Civilization in Numbers

From precedence, the individual is enabled by knowledge to practice wisdom, which requires benevolence and builds strength of character, in order to create beauty that attracts success and abundance toward the foundation of civilization.

Two-digit combinations are primarily additive. For example, 10 is individual of precedence, the building block of civilization. Repeated numbers, like 33, wisdom!, reinforce the significance like an exclamation point. The combination 69, the beauty of foundation, is also a symbol of romantic love; its reverse, 96, the foundation of beauty, is also a symbol of platonic love.

Three-digit combinations with repeated numbers are illustrations of basic principles. For example, the combination 747 is read as the epitome of the success of benevolence; its reverse, 474, is the epitome of the benevolence of success. The combination 444, my house number, is read as the epitome of benevolence. Combinations with repeated pairs, like 885, are read as epitomes of one thing favored over another. The combination 885 is the epitome of abundance favored over strength; 588 is read the same way. The combination 558 is the epitome of strength favored over abundance. The combination 666 is read as the epitome of beauty. Unlike ideas, there are no inherently bad numbers.

There are several ways to read combinations which are more complex. For example, 1212 can be read as two twelves, or as twelve twelves, or as 21 inside 12. Sequential combinations, like 2345, can be read as the logical progression between specific numbers. Of course, combinations can also have meanings unrelated to this number system. A combination may signify practically anything, such as an important date, a person, or a place. If you have special numbers, you already understand how this works.

The purpose of numerology is to add a simple, reliable and uplifting dynamic element to the internal conversation, not to decipher the world, guide one's life, or tell fortunes. Anything more elaborate than what I have briefly outlined is unnecessary. It can be used deliberately in a symbolic manner, as I do sometimes, but it can't be forced in the internal conversation. Number combinations appear spontaneously through a practically unlimited variety of sources, including clocks, license plates, phone numbers, receipts, and addresses. The significance is in the context. A number can be an acknowledgement or a recommendation. Most of the random number combinations one encounters are contextually meaningless. The most meaningful coincidences are surprises.

The language of random numbers is the only thing of value that I found in the spiritually misleading writing of Aleister Crowley. The words that he used to define the digits were derived from the original medieval Jewish source, and some of them needed to be updated for clarity and relevance. Numerology has been an actively evolving element in my internal conversation since I was 17 years old. My special numbers are the numbers of my birthdate: 9, 19, and 64.
