Revealing Lost Secrets is Sometimes a Matter of Simply Geometry

Revealing Lost Secrets of Prehistoric Times

Revealing Lost Secrets of Prehistoric Times. The key to deciphering many ancient mysteries starts with a circle and its diameter. The diameter must have a special measure. By number it is 352. The circumference around 352 becomes 1106. By equation, 352 x π = 1105.840614… Rounded up this becomes 1106. From the featured picture, we then construct the image pictured immediately below. Incidentally, it is not a co-incidence the ancient diatonic scale, the tone “F”  vibrated 352 x per second. Ancient, neolithic architecture used the numbers of vibrations per second of the diatonic scale to measure sacred sites. Read more free blogs on DSOworks.com.

Every Neolithic sacred site builder started with the pictured diagram below in hand. It has also been preserved for safe keeping in Deuteronomy. One of the most significant verses is Deuteronomy 6:4, the Shema Yisrael, which has become the definitive statement of Jewish identity: “Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God, the LORD is one.” Verses 6:4–5 were also quoted by Jesus in Mark 12:28–34 as part of the Great Commandment.

Revealing Lost Secrets  –  Answers Found In Deuteronomy 6:3-4

Revealing lost secrets of how “Milk and Honey” as the last words of Deuteronomy 6:3 by gematria is  352. This becomes the diameter of 1106 numerical value the 6 most sacred words in Judaism: In the Hebrew prayer book, called the Siddur.  In the Siddur, the Divine name is spelled with a double yud  י י‎)‎ ).  The double yud then occurs twice in the first six words of Deuteronomy 6:4. (see featured picture).  The gematria of the 6 words (with the double yud spelling of the Divinity) becomes 1106.

In the actual scroll of the Torah (as opposed to the Siddur) the 4 letter tetragrammaton is used יהוה)  ), not the double yud. That adds letters and numerical value. The six word numerical  sum of  Deuteronomy 6:4  with the 4 letter name becomes 1,118. That expresses a different aspect of geometry: It is, the measure of a a diagonal of a square that bisects the opposite side of the square.  This “half diagonal” is longer than any side of the square by 1.118. Looking at the two spelling of the Creator’s  name we then have the following:

  1. The siddur (prayer book)  spelling with the double “yud” represents a diameter crossing a circle. Its total is 1106.
  2. The Torah spelling of the 4 letter name represents the ratio by which a half diagonal is longer than any side of a square. Its total is 1118. See picture below.
  3. In light of this blog, the “squaring the circle” takes on yet another meaning.  The square and circle in this blog duplicate function of the two primary Masonic instruments: the square and the compass.

Jupiter Offers Square Deal and Then Some

Jupiter Offers Square Deal and Then Some

Jupiter Offers Square Deal and Then Some.  The word Jupiter translates to Jovial King. Jovial, according to Webster, is  characterized by hearty, joyous humor. We all need this influence in our lives. The question becomes, how did Jupiter acquire this meaning? And, what can we do to become more hearty and joyous in this trying day and age?

JupiterJupiterJupiterΖεύς (Zeus)गुरु, बृहस्पती (Guru, Brihaspati)ancientLeader of the Olympian Gods; Jupiter means “Jovial King” and/or “Father of Thunder”.

Answer to Jupiter Offers Square Deal lies in its magnificent number square of antiquity

Every planet had its own number square. This squares were used to invoke the influence of their particular planet. Jupiter’s was 4 x 4. Below is the traditional arrangement. It hides a special code of numbers. This was called the Fibonacci series. Numbers are pictured and described below.

Grand Poetic Revival is Just Around the Corner!

