Spider, Surya Yantra and 3 x 3 number square. Symbols are imbued with power. The spider is highly significant in this regard. With its power, its bite can be anywhere from annoying to deadly. As a symbol it also is highly representative. Throughout history, spiders have been depicted in popular culture, mythology and in symbolism. From Greek mythology to African folklore, the spider has been used to represent a variety of things, and endures into the present day, It characterizes, among others, Shelob from The Lord of the Rings and spider man from the eponymous comic series.
The basic becomes the most complex. The cosmos, including the spider, grows out of this 3 x 3 grain of mustard seed.
On the Hebriac Tree of Life, the heart is Tifereth. The span of Tifereth is Paradise. Buddha made this construct into the Eightfold noble path. On a parallel note, at the embryo of the I Ching are eight trigrams. They, like the Tree of Life, are also arranged as an octagon around a center. I offer the following quotation below from my, The Staff of God Volume I.
SYMBOL OF THE SPIDER TRANSCENDS RELIGIONS
The eight trigrams were invented by the mytholoical emporer Fu-Hsi
His dates were from 2953-2838 B.C.
He was the 1st of the 5 emporers of China’s legendary period.
Parallel: At the center of 8 numbers on the square of three, sits number 5.
Emporer Fu-shi saw the I Ching marking on the back of a divine tortise.
Which is said to have inspired the 8 trigrams
On the tortise, dots replaced the numbers.
Dark dots were yin. Light dots were yang.
My thought is at one time in pre-history, knowledge of the 3 x 3 number square was more complete. Today, most are totally ignorant of its importance. It unified mankind. In this unity, peace was found. I hope we can restore this lost knowledge to bring about a new Golden Age. I think all of us deserve nothing less. Peace be with you.
Alchemists Looked to Neolithic Number Squares. Neolithic and even earlier Mesolithic builders took their inspiration from number squares. They placed their characteristic numbers into foundations. I’ve blogged about Lepenski Vir.Here is an excerpt from one:
Lepenski Vir is Proof of the use and understanding of an Ancient Number Square. A Mesolithic site on the Blue Danube used the codes of the square of three. Lepenski Vir (Лепенски Вир, Lepen Whirl) is an important Mesolithicarchaeological site located in Serbia in central Balkanpeninsula The latest radiocarbon and AMS data suggests that the chronology of Lepenski Vir is compressed between 9500/7200-6000 BC.
The entire foundation area is framed by a roughly rectangular shape frame of 185 x 55 yards. Over 1000’s of years the same dimensions have been used for many construction projects. Some examples:
185 yards equals 555 feet. George Washington’s Monument is 555 feet tall.
The blueprint of the Great Pyramid of Egypt dates back to 2,750 B.C. It is formed by interlocking two circles center to center. They each are 555 feet feet in diameter. Author John Michell wrote extensively about this subject. I was enlightened on the hidden codes on Oquaga Lake, not by John Michell, but by a spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe on Oquaga Lake.
Here is some samples of how to find the 555 code: Take two sets of three opposite numbers. Add them together. Then divide them by two for an average: Examples are 492 + 618 = 1110. Divided by two = 555. Another example, 834 + 276 = 1110, Divided by two = 555. The middle 951 is added to itself backwards as 159 + 951 = 1110. Divided by 2 = 555. Ths simple number square is also the most complex. The builders of its ancient foundation in Yugoslavia totally understood this. Now for some mathematical fun:
ALCHEMISTS USED NUMBER SQUARES TO TURN LEAD INTO GOLD
Here’s what the alchemists thought of number squares and of this square in particular : (1) They unified all the sciences and arts. (2) They were thought to hold the elusive secret of turning lead into gold.
Each of the 7 known planets in antiquity was represented by the banner of a number square and a metal. Saturn’s was the featured 3 x 3 and metal, lead . The Sun was the 6 x 6 and gold.
The Sun, square (gold) totalled numbers 1 through 36. Add these numbers 1 + 2 + 3 …through 36. They total the Biblical 666. Saturn’s (lead) were 1 – 9. They total 45. This is 621 less than the other total However:
Let’s add the alchemical fusion of numbers to the square of Saturn. We will consider the numbers three at the time. This will be done vertically and horizontally.
(1) horizontally: 492 + 618 = 1110. 816 + 294 = 1110. Any number that crosses the cenral three at the time is its own number backwards. (This is so much like the triplet codons of the RNA-DNA code.) Thus, 357 + 753 = 1110, The horizontal total is 3330. Now let’s look at the vertical total:
(2) Vertically: 438 + 672 = 1110. 276 + 834 = 1110, 951 + 159 = 1110. The vertical total is 3330.
(3) Finally, add vertical and horizontal totals together as the alchemists did: 3330 + 3330 = 6660. Zero was a synthetic number in antiquity. It was formed by the combination of any two opposite numbers on the 3 x 3 square. The numbers on the square were the 9 prime numbers. Ten was a synthetic number combination as 9 + 1; or 3 + 7 etc. Ten was not an entity in and of itself. Thus, by the association with the not so obvious code of the square of three of Saturn; we have just equated it with the numerical properties of the square of the Sun by common number. We have just turned the lead of Saturn into the gold of the Sun. Most certainly, this is a wonderful symbolic thought. It is a refinement of baser qualities (lead) into higher and noble qualities (gold) .
