@dyslexia,
I've no idea, but I was often thinking "things come in threes" as a kid. Probably an inculcation from my irish background of the trinity, oh, and sometime later, an irish whiskey called Powers Three Swallows. (Kidding, that was years later.)

Might have to do with culture. In garden design, my japanese mentor was keen on groupings of five or seven, or sometimes three, but that could all relate to naturalistic design (as opposed to grid) and not some other reason.

@dyslexia,
No, of course not, that's an exterior interference (or something like that).

No, wait, that's my nose..

Using the same symbols for numbers and letters was common in the ancient world and not just amongst Romans.

There is a claim that entire words and phrases had numerical interpretations with similar ideas being represented by related numeric sequences:

The claim is that this proves God's authorship of the Bible books. My own belief is that man may have been capable of such feats in antediluvian times; I would agree with the authors that he no longer is.

3 is so lucky, what with being beyond the physical.

1 and 2 enjoy the company.

@laughoutlood,
ALL numbers are metaphysical constructs. I mean, there just isn't any sort of a store you can walk into and buy a six or a seven....

In 1972 I took a course concerned with ESP, among other things.
It was an offshoot of The Silva Mind Control Course (does anyone know of that course ?).
It was a good place to meet chicks on Madison Ave. & 54th Street.
We coud and did go back n re-take it for free, and fraternize.

There was a young lad there, a NYC High School Science teacher,
who impressed me with the brilliance of his mind; he was good in argument.

Subsequently, he gave a lecture on Numerlogy.
I was taken aback.
The guy had a discernably bright mind; how coud he claim
that there were any merit to the idea that reducing your name
to its mathematical values can show any relationships to events
of your life ???

I wanted to see how anyone coud possibly argue that.
In his lectures, he gave some formulas to his audience
to analyse our names in relation to our life experiences
and when significant events occurred. Thay blew my mind;
a lot of weird co-incidences. More of his formulas co-incided
than missed. I can 't explain it; at least semi-weird.

That is supposed to be a special number, master number.

The idea was that numbers that added to 11 or 22 were master numbers that did not get reduced further,
indicative of special powers, and abilities, far beyond those of mortal men,
attributable to knowledge acquired in earlier incarnations.
