One Thread Spans the Globe in Antiquity. Who would think a simple rectangular courtyard in Tikal holds a key to understanding the past?

## Measurement Interchange on the Great Pyramid

Measurement Interchange on the Great Pyramid. The Great Pyramid uses different units of measure. British Antiquarian **John Frederick Carden Michell** (9 February 1933 – 24 April 2009) was an English author and esotericist who was a prominent figure in the development of the Earth mysteries movement. He discusses how the Great Pyramid was conceived by three primary measurement units: They were (1) the 12″ foot. (2) The 1.71818…foot long, shorter Egyptian cubit. (3) The 2.7272… foot long megalithic yard. In his *View over Atlantis*, he states that:

“The important discoveries about the past have been made not so much through the present refined techniques of treasure hunting and grave robbery, but through the intuition of those whose faith in poetry led them to scientific truth.”

### This is the Measurement Interchange for the Great Pyramid- It Spearheaded a Former Golden Age

I credit the Lennie Lenape NE American Indians for my discovery for my discovery the hidden engineering capabilities of the 3 x 3 number square. An Indian spirit guide accompanied me on walks around Oquaga Lake. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House over some 15 summer seasons. She instructed me on the infinite codes hidden in this number square. Read the internal link if you wish to understand the math:

## Tens: Here’s the Formula on How Tens Grow into Infinity

### Here is the Measurement Interchange

- Go around the perimeter overlapping two number at the time: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. The square base of the Great Pyramid measures 440 cubits on each side.
- Go around the perimeter again by single numbers and add them: 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 40. Add the numbers of the two perimeters thus far” as 440 + 40 = 480. The height of the un untruncated Great Pyramid is 480 feet.
- Add opposite numbers around the perimeter three at the time as 438 + 672 = 1110. This number-1,110- can be found in 7 more ways. The perimeter around the Great Pyramid is also 1,110 megalithic yards.

Thus, we have found the functioning of the three primary units of antiquity demonstrated at the Great Pyramid through this simple number square. Speaking of Michell’s mention of poetry, I have a book of poetry called *The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. Here is a sample.*

## Mayan Egyptian Connection Spans Atlantic Ocean

Mayan Egyptian Connection Spans Atlantic Ocean. Who were the Mayans? The Maya developed their first civilization in the Preclassic period.^{[9]} Scholars continue to discuss when this era of Maya civilization began. Discoveries of Maya occupation at Cuello, Belize have been carbon dated to around 2600 BC.^{[10]} The civilization still had great endurance. Look back some 3,000 years. Mayan Tikal was around from 250 to 700 AD. At its height during the Late Classic, the Tikal city polity had expanded to have a population of well over 100,000.^{[37]}

### Egyptian Mayan Connection

We have no written evidence of connection between the two cultures and their countries. But, we do have similarity by measurement. Many are too fixated on proof by written record. They forget that numbers and letters once shared the same symbol. This practice of using the same symbol for both is called *gematria-* a Greek word. Only our modern languages (except Hebrew) have separate symbols for both. In effect, when you made a measurement, you also could imply a (1) A word. (2) A phrase. (3) An entire sentence. (4) Even a larger unit of writing translated into numbers.

### Great Court at Tikal

A surviving Mayan great court is at Tikal. It outlines a rectangle. East to West is 400 feet in length. North to South is 250 feet in width. The courtyard is flanked by platforms, large temples and pyramids. The ratio of the length to the width of the Tikal courtyard is 8:5. Note 400/250 = 8/5 = 1.6. Compare this to the Great Pyramid of Egypt. One side of the square base is smaller Egyptian 440 cubits of 1.71818…feet. Its truncated height is 275 of the same sized cubits. 440÷275 = 8/5 = 1.6.

