Sacred Engineers Philosophy- what I learned of antiquity on this lake

Sacred Engineers Philosophy was written on Oquaga Lake

Sacred Engineers Philosophy was written Oquaga Lake. It is located in New York’s Catskill Mountains.  Many people authored books with the background of mountains in New York. Washington Irving was among them. He wrote The Legend of Sleepy HollowWashington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. Irving is best known for his short stories “Rip Van Winkle” (1819). He also wrote “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” (1820).  Both of  appear in his collection, The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.

“Sleepy Hollow,” by Will Moses, on view at Sunnyside, Washington Irving’s former home.

The Catskill Mountains of New York  inspired me. They also gave me almost two decades of paychecks. This was as a piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. New York’s mountains talk to everyone who will listen. A wood carved sign at the hotel initiated my journey.  The sign was positioned over the lobby entrance at Scott’s Hotel. It read: Love is Spoken Here. My journey has so far lasted about 25 years. Several books including, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, were written by me at this location. It is available thru DSOworks. At any rate, here’s the story:

Sacred Engineers Philosophy Introduction

My life was sent in an unexpected direction in the summer of 1994. The location was in New York’s Catskill Mountains. The resort was Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. I was “the house piano player.” Isn’t this slightly reminiscent of Scott Joplin’s type employment? But, it is not that kind of house. Rather, I accompanied various shows that came to the resort. Also, my wife and I did our own show. Lots of Broadway, of course.

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit – DSO Works

I experienced sudden enlightenment at the resort. It happened in a flash.  In the spirit of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow a voice told me: “Look at the 3 x 3 number square more closely.” Suddenly, the dividing bars disappeared. I began reading the numbers in polarities. The polarities  were also in groupings of two and three opposing numbers. For example 49 + 61 = 110. Or 492 + 618 = 1110.   I then found the numbers behind the measurements of countless ancient structures. Most prominent was the Great Pyramid. See if you can find the number 440 in this manner. Each side of the of Great Pyramid is 440 cubits. I wrote the Sacred Engineers Philosophy as a result. Some countries still tune their musical  instruments  to A 440. If you can’t find it, look up posts on the Great Pyramid on You can find the answer.

This was known as the number square of engineers.





Buddhist Bodhisvatta Stages Parallel Tree of Life

Buddhist Bodhisvatta Stages Parallel Tree of Life. Pilgrims often scale the heights.  With the featured picture they are the Adirondack Mountain Club hikers atop Mt. VanHoevenberg.  I was just in the Adirondack Mountains. Schroon Lake Park is in the Adirondacks on a lake. The setting inspired me to write a poem about an abandoned amphitheater. I quote my internal link.

Amphitheatre in the Woods at Schroon Lake Park – DSO Works

Amphitheatre in the Woods
by David Ohrenstein

Amphitheatre in the woods
Remnants of long ago.
Concrete seats set by layers
All facing a roofed, staged show.

Buddhist Bodhisvatta it isn't, but these actors have an august mission anyway.
These actors have a calling for Shakespeare!

Now covered by pine cones and needles,
Encased by sand and dust.
Set in Schroon Lake Park:
A memento to the past, I trust.

The fun of another era
Is still tangible in the air:
Dancing the night away.
Amnesia to worry or care.

At times it imbibed the big band beat
With music under starry sky.
Cool breezes carried the tunes,
Accompanied by a buzzing fly.

A puzzle is soon put together
Of a past day and age.
The pieces form a picture
Of the ballroom dancing craze.

Will its glory ever return?
Can the cobwebs be cleared away?
Will quality entertainment now past
Return for another stay?

 Buddhist Bodhisvatta offers another type of journey

Another type of journey is seeking  truth. That also comes in stages.  Like hiking, markers are often set along the path. Significant in this regard are  the ten stages of the Buddhist Bodhisvatta.  They parallel the 10 stages depicted by emanations on the Hebraic Tree of Life. This will also be the subject for future blogs. I quote my book of poetry. The poem is called Get Thee a Walking Stick.  The book is entitled, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. Oquaga Lake is in the Catskill Mountains.  I worked there many summers as a piano player. In this quote the spirit offers a suggestion on how to find happiness:

“If it’s life you wish to live and enjoy it to the marrow,
Then get thee a walking stick and hear the morning sparrow.” 


bodhisattva according to Buddhism is a Buddhist who has attained enlightenment. Also, in selfless act, this person delays his or her entry to Nirvana (non-existence). This is for the sake of others. Note that the Tree of Life also has 10 emanations. A great unity is shared by nations around the world. When this is emphasized, the result is peace and plenty.

