“A drama that blends science and spirituality to explore the hidden connections which bind together all of humanity. At the center of this distinctive new series is a widower and single father whose quest to reach his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son will shape the destiny of the entire planet.”

“Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a count or measurement and observed or perceived events. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs. Numerology and numerological divination by systems such as isopsephy were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics/pseudoscience by modern scientists.[1][2][3]

Today, numerology is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.”

“Modern numerology often contains aspects of a variety of ancient cultures and teachers, including Babylonia, Pythagoras and his followers (Greece, 6th century B.C.), astrological philosophy from Hellenistic Alexandria, early Christian mysticism, early Gnostics, the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah, The Hindu Vedas, the Chinese “Circle of the Dead”, Egyptian “Book of the Masters of the Secret House” (Ritual of the Dead).”

“There are no set definitions for the meaning of specific digits. Common examples include:

1. Individual. Aggressor. Self. Leadership Yang.

2. Balance. Union. Receptive. Partnership Yin.

3. Communication/interaction. Self expression. Innovative skills

4. Creation.

5. Action. Restlessness. Life experience

6. Home/family. Responsibility.

7. Thought/consciousness. Spirit

8. Power/sacrifice.

9. Highest level of changes.”

“There are many numerology systems which assign numerical value to the letters of an alphabet. Examples include the Abjad numerals in Arabic, the Hebrew numerals, Armenian numerals, and Greek numerals. The practice within Jewish tradition of assigning mystical meaning to words based on their numerical values, and on connections between words of equal value, is known as gematria.”

“Gematria or gimatria (Hebrew: גימטריה‎ gēmaṭriyā) is a system of assigning numerical value to a word or phrase, in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other, or bear some relation to the number itself as it may apply to a person’s age, the calendar year, or the like. It is likely that the term derives from the order of the Greek alphabet, gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet (gamma + tria). Alternatively, the word “gematria” is generally held to derive from Greek geōmetriā, “geometry”, which was used as a translation of gēmaṭriyā, though some scholars believe it to derive from Greek grammateia, rather; it’s possible that both words had an influence on the formation of the Hebrew word. It has been extant in English since the 17th century from translations of works by Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. Although ostensibly derived from Greek, it is largely used in Jewish texts, notably in those associated with the Kabbalah.

The best-known example of Gematria is the Hebrew word Chai (“life”), which is composed of two letters which (using the assignments in the Mispar gadol table shown below) add up to 18. This has made 18 a “lucky number” among Jews, and gifts in multiples of 18 are very common among Jews.

Some identify two forms of gematria: the “revealed” form, which is prevalent in many hermeneutic methods found throughout Rabbinic literature, and the “mystical” form, a largely Kabbalistic practice.

Though gematria is most often used to calculate the values of individual words, psukim (Biblical verses), Talmudical aphorisms, sentences from the standard Jewish prayers, personal, angelic and Godly names, and other religiously significant material, Kabbalists use them often for arbitrary phrases and, occasionally, for various languages. A few instances of gematria in Arabic, Spanish and Greek, spelled with the Hebrew letters, are mentioned in the works of Rabbi Abraham Abulafia; some Hasidic Rabbis also used it, though rarely, for Yiddish. However, the primary language for gematria calculations has always been and remains Hebrew and, to a lesser degree, Aramaic.”

“It’s largely held by Jewish leadership that the numerical dimensions of the temple are a “microcosm of creation … that God used to create the Olamot-Universes.”

“Cantonese frequently associate numbers with the following connotations (based on its sound), which may differ in other Chinese languages:

一 [jɐ́t]  – sure

二 [ji̭ː]  – easy 易 [ji̭ː]

三 [sáːm]  – live 生 [sáːŋ] but it can also be seen as a halved eight when using arabic numerals (3) (8) and so considered unlucky.

四 [sēi]  – considered unlucky since 4 is a homophone with the word for death or suffering 死 [sěi], yet in the Shanghainese, it is a homophone of water (水)and is considered lucky since water is associated with money.

五 [ŋ̬]  – the self, me, myself 吾 [ŋ̭], nothing, never 唔 [ŋ, m] in the Shanghainese, it is a homophone of fish (鱼)

六 [lùːk]  – easy and smooth, all the way

七 [tsʰɐ́t]  – a slang/vulgar word in Cantonese.

八 [pāːt]  – sudden fortune, prosperity 發 [fāːt]

九 [kɐ̌u]  – long in time 久 [kɐ̌u], enough 夠 [kɐ̄u] or a slang/vulgar word derived from dog 狗 [kɐ̌u] in Cantonese

Some “lucky number” combinations include:

99 – doubly long in time, hence eternal; used in the name of a popular Chinese American supermarket chain, 99 Ranch Market.

168 – many premium-pay telephone numbers in China begin with this number, which is considered lucky. It is also the name of a motel chain in China (Motel 168).

888 – Three times the prosperity, means “wealthy wealthy wealthy”.”

“Some astrologers believe that each number from 0 to 9 is ruled by a celestial body in our solar system.”
