The Mystical Number Seven!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Number 7 has for ages been regarded as the Number of mystery relating to the spiritual side of things. It may be remarked that all through the Bible and other sacred books, the seven, whenever mentioned, always stands in relation to the spiritual or mysterious God force, and has a curious significance in this sense whenever employed.
For a few instances of this, take the seven days (or cycles) of the creation as referred to in Genesis:

The seven heavens, so often referred to.
The seven thrones.
The seven seals.
The seven churches.

The seven days' march round the walls of Jericho, when, on the seventh day, the walls fell, before that mysterious God force symbolized in the number of seven. It is also remarkable that there are exactly seven generations from David to the birth of Christ. In Revelation we read of the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. Ezekiel speaks of The seven angels of the Lord that go to and fro through the whole earth, which is believed to be a reference to the magnetic influences of the seven creative planets which radiate through the earth.



Again, we have the seven Spirits referred to in the Egyptian religion.

The seven Devas of the Hindus' Bible.
The seven Angels of the Chaldeans.
The seven Amschaspands of Persian faith.
The seven Sephiroth of the Hebrew Cabala.
The seven Archangels of Revelation, etc. etc.

Let's take another look of this strange number. If we were to examine every class of occult teaching from the Hindu, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew, or modern school, whichever one may choose, in every case - and without a single exception - we will find that the quality of the number 7 stands for the expression of that mysterious God force in Nature that I referred to previously.

In the most ancient rules of occult philosophy we find the rule laid down that the number 7 is the only number capable of dividing the number the number of Eternity, and continuing in itself as long as the number representing Eternity lasts, and yet, at at every addition of itself producing the number 9, or in other words it produces the basic number on which all materialistic calculations are built and on which all human beings depend and the whole edifice of human thought finds expression.


EXAMPLE
The number 1 is the first number. It represents the First Cause, Creator, God or Spirit, call it as you like. A circle of the zero, 0, has always been take as the symbol of endlessness - otherwise Eternity. Place the 1 and the figure zero by its side, and you get the significant symbol of eternity such a figure as 1,000,000. Divide by the mystic number 7 and you get the number 142857.



7)1,000,000
-----------
142857.
Add as many zeros as you like, and keep on dividing by the 7, and you yourself may go on through all eternity and you can only get repetitions of the same 142857, which from time immemorial has been called the sacred number. Now add this number whenever you find it by natural addition, it will give you the figure 27, and as you have seen by the rule of natural addition described previously, you keep adding till only one number remains, to arrive at what is known as the root of the number. You add again 27 by natural addition, and a 2 plus 7 equals 9, or in other words, you get the full range of the first series of numbers on which all materialistic or human calculations can be built.



Now let's return to the symbolism of seven for a moment. You know, of course, that Buddha is always represented as sitting in the center of a Lotus. Let us examine, then, the secret of such a selection. It is not perhaps generally known that the 7 is reproduced in many strange ways in Nature herself, and that flowers that have not been crossed by intermingling with other flowers have their outside petals in the number of seven, but as flowers are so easily crossed with other varieties, and it is so difficult to find a pure type, Buddha took the Lotus, which never becomes crossed or loses its individuality, as the emblem of the religion he taught, because, first, its seven foundation petals are always in evidence, and further, the religion he taught was that the creative Spirit was the foundation and origin of all things, and thus again bore silent but unmistakable testimony to the creative action of the seven planets from which all religions have had their origin.

Long before man made his creeds, or civilizations their laws, the influence of these seven planets had become known on the earth. Out of the dark night of antiquity their light became law, and as far as we can penetrate, even to the very confines of prehistoric days, in all races, in all countries, we find the influence of the seven planets through all and in all.


Days of the Week
The seven days of the week have been the outcome of the influence of the seven creative planets and gave the names of the days of the week, in every land or clime. Take any nation you may choose, this fat remains the same, and is so expressed in almost every language, Chinese, Assyrian, Hindu, Egyptian, Hebrew, Greek, Latin, French, German, or English. In modern languages Monday or Moonsday in English becomes Montag in German or Lundi (Lune) in French, Lunes in Spanish, and so on until one comes to Saturday or Saturn's day, the day on which God ordered the Hebrews that no work should be done, and in giving them this command He said, It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever. And strange as it may seem, Saturday, year by year, in our modern civilization is becoming more and more a day of rest.

In connection with this thought, it is worthy of remark that Saturn, the last planet in the series of the seven creative planets of our solar system, in all religions, Hebrew or otherwise, represents cessation, or rest from labor in another sense. In this strange example one can see the connection between the seven days of the week and the seven creative planets, and it throws a new light on the verse, God made the sun, moon and stars and appointed them for signs and for seasons and for days and for years. Even Mr. Maunder, the eminent author of so many works on astronomy, calls attention to this strange division of the week into seven days when he says in his Astronomy of the Bible: "the period of seven days does not fit precisely into either months or seasons of the year. It is not a division of time that man would naturally adopt, it runs across all natural division of time," but this author, not seeing or perhaps knowing the great hidden truth contained in the number 7, worried only over the point, that it was not a division of time which man would naturally adopt.

But as everything on the earth and above the earth has its meaning, and especially its secret or soul meaning, its place, position, and number, in the order of things, which is the highest form of design, every day of the week, every hour of the day, and every minute of the hour, has both its meaning and number.

Numerology and Astrology are so retarded. :hurl:

It's cute that people think they can find meaning in symbols that we created for ourselves to think we could find meaning in.

Patterns exist in the universe, and we may apply symbols to them so that we can understand them better and talk about them and write about them. But those pattens aren't some mystical mystery for us to find some hidden meaning in.

Nothing has meaning. We only apply meaning to patterns we see because we're afraid of that fact.

Wow. That was depressing and melodramatic.

You may find no meaning in symbols and patterns, but that doesn't mean that someone else doesn't. It has nothing to do with FEAR of a MEANINGLESS world. It has more to do with curiosity and thought.

People that place faith in symbols and patterns are no different than those that put faith in isolation and ambiguity.

Go have a popsicle and cheer the fuck up, emo kid.

People who place faith in anything but themselves have the wrong idea. So yeah, they are no different.

:rofl:

Yeah, curiosity in understanding is great. It is fun to figure out puzzles based on symbols. Don't get me wrong. It is fun to try and figure out why Billy chooses the symbols he does to represent things.

This post just reminded me of astrology and numerology and those two subjects are both silly. They are a perpetuation and extension of Augurs and Psychics, which are also silly. Entertaining, sometimes, but nothing to be taken seriously.

But when they are taken seriously... :erm:
