The extraordinary versus the ordinary

Cornelius Agrippa
Reality: we must define our terms. Provisionally I would say reality is relative to our level of consciousness, that is, to our ability to perceive it. Reality for a snail is not the same as reality for a man or woman. There would be no point in a snail defining reality because a snail does not have the capacity to define anything higher than the snail world. In the same way, human beings in the ordinary state in which we find ourselves cannot define reality, otherwise we limit God.

Numbers: who knows? Physicists find that the world is mathematical, or at least, they are constantly surprised that they are able to describe it very accurately in mathematical terms. This astonishment has been going on since Pythagoras discovered that music is numbers.

Me:
A very good point! Just a question:

Of course it´s a matter of perception. How can one tell the “ordinary” about the “exatraordinary”…?
This pursuit may feel at times as meaningful as teaching a snail the Music of The Stars.

What is numerology?

Richard:
As to me, numerology seems to be nothing but bullshit. It makes only sense within man’s thoughts. It’s only a projection of something we’d like to be reasonable. At least, it doesn’t do any harm …… so whoever feels an urge trying to find some reality in numerology should just do it.

Me:
“What I don´t see, doesn´t exist!” That´s what you basically say.

Whatever is not “common knowledge” and surpasses our ability to comprehend, is at first treated as fabrication or “bullshit”- to use a more blunt language. Of course, there is the easy way.

The more difficult way is to question what we know – and above all – WHAT WE DON´T
KNOW leaving open any possibility of diverse consideration.

I am not specifically versed in mathematics, in fact, not at all. I will just make a simple analogy.

If one had shown a logarithm for someone in the 16th century, this very idea would have appeared as sheer, even evil nonsense. Even your life could have been at stake if you showed it for the “inappropriate” person.

“Logarithms are commonplace in scientific formulae. They describe musical intervals, and appear in formulae counting prime numbers.

The binary logarithm uses base b = 2 and is prominent in computer science!!”

Without this binary logarithm I couldn´t write these words to you now, as computers and internet wouldn´t  exist. Furthermore:

“Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a number and some coinciding observed (or perceived) events. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs.

Numerology and numerological divination were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics or pseudoscience  by modern scientists.”

These are my consequential questions to you:

What if our modern scientists show to be in due time pseudoscientists, and what we call
pseudomathematics or pseudoscience is, in fact, REAL SCIENCE?

What do we really know about secret vibrations, about unknown sequences of numbers on which our very being – maybe even destiny? – derives from?

What is Matter if not a sequence of weird and ultimately unexplainable vibration-sequences that maybe can be caught in yet ineffable numbers…?

What if, we are no more than a pile of secret numbers organised in unfathomable ways…?

May be, we ought to ask Pythagoras “the pseudomathematician” who is one of the founder
of our western civilization.
