The Birth of Numerology

The Father of Numerology and its African Origin
Pythagoras is known as the Greek Father of Mathematics, Numbers and the Father of Western Numerology. It is said that he was born on the Island of Samos, Greece around 580 BC and died between 500 and 490 BC in Metapontum, Luciana. He is known as a great Greek Philosopher, Mathematician, Mystic and Scientist and is credited with coining the word philosophy, which means, the love of wisdom.
The Pythagorean system of Numerology is said to combine the mathematical disciplines of the Egyptians, Phoenicians, Arabs, Druids and the sciences of the Essenes.
Pythagoras showed the connection of music, mathematics and the spheres in the heavens.
The well known 47th problem of Euclid bears his name (Pythagorean Theorem), the most well known theorem in Geometry. The Pythagorean Theorem is the sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) is equal to the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c). A² + B² = C².
History of Pythagoras
Pythagoras was known to have studied in Memphis, Egypt with the Priest of Ptah. Any information on Pythagoras comes from people who claimed to be his students. There have been no findings of anything actually written by Pythagoras in 2,500 years about his undocumented birth to present.
Using etymology, the name Pythagoras, is Pytha and Agoras. Agor means “he who spoke or speaks”. Greek vowels were not used in ancient languages, hence Pyth and Ptah would both be Pth. Consequently, Pythagoras may be interpreted as ‘He who spoke or speaks on behalf of the god Ptah’.
The African Origin
In antiquity, the place we call Egypt was known as Kemet, the land of the Blacks. The word came from the Greek work Aigyptos, which in turn came from the ancient Kemetic word Hetkaptah, meaning the House of the Spirit of Ptah.
Dr. Yosef Ben-Yochannan, the great African Historian, has stated that the Khamites or the Kemetians (Ancient Egyptians) claimed to have come from the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon where the god Hapi dwells. The god Hapi is the god of the Nile. This is where the Nile River begins at the Congo Uganda border of inner Africa so the fact that the Ancient Egyptians were undoubtedly African in origin can be established.
A living indigenous culture in Africa, the Yoruba People of southwest Nigeria traditionally claim to be from the East, ancient Egypt or the Nile Valley region. The city of Ife or Ile Ife is their Spritual Center (as were Memphis, Menefer and Agoras). Ile means House, Ife means Love, wide enough or to expand so we can interpret Ile Ife to be ‘The House is wide enough.
Agora in Ancient Greece
In Ancient Greece, Agora was the seat of government, the marketplace and the spiritual center. It is the place that the Greeks called Egypt i.e. The House of the Spirit of Ptah.
Aigyptos was a particular area in Kemet, not the entire country. This area was known as the city of Menefer, which we now call Memphis. Memphis, Tennessee (USA), is named after the city of Memphis or Menefer in Africa which is also located on the river. Memphis was the capital, the seat of government & spiritual center where the Deity Ptah was worshiped.
The God Ptah
Ptah was the chief deity of Memphis. Ptah’s name in Ancient Egyptian is believed to have been pronounced as Pitá, based on the occurrence of his name in hieroglyphics surviving into Coptic as Ptah, just as it is now written in English.
Written in Hieroglyphs (Medu Neter) Ptah has the square (P), the half circle (T) and the three looped knotted rope (H) as the three symbols in his name.
The name was also borrowed early on into Greek as PØ Phtha. Sometimes Ptah is called Kher-baker, meaning “He who is under his tree,” suggesting that he was syncretized with an older local tree god of Memphis whose symbol is the moringa tree.
