Triad Trinity and Temples Play Tick-Tack-Toe. Musical Temples Become a Reality in Tick Tack Toe Design. Here’s how: Right below is a blurry picture of the tick tack toe board blueprint that includes the basis of both the Holy Temples in Jerusalem. The First Temple based on the middle row of 3 vertical boxes. That corresponds to the pictured middle, vertical row of the C – E – G triad. On the 3 x 3 number square, that relates to 9-5-1. The Second Temple was built to include the entire nine-boxed tick tack toe board. The 2nd temple extends the dimensions of the 1st to the left and right of 9-5-1. The First Temple was 60 x 20 cubits. According to the Tanach (Hebrew for Bible), he 2nd temple becomes 60 x 60 cubits.
Judaism and much of the beliefs of sacred antiquity springs from this 3 x 3 board. It becomes apparent when the boxes are filled with numbers one to nine arranged so that any row of three totals 15. These 9 boxes, in a parallel way can also hold the 9 tones of the primary triads that define a key.The triad trinity is named (Vertically left to right) tonic, dominant and sub dominant. In the key of “C”, the tonic is C-E-G. It rests on the central vertical row of the number square pictured below. Thus:
The triple-boxed shape of the 1st Temple is likened to the middle 9-5-1 row of the 3 x 3 square.
The dominant of G-B-D occupies the same position as the 2-7-6 to the right.
The sub-dominant of F-A-C. occupies the same position as 4-3-8 to the left.
When used in combination, a triad trinity can be seen as outlining the boundaries of the 2nd Temple. They also define the primary triads of C major. The grid can hold the three primary triads of any key signature. These three key defining triads comprise 9 tones altogether.
Triad Trinity is, Top to Bottom and Vertically Left to Right- Sub Dominant, Tonic, Dominant
So Where else in the Grid Do We Find the Concept of Musical Temples?
The same grid that was the foundation of the two Jerusalem Temples sets the basic diatonic musical interval of the fifth by vibrations per second. They are A-440 and E- 660. Take the numbers two at the time. Go around the perimeter either way. Here is how to find the A-440: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. Here is how to find the E- 660. You get the same sum either vertically or horizontally. (49 + 35 + 81) + reversed as 94 + 53 + 18) + from the other side: (29 + 75 + 61) + and again reversed (92 + 57 +16) = 660.
The basic musical interval from which ancient and modern musical systems is the musical 5th. Our more modern music uses key signatures of the Circle of Fifths. Ancient music used individual tones derived by the actual fifth. The key or core number of the 3 x 3 number square is 5. Any other number placed in the center destroys its symmetry. This is the basis of its sacred order.
So How Did I Discover This Approach to the Trinity of Triads?
There is an American Indian spiritual presence on Oquaga Lake in the Catskill Mountains. For years I had been the piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. This spirit would accompany me on walks in wilderness. I call on it by the name of the Oquaga Spirit. On my product page of DSOworks I have some 80 of her poems. It is called, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. I also have a free thumbnail of me reading the spirit’s poetry. It is on the front page.Here is a sample couplet: If it’s life you wish to live and enjoy to the marrow, then get thee a walking stick and hear the morning sparrow.
Octahedron Unifies Space Time in Ancient Cultures. It does so from an Earthly viewpoint. First of all, what is an octahedron? It is one of the 5 regular polyhedrons. The other 4 are the tetrahedon, icosahedron, cube and dodecahedron. However you view any one of them, it is totally symmetrical. . Together they are also called the Five Platonic Solids. How is the octahedron identified? By its number corners, edges and faces. It has the following:
These total 26 topological features. See the featured picture above
The octahedron has a non- identical twin brother (or sister). It is called a cube. They don’t look alike. But consider this. The cube has:
The twelve edges are the same in both. Whereas, the number of faces and corners trade places. They are as closely connected as twins. The octahedron pictured below contains a cube. The 6 corners of the octahedron have their points touching the center on the 6 faces of the cube. For that reason, they are called dual polyhedrons.
So How is it That the Octahedron Unifies Space Time?
Unfortunately, the Egyptian Library at Alexandria was burned down. Its wisdom describing prehistory was destroyed. Both the cube and octahedron were considered to be harmonious figures. This thought actually goes back to at least 11,000 B.C. Why harmonious? Because of the numerical relationship of its topology.
