2014 - The Year of the Idea

I wasn't going to write about the significance of 2014 in numerology, because it is a little hokey. However, I opened today's paper and the headline was "2014 - The Year of the Idea." In numerology 2014 is a 7, which means that it has strong intellectual associations, according to this site anyway.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

His intelligence is that of a dreamer, an intellectual explorer of the obscure, the person who tends to have a somewhat off-beat perspective on the world around him. Many are interested in the metaphysical, not because they are believers, but because it allows access to the ambiguous, abstract world of questions for which there are no clear answers.

So it sounds as though we may be in for a mystical ride. It should be a good year for writers of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I am going to start reading Jude the Obscure today - go figure. It should also be a good year for people born under the sign of Aquarius, because this is you isn't it? My sun sign is Leo, however, apparently I have Aquarius as my ascendent and my moon is in Aquarius, so I guess that I will be writing more posts on Angels, for example.

How Much Is That Angel in the Window?
How Many Angels Can be stored in a Cloud (or is that I-Cloud?)

Expect references to John Donne, a metaphysical poet. He wrote this poem, for example, in the 1500s

No Man Is An Island
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee. 
John Donne

Ironically the word I chose for 2014 is "people." So I guess people will be discussed in a metaphysical sense. In fact, since we can ask questions in 2014 to which there may not be answers, I could spend today pondering - Were angels once people? Or are they still people, only in a different form?

Happy New Year!!
