Mukteswara Temple draws on the 3 x 3 number square

Mukteswara Temple of Northern India

Mukteswara Temple of Northern India openly draws on the 3 x 3 number square. Famous temples of the Bhubaneswar school include Lingaraj TempleMuktesvara TempleRajarani TempleAnanta Vasudeva Temple.[83]

The length of the temple foundation is 45 feet. An editor of books on antiquity, Mortimer Wheeler, gave the figure. This is another confirmation of the 3 x 3 number square in building holy sites. In this case the use is obvious. The numbers on the square house 1-9. Total these numbers. You have forty-five. The 3 x 3 number square offers the quality holiness all over the Earth. Most likely, we could find its use on other planets with advanced life forms.

The tradition of using the 3 x 3 number square for Holy sites is amply covered on

Judaism as well as many of the beliefs of sacred  antiquity spring from this 3 x 3 board. It becomes apparent when the boxes are filled with numbers one to nine arranged so that any row of three totals 15.


Three main triads and Temples in Israel use the same form


The times we live in are wonderful. We can see the beauty and simplicity of holy sites worldwide. I believe this calls for a re-dedication to ancient principles that encouraged and enhanced peace. We all deserve nothing less than that.

Lost Ancient Computer Code is Discovered

Lost Ancient Computer Code is Discovered. It has been hiding for millennium. It truly is like the Biblical grain of mustard seed. So what is the grain of mustard seed? Where is it hidden? Grain of Mustard Seed is the smallest of number squares. It is popular called the 3 x 3 square: Here is the traditional arrangement. Immediately below is a Biblical reference to this “Grain”.

binary code represents textcomputer processor instructions, or other data using any two-symbol system. Often the binary number systems  use 0 and 1. The binary code assigns a pattern of binary digits (bits) to each character, instruction, etc. A binary string of eight bits can represent any of 256 possible values.

In computing and telecommunications, binary codes are used for various methods of encoding data.  This includes character strings, into bit strings. Those methods may use fixed-width or variable-width strings. In a fixed-width binary code, each letter, digit, or other character is represented by a bit string of the same length. That bit string, interpreted as a binary number.  Itis usually displayed in code tables in octaldecimal or hexadecimal notation. There are many character sets and many character encodings for them.

Gottfried Leibniz    The modern binary number system, the basis for binary code, was invented by Gottfried Leibniz in 1679 and appears in his article Explication de l’Arithmétique Binaire. The full title is translated into English as the “Explanation of the Binary Arithmetic”.

Finding the Lost Ancient Computer Code

Many blogs on are about aspects of the code. For example, the square perimeter around the Great Pyramid is 1,110 megalithic yards. In binary numbers 10¹ + 10² + 10³ = 1,110. Notice, all factors are binary. Professor Alexander Thom of Oxford University discovered the ubiquitous use of the megalithic yard.

The codes including a lost ancient computer code that is hidden in the number square were shown to me by an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I did not read about them anywhere. The Lennie Lenape lived around Oquaga Lake. I worked many summers on by the lake for the Scott family. I was hired by them to be the house piano player. The Scott family owns Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. 

Look at the number square pictured above by triple numbers as follows:  Each set of 3 numbers with its opposite 3 always total 1,110. Examples: 492 + 618 = 1110 Another: 834 + 276 = 1110.  Any 3 numbers that uses number 5 as its central number is its own 1,110 number when added backwards to itself. Examples include 951 + 159 = 1110. Or, 357 + 753 = 1110. The square of three is code of peace

The Grain of Mustard Seed can move mountains. Acquiring peace is akin to moving a mountain. On the mountains around Oquaga Lake I learned about the code that accomplishes this feat.

Numerical reality and number squares

Numerical Reality Involves Number Square of Saturn

Numerical Reality involves number square of Saturn. At one time, numbers were thought to be the foundation of all. Numbers, however, were not random. Reality was set in number squares. This plan was global. Seven squares in particular were favoured. Each square represented the properties of a particular planet. They were:

  • Saturn with 3 x 3.
  • Jupiter was 4 x 4.
  • Mars was 5 x 5.
  • The Sun was 6 x 6.
  • Venus was 7 x 7.
  • Mercury was 8 x 8.
  • The Moon was 9 x 9.

