Common Musical Geometrical Ratios

Common Musical Geometrical Ratios. First, what is a ratio?

common musical geometrical ratios
Ratio example of intervals that make a perfect musical fourth.

Musically, in the diagram above: Every time a higher tone vibrates four times, the lower vibrates three. This creates the sound of a perfect fourth. All the perfect intervals and most harmonious tones of nature can be found at a bowling alley. Also, in the link below I explore the ratios of 6 to 5 found at Atlantis.  The size of an interval between two notes may be measured by the ratio of their frequencies. When a musical instrument is tuned using a just intonation tuning system, the size of the main intervals can be expressed by small-integer ratios, such as:

1:1 (unison),

2:1 (octave),

3:2 (perfect fifth),

4:3 (perfect fourth),

5:4 (major third),

6:5 (minor third).

Below are the only the Perfect Intervals found by bowling pins in an alley

  • The unison becomes the single, front standing pin.
  • The perfect octave is the 1st pin divided by the 2 pins in the 2nd row: 2:1 is the higher octave.
  • A perfect fifth is the ratio of the 3 pins in the third row divided by the two in the second: 3/2.
  • As mentioned, the 4 divided by the 3 makes the ratio of the perfect fourth.
 Ratios are often used to describe other items as: The ratio of width to height of standard-definition television.

In mathematics, a ratio is a relationship between two numbers indicating how many times the first number contains the second.[1]

Common Musical Geometrical Ratios of 5 and 6 were used by Atlanteans!

Clues about Atlantis are also found in the Temples on Malta
The ratio of the minor 3rd is 6 to 5.  It was the basis of a multitude of ancient measures. Read the internal link about Atlantis.  One of my books, The Ancient Engineers’ Philosophy: The Pinnacle of Thought in the Unified Culture of Ancient Builders, is placed in a triangle at a temple in Malta built circa 3500 B.C.

 

Clues in the Search for Atlantis Come With # 5 and #6.

When it comes to music, Atlantis lives!

Plato wrote of Atlantis in Timaeus that numbers 5 and 6  were prominently featured: People were gathered every 5th and 6th years alternately: Thus giving equal honor to odd and even numbers. The gathering of the population was for judgement and atonement.

Faith Comments in poetry by the Oquaga Spirit

Faith Comments in poetry by the Oquaga Spirit. What is faith? Nature speaks. On Oquaga Lake she speak a lot. She talks on cloudy days. She talks sunny days. I was fortunate to make the acquaintance of the Oquaga Spirit  on hikes in the Catskill  mountains. Oquaga Lake in surrounded by forests. My spirit on the lake was a female. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe, The internal link explains how the women were in charge of the community. The spirit spoke in the 1st poem in 1985. Ten years later, 1995, she spoke once more of faith. This poem also will be the subject of a 2nd blog.  Faith and knowledge help spiritual growth.[10]

Faith comments by the Oquaga spirit.
“Lights on porch and dock and hotel waterside, glitter around the shore- markers do they provide”.- At Scott’s Oquaga Lake House- a place of total peace and beauty.
Religion was primarily an individual matter for Woodland Indian people. It permeated everyday life. The world of the Great Lakes Indians was filled with a host of spirits (manido; plural manidog). They inhabited trees, plants, birds, and animals. I have one internal link. For a span of over 15 years, I was their house piano player.

Cosmic phenomena were considered spirits. These included the sun, the moon, thunder, lightning, the four winds, and the thunderbirds. The Great Lakes Indians gave offerings of tobacco.  These offerings were constantly given. They had many purposes.  Among them:

  • Protect the peoples’ health.
  • Assure their safety in storms,
  • Request help from the manidog.
  • Express their gratitude for past favors.

 Faith Comments on  “Faith” – Different takes. Here is the earlier one of  1985

Image result for wiki commons picture of a storm
The Heavens are Overcast. 

The wise know that the Sun shines behind the clouds.
Though the day be dark, they believe in light.
Knowing that clouds, no matter how thick, will disperse;
And clouds are only temporal; while the Sun endures.

Those without faith falter when the skies darken.
Seeing the heavens overcast, they forget the source.
And become despondent, thinking the day is done.
Their sight is stopped short by mere fluffy veils.

Those unfortunates scoff at the utopian belief in faith.
For them the vapor of clouds is more real than the divine.
And if there is no overcast, they’ll sow the seeds of rain;
Making reality confirm to the clouds in their heads.

