Spirituality, Divinity & The Earthly Kingdom: The Number 13 & The Quest For Black Political Empowerment
The pursuit of political power and the study of the discipline of politics, despite its secular appearance is an act to restore the Godhood within people of African ancestry. By extension politics and political activity is a reflection of a people’s spirituality. Spirituality in the words of the Malawian theologian Harvey Sindima, is “the organizing logic of a people or individual”. Thus everyone has an expression of spirituality in some form or other, with a plethora of vibrational frequencies, registers and imprints.
The failure to “connect the dots” and identify the parts with the whole is due to the acceptance of the Western fragmenting of disciplines which discourages innovative thinking and interdisciplinary analysis. Politics is spiritual and to be spiritual is to be political.
The quest for political power is an important part of the process to raise the level of divinity within each woman, man and child of African ancestry, for it addresses their relationship to land as well as the use of its resources. Remember “Politics” in this sense is “Spiritual”. As the saying goes “Everything is Everything”.
The control of one’s environment is a fundamental prerequisite to expressing a relationship with the cosmic order that governs all aspects of life. Without the control of one’s environment they become subject to alien spirits and ruled by others.
It is through the interplay of human activity, the land and the Divine Order that a spiritual nature is created, exhibited and maintained. The spiritual nature that exists is determined by the subconscious, conscious, voluntary or imposed decisions made by the collective. The end result of this decision making process or politics is what determines the signature vibration of a group’s spiritual nature and its quality of life.
With all the social and physical ills that plague the communities where persons of African ancestry live, we can see clearly that the spiritual nature and quality of life is very poor. To restore wellness, the decision-making process or politics has to radically change.
The aforementioned community that we speak of are “locked in” the lowest expressions of collective spirituality as evidenced by being last or near to last in every metric that measures wealth, health and overall well-being.
Thus when people of African ancestry engage in political activity it is a form of spiritual cleansing by way of exorcism. Hence the pursuit of political power is a necessary ritual act which is just as important as meditation, praying, singing, preaching, lighting of candles or incense, pouring of libations, reading of scripture and engaging in communal or individual worship.
Politics in the field of political science is:
“The the science of government; that part of ethics which has to do with the regulation and government of a nation or state, the preservation of its safety, peace, and prosperity, the defense of its existence and rights against foreign control or conquest, the augmentation of its strength and resources, and the protection of its citizens in their rights, with the preservation and improvement of their morals.”
Once again the primary reason why politics is important to the restoration of the Godhood of people of African ancestry is that it determines the relationship between land and the resources derived from it. To not establish the clear link between the act and the discipline of politics to the spiritual state of one’s being is a violation of spiritual tradition.
Marcus Garvey clearly understood the relationship between the godhood, divinity and the organization of African people. It is clear from his writings and speeches that “metaphysics and politics were explicitly linked in Garvey’s mind. Turning to New Thought to explain the “African vision of nationalism and imperialism,” Garvey advised that “the African at home must gather a new thought. He must not only be satisfied to be a worker but he must primarily be a figure.”
Garvey proclaimed in the Negro World, on June 6, 1925:
“Let the sky and God be our limit, and Eternity our measurement. There is no height to which we cannot climb by using the active intelligence of our own minds. Mind creates, and as much as we desire in Nature we can have through the creation of our own minds.
Being at present the scientifically weaker race, you shall treat others only as they treat you; but in your homes and everywhere possible you must teach the higher development of science to your children; and be sure to develop a race of scientists par excellence, for in science and religion lies our only hope to withstand the evil designs of modern materialism.
Never forget your God. Remember, we live, work and pray for the establishing of a great and binding RACIAL HIERARCHY, the rounding of a RACIAL EMPIRE whose only natural, spiritual and political limits shall be God and “Africa, at home and abroad.”[Emphasis, Mine]
The higher “science” and the “religion” Garvey exhorted his followers to teach at home to their children in order to “develop a race of scientists”, existed in Africa and in the Nile Valley Civilization in particular as seen with the practice of Ma’at.
When we examine the records of the Nile Valley Civilization, there is clear evidence demonstrating the role politics plays in the overall development of the spiritual body of a community. We observe this with the concept of Ma’at. When we properly understand the concept of Ma’at, we readily comprehend the impact of the creation of a fragmented knowledge base, which despite few exceptions in our current times, does not provide a holistic view on life and no necessary support mechanism to truly live.
