Characteristic cousins are the best way to describe these number squares

Characteristic Cousins are Found in Two Number Squares

Characteristic Cousins are Found in Two Number Squares. Number squares all have characteristic or featured numbers. The list below describes some of these.  First, consider the 5 x 5.

  • It is the sum of numbers 1 -25 = 325.
  • Any straight row of five numbers totals 65.
  • Any two opposite numbers equals 26.
  • The perimeter equals 208. The perimeter is the outside square casing.
  • The one central number is 13.

Now consider the larger 8 x 8 in the featured picture:

  • The sum of all the numbers 1 – 64 = 2080.
  • Any straight row of 8 numbers totals 260.
  • Any two opposite numbers = 65.
  • The perimeter equals = 910.
  • The four central numbers total 130

Mars and Mercury Are Characteristic Cousins by ancient  use of number Squares

Somehow the 5 x 5 was attributed to Mars. The 8 x 8 called on Mercury. To us today, this seems mysterious.

 

Characteristic Cousins All Over the Place

Zero was considered to be a synthetic number in antiquity. Read the internal link below.

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

With this in mind look at the common characteristic numbers between these two squares. First, I should mention they are both Fibonacci numbers: Five and eight are part of the series that grow by addition of consecutive numbers:  1,1,2, 3, 5, 8,13,21,34… etc. Hence, their number squares also belong to this same  series. These number squares defined key ancient buildings. For this post let’s look some of the common numbers:

  •  On the 5 x 5 any straight row of five numbers totals 65. On the 8 x 8 any two opposite numbers = 65.
  • On the 5 x 5 any two opposite numbers totals 260. On the 8 x 8 any row totals 260.
  • The central number on the 5 x 5 is 13. The perimeter around the 8 x 8 is the sum of the numbers 1 through 13   =91 and then  multiplied by 10.  It duplicates becomes the total of the 910 perimeter around the 8 x 8.

The point is: The designers of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid both knew and drew on this. More in future posts.

 

Golden Anniversary number is of the 7x 7 number square

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.

Golden Anniversary Number
Any two opposite numbers total 50. For example: 22 + 28. Another opposite set, 23 + 27. Another is 28 + 12 etc. The silver 25 anniversary is at the center.

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

The 50th Jubilee year is a time of freedom for all. So are the basic tenets of America and all freedom loving countries.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aquarian Number Square

Aquarian Number Square of Saturn is Being Activated

Aquarian Number Square of Saturn is Being Activated. Each planet has its own number square. This parallels each astrological sign being ruled by its own planet(s). Here is the traditional association:

  • 3 x 3 rules Saturn.
  • 4 x 4 is Jupiter.
  • 5 x 5 is Mars.
  • 6 x  6 rules the Sun.
  • 7 x 7 rules Venus.
  • 8 x 8 is Mercury.
  • 9 x 9 is the Moon.

The planet Uranus was discovered by William Herschel,  Date was March 13, 1781. Before then, Saturn was the sole ruler of Aquarius.

Nicholas Campion wrote a book,The Book of World Horoscopes.  It lists various references. These are about astrological sources for the start of the Age of Aquarius. Based on Campion’s research 29 “experts” claim it arrived in the 20th century.  The 24th century in second place with twelve claimants.[4]

The Book of World Horoscopes: Nicholas Campion

My conclusion as to the Aquarian beginning sides with the 20th century. Why? I was privileged to gain insights of the ancients into the 3 x 3 number square. It was of Saturn. The numbers interact in an infinite number of ways. It looks like the smallest number square. But, it is the largest due to interaction by polar opposites. Interaction is an integral part of love and brotherhood.

Weather Also Points to the Arrival of the Aquarian Age

 All the rainfall and flooding we are experiencing is in keeping with these astrological cycles: They divided this cycle into four quarters formed by signs of the Zodiac (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius). It took 6,500 years to pass through each quarter. They knew the biggest disasters took place at the summer and winter solstices of this cycle. It is claimed that glaciers melted due to global warming, the waters rose nearly 90 meters…

Tenfold is on a Tiny Number Square That Grows to Infinity – DSO Work

Professionally I am a piano player.  Many summers were spent with my family on Oquaga Lake. It is located by Deposit, New York, Location is just over the Delaware river.  I was the piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. The area was the former dwelling place of the Lennie Lenape tribe. I led many hikes through the Catskill Mountains. There, I sensed a female spirit’s presence. It communicated its knowledge of this number square.  Perhaps the 3 x 3 number square is merely the icing on an already served delicious, Aquarian cake?

post five hundred

Post Five Hundred as Five Was Antiquity’s Crown Jewel

Post Five Hundred as Five Was Antiquity’s Crown Jewel. I feel this post is a mile marker. Earlier I had mentioned my goal was 1,001. This was a number connected to Scherherazade. The story goes that King  Shahryar (شهریار Šahryār, from Middle Persian šahr-dār, “holder of the realm, king”)[1] discovered his first wife was unfaithful. Therefore, he resolved to marry a new virgin each day. He would kill the previous day’s wife. This way she would have no chance to be unfaithful. 1,001 women had their lives ended. Then he was introduced to Scheherazade, the vizier‘s daughter. Scherherazade told the King 1,001 tales. One each consecutive  night. After this, the king spared his Queen. Some background on this woman who saved countless women who would have followed is in the internal link below.

