History of Numerology
The history of Numerology isn't that clear, to our great regret. It's commonly known by lots of numerologists to originate from Egypt and Babylon. The first references lead us back to those periods. Chaldean system nowadays exists due to the impact of Hebrews. Ancient Southern Europe, Asian countries and Greece and Macedonian regions lived by Numerological knowledge more than thousand years ago. However, in professional circles and commonly the initiator of Numerology in a modern sense of this word is nobody, but Pythagoras.
Pythagoras was born in Ancient Greece in 590 BC (according to modern estimations) and was way ahead of his time. Of course, you've heard of him as a genius in geometry, inventor of many theories and laws that are still learned by students all over the world nowadays. Nowadays, the details of his biography are hidden by the great gap of time.
We know for sure only that he is a founder of secret organization in Crotone, Italy- "Semi-circle", where he shared his knowledge in mathematics, astronomy, and culture.
He was a great person of all times. Mathematics for him wasn't a regular science, he looked at it in other way. He saw the core of this science, understood the basic principle in a more profound way. He was sure that mathematical concepts and ideas can be employed in a real world. He imagined the world around expressed in numbers. He was the one who started Numerology and gave a push to Greek philosophers who developed and expanded this knowledge later.
Pythagoras can surely be called a "father of Numerology", he was the first to bring this idea to the world and his example served as a huge inspiration for further progress of Numerology that can be found here.
Numerology is known all over the world, millions of people use it as a guide through their life. Even though it is a metaphysical science, it is the hardest one, as it takes a lot of calculations and manipulations. In modern times people use it in order to understand the world around, the world inside and to comprehend the world of the other person.