The most complex was the simplest.The rings of Saturn are the most extensive planetary ring system of any planet in the Solar System. They consist of countless small particles, ranging from μm to m in size,[1] that orbit about Saturn.

The full set of rings, imaged as Saturn eclipsed the Sun from the vantage of the Cassini orbiter, 1.2 Million km distant, on 19 July 2013 (brightness is exaggerated). Earth appears as a dot at 4 o’clock, between the G and E rings.

Numerical Reality of Saturn’s 3 x 3 Number Square

Numerous layers rings are visible around Saturn. This parallels the properties of the number square the represents Saturn

Galileo first observed the rings in 161o.

Likewise, a number of mathematical rings surround the 3 x 3 number square.

  • Add the numbers around the central 5 (I term these numbers p1 which stands for perimeter one). 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 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 numbers three at the time. Overlap the third with the first number. I call this p-3. This stands for perimeter three.  492 + 276 + 618 +  834 = 2,220.

These numerical rings around the 3 x 3 number square were used to measure holy sites of ancient civilizations. The ways have been described in the blogs on DSOworks. The blogs are free and easy to access.

We are about to enter a new era of peace and plenty. It is also termed a  Golden Age. The codes contained in this planetary number square can help in this quest.

Proper piano practice without being precise is time tossed in the river.

Proper Piano Practice Means Precision

Proper Piano Practice Means Precision. I began my piano studies at age 11. The date was August 24, 1958. This was exactly two months before my October 24th birthday. I would turn twelve. At my first year piano recital, I played the entire Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven from memory. The teacher I studied it with was a Mrs. Foster. I forgot her 1st name. My apologies. In retrospect, I played it terribly. The reason for this shortcoming will became apparent. in the blog. My apologies. The way to Proper Piano Practice was later shown to me by my nest teacher, Mischa Kottler, but:

 I didn’t listen to his most basic advice. I thought I was quite advanced at age 15. He told me to (1) practice slowly and (2) hands separately. My adolescent mind told me, “that’s for babies.” Of course, I never told him that. But as it turned out, I was wrong. When slow practice and intense concentration unite, the results are outstanding. First, here is a taste of this great virtuoso-pianist, teacher.  Kottler would play it for an encore. Even when he was in his nineties he could finesse his special arrangement of Chopin’s “Minute Waltz.”


Minute Waltz (Mischa Kottler Version)

Kottler had the ability to see the future when it came to his piano students. I studied with him for years. When I was 25, he looked straight at me and said: “You’ll get good when you’re in your sixties.” He was serious.  Naturally, that comment did not sit well with a 25 year old. I’m well into my sixties, Finally, I have seen the “proper piano practice” light. Here’s the core of the method I now started to use. It’s never too late.

  • Play any two fingers on either hand.  With one finger play a white key. With another pick a black. Play the two notes at the same time.
  • Unless you intensely concentrate on what you just did, the notes are likely to be perhaps 1/10th of a second apart!
  • Now think of how difficult it is to play even more tones at the same time. Add to the formula, using the fingers on both hands.
  • Multiply this spread out sound by an entire piece of music. You have a mess.

How has Proper Piano Practice Helped Me?

In one word, employment. This December 20th, I’ll begin my 9th winter-spring season at the Gasparilla Inn. On Boca Grande it is favored place for VIP’s. Off-Florida season, there are also no shortage of jobs. Currently I play at the Crab and Fin Restaurant . It is on St, Armand’s Circle in Sarasota. Of course, a lot more goes into successful piano playing.  If you wish to know more elements, I’m also available for piano lessons in Sarasota.

Amen comes from a number square. Franklin loved them.