Post Five Hundred Commemorates Number Five

Well, here is my 500th story: Once upon a time number squares were the spine of a Golden Age. The first 7 were of primary significance. The first and smallest was 3 x 3. Number five sits at its center. It is at the kernel of the smallest of number squares. The entire cosmos grows from this grain of mustard seed. I have an internal link that explains some of its secret codes.  Below is an illustration of this tiny number square that becomes infinite.

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

post 500 hundred includes the 3 x 3 number square
Five is the crown jewel of all the number squares.

Each of these 7 were thought to invoke the influence of a planet. Here is the connection:

  • 3 x 3 was Saturn. It was the lawgiver.
  • 4 x 4 invoked Jupiter.
  • 5 x 5 was of Mars.
  • 6 x 6 called on the Sun
  • 7 x 7 was Venus
  • 8 x 8 was Mercury
  • 9 x 9 was our Moon

My posts can all be freely accessed. A former Golden Age was marked by peace and plenty. I believe the codes of this tiny square were activated and then applied to achieve this purpose.

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.

Cancerian Music is inspired by the Moon.

Cancerian Music is Timely for this Zodiac Month of the Year

Cancerian Music is Timely for this Zodiac Month of the Year. We have entered the zodiac month of Cancer.  Its sign is- (♋️). Cancer is the fourth astrological sign in the Zodiac.Dates are between approximately June 21 and July 23.[2]

This excerpt is from my upcoming book: Music Under the Zodiac. I am keeping the core of the book secretive.  That part covers a novel approach to musical therapy. But, there are still many great tidbits I am able to share. First, the arch example of musical therapy is from the Bible. It states:  Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. The evil spirit would leave Saul. This is from I Samuel 16:23. 

Image result for Wikipedia what is musical therapy?
The most famous case of musical therapy was the soothing of King Saul by David.

So, What is Cancerian Music all About?

A ruling “planet” imbues a person with certain personality traits. The zodiac sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon. You might say, songs about the Moon partake of the sign of Cancer. This brings a most interesting factual story. Gabriel Fauré wrote the 1st and original Claire de Lune (Moonlight). Most have no knowledge of this. It is hauntingly beautiful.  Another fact that most do not know: Debussy’s Claire de Lune was originally called “Sentimental Promenade.” It was part of a dance suite called the Suite Bergamasque. Moonlight in no way implies dancing. A promenade is more in keeping with dancing. However, his editor insisted that Debussy change the music’s title. Debussy resisted. When he gave in, he discovered the editor was right! Sales skyrocketed. Now the question becomes: Is Claire de Lune really lunar music? Was it inspired by the Moon? Perhaps Debussy was walking in the Moonlight with someone he loved. That could have created his original title. Then, it still would be about Moonlight. Enjoy my own rendition of Debussy’s masterpiece.

Open Mind in my Book of Poetry-Oquaga Spirit Speaks

Open Mind in my Book of Poetry-The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. Who or what is the Oquaga Spirit? She is an essence that dwells around Oquaga Lake. I believe the spirit is that of an American Indian. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe.  Lenape kinship system has matrilineal clans. Children belong to their mother’s clan. From the mother’s clan, children gained social status and identity.

I (David) was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga lake House. My employment covered a span of about 25 years.  In the mornings I’d stroll and the spirit would be afloat.  “So much she needed an ear, she ignored my tranquility.” Some years we did not go to the lake. That was primarily when our children were in school. Over the decades the spirit changed her mode of communication. She primarily used two forms of poetry. Also, she instructed me on the hidden codes in number squares. I have been sharing her wisdom through this website.

Rustle, Rustle, Rustle Goes the Wind – Mentions an Open Mind

Then the scented summer wind
Will swoosh by to renew you.

  1. In the 1980’s she preferred iambic pentameter in quatrains.
  2. During the 1990’s she spoke in rhyming, triple meter. She also communicated her poetry in quatrains Here’s how quatrains are beneficial: . Quatrains of poetry invoke Jupiterian influences. Jupiter is the thinking-person’s planet. It is the guardian of the abstract mind. This planet rules higher learning. It bestows a yen for exploring ideas. This is both intellectually and spiritually. Number squares were once the guiding light of lost Golden Age. Also of key importance importance was the simplest number square. Ironically, it is also the most complex. It actually hides infinity. Check out my internal link below. You don’t even need an open mind for this blog. The math speaks for itself.

