Reviving Antiquity. We are proud and pleased to announce we are refocusing our energies into two websites. Our web posts on DSOworks are currently at over 260 blogs. DSOworks will now be directed toward music, the performing arts and theater. All subjects relating specifically to antiquity will have its own website: revivingantiquity.com. Poetry by the Oquaga Spirit will appear on both.
REVIVING ANTIQUITY THROUGH MUSICAL TONES IN A NEW VISION OF PEACE
In the forgotten past was strong bond between music and architecture. From musical instruments dating from the 2nd and 3rd millenium B.C., we know vibrations per second of their pitches. These vibrations were translated by building designers into numbers of measurements prominent in their particular sites. A prime example is Stonehenge on the Wiltshire plains.
There were three main building phases, each between about 3100 BC and 1950 BC. The first circle, ~3000 BC, was made of timber. The post holes for the timber have been found. Around 2600 BC, the builders gave up timber in favour of stone. Most of the construction took place between 2640 and 2480 BC.
On page 127 Michell discusses how: The 17 surviving stone pillars are still suported by six curved stone lintels. He further states: As it once was, the circle of sarsen lintels was “one of the most exact and symmetrical works …ever created. The width is taken as 3,52 feet by many metrologists. Also, the distance from its center to the outside heel stone is 264 feet. Here are some its parallels to music:
- The old diatonic “C” vibrates 264 times/second.
- The old diatonic “F” vibrates 352 times/ second.
In closing: Our new website, revivingantiquity.com, will refocus on the unity art and science once share through number squares. Keep checking on its progress. The goal of the site is to work at redirecting mankind to a harmonious existence as once was envisioned in our forgotten and lost past. This, of course, is no small task. But as Hillel said: “If not now, when?”.
