Numerology, the 23 Enigma-and Confirmation Bias

On February 23 a movie by Joel Schumacher, starring Jim Carrey, will be released entitled ‘The Number 23’. The story centers around a book given to the main character ( Carrey ) that seems to echo the events in his life and features prominently the phenomena that has come to be known as “The 23 Enigma”. The 23 enigma is the belief that every event is somehow related to the number 23. This is sometimes misattributed to the science of Numerology although, that is incorrect. Like the ‘9-11’ phenomenon wherein coincidences of the number 911 are charted and listed, the 23 enigma may be nothing more than a particular example of the confirmation bias in cognitive theory know as apophenia …

Numerology and Oracles: The Tablets of Fate

Closing your eyes, you reach down and spin the little booklet around on the table before you, taking care not to tear it; the paper won’t take rough handling. Finally stopping, you straighten it out before you. Stretching out your right arm, and letting your wrist hang loose, you point downward with your index finger, curling your other fingers back out of the way. Finally, eyes still closed, your lower your stiffened arm till your finger touches the paper; and opening your eyes you look at the small chart of jumbled numbers to see what you’ve chosen. ===> History of the Tablets The “Tablets of Fate” are an oracle first produced as chap-books in the late 17th century. Chap-books were …

Numerology’s Turning Points – Significant Events in Your Life

All of us have significant life changing events which happen to us. Numerology predicts four such events in your life, and tells us something about the nature of these Turning points. Turning points occur at regular intervals, with the first one falling between the ages of 27 and 36, and the remaining (3) turning points occurring on a nine year cycle from that point. These events begin on your birthday, and can last as much as a year. They may not even seem to be major events at the time they occur, but you will recognize them and their effects as you look back later in life. Calculating your Turning Points The timing of your Turning points is tied to …

What Is Tamil Numerology?

Tamil numerology, like other numerology systems (Chaldean, Pythagorean, etc.) was invented as a means by which to divine a person’s future, discover personality attributes, analyze the vibrational qualities of baby names, read the harmonic patterns of planets and their relationships with each other (astrology), thereby trying to make sense of the fabric of “reality” that we surround ourselves in. Through research, observation and documentation, numerologists have labored to gain a better understanding of the universe and our place in it. Tamil refers to the Indian state of Tamil Nada. Indian numerology states there are three numbers attached to every person… The first number is the psychic number. In Tamil numerology, the psychic number refers to the way you see yourself …

Numerology – New Age or Old Age

There are some people who believe numerology is a New Age science and therefore should be viewed with suspicion, even disquieting concern. Really? Actually, and quite factually, this is an erroneous belief totally unfounded in logic, reason and fact. Quite truthfully, numerology is as old as time itself, as old as creation itself, far older than man or any living thing. When we take a simple, clear and unbiased look into the reality of numerology, its truth is beyond question. Numerology is the science of numbers as they relate to life. Numbers are the most universal language of all. Numbers existed before man, before life. Numbers are simply labels for energy. They are, quite frankly, one of the purest forms …

How To Be A Spiritual Atheist

A spiritual atheist? Perhaps it’s a strange concept if you only think spirituality has to mean a belief in a god. Do the two have to be related? Many people think of the historical Buddha as a spiritual person, but most don’t know that he never expressed a belief in a god. He even discouraged his followers from such “speculation,” preferring that they work on their salvation in this world. Computer Spirituality Imagine a computer that has begun to get so complex and powerful that it starts to ask questions “outside the box.” It starts to become conscious. The first thing it would realize is that for all its computing capacity, it is still very limited. The humans who use …

How much of the Bible is literally true?

If you don’t believe the Bible literally, does that mean you must conclude that Christianity is based on biblical myth – literally fiction and stories passed down, generation to generation, from our ancient ancestors? That the only way to read the Bible is to read it metaphorically or metaphysically? Absolutely not. There’s great history recounted in the Bible. But the Bible is more than just history. It is a book of faith written by people who had undergone a transforming spiritual experience or who believed they had “seen” their God at work in their history. By “transforming” I mean an inward turning-around: things/ideas/values that were not important to you now are; those that were of great significance now aren’t. Biblical …

History of Astrology

Astrology is a type of divination based upon the idea that information about the future or about a person’s personality can be discovered through the examination of heavenly bodies such as stars, planets, the moon, comets etc. Astrology means the study that assumes and attempts to interpret the influence of heavenly bodies on human affairs. American Heritage Dictionary defines Astrology as the study of the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs. The practice of astrology was prevalent in the ancient times too. Some of the well-known civilizations of the world used this field extensively. For example, the ancient Chinese civilization, the Egyptian …

Hey, Get the Phone! (It’s for You!)

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I’m sure most, if not all, of you know this old story, but I’m going to tell it anyway. (Don’t stop me if you’ve heard it!) Two old prospectors are arguing over the best way to train a pack mule. The first one maintains that you have to be extra firm with a mule from the beginning–just to let him know who is boss right away. The other prospector maintains that you have to be gentle to win over a mule; you have to speak to him softly and sweetly. Then, he says, you can get the mule to do anything. The first prospector doesn’t believe a word of this and asks the second …

Help Others Find Inner Peace

People with pessimistic attitudes go through their lives fighting their thoughts and emotions every day. If they are rejected for a job position, they feel that they are not good enough to have any job. They start to think that everyone believes they are stupid, and the cycle of pessimism traps them into psychological immobility. In fact, everyone experiences rejection at some time during their lives, but when your mind focuses on the negative aspects of a situation, it is hard to find inner peace. The first step in finding inner peace is to think carefully about your goals. What are you trying to achieve, and what are you doing that will take you there? Can you realistically reach your …

Glimpses of Esoteric Christianity Part 5

The comprehension of Karma as revealed to the masses by Jesus is an improvement of the old interpretation and understanding of the principle of a previous dispensation of “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” as given to the Israelites by Moses. To illustrate this, the law does not cause blindness as a punishment to an individual if he had blinded someone in the past. It does, however, make him aware, in some manner, of the wrongness of his actions–even if it does take blinding him if other means fail to make him realize his error. Should the individual realize his mistake, sincerely repents and compensate, then the lesson would have been learnt; he would be putting …

Frauds in the Metaphysical Field Part 2

Another indication of the metaphysical fraud concerns the matter of apparel. Psychic cheaters normally wear robes and turbans and other fancy costumes to give the impression to people and their prospective clients that they are different, sacred or holy in some way. The moment we meet such psychics our gullible subconscious minds are influenced negatively unless we take the appropriate measures of protection among which is to rationalize the situation and to see through their deception. Let it be known that true modern saints or genuine metaphysicians, in general, do not wear apparel any different from the norm. They dress the way ordinary human beings dress taking into account environmental factors and culture. One of the most important principle to …

Finding G-d in the Details

It’s a common experience. In it’s pure ungrounded form, in your imagination, the vision can look vastly inspiring and easy to achieve.
