Sunken Cathedral Legend Parallels the Story of Atlantis

Sunken Cathedral Legend Parallels the Story of Atlantis Some stories and legends just refuse to go away. One is the story of the Sunken Cathedral. The other is the story of Atlantis. I find the following parallel you are about to read is quite remarkable: Fans of both the Sunken Cathedral and  Atlantis keep waiting for either or perhaps both  to rise from the depths of the Atlantic. The sunken cathedral inspired many composers and artists. Monet made the painting below of the Rouen Catherdral. It could well have inspired Claude Debussy to compose his prelude entitled  La Cathedrale engloutie.

Here is a strong parallel to the Atlantis story is the Sunken Cathedral

The cathedral of Ys rests on the mythical city-island of Ys, located by Brittany in France (also spelled Keris).  It daily rises from the ocean. Debussy’s music conveys the sounds that issue forth from the cathedral including bells chiming, priests chanting and its full-sized organ. The opening suggests church bells ringing in the distance and the clerics singing medieval chant. The middle section imitates the action of waves crashing on the cathedral. The story goes that the island was sunk by the Devil due to the rampant impiety on the island.  For this expression in music, Debussy includes a featured place for the interval of the augmented fourth. This interval was called by the church the diabolis in music (the devil in music).

Atlantis also Fell Out of Favor with the Dieties

Atlantis (Ancient GreekἈτλαντὶς νῆσος, “island of Atlas“) is a fictional island mentioned within an allegory on the hubris of nations in Plato‘s works Timaeus and Critias.  It represents the antagonist naval power that besieges “Ancient Athens”. Athens was the pseudo-historic embodiment of Plato’s ideal state (see The Republic). In the story, Athens repels the Atlantean attack unlike any other nation of the (western) known world,[1]  It gives testament to the superiority of Plato’s concept of a state.[2][3] The story concludes with Atlantis falling out of favor with the deities and submerging into the Atlantic Ocean.

Worldly Word Reveals Knowledge of Ancient Egypt

Worldly Word Reveals Knowledge of Ancient Egypt. This blog is based on one word. It is the Hebraic word for “world.”  עולם.  How is this possible? In Hebrew letters doubled as numbers. This is also true of numerous Middle Eastern languages. There were no separate symbols for letters and numbers. They shared the same glyph. This commonality is called  by a Greek term – gematria:

Gematria /ɡəˈmtriə/ (Hebrewגמטריא‬ גימטריא‬, plural גמטראות‬ or גמטריאות‬, gematriot)[1] originated as an Assyro-Babylonian-Greek system of alphanumeric code or cipher.   It was later adopted into Jewish culture that assigns numerical value to a word, name, or phrase. The belief was that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other or bear some relation to the number itself.  It can apply to Nature, a person’s age, the calendar year, or the like…

Start with a square each side one remen. The Egyptian remen is approximately 1.2165 feet. Keep dropping the diagonal as pictured. You then duplicate the measures of ancient civilizations. This was discovered at the turn of the 20th century. Jay Hambidge wrote and lectured about his discovery. His magazine was called The Diagonal. 


Remen, Egyptian and where this Ancient Measure Came … – DSO Works

Universal Egyptian Remen is Found Throughout the … – DSO Works

So What’s with the Hebraic Worldly Word that Holds the Egyptian Remen?

The gematria of  עולם which means world, is 146: Ayin is 70, vav is 6, lamed is 30 and mem is 40. Thus, 70 + 6 + 30 + 40 = 146. One remen = 14.6 inches. In antiquity numbers were freely multiplied by powers of 10. Their concept of nfinity is blogged about on DSOworks. Also the inch existed in ancient civilizations. John Michell discusses, in his View Over Atlantis, how the standard of weight in the ancient world was the cubic inch of gold. To verify this, simply go to the British Museum. A number of specimens from various regions are to be found there. How did the Egyptian remen also become the 146 gematria for Hebrew word for world as the standard of worldly word measure? As the Egyptian link, the answer is Moses. He would be well versed in Egyptian mysteries.

Musical Quaternity with the Four Elements

Musical Quaternity is Analogous to the Four Elements

Musical Quaternity is analogous to the Four Elements.  Here are the players:

  1. The musical quaternity for this blog includes melody, harmony, rhythm and counterpoint.
  2. The four elements are alchemical.  They comprise earth, air fire and water. On the wheel of the zodiac they each occur in rotation three times. This covers the 12 zodiac signs.
  3. Analogy (from Greek ἀναλογία, analogia, “proportion”[1][2]) is a cognitive process of transferring information or meaning from a particular subject – the analog or source, to another.  It has been argued that analogy is “the core of cognition”.[3]

Musical Quaternity with Alchemy: The Analogy


Alchemist Heating a Pot, by David Teniers the Younger (1610 – 1690), oil on canvas.
Harmony is more like the combined, unified yet undifferentiated background. Harmony is the vertical aspect or sound of musical. It represents the combination of sounds at any given moment. Those qualities parallel water. Counterpoint is the horizontal direction of various lines the harmony holds. The two are  thus interconneted. horizontal axis.
Melody is tied to rhythm. You cannot have melody without rhythm. In alchemy, fire represents maximum molecular activity. Earth is minimum activity. It is grounded. With the vertical axis, fire rise. Rhythm gives melody shape and purpose. It provides the substance of melody. They are interconnected as the vertical axis.