Oquaga Spirit Speaks

$7.99       Oquaga Lake is located up the mountain from Deposit, NY in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains just across the border to Pennsylvania. This spring-fed lake is rated one of the cleanest in New York State. At points it’s  over 150 feet deep.  The lake’s diameter is about a mile across. Overall, its outline resembles a bear.


Synergetic discovery

Synergetic Discovery Between a Pyramid and an Octagon

Synergetic Discovery Between a Pyramid and an Octagon. The featured picture uses octagons. Their synergy parallels the synergetic behavior of the hexagon and tetrahedron.  First, to define the terms: Synergy, Pyramid and Octagon. For my reference I quote Buckminster Fuller. His book is Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking.

Synergetic discovery
The behavior of the octagon and square base pyramid parallels that of the hexagon and tetrahedron.
  1. Synergy: 101.01 is the “Behavior of whole systems unpredicted by their parts taken separately. “
  2. Syneretics 108.00- Four Triangles out of Two. Synergy acts on the transformation of the hexagon into a 6-sided tetrahedron. In nature the six sided hexagon (two open ended triangles) synergetically transform into the six-edged tetrahedron.
  3. Parallel between the square based pyramid and the octagon. A square based pyramid (like the Great Pyramid) has 8 edges. The octagon has 8 edges. The pyramid holds a total of 1080°.  The square base has 360 °. Its 4 triangles total 4  x 180° = 720° . The octagon, be it regular or irregular, also has 8 vertices with a total of 1080°.
  4.  Here’s the parallel between my synergetic discovery in #3 with Fuller’s in #2.


Image result for wikipedia picture of a tetrahedron
The six edges of a hexagon become the six edges of a tetrahedron.

As the six edges of 2 open ended triangles become a tetrahedron; Two open-ended squares can become a squared based pyramid. What practical application can this have? Many books have been written about the beneficial effects of the pyramid. These include: Mother Ship Pyramid: Health & Personal Care

Pyramid Shape Power as a New Halal-compliant Food Preservation …

The Secret Power of Pyramids (9780449132739): Bill Schul: Books

Synergetic Discovery

What ever beneficial effects the 3 dimensional pyramid may have, the two dimensional octagon should also  have the same effects.  As two open ended triangles can converge to form a tetrahedron, two open ended squares can converge to form a pyramid. I have a number of blogs about Buckminster Fuller. Below are a couple of internal links. Geometry can be applied to benefit our daily lives.  I think the octagon pyramid parallel is original with myself- Though I am not positive. Feel free to share.

Pairing contrasting numbers of the lily and the rose

Pairing Contrasting Numbers -Five with Six.

Pairing Contrasting Numbers -Five with Six.  I’ve blogged about fives and sixes. One of my internal links is given below. The theme was five is yin.  Six represents yang. In ancient measurement they were used  together.  Many ancient, universal measurements can be recreated with these numbers. The 5 petaled  rose was always thought of as yin. The six petaled lily was the yang counterpart. If you learn how to read numbers, surprising conclusions can be reached. One, for example, is  the existence of a pre-Genesis citadel in Mexico. It is connected to the ancient word, “emesh“. That words implies existence before Genesis (see below), Roses and lilies have strong symbolism. They partake of pairing contrasting numbers. John Michell offers a great introduction to 5’s and 6’s his book, City of Revelation. Since his publication, I’ve discovered how other measures of antiquity use five and six. A list is offered below.

Image result for picture of author John Michell

  • Five represents the strong petals of the rose. It has 13 weaker petals.
  • Six represents the petals of a lily.