Amen Draws on the 5 x 5 Number Square

Amen Draws on the 5 x 5 Number Square. Number squares were sacred. A famous American shared my love of “magic squares”: Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was a Mason. There is a tie in with the Great Pyramid.  I’ve blogged about how number squares laid out blueprints for many ancient sites. For example, an 8 x 8 square grid can be superimposed on the Great Pyramid. Then the  “Great Cubit” of 55 smaller cubits takes on the 8 x 8 dimensions. Franklin says in his autobiography:

“I then confessed to him that in my younger days, having once
some leisure which I still think I might have employed more
usefully, I had amused myself in making these kind of magic

Franklin then described an 8×8 magic square he had devised in his
youth, and the special properties it possessed. Here is the square:

52 61 4 13 20 29 36 45
14 3 62 51 46 35 30 19
53 60 5 12 21 28 37 44
11 6 59 54 43 38 27 22
55 58 7 10 23 26 39 42
9 8 57 56 41 40 25 24
50 63 2 15 18 31 34 47
16 1 64 49 48 33 32 17

As explained by Franklin, each row and column of the square have the
common sum 260. Also, he noted that half of each row or column sums
to half of 260. In addition, each of the “bent rows” (as Franklin
called them) have the sum 260. The “bent rows” are patterns of 8
numbers with any of the shapes and orientations shown below…

What is the meaning of “amen?”The word amen (/ˌɑːˈmɛn/ or /ˌˈmɛn/HebrewאָמֵןModern amenTiberian ʾāmēnGreek: ἀμήν; Arabicآمين‎‎, ʾāmīn ; “So be it; truly”) is a declaration of affirmation[1][2] found in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. It is found in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim worship as a concluding word or response to prayers.[2] Common English translations of the word amen include “verily” and “truly”. It can also be used colloquially to express strong agreement.2]  For instance, amen to that.[3]Our touch with antiquity is largely lost. This word can be properly viewed in light of the 5 x 5 number square.


How does this number square abound with the essence of God and the word of  benediction, Amen? In Hebrew, letters doubled as numbers. The four letter name of God is called the tetragrammaton  (Hebrew: יהוה‎). Its value by the rules of gematria is 26. Any opposite numbers on the 5 x 5 square total 26. Adonay is another name that draws on this ancient number square (Original Word: אֲדֹנָי). Any row of five totals 65. 

Planetary association of the 5 x 5 number square in antiquity was Mars. The picture is from the National Geographic Magazine.

Amen (Original Word: אָמֵן) is hidden at the core of the 5 x 5 number square. By rules of gematria, “amen” totals 91.  Gematria is the inseparable connectin that words and numbers had in certain ancient languages. I know. Obviously, 91 is not 13. However, double and sometimes even triple coding was used. Here is the featured word’s double code: Add all numbers from 1 to 13. As in: 1+2+3 +4+5+6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11+ 12 + 13 = 91. By this successive addition, we see the numerical basis in a number square for our featured word.   


Musical sequences

Musical Sequences are Both Universal and Basic

Musical Sequences are Both Universal and Basic. In music, a sequence is the restatement of a motif or longer melodic (or harmonic) passage at a higher or lower pitch in the same voice.[1] It is one of the most common and simple methods of elaborating a melody in eighteenth and nineteenth century classical music[1](Classical period and Romantic music).  Examples of characteristics of sequences:[1]  

Look at the music of the featured picture: The sequence is well known in America, Canada and England. In the U.S. the music is an excerpt from “My Country Tis’ of Thee.” In England it is “God Save the Queen (King)”. Bars 3 and 4 form a sequence with bars 1 and 2. They use the same pattern, only one tone lower. Just as a refresher, here is the British and American music on youtube. The British words are “Send him victories, Happy and glorious.” In America the corresponding words are “Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgram’s pride.”

Examples of how Musical Sequences are Universal and Basic

God save the King – The national anthem of the British … – YouTube

My Country, ‘Tis of Thee (with lyrics) – YouTube

Musical Sequences Applies to the Sciences

Let’s look at basic scientific sequences. They work on the same principle as music. In Platonic style, here’s two basic groupings of numbers: 3-4-5 and 6-7-8. We have a true pattern for musical sequence operating in math and the sciences.