Ideal Cities Quoting Dimensions by Author Jan Gehl

Ideal Cities as per author Jan Gehl. The recorded concept of ideal cities goes back to Plato. The “ideal” nature of such a city may encompass the moralspiritual and juridical qualities of citizenship. Ways in which these are realized can include urban structures including buildings, street layout, etc. Ground plans of ideal cities are often based on grids.

The Ideal City by Fra Carnevale, c. between 1480-1484.

An ideal city is the concept of a plan for a city that has been conceived in accordance with the dictates of some “rational” or “moral” objective.

This blog takes this concept even further. It adds the dimension of ideal measures of key city spaces. Author Jan Gehl is referenced.  I, in turn, reference the 3 x 3 number square in this quest. Key measurements are found in feet of three foot yards on this number square. The 12 inch foot is basic.  It is of extreme antiquity. The Reverend John Michell specifies examples at the British Museum. They take the form of the cubic inch of gold. It was the standard unit of weight in Egypt, Greece and Babylon. Of course, a cube has 12 edges. Thus, 12 x 1″ = 12 inches or 1 foot. My own blogs are an attempt to bring back the ancient harmonious world order of a forgotten Golden Age. First, here is the star player in this quest. Please read my blogs about this number square. They are easy and free to access.

Duality of Light Has a New Paradigm.

Duality of Light Has a Surprisingly, New Paradigm

Duality of Light Has a Surprisingly, New Paradigm. In a dual fashion, the comparison is also quite ancient. For us it is new. For the ancients it was known. First, I will define some terms:

  • Paradigm-In science and philosophy, a paradigm /ˈpærədm/ is a distinct set of concepts or thought patterns. It includes theories, research methods, postulates, and standards for what constitutes legitimate contributions to a field. Paradigm comes from Greek παράδειγμα (paradeigma), “pattern, example, sample”[1] . It is from the verb παραδείκνυμι (paradeiknumi), “exhibit, represent, expose”[2] . It is also from παρά (para), “beside, beyond”[3] and δείκνυμι (deiknumi), “to show, to point out”.[4]
Duality - How do you Best Explain this concerpt?
Is light a wave or particle?
  • Dual nature of Light –  Light, appears to have two different sets of behaviors under different circumstances. Albert Einstein suggested that maybe light wasn’t exactly a wave or a particle. Maybe light was both. Albert Einstein’s theory is known as the wave-particle duality of light. It is now fully accepted by modern scientists.

Duality – So What is this New and Ancient Paradigm?

Now for the Paradox

Light in waves can theoretically move and cross cover span of the Universe. An example of this potential is called a light year. Certainly, a wave cannot be compared to a confined dot. It is a true paradox to the particle aspect of light.

1 light-year9460730472580800 metres (exactly)
≈ 9.461 petametres
≈ 9.461 trillion kilometres
≈ 5.878625 trillion miles
≈ 63241.077 astronomical units
≈ 0.306601 parsecs

The paradox of the above number square: It holds infinity! It also holds the formula for the rare “perfect numbers. This is all done in binary fashion with “ones” and “zeros”. It begins with any two opposite numbers equaling 10.

So what Some Samples of the Binary Character of Perfect Numbers?

They are far apart and few between. Take the above perfect numbers of 6, 28, 496, 8128 etc. and square them. The totals you get equal binary numbers squared. Second, they go to infinity. The 3 x 3 number square goes to infinity. It sets the pattern perfect numbers. The use of this magic square of prehistoric times proves former advanced knowledge of higher math. Today, most do not know of its intricacies. 

610 = 1102
2810 = 111002
49610 = 1111100002
812810 = 11111110000002
3355033610 = 11111111111110000000000002.

To understand how the code works, read through the blogs on Many are about music. This is because I play the piano for a living. Many posts are about this 3 x 3 “grain of mustard seed.” I simply enjoy thinking. Posts are easy to access. You’ll even find several blogs about Atlantis on DSOworks. They knew the secrets.


Lord Kelvin and Absolute zero

Lord Kelvin, the Old Hatfield House and Absolute Zero

Lord Kelvin, the Old Hatfield House and Absolute Zero As -273.16K.  First, who was Lord Kelvin? Second, what is absolute zero? Why the Old Hatfield House?

