I know many have asked this question of others, and surely of themselves ... can Numerology be for real, in fact, can any such subject hold a bigger truth?

I am a skeptic myself. I question and I analyze. I search for the truth ... I am a Seven to the letter. Is this mere coincidence, I often ask? I could simply say yes, pure statistical reasoning. I am one of those that are on the far right of the "how well does this describe you" statistical bell curve. One of those for whom Numerology, much like Astrology, is nearly dead on accurate. I am one of those for whom this system, a system that can at best be called a pseudo-science by most, fits me like a glove ... simply by pure chance.

My other thought ... there is more to this than coincidence, and perhaps it is those that do not believe, do so because they are on the wrong path. Their eyes wide open yet blind to the truth. For reasons unknown. Is it Karma? Perhaps their souls haven't yet awakened ... or perhaps it is after all simply by pure chance. These systems that border the line between the real and the metaphysical have been around for thousands of years, and one can also argue that over the years, there just might be enough observational data to warrant that these systems do hold some truth to them.

Even as my mind assumes that ideas such as those presented by Numerology and Astrology are nothing more than wishful thinking, and the beliefs they represent are but mere illusions of my conscious and subconscious self, I come to ponder ... what is real after all? Is not that which we create within the infinite confines of our imagination real?

When I contemplate the vastness of our universe, and search within for not only the limits of the unimaginably large, but also the beginnings of the infinitesimally small, I reach a point where my mind comes to the conclusion that logic in itself cannot explain everything. There comes a point in our understanding of our very existence where the physical laws of this world begin to break down, where nothing is at it seems, and where paradoxes arise. It is at these extremes that the lines between science and philosophy begin to blur, and anything becomes possible.
