I was born on the 11th of October in 1971 in Heidelberg / Germany as son of a German mother and a Turkish father.
Since I was a young boy I was fascinated with numbers. I had a very
simple pocket calculator and I spent hours with randomly adding and
multiplicating of figures, for substracting and dividing them over and
over again I was not interested that much in the results, but in the
way of the numerical orders which the calculator showed me, as a result
of my input actions. The figures 3 and 9 particularly impressed me.
And, of course, the results of repeating digits such as with 1 and 9
(i.e. 111111 x 111111). A kid’s game.
After high school diploma I studied Mathematics and Economic Computer
Science at the University of Heidelberg (Ruperto-Carola) / Germany and
at the University of Mannheim / Germany.
In 1999 I moved to Berlin / Germany and started
as a programmer for internet applications. In the end of 2003 I became
rather interested in mythological, psychological and psychic meanings
of numbers. Since then I started studying for a while several
Tarot-games and the Cabbalah, as well as the cabbalistic tree of life
and its coherences with the chakras of Yoga. Regarding cardinal
numbers, I discovered magic squares, classical orbs and the astrology.
However, I have never been interested in any
calculations of my personal lucky-number. For myself it has always been
always more exciting to be busy with numerals, which I could put in a
rational context. Thus I have an enormous interest in character letters
from various cultures, and from my point of view, they are closely
connected with the numeral system. In 2006 I developed my original
pack of cards and card game, "The JE", which is closely related in its
card game structure and playing rules to the corresponencies to be
discovered and explored on my Rodurago website.
