It's the seventh today, so some unforeseen presence must have forced me to write this post about numerology.
Since according to numerologists, the number 7 is infinitely important in our lives and exerts tremendous influence.
Because spiritually and symbolically, it can be traced back to the beginning of creation.
Egyptians created the first ciphered numeral system around 3,400 BC. Then followed by the Greeks developing a system for representing numbers using letters in Ionian and Doric alphabets.
Numerology is all about assigning numbers to the letters of your name and birth date. Then figuring out what your lucky number, or significant number is.
Numbers, you see, have an inherent vibration.
Most numerologists glom on to Pythagoras as the father of numerology.
Any ancient Greek gives any subject a modicum of credibility.
Certainly, the Pythagoreans were a cult with esoteric notions about the universe and numbers, including the notion of the harmony of the spheres.
In his 1997 book "Numerology: Or What Pythagoras Wrought," mathematician Underwood Dudley uses the term to discuss practitioners of the Elliott wave principle of stock market analysis.
I think numerology probably makes as much sense in the stock market as anything else.
Author J. K. Rowling is coming under some flack by using arithmancy, numerology in disguise, to teach Harry Potter sorcery.
If you get her impressionable readers into evil spells there's no telling what they can do.
The most delightful movie about numerology, and there haven't been that many, is "Athena" with Jane Powell, where she falls for Edmund Purdom, because both of their numbers add up.
(Any collector of obtuse ballads should listen to Jane singing, "Love Can Change the Stars.")
But it's probably too late to change this post.
One theory of why people attempt to seek answers through pseudosciences like numerology, tarot cards and astrology is that it's easier to blame outside forces for not getting what you want, than yourself.
"It's out of my control."
Or it can be used to spook people, in ascribing sinister implications to the Great Seal of America having 13 arrows, 13 leaves, and 13 stripes on the shield.
Tyromancy, derived from the Greek, turos (cheese) and manteia (divination) is the art of predicting the future by looking for omens in cheese.
You'll need a streaky cheese like Roquefort or Gorgonzola to make it work, if you want to set up shop.
Anyway, on this note, I will leave you to ponder these imponderables.