Ma’at is the codification of Ancient Kemet’s understanding of the fundamental order of the universe. This order governs all of creation, which without it would perish. Ma’at regulates the “stars, seasons, actions of the Neter, Neteru and mortals”. Key to understanding Ma’at is that it is central to life itself and is not an abstract concept for the people of Ancient Kemet. This is seen with the duties and responsibilities of the Nisut Bity commonly referred to as the pharaoh.
The primary duty of the Nisut Bity was to uphold the Ma’at by maintaining the law and administering justice.
The Nisut Bity demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between the political and metaphysical aspects of Ma’at. The Ancient Egyptians had a deep conviction of an underlying holiness and unity within the universe.
Cosmic harmony was achieved by correct public and ritual life. Any disturbance in cosmic harmony could have consequences for the individual as well as the state.
A corrupt Nisut Bity could “bring about famine or blasphemy blindness to an individual” as well destroy the fabric of the community. In opposition to the right order expressed in the concept of Maat is the concept of Isfet: chaos, lies and violence.
It should be clear to the reader, that according to Ancient Kemetic thought the absence of Ma’at brings discord to both the spiritual and social realms. Thus it was very important that not only individuals and the collective society practice Ma’at but the leaders as well. In the light of this understanding, we can deduce that a source of the low quality of life in our world today is due to the lack of cultivation of Ma’at within our general society and particularly amongst the so-called leadership.
The people of Kemet understood that Ma’at when properly practiced could reverse a negative situation and transform an unjust situation to become one of restorative justice. In the Kemetic tradition it is said that truthful spoken word will enable one to receive justice within the legal system of the oppressor. The story Eloquent Peasant relays this:
“Meritensa then hurried to the presence of the Son of Ra, Amenemhat. Meritensa said, “O Your Highness, life, health, and prosperity to you. I have found a peasant named Sekhti who is wonderfully eloquent.” And he told the king of Sekhti’s story.
After the scribes had read Sekhti’s speech to the king, he exclaimed, “It is a joy to hear such eloquence. Do not give him justice, just yet. I want to hear more of his speeches. Have your scribes write down his words, and have these words brought to me. Make sure that he has a place to stay, and enough to eat. And take care of his wife and children.
So, day after day, Sekhti returned to the Hall of Judgement. And each day, he praised Meritensa and the king. And each day, he pleaded for justice. And scribes recorded all of his words. But Meritensa pretended not to listen to him. Sekhti criticized Meritensa for not giving him justice, and Meritensa had him beaten for this.
On the ninth day, Sekhti was ready to give up. He gave one last speech. “O great one, you destroy evil and encourage that which is good. Your justice and mercy are like the plenty which drives away famine, they are like the clear sky that follows a storm, they are like water that quenches thirst. Give me justice for the wrong that was done to me.”
When Sekhti saw that Meritensa did not respond, he left, dejected. Meritensa sent two men to go get Sekhti and return him to the Hall of Judgement. Sekhti feared that he was going to be beaten again, and perhaps killed. But, Meritensa said to him, “Fear not, Sekhti. Your speeches have been read to the Good God, Amenemhat, may he live forever and ever. He has praised you. Come with me now to the palace, so that you may be rewarded.”
And the king ordered that all of Sekhti’s property be returned to him. And he also gave Sekhti all of Hemti’s property, making Hemti the poorest of peasants. And the king made Sekhti overseer of the lands of Meritensa.
And Sekhti spoke often in the palace, as the king delighted to hear him. And Sekhti prospered and was famous, all the days of his life.
And justice ruled in Egypt.”
Another example of how the people of Kemet related the “spiritual” to the “political” is found in the story of the battle between Heru and his evil uncle Seth. Please note that references in quotation below to “king” or “kingship” would correspond to political designations such as “leader”, “ruler”, etc.:
“With the rise of the complete Heru-Asar-Auset mythological complex, visible in the Pyramid Texts during the late Old Kingdom, the living king was identified as an earthly Heru and the dead king (his father or predecessor) as Asar. As the son of Auset and Asar, Heru was also the mythical heir to the kingship of Kemet, and many stories surrounding this struggle to gain and hold the kingship from the usurper Seth detail this aspect of the god’s role. Harwer (Haroeris), or “Heru the Elder” was the mature god represented in these stories who battles Seth for 80 years until the tribunal of gods finally awards him his rightful place on the throne of all Egypt.”
