Curiosity to know in advance, what fortune or misfortune is stored for self in future is a common human trait. Although it is instinctive in us, it may vary in degrees depending upon one’s own temperament and self-constituted will power; total absence of this tendency is rare and that too is questionable. From ancient times, there gad been a number of brunches Futurology in vogue, but those which could earn popularity and stand the deliberate attack of the rationalists were Astrology and Palmistry. For the sake of avoiding tedious, complicated, unintelligible calculations of Astrology and interpretations of Palmistry, being many a time beyond human reasoning, owing to the erratic deviations of the lines of palms. Numerology was easily acceptable by the masses.
It can not be denied that scientists had and continue to have, till today, their triumphant march in revealing Nature's secrets. Inspite of this they are not very complacent. This is because Nature is so richly equipped with secrets, that hardly a section of it is fractionated. At the same time nature has many surprises in store for us. Everything, therefore, does not necessarily work according to scientists' calculations, although it would be declared with supreme confidence. Palmistry, just as Astrology, Numerology is a definite science based on a detailed study and experience with perfect reasoning, of those who advocated in the past. One of the common charges made of Palmists is that either they are badly instructed or are past masters. Logically this sounds absurd. This is because a palmist, who can speak of the past of a stranger correctly and convincingly, certainly can foretell the future events too. This is a good reason to believe that a true palmist possesses a fair amount of knowledge on the subject. His interpretation on the basis of the deviation of lines is truly faultless.
