Tie Twelves Together in Several Combinations. I know, there are only 8 eggs in the frying pan. However, eggs are still sold by the dozen. I am delving into Neolithic thought. They venerated the “dozen.” They knew it was of a former age that knew ” plenty and peace.” Here are a few thoughts from Wikipedia:

A **dozen** (commonly abbreviated **doz** or **dz**) is a grouping of twelve.

The dozen may be one of the earliest primitive groupings, perhaps because there are approximately a dozen cycles of the moon or months in a cycle of the sun or year. Twelve is convenient because it has the most divisors of any number under 18.

The use of twelve as a base number, known as the duodecimal system (also as *dozenal*), originated in Mesopotamia (see also sexagesimal). This could come from counting on one’s fingers by counting each finger bone with one’s thumb.^{[citation needed]} Using this method, one hand can count to twelve, and two hands can count to 144. Twelve dozen (12^{2} = 144) are known as a gross; and twelve gross (12^{3} = 1,728, the duodecimal 1,000) are called a great gross, a term most often used when shipping or buying items in bulk. A great hundred, also known as a small gross, is 120 or ten dozen.

**Tie Twelves Together By the Number Square That Will Bring Peace to the Planet**

At one time there was a Golden Age. It was held together by a “grain of mustard seed”. This refers to the smallest possible number square. It was called the 3 x 3 number square. Here is the traditional setting of numbers.

Note the following “dozen” properties of this number square:

- At first glance, it has only four lines. Two diagonal and two vertical. However, each line is trisected. We now have 6 smaller horizontal and 6 smaller vertical lines.
- Here is the great gross. The number is 1,728. That number is the product of `12 x 12 x 12. I have blogged about gnomons and corners of this square. The medieval wizard of all wizards was
**Abu Mūsā Jābir ibn Hayyān.**He was nicknamed “Geber**.”**Below is the 15th-century European portrait of “Geber”, Codici Ashburnhamiani 1166, Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Florence### Finding Reads That Tie Twelves Together

“Geber” divided the

*square of three*in many ways.**Abu Mūsā Jābir ibn Hayyān**(Arabic: جابر بن حیان, Persian: جابر بن حیان, often given the nisbahs al-Bariqi, al-Azdi, al-Kufi, al-Tusi or al-Sufi; fl. c. 721 – c. 815),^{[6]}also known by the Latinization**Geber.**He developed the concept of corner v. gnomon. Take out four numbers of a corner. The five that are left are called the gnomon. Remove the corner of 5,7,6, and 1. Then the remaining 5 number gnomon becomes is 8-3-4-9-2. We have:

- Multiply the numbers of its gnomon: 8 x 3 x 4 x 9 x 2 = 1728. The larger Egyptian cubit is 1.728 feet. There is our hidden
**great gross.**

Finally: Here is the “great hundred” also known as the** small gross**. The number is 120. From the square, we arrive at 120 in two differing ways.

- Take the four corner lower right corner numbers. They are 3,5,8 and 1. Multiply them 3 x 5 x 8 x 1 = 120. We have the
**small gross.** - On the 3 x 3 number square 15 us found in 8 different ways. Three of vertical. Three are Horizontal Two are diagonal. Thus 8 x 15 = 120. We have the
**small gross**again.

Enjoy, live with, and work with this number square. It is the key to another Golden Age. DSOworks.com will keep the blogs coming.