Politics enables people of African ancestry to relate to land in a manner which promotes spiritual cultivation. Without having control over our politics we are subject to foreign rule internally as well as externally.
As Malcolm stated “land is the basis of all independence”. Not only is it important to have an understanding of politics as well as the importance of land but it is also necessary to understand the metaphysical, esoteric and occult expression of this discipline which is found in several numbers including the number 13.
One reason why 13 appears frequently with persons of African ancestry seeking power is that the number is a metaphysical register for “LAND”. The word “LAND” has the same value under both the Chaldean and Pythagorean methods of numerology:
We observe the presence of the number 13 in various spiritual traditions where a “kingdom” is to be established. The notion of “kingdom” must be understood in literal and symbolic terms.
In Ancient Kemet the story of Auset, Ausar and Heru served as a powerful archetype on the metaphysical application of the number 13. We witness the appearance of the number 13 at least twice in this archetype. The first appearance is observed when Ausar is assassinated by his brother Set and his 72 fellow conspirators:
“The original form of the myth states that Ausar (Osiris) was killed by a wooden sarcophagus secretly being made to his measurements by Set, who was jealous of Ausar’s (Osiris’s) position as king, and so plotted to kill him and take his place. A party had been held where the coffin was offered to whoever could fit inside. A few people tried to fit in, but to no avail. Ausar (Osiris)was encouraged to try, but as soon as he lay back, the lid slammed on him and was locked. It was then sealed with lead and thrown into the Nile. Upon hearing that Ausar (Osiris) was gone, Auset (Isis) set out to look for him. She was afraid without proper ceremonies and burial Ausar (Osiris) would not be able to go to the place of the dead. She later learned that the coffin had floated down the Nile river up to the coast of Byblos (now in modern-day Lebanon) and got embedded in the trunk of a cedar tree. She also learned that the cedar tree had been taken and used as a pillar to support a palace for the king of Byblos. When traveling back, along the Nile River, she left the coffin in an area of marshland. Set, while hunting, finds Ausar’s (Osiris’) coffin and dismembered him into 14 parts, scattering them across the land of Egypt. Each part represented one of the 14 full moons (each year has 12 to 14 full moons).
Once again Auset (Isis) set out to look for the pieces and she was able to find 13 of the 14 parts, with the help of Nephthys, Seth’s sister-wife, but was unable to find the 14th. Instead, she fashioned a phallus out of gold and sang a song around Ausar (Osiris) until he came back to life.”
The role that Auset plays in this scenario is key for her symbol is the “throne”. Her name according to some Egyptologists means “she of the throne“. Her original headdress was a throne. As the personification of the throne, she was an important representation of the pharaoh’s power, as the pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided.”
Before the advent of the male gynecologists and the practice of having women laying on their backs, the African woman gave birth in a seated or squatting position. This seated or squatting position mirrors the position of the throne. Thus the symbol of Auset represented the birthing process, the political structure and higher metaphysical principles.
Auset a female archetype represents the “seat of power”. With this understanding we see Condoleezza Rice and First Lady Michelle Obama in a different light.
Another aspect of the story where the number 13 appears is with the personage of Heru, under the name of Har-Khutti has 12 followers. Heru with his 12 followers give us the number 13. Heru was known as Iu-em-Hetep, he who comes in peace, Heru “the avenger“, and Heru”the afflicted one”, Heru is the virgin-born son of Auset and Ausar. At his birth it is said wise kings or Magi came to honor him while he was adored by all manner of neteru and men. As an adult, Heru avenged his father by triumphing over his wicked uncle Set. Heru then journeyed to the underworld where he sits with his father in judgment of the dead. Heru’s triumph over Set may be the origin of the word “hero” and his association with the zodiac makes him the source of the word “hour.” Thus the minor deities of the zodiac are the “Watchers of the Heru (Horus)” or horoscope. He is depicted as a falcon or a man with a falcon head. Heru became known also as the “child of the light” representing the sun (knowledge) driving away darkness (Set; the setting sun; ignorance). From the earliest times in Egypt he came to represent the living king or divine kingship. This idea of the king as nearly a living god typifies African ideology and is thought to have come up the Nile from the south to Egypt. In fact it is said in Egyptian texts that Heru invaded Egypt from the south (Nubia). The ideas of the Mysteries of light banishing darkness or knowledge dispelling ignorance is derived from Heru. It is not surprising that many secret societies speak of receiving or searching for light (Heru). Some even call themselves “Children of Light” (Heru).