Pairing Contrasting Numbers of Five and Six in Prehistoric Times

  • Five has historically been the number of humanity. It is the core number of the ratio called “phi”. [1] It favors ratios of life including those found throughout the human frame.
  • Six was associated with inanimate nature, like the snowflake:
Image result for picture of Wikicommons of a hexagon snowflake
Snowflakes partake of the hexagon.
  • Five was thought of as the footprint of the pentagon.
  • Six was the symbol of the hexagon
  • Thus. five was considered yin. Six was thought of as yang.
    1. 6/5 = 1.2  This approximates Egyptian remen which is 1.2165… feet .
    2. 6 x 5/6 + 5 = 2.727272…A megalithic yard is 2.72 feet.
    3. 6 x 6 x 6/5 x 5 x 5 = 1.728. The larger Egyptian cubit is 1.728 feet.
    4. 6²/5² – 1.44. One hundred and forty four is a Fibonacci number.
    5. 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 / 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 2.0736. Approximates the Palestinian cubit of 2.107 feet.
    6.  (6 to the 6th power)  / (5 to the sixth power) = 2.979…This is close to the three feet of the English yard.
    7. Very important for Central America and the Mexican Pyramid of the Sun: The key unit of measure was the “hunab.” (See Peter Tompkins Mysteries of the Mexican Pyramids). The hunab is 3.41 feet. Again, the invaluable fives and sixes: (5 x 5 x 5) + (6 x 6 x 6) = 341. I took this information from my previous blog called “Measure Proves a Pre-Genesis Citadel in Mexico.”
    8.  341 refers to world before Genesis. Here’s how: The name of the pre-creation God was Emesh  אֶ֣מֶשׁ: “Laban said unto Jacob: The God of your fathers, Emesh, said to me…” In Hebrew “Emesh” literally means “yesternight.” Reference Genesis (31:29). Letters doubled as numbers in middle eastern languages. There were no separate numbers apart from letters. Below  are the letters in Hebrew with their representative numbers of emesh.

אֶ֣מֶשׁ – Alef = 1; Mem = 40; shin = 300. Total is 341.  אֶ֣מֶשׁ- Also, the three Hebrew letters of  Emesh  are the the “mother” of all the Hebrew letters.

Silbury Hill

Silbury Hill In England Tells Quite a Story by Measurement

Silbury Hill In England Tells Quite a Story by Measurement. How can you tell a story by measurement? At one time letters doubled as numbers. One symbol could represent both. This was called gematria– a Greek word. Numbers then can be understood as words, or even concepts.  Several monuments were built around  Avebury  in Wiltshire.  Silbury Hill was built as a  landmark Neolithic monument.

Image result for map of Silbury Hill
This famous hill is certainly a wonder of the ancient worlld

The hill has a unique latitude location: Divide the northern hemisphere into seven equal segments:

  • Karnak is found on the 2nd division.
  • Delphi on the third.
  • Silbury hill is on the 4th.
  • Its exterior angle, in turn, has the same latitude as the Gizeh plain. That is the location of the Great Pyramid

The  hill was developed in stages, over hundreds of years.  My primary source was Stonehenge and its Mysteries by Michael Balfour, Charles Scribner, NY, 1980. Much is also available on line:

Image result for picture of book Stonehenge and its Mysteries by Michael Balfour
This book also discusses Silbury Hill.
  • . Currently it forms a perfect circle. The diameter is 550 feet.
  • It was also originally a circle.  This was the 1st phase. The diameter was 120 feet. Circumference was 377 feet.

How Can these Silbury Hill Numbers Be Read?

The Master Code for Ancient Civilizations is Here

Our little “grain of mustard seed” has countless hidden codes. It has the potential to revive a Golden Age of Peace and Plenty. The hidden codes frame the Fibonacci series by sequences of fives. This smallest of number squares (3 x3) gives birth to the series. Next, here’s how 377 is a Fibonacci number. The series begins: 1,1,2,3,5 (the first number out of consecutive number sequence), 8,13, 21, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610… Please note the Beethoven internal link. Beethoven uses the 377 as a sectional group of measures. The original circumference of Silbury was 377  feet.  With Beethoven, it is found in his Fifth Symphony. He deliberately made the opening 5 measures long. Usually musical thought comes in multiples of 4 bars.

Note the usual 4 bars, almost always used by composers of music,  becomes 5 bars in the hands of the Great Master, Ludwig van Beethoven!

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

Also be sure to read the above 2nd internal link. You’ll discover how repeated fives take hold of this number square by opposite pairs of numbers.

Back to Silbury and its original diameter: You can find 15 in  8 distinct straight line totals:  3 are vertical. 3 are horizontal, 2 are diagonal. 3 + 3 + 2 = 8. Next, the product of these eight:  8 x 15 = 120. The diameter of the 1st phase of the Silbury Hill was 120 feet.

