‘7’ may have been the ancient and customary number when it came to the seas and the heavens above, years of bad luck upon a broken mirror, and the wonders of the world. ‘8’, though, is the magic number when it is time for thinking in scientific and non-scientific fields – also known as “higher-order thinking”.