  • 3-4-5 has geometrical import.  One is the single line that begins the process. The classic example is the 3-4-5 Pythagorean  right triangle. The formula is 3² + 4² = 5². Of course, with the 5 Platonic solids,  three use triangles (3 sides).These include the tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron.  The cube uses squares (4 sides). The dodecahedron uses pentagons (5 sides). Pictures are below.
Image result for picture of the 5 platonic solids on DSOworks
Platonic solids have regular polygons of either 3 4 or 5 sides.
  • 6-7-8 has implications for organic chemistry. Hydrogen begins the count. It is like the single line that begins form in geometry.  Hydrogen’s atomic number is one. Six is carbon’s. Seven is nitrogen’s. Eight is oxygen’s.
An example of an organic compound. Carbon + 6. Hydrogen = 1. Oxygen = 8.

Conclusions: This blog puts forth mathematical Platonism.   Here mathematical entities are abstract They have no spatial, temporal or causal properties.  They are eternal and unchanging.  Numbers represent eternal truths. They are behind everything. Musical sequences, by sound,  express their beaty through sound.





Secret ancient codes found their way through Moses into Judaism.

Secret Ancient Codes Known in Egypt

Secret Ancient Codes Known in Egypt. The secrets involved number squares. A favored was the “three by three magic square.” Why was it called magic? Because hidden codes can appear from seemingly nowhere. You just have to look past the bars. Most people are stopped by the lines. They think that nine has its own little box. Or, that seven is likewise an isolated number etc. People who believe this cannot see the truth. To the uninitiated, this is to what God says to Isaiah in 42:16. Making “crooked things straight”, means getting rid of the bars. In this manner, secret ancient codes are revealed.

  • And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not. I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things I will do unto them, and not forsake them. This is God’s promise to Isaiah for redemption.

Magic  squares, in this sense, can be likened to stage or street magic. Priests, prophets, engineers and builders used the magic square in a practical manner. The 3 x 3 number square is not  paranormal or ritual magic.  This square, however, can entertain and engage. Just like the entertainer in this picture. In this sense, real technical magic is one of the oldest performing arts in the world.  Use of magic squares are documented in Neolithic times. I believe they were used before the Great Deluge in Noah’s time. I have blogged about their use in Lepenski Vir, Jericho, and Troy. Check out posts on These ancient sites were measured by characteristic numbers of number squares.

Audiences are entertained by staged tricks or illusions.  These are only seemingly  impossible or supernatural feats using natural means.[1][2]  

A stage magician using a top hat as a prop.

However, religious priests of various cultures took the magic square’s properties to heart. Here are a couple of examples of how it was used.

  • Egypt, the Great Pyramid of Gizeh. Get rid of the bars. Add the numbers three at the time as follows: 492 + 618; or 438 + 672. In both cases, the total is 1110. The perimeter around the Great Pyramid is 1110 megalithic yards.
  • Here’s how the Greek priests of ancient Athens used the magic square: Make 1110 the circumference of a circle. Its diameter becomes 353.
Three hundred fifty thid blog is about Mercury Hermes

I copied  part of my 353rd blog for this post: Three hundred fifty third blog and Hermes. This is a special blog. In antiquity a letter and numbers shared a symbol. This was true in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. In most modern languages, a letter has one type of symbol. The number has another. This ancient approach to communication was called by a Greek name- gematria. Three hundred fifty third blog, therefore is about Mercury-Hermes. The spelling by Greek letters of Hermes equated with 353.  Hermes (/ˈhɜːrmz/GreekἙρμῆς) is an Olympian god in Greek religion and mythology, the son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, and the second youngest of the Olympian gods (Dionysus being the youngest). Hermes was the emissary and messenger of the gods. The Romans called Hermes by the name, Mercury.

