fourfold celebration is lucky here's why

Fourfold Celebration While You’re on the Subject. Why fourfold? The answer goes back to at least Mesolithic times. That is, 9,000 B.C. Number squares were at the basis of ancient cultures. The 1st possible odd number  square is 3 x 3. It has one number at its center. Then comes 4 x 4. It has 4 numbers at its center.Below are the classic outlays of these number squares.

Genesis 1:1  is based on these 2 number squares. God described everyday of creation in the Torah as “good”. In Hebrew the  letters double as numbers.  An example: There was no separate “A” and #1. The Hebrew “aleph”  “אָ”,was both “A” and #1. In this manner, the  word for good, Tov, totals 17. Look up the Greek word, gematria. It defines the common  shared symbols by number and letter.  In Genesis everyday of creation is  described “Tov”.  (good), טוֹב.  it is formed by the math 4 x 4 number square.  Any row of 4 numbers totals 17. Also:

  • All potentialities for creation lie at the 4 fold core of this number square;
  • The numbers 1 to 16 total 136. Add them one after the other.
  • Now look at the square’s 4 central  numbers. Cross multiply each set. Then add them. As-  (10 x 7)  +  (6 x 11) = 136.

Next consideration.  The he 3 x 3 number square defines limits. It confines as it is, at least on appearance, the smallest number square.  On the last day of creation, God used the adjective “very” with the word, good.

“טוֹב “מְאֹד, “Very” has a 45 gematria.

Genesis I: 31 And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Very “מְאֹד” in Hebrew has a 45 gematria. The numbers 1- 9  total 45. It defines the 1-9 square of three. God limits by this number square. Fourfold blossoms into full potential. The 3 x 3 number square is the smallest. When creation is finished, God draws on the 3 x 3. It limits. Thus, the final day is described as: טוֹב מְאֹד. “Very good.” He created, but he also stopped.

Black Elk of the Sioux

Black Elk was a medicine man for the Oglala Sioux Indians. He related his story to John Neihardt.  In 1932 Neikhart published Black Elk Speaks: This is an excerpt. “Younger brother,” he said, “with the powers of the four quarters you shall walk”… (quote from an ancient grandfather speaking to Black Elk  in Chapter 3 of Black Elk Speaks). Never overlook the wisdom of our own American Indians.
