The paper consists of four sections—each related to a different aspect of Metaphysical Numerological Symbolism (M.N.S.). The main thesis statement of the first section is M.N.S.-- Add up/Compile/Put together its puzzle pieces (code of numbers) in each Scripture etc. and you will get a broader Universal Scripture. The first part of the second section suggests that a substantive quintessential link exists between M.N.S. and the TAO. The Thesis Statement made in this section is such that: “TAO is a Metaphysical-Synonym for 9.” The thesis statement of Section three is such that M.N.S. has the potential to spur positive Socio-Economic Development in all human milieus—especially/specifically in Developing Cosmopolitan Societies. The fourth section discusses games of chance played in the Caribbean Region; this section argues that Metaphysical Numerological-Symbolism (M.N.S.) has effectively transformed them into a form of religion in the Caribbean. The paper concludes initially with a discussion of the M.N.S. Trail. The thesis statement is such that the M.N.S. Trail that connects religions is a universal scripture directly pointing to the Universal Essence. Abstractly removed from the Local Settings of the diverse World Religions, the M.N.S. Trail has efficacy for sudden awareness of a Universal Essence. The conclusion of the paper then proceeds to discuss the connection between M.N.S. and new religious/spiritual movements.
