The Story of Numerology
Numerology is known as the ancient science of numbers. It has been used by indigenous tribes around the world for thousands of years and in most cultures a Numerologist was revered for their knowledge and wisdom. Cultures such as the Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Hebrews, Egyptians, Phoenicians, early Christians, Mayans and Incas all employed number systems to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the universe. The western form of Numerology, the Pythagorian system, is among the most enduring and popular of all self-help methods ever created. Pythagorian Numerology was founded by the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who combined the mathematical disciplines of the Arabic, Druid, Phoenician, Egyptian and Essene sciences. Since then, it has continued to evolve. It formed the spiritual basis for many secret societies, such as the Rosicrusians, Masons, Anthroposophists and others.
