Numerology means a whole bunch of different things.

But the aspects you are probably thinking about are the ones with associations to superstition.

This is a lot of nonsense, but:

"The late great Hebrew University scholar Gershom Scholem (1897-1982), who devoted his life to the study of Jewish mysticism and messianism has been quoted as having once said:

Nonsense is nonsense, but the academic study of nonsense is legitimate scholarship.”"

If enough people believe, it, and it becomes influential in history, then its worth studying.

Numbers are all around us, and they certainly play a role in our societies at a fundamental level.
