Numbers are rendered as symbolic entities in a variety of ways, such as: gematria (assigning numbers to letters), Kabbalah (mathematical permutations of words represented by numbers), and sacred geometry (mathematical constructs built into structures like stone circles or cathedrals), and binary arithmetic (1’s and 0’s represent specific machine states).
