Numerology nuts and bolts

To those who follow it, it correctly defines who you are and even what type of relationship you should be in.The practice is said to be based on the statement, “The world is built upon the power of numbers,” which was claimed by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras (yes, the same guy responsible for A squared + B squared = C squared). Pythagoras believed that the universe could be expressed numerically.
