About the Author
Born on May 15, 1949 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Hans Decoz has been a student of numerology since 1969, when he discovered an old and rather worn out book on the ancient spiritual science in a secondhand book shop in Amsterdam. For many years, he experimented with the tools of numerology, reading and studying everything he could find on the subject. Hans traveled throughout Europe and Asia in search of more understanding and knowledge of the different forms and techniques used in numerology.
He used it to better understand his friends or acquaintances, for example, or to interpret various events on the universal as well as the personal plane. Only after he had overcome his intense skepticism was he able to see the practice as yet another example of the ultimate unity, integrity, and wholeness of the universe.
In 1982, Hans began practicing numerology professionally in Houston, Texas. By then, he had a deep understanding-- both of the science, as well as what it suggested about life itself. Soon he had a burgeoning practice, rich with the many strata of Houston's population -- from the hardworking housewife and laborer to the wealthiest of Houston's business elite.
Ever since he was a child, Hans demonstrated advanced abilities in mathematics and art. He loved to figure out complex mathematical problems and, once completed, put aside such work for hours at his easel where he produced drawings and paintings. These abilities eventually led to fascination with computers, for which he also had a special talent. Now he wanted to combine these native abilities with his understanding of numerology. He also wanted to make that understanding more widely available. In 1985, inspiration struck and Hans developed the renowned computer software program known as the DecozChart.
That program proved to be revolutionary. It was the first (and to this day it is the only) numerology chart-maker program capable of producing a complete numerology chart that included fifty years of forecasting cycles. The chart itself -- a beautifully designed layout -- was placed on a single page, visually capturing the many cycles and changes each person goes through in any 50-year period.
Following the chart-maker software program, Hans started working on a computer program that would produce a complete numerology report for individuals. After two years of writing, Hans called on his friend Tom Monte to help edit the data base of text files; together they devoted four years to the creation of a numerology program that provided people with complete personality profiles and future forecasts. Until then, no one had created a program capable of calculating a person's complete numerology chart, and then producing a unique report that described the meaning of each of the person's most important numbers. It is true that some small, rudimentary programs existed, but this was the first program that could produce an in-depth, personal reading that consisted of 25 pages or more. As everyone knows who has received their own personal reading, those numerology reports are written with incredible insight, compassion, and understanding of life. Hans Decoz currently resides in Galveston, Texas. He lectures and offers courses and personal consultations. Hans is currently working on his second book. His first book: Numerology; Key To Your Inner Self with Tom Monte, was published in 1994 by Avery Publishing Group, NY. The book has since been translated in several languages, including Russian, German, Turkish, and Dutch.
