Central Pillar

Central Pillar and the 3 x 3 Number Square

Central Pillar and the 3 x 3 Number Square. In the featured picture the corner numbers on the Lo shu are 4,9,3 and 5. Remaining 5 remaining numbers are called the gnomon. These five are 2,7,6,1, and 8. There are three more possible corner/gnomon arrangements. That can be a subject for future blogs. The Tree of Life uses this one arrangement on the central pillar: The upper left corner v. its gnomon. Here are some instructions on how to read and compare the two systems. A vanished civilization knew what you are about to read. They enjoyed a Golden Age until they succumbed to a worldwide cataclysm. Certainly, Plato’s account of Atlantis fits this description. Allusions to this lost culture are found in the survival of ancient measurements. Below are a couple of my internal links.

Clues about Atlantis are also found in the Temples on Malta
5500 year old Temple in Malta. My treatise called “Sacred Engineers’ Philosophy: The Pinnacle of Thought in the Unified Culture of Ancient Builders.” is placed at a triangle’s center that defines the megalithic yard.

Central Pillar and its Link to the 3 x 3 Number Square

First, what is a number square? It is found in recreational mathematics and combinatorial design. A magic square[1]  filled with distinct positive integers in the range . Each cell contains a different integer. The integers in each row, column and diagonal are equal.[2] Now to compare the two systems:

  • On the number square, multiply the numbers of the upper  left corner: 4 x 5 x 9 x 3 = 540.
  • Multiply the gnomon numbers: 2 x 7 x 6 x 1 x 8 = 672.

Next, look at the central pillar on the Tree of Life:

  • Multiply the Central numbers of the four emanations (circles):1 x 6 x 9 x 10 = 540. This duplicates 540  product of the upper left corner of the number square.
  • Take the central pillar numbers again. Add them: 1 + 6 + 9 + 10 = 26. Square 26 as 26² = 676. This is not the 672 gnomon product above. However, by rules of gematria, one can be added to each word or factor, in this case- circle, without essentially altering its meaning. We have 4 circles on the central pillar. Thus 672 + 4 = 676. We have congruence again. Gematria is explained in great depth by my favorite author, John Michell. His books are extremely rare and difficult to come by.

Three Square Code

Three Square Code Structures Stonehenge

Three Square Code Structures Stonehenge. Life often offers us the polarity of opposites. Something stands in opposition to something else.

This tiny number square gives rise to the pillar arrangement at Stonehenge. It was used in countless ways by ancient historic and even prehistoric civilizations. Currently we are entering a new age. It will be marked by peace and plenty. This is also known as a Golden Age. The same arrangement that formed the Palestinian cubit and the Egyptian cubit also structured the pillar arrangement at Stonehenge. Some information I quote from my own internal link below:

Two Ancient Reads From One Number Set

Abu Mūsā Jābir ibn Hayyān explains how this number square was divided into various corners and gnomons. I show how the dotted points below were the options that were used for the appropriate Egyptian and Palestinian cubits. It was also used for builiding Stonehenge.

  • Multiply the 4 corner numbers: 5 x 7 x 1 x 6 = 210. The Palestinian cubit is 2.107 feet.
  • Multiply the remaining five numbers which are called the gnomon: 8 x 3 x 4 x 9 x 2 = 1728. The larger Egyptian cubit is 1.728 feet.

First we must see who gave rise to realizing this division of the square three code in the particular manner that I will present. Abu Mūsā Jābir ibn Hayyān (Arabicجابر بن حیان‎‎, Persianجابر 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, was a polymath: a chemist and alchemistastronomer and astrologerengineergeographerphilosopherphysicist, and pharmacist and physician. Born and educated in Tus, he later traveled to Kufa. He has been described as the father of early chemistry.[7][8][9]

Three Square Code Uses Lower Right Corner and its Gnomon for Stonehenge

Numbers in a row are called a sequence. Sequence is also used in music and dance. Stonehenge uses 5,6,7, and 8:

  • 5 x 6 = 30. This numbers  inner stone circles.
  • 7 x 8 = 56. This numbers the outer holes.

