Space Came 1st -Time, 2nd -in the Ancient View. Antiquity was guided by number squares and their centers. a magic square is an square grid. “n” is the number of cells on each side. filled with distinct positive integers. Each cell contains a different integer whose in each row, column and diagonal is equal.Below are the primary squares. They range from 3 x 3 to 9 x 9. Higher number (magic) squares were also used. All oddly number squares have only one number at the center. Even centers have four numbers. Note that single numbers 5 and 13 are at the center of the 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 respectively. The even number square has 4 numbers at the center. They are 7.6.11 and 10. The odd numbered square of 5 x 5 again has only one number at the center. It is number 13. Thus, the 3 x 3 and 4 x 4 set the pattern. Higher number squares all repeat the pattern. The nature of number squares provides the key to how ancients analyzed space-time.
Time is cyclic and fourfold in nature. I explain this in the internal links below.
Space is at the core of reality. It is also infinite. The 3 x 3 magic square is central. Its opposite numbers always equal 10. These tens grow into infinity by a formula given in the internal link. Time is distinctly fourfold in nature. Fourfold is at the core of cycles which gives shape to time. See links above. The 4 x 4 number square of Jupiter sets this fourfold pattern for time. In the ancient view, since the 3 x 3 number square precedes the 4 x 4, space comes 1st.
Joyful -When Radiated By Anyone- Elevates Stature. This is to the highest levels. This blog will attempt to answer how and why. It ties into an ancient Middle Eastern concept called gematria. It refers to the sharing of a letter and number by the same symbol. Once there was no separate notation for letters and numbers. That is foreign to our current day thinking. In the Middle East it was common. Hebrew still illustrates this in the calendar:
Some words had the same numerical value. This is true with the two key Hebrew words: joy and Redeemer. Also, within a phrase, one (1) could be added without changing the essential numerical meaning. This was called the colel. This blog makes the point: Any happy person helps all mankind.This is true regardless of religion or nationality.
The two Hebrew words, joy and Messiah, both have a value of 353. The words are given below.
Original Word:מָשִׁ֫יחַ. This translates to the Redeemer, Messiah.
A Joyful Gematria
In addition to this 353 co-incidence, we’ll examine two more correspondences: In Greek gematria it specified Hermes. Key numbers were once shared by even different cultures. Read my 353rd blog. The link is given below.
Now for the ancient source of 353: It is hidden in a well known number code. Read the internal link below called 3 x 3 number square Archives.The code hides 1110: When 1110 becomes a circumference, then 353… becomes its diameter. At one time number squares structured civilization. They formulated a peaceful era.
Finally, 352 is the gematria of the two words that immediately precede Judaism’s most important prayer- Hear O Israel. Milk and honey are the last two words of Deut: 6:3. Hear O Israel are the first words of Deut. 6:4. These words in Deut. 6:3 are translated into as “milk and honey.” Read another internal link below. What does this mean? When the lost codes hidden in the 3 x 3 number square are activated, the lands will flow will “milk and honey.”
Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients. Lost civilizations assigned numbers to concepts. Inspiration and Imagination were once defined by number 1080. Author John Michell has written voluminously on this subject. His take expresses Einstein’s thoughts. However, his take is in terms of an Earth Spirit that encircles world.
For many it can be extremely difficult to distinguish between between the state of being inspired and uncontrolled imagination. I will relate it to an article in the New York Times. It is front page in the Arts & Leisure section. Date is Sunday June 10, 2018. Suffice it to say, aspiring can draw from imagination.
Inspiration Can Have Controlled and Uncontrolled Aspects
The New York Times article is entitled “Home is Where the Horror Is.” It talks about how in cinema today stating: Horror has never been more bankable and celebrated than it is now. Michell, in his City of Revelation, discusses the difference between being inspired and wild imagination. Basically, the number 1080 applies to both. Michell has an entire chapter on this number. He writes about how: “The mystic’s vision and the the lunatics nightmare derive from the same source.” Most important, he writes, “the individual alone is responsible for the different forms they assume.”
So What Causes the Lunatic’s Nightmare?
When 1080 takes on the lunatics nightmare aspect, there is a cause. It is usually a reaction against excessive power and brute force being used to solve problems. Tone down the brute force, and the lunatic’s nightmares will also lessen. This internal link below explains a little more about number 1080.