Heru as Har-Khutti and his 12 followers travel in the “Boat of Afu-Ra” avenged the death of his father Ausar. Each of 12 followers represented one sign for zodiac and were responsible for rowing the “Boat of Afu-Ra”:
“But still Set refused to relent, and the other gods were getting tired from over eighty years of fighting and challenges. Heru and Set challenged each other to a boat race, where they each raced in a boat made of stone. Heru and Set agreed, and the race started. But Heru had an edge: his boat was made of wood painted to resemble stone, rather than true stone.
Set’s boat, being made of heavy stone, sank, but Heru’s did not. Heru then won the race, and Set stepped down and officially gave Horus the throne of Egypt. But after the New Kingdom, Set still was considered Lord of the desert and its oases.”
The two examples from the Auset-Ausar-Heru mythology demonstrate the relationship between the number 13 and the political state as well as profound metaphysical concepts. In each case with Auset and Heru, the appearance of the number 13 indicated “restoration of justice”, “reconstitution”, “new beginnings”, “the struggle between two forces for rule” and “closure and resolution”. Auset the symbol of the throne, recovered 13 pieces of Ausar’s dismembered body, which allowed her to complete the process to bring forth(give birth to) Heru who with his 12 followers to finally settled the battle with Set (evil) and reclaim the throne. The Auset-Ausar-Heru symbolizes spiritual and political power.
The Ancient Kemetic archetype of Auset-Ausar-Heru provide the symbology and concepts that the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions would plagiarise and re-work its original meaning to suit Western interests.
In the Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition 13 is prominent and has the connections to government. This fact is not taught in most of the religious institutions in the world and is reserved for those who have exposure to esoteric teachings about their religion.
Jacob and the 12 Tribes or Jesus and the 12 disciples are a metaphysical rendering on the ministries involved in operation of a government. According to Rebbi Norvin H. Bey Isra-El the 12 tribes and disciples have astrological correspondences as well as a function of government:
13 comes into play for each 12 was assigned a leader/patriarch on earth. Jesus and the 12 Disciples=13, Jacob and the 12 tribes=13. Both of the personages have names that begin with the letter J, which is the 10th letter of the alphabet. Both personages have five letters in their name.
The name “JACOB” specifically relates to the number 13: JACOB= J=1+A=1+C=3+O=6+B=2=13.
The presence of 13 and relationship to politics and land is also seen in the religion of Islam. In the Quran the word “LAND” is mentioned 13 times!
The quest for power has been in essence to control land, whether it be in America or Africa. However within America, the quest for power has been limited due to the sphere, persons of African ancestry have been forced and in many ways have chosen to operate in. Under the guise of seeking power persons of African ancestry have sought rights afforded with limited citizenship where they function as an appendage to the dominant white ruling class. The Tilden- Hayes Compromise, The destruction of Black Wall Street and the current plight of Black farmers attest to this fact.
African-Americans have not been able to have their own nation as the former 13 colonies succeeded in doing or own and define a particular territory within America outright as the Amish, Mormons with Utah and others have established.
This is in part due to not understanding the importance of land to their identity and basis for spirituality as well as failure to operate on the higher levels of understanding of the number 13.
The different and qualitative vibratory signatures of the number 13 can be seen with the two general mind sets embodied by persons of African ancestry in the pursuit of power, which in turn is a reflection on two different modalities in relating to land. Land once again is governed by the energy of the number 13.
The first mind-set that will be examined is the appearance of number 13 with those who seek to participate within the system established by the white ruling class, such as the American government as a whole, as well as the Democratic, Republican or white led supposedly progressive third parties, which have all imposed their definition on the role in which Black people would operate under in pursuing political power.
13th Amendment: Persons of African ancestry were not included in the drafting, editing or the final approval of this amendment that outlined the measures in which they would be “free”. Due to the significantly small numbers who could read and write the slave master’s language, the majority of persons of African ancestry at the time could not fully comprehend this amendment or challenge its authors to create an amendment that truly met their interests, needs and desire for what “freedom” should mean for them.