Clouds are but thin impostors above us.
A mask to fool those of little faith.
For even in the thick of a full-fledged storm.
The eternal source of happiness is somewhere shining.

Faith requires the patience to out wait the darkness.
The fury of winds, rain and hail combined
Often come to test the tenacity of man.
But in the face of faith, the storm will fade.

five hundred and fortieth post is about man

Five hundred fortieth post is all About Man

Five hundred fortieth post is all About Man. Here’s the story as an excerpt from my  The Staff of God Vol II. A number of Middle Eastern languages have the same symbol for numbers and letters. In this manner a numerical value can be equated with a particular number. This is called by the ancient Greek word, gematria.

 

Five Hundred Fortieth post is all About Adam or man.
Man equates with number 45. This number defines the 3 x 3 number square (see below).  The above is the key to Hebraic gematria. Here’s how it works:

Five hundred Fortieth Post Numerically Parallels the 5 Sided Pentagon

The gematria of the first man, Adam is 45.
This number has kinship with the 3 x 3 number square.
The sum of the numbers that comprise the square,
Being the sum 1 thru 9, totals 45.

The word for Adam is actually set up like the square.
Aleph = 1;  dalet = 4; and mem = 40.
Aleph + dalet  total the central 5.
Mem equals the sum of the perimeter of 40.

The square of three is like a lump of clay,
From which right and left limbs can be molded.
Using polarities up and down by hundreds
Example, 951 + 159, total 1110.
(That is the sum of 555 + 555)

Multiple balanced polarities  can take the shape
As with the 951 axis of the head and torso:
438 + 672 can be viewed as  the left and right arms.
The reverse 834 + 276 can be the left and right legs.
(all sums equal 1110.)

Five hundred fortieth post

The 3 x 3 number square utilizes opposite polarities by number. Man’s  polarities are left and right: Arms and legs swing back and forth while walking.  Power in martial art utilizes strength through polarity: One arm thrusts forward while the other goes backward in a set manner.

Here is an internal. The 1st sentence of Genesis uses three polarities. One is obvious and two are hidden:

  1. By single numbers the perimeter is 40.
  2. Double and overlap the perimeter numbers. You get 440.
  3. Triple and overlap the perimeter numbers corner to corner. You get 2,220. The total of the 3 perimeters is 2700.
  4. Add all three totals The 1st sentence of Genesis totals 2,701. Thus, 40 + 440 + 2220 = 2700. We add the One to the opening sentence of the Torah.

rebuilt Steinway at the Gasparilla Inn

Rebuilt Steinway at the Gasparilla Inn

Rebuilt Steinway at the Gasparilla Inn. Wow! I just played a wedding dinner reception last October 6, 2018. Master technician Larry Keckler recently reconditioned and rebuilt  the vintage Steinway grande. He ordered the finest parts from Germany for this exciting project The Steinway dates back to 1924.  It takes a number of tunings for the piano to hit its stride. The total time elapsed since his initial work has been about a year and a half. My gosh, now the piano is simply incredible!

super Steinway Grand at the Gasparilla Inn
Gasparilla Inn on the isle of Boca Grande is the jewel of the South.

I recently played for a wedding dinner reception. Now the piano has both a golden and velvety touch for the pianist and sound for the diners. The Inn offers a royal taste of the old South. I’m particularly inspired to play the ragtime music of Scott Joplin. His music is dated to the same era. Everything is happy!

Greats of the past and present have graced the halls of the Gasparilla Inn. On December 20th I will begin my 10th year as the dining room pianist.  This will be 6 nights weekly.  The newly rebuilt Steinway has been magnificently reconditioned. It dates back to 1925. The Inn dates back to 1911.

David believes music, should be all about beauty, enjoyment and relaxation.  Thus he plays the music of  Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Michel Legrand, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Elton John, the Beatles, Scott  and any composer(s) who write(s) memorable melodies.   He even plays piano transcriptions from the King’s Speech (Beethoven’s 7th Symphony), Gustav Holst’s Jupiter, from the Planets. Also on the agenda is music by Chopin, Rachmaninoff,  Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel and J.S. Bach.

