N for Numbers

taken at Art Dubai 2013

Numbers are always mystical for many people. There are plenty different given meanings for each and every numbers.
such as 13 is the famous one with bad luck. Most of airlines do not have 13th row in their planes. Seat row numbers just jumped from 12 to 14 :) Yes, Emirates Airlines too.

or 7 is considered the luckiest number in Western culture as well as in Chinese culture.
or 666 it is associated with the beast.

many people seek the meaning of everything with numerology since early days of mathematics.

If they would read "the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" from Douglas Adams they would know the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything.  :)