### Comparing the Great Pyramid’s Dates to the Mayan first civilization in the Preclassic period.^{[9]}

Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang. and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built around **2560 BC**. As stated above, Mayan carbon dating goes back to 2600 B.C. The dimensions of the Mayan courtyard and of the Great Pyramid had the same ratio of 8 to 5. These numbers are part of the Fibonacci series:

Leonardo Bonacci who was born 600 years before Beethoven. The Fibonacci series, named after him. is colored in red. Beethoven used the Fibonacci numbers in composing his fifth symphony. In the internal link underneath, I relate Fibonacci numbers to ancient number squares. I don’t know that Fibonacci ever made the connection?

### BEETHOVEN’S DELIBERATE USE OF THE FIBONACCI NUMBERS

Behind *Leonardo Bonacci*’s back, the highest red number is 55. Each new number is the sum of the preceding two. Number 34 precedes 55. So, let’s continue the series: 34 + 55 = 89. Next, 55 + 89 = 144. Next 89 + 144 = 233 (the length of Beethoven’s opening section). Next 144 + 233 = 377 (which the length of Beethoven’s development section). Beethoven, being the brilliant genius that he was, knew exactly what he was doing. Note in red numbers. Number five is the 1st separated number. It is not consecutive. Almost every composer uses phrases in 4 bars. The genius of Beethoven made the opening phrase 5 bars long on purpose. He knew what he was doing!

### The Best Architecture and Music are at Least Based on Tradition

The Egyptian Mayan connection of the 8 to five ratio is found with Beethoven. Of course, in this symphony Beethoven uses many phrases also use 8 bar phrases. When we listen to his 5th symphony it sounds natural. Can you imagine how he must have struggled to make the bar length come out right? Leonard Bernstein says of Beethoven and the 1st movement in *The Joy of Music*: “he will give away his life just to make sure that one note follows another inevitably.” In conclusion, I think that in addition to an even greater appreciation of Beethoven, we have graphic proof the relationship between music, numbers and architecture in this post: The *Mayan Egyptian Connection* and even more. This is why music lessons, theory and composition increase aptitude for mathematics.

## Fibonacci Forgot the Number Squares

## Fibonacci Inversion is Like Musical Inversion of Intervals

Fibonacci Inversion is Like Musical Inversion of Intervals. . Inversion means to reverse the order, be it of numbers or the two tones of a musical interval. We also have melodic inversion. An example will be given by J.S. Bach. A unison inverts to an octave as 1 + 8 = 9. The second inverts to the seventh as 2 + 7 = 9. The third inverts to a sixth as 3 + 6 = 9. The fourth inverts to a fifth as 4 + 5 = 9. Inverting music is further discussed in my internal link.immediately below.

## Music and Math Share the Rule of 9’s

Also, inversion also means turning the melodic intervals up-side-down.

### Fibonacci Inversion is Also Like Inverted Triads

What are the Fibonacci numbers?

In mathematics, the **Fibonacci numbers** are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the **Fibonacci sequence**, and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones:^{[1]}^{[2]}

- {\displaystyle 1,\;1,\;2,\;3,\;5,\;8,\;13,\;21,\;34,\;55,\;89,\;144,\;\ldots }

For the Fibonacci inversions, I take the 1st four numbers: 1,1,2, 3. Each of these Fibonacci numbers with its inversion totals **four**. In similar fashion each musical interval with its total equals the same number. The number is different but the principle is the same.

The Fibonacci inversion of “1′ becomes “3”. This happens for each “1”. The inversion of “2′ becomes 2. This number inverts to itself. The musical parallel is as an octave inverts to a unison. Next, the inversion of “3” becomes “1”.

In order, the inverted numbers of 1,1,2,3, are 3,3,2,1. Now we have to points to make (1) Ancient philosophers often either separated successive numbers and/or placed them together.(2) Ancient numbers squares give rise to the Fibonacci series. The internal link explains, in depth, how Fibonacci numbers dominate 4 x 4 number square.

