Show us some math!
I wouldn't call it numerology, at least in the dictionary definition of the word. This to me is purely recreational mathematics. I think it is a bit unfair to suggest it isn't mathematics, though I'm not going to deny its lack of substance. If someone finds it has some relevance, I'd be surprised, but its not the goal. I was just messing around. Regarding the other things you mentioned, no I have neither read those, nor have any probabilistic heuristics. In truth, I don't have the mathematical ability to do that in the first place. Sorry for seemingly wasting your time.
