You don’t have to be good at mathematics to be a numerologist. Nor do you have to be an actuarial scientist. You only need a passion for numbers. Numbers are magical. Where did their shapes even come from in the first place? And why did Roman Numerals change into the kind of numbers with which we are now familiar? I imagine a different message probably needed sending as times modernised and it became more effective to use numbers, than numerals. Or – the world as it was known to be came to an end and when the new futures were spliced together to recreate the sheer wonder of what had been before there was a slight miscalculation that led to an unexpected over-convergence. When you have that kind of unexpected overlap in time the strangest things can happen. Like food falling from the sky and turning into fishes, for instance.

The odd numbers are my favourite numbers. Even numbers are fine when they come in pairs, otherwise they are best left to their own devices. Odd numbers have more zeitgeist, for example, than even numbers do. They embrace their sharp edges, their inconventional un-matchedness. Through natural selection, an odd number cannot be superstitious or obsessive-compulsive. They can, however, be incredibly particular when it comes to their presentation and their representation. You cannot get an odd number wrong. There is a reason that it is odd to begin with. Whether it is or isn’t a good reason is not the question. The question is whether or not the even numbers can count.

The Fibonacci Sequence is the mapping of an actual pattern, a wavelength clearly in motion, since for numbers there is no infinity. Neither is there an end in sight for a nautilus or a golden spiral. The ratio of one number to another – in that sequence – is perfect. And yes, perfect does exist. It has to in some dimensions. Like this one in which we currently find ourselves. For instance, if a parachute is not packed perfectly on earth, it will not open the right way for you when you need it to break your fall. It is best to understand that, if you will delegate to another the packing of your parachute.