 

Plan of the central stone structure.  The stones were dressed and fashioned with mortise and tenon joints before 30 were erected as a 108-foot (33 m) diameter circle of standing stones, with a ring of 30 lintel stones resting on top.

Three square code answers many questions.
Inner circles had 30 standing  megaliths. Outer Circle were dug with 56 pits. Above is a computer rendering.

For fun, add 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 26.  Now, let’s look at the two products and one sum we created from consecutive numbers 5,6,7 and 8: They are 30, 56 and 26. Any beginning student of chemistry knows these numbers define the most stable isotope of iron: (1) 30 neutrons. (2) atomic number 56 (3) Finally 56  – 30 = 26.  That is the atomic number of iron. Why is this important? Iron is the ash of nuclear fusion on stars. When enough iron is at the star’s core, it explodes. This creates all the heavier elements than iron.

Here’s the big question: Does Stonehenge represent the cosmic stellar process of creation? Was this known in the distant past? Or, is this just another numerical co-incidence?

 

Plus one factor is prominent

Plus one factor shared by Geometry and Math

Plus one factor shared by Geometry and Math. This post applies to all of the prominent ancient number squares. For various reasons, they are also called magic squares. What characterizes  these squares of numbers? In recreational mathematics and combinatorial design, a magic square[1] is a {\displaystyle n\times n} square grid (where n is the number of cells on each side) filled with distinct positive integers in the range {\displaystyle 1,2,…,n^{2}}

  • Each cell contains a different integer.
  • The sum of the integers in each row, column and diagonal is equal.[2]

So Where is the Plus One Factor?

Plus one factor here is the Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence. Location is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Eight people are in the picture. The plus one factor becomes the bell.

The plus one in number squares is one thing above and beyond  obvious definition on the number square. Let’s look at the application in geometry first. The 3 by 3 number square is the smallest that can be constructed. It has 2 parallel lines that intersect two more parallel lines.  Thus, 3 x 3 columns of vertical and horizontal numbers, are set on a 2 x 2 set of horizontal and vertical lines.  Note:  By custom, these parallel lines are not encased by a square. Surrounding these nine numbers by a square would then create 4 x 4 parallel lines. In a way, this hides the true nature of the number square in consideration.  Number square perimeters  should be left open ended as in the featured picture. I must confess, some of my earlier number square pictures are encased.

Here is the  mathematical plus one factor: This number square contains the numbers 1 to 9. Any straight row of three totals 15. Opposite numbers total ten. Hence, the following sets of numbers total 10: 4 + 6; 3 + 7; 8 + 2; and 9 + 1. The plus one factor becomes the total of the opposite numbers- 10. Ten is above and beyond the nine. It is not even notated on the prime number square; being invisible, like the Deity. So how does this apply in religious antiquity?

The 1st of the 10 Commandments is the Plus One Factor

The 10 Commandments are thus modeled on the 3 x 3 number square. The 1st commandment is actually not a commandment. It is a statement of the presence of the Deity who is above and beyond everything. He is invisible, like the number 10.  Compare it to the “colel” in numbers. That’s why in the 10 Commandments it becomes a statement as opposed the apparent nature of the other nine numbers.

 

Graphic Polarity Activation

Graphic Polarity Activation on the 3 x 3 Square

Graphic Polarity Activation on the 3 x 3 square. The prime number square of every higher number square is the 3 x 3. The complete, traditional, square is pictured at the bottom of the featured picture. There are a number of possible arrangements, possibly seven. However, the understanding of the distant past begins with this traditional. Many blogs on DSOworks are about this number square. Check them out by key word. They are free to view. I currently have some 570 posts about two primary subjects: (1) Music (2) Number squares. Most of the posts on number squares about the 3 x 3. It is the simplest, yet the most complex. Both of these subjects were the backbone of a former and lost Golden Age.

Graphic polarity activation uses Saturn as a model.
Saturn has numerous rings. The 3 x 3 number square has an infinity of perimeters.