Grand Poetic Revival is Just Around the Corner! That’s remarkable. Poetry has been hiding for centuries. For example, most Chinese believe that the last time poetry peaked was in the Tang Dynasty.  That ended more than 1100 years ago.   The Golden Age of Russian Poetry is the name traditionally applied by Russian philologists to the first half of the 19th century.[1] It is also called the Age of Pushkin, after its most significant poet (in Nabokov‘s words, the greatest poet this world was blessed with since the time of Shakespeare[2]).  The history of American poetry is also  in rough shape. One example: American poetry published between 1910 and 1945 remains lost in the pages of small circulation political periodicals, particularly the ones on the left, destroyed by librarians during the 1950s McCarthy era.[2] 

Grand Poetic Revival
Russian Poet Alexander Pushkin. 1827. Oil on canvas

So How is A Grand Poetic Revival Just Around the Corner?

Issac Newton stated that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Poetry is a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to prose. The second body (poetry) is about to react contrary  to action first body. Given Newton’s Laws (1687), poetry should become popular for a  minimum of a few hundred years:  Note his third law:

Third law:When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body. The three laws of motion were first compiled by Isaac Newton in his Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy), first published in 1687.[4]

A greater percentage of prose has degenerated to colorless “information.” Poetic techniques have flown out of the window with computer technology. Original analogy has all but disappeared. Those that are around are terribly overworked. In my opinion, the worse of the uncolorful current bunch is the word “issues.” To paraphrase Shakespeare, “issues” has “died a thousand deaths.”

I’ve written a book of poetry called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. After memorizing and practicing reciting the entire book, I am ready to tour. I hope the Oquaga Spirit will be the  herald a new and peaceful age. In the words of the Oquaga Spirit:

We live in an age of information
Well, information is fog.
Incite burns it away
So truth we are able to log.

Found Egyptian Remen in a simple number square.

Egyptian Remen Source is a Simple Number Square

Egyptian Remen Source is a Simple Number Square. The Egyptian remen of 1.2165 feet is the basis of a long line of ancient measures. Measures are related to the remen by the square root of simple whole numbers. John Michell explores this in great depth in his City of Revelation. It is in Chapter 10, The Canon of Measures. The best known are

(1)  1.72 foot Egyptian royal cubit.
(2)  The basic  1.2165 foot Egyptian remen.
(3) What is new is my own discovery at Blue Stone Mountain: How the remen ties into the 3 x 3 number square.

Found Egyptian Remen
At one point I led expeditions to ancient sites. This is one of the sheets that went with me for lecturing.

 

Found Egyptian Remen Source is the Multi-Dimensional 3 x 3 Number Square

Most look at the 3 x 3 square and see it surrounded by 8 numbers. I was told to look at  the perimeter by single, double and triple numbers.  That totals 20 sets of numbers. Then the perimeters totals are 40, 440 and 2220 (see diagram above).  Let P1 stand for 40. P2 stand for 440. P3 stand for 2220. We take (P1 ) + (P2) + (P3) ÷ P3 = 1.2162…Quite close to the numbers in feet that comprise the remen of 1.2165. Within 3/10,000 of a foot!  The reason for exactly why this 1.2162… feet  was taken as 1.2165 feet is a matter for conjecture.

So what about the central number 5 from he number square? We haven’t accounted for it yet. Not only does the perimeter figure into ancient measures, so does central five. This is on 3 levels with the Great Pryramid:

  • The missing tip is 5 cubits in height.
  • 55 cubits defines the Egyptian Great cubit. It is the basis of measure of the Great Pyramid. Its base is 8 Great Cubits. The truncated height is 5 Great Cubits.
  • The blue print of the Great Pyramid is formed by two interlocking circles. They are drawn interlocking center to center. This is called the vesica piscis (vessel of the fish). The diameter of each circle is 555 feet. For those who think that this is insignificant or random, consider:  George Washington’s Monument in Washington D.C. makes use of the repeated “fives”. It is 555.5 feet tall.  File:Vesica piscis.png
  • File:Vesica piscis.svg

Why am I writing this blog? Because I sincerely believe that reactivating the 3 x 3 number square will bring about a new Golden Age of peace and plenty. The 3 x 3 number square shows what sciences and arts of man have in common. What we all share is the key to the Golden Age. Let’s open it together.

Peaceful training as per the Oquaga Spirit

Peaceful Training as per the Oquaga Spirit

Peaceful Training as per the Oquaga Spirit. With a wave of a wand, I become a poet. I’ve always just been a composer of music. However, at Oquaga Lake I met a spirit. She loves to dictate poetry to me. This happens no where else. The resort is in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. It is 25 miles East of Binghamton, New York. US-17 is the road that skirts the resort. Just drive straight up the slope for about 3.5 miles and you’re there. The Scott family have a huge presence on the lake. I have been in their employment for about 15 non-consecutive years. My first year was 1983. Eventually, the wisdom of the Oquaga Spirit as spoken  will be on this site. Here is one of her poems from that summer of ’83. That year she seemed to have preferred mostly iambic pentameter in quatrains. That translates to 5 beats per measure in groups of four lines. Later she used triple meter in rhyme and quatrains. The result of the triple meter is The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. It is available as a product on DSOworks.com.

 Peaceful Training

Training for a subject means following a system for mastery.
In sports that means specific and proven exercises
Diet must be regulated for strength and endurance.
Athletes need to partake of practice situations.

Playing a musical instrument requires training.
Various technical problems need to be overcome.
Tone production and theory are of great assistance.
Rehearsals are necessary to prepare for the concert.

Studying for an exam necessitates a systematic approach.
Facts should be reviewed on a regular basis.
Primary concepts should be learned before the secondary,
Lists of questions and answers are also helpful.

For nations, training for war has become routine.
People, time and resources are channeled into conflict.
Mankind has come to accept war as a fact of life.
We eat, drink, sleep, and go to war.

The way of war goes back to recorded history.
Even now we still send many to the slaughter of battle.
Should you ask: Is there really an alternative?
I would answer with a question, how many train for peace?

Training for peace also require diligence.
Departments of Defense and War have become the norm.
But you ask, isn’t war a part of human nature?
No, we always have a choice between the two?

It seems we’ve fallen in efforts for peaceful training;
Even though we have one such world organization.
Everyone knows of the United Nations in New York.
We can also to help peaceful efforts along:

Anyone can practice peace in daily dealings,
And remember the saying: “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”
Good deeds definitively promote the cause of peace.
Conclusion: Peace is easy going and yet accessible to all.

 

Randomness in Music With the 12 Tone Technique

Randomness of the 12 Tone Technique Applies to our Math

Randomness of the 12 Tone Technique Also Applies to our  math.  The initial proponent of this technique was Arnold Schoenberg (1874–1951), Austrian-American composer. The technique is a means of ensuring that all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are sounded as often as one another in a piece of music while preventing the emphasis of any one note[3] through the use of tone rows, orderings of the 12 pitch classes. All 12 notes are thus given more or less equal importance, and the music avoids being in a key.

Randomness of Music and Numbers

Our modern use of numbers parallels the 12 tone technique. The 12 tone technique is best described as willful randomness.  Antiquity thought of numbers one to nine as belonging to a system. It was called the 3 x 3 number square.  In our music that is set in the circle of fifths, this is called a key signature.  The numerical key signature of the ancients  was the vehicle of the number square. They favored 7 primary number squares. This could equate with 7 key signatures. The simplest and first was 3 x 3. Their favored squares ranged from 3 x 3  to 9 x 9. They did use higher numeric squares. However, the basic 7 were most common. Sacred prayers in Judaism coded higher number squares. Two favored ones were 13 x 13 and 17 x 17. I have blogs on this subject on DSOworks.com. Some 10,000 years ago, and maybe further back in time, all numbers belonged to unified systems. They were also connected  to words. For example, “order” could be 264. Each symbol of the ancients represented a letter and a number. There were no separate letters and numbers. Their unity called by a Greek name, gematria.  Look it up online. At one time there was no  randomness. You can sample ancient unity on the 3 x 3 number square picture below.