Kids are happy to hear his selections from the movies such asStar Wars, Batman, Harry Potter, Home Alone, Close Encounters of a Third Kind, and Jurassic Park. Henry Mancini’s Pink Panther and the Baby Elephant Walk are as popular as fireworks on the 4th of July. They are loved by children and adults. See you there. My dates are Dec 20 through Easter. I play 6 nights weekly. Oh yes, I have room for one or two piano students in Sarasota.

Remen Measure was Known by Moses

Remen Measure was Known by Moses. According to the Hebrew Bible, he was adopted by an Egyptian princess.  Later in life became the leader of the Israelites and lawgiver.  He is generally credited with the authorship of the Torah, or acquisition of the Torah. His position in Egypt gave him access to knowledge possessed by  the higher echelons of royalty. He knew source of the remen, in at least two different mathematical ways, is the 3 x 3 number square.

Decoding the 1st sentence of Genesis is a full time job.

Canon of measures Archives – DSO Works

dsoworks.com/tag/canon-of-measures/

 

1.2165 feet = 1 remen
1.2165 feet x √2 = 1.72 feet – one royal cubit
1.2165 feet x √3 = 2.107 feet- one Palestinian cubit
1.2165 feet x  √4 = 2.43 feet – one Roman pace
1.2165 feet x  √5 = 2.72 feet – one megalithic yard etc., up to

 Here is the 1st approach to the Remen measure:

  • Add the numbers around the central 5 (I term these numbers p1 which stands for perimeter one). The eight numbers total 40.
  • Then add them two at the time overlapping the numbers. I call this p-2. This stands for perimeter two: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. Now take the number three at the time.
  • Add them 3 at the time. Overlap the corners. I call this p-3. This stands for perimeter three:  492 + 276 + 618 +  834 = 2,220. Then (p-1)   is 40 + (P-2)  is 440 + ( P-3) 2,220  = 2700.
  • Finally, divide the 2700 total of p1 + p2 + p3 by/ p3(2220): Thus, 40 + 440 + 2220/2220 = 1.2162…virtually one Egyptian remen.

2nd Approach to Arriving at the Remen Measure

remen measure
Everything that John Michell wrote by himself and with Christine Rhone is a must read. He explains the Canon of Measures. I simply applied it to the 3 x 3 number square.

Add the numbers on the square above three at the time. Do this vertically and horizontally as follows:

  • Horizontally: (492 + 618) +  (357 + 753) +  (816 + 294) = 3330.
  • Vertically: (438 + 672) +  (951 + 159) + (438 + 672) = 3330.

Next, total the single numbers, 1 to 9,  in the number square:

  • 1 + 2 + 3+ 4+ 5+ 6+ 7+8 + 9 = 45.
  •  Take the sum of the vertical and horizontal totals given above: 3330 + 3330  = 6660, Then divide 6660 by  the 45 total. The quotient is 148.  The square root of 148 is exactly the numbers of 10 Egyptian remens by number= 12.165…

For the 2nd way, 148  is the key number. So, how does this tie into Moses? In Hebrew Passover is spelled פסח. The 1st letter (pei)  is the glyph for  80. The 2nd (sameck) is the glyph for  60. The third (chet) represents 8. Thus, 80 + 60 + 8 = 148. Passover and the remen measure are thus tied together.

How did I learn to work the mathematical  intricacies  of the 3 x 3 number square? From an American Indian spirit on Oquaga Lake. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe. On walks in the Oquaga Lake area, the spirit communicated ancient secrets to me. The tribe once lived around the lake. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.

Measurement Overview by the Traditional 3 x 3 Square

Measurement Overview by the Traditional 3 x 3 Square. This simplest of number squares has an infinity of hidden number codes. I currently have some 535 posts on DSOworks.com. They are divided primarily between music and this simplest of of ancient number squares.  Of course, music and measure overlap. With so many blogs, perspective is difficult. Who has the time to even quickly glance at so much material? The purpose of this blog is simply to provide a measurement overview of the source of measures. A few of the hidden codes are in this internal link.

Artist's reconstructed Troy in Turkey in our measurement overview
Overall rectangular part of Troy is 220 megalithic yards x 165 megalithic yards.  It traces back to the 3 x 3 number square.
  • With Troy, here is the computation. Follow the numbers on the square.  43 + 67 = 110. Backwards 34 + 76 = 110. Total is 220. This works with any opposite columns of two numbers.  Megalithic yards were assigned to this number. It defines the length rectangular part of the citadel.
  • Next, take two numbers at the time again as follows. Watch the number square with three pairs of numbers. 49 + 35 +  81 = 165.  Take them in reverse: 94 + 53 + 18 = 165. It works the same way if you work the numbers horizontally.