## Remarkable Foursome is a Mathematical Wonder

I keep within the ancient tradition of number squares for this next explanation. Take the first four inverted Fibonacci numbers, 3,3,2,1 – as a straight read. You have 3321. The is the numerical total of the 9 x 9 number square of the Moon. This square (with other ancient squares) is pictured below. It houses all the numbers from 1 to 81. Any two opposite numbers total 82. My page was copied from an earlier blog about the “Neolithic Periodic Chart”. Note the obvious vertical sequence of numbers on the periodic chart. It is found on the diagonal on odd numbered squares. They are clearly reinforced in reinforced black ink. The numbers are 2,8,8,18,18,32,32, …

So what is my conclusion? Again, there once was a former advanced civilization. It was based on number squares. Times were then peaceful and harmonious. Somehow it was destroyed. Could it have been the continent of Atlantis that Plato mentions in his writings?

## Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism in a Major Way

Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism in a Major Way. By encouraging poetic expression, you enable Romanticism. What qualities are then enhanced with Romanticism?:

- Love.
- Chivalry.
- Courtesy.

Romanticism in the fine arts is feeling oriented: That is, feelings on a grand scale. German painter and author Caspar David Friedrich expresses it this way: The artist’s feeling is his law”.^{[10]} Our featured picture was painted by the same C.P. Friedrich.

### Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism for Me

The featured painting parallels an inspiration I was given about fog. A spirit on Oquaga Lake dictated her poetry to me. I was the piano player for many years at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. This employment covered some 15 summer seasons. The poetry book is called *The Oquaga Spirit Speaks*. I have memorized every poem. At sometime in the future, I will do recitations. The Catskills Mountains in New York have inspired many writers. Among them we find Washington Irving. Below is an internal link.

Oquaga Lake was once inhabited by American Indians. The tribe was the Lennie Lenape. Women ran the tribe. I believe the spirit of the lake is an American Indian female. *Fingers of Fog* a sample of the poetry she related to me.

#### Washington Irving Archives – DSO Works

*Washington Irving*was among them. He wrote The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

### Fingers of Fog

Fingers of fog moving quickly

Gliding across the lake.

Almost at jogging speed

Leaving no apparent wake.

Why are they scampering about

At this early morning time?

Thousand of fingers in motions

Moving gracefully with rhyme.

Perhaps each one is a spirit

Released from the depths of the spring:

Enjoying an hour of freedom

Almost ready to take wing.

This spring fed lake is enchanted,

As such water bodies are.

I actually saw its essence-

While viewing the Morning Star.

## Musical Ornamentation was Once Quite Extensive

Musical Ornamentation was Once Quite Extensive. I refer to the baroque era. It also was quite a complex art. As you read, keep in mind music is always a litmus test for what is happening with civilization. Below is a portrait of Louis XIV. He was called the Sun King. His court at Versailles signaled the beginnings of the Classical Baroque era in art. Included in these arts were architecture, music, and fashion. Also, we have a diagram of an excerpt from Chopin’s Nocturne Op. 27 #2 across from Louis XIV. Chopin’s music fraught with exquisite details: Just like the Sun King’s dress. Chopin, having a French father, strongly identified with French culture. He lived for a while in Paris:

Frédéric Chopin was of both French and Polish background. He grew up in Warsaw. After the **1830 November** Uprising in Poland, Chopin settled in Paris. At age 21, he took up his residence in Paris. He would live in nine other places there until his untimely death at age 39. Even if you do not play piano, look at the musical illustration. It simply looks quite frilly. A few notes could replace the incredible ornamentation use by Chopin. The music in sound parallels the dress of the King.

### Chopin – Nocturne Op. 27 No. 2 (Rubinstein) – YouTube

But wait. As if that wasn’t complex enough!

### Two Schools of Musical Ornamentation

In addition to the French there was the Italian. The French school demanded being precise. This included with all the ports de voix, cadences, mordents, trills…

In contrast the Italian school permitted arbitrary ornaments. Schooling was combined with personal imagination. This included a number of different ways chords could be rolled.

The great musical bastion of the baroque era was J.S. Bach. He was quite familiar with French ornaments. It is known that he copied the ornaments of Dieupart. However, at times he used those of the Italian school. Like all great composers, his interests were not limited.