With the ancients, randomness is lacking.
Every number relates to the others in a meaningful way in the Neolithic times.
  • Any two opposite numbers around the perimeter total 10. Examples are 4 + 6= 10 ; 9 + 1 = 10; etc.
  • The average of any two opposite numbers around the perimeter is 5. Five is the core number.
  • Each number contributes to a perimeter whose total around #5 equals 40.
  • The total of all the numbers on the square is 45. . (That equals the sum of the  numbers  from 1 to 9).
  • Each number is set so that any row of three totals 15. This is true vertically, horizontally or diagonally.

The high level of organization of numbers in antiquity is staggering. Today, with our modern sciences, we totally lack such an organizing system for our numbers. I believe that result is  social conflict. The genius of Arnold Schoenberg made a powerful musical statement as to where our culture was heading. Let us return to the way of the ancients. Reviving number squares is what many of my blogs are about. Enjoy the illuminating sample of the 12 tone technique below!

 

 

Numerical nature of ancient mathematics

Numerical Nature of Ancient Philosophy is Number Squares

Numerical Nature of Ancient Philosophy is Number Squares. There are three varied approaches to ancient mathematics. Today we will only examine “real numbers.” Categories 2 and 3 will be future blogs.

  1. Use of “Real numbers” being numbers 1 – 9.
  2. Synthetic numbers being 10, 110, 1110, 11110.
  3. Repeated “real numbers” as 11, 22, 33…Or; 111, 222, 333…Also; 111,222,333…. to the nines.*

Numerical Nature of Ancient Philosophy is Found in the Phrase “To the nines.”

Lyrics from “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”. You won’t believe me, all you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she’s dressed up to the nines.

  • Evita (New Broadway Cast Recording)

 

My blog traces the history of “to the nines” to prehistoric times. Number squares were of prime importance. What set the concept and pattern of the number squares in motion was the smallest. It is referred to as the grain of mustard seed in the Bible. It uses the numbers one to nine. Nine becomes the maximum. Higher numbers are synthetic.  For example: Ten is the total of any two opposite numbers around the perimeter of the featured picture.  Examples are 9 + 1 or, 3 + 7. They combine two or more numbers in set patterns. Ten, in the distant past, did not exist as an independent number.  In musical terms repeated patterns on different tones is called a sequence. They musically demonstrate a property we will study in number squares.

J.S. Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, first movement, bars 22-24

 

The meaning of this ancient number square is revealed in the phrase Dressed to the nines.  But the history of nines is much older than this defining quote. Perhaps some 10,000 years older. *”To the nines” is an English idiom meaning “to perfection” or “to the highest degree” or to dress “buoyantly and high class”. In modern English usage, the phrase most commonly appears as “dressed to the nines” or “dressed up to the nines”.[1][2]The phrase “dressed to the nines” is just a specific application of the Scottish phrase “to the nine ” The earliest written evidence of this phrase appeared in the late 18th century in the poetry of Robert Burns. Its meaning is “to perfection; just right.

Mexican Sun Pyramid has a blueprint

Mexican Sun Pyramid Draws on Platonic Codes

Mexican Sun Pyramid Draws on Platonic Codes. Yes, there is an ancient temple plan. It dates back to Neolithic times. Plato used it. It was employed all around the world in antiquity. I discovered it in a vision while hiking around the loop by Oquaga Lake.  The same Ancient Temple Plan also graces the Mexican Sun Pyramid.  I discovered it by means a vision while hiking around Oquaga Lake. The special character of the lake nature is described in my book of poetry on DSOworks.com: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. It can be downloaded.

I was walking down the main road by Scott’s golf course when I had the insight that forms the basis of this blog.

