Fourfold Orientation Comes from a Number Square. Even numbered squares of antiquity have 4 central numbers. The 4 x 4 number square is key. It is the first even numbered square. The compass also orients by fourfold. It is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions (or points). Usually, a diagram called a compass rose shows the directions north, south, east, and west. On the compass it is as abbreviated initials N,S,E,W:
- The number square balances and orients by numbers.
- The compass balances and orients direct or geography.
Fourfold Orientation and How the Central Numbers Hold All Potential
The four numbers at the center of the 4 x 4 number square are are: 6, 11, 7 and 10. Do the following operations:
- Draw a diagonal so that 6 and 11 are crossed by a diagonal line.
- Then cross 7 and 10 by another. Multiply these two sets of central numbers. We get 66 and 70.
- Then add both sets together. Thus, (6 x 11) + (7 x 10) = 136.
- Next, add all the numbers from one to sixteen. Their total is also 136.
This means the center of the 4 x 4 number square computed in such a fashion, holds the entire sum of numbers of that square. This is also true for all even numbered squares. It is a mathematical law.
Creation in Genesis draws on the featured picture. Our Creator describes his work on each day as “good.” In Hebrew letters doubled as numbers. They shared the same symbol. “Good” in Hebrew is Tov (טוב). Viewed as numbers, these letters total 17. Hebrew words are read from right to left. The first letter is 9. The second is 6. The third symbol is for #2. Thus, 9 + 6 + 2 = 17. Next, look at the featured picture. Any two opposite numbers around the perimeter total 17. Examples: (1 + 16) or (12 + 5) or (8 + 9). This was God’s favored number square for Genesis. Thus, having a “good day” is having a productive day. Is that good for business or what?
Fourfold Orientation is also Basic to Mankind
A fourfold compass regarding the psyche is basic according to Carl G. Jung. It explains the means through which the conscious orients to experience. Below, the seasons, is another.
- Sensation is sense perception. It tells you something exists.
- Thinking tells you what it is.
- Feeling determines whether or not it is agreeable.
- Intuition tells you where it came from and where it’s going.
