    Seven is one of those magic numbers that mystists seem to like... they like three, eight, twelve, and thirteen… they’re arbitrary numbers that if repeated enough times gain a significance of their own. You see it in architecture too. Perhaps some of you are aware of the golden section? Same thing… not really a special number in itself, but if you organize a whole school of architecture around it, then it becomes special… the mind picks the consistent proportion out of everything.