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

Both actual measurements of ancient sites and units of measurement came from the 3 x 3 number square. It was once the backbone of a civilization that was destroyed by a cataclysm. A Golden age of peace and plenty once marked this time. Perhaps it is time to return to a Golden Age guided by a simple number square?

Remarkable Foursome is a Mathematical Wonder

Remarkable Foursome is a Mathematical Wonder. It presents quite a take on the Fibonacci number series.  It develops into what is called the Golden Ratio. But the fascination with the Golden Ratio is not confined just to mathematicians. Biologists, artists, musicians, historians, architects, psychologists, and even mystics have pondered and debated the basis of its ubiquity and appeal. The Golden Ratio has inspired thinkers of all disciplines like no other number in the history of mathematics.[14] What sequence defines this series?  Eventually the second of two consecutive numbers divided by the 1st = the Golden ratio: φ is the symbol  for this ratio.

remarkable foursome
Above is a graph with squares.  The side lengths are successive Fibonacci numbers.

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in a specific integer sequence.  Their defining feature is every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones:[1][2]}

At 1st glance the “foursome” number square and Fibonacci seem in-congruent. But the remarkable foursome fuses the numbers on the 4 x 4 square as follows: Examine it numbers vertically left to right:

  • First row: 4 + 9 = 13. Then  5 + 16 = 21.
  • Second row: 14 + 7 = 21.  Then 11 + 2 = 13.
  • Third row 15 + 6 =21. Then 10 + 3 = 13.
  • Fourth row: 1 + 12 = 13. Then 7 + 13 = 21.

All total are either 13 or 21.  Of course, 13 = 21 = 34. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Fibonacci numbers on the square go further. Again look at the numbers vertically. Consider the four vertical rows again. This time add every other number as follows:

  • Row one: 4 + 5 = 9. Then  9 + 16 = 25.
  • Row two: 14 + 11 = 25. Then 7 + 2 = 9.
  • Row three: 15 + 10 = 25. Then 6 + 3 = 9.
  • Row four. 1 + 8 = 9. Then 12 + 13 = 25.

I know what my reader is thinking: 25 and 9 are not in the Fibonacci series. But, yes they are.  Three and five are both Fibonacci numbers:

  • 3² = 9.
  • 5² = 25.

 Mathematician Mark Barr proposed using the first letter in the name of Greek sculptor Phidiasphi, to symbolize the golden ratio. Usually, the lowercase form (φ or φ) is used.

 

Michael Maestlin, first to publish a decimal approximation of the golden ratio, in 1597.

The golden ratio has been claimed to have held a special fascination for at least 2,400 years, although without reliable evidence.[13] According to Mario Livio.

 Number Square of the Remarkable Foursome

Number squares were once the backbone of a lost civilization. This time marked a Golden Age of peace and plenty. Tradition associates the 4 x 4 number square with Jupiter. Each planet had its own set of numbers.  Jupiter was the leader of the Olympian Gods; Jupiter means “Jovial King” and/or “Father of Thunder.” Jupiter is associated with luck and good fortune. It is the mentor/Guru /teacher of gods. More on internal link below.

Different Takes on Faith

Different Takes on Different Years on Faith by the Spirit

Different Takes on Different Years on Faith by the Spirit. I spent many summers on Oquaga Lake. My work was as a house piano player. This was at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. A talkative spirit made itself known at the Lake House.  It communicated by poetry.

  • In the 1980’s it preferred quatrains in iambic pentameter. No rhyme was used. This poetry collection is called “The Book of Balance.”
  • In the 1990s  this spirit spoke in quatrains. Rhyme and triple meter were used. This poetic anthology is called “The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.” It is available as a product on DSOworks.com.

This post and one to follow will present poems on the subject of faith. One will be from each collection.  Also, an internal link is immediately below. It offers background on the spirit.  I think it is a female from the Lennie Lenape Tribe.

Extreme Longevity, at least in lyrics.

Extreme Longevity for Humans -is it Possible?

