Balanced Measurement Historically by Fives and Sixes. I know. You are thinking the title is beyond logic. “Five and six what”, you ask? A quick response: Words favor the left side of the brain. Left-sided thinking dominates most of our culture. Math and music use the right side. That’s where this blog is coming from- the right side. I refer you to chapter six of The City of Revelation. Michell entitles the chapter- ” Sacred Geometry: The Plan of the Holy City.” In that chapter we find Mayananda’s drawing of a lily and rose. At one time the rose and lily were thought to be polar opposites. Here are some of his included highlights:
Five represents the strong petals of the rose. It has 13 weaker petals.
Six represents the petals of a lily.
Five has historically been the number of humanity. It is the core number of the ratio called “phi”.  It favors ratios of life including those found throughout the human frame.
Six was associated with inanimate nature, like the snowflake.
Five was the footprint of the pentagon.
Six was the mark of the hexagon
Thus. five was considered yin. Six was thought of as yang.
So Where are the Ancient balanced Measurement Units?
Below is a list of balanced measurement units used in antiquity:
6/5 = 1.2 An Egyptian remen is 1.2165 feet (It gets better in a moment).
6 x 5/6 + 5 = 2.727272…A megalithic yard is 2.72 feet.
6 x 6 x 6/5 x 5 x 5 = 1.728. The larger Egyptian cubit is 1.728 feet.
6²/5² – 1.44. One hundred and forty four is a Fibonacci number.
6 x 6 x 6 x 6 / 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 2.0736. Approximates the Palestinian cubit of 2.107 feet.
(6 to the 6th power) / (5 to the sixth power) = 2.979…This is close to the three feet of the English yard.
Very important for Central America and the Mexican Pyramid of the Sun: The key unit of measure was the “hunab.” (See Peter Tompkins Mysteries of the Mexican Pyramids). The hunab is 3.41 feet. Again, the invaluable fives and sixes: (5 x 5 x 5) + (6 x 6 x 6) = 341. I took this information from a previous blog called “Measure Proves a Pre Genesis Citadel in Mexico.”
341 refers to world before Genesis. Here’s how: The name of the pre-creation God was Emesh אֶ֣מֶשׁ: “Laban said unto Jacob: The God of your fathers, Emesh, said to me…” In Hebrew “Emesh” literally means “yesternight.” Reference Genesis (31:29). Letters doubled as numbers in middle eastern languages. There were no separate numbers apart from letters. Here are the letters in Hebrew with their representative numbers.
אֶ֣מֶשׁ – Alef = 1; Mem = 40; shin = 300. Total is 341.
אֶ֣מֶשׁ- The three Hebrew letters of Emesh are the the “mother” of all the Hebrew letters. This total is merely another fusion of fives and sixes. In the Hebrew language these three letters are the classification heading for the the remaining 19 letters.
Conclusion: A rose and a lily are easy for all to enjoy. Also numbers 5 and 6 are easy to understand. But we need to know what this meant to the ancient, even pre-Genesis civilizations. This blog is merely a glimpse into the mindset of those who knew of this in antiquity.
Many Ways to arrive at same conclusions or destinations. We have an analogy by way of the featured picture. There’s more than one route that flies into Denver or LA. I have been making a case for the Neolithic use of number squares. This is one of the themes on DSOworks.com. Such knowledge was shared by many seemingly diverse civilizations: Jericho, Troy, Lepenski Vir- are examples that I’ve blogged about.
The hidden codes found in the 3 x 3 number square are the most prominent in lost civilizations. This was explained to me by an American Indian spirit. Her tribe was the Lennie Lenape. The tribe was matriarchal. It had set up encampment around Oquaga Lake.
This blog will parallel numbers of the scripture in Isaiah 40:3-5 and the 3 x 3 number square. Afterwards, I will explain how one of the hidden codes that measured lost civilizations appears when you erase the grid lines of the tic-tack-toe board. This was spoken to me by the Indian spirit:
First, look at the square of numbers. It is pictured below with the lines. Forty totals the eight numbers around central five. These 8 are called the perimeter. Their sum is 40. This is the chapter number in Isaiah.
The verses are 3-5. The central number of the square is 5. The entire square is referred to 3 x 3.
The Holy Ark also uses 5 and 3 numbers by ratio: The construction of the Ark is commanded by God to Moses while the Jews were still camped at Sinai (Ex. 25:10-22; 37:1-9). The Ark was a box with the dimensions of two-and-a-half cubits in length (5/2) , by one-and-a-half cubits in height(3/2), by one-and-a-half cubits in width(3/2).
Many Ways Happen Start to Happen when you Eliminate the 2 Horizontal and 2 Vertical Lines
Each set of 3 numbers with its opposite 3 always total 1,110. Examples: 492 + 618 = 1110 Another: 834 + 276 = 1110. Any 3 numbers that uses number 5 as its central number is its own 1,110 number when added backwards. Examples include 951 + 159 = 1110. Or, 357 + 753 = 1110.
Where is 1,110 found? At the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Among the many ways are the perimeter of the 4 sides of its square base totaling 1110 megalithic yards.
Many Ways on the Smallest Number Square
Isaiah 40: 3-5…..The crooked places shall be made straight. These words work the code as just explained.
Isaiah 40:3-5 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert[a] A highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; 5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Roses Contain Mysteries and are Favored by Mystics. First, consider the visible side of roses. Leaves on the bushes come in clusters. These clusters can be comprised of 3,5 or 7 leaves. It has been proven that:”If you want the rose bush to keep blooming, cut the branches between clusters of five and three leaves.” For the roses to continuously blossom, they must be cut between the Fibonacci numbers 3 and 5. Also significant for this blog: The rose has 5 strong petals and 13 weaker. Now the mysticism begins. The background for this blog is the preference that Neolithic cultures showed for number squares.