Mysterious Diameter Measure at the Hopewell Circle. The city’s name is derived from its original layout created in 1810. This was within the 1,100 ft diameter of a circle. The circle was a Hopewell tradition earthwork dating to the early centuries of the Common Era. The county courthouse was built in the center of the innermost circle. The circular outline was soon obliterated. By the late 1830s a group of citizens decided to changed the layout to a standard grid. This was accomplished by the mid-1850s. All traces of the Hopewell earthwork were destroyed. However, anyone with specific knowledge of the past can link the circle to prehistoric times. Conclusions are quite startling.
Mysterious Diameter Measure is Found in the Original Layout
I have a particular interest in Circleville. On June 2 2018 I gave a concert at the Circleville High School. The story of the concert is nothing short of miraculous. Shortly, a youtube video of the concert will be posted. Keep checking my posts for the link of the actual concert. Also, please read about the incredible story of the concert on the internal link below.
The question becomes: Why is 1100 feet a mysterious diameter measure? What profound secrets does it hold? Basically, its measure explains lost secrets from a former and now lost civilization.
A secret code in the diameter measure is to be found in the Hebraic Tree of Life.
It illustrates another secret code that is prominent on the 3 x 3 number square.
These secret codes can open the gates that lead to a Golden Age of Peace and Plenty.
Number Code on Tree of Life Hides the Mysterious Diameter Measure of 1100 by Number
So where is 1100 on the diagram to the immediate right? The numbered tree of life has three vertical pillars. Its numbers work in opposite polarities. They also work three at the time. Ancients attached their preferred units of measure to the numbers. The numbers were of key importance regardless of measure used. Thus on the Tree we have:
357 + 742 = 1100
Reverse the numbers. We still get 1100: 753 + 247 = 1100.
1100 is also Prominent on the Prime Number Square. Now we can go one step further into the past. Where did the hidden 1100 on the Tree come from? It came from an even more ancient square of numbers. It is also hidden. This time it is camouflaged in the prime 3 x 3 number number square. The Chinese call this square the Lo Shu. The Christians call it the Grain of Mustard Seed. Below is the standard depiction from antiquity:
Add the numbers two at the time. This is explained below. 660 and 440 will appear. Add these two numbers: 660 + 440 = 1100.
440 is another major characteristic number on the square. Here is just one way it uses 440: Add the numbers around the perimeter two as the time. Go either clockwise or counter clockwise. You get 440. For example: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. Try the other way.
. The Hopewell tradition refers to the common aspects of the Native American culture. It flourished along rivers in the northeastern and midwestern United States. Years were from 200 BCE to 500 CE. The Hopewell tradition was not a single culture or society. It was a widely dispersed set of related populations. They were connected by a common network of trade routes. The routes were called the Hopewell Exchange System.
How far back can we trace the use of number squares? Was Plato correct in his relating the story of Atlantis? Are the American Indians the long lost tribes of Israel? The point is: Every question, when answered, simply raises more questions. Keep checking DSOworks.com. More events and posts will be in the making.
Four Tiered Spiral Holds the Ages of Mankind. This blog is about the spiral and time. My last post was about the circle and time. A number of Greek philosophers thought the circular theory held sway over the spiral. My post specifically mentions these thinkers. Here is the internal link to the circle post: Defining Time in Antiquity- was thought of as Circular or as a spiral? A number of other cultures used the model of the spiral to explain time. The 1st example is the Hindu. Here is the four tiered spiral. The overall cycle was 12,000 years. It was called the Mahaijuga cycle. Here is the breakdown within the full cycle: Krta yuga is the 1st stage. It lasts 4,000 years. The 2nd age is called Treta yuga. It lasts 3,000 years. Stage number three of the Dwarpara yuga. It lasts 2,000 years. Finally comes is the Kali yuga. It predictably lasts 1,000 years. Between each pair of these well defined cycles are a twilight and a dawn. Simply doing the math we see that the four cycles only add up to 10,000 years. A twilight a and dawn on either side of each cycle adds the remaining 2,000 years. The four tiered spiral also appears in many Mediterranean cultures. They are referenced in the featured picture. First comes the The Golden Age is the only age that falls within the rule of Cronus. Peace and harmony prevailed. Humans did not have to work to feed themselves: The earth provided food in abundance. They lived to a very old age. They were also blessed with youthful appearance and eventually died peacefully. During the silver men refused to worship the gods and Zeus destroyed them for their impiety. In the bronze age men were undone by their own violent ways. they dwelt in the “dank house of Hades“. This Age came to an end with the flood of Deucalion. Finally comes the iron age. During this age might makes right, and bad men use lies to be thought good. Humans no longer feel shame or indignation at wrongdoing.