The full set of rings, imaged as Saturn eclipsed the Sun from the vantage of the Cassini orbiter.  It was 1.2 million km distant, on 19 July 2013.  The brightness is exaggerated. Earth appears as a dot at 4 o’clock. Our planet can be seen between the G and E rings. Most important for this blog: The rings of Saturn are the most extensive ring system of any planet in the Solar System. Why is the important? There are three obvious perimeters around this number square. However, the number of possible rings goes to infinity.

Graphic Polarity Activation Instructions

Reference the traditional arrangement at the bottom as I point our a few of the possibilities. Also a have a number of internal links on infinity and this number square. Also, “perfect numbers” favor this number square. Ancients knew this. Today, our civilization does not. Of course, there once was a Golden Age. Today peace and plenty seem be  elusive. Here are a couple of such links on DSOworks.com:

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

High Perfect Numbers in Ancient Times

Graphic Polarity Activation on Isaiah 45:2-3 New International Version (NIV)

I will go before you
    and will level the mountains[a];
I will break down gates of bronze
    and cut through bars of iron.
I will give you hidden treasures,
    riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

  • How does Isaiah allude to graphic polarity activation with the above? Look at the chapter number. It is 45. Total the numbers 1 to 9 in the grid. The order does not matter. Sum =  45.
  • Next, look at the two verse numbers of the Scripture. They they are verses 2 and 3. The sum of the verse numbers define the central number of the number square. 2 + 3 = 5. “Five” activates the entire system of all number squares. This is the smallest and prototype of all number squares.
  • Breaking the gates of brass and cutting through the bars of iron allude to reading the numbers without the grid. See the internal links above.
  • Specific applications will be covered in future blogs.
  • Please credit an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe for my knowledge of this number square. Her haunt is Oquaga Lake at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. I was Scott’s piano player for some 15 summer seasons. There, I encountered the spirit on hikes in the Catskill Mountains.

    Oquaga Lake is the haunt of the Oquaga spirit of the Lennie Lenape. The resort has been revitalized.  A number of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel TV episodes were just filmed here. The cast and crew loved the place. Watch Oquaga Lake and Scott’s this coming season on the Marvelous Mrs. Maisal.

 

 

Traditional ancient arrangement of the 3 x 3 number square
This number square has been waiting for millennium to be reactivated.

 

Measurement interchange is here.

Measurement Interchange on the Great Pyramid

Measurement Interchange on the Great Pyramid. The Great Pyramid uses different units of measure. British Antiquarian John Frederick Carden Michell (9 February 1933 – 24 April 2009) was an English author and esotericist who was a prominent figure in the development of the Earth mysteries movement. He discusses how the Great Pyramid was conceived by three primary measurement units: They were (1) the 12″ foot. (2) The 1.71818…foot long, shorter Egyptian cubit.  (3) The 2.7272… foot long megalithic yard.   In his View over Atlantis, he states that:

In repose, 2008
Antiquarian author, John Michell

“The important discoveries about the past have been made not so much through the present refined techniques of treasure hunting and grave robbery, but through the intuition of those whose faith in poetry led them to scientific truth.”

This is the Measurement Interchange for the Great Pyramid- It Spearheaded  a Former Golden Age

Measurement interchange of antiquity
This is the measurement interchange for the Great Pyramid of Egypt.

I credit the Lennie Lenape NE American Indians for my discovery for my discovery the hidden engineering capabilities of the 3 x 3 number square. An Indian spirit guide accompanied me on walks around Oquaga Lake. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House over some 15 summer seasons. She instructed me on the infinite codes hidden in this number square. Read the internal link if you wish to understand the math:

Measurement Interchange was discovered here.
Meditating with one of my sons at sunset on beautiful Oquaga lake. It is perched some 2000 feet above sea level in the Catskill Mountains. The water is crystalline clear.

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

Here is the Measurement Interchange

  1. Go around the perimeter overlapping two number at the time: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440.  The square base of the Great Pyramid measures 440 cubits on each side.
  2. Go around the perimeter again by single numbers and add them: 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 40. Add the numbers of the two perimeters thus far” as 440 + 40 = 480. The height of the un untruncated   Great Pyramid is 480 feet.
  3. Add opposite numbers around the perimeter three at the time as 438 + 672 = 1110. This number-1,110- can be found in 7 more  ways. The perimeter around the Great Pyramid is also 1,110 megalithic yards.

