Brief Look at What are Numbers
by Karen David
The big link/influence regarding the science of Numerology has beginning links to Pythagoras, who was born around 580 B.C. and who was considered a philosopher and our "Father of Mathematics". It has been said that Pythagoras believed that number is the law of the universe and unity is the law of God. It has been said that Pythagoras believed that numbers and figures are not the same. Figures measure quantity for example, numbers are principles. So, numbers are both figures and are also principles of real existence.
As an example, the number 1 as a principle represents the beginning, the initiation. It is self-individualizing, it can be leadership oriented as well. The number 3 for example, represents imagination, the creative principle and more. Numbers have a language and can describe/represent energy in and around us at any given time. Numbers, wherever found, can give information on what to expect under the circumstances. So, you see, you actually can look to numbers and their meanings as tools of awareness to help you on your journey both spiritually and practically, and as tools that can also help you concerning impelling trends as well.