Teotihuacán
 Pyramid of the  Sun (click to see picture source)

Coordinates: 19°41′33″N 98°50′37.68″W

Add the length of  the perimeters of the four  triangles ABC, ADC, ABD and CDB.  Each one totals 2520′ ( 738 + 738 + 1044 = 2520) .  Four triangles = 10,080. Next, use pi as 22/7. A circle around diameter of length 10,080 = 31,680.

Mexican Sun Pyramid Parallels Plato’s Writings

Plato’s Ideal City uses the same numbers in his desciption of the Ideal City.  He states in Laws V: “(1) Mark off 5040 allotments. They must be cut in two so that “each contains a near piece and a distant piece- joining the piece next to the city with the piece furthest off.”. That totals 10,080 markings of land (5040 on each side of the radius). That equals the total of the sum of perimeters around the 4 triangles of the Sun Pyramid as described above.  A circle drawn around diameter 10,080 has a circumference of 31,680 . As 10,080 x 22/7 = 31,680. The co-incidence goes even further. John Michell explains defines the area of each of its 2520 pairs of rings. The combined area of each of the pairs is 31,680. Both the Mexican Sun Pyramid and the Ideal City use the same number tradition of prehistory.  I refer my reader to The City of Revelation by John Michell pgs. 84-86

Conclusion: At one time there existed a peaceful formula for civilization. Due to some kind of cataclysm, everything was destroyed.  This possibility is discussed by Immanuel Velikovsky (/ˌvɛliˈkɒfski/; Russian: Иммануи́л Велико́вский; IPA: [ɪmənʊˈil vʲɪlʲɪˈkofskʲɪj]; 10 June [O.S. 29 May] 1895 – 17 November 1979) He was a Russian-Jewish independent scholar best known as the author of a number of controversial books reinterpreting the events of ancient history, in particular the US bestseller Worlds in Collision published in 1950.[1] Earlier, he played a role in the founding of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, and was a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.

Conclusion: I think that ancient ruins hold lost knowledge. Uncovering and understanding what’s in these ruins provides possible pathway way to peace. I think we are approaching another Golden Age. How good is that?

Hidden Heptagon is Found at the Great Pyramid of Egypt

Hidden Heptagon Found Attached to Great Pyramid’s Blueprint.

Hidden Heptagon  Can Be Attached to Great Pyramid’s Blueprint. Or, is it vice versa?  First, what is a heptagon?  In geometry, a heptagon is a seven-sided polygon or 7-gon. The heptagon is also occasionally referred to as the septagon, using “sept-” (an elision of septua-, a Latin-derived numerical prefix, rather than hepta-, a Greek-derived numerical prefix) together with the Greek suffix “-agon” meaning angle.

The featured picture is from my 1st volume, p.393, of The Staff of God. I worked many summer seasons at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House as their piano player. There, a spiritual presence made itself known. I was educated in the ways of the ancients. The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, was one of the results. It relates through quatrains with rhyme the character of this spirit. Here is a sample from the opening poem entitled The Oquaga Spirit:

What a communicator was she
This sprite both blithe and free.
So much she needed an ear,
She ignored my tranquility.

NOW FOR THE HIDDEN HEPTAGON

 

Hidden heptagon was relayed at Soptt's Oquaga Lake House.
Scott’s Oquaga Lake House promises and delivers a new and beautiful dimension.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To the best of my knowledge, I think I was one of the first to rediscover the hidden heptagon. Even more significant: I think the triangle of the Pyramid’s dimensions originally came from this hiding heptagon. Not the other way around. Every book I’ve seen previously has defined the triangle as giving birth to the Great Pyramid. This involved many geometrical constructions. Here’s the simpler way to draw its dimensions from the heptagon: Set your compass at point “C”, Mark its length AC. Mark point “D” from point “C”. Draw a straight line along ICBD. Connect lines for triangle CDA. You have the essential proportional measures of the Great Pyramid.

More blogs will be written on this topic. Here’s one application. Hebrew language has 3 “mother” letters. It also has 7 double letters. That is, letters with 2 distinct sounds.