ROSES CONTAIN MYSTERIES THAT APPLY TO NUMBER SQUARES
Here are the two number squares that the rose draws on. Neolithic cultures knew that nature works on these squares. Today, many have yet to realize this. The 5 strong petals and 13 weaker draw on the key central numbers of 3 x 3 and 5 x 5. The core number of the 3 x 3 is #5. The core number of the 5 x 5 square is #13.
Fibonacci Series Shares the Key Numbers With Roses
Fibonacci numbers grow numbers grow by adding the two previous numbers to arrive at the next larger number. We thus find: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,34…….The series can continue infinitely.Life both favors and significantly uses the ratio of these consecutive numbers. Note: The Fibonacci numbers that form the petals of the rose: 5 and 13. As the series develops, the ratio of the by which the larger of the two is greater than the smaller gets closer and closer to the infinite number of phi: 1.618… That number is called by the Greek word, phi, or the Golden Section. The definitive phi number can never be reached. It is an irrational number that extends to infinity. Could that be why man will always fall short of immortality?
ANOTHER BIG ROSE CO-INCIDENCE
Consider the following about roses contain mysteries: I have already blogged extensively about these bullet points below . Both 5 and 13 define the strong petals on a rose. Both 5 and 13 define the core of the 1st two odd numbered squares as pictured above. The co-incidence extends to regular and semi-regular polyhedrons:
There can only be 5 regular polyhedrons.
There can only be 13 semi-regular polyhedrons.
The knowledge of many of prehistoric civilizations was also preserved by planting roses in Jerusalem. This knowledge today calls for a new vision of peace and co-operation. Let roses lead the way. Hooray for flower power!
Phi Tie is Like Tied Musical Notes Crossing Many Measures. Mathematicians since Euclid have studied the properties of the golden ratio, including its appearance in the dimensions of a regular pentagon and in a golden rectangle, which may be cut into a square and a smaller rectangle with the same aspect ratio. The golden ratio has also been used to analyze the proportions of natural objects as well as man-made systems such as financial markets.
There was once a Golden Age. It was maintained by a mathematical code. The code has been hidden from most for millennium. On appearance, it is strikingly simple. On the featured number square, we have the following:
Any straight row of 3 numbers totals 15.
Any opposite two numbers totals 10.
The 8 perimeter numbers total 40.
The central number is 5.
This featured number square shows the traditional arrangement of the numbers. There are other solutions. The only rules used in diagramming the number square is that; (1) Even numbers must occupy the four corners. (2) Odd numbers must be placed in between the even numbers. (3) The mathematical totals must be the same as those given above.
So Where is the Phi Tie?
For this blog I will just show the obvious one. It is taken as a straight read across the bottom three numbers of the featured picture, from right to left. This code goes back to antiquity. Remember, Hebrew and many ancient languages were read from right to left. These civilizations would prefer the featured picture arrangement of the numbers.That exactly duplicates the first three numbers given as the quotient in the phi formula above: .6180… In antiquity zero was not considered a number on its own. It was a synthetic number. As just mentioned: Any opposite two numbers totals ten. Primary numbers from 1 to 9 were given their own special place of honor on the square.
For those wishing to know about the hidden codes that I discovered and the story that goes with it, go to DSOworks.com and type in “phi”.
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 yudי 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:
The siddur (prayer book) spelling with the double “yud” represents a diameter crossing a circle. Its total is 1106.
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.
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. 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?
Leader 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.
Jupiter Offers – so where are 13 and 21 in the 4 x 4 number square?
The 4 x 4 number square hides the numbers of a special group of numbers. It is called the Fibonacci series. The numbers are set. The graph above starts the series. Numbers grow by successive addition. In the Fibonacci series we have 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,34…Of course the series continues to infinity. Life favors the ratio of any two consecutive numbers. As the series develops, the ratio gets closer and closer to 1.618… That number is called by the Greek word, phi, or the Golden Section. A definitive phi number can never be exactly reached. It is an irrational number that extends to infinity. Could that be why man will always fall short of immortality?
Back to the 4 x 4 Number Square
Look at the numbers vertically two at the time: 16 + 5 = 21. Underneath, 9 + 4 = 13. Next, 3 + 10 = 13. Then, 13 + 8 = 21. Next 12 + 1 =13 etc,.The entire square is filled with Fibonacci numbers 13 and 21. . Be assured that our Neolithic ancestors knew everything that you are now reading about.
They also knew that: (1) The potentiality of the entire number square is dormant in the central four numbers. Here’s how: Cross multiply the central four numbers. Then add the two products as follows: (10 x 7) + (6 x 11) = 136. (2) The 4 x 4 number square uses the numbers 1 through 16. Add these numbers. Their sum is 136. That is the same as the cross multiplication products and their sums just given. Not only does this number square of Jupiter evoke infinite potential for growth, but it also harbors within its central four numbers the potentiality for that growth. Our ancestors tapped into this knowledge.
The square was understood at least 11,000 years ago. Number squares played a large part in lost and forgotten civilizations right here on planet Earth. That’s one of the major themes of our DSOworks.com website. Music is its main theme. I believe that a peaceful civilization can be restored by the study of music and by revitalizing lost knowledge.
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. 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). 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.
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:
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.
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:
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 inChapter 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 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
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. 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.
Peaceful Training was on Oquaga Lake
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. That became my 1st book of Oquaga Lake poetry, entitled, The Book of Balance. Later the spirit used triple meter with rhyme shaped by quatrains. The the result of the triple meter book is The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. It is available as a product on DSOworks.com.
Peaceful Training as per The Oquaga Spirit
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 requires 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 paradise for all, and yet. possible.
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 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.
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!
