THE SYMBOLIC USE OF NUMBERS IN KEMET
ONE represents the Creator of the universe and is sometimes represented by a circle that symbolizes the sun.
TWO represents a male and female who were created by the Creator.
THREE is the offspring that comes from the union of the male and female. It forms the trinity or triangle.
FOUR represents stability, balance, harmony, and order. It is the base or foundation on which everything rests. Four is represented by a cube which symbolizes the earth, the four winds, the four seasons, and the four directions.
FIVE represents man. There are five parts of the human body (head, arms and legs). Man has five fingers, five toes, and five senses. The word man literally means “mind.” It is derived from Sanskrit, and it has no sexual connotation. In this context, woman means the “womb” that produces man / mind.
SIX represents death. From the earliest times people were buried in a six sided box ( a coffin), were carried to their grave by six pallbearers, and were buried six feet under the earth. Symbolically, the number 666 refers to the death of the body, mind, and spirit of a person, and not the devil as is commonly believed
SEVEN represents heaven, the place where the dead were resurrected. Heaven was also the abode of Ausar, the first story in history of a resurrected human, and it was the desired destination of everyone who died. This is the meaning of the phrases “Seventh Heaven” and the “700 Club.”
