Yes. Isaac Newtown was superstitious, as was everyone who lived in his time. He was a Christian, and was influenced by the nonsense of religion, but he was also interested in the occult, and researched the history of ancient rituals of Britain. He believed in ideas such as turning lead into gold through alchemy, and he believed in the significance of numerology. It is no surprise that he counted seven colours in the visible light spectrum, when it is only possible to see six. He added the colour indigo to the spectrum in order to produce a number that was more appealing to him, and his numerological beliefs than the number six.
