleagues, readers can figure out other illustrations. The simplest approach is to analyze the circumstances of one's own life and no one knows more about a person than the person himself. Both the events of their lives are not revealed by the best of friends. We would like to highlight one aspect when presenting the above instructions.

Numerology is just one of the variables that must be taken into consideration in a prognosis. There are other influences as well. Strengthened by the experience of countless years, the location of stars, major and minor cycles of celestial forces, palmistry, phrenology, physiognomy, and other sciences have developed concepts. Therefore, if the latter theory does not appear to be true in a forecast, it must not be assumed that the law itself is faulty, nor have we exhausted all the separate laws that will expose the patterns of the past, present and future if extended to birth dates. It is only after the readers have been through the whole field that all the rules will be able to be implemented.
