A Numbers Game

Hi!

I’m writing and enjoying this great weather when I came to a part in my story involving numbers. So I felt compelled to ask:

Why do people put so much stock into numbers? Some numbers are more significant than others, some represent evil, or in the least, bad luck, while others may represent prosperity or have a divine meaning.

Where did this fascination come from?

Also, do they still hold a place in the modern world? Obviously casinos and business offices skip floor 13, entirely, and I can’t even imagine how the east Asians handle 4. But, is that all now?