The Next Phase of Silbury Hill also Draws on the 3 x 3 Number Square

Land ahoy! The expert a claims southern Britain was a series of islands linked by waterways, channels and swollen rivers, and that Stonehenge was effectively located on the coast. The mound (pictured) would have acted as a lighthouse and harbour for those travelling by boat

Finally,  the 2nd phase has a diameter of 550 feet. Like, I stated, repeated fives are part of a hidden code. The code is amply described in many of the 510 posts currently on That makes a circumference of 1728 feet. Note in the picture below how 1728 was traditionally used on the number square. This square has been historically divided into a 4 number corner: The left over 5 numbers was called its gnomon. Below is strong connection between the Great Pyramid and Silbury Hill. The circle around the truncated Great Pyramid and its mirrored underground image is 550 cubits. The circle around this diameter is 1728 cubits. The numbers employed by the Great Pyramid and Silbury Hill are the same. An illustration of the gnomon and corners used by both structures is given below. Incidentally, the corner numbers multiplied approximates the Palestianian cubit of 2.107 feet. 5 x 7 x 6 x 1 = 210. The larger Egyptian cubit is 1.728 feet. Again, this measure comes from the 5 numbered gnomon. Silbury Hill and the Great Pyramid were both built developed primarily to illustrate the various ways the 3 x 3 number square can be used.

Mirrored pyramid is implied by the Great Pyramid of Egypt.




Interrelationships of math and gepmetry appear at the Great Pyramid

Interrelationships of the Past Crossed Disciplines

One source is the stamping mill that makes our Universe: That is the traditional 3 x 3 number square pictured below.

Interrelationships of the Past Crossed Disciplines. Numbers were an ancient reasoning tool.  Ancient philosophers and priests used common numbers to emphasize similarities. This blog simply illustrates one example: How Great Pyramid and the Platonic solids use the same numbers. I’ll walk my reader through the meaning of two diagrams.

Platonic solid transformation is by numbers.#1 = tetrahedron. #2 = cube. #3 = octahedron. #4 = dodecaedron. # 5 = icosahedron.

First: The dimensions of the Great Pyramid. Its essential dimensions are: Square base is 8 x 8 great cubits. The four triangulated faces peak together at 5 great cubits: Note-

  • The base is square. It measures 440 shorter  Egyptian cubits of 1.71818..  feet on each side.
  • One Great Cubit is 55 of such smaller cubits.
  • The Great Pyramid measures 440 cubits or 8 such great cubits on each side.
  • The truncated height is 275 of these smaller cubits.
  • By great cubits this becomes 5.

Next we turn our attention to the 5 solids. First, 5 is the key number for both: The Great Pyramid has 5 faces. There are 5 Platonic solids.What is the source of  five? It is not an arbitrary number. Look at the 3 x 3 number square. Five is at its core. Very important: Interrelationships are deeper than they appear on this number square. Through opposite polarities they go to infinity! One example is in the next paragraph.

Interrelationships here is the ancient source.
This code demonstrates the inner workings of the Great Pyramid and the Platonic Solids.

I mentioned each side of the Pyramid is 440 cubits. Where is 440 n this number square?  For this I must credit an Indian spirit I believe to be from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I spent many summers on Oquaga Lake.

Image result for picture of Oquaga lake
Oquaga Lake is where I worked as a professional pianist. I played many shows in the large, white building at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. It is full of fun, wonderful memories and stories.

Interrelationships Galore

Take the numbers around the perimeter. Add them two at the time as follows: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. It is the same forwards or backwards. Each side of the square-based Great Pyramid is 440 cubits. It’s the numbers that are important: Ancients of varied civilizations attached their own units of measure to these key numbers. What was the primary reason the Great Pyramid was built?

  1. To illustrate every way the 3 x 3 square can function.
  2. With this knowledge, a new Golden Age of Peace and Plenty can be implemented 

Next, look at the illustrations of the Platonic solids. Vertical column one (on the left) totals the features each solid.  Each of the five has its own horizontal column. This shows the added horizontal values. Here is the total number of faces, corners and edges for each solid. In other words, the topology.

  • The tetrahedron has 14.
  • The cube has 26.
  • The octahedron has 26.
  • The icosahedron has 62.
  • The dodecahedron has 62.

This information can be found in standard textbooks on geometry. Next the chart reduces these topology numbers as follows:

  • Fourteen: 1 +4 = 5. This is for the tetrahedron.
  • Twenty-six: 2 + 6 = 8. This applies to the cube and octahedron.
  • The third different number is sixty-two.  6 + 2 = 8. This applies to the dodecahedron and icosahedron.

We thus see four eights and one five. That duplicates the four-square base of 8 Great Cubits on each side and the pyramid’s height of 5 Great Cubits.

Clues dead end when looking for sources. of antiquity

Clues Dead End as in the movie-National Treasure

Clues Dead End As in the Movie-National Treasure. For 15 years I thought the prototype of the cosmos was the 5 Platonic solids. They provided so many answers. Then, after following a path, it dead ended.  An example was my excitement over discovery of ancient cycles of time. Ancients used astrological ages.  An age is a time period in which astrologers claim a primary line of thought runs with people. This realtes relating to culture, society, and politics. There are twelve astrological ages corresponding to the twelve zodiacal signs in western astrology.