Atlantean Leanings on the 3 x 3 Number Square. This will require many blogs. First, learn two hidden ways of reading this number square given below. Many of my blogs are about its codes. They extend to infinity. Atlantis and its history animates this square. Most obvious, King Uranus had 45 children by different wives. The totals the numbers of the featured square (numbers 1 thru 9). Ancients recognized not only the obvious code where any row of three totals 15, but two hidden codes. This gave rise to three centers and three perimeters. Notice, the illustration below has three land masses (centers) surrounded by three canals (perimeters). The obvious one is 5 surrounded by the 8 numbers that total 40. Here are two more:
View the square by 3 numbers at the time. Pair them by opposites. Also, any three numbers that cross the center is its own opposite number. Their sum is always 1,110. Example, 492 + 618 = 1,110. Or, 951 + 159 = 1,110. The center becomes 555. The four sides of the perimeter total 2,220.
View the square 2 numbers at the time by opposites. Any two numbers that crosses the center are paired in the same row. The sum is always 110. Thus, 49 + 61 = 110. Or, 35 + 75 = 110. The 110 can be pulled out of the square in 16 ways. Thus, 16 X 110 = 1,760. The center then becomes 55. It is surrounded by 440.
A map showing the supposed extent of the Atlantean Empire. From Ignatius L. Donnelly‘s Atlantis: the Antediluvian World, 1882.
Another demonstration of the square and Atlantis involves the Titans. There were 18 of them as opposed to 27 other children. Both totals demonstrate properties of the 3 x 3 number square. Let’s play tick-tack-toe: The length or width of the square is the length of 3 boxes. The diagonal becomes 1,412…. times longer than the length of any of the square’s sides. The length of the diagonal of a square is expressed by √2 x the length of a side. In this case, √2 x 3 = 4.24264…It just so happens that 4.24264…when squared equals 18. We have the 18 Titans. I’ve also blogged about how 18, and the entire number square structures the periodic chart. In the case of the present blog, it shows Atlantean mastery of the 3 x 3 square.
So Where are the other Atlantean 27 Children, You Ask?
The 3 x 3 magic square has three manifestations primarily used by the ancients. They are by ones, tens and hundreds. It takes three tick-tack-toe boards to define this characteristic. Thus 3 x 9 (boxes per manifestation) = 27. Watch for more blogs on Atlantis. Since this is my 250th blog, I felt it had to be special. Enjoy!
Gauges of a Lost World are found in an Isosceles Right Triangle . The shorter legs in this triangle are each 12 British inches in length. A foot long ruler graphically illustrates the length. Why did I say also? At the turn of the 1900’s Jay Hambidge made a significant discovery. He discovered an ancient canon of measures. They were derived from a square that measured one Egyptian remen on each side (1.2165 feet). The quote of measures below is from, Peace Can Be Uncovered by Discovering the Distant Past. This is the title of my post on DSOworks.com. Currently I have over 240 posts.
Jay Hambidge multiplied the remen by the square roots of 2,3,4,5,etc…… He found that:
1.2165 x square root of 2 =1.72 feet.One royal cubit
1.2165 x square root of 3 =2.107 feet. One Palestinian cubit.
1.2165 x square root of 4 = 2.433 feet. One Roman pace.
1.2165 x square root of 5 = 2.72 feet, One megalithic yard.
1.2165 x square root of 6 = 2.98 feet (virtually one British yard).
These same measure labels are close to duplication the isosceles right triangle in the featured picture.
The half diagonal of the initial square, AKB and 4th point,( the right end of line V1,) is 1.118 tones longer than any side. Each side of the initial square gauges a remen of 1,2165 feet. The half diagonal is not in this particular illustration. The half diagonal is elaborated on in City of Revelation by John Michell. Above picture is the Jay Hambidge drawing of the dynamic rectangle from “The Elements of Dynamic Symmetry,” Dover Art Instruction, 1926. Lines BC and AC in the Golden Triangle are both 12 British inches. The hypotenuse becomes longer by the √2 = 16.97 inches. Next, draw the altitude of this triangle. This is from corner “C” to the line that bisects AB in the featured picture. We’ll call this point “D”. It is virtually 8.5 inches or ½ the length of the hypotenuse. . We have the following figures for comparison to the Hambidge model:
AB + BD = 1.707 feet. Hambidge’s figure is 1.718 feet which is hishorter Egyptian cubit
AB + AC = 2.707 feet. Hambidge’s is 2.72 feet which is his megalithic yard.
CD + CA = 1.207 feet. Hambidge’s is 1.2165 feet which is the Egyptian remen.
Most remarkable: The perimeter around the triangle is gauges 3.41 feet. This is the Central American measure of the Hunab. I have blogged about how this measure most likely preceded the formal creation in Genesis. It is not in Jay Hambidge’s canon. It equates by gematria (341). Aleph, the 1st letter= 1. Mem, the second letter = 40. Shin, the third letter = 300. Thus 1 + 40 + 300 = 341. Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan disucsses Emesh in Sefer Yitzirah: The Book of Creation-in Theory and Practice. Chapter 3, section 2.
Original Word: אָ֫מֶשׁ Part of Speech: Adverb Transliteration: emesh Phonetic Spelling: (eh’-mesh) Short Definition: yesterday
Teotihuacan and many sites in Central American were measured by the hunab. Ref. Mysteries of the Mexican Pyramids by Peter Tompkins. Hence my theory is: The Golden Isoseles Triangle was used for measure a world that was destroyed i.e. before creation found in Genesis 1 :2- When the world was “unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” When measure was once more standardized, it used the canon of measures rediscovered by Hambidge.