Thus, we have found the functioning of the three primary units of antiquity demonstrated at the Great Pyramid through this simple number square. Speaking of Michell’s mention of poetry, I have a book of poetry called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. Here is a sample.

Mexican Pyramid of the Sun Outline of Base

Mexican Pyramid Squares the Circle

Mexican Pyramid Squares the Circle. First. What is “square the circle?” Squaring the circle is a problem proposed by ancient geometers. It is the challenge of constructing a square with the same area as a given circle.  You may only use a finite number of steps with compass and straightedge. In 1882, the task was proven to be impossible.  This was a consequence of the Lindemann–Weierstrass theorem.  But wait a minute. Lindemann and Weierstrass did not consider R. Buckminister Fuller’s theories in conjunction with the Mexican Pyramid of the Sun.

Mexican Pyramid Really Spheres the Circle

So who was R. Buckminster Fuller?

R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER, 1895 – 1983

The Estate of R. Buckminster Fuller:

Hailed as “one of the greatest minds of our times,” R. Buckminster Fuller was renowned for his comprehensive perspective on the world’s problems. For more than five decades, he developed pioneering solutions that reflected his commitment to the potential of innovative design to create technology that does “more with less”. Born in Milton, Massachusetts, on July 12, 1895, Richard Buckminster Fuller belonged to a family noted for producing strong individualists. They were inclined toward activism and public service. Fuller developed an early understanding of nature during family excursions to Bear Island, Maine.  He also became familiar with the principles of boat maintenance and construction. Below are a couple of internal links for further information.

Comparing the Mexican Pyramid of the Sun and Fuller’s Formula for Packing of Spheres

Packing of spheres in successive layers falls under a formula. It was discovered by R. Buckminster Fuller. It’s the number of the particular layer being considered, squared x 10 + 2. You can pinpoint how many spheres successivelyen circle a central sphere. Here are the 1st five examples.

  • For the 1st layer, 1² x 10 + 2 = 12 spheres.
  • The 2nd layer we have 2² x 10 + 2 = 42.
  • For the 3rd layer,  3² x 10 + 2 = 92.
  • The 4th layer is 4² x 10 + 2 = 162.
  • The 5th layer is 5² x 10 + 2 = 252.

Ancients looked at what things had in common by common numbers. This was regardless of unit of measure used. We can thus equate the packing of the 5th  layer of spheres with the measure of the Mexican Sun Pyramid.  Also, Plato’s Ideal City, in his Republic,  had 2520 rings. Is this line of thought just fun? Perhaps. But also, perhaps there is no such thing as mere co-incidence?

 

 

 

One thread spans the globe

Mayan Egyptian Connection Spans Atlantic Ocean

Mayan Egyptian Connection Spans Atlantic Ocean. Who were the Mayans? The Maya developed their first civilization in the Preclassic period.[9] Scholars continue to discuss when this era of Maya civilization began. Discoveries of Maya occupation at Cuello, Belize have been carbon dated to around 2600 BC.[10]  The civilization still had great endurance. Look back some 3,000 years. Mayan Tikal was around from 250 to 700 AD. At its height during the Late Classic, the Tikal city polity had expanded to have a population of well over 100,000.[37]

Egyptian Mayan connection
Part of the courtyard at Tikal.

Egyptian Mayan Connection

We have no written evidence of connection between the two cultures and their countries. But, we do have similarity by measurement. Many are too fixated on proof by written record. They forget that numbers and letters once shared the same symbol. This practice of using the same symbol for both is  called gematria- a Greek word. Only our modern languages (except Hebrew) have separate symbols for both. In effect, when you made a measurement, you also  could imply a (1) A word. (2) A phrase. (3) An entire sentence. (4) Even a larger unit of writing translated into numbers.

Great Court at Tikal

A surviving Mayan great court is at Tikal. It outlines a rectangle. East to West is 400 feet in length. North to South is 250  feet in width. The courtyard is flanked by platforms, large temples and pyramids. The ratio of the length to the width of the Tikal courtyard is 8:5. Note 400/250 = 8/5 = 1.6. Compare this to the Great Pyramid of Egypt.  One side of the square base is smaller Egyptian 440 cubits of 1.71818…feet.  Its truncated height is 275 of the same sized cubits. 440÷275 = 8/5 = 1.6.