  • 2,160 years equals one astrological age.
  • Another, how there are 1440 minutes in a 24 hour time frame.
  • Another, is the Babylonian’s measure of time called a shar. It equaled 3600 years. The Sumerians defined a “load” by this figure.

Space came 1st - then time

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[1]  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.[2]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.

Space came first then time in the ancient number square point of view
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.

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



Joyful -When Radiated By Anyone- Elevates Stature

Joyful -When Radiated By Anyone- Elevates Stature. This is to the highest levels. This blog will attempt to answer how and why. It ties into an ancient Middle Eastern concept called gematria. It refers to the sharing of a letter and number by the same symbol. Once there was no separate notation for letters and numbers. That is foreign to our current day thinking. In the Middle East it was common. Hebrew still illustrates  this in the calendar:

Image result for a calendar with Hebrew letters
Wednesday is aleph (1). Thursday is beis (2)…This demonstrates the equivalency between numbers and letters.

Some words had the same numerical value. This is true with the two key Hebrew words: joy and Redeemer.  Also, within a phrase, one (1) could be added without changing the essential numerical meaning. This was called the colel.  This blog makes the point:  Any happy person helps all mankind. This is true regardless of religion or nationality.

The two Hebrew words, joy and Messiah, both have a value of 353.  The words are given below.

Strong’s Hebrew: 8057. שִׂמְחָה (simchah) — joy, gladness, mirth

Original Word: מָשִׁ֫יחַ. This translates to the Redeemer, Messiah.

A Joyful Gematria

In addition to this 353 co-incidence, we’ll examine two more correspondences:  In Greek gematria it specified Hermes. Key numbers were once shared by even different cultures.   Read my 353rd blog. The link is given below.

Now for  the ancient source of 353:  It is hidden in a well known number code. Read the internal link below called   3 x 3 number square Archives.The code hides 1110:  When 1110 becomes a circumference, then 353…  becomes its diameter.  At one time number squares structured civilization. They formulated a peaceful era.

Joyful best describes life on the lake.
Oquaga Lake is where I learned about number codes of the ancients. I credit an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape.

Finally, 352 is the gematria of the two words that immediately precede Judaism’s most important prayer- Hear O Israel.  Milk and honey are the last two words of Deut: 6:3. Hear O Israel are the first words of Deut. 6:4. These words in Deut. 6:3 are translated into as “milk and honey.” Read another internal link below. What does this mean? When the lost codes hidden in the 3 x 3 number square are activated, the lands will flow will “milk and honey.”

Inspiration versus uncontrolled imagination

Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients

Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients. Lost civilizations assigned numbers to concepts.  Inspiration and Imagination were once defined by number 1080. Author John Michell has written voluminously on this subject. His take expresses Einstein’s thoughts.  However, his take is in terms of an Earth Spirit that encircles world.

This book placed me on a lifetime journey.
The View Over Atlantis originally placed me on a journey to being inspired.

Einstein’s Take on the Subject

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited. Whereas, imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein As quoted in “What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck“. The Saturday Evening Post (26 October 1929) q:Albert_Einstein


Inspiration Comes From Imagination
When is something inspired and when is it just wild imagination? Einstein knew the difference.

For many it can be extremely difficult to distinguish between between the state of being inspired and uncontrolled imagination.  I will relate it to an article in the New York Times. It is front page in the Arts & Leisure section. Date is Sunday June 10, 2018. Suffice it to say, aspiring can draw from imagination.

Inspiration Can Have Controlled and Uncontrolled Aspects

The New York Times article is entitled “Home is Where the Horror Is.” It talks about how in cinema today stating: Horror has never been more bankable and celebrated than it is now. Michell, in his City of Revelation, discusses the difference between being inspired and wild imagination. Basically, the number 1080 applies to both. Michell has an entire chapter on this number. He writes about how: “The mystic’s vision and the the lunatics nightmare derive from the same source.” Most important, he writes, “the individual alone is responsible for the different forms they assume.”

So What Causes the Lunatic’s Nightmare?

When 1080 takes on the lunatics nightmare aspect, there is a cause. It is usually a reaction against excessive  power and brute force being used  to solve problems. Tone down the brute force, and the lunatic’s nightmares will also lessen. This internal link below explains a little more about number 1080.