In other words, Hermes is found in the concealed span or diameter of a hidden code in the simplest of number squares. That is his domain.

keyboard touches great vary

Keyboard Touches Vary Greatly Depending on Instrument

Keyboard Touches Vary Greatly Depending on Instrument. My piano instructor was Mischa Kottler. I was offered a position playing the organ. Kottler told me not to accept it. He said, playing organ would ruin my piano technique. Of course, I wondered how and why? I think the answer comes from Karl Philipp Emanuel Bach. In the quote below, C.P. E. had the harpsichord in mind. The piano wasn’t yet invented. But what he said about the contrast applies to the piano.  In the interest of keeping posts short, there will be more blogs. A harpsichord is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard.  The player presses a row of levers. This triggers a mechanism.  One or more strings are then plucked with a quill.

 The above harpsichord is the work of two celebrated makers: originally constructed by Andreas Ruckers in Antwerp (1646). It was remodeled by Pascal Taskin in Paris (1780). The prototype of the pianoforte was invented in 1710. Bartolomeo Cristofori di Francesco (Italian pronunciation: [bartoloˈmɛːo kriˈstɔːfori di franˈtʃesko]; May 4, 1655 – January 27, 1731). He was an Italian maker of musical instruments.

 The 1720 Cristofori piano in the Metropolitan Museum in New York is the picture on the right. The total number of pianos built by Cristofori is unknown. Only three survive today, all dating from the 1720s.

Keyboard Touches and Keyboard Styles

 Here is a primary difference between the organ and the harpsichord/piano. According to C.P. E. Bach: “The organ is indispensable in church. It bestows splendor and maintains order. However, for sacred recitatives, and arias… one must resort to the harpsichord. It gives the singing voice freedom of variation. Too often, one discovers how bare a performance can be without harpsichord accompaniment. Moreover, this instrument is indispensable in the theater and at concerts.”

Other differences will be for future posts.

Tones plus overtones both come from a number square

Tones Plus Overtones Prove Former Advanced Civilization

Tones Plus Overtones Prove Former Advanced Civilization. This civilization knew the ways  peace. It was a time when “yin” ruled. This is according to Chinese tradition. Also according to Chinese tradition is Feng shui.  Both peace and Feng  shui are based on the 3 x 3 number square. So are two key points of this blog, (1) the primary overtones ratios.  (2) Their vibrations per second  in antiquity.

An overtone is any frequency greater than the fundamental frequency of a sound. Here is the illustration: Play a low “C” on the piano. It is tone “1” in the illustration.  Call this low “C” the fundamental. When played, this tone sets off a series of tones. The strongest are the first five above the fundamental. They also make for the most pleasing ratios in sound. For example 1:2 is the octave.  2 :3 is the fifth. 3:4 is the fourth.

Above is the harmonic series in musical notation.  We see the names of the intervals above the fundamental. . The relative amplitudes (strengths) of the various harmonics primarily determine the timbre of different instruments and sounds.  For example, the clarinet and saxophone have similar mouthpieces and reeds.  Both produce sound through resonance of air inside a chamber.  Each mouthpiece end is considered closed. The clarinet’s resonator is cylindrical. This means even-numbered harmonics are less present. The saxophone’s resonator is conical.  That allows the even-numbered harmonics to sound more strongly.


Tones plus overtones of the ancient scale are found here
The simplest of number squares will spearhead a New Golden Age as it did in the past.

Here’s how tones plus overtones work together. Our Neolithic ancestors of this: All “magic square” have characteristic numbers. But this one also has secret number codes. Here are its characteristic numbers:

  • Any two opposite numbers = 10. Examples 4 + 6 or 3 + 7.
  • The single central number is 5.
  • Any straight row of 3 numbers totals 15.
  • The perimeter of 8 numbers totals 40.
  • The perimeter + the center = 45.

Next, here’s how the characteristic numbers relate to fundamental overtones. These are constructed with numbers one thru four. This are expressed by ratios of two consecutive numbers.