Comparing the Great Pyramid’s Dates to the Mayan first civilization in the Preclassic period.[9]

Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang. and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built around 2560 BC. As stated above, Mayan carbon dating goes back to 2600 B.C. The dimensions of the Mayan courtyard and of the Great Pyramid had the same ratio of 8 to 5. These numbers are part of the Fibonacci series:

Related imageLeonardo Bonacci who was born 600 years before Beethoven. The Fibonacci series, named after him. is colored in red. Beethoven used the Fibonacci numbers in composing his fifth symphony. In the internal link underneath, I relate Fibonacci numbers to ancient number squares. I don’t know that Fibonacci ever made the connection?

BEETHOVEN’S DELIBERATE USE OF THE FIBONACCI NUMBERS

Behind Leonardo Bonacci’s back, the highest red number is 55. Each new number is the sum of the preceding two. Number 34 precedes 55. So, let’s continue the series: 34 + 55 = 89. Next, 55 + 89 = 144. Next 89 + 144 = 233 (the length of Beethoven’s opening section). Next 144 + 233 = 377 (which  the length of Beethoven’s development section). Beethoven, being the brilliant genius that he was, knew exactly what he was doing. Note in red numbers. Number five is the 1st separated number. It is not consecutive. Almost every composer uses phrases in 4 bars. The genius of Beethoven made the opening phrase 5 bars long on purpose. He knew what he was doing!

Here is an Egyptian Mayan connection
Five bar opening phrases of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.

The Best Architecture and Music are at Least Based on Tradition

The Egyptian Mayan connection  of the 8 to five ratio is found with Beethoven. Of course, in this symphony Beethoven uses many phrases also use 8 bar phrases.  When we listen to his 5th symphony it sounds natural. Can you imagine how he must have struggled to make the bar length come out right? Leonard Bernstein says of Beethoven and the 1st movement in The Joy of Music: “he will give away his life just to make sure that one note follows another inevitably.” In conclusion, I think that in addition to an even greater appreciation of Beethoven, we have graphic proof the relationship between music, numbers and architecture in this post:  The Mayan Egyptian Connection and even more.  This is why music lessons, theory and composition increase aptitude for mathematics.

Merry Christmas Number Square

Merry Christmas Number Square Sums it Up

Merry Christmas Number Square Sums it all Up. December 25, Christmas Day, is the 359th day of the year (360th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. This blog is about the 7  x 7 magic number square. It could well be called the Merry Christmas Number square. First of all what is a number square?….. Magic number squares only require the sum of each row, column and diagonal of numbers equal the same sum.  Second, what defines the 7 x 7 number square? Ancient civilizations were into number squares. Each of the 7 known planets had its own square of numbers. Also, seven was known as a virgin  and prime number.  It cannot be evenly divided by any other number other than itself.

Merry Christmas Number Square Sums it Up

  •   The 7 x 7 number square was assigned to Venus. She was goddess of beauty. So was also connected to Greek goddess Athena. Because 7 was called a “virgin number,”  it is associated with Mary, mother of Jesus.
  • Note the central number of the 7 x 7 square. It is number 25. That numbers Christmas Day.
  •  Total all the numbers in the 7 x 7 number square. Those are the the sum of  all the numbers from one to fifty. Their total is 1225. Read this as 12/25 and you have both Christmas month and day.

Certainly, there is lots of “magic” in the air during this wonderful holiday time.

Below is an internal link to a fun story for the Holiday Season.  Rubinoff, the famed violinist, literally brought holiday cheer all year round to children. I recently gave a concert under the auspices of the Ted Lewis Big Band Museum. The concert was under the baton of museum curator,  Joseph Rubin in Circleville, Ohio. Since I was Rubinoff’s arranger and accompanist, Maestro Rubin asked me to play in the concert.   Rubinoff spent a good part of his life giving concerts for children in public schools. In the “gag” picture, found  in the internal  link, comedian Jimmy Durante is playing Rubinoff’s violin (not very well, I might add) Rubinoff is clowning around at the piano. What fun!

