This is first comment ever for ''Numerology'' for its six years. Surprisingly CM13 has all the current topics. Sol cites the order out of Chaos. Mercury's ''searching for the relics'' is reference to 'Searching for Bobby Fischer'. Fischer may not always have had Mercury's ''full-deck random shuffle'' (line 23) at the end. Jupiter(K) and Venus(Q) both address computers in Chess. Each speaker of the seven has a 7 and a 12 for the ''Numerological'' aspect itself. Mars' 7 and 12 are not as explicit, but they are the seven Horses of Hindu theme and twelve Knights of King Arthur. /a>Shuffling
