"If you were to encounter an extraterrestrial being, it would be unlikely that the two of you would have any other form of communication other than the language of numbers. The shape of the number symbols might not be useful, but if the two of you sat down with a pocketful of pebbles, you'd be able to demonstrate a certain amount of intelligence ... and even share information.
The point is that numbers are a universal means of understanding and communication. Numbers transcend the limits of our world.
On one hand, numbers are free of subjective realities, such as emotions and personal preferences. In their purest sense, numbers possess objectivity, which is why they are the language of science. They are the most reliable means of communicating abstract ideas, and of quantifying physical realities. On the other hand, numbers can be used to reveal the 'soul' of words. Words evolve with an underlying feeling for the objects they describe.
Each word has a specific definition, as well as a connecting emotional and spiritual feeling. Numerology can be used to reveal that underlying feeling."
The previous paragraphs were quoted from my book Numerology: Key to Your Inner Self, and brings me to the topic of Numerology in language. Using Numerology to analyze words in the English language is an excellent way to get an intuitive and in-depth understanding of the personalities of numbers. Like reverse engineering, we learn what something is made of by taking the end product and studying its parts.
For example, the number 6 is considered the most loving, protective and harmonious of all numbers. To understand how that influences our language, one only needs to look at the fact that the letter "O" is found as the first vowel in many words that represent those qualities in some form or another. Words like love, home, roof, mother, house, food, book, dog, God and so forth.
Another example of how a language evolves in synchronicity with the essential nature of a people is to look at the most common vowel in their language's alphabet. In the Germanic languages (English, German, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, etc.) the "E" is the most commonly found vowel. This reflects the Germanic people's obsession with freedom (look, two Es in "freedom"), as the number 5, the numerical value of the letter "E," is all about freedom. On the other hand, the most common vowel found in the Roman languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese) is the letter "A," which demonstrates that the people in those countries consider individualism and independence -- the main attributes of the number 1, the numerical value of the letter "A" -- to be the most essential in their lives.
