The Dark Crystal


urYod the Numerologist

urYod the Numerologist kept track of time with moving strings of stones. I read his stars in secret; once we exchanged concordances. Before the Division, he aided me with the Observatory.

Numbers are at the heart of the world, the measure of the dance of the heavens; number is music crystallized. The urRu gave me many gifts, urYod gave me the measure of all gifts. It is not that rhythm and balance and pattern are expressed in terms of numbers or cannot be conceived of without numbers, but that beyond all harmony, within all harmony, the numbers that are patterns in themselves determine all forms throughout time or space.
