consider numbers to be mystical.

Perhaps the easiest definition of numerology would be that numbers are mystified to find connections and coincidences between different events. This mystification may sometimes lead to lies and exaggerations as those who create numerological patterns ignore the things which do not match and check everything to find only matching elements. As you know, the one that searches, will always find.

However, you cannot ignore the fact that sometimes these coincidences make amazing patterns and may confuse even those who do not believe in luck etc.

Different cultures set different meanings for various numbers, some being alike, and some being totally different.
