# Mathematic Proof of the value of chance

This is my first post on HE so stay with me…

I’ve been doing some reading about Rodin’s “Vortex based Mathematics.” It has some strong similarities to numerology in that it deals with single digit numbers.

If you’re not familiar with how it works, you give each letter in the alphabet a number (i.e. A-1, B-2, C-3, …..Z-26 you get it. Then you reduce each number down to a single digit (i.e. Z which has a value of 26 means 2+6=8.) You then add up the single digits for each letter and reduce down to a final single digit. Again, simple numerology.

If you compare the words LIMITS and CHANCES with the above formula you will see the following:

LIMITS= 1 CHANCES=8

I have likened it all to the following idea:

There is more numerical value to the chances we take than the limits we operate under.

I feel that it is a nice thing to think about. I find it very motivating and I wanted to share it with anyone who finds this.

It’s an interesting and beautiful way of presenting coincidental occurrences.

@harmonybetween, I’ve heard of doing this with names, and that the resulting number has some meaning in a person’s life, though I don’t understand how, it seems that my number pops up absolutely everywhere in my life. I am superstitious to a point, but I never could understand the connection between a person and their name, seeing as words, letters, and numbers were all created by humans.

@harmonybetween, how would it work in another language?

so the theory only applies to english and base-10 math then?

How does c(3)h(7)a(1)n(1+4=5)c(3)e(5)s(1+9=10) equal 8?

@versai, h is (8) s(1+9=10, 1+0=1)

you have to keep adding digits together until you get down to a single digit.

@sumtinprophetic, i guess it might change in another language. maybe assign numbers to the various alphabets and go from there.

ahhh, i see.
So what’s the point? Why is 8 more magical than 1?

mike (8) (@harmonybetween) 9 years, 7 months ago ago

@versai, nothing magic about it. Just the simple fact that 8 is more than 1 therefore chances have more numerical value than limits. And to take it a step further, if you add 8+1=9. There is tons of research and ideas about the universal mystery of 9. And in this formula the letter “i” is the 9th letter. In the algebra world “i” is the letter used to signify the imaginary or unknown value within certain equations. Again, this is nothing full proof. Its just interesting to think about.

@harmonybetween, I would stay away from the word “proof” here, but as was said by @sirensetmefree, it is an interesting coincidence
