**When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances,**and reduces it to its simplest terms. So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real. Probe the earth to see where your main roots run. ”

― Henry David Thoreau

*all incumbrances*. What you are about to read is an excerpt from my book,

*The Staff of God, vol. II*about how various civilizations around the world used this tiny balanced number grid for their engineering projects. I think I am one of the first to rediscover the use of this grid. My source for the various cultural measures is

*Historical Metrology*by A.E. Berriman. Here is the reference to my work that I wrote in iambic pentameter.

### The Stamping Mill of the Universe: Gnomons and Corners of the Square of Three

A gnomon is the part of the geometrical figure that remains after the corner 4 numbers are removed. In the above number square, 4,9,3,5 is the upper left corner. The gnomon that remains is defined by 2,7,6,8,1. One Irish mile = 6,720 feet. The product of 2 x 7 x 6 x 8 x 1 = 672. 672 x 10, the characteristic number of this square (any 2 opposite numbers total 10). We arrive at the number of feet in the Irish mile: 6,720.

The Welsh civilization (on the neighboring island), use the gnomon located on the upper right corner. The corner is defined by 9,2,5,7. When we multiply the numbers of its gnomon: 4 x 3 x 1 x 8 x 6 = 576. Then 576 x 10 = 5,760 ; the number of feet in the Welsh mile.

The foot is not an anachronism. Samples of a cubic inch of gold for weight measures from Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian civilizations are to be found at the British Museum. The 12 edges of the cube total 1 foot as its 12 edges x 1 inch/edge = 12″ or an English foot. In a blog where I’m limited to 500 words, this suffices. It puts the principle across that I elaborate on my *Staff of God vol. II *(Not yet available to the public). I have made a compendium of the correspondence of cultural measures derived from this balanced square. The point is, in one word, “balance.” Where there is balance, there is a lack of war, fighting and strife as no side gains the upper hand; they co-exist equal and in harmony like the scales of a balance. Incidentally, gnomically dividing the square of three was a custom and an important aspect of the Arabic school of Jabirism. Jabir Ibn Hayyim traced it roots back to Hermes; and Hermes traced this custom back to Ariel. In conclusion, *The Stamping Mill of the Universe* is the smallest and most basic, balanced number square that can be constructed; and when any civilization is based on balance, peace and plenty become its fruit.

I really enjoy reading through on this web site , it holds fantastic articles . “I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.” by Charles M. Schulz.

A thought: Don’t even look back for a moment. Just keep advancing in the direction of your higher dreams. Thanks you just gave mea topic for my next blog.