Reconstruction Period: This period was stifled due to the Republicans refusal to heed the advice of its members of African ancestry who warned the party’s leaders not to severely punish those Democrats who were Confederates and supported secession. The first African-American United States Senator Hiram Revels, whose first name “Hiram” under the so-called Chaldean numerology system equals 13, expressed his concerns but was ignored by white members of his party:
“On November 6, 1875, Revels, as a Republican, wrote a letter to Republican President Ulysses S. Grant that was widely reprinted. Revels denounced Ames and the Carpetbaggers for manipulating the Black vote for personal benefit, and for keeping alive wartime hatreds:
- Since reconstruction, the masses of my people have been, as it were, enslaved in mind by unprincipled adventurers, who, caring nothing for country, were willing to stoop to anything no matter how infamous, to secure power to themselves, and perpetuate it….. My people have been told by these schemers, when men have been placed on the ticket who were notoriously corrupt and dishonest, that they must vote for them; that the salvation of the party depended upon it; that the man who scratched a ticket was not a Republican. This is only one of the many means these unprincipled demagogues have devised to perpetuate the intellectual bondage of my people…. The bitterness and hate created by the late civil strife has, in my opinion, been obliterated in this state, except perhaps in some localities, and would have long since been entirely obliterated, were it not for some unprincipled men who would keep alive the bitterness of the past, and inculcate a hatred between the races, in order that they may aggrandize themselves by office, and its emoluments, to control my people, the effect of which is to degrade them.”[Emphasis, Mine]
The Tilden-Hayes Compromise was the aftermath of the Republican’s disregard for he true empowerment of persons of African ancestry as well as the concerns raised by Hiram Revel. The Tilden-Hayes Compromise was the result of the disputed 1876 presidential election battle between Republican Rutherford Hayes and Democrat Samuel Tilden. Tilden won the popular vote and had 184 electoral votes to Hayes’ 165 with 20 electoral college votes in dispute. “In return for the Democrats’ acquiescence in Hayes’ election, the Republicans agreed to withdraw federal troops from the South, ending Reconstruction. The Compromise effectively ceded power in the Southern states to the Democratic Redeemers.” This “Compromise” paved the way for the terroristic American apartheid -Jim Crow-Segregation system that would officially rule the American South for over 1oo years.
The number 13 appears with the Tilden-Hayes Compromise, with the number of electoral college votes garnered by then Democratic presidential candidate Samuel Tilden. Tilden secured 184 electoral college votes. 184=1+8+4=13.
Adam Clayton Powell lived from November 29, 1908-April 4, 1972, His birth date of November 29, 1908= 11+29+1+9+0+8= 58=5+8=13. Powell was forced out by Congress due to racism despite having an excellent legislative record. “On March 1, 1967 the House voted 307 to 116 to exclude him. Powell said, “On this day, the day of March in my opinion, the end of the United States of America as the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
Fannie Lou Hamer founding member of the Mississippi Democratic Freedom Party was locked out of the Democratic Party convention of 1964 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The name “Fannie Lou Hammer” equals 13.
The original 13 members of Congressional Black Caucus, presented Nixon with 60 measures or legislative objectives to which Nixon responded by placing some of them on his infamous enemies list. Why isn’t they haven’t been able to match the legislative record of Adam Clayton Powell? In short, the system they are under stifles progressive continuity ie. Nixon’s enemies list, unwarranted investigations of Black politicians, assassinations and timely deaths such as Ron Brown, Mickey Leland, et.al When we operate solely under American law as “citizens”, members of the Democratic, Republican and white led “Third” political parties we subject ourselves to institutions that were originally designed to serve white interests and not those of persons of African ancestry.
Doug Wilder, the first African-American governor of Virginia was inaugurated on the 13th of January 1990. Wilder won his election by 700 votes and only served one term. Were the interests of persons of African ancestry in Virgina met in one term?
Barack Hussein Obama before becoming the first acknowledged president of African ancestry served as state senator in the Illinois Senate from the 13th district. His relationship to the number 13 represents the limits of seeking political power within the given political parties. The high levels of unemployment of Black people especially Black males during his tenure in office as well as his inability or refusal to discuss the race issue in a substanive way.
Within this paradigm, the number 13 is being used to guide persons of African ancestry to operate within white controlled institutions which place as a priority their definitions and white nationalistic interests.
The other expression of the number 13 by persons of African ancestry seeking power, is with the mind-set of owning and controlling land, whether a territory within America as seen with Black nationalism or establishing a free and prosperous territory controlled by Africans:
- Marcus Garvey born on August 17, 1887. August 17, 1887= 8+17+1+8+8+7=49=4+9=13.