The Four Tiered Spiral Stems from the 4 x 4 number square
The center of the 4 x 4 number square is the 1st square, in order of size, that has four numbers at the center. Genesis 1:1 expressively calls this square for Creation. Genesis replete with its use of number squares. Click on links to find out how.
Defining Time in Antiquity- is it Circular or a Spiral? Is time a progression? As a spiral, time is not repetitive. In this blog we will consider the circular view of time: As a circle, time would return to the same point. Gnosis and Time by Henri-Charles Puech sheds some light on ancient attitudes. He discusses how Greeks abstracted the circle from time. Here is their view: If time is circular, it remains identical with itself. It becomes eternal and immutable. Greeks thought of change and movement as inferior degrees of reality. In defining time they sought “permanence, perpetuity and re-occurrence”. Circlular movement assures the continuation of the same things through repetition. As such, continuous return was at the summit of preference. Plato had a source that defined time. Her claimed it was measured by the revolution of the celestial spheres. These spheres became the moving image of immobile eternity. Hence everything was generated and decayed in circular fashion. Overall, whatever is created is kept and never lost. Pythagoreans, Stoics and Platonists believed: Within the cycles of time the same situations occur over and over. Nothing is unique. Everything is created but once. Cosmic time is both repetition and eternal time. Here is Wikipedia’s take on time: Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events. It occurs, apparently, in irreversible succession. It goes from the past. Then progresses through the present. Finally, we have the last stage, the future.[3 Click on this internal link that follows. It offers proof of a type of internet thousands of years ago. Ancient internet took the form of number squares. A number of my blogs illustrate how defining features of time, as we know it, came from number squares. This is especially true of the 3 x 3 number square. It is the simplest; and yet, the most complex. Internet is the Keyword in Megalitic Times – DSO Works.
The flow of sand in an hourglass: This devise can be used to measure passing time. It also concretely represents the present as being between the past and the future. The passing present is the narrow part in between. The future is represented by the sand in oval glass on top. The past becomes the spent sand on the bottom. Then the glass is simply turned around and the cycle repeats. The concept of circular time held sway for many years. A big advantage of the hourglass: It visually depicts time in these 3 stages and how they can reoccur.
Sit Thomas Brown believed: The lives, not only of men, but of Commonwealths, and the Whole World, run not upon a helix that still enlargeth, but on a circle. Wherein arriving to their meridian, they decline in obscurity. Then it falls under the horizon again. In a post to come, I will blog about time as a spiral.
Number squares are a key part of many ancient religions. The basic number square was 3² + 4² = 5². The “octave” (numbers doubled) expression becomes 6² + 8² = 10².
Judaism, Through Number Squares, Call on Love. Compassion and Kindness
Here is but one example of how Judaism uses number squares. Many religions also use them. In ancient languages letters and numbers shared the same symbol. This was called by a Greek name, gematria. Judaism calls on the qualities in the above heading through the first 12 Hebrew words of the most sacred and key prayer: The Shema Yisroel.
Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One. Blessed be his glorious kingdom forever and forever.
בָּרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.
Now, refer to picture of Tree of Life above. Those who have been reading the blogs on DSOworks.com already know how ancients had the same symbol for both numbers and words. The formula for figuring out the sum any row of numbers on a number square (as per Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan) is the sum of the numbers in any row, cubed + plus the total number of numbers in that row, then divided by two. This is found in Kaplan’s Meditation and Kabbalah, p.163.
“Love” invokes the 13 x 13 number square Thus, the characteristic number of Chesed-Love is 13 x 13 x 13+ 13/ 2 = 1105. The first 6 words of the Shema total 1106, as spelled above. One was allowed for the presence of the Blessed Name.
The characteristic number of Netzach-Victory is 2465. As 17 x 17 x 17 + 17/ 2 = 2465. The total of the entire 12 words of the Shema is 2464. Again one is allowed, by tradition of colel, for the presence of the Blessed Name.
Ancient Divine Path is also Found by Using the 6, 8, 10 Right Triangle
The ancient divine path is all about number squares. When realized, finding the way to emanation #1 comes with a map. Here is the equation: 8² + 6² = 10². The journey requires intense effort. That is the essence of squaring numbers.
We start the journey from Hod (8) -pictured above. We must bend from the path on the left pillar of severity (pillar defined by 8,5, and 3). Then travel in the direction of mercy on the right. If we don’t make the effort, trouble comes from being harsh and severe.