  •  A 2nd heptagon can be drawn on the other side of the triangle (not pictured). It’s basic side is defined by line AC. It then extends to the left. The 1st heptagon is on the right.
  • The one mother that gives birth to the 2 heptagons wedged in the lower center between the 2 heptagons. .
  • With the Hebrew language, the 3 mother letters give birth to the 7 double letters. The diagram geometrically defines this pattern.

Possibility exists that I might go to the Lake House once more this summer. There I would recite poetry. Also I would offer expeditions to commune with the spirit, and play the piano.

This is a candidate for one of the ancient burial sites by its yin yang characteristics.

Ancient Burial Sites Used the Perfect Fifth Ratio 3/2

Ancient Burial Sites Used the Perfect Fifth Ratio 3/2. Many Neolithic cultures placed the numbers of harmonious ratios of musical intervals into their buildings and environment.   How can musical intervals possibly apply to burial sites? What was the purpose of seeking harmonious intervals for interment? Where and when did this happen?

  1. The tradition belongs to  yin-yang concept of the ancient Chinese
  2. The ideal was the 3/2 ratio. Three parts yang to 2 parts yin. 3/2 defines the musical interval of a perfect fifth. The higher note vibrates 3 times; for 2 of the lower.
  3. The tradition characterizes ancient burial sites in China. I found what I thought was such a location in Wiki commons. It is pictured as the ALMATY, KAZAKHSTAN. See featured pictured above.
    railroad tracks interrupted the yin yang flow of ancient Chinese burial sites
    The natural flow of yin yang was thought to be interrupted by railroad tracks.

    The fifth has always been considered a perfect interval. In Western music, intervals are most commonly differences between notes of a diatonic scale. The smallest of these intervals is a semitone. In music, an interval ratio is a ratio of the frequencies of the pitches in a musical interval. For example, a just perfect fifth (for example C to G) is 3:2. There are only 3 perfect intervals in our scale system. They are the octave, fourth and fifth. They are called perfect for the following reason: They vibrate in whole number ratios from 1 to 4. They sound the most harmonious. Major and minor intervals vibrate with higher number integers. Note the following list:

    • The interval between C and D is a major 2nd (major second).
    • The interval between C and E is a major 3rd (major third).
    • The interval between C and F is a perfect 4th (perfect fourth).
    • The interval between C and G is a perfect 5th (perfect fifth).
    • The interval between C and A is a major 6th (major sixth).
    • The interval between C and B is a major 7th (major seventh).
    • The interval between C and C is a perfect 8th (perfect octave).

    Ancient Burial Sites share the 3 to 2 Perfect 5th ratio with other disciplines

    (1) Microbiotic cooking  uses the 3/2 ratio for healing. It advocates 3 foods that grow above the ground in addition to 2 that grow under.
    (2) Chinese geomancers detect yang and yin currents. Yang is the blue dragon, Yin is the white tiger. Yang current takes the path over steep mountains. Yin mainly flows over chains of low    hills. Most favored is where 2 streams meet surrounded by three parts yang and 2 parts yin.  That was the spot where Chinese ancient burial sites were built.

    Chinese believed that proper burial of ancestors controlled the course  of the surviving family’s fortune. Great dynasties are said to have arisen from proper placement of tombs. Also, the 1st action of a government facing rebellion was to destroy the family burial grounds of the revolutionary leaders.

    If Ancient Burial Sites are Beyond You, Here’s a Simple Musical Exercise to Help Your Health and Fortune

    Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star incessantly uses the interval of the perfect fifth. So does Baa, Baa Black Sheep. Sing the first 4 notes of each. With both nursery rhymes, the interval between the 2nd and 3rd notes is a perfect  fifth. You have your choice: (1) Sing the first four notes over and over, Or (2) simply and just sing the 2nd and 3rd notes over and over.  Another choice is take piano lessons. Play Mozart.
