Mystical number seven

Perhaps the numeral seven is considered the most mystical of all numbers in numerology because it is the one number which cannot be divided evenly into the circle. This is always a dividend as the following chart illustrates:




Further references to the numeral seven:

The dividend from the division of the circle by the number seven is intriguingly close to the outer angle of the Great Pyramid: 51 degrees and 51 minutes.

The mystical nature of Pi: The number 22 is considered symbolic of a complete circle, or the circle, because this is reflected by the twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet, the twenty-two keys in the Major Arcana of the Tarot (Keys 1 – 21, plus the Fool) and indicating the full circle of experience. The function 22/7, one cycle of human experience divided by the spiritual Seven or Divinity within. This function is the value of Pi; or, the closet to it as can be expressed in whole digits. The discovery of Pi was a significant breakthrough in mathematics because its value is the relationship between the circumference of a circle and its radius and diameter; Pi presented humankind with a formula by which these things might be easily measured. A.G.H.


The Number Seven and the Circle

  • Divisibility with the Circle: The circle, with a total of 360 degrees, does not divide evenly by seven. This results in a fractional number (approximately 51.428571), which stands out as unique compared to other divisors of 360 that result in whole numbers.
  • Correlation with the Great Pyramid: The angle close to the dividend from dividing the circle by seven (51.428571 degrees) intriguingly aligns with the outer angle of the Great Pyramid, which is approximately 51 degrees and 51 minutes. This coincidence adds to the mystical allure of the number seven in historical and architectural contexts.


The Mystical Nature of Pi (π)

  • Symbolism of the Number 22: The number 22 holds symbolic significance in various traditions. It corresponds to the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet and the number of keys in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. These associations suggest a full circle of experience or completeness.
  • Pi as a Function of 22/7: The ratio of 22/7 is a well-known approximation of Pi (π), which is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. While not exact, 22/7 is close to the true value of Pi and represents an early attempt to understand this fundamental mathematical constant.
  • Significance of Pi: The discovery of Pi was a major milestone in mathematics, providing a crucial relationship between the circumference, radius, and diameter of a circle. Pi’s exact value is an infinite, non-repeating decimal, which has fascinated mathematicians and philosophers alike.


Broader Implications and Interpretations

  • Seven in Cultural and Spiritual Contexts: Beyond mathematics, the number seven appears frequently in religious texts, mythologies, and cultural traditions. It is often associated with completeness, perfection, or divinity.
  • Seven in Nature and Science: The number seven also appears in natural phenomena and scientific classifications, such as the seven colors of the rainbow or the seven notes in a musical scale, further enhancing its perceived significance.
