Rules #10: Numbers as Building Blocks of the Universe: Know the Code
Do You Know the Code?
"Number is the within of all things" (attributed to Pythagoras, Greek Philosopher) - it is one of the powerful keys which helps to unlock the mysteries and secrets of the universe.
Time and again in healing sessions, the topic of the meaning behind numbers surfaces. When I explain what the numbers mean there is always a deep significance for the person.
So if certain numbers "resonate" with you perhaps it is because they have lessons to teach you or because they are showing you something about who you already are.
ONE - MONAD - THE
"You cannot conceive of the many without the one" (Plato) because "all are but parts of one stupendous whole" (Alexander Pope). It is the "discovery and appreciation of the circle is our early glimpse into the wholeness, unity, and divine order of the universe". (Schneider)
TWO - DYAD - THE ENDLESS
"Our mind divides the world into heaven and earth, day and night, light and darkness, right and left, man and woman, I and you - and the more strongly we sense the separation between these two poles, the more powerfully do we also sense their power" in the birth of all. (Karl Menninger)
THREE - TRIAD - THE
"A whole is that which has a beginning, a middle, and an end" (Aristotle) for it is the "three that engenders all things" (Tao Te Ch'ing). It is the three that is "the formula of all creation" (Balzac). For it is the three that is the binding element that resolves the natural tension between opposite poles.
FOUR - TETRAD - THE SOLID
"Behold heaven and nature and all the elements - fire, air, water, and earth - for of these are all things created". (Thomas a Kempis) "The worlds originate so that truth may come and dwell there in" (Confucius) inside the eternal square of reliability (fire), equality (air), fairness (water), and solidity (earth).
FIVE - PENTAD - THE
"Avoid extremes - keep the Golden Mean" (Cleobulus of Lindus) which is five in the scale of one to nine. Five is the point of regeneration. The truth is "everyone wants to be associated with excellence - the five pointed star's appeal emerges in the ceremonious respect accorded to stars on flags". (Schneider)
SIX - HEXAD - THE HEX
"And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good it was the sixth day. Thus were finished the heavens and earth and all their host". (Genesis 1). "Hexagons appear endlessly in human inventions, providing the greatest structure-function-order". (Schneider)
SEVEN - HEPTAD - THE
"Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars" (Proverbs) which are the seven energy chakras. These energy chakras are the portals by which paradise - the Energy of God - enters your body-mind. Seven sided objects are the only ones where the sides can never be equal... the perfect imbalance.
EIGHT - OCTAD - THE
"The noble Eightfold way is: right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration". (Buddha) It is the eight sided octagon that brings perfect symmetry and balance to energy of space in the Ba'gua of Feng Shui (the Chinese art of placement).
NINE - ENNEAD - THE
POINTS OF POWER
"Nine flows around the other numbers in the Ten like an ocean". (Nichomachus) Nine is "the horizon which lies at the edge of the shore before the boundless ocean of numbers that repeat in endless cycles - the principles of the first nine digits". (Schneider) Nine is truly the final frontier.
TEN - DECAD - INTO THE
"Leaving the old, both worlds at once 10 views: it stands upon the threshold of the new". (Waller) It is ten that is the gateway to the universe.
