The Painfully Brief and Horribly Incomplete "Nickel Tour"


The purpose of this page is to offer painfully brief and horribly incomplete descriptions of what it is I try to do in my analysis of tarot and the creation of my own "wisdom system" of patterns and numbers.

The Numerical Tarot has a definite underlying structure that is highly logical in form. Because it is based on the creation of a number line that consists of only nine digits, numerous alterations take place from that of traditional tarot. The links below are an attempt to explain, in painfully brief and horribly incomplete language, the "why" of some of the alterations you may notice as you study this system of logical analysis.

But before you read any further... if you haven't already been there, you should read The Two Cent Tour first. Then...
Pick any one of these articles to read. This is a non-linear site, so explore.

These articles should get you started. I will be adding more in the BOOK section, as time permits.

All of these sections contain painfully brief and horribly incomplete descriptions of ideas that are explained in painfully exact detail in the book "All Things Are Numbers." They are, at times, a bit out of context. They are only meant to pique your interest in what I do and how I do it, they are not meant to be complete descriptions.