Extreme Longevity for Humans -is it Possible? George and Ira Gershwin bring up the subject in their opera, Porgy and Bess. I quote Ira Gershwin’s  lyrics from It Ain’t Necessarily So.

Methus’lah lived nine hundred years
Methus’lah lived nine hundred years
But who calls dat livin’
When no gal will give in
To no man what’s nine hundred years ?

It’s fun to speculate. This is true- be it for thoughts or gold. Both can be immensely satisfying. That being said, I have a source for this blog: Physicist Aryeh Kaplan in “The Book of Creation.” As a matter of fact, he was the youngest physicist ever employed by the United States government.

Image result for picture of the Sefer Yetzirah by Aryeh Kaplan
Kaplan uses cycles of seven to explain longevity. See page 189 in this book.

jubilee year Archives – DSO Works

Extreme Longevity

Kaplan explains cycles of seven in cosmic timing. For example, the 1st Temple stood for 410 years. During this period Israel observed seven jubilees. The extended jubilee period  lasts 49,000 years. Seven such periods lasts 343,000 years. These are divine years. A Divine Year lasts 365,250 earthly years. Based on these statistics we have:

  • The total time between the initial expansion and collapse of the Universe is 125,287,500,000 years. Kaplan states this figure is very close to scientific speculation. That corresponds to approximately 125 billion years.
  • Using this computation, eventually human life span will be expanded to the order of eighty million years!  Certainly, Ira Gershwin’s lyrics would have to be rewritten: No gal will give in to no man what’s eighty million years.

Christmas and the 7 x 7 Number Square – DSO Works

My contribution to the topic of sevens includes the 7 primary number squares. I believe at one time they structured a lost Golden Age of peace and plenty. Primary planetary number squares were  numbered from 3 x 3 to 9 x 9.

The first Christians were not insensitive to number seven. Add all the numbers (1-49)  in the 7 x 7 number square. They total 1225. It so happens that 12/25 is Christmas Day. Check out my internal link to read more. Please feel free to share.

This 7 x 7 square defines the Jubilee year. It was once ascribed to Venus. Any two opposite numbers total 50.
Music confers royalty as in Duke Ellington

Music Confers Royalty in the United States

Music Confers Royalty in the United States. What is the usual definition of royalty? Here is Wikipedia’s take:

  • Kingship
  • Royal family, the immediate family of a king or queen regnant, and sometimes his or her extended family
  • Royalty payment for use of software, such as music, or natural resources. Thus, even payment for musical composition confers royalty.

In the US one can acquire royalty. This is particularly true through music. Many, with royal additions to their names, have had humble beginnings. The list includes our featured Duke Ellington. We also find Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Manhattan Rhythm Kings, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince and Queen Latifa. Most of these “royal” musicians had humble beginnings.

Music confers royalty in the US
Both monetarily and by recognition, music confers royalty.

Music Confers Royalty in the United States

Dave made as much as $500,00.00 annually during the 1930’s playing his violin and conducting the orchestra for Paramount Theater in New York and Paramount Pictures in Hollywood.

Being a musician in the US can generate immense wealth. Royalty is then acquired by money. Those who have read some of my posts know I worked with Rubinoff and His Violin. I recently gave a concert in Circleville Ohio. It was sponsored by Maestro Joseph Rubin. He is also the curator of the Ted Lewis Big Band Museum. Rubinoff passed away in 1986. However, his legend is alive. Violinist Steven Greenman and I played the Fiddler on the Roof violin/piano arrangement I had made with Rubinoff.  This was over 30 years earlier.  Dave Rubinoff grew up in total poverty in the Ukraine.

Image may contain: one or more people
Dave’s wealth generated through music was legendary. Many were jealous.

Then, along came John Philip Sousa. He heard him play his graduation concert at the Warsaw Conservatory. As a result, Sousa brought Rubinoff with his entire family to America in 1911. The violin became the royal part of Dave Rubinoff’s title in 1929: “Rubinoff and His Violin”. It belonged to Czar Nicholas II of Russia. The violin was handed down through the royal Russian line to this last of  the czars. David purchased it at the Wurlitzer auction in New York. This was just before the Great Depression.  Then literally, with his royal violin, Rubinoff acquired the wealth of a king.  The violin had the official crest of the Russian Empire. It was set with diamonds and rubies. At the concert I  gave a half hour lecture on our association. Check the internal link below.
