The Personal Injury Lawyers with the William Mattar Law Offices are of the mind there is a certain enchantment that is attached to the number four. The numeral has been around since man began to count. Both its meaning and characteristics have changed over time though, making it a symbol that is now recognized throughout the world.

Four is the only number that represents the same number of characters in the English language as its value. In mathematics, four is both the smallest composite and squared prime number.

A study released in the journal of Communicative &Integrative Biology showed humans can precisely recognize up to four small objects without counting. When subjects were asked to recognize any number of objects above that, mistakes were made.

The number also has significance in several of the most popular religions from around the world. In Buddhism, there are four Noble Truths. Muslims believe there are four sacred months out of the year. In the Christian world, the book of Revelations discusses the coming of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

In Science, there are four states of matter. Also, insects who morph, such as butterflies and moths, do so in four stages.

William Mattar and his team of attorneys believe in the power of the number four. That’s why our phone number is simply (844) 444-4444. Let us know where you see the number four around the world by posting to our social media outlets, such as Facebook or Twitter.
