The History of Numerology

The History of Numerology

PostAuthor: Tylluan » Sun Dec 12, 2010 2:35 pm

Pythagoras and Plato

Pythagoras was one of the early Numerologists and masters. He was a Greek mathematician and philosopher who taught his students to develop their intuition at his School of Mysteries in southern Italy around 600bc. Pythagoras believed that numbers were the 'essence of all life'.

Plato was a philosopher and was responsible for recording much of the information about Numerology that he learned from Pythagoras. This simple and powerful system was later passed down through common usage.

Other Systems

There are many different systems or traditions in Numerology. These systems vary but man has always used his predicament and collective circumstances to interpret the numbers according to the world in which he has lived, and lives, and according to his needs. For example, up to the middle of the 20th century many Numerologists used the system 1 to 7 and 7 was the number for completion. People died much younger in the old days and many did not live past the age of 70 (7). Seven was then the number for a priest, spiritual healer, or a mystic with special powers to perform ritual magic or heal the sick.

Today, humanity's needs have changed and are constantly changing, which is reflected in the numbers we use. There is more time to focus on desires and dreams and emotional well-being, rather than the physical survival. This is reflected in Numerology which today recognises the system based on 1 to 9 and 1 to 81 (9) etc.

Numerology also recognises Master or 'Mirror' numbers today, which are 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88 and 99. These intensify the lessons or influences from the individual number, and extreme qualities or gifts that can be used to help others.

Methods of Interpretation

Many cultures have used Numerology and their methods have been passed down and given modern interpretations and meanings by the people of today. For example, over the centuries Hindus have incorporated Numerology into their beliefs and superstitions and used it for prediction. Often they used the method called Divination - or the calculation of numbers to predict an exact time or outcome of events.

The ancient Tibetans also used methods of Divination, which were employed by their Oracles or Mystics who predicted the future, particularly for the State.

China still has its book of insight or prediction and this is called the I Ching or the Book of Changes. It was written about 5,000 years ago and is an ancient book of wisdom.

Numerology was also used in ancient Egypt. Numerologists have gained detailed information about life at that time by translating hieroglyphic symbols. Numerology was also used statistically when the great mathematicians designed the pyramids, using numerological measurements in symmetry with the rays of the sun.

The ancient Greeks used a method of Numerology called Sacred Geometry. In Sacred Geometry shapes such as circles, squares, triangles etc are used to determine the number they represent within an area governed by a symbol. This method was used to count grain, by simply glancing at its shape (or geometry) it was easy to determine how much grain was available.

The Kabbalah is the Hebrew book based on esoteric understanding of the Bible, which uses the alphabet (based on the phonetic sounds) to find information about past, present and future for an individual from the names given at birth. These letters are transcribed into numbers and from that insights are given. They designate odd numbers as masculine and active whilst even numbers are female and passive.
May your summers and winters be short, springs be mild and autumn reaping plentiful.
