What Is Numerology ?

Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a count or measurement and life.

Numerology is any belief in divine, mystical or other special relationship between a number and some coinciding events. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs.

Numerology is an area of study and intellectual tradition that addresses the relationships between the hidden, philosophical, esoteric meaning of numbers and their manifestation in human life. The general aim of the practical numerology is to find out the life purpose of a specific human being, his or her true potential, and also to find the ways of revealing and developing that potential.

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

Numerology is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.
