History of numerology

Numerology is considered one of the first forms of metaphysical reading and communication. In early times, people used numbers, marks, and writing methods to communicate, trade, and exchange ideas. It dates back to 4004 BC – Egypt and Babylon are recognized as the earliest recorded history of numerology. There is evidence of numerology dating back thousands of years in India, China, Italy, Greece and Japan.

There are different systems of numerology such as Pythagorean and Chaldean. My preference is Pythagoras, but I think all methods have a place.

The philosopher Pythagoras was born in Greece around 590 BC and was one of the best of his time. He was an important figure in the development of mathematics. When Pythagoras was about 50 years old he established a school that was a kind of secret society in Cortona, Italy. The society was called a semicircle and there taught classes in Mathematics, Astronomy and Music, open to both men and women.

Pythagoras thought that the entire universe could be expressed through numbers and created a system, which was expanded by other Greek philosophers. Although Pythagoras did not invent numerology, his theories took it to a new level, which is why he is often credited with being the father of numerology. Pythagoras lived to be a hundred years old. He died when his school was attacked and burned, most of his teachings were written after his death.

There is a wide gap between the Pythagorean years and the early 1900s, when a number of mystical authors began to write about the art of interpreting numbers. When Dr. Julia Stenton (born 1862) added her awareness to the art, the name “numerology” is attributed to the interpretive practice. Its popularity did not return until L. Dow Balliett published a series of books on the art of reading numbers between 1911 and 1917. In the 1930s Florence Campbell, another mystic, added to the writings on numerology.

As we enter the age of 2 from the year 2000, knowledge, acceptance and intuition are increasing. 2 is a peaceful number and on the positive side it represents love, harmony, partnerships and intuition. 0 in numerology is also a metaphysical intuitive number, which is why acceptance is growing especially with the number of magazines, television and radio programs in this area. Interestingly, the first black president of the United States, Barrack Obama, born on August 4, 1961, has a master vibration of 11/2, is here to help bring peace to the world, and his presidency occurred in the years 2000

Although many people dismiss numerology as a pseudoscience, it was taught and studied by some of the most respected mathematicians throughout history.