Final point: Beautiful melody, as Chopin and other Romantic writers once wrote, is returning. The American melody parallel is the Big Band music of the 1930’s. An education in ornamentation is part of the total package. Many more blogs will be upcoming on this subject. Keep checking DSOworks.com. Exciting musical events are in the making!

## Geometrical Theology Relates to Number Squares

Geometrical Theology Relates to Number Squares.* God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere*. This was stated by Nicholas Cuse- **Nicholas of Cusa** (1401 – August 11, 1464) was a German philosopher, theologian, jurist, astronomer, cardinal and mystic of the Catholic Church. . Later Voltaire quoted the same definition. Voltaire rejected Blaise Pascal‘s philosophy of man’s depravity. He tried to steer a middle course**: **That meant that man was able to find moral virtue through reason. Because of this criticism of the church, he was **denied** burial in church ground. I use these two examples for the quote. for two contrasting reasons

- This is because the quote by Nicholas was religious and traditional.
- Voltaire’s was not religious in a traditional sense.

This blog offers a novel interpretation of the above quote. An archaeologist digs for lost artifacts. A philosopher digs for lost knowledge. There is only one number square whose center is everywhere. You could say the center even usurps the circumference when the square is encased by concentric circles. This is as illustrated in the featured picture.

### How Geometrical Theology Relates to the 4 x 4 Number Square

Both the center and circumference of the of the 4 x 4 number square are filled by the essence of number 34. First, at the central point of any even number square are four numbers. This first even 4 x 4 square is the prime example. 7,10,11 and 6 occupy the center. Center’s sum = 34. Any straight row of 4 numbers also totals 34. This also applies to the four rows that make the perimeter. Hence each of the the four quadrants of the circle around this number square total 34. Thirty-four is one of the Fibonacci numbers.

Center total: 7 + 10 + 6 + 11 = 34.

Quadrant Perimeter totals:

- 4 + 14 + 15 + 1 =34.
- 1 + 12 + 8 + 13 = 34
- 13 + 3 + 2 + 16 = 34
- Finally, 16 + 5 + 9 + 4 = 34.

### More on Geometrical Theology Based on Number 34

If God’s center is everywhere, that means it is also defines the circumference. The center is literally everywhere in this number square. Therefore, this number square becomes the numerical symbolic translation of the featured quote: *God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere*. The center by number 34 occupies the quadrants of the the circumference. Also see internal link below.

## Countless Opportunities Appeared in Difficult Times

Countless Opportunities Appeared in Difficult Times. I’m referring to the Great Depression era: The early 1930’s. Conductor, violinist, composer David Rubinoff took it to the limit. Let’s begin with the * The Chase and Sanborn Hour. *It was a radio show umbrella title for a series. It included US comedy and variety radio shows. The half-hour to one hour show was sponsored by Standard Brands‘ Chase and Sanborn Coffee. It usually aired Sundays on NBC from 8 pm to 9 pm during the years 1929 to 1948. Violinist David Rubinoff (September 13, 1897 – October 6, 1986) became a regular in January 1931. He was introduced as “Rubinoff and His Violin.”

### Countless Opportunities Included Concerts and Mass Media

Joseph Rubin, curator of the Ted Lewis Big Band Museum, contacted me for a lecture. This was last June 2, 2018 at the Circleville High School. He had read on our website, DSOworks.com, I worked with Rubinoff for 15 some years. I had been blogging about my professional association with this master conductor/violinist/ composer. Below are a couple of internal links. He graciously asked me to give a lecture about our association. Joseph also arranged for me to perform some of my arrangements with Rubinoff with violin maestro Steven Greenman.

