    Wait a minute!
    Are you discussing the plausibility of the numerology scheme? (i.e. convincing the gullible?), or
    Are you discussing the validity of the scheme? (do not most of us agree this is pseudo-science?) or
    Are you referring to some other criteria?

    I find my prognostication system VERY delightful and flexible. For one thing, valid (unique) word-arithmetic solutions are, as you imply, not so easy to come by: I was slightly astounded to get 'Artful One' from 'Angry Floof'. I suspect that Ms. Floof herself might find my prognostication more appealing and serendipitous than one based on a rote weighting system.
    I think for a proper numerology scheme it has to involve consistent values and then you pick and choose with perhaps many possibilities to find one that fits....

    BTW the "Decode Your Reality" guy, who is usually 97% upvoted, uses a combination of Chaldean numerology, the Periodic Table (which he calls "Alchemy"), different sets of Tarot Cards, playing cards mapped to dates in the year, astrology, etc...

    Ridiculous playing card and planets connections:

    e.g. when talking about Pi he goes into Lizard People and uses "They Live" and the recent Superman movie's reptilian suit appearance....

    BTW here's the most amazing series of connections I've ever come across....
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphamagic_square



    If that is possible it suggests amazing numerological/pseudoscience connections are also possible....

    BTW I find anagrams more amazing than your numerology example....

    I was especially impressed by this example from the Simpsons
    https://blog.puzzlenation.com/2013/0...ons-revisited/
    “Great crimes kill holy sage”
    which becomes:
    “Regally, the rock gem is Lisa.”
    then:
    “It’s really Maggie, Sherlock.”

    BTW in anagrams normal numerology would give the same overall answer (but not your numerology)

    I am a fan of phrenology, I think that is the term. . You tell a lot about someone from the bumps on their head.