- Nation of Islam: The name “Nation Of Islam” equals 13.
- Black Liberation Army: The Fraternal Order of Police blamed the BLA for the murders of 13 police officers. October 22, 1970, the BLA is believed to have planted a bomb in St. Brendan’s Church in San Francisco. October 22, 1970=10+22+1+9+7+0=49=4+9=13.
Outside of America we also observe the presence of the number 13 with persons of African ancestry pursuing power:
- Haitian Revolution: After the Vodou ceremony at Bwa Kayiman presided over by Dutty Boukman on August 14, 1791, the enslaved African people of Haiti fought for 13 years to gain their freedom resulting in the first free African led Republic in the world on January 1,1804. The year “1804”=1+8+0+4=13.
- ANC: The ANC was founded on January 8, 1912. The year “1912“=1+9+1+2=13.
- OAU: The Organization of African Unity (OAU) was formed on May 25, 1963: 5+25+1+9+6+3=49=4+9=13.
- Kwame Nkrumah lived from September 21, 1909 – April 27, 1972. Nkrumah’s birth date of September 21, 1909= 9+21+1+9+0+9=49=4+9=13.
Another expression of the number 13 is concealed within the number 39. With the number 39 we have the word “Freedom”:
We observe the appearance of the number 39 in white ruling class, the lives of Malcolm and Martin as well.
A.) White Ruling Class: The so-called Illuminati is said to be organized by 13 blood lines or families. Furthermore the Bilderberg organization is supposedly structured with 3 committees with 13 members each. 13×3=39.
B.) Malcolm and Martin both were assassinated at the age of 39. In the minds of the ruling class they killed/murdered the aspirations for freedom on the part of people of African ancestry but on a metaphysical level their deaths inspire those on the quest for true empowerment to complete the task. It is said when a soldier dies on the battle field, you honor them by taking up their arms and continue the fight to win the battle.
C.) Jimmy Carter the 39th president was from Georgia, which also is the birth place of Martin Luther King, Jr. who was assassinated when he was 39 years old. Notice what he has done after being president vs. when he was president once again indicating the limits of those with the mark of the “39”. It also shows the difference in what is attained between person of African ancestry and others when either one is associated with any of the numbers examined in this article. Jimmy Carter’s “39” led him to the seat of power in America by winning the presidency, albeit for one term. However with Malcolm and Martin, their “39” indicated the age they were both assassinated.
Freedom which is equals the number 39, which is 13×3, reflects the different phases in which freedom must be achieved: Body , Mind and Spirit. 39 also reflects the metaphysical aspects of Auset, Ausar and Heru.
What these patterns are indicate is that there needs to be a precise coordination of symbology and awareness of numerology registers and imprints, in order to successfully complete the mission of African liberation at “home and aboard”. Through the use of “Name and Number” we can detect the spiritual register. This would also include among other disciplines numerology and astrology.
The 13 as demonstrated in the various examples presented in this article is connected to both celestial and earthly energies reflecting a union between the spiritual and the political. There is however different levels of understanding how to manipulate the energies of the number 13 in order to fulfill the objectives of a political movement.
The establishment of the earthly kingdom cannot occur unless there is a conscious effort to align one’s self or group with the higher expressions of the number 13 as seen with the Ancient Kemetic and Judeo-Christian-Islamic examples.
Kwame Nkrumah once said “seek ye first the political kingdom“. This is an instruction which put in different terms means “you must choose to secure your freedom”. Politics deals with decision-making and when an oppressed group decides to operate on the highest expression of the number 13, the “heavens and the earth” become one, with the activation of the Godhood and Divinity of persons of African ancestry.
Politics is tied to land and freedom. The pursuit of freedom and land is symbolically manifested in the number 13. In America, 40 acres and a mule has been the metaphor of the unfulfilled attainment of justice for persons of African ancestry. The word “politics” under the lens of numerology is equal to 4o:
By successfully exercising their “freedom” (the number 39 or 13×3″) , obtaining or pursuing control of “land” (the number 13) and successfully engaging in “politics” (40), persons of African ancestry would be able to secure the proverbial “40 acres”. 13 and 40 both when reduced to their single digit expression equals 4.
The number 4 is the number for organization and foundation.
The number 13 symbolizes in scientific and esoteric terms the moon, its calendar, metaphysical and occult meanings, all of which will be examined in the next article on this topic.
