One is the number of God, The One
, the Creator. One is considered the "original
number"; it is the "unit" off which we base everything else.
According to numerology
, people can be classified
based on their number
. This "number" is derived using gematria
, usually, although other tricks are also utilized
. Figure out your number however you like
, I guess.
"One people" in numerology are supposed to be dominants
, leaders. They are tough
people that don't shake easily
and stick to their goals
. (This is because if you divide
by 1, the result is the original number, unchanged.) Sometimes "one people" are also assumed
to be stiff
, probably because of the upright stance
of the number itself.
One is the number of the point
; the unity
. It signifies the point
in geometry because, well, duh; the point is one-dimensional
. One is the creator
, but it is also powerless
to become anything new without help
. There's a reason
this is a male number
, the number of the Father
: it is the creative power
, but it is of course sterile
without the female two
Interesting fact: In Ancient Greece, one was not considered a number. "A number" was any grouping of things; and one was not a group, it was just the thing. But you think that's bad; in those days, Zero didn't even exist.
