Pythagoras, the great man who worshipped numbersNumbers were everything to him. Pythagoras was a special type, who believed in numbers and worshipped them. He strongly believed that each number has a meaningful idea with possible interpretation behind it. 'One' is the starting point of numbers and it gives birth to other numbers. According to Pythagoras it is the 'Cause' or Motive for other numbers. 'Two' is opinion. 'Three' is merging (dissolving). Four is justice.Five is marriage; Six is creation and so on.
Similarly he attributed properties too to these numbers. Five has the property colour. Six has cold, seven has health, eight has love and so on.
The Pythagorean group formed by him worshipped music and it's foundation, that is mathematics. They believed that music would purify the 'aatma' (spirit) just as medicine purified the body.