Mercy, on the other hand, is found to the right on the tree. From emanation 8, on the left, we must travel toward emanation 6 (Tifereth).
As pilgrims in search of love, mercy and compassion, we are then able to travel straight up to emanation #1.
When we learn to become kind and forgiving, we bend away from rigid severity on the left. We can embrace mercy. In this way we can finally be at one with our Creator. The Pythagorean equation”: has meaning on many levels. It is coded by number squares and by emanations of the Tree of Life.
Fibonacci Forgot the Number Squares. First, what are the Fibonacci numbers? The Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers in mathematics named after Leonardo of Pisa. Fibonacci wrote a book in 1202, called Liber Abaci (“Book of Calculation”). He introduced the number pattern to Western European mathematics. Mathematicians in India already knew of it.
Here we start with #1.This is because zero was not considered a number in the remote past. In the more modern series, number one repeats. Each number after that is equal to adding the two numbers right before it together. For example, 1 + 1=2. Then 1 + 2 = 3. Next, 2 + 3 =5. Next, 3 + 5 = 8. This sequence can go on forever. Note: Five breaks the consecutive number series of 1,2,3. It skips number “4”. Therefore, I call five the 1st distinct Fibonacci number. It is also the first central number of the 1st number square of the series. It sits at the center of the 3 x 3 number square.
A Fibonacci spiral created by drawing a line through the squares in the Fibonacci tiling. This one uses squares of sizes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34; see Golden spiral.
What Fibonacci Forgot is Key to Understanding
We just mentioned the centrality of #5 in number squares. Number 13 is at the center of the 5 x 5 square. All evenly numbered squares have 4 numbers at the center. The 4 x 4 square is the 1st such square. Its 4 numbers of 7,6,10 and 11 total 34. This is yet another Fibonacci number that comes from the heart of number squares. The most remarkable is the 3 x 3 number square. It actually frames the infinite Fibonacci series by using repeated fives. Many blogs on DSOworks.com are about this very topic. Here are just two internal links.
Advanced Science Used Number Squares in B .C. Today, periodic charts are in vogue. Number square, I believe, were used in the past. Perhaps they are even more revealing than the periodic chart? My internal link below puts forth Neolithic possibilities. In the link, I explain how such knowledge was possibly the remnant of a lost civilization. Yes, Atlantis is in the running. Whatever the event, it is lost from collective memory. However, number squares are the survivors. Their application has been lost. Many blogs on DSOworks are about reactivating these squares. The most intriguing is the smallest number square. I believe the gospels were referring to this number square. It is 3 x 3. This is because if you know its secret codes, it becomes gigantic.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed is one of the shorter parables of Jesus. It appears in Matthew (13:31–32), Mark (4:30–32), and Luke (13:18–19). In the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, it is immediately followed by the Parable of the Leaven, which shares this parable’s theme of the Kingdom of Heaven growing from small beginnings. It also appears in the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas (verse 20).
Advanced Science is Hinted at by Biblical Parables
Sometimes in our quest for knowledge for advanced science, we can be blinded by a light that is too bright. The bright light of the periodic chart is such a light. The table was published by Dmitri Mendeleev. The year was 1869. He built upon earlier discoveries Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier and John Newlands.
On the featured picture please notice:
The charactertistic number is what any two opposite numbers total. Any two opposite numbers on the 9 x9 square above total 82. This number number square of the Moon defines the atomic number of the ash of nuclear fission. That is lead-82.
The characteristic number on the 5 x 5 number square is 26. Iron has a 26 atomic number. Iron defines the limits of nuclear fusion on stars. When enough iron is fused at the core of a star, the star explodes. That is what creates the heavier elements.
Much has been overlooked on the periodic chart. This is because it ignores ancient number squares. I think that placing number squares into fresh focus can initiate a new Golden Age of peace and plenty.
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
Quote from the Spirit’s Poem, Rustle, Rustle, Rustle Goes the Wind:
Open the windows of you mind
To let the summer breezes through.
Then the scented summer wind
Will swoosh by to renew you.
In the 1980’s she preferred iambic pentameter in quatrains.
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.
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.
Below is an internal link to a poem entitled “Future Fog”.
$7.99 Oquaga Lake is located up the mountain from Deposit, NY in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains just across the border to Pennsylvania. This spring-fed lake is rated one of the cleanest in New York State. At points it’s over 150 feet deep. The lake’s diameter is about a mile across. Overall, its outline resembles a bear.