  • 1 to 2 is a perfect octave. On the above number square, the ratio of the central 5 to opposite combination on the perimeter of 10 is is 1:2.
  • 3 to 2 is a perfect fifth. On the above square, the ratio of any row of 3 (15) to any 2 opposite numbers (10) is  3:2.
  • 4 to 3 is a perfect fourth. The ratio of the 4 even corner numbers (20) to any row of three (15) is the 4:3 ratio.

Harmonic overtones of fundamental perfect harmonics are defined by these characteristic numbers. They are the octave, fifth and fourth. There are no other Perfect Intervals.

Tones and overtones and number squares.
Knowledge, for me came, from a spiritual presence Oquaga Lake. See products on

So Where are the Actual Tones in Terms of V/S on the Number Square?

Go around the perimeter in either direction. Add two numbers at the time as follows.

  • 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. Diatonic “A” vibrates 440 times per second.
  • 49 +94 + 35 +53 + 18 + 81 + 92 + 29 + 57 + 75 + 16 + 61 = 660 Diatonic “E” vibrates 660 times per second.
  • 660 to 440 define the 3/2 ratio. These define a section of tones plus overtones.

Other tones of the ancient scale are to found in this number square.  So, the number square holds musical tones.  It has overtones. The number block has interval ratios and their tones. The square of three allows us passage to a lost Golden Age.




Musical orphanage outlet was his professional anchor.

Musical Orphanage Outlet in Venice for Vivaldi

Musical Orphanage Outlet in Venice for Vivaldi. Antonio Lucio Vivaldi ( 4 March 1678 – 28 July 1741) was an Italian[2] Baroque composer, virtuoso violinist, teacher and cleric. Four orphanages for girls existed in Venice, Italy. They taught females the art of music. Antonio Vivaldi worked at the Ospedale (orphanage) della Pieta. He was employed there for  more than 30 years. He duties included composer, violin maestro, and orchestral conductor.

When musical styles later changed during his employment, he lost his job. He went to Vienna, impoverished. After he died, no one even knew where he was buried until 1938.   My main source of reference is Landowska On Music. Wanda Landowska quotes Italian President, De Brosses.  The points made come in part from his:  Lettres familieres ecrites d’Italie (1739 – 1740). De Brosses lived during Vivaldi’s time. He gives a glimpse into the musical life of Italy.

Musical Orphanage Outlet
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Made its Premier With an All Female Chamber Orchestra at the Orphanage della Pieta. They were virtuosos. Not too many ladies here!

Musical Orphanage Outlet Description

  1.  Why were there four female orphanages needed in Venice? Girls were left in orphanages for three reasons (1) They were illegitimate. (2) They were orphaned. (3) They were placed there by parents who could not afford to keep them. Poor families often orphaned their girls. Hence the key words of this blog:
  2. How were they brought up? The State paid their expenses. They were trained exclusively to excel at music. De Brosses stated: “They sing like angels and play the violin, the cello. the bassoon; in short, there was no big instrument that could terrify them.” Hence the key words of this blog: Musical Orphanage Outlet
  3. De Brosses  stated about Vivaldi: “I heard him claim that he could compose a concerto faster than a copyist could write them down.”

Alas, Vivaldi’s music went out of fashion. His death was not even noticed. In 1938 it was learned that he died in 1741 and was buried in Vienna. That’s some 200 years in passing.  Vivaldi would be rich on royalties if he were alive today:

  • Walter Kolneder in Antonio Vivaldi: His Life and Work states: A unofficial survey of diners in Greenwich Ct. in the 1990’s claims: Today Vivaldi’s popularity has taken on such dimensions that it almost threatens that of other music.”
  • P.G. Goulding states in Classical Music: The 50 Greatest Composers and Their 1000 Greatest Works: “The 4 violin concertos that make up the Four Seasons are  most popular on many classical radio stations.”

What conclusions might we draw from this blog?  To make a living, one must know what is on the horizon and be able to respond, appropriately.  Genius does not guarantee a living. Also, everyone has their day in the Sun. That means it is necessary to put aside resources for a rainy day. As a musician, I greatly sympathize with the plight and challenges of all serious musicians- men and women. Even a genius like Vivaldi greatly suffered.