12 is one-third greater than 8
6 is one-third less than 8.
Eight is the number that defines the musical octave. That is the most harmonious and fundamental overtone of the entire overtone series. Guy Murchie thoroughly explains this in his two volumes of The Music of the Spheres.
How Does This Knowledge Date Back to Prehistoric Times?
The holiest sites of antiquity were designed as cubes or square base pyramids. The square base upright pyramid is found in the top half of the octahedron. Although the bottom half is not there, it is implied. As a cube, the Biblical Holy of Holies was set in back third of Solomon’s Temple. The total rectangular perimeter of the temple was 60 x 20 cubits. The 20 x 20 cubit back third becomes cubic. Also, the Ka-aba in Arabic literally means, cube.
Much of the world order of antiquity was destroyed. The cause was invaders from Afghanistan. The invaders were called Kurgans. Riane Eisler discusses this her The Chalice and the Blade.
What was the purpose of these Holy Sites? – To spread harmony and peace throughout the world. This was effected by their geometric harmony. Since many were destroyed, war has ensued. In unity we find peace. In division we find war. The octahedron unifies space time. It defines space as a geometric form. How does it define time? Each vertex of the regular triangles holds 60°. The 4 upper triangles of the octahedron have a total of 12 vertices. 12 x 60° = 720°. The lower 4 triangles total 12 vertices. They also total 720°. The upper 4 triangles represent the 720 minutes in 12 hours of daytime at the equinox. The lower 4 triangles represent 720 minutes contained in 12 hours of nighttime also marked by the equinox.
Conclusion: Look for harmonious models. Base civilization on these models. Peace follows. The ancients did in through geometry. The same can also help us today.
Irish Mile and Landscape Come Together. First, let’s define terms.
What is an Irish mile? An Irish mile measures 6,720 feet. This is listed in Ancient Metrology by John Michell.
Where does the 6.720 foot Irish mile stem from? At one time this was common knowledge. I redicovered it on Oquaga Lake thanks to a spirit that dwells on and around the lake (picture below). She also dictated an entire book of poetry, It is called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, available on DSOworks.com For this blog I copy an excerpt from my last blog about the Welsh mile.
This is also a modern representation of the Lo Shu square as a magic square.
First, a quick review of the Welsh mile: Numbers of this square were typically divided into two sections. They were the corner of 4 numbers and the left over gnomon of 5 numbers. Different civilizations used different corners and gnomons. For the Welsh mile, remove the 4 number corner of 9,2,5 and 7. Then multiply the left over gnomon as 4 x 3 x 9 x 1 x 6 = 576. . For the tenfold number of 5760, a synthetic zero was added. I must first ask my reader to note, the square has no number 10. It consists only of the first nine digits. This is because 10 was a synthetic number: Any two of the opposite digits on the 3 x 3 square total 10. These include 4 + 6; 3 + 7; 2 + 8; and 9 + 1. Zero was not considered to be a freely existing number for that reason.This number as the Welsh mile was given measure by the English 12 inch foot. My source for the Welsh mile is Ancient Metrology by John Michell.
SO WHERE IS THE 5,760 FOOT LONG IRISH MILE?
Look to the same number square pictured above. We will just take different corner and gnomon. For the Irish mile, multiply the gnomon numbers 2 x 7 x 6 x 1 8 = 672. Again, like the Welsh mile, we add the synthetic zero. The coindicence of this gnomon/corner division goes even deeper for Ireland. The due East-West line through the center of Ireland neatly fits into the overall landscape of a pentagon . This is pictured in the book: Twelve Tribe Nations and the Science of Enchanting the Landscape. It is written by John Michell and Christone Rhone. Now once more back to our universally used Neolithic number square. Multiply the four corner numbers as 4 x 9 x 3 x 5 = 540. That states the number of degrees in a pentagon. Thus the following comes out of this particular gnomic/corner division: Not only the length of the Irish mile; but the shape of the pentagon employed that this mile measured.
I believe these re-discoveries will reinstitute a new vision for peace and harmony based on this common source for our sciences and arts. May the Oquaga Spirit be with you!
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.