  3. Quatrains, in sets of four, invoke the 4 x 4 number square. Musical phrases also come in sets of 4 bars. They are called antecedent and consequent phrases. This same number square hides the pattern of the Fibonacci series. I believe we will enter a new Golden Age of Peace and Plenty. The wisdom of the American Indians can lead the way.

Enhancing Jupiter Creates Harmony

Enhancing Jupiter Creates Harmony. With this blog I again try to delve into the destroyed past. So much has been ruined. For one, the Library at Alexandria was burned down during Roman times.  It was the jewel par excellence of ancient knowledge.  In general, conquerors made it a habit to destroy even traces of their subdued civilizations.  Another example was ancient Carthage. It also was subdued by the Romans. About 50,000 Carthaginians were sold into slavery.[65] The city was set ablaze and razed to the ground.  Only ruins and rubble remain (feature picture). How did philosophers of the past attempt to prevent such occurrences?

Jupiter was thought to the great benefactor of mankind. This is symbolized in the woodcarving of the listless angel pictured below. It displays the classic  4 x 4 number square in the background.   Ancient civilizations used this number code to call on the beneficial effects of Jupiter. In the carving,  this square is mounted underneath the bell. The bell meant to draw her attention to it. When it does, she will cheer up. Being a musician, I have blogged extensively about harmony. Reading the 3 internal links below will offer background on this little known topic.

Enhancing Jupiter – This planet was associated with luck, fortune and wealth.

  • Plato refers to the 272 as the number of harmony in his Canon Harmonia was the wife of Cadmus. Her name in Greek, spelled with the letters add up to 272. This is by the rules of gematria.  Here is the connection between the 4 x 4 number square and harmony. Total all the numbers from 1 – 16 on this square. The sum is 136. Multiply 136 x 2 = 272. Harmony is therefore the twice enhanced value square of Jupiter. That poses a question:  Is a person who finds harmony in his is life twice as happy as one who has only found wealth?

Next, who or what is the Oquaga Spirit? She is an essence that dwells around Oquaga Lake. I believe it is an American Indian spirit. I (David) was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga lake House. My employment covered a span of about 25 years.  In the mornings I’d stroll and the spirit would be afloat.  “So much she needed an ear, she ignored my tranquillity.” Some years we did not go to the lake.

  2. During the 1990’s she spoke in rhyming, triple meter. She also communicated poetry in quatrains. Why quatrains? They bring about a beneficial effect. Quatrains of poetry invoke Jupiterian influences. Jupiter is the thinking-person’s planet. It is the guardian of the abstract mind. This planet rules higher learning. It bestows upon us a yen for exploring ideas. This is both intellectually and spiritually. Explanations of Jupiterian influences through a specific number square are on DSOworks.com
  3.  Below is an excerpt from a poem in iambic, written during the 1980’s.
Trust was spoken of by a spirit on this lake
View from our porch on Oquaga Lake

The spirit loved peaceful co-existence. Also, many poems were about beauty in nature. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe. This tribe was ruled by the women. The Lenape have a matrilineal clan system and historically were matrilocal.

Trust Among Nations

Mutual exchange among nations promotes peace.
When states have closed doors, mistrust develops.
People then image what horrors locked entries must hide.
Not realizing that inhabitants worldwide live similarly.

Though official doctrines of lands may differ,
Everyone eats, sleeps, drinks and works.
Nations tap their feet to the same rhythms.
They view sunrise and sunset with equal awe.

All over, people want to be liked and loved
As recorded in the songs and novels of writers.
Everywhere, people seek to understand mysteries of life.
In so doing they turn to religion or philosophy…

 

 

 

Musical Quaternity with the Four Elements

Musical Quaternity is Analogous to the Four Elements

Musical Quaternity is analogous to the Four Elements.  Here are the players:

  1. The musical quaternity for this blog includes melody, harmony, rhythm and counterpoint.
  2. The four elements are alchemical.  They comprise earth, air fire and water. On the wheel of the zodiac they each occur in rotation three times. This covers the 12 zodiac signs.
  3. Analogy (from Greek ἀναλογία, analogia, “proportion”[1][2]) is a cognitive process of transferring information or meaning from a particular subject – the analog or source, to another.  It has been argued that analogy is “the core of cognition”.[3]

Harmony is more like the combined, unified yet undifferentiated background. Harmony is the vertical aspect or sound of musical. It represents the combination of sounds at any given moment. Those qualities parallel water. Counterpoint is the horizontal direction of various lines the harmony holds. The two are  thus interconneted. horizontal axis.
Melody is tied to rhythm. You cannot have melody without rhythm. In alchemy, fire represents maximum molecular activity. Earth is minimum activity. It is grounded. With the vertical axis, fire rise. Rhythm gives melody shape and purpose. It provides the substance of melody. They are interconnected as the vertical axis.