Dave Rubinoff’s success didn’t stop with the Chase and Sandborn Hour. He was also the orchestral conductor of the Paramount Theater in New York. He conducted for Parmount Pictures in Hollywood. He gave spectacular concerts. These included one for 225,000 people at Grant Park in Chicago. What made Rubinoff rich? Times were difficult. How could one acquire wealth? The public needed the comfort that beautiful, quality music offered. He took advantage of the countless opportunities the times presented in this regard. This is good news for serious musicians. We need comforting and beautiful music once more. Please keep checking this website. Big events are in the making. `

## Golden Anniversary Number Belongs to Venus

Golden Anniversary Number Belongs to Venus. Does Venus have a number by which you can call on her? Yes. To find the Golden Anniversary number, look at its number square. The 7 x 7 belongs to Venus. Each of the ancient 7 planets had its own square of numbers. Sandro Botticelli painted the featured picture. It is entitled: *Geboorte van Venus* (1485–1486). Translated from Dutch: *Birth of Venus.* The painting contains 7 real flesh and blood figures. Botticelli invokes the 7 of this number square. Its dimensions, pictured below, are 7 x 7.

Now let’s see where the silver and gold anniversaries come from. Of course, Venus is the goddess of Love. Any 2 opposite numbers total 50. That is the number of the Golden Anniversary. The number of the Silver Anniversary, 25, sits at the center. Good news: Once you reach 25, by this ancient planetary model of Venus, you have a clear shot at 50.

But wait. The 7 x 7 number square goes further. All its numbers, added together, total 1225. Remember 12/25 is Christmas Day.

### Golden Anniversary Number Defines the Jubilee Year

### What is the Jubilee Year?

The jubilee year is defined in the Bible. It is found in Leviticus 25:8, 10. At the end of seven Sabbatical cycles the year was celebrated. All slaves were freed. Real property was returned to its hereditary owner. The scripture says: *“You shall number seven sabbaticals….making 49 years…And you shall sanctify the 50th year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land…It shall be a jubilee to you*.

Here’s wishing everybody a happy silver and golden anniversary- and much more this upcoming year. Feel free to share with friends.

## Cosmic Eight Unites Spiritual and Physical Realms

Cosmic Eight Unites Spiritual and Physical Realms. This statement implies numbers are the highest reality. This view is reminiscent of the ancient Pythagorean School. “Harmony of the spheres” was the name applied to this concept. ^{[93]} It maintained that the planets and stars move according to mathematical equations. Ratios of these motions corresponded to musical intervals. Music was created by the motion of planets an inaudible symphony.^{[93]} . *Music of the spheres* usesmot only harmonic, but also mathematical or religious concepts. ^{}

### Cosmic Eight Has a Special Place in Pool

The 1st and primary or strongest overtone is the octave. Appropriately, Dr. Billiards gives a relevant demonstration of the nature of harmonics below. The note one octave higher (eight diatonic tones) than the fundamental or primary note is the 1st overtone. You can hear its strength on the youtube demonstration.

### So What are some examples of the Cosmic Eight?

- Eight numbers the measures in a phrase of music .
- It defines the fundamental overtone of music.
- Eight electrons in the outside orbital of an atom has greatest stability.
- At the Great Pyramid each side of the square based is 8 Great Cubits. A Great Cubit = 55 smaller Egyptian cubits (1.71818…) feet.
- One of the 5 Platonic solids is the cube. Eight corners give it definition. A number of holy sites were conceived as cubes. A prime example is the Ka’aba of Islam. Also, the back 3rd of the Temple of Solomon was where the Holy Ark was kept. It possibly was cubic.
- Eight, as an octagon, is considered to be a compromise between the circle and the square.
- The Hebrew verb for love is
*Ahav.*Spelled with Hebrew letter*s.*its gematria is eight. [אהב]. Gematria is the doubling of letters and numbers with the same symbol. Aleph is 1. Beis is 2. Hei is 5.*Love*, therefore, totals 8. Notice, Ahav’s 1,2, and 5 are Fibonacci numbers. God is love as John stated. Why not call on our Creator as love, or the Hebraic Ahav? Below # 8, & #9 are internal links on the subject. My insights came in the mountains by Oquaga Lake pictured below. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. The lake was the former home of the Lennie Lenape tribe. ### Ahav, “love”, is a Signpost that Points to Wisdom – DSO Works

### Ahav Archives – DSO Works

Conclusion: “8” is where the spiritual meets the physical as depicted in the featured picture. It’s the point at which love and Creation meet. Isn’t this the best place to be?