Our best wishes for a happy holiday season- David and Sharon.

 

 

Rubinoff Concert Review of the 1930’s

Three Square Code

Harappan Civilization & Square of Saturn Aspects

Harappan Civilization & Square of Saturn Aspects. Harappa was part of an Indus Valley Civilization .  The square of three of Saturn, pictured above, was preserved in ancient cultures worldwide. Ancients connected this square with the planet, Saturn. Both measurement and engineered are derived from this number square. Why? I believe it goes back to a destroyed civilization that predates recorded history. Perhaps it was Atlantis? Plato wrote of the reality of this legend.  Generations of survivors  made an attempt to preserve their knowledge of Atlantis through this number square. It was once the ideal behind a Golden Age.

Harappan Civilization  and its Scope

Harappan civilization  coincides with  what is Pakistan and northwest India today.  It flourished over  the fertile flood plain of the Indus River and its vicinity. Religious practices of the Indus valley culture date back to  approx. 5500 BCE. The ruins of Mohenjo-daro were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980.

Harappa and Mohenjo-daro were built on uniform grid-plan blocks. They had town planning and standard streets. Even houses were set out by a code. By 2350 B.C. the two cities were well established. They traded by land and sea with the Summerians.

Image result for picture of the citadel at Harappa
The citadel at Harappa formed a parallelogram which drew on the math of the 3 x 3 number square

Harappa’s citadel  parallelogram is 645 from east to west. It measures 1380 feet from north to south. On length and width totals 2025 feet. This figure squares forty-five as: 45² = 2025. Look at the 3 x 3 number square. The nine numbers total 45. This is one way the civilization drew on the 3 x 3 number square.

Here’s a second: Just North of the citadel was the state granary. It measured 150 feet from east to west. The North to south width was 75 feet. One length and width totals 225 feet. Look at the 3 x 3 number square. Any row of three numbers totals 15 feet. Thus, 15² = 225.

There are many other parallels which will be the subject of future blogs. The internal link below offers  one example of the depth of the 3 x 3 number square.

Two Seven Two – What are these Three Numbers About?

Two Seven Two – What are these Three Numbers About? They provide a numerical key to lost prehistoric antiquity. Clues of the past have many forms and fashions. Numbers are one of them. A primarily defined number is megalithic yard. It was 2.72 feet. Professor Alexander Thom of Oxford University established this accepted measure. For background on the subject, study writings of the John Michell. His books have been my companions for over fifty years. Now they are mostly out of print and difficult to acquire.

Megalithic Measure Survives in Unexpected Ways

Megalithic Measurement in Malta comes from a simple number square. It is a straight read of numbers.

Megalithic Measure in Malta

Megalithic Measure Survives in Unexpected Ways

How Megalithic Measure Comes From the Traditional Arrangement of the 3 x 3 Number Square

  • A megalithic inch is 0.816 inches. That is a straight read across the bottom- left to right, on the 3 x 3 number square pictured to the right. If you reverse these numbers you have 618.  These are the square root numbers of the Golden Section. This was called “phi” by the ancient Greeks- 1.618…. The square root is o.618 feet.
  • A megalithic yard contains forty megalithic inches. Here’s the arithmetic: 40 x 0.816 = 32.64 inches. Next, 32.64″/12″ = 2.72 feet –  or 1 MY. Next:
  • Add the 8 perimeter numbers.  You have 8 + 1 + 6 + 7 + 2 + 9 + 4 + 3 = 40.  It is no co-incidence  that there are 40 megalithic inches in the megalithic yard.
  • In summary: Three primary ancient numbers come from the perimeter: (1) The megalithic inch as 816 comes from the bottom three perimeter numbers- left to right. (2) Phi’s square root numbers are from the same bottom perimeter but reversed as  right to left (618). (3) The number of megalithic inches in the megalithic yard as 40 from the entire perimeter.

This blog is the tip of the iceberg. Keep reading the posts on DSOworks for more information on the subject as well as on music. It will be forthcoming.
