Well, i haven't considered numerology, but i have considered a kind of tarot-card system with 25 cards based on the Rokbeigalm's (the Rokbeigalmki conculture) five life-elements, which each are connected to a specific life-cycle event: aurez (wood) - being born zek (fire) - puberty reiyug (blood) - marriage dwi (water) - giving birth / begetting amal (earth) - death So, if you have a card for each combination of two elements - aurez-zek, dwi-dwi, amal-reiyug, etc., you get a total of 25 cards to do stuff with. I have no idea what each would mean, though :) -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
