Space Came 1st -Time, 2nd -in the Ancient View Space Came 1st -Time, 2nd -in the Ancient View.  Antiquity was guided by number squares and their centers. a magic square  is an square grid. “n”  is the number of cells on each side. filled with distinct positive integers. Each cell contains a different integer whose in each row, column and diagonal is equal.Below are the primary squares. They range from 3 x 3 to 9 x 9.  Higher number (magic) squares were also used.  All oddly number squares have only one number at the center.  Even centers have four numbers. Note that single  numbers 5 and 13 are at the center of the 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 respectively.   The even number square has 4 numbers at the center. They are 7.6.11 and 10.  The odd numbered square of 5 x 5 again has only one number at the center. It is number 13.  Thus, the 3 x 3 and 4 x 4 set the pattern. Higher number squares all repeat the pattern.  The nature of number squares provides the key to  how ancients analyzed space-time. The key to understanding lost civilizations is number squares.

Time is cyclic and fourfold in nature. I explain this in the internal links below.

Space Came 1st – Here’s Why

Space is at the core of reality. It is also infinite. The 3 x 3 magic square is central. Its opposite numbers always equal 10. These tens grow into infinity by a formula given in the internal link.  Time is distinctly fourfold in nature. Fourfold is at the core of cycles which gives shape to time. See links above. The 4 x 4 number square of Jupiter sets this fourfold pattern for time.  In the ancient view, since the 3 x 3 number square precedes the 4 x 4, space comes 1st.
