Mystery of Numbers


On 24th November 2018, New Acropolis (Khar Branch) hosted a talk on “Pythagoras: Wizard of Numbers.” The speaker explored the work of the great philosopher Pythagoras, beyond the mathematical theorem he is known for, in order to shed light on the essence behind what he aimed to impart through the knowledge of numbers.

Various legends about Pythagoras’ school were shared, at which it is said that disciples were guided to break out of the their comfort zones by learning to overcome fears and other illusory limitations. The talk also presented fundamental Pythagorean principles of Unity, of Constant Evolution, and of the understanding of Numbers as Archetypes.