Absolute zero is named in degrees after Lord Lelvin
Lord Kelvin
  •  Absolute zero is the lower limit of the thermodynamic temperature scale. That is a state at which the enthalpy and entropy of a cooled ideal gas reaches its minimum value. It is taken as zero. Absolute zero is the point at which the fundamental particles of nature have minimal vibrational motion. They retain only quantum mechanical, zero-point energy-induced particle motion. By international agreement, absolute zero is taken as −273.15° on the Celsius scale (International System of Units),[1][2 
  • William Thomson, 1st Baron KelvinOMGCVOPCFRSFRSE (/ˈkɛlvɪn/; 26 June 1824 – 17 December 1907) was a Scots-Irish[1][2] mathematical physicist and engineer  He was born in Belfast in 1824. Absolute temperatures are stated in units of kelvin in his honour. The existence of a lower limit to temperature (absolute zero) was known prior to his work, Lord Kelvin is widely known for determining its correct value as approximately −273.15 degree Celsius or −459.67 degree Fahrenheit.

Lord Kelvin has his name attached to the degree scale of absolute zero

Birthplace of Lord Kelvin was Glasgow, Ireland
Picture of Grand Central Station in Glasgow, home of Lord Kelvin

Here is my thoughts about why the number -273.15K  is taken for absolute zero. In antiquity, Harmonia was the goddess associated with harmony. Harmony is based on comparative vibrations of two or more simultaneous tones. If molecules have a minimal vibrational motion at absolute zero, they cannot have harmony. Harmony is based on its number of  v/per sec:

  • Plato refers to the 272 as the number of harmony in his Canon Harmonia was the wife of Cadmus. Her name in Greek was spelled with the letters that added up to 272.
  • It is a masonic number. A rod of brickwork is 272 square feet.
  • The old Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, England  is 272 feet long.

Therefore the very next number (273)  is beyond harmony (272). It was chosen as the number of absolute zero.

Cycles Part Two and Lunar Phases

Cycles Part Two and How They Affect People

Cycles Part Two on How They Affect People. Since at least Neolithic times, builders of civilizations sought to counter the harmful effect cycles can have as they hit their peak. Basically they used a process that I call “transfer.” They transferred the effects of cyclic activity to a distinct physical plane. Often this took the form of a circle divided into four parts. There are many examples of how the Neolithic culture applied their knowledge of cycles. In this regard they were far more advanced than we are today in the 21st century. Here are a few classifications that pertain to business in the 21st century.

cycle time (plural cycle times)

  1. (operations) The total elapsed time to complete an operation or set of operations.
    Order cycle time can now be minutes from when the customer starts entering an order to when it is visible to the warehouse.
    Production cycle time is not as important as the time spent in transit.
    Design cycle time for an all-new state-of-the-art compressor is still years from go-ahead to readiness for manufacture.

    Cycles Part Two and Quadrpartite Division

Cycles Part Two
Neolithic Cultures Saw a Cyclic Fourfold Division of Time. They sought to control its effects through fourfold landscape work.

quad·ri·par·tite (kwŏd′rə-pär′tīt′) adj.

File:Sun cross dotted.png
Quadripartite division of a circle was common in antiquity

Quadripartite Division of Time as an Ancient Tool

  1. The cycle is low. The spiral is unwound. Everything is relaxed.
  2. The cycle winds up. Things begin to tighten
  3. The cyclic peak is reached. That equates with maximum trouble and chaos.
  4. The cycle unwinds. Things go back to being relaxed.

Cycles part two continued: Newton was quite familiar with ancient Egyptian writings. His friend, editor and publisher, Edmond Halley, who, in his 1705 Synopsis of the Astronomy of Comets, used Newton’s new laws to calculate the gravitational effects of Jupiter and Saturn on cometary orbits.[22] This calculation enabled him to determine that the orbital elements of a second comet that had appeared in 1682. They were nearly the same as those of two comets that had appeared in 1531 (observed by Petrus Apianus) and 1607 (observed by Johannes Kepler).[22] Halley thus concluded that all three comets were the same object returning about every 76 years. The period actually varies between 74–79 years. 

Cycles are found from the vast dimensions of the Universe to the microscopic world of the atom. Of course they are also attached to the life processes on Earth. Here are some examples:

  • Galaxies rotate around their centers. The Milky Way takes 200 million years to complete a rotation.
  • The Sun rotates around its axis every 25 Earth days.
  • Comets have a regular elliptical orbit.
  • Meteor showers take place regularly on certain days of the year.
  • The Moon varies in an illumination cycle every 27 days.
  • The Moon produces high tide cycles every 12½ hours.

I will continue to blog on such topics until we can all initiate a new era of peace and plenty. I believe that is in the making. It is called: A Golden Age.

Master number square hides infinity

Master Number Square Shows Similarity in Diversity

Master Number Square Shows Similarity in Diversity. I’m sure you are asking: What is this all about? Why even bother reading this? Answer: We are about to enter into a new Golden Age. It will be marked by peace and plenty.  All will live long and happy lives. The key is understanding how this number square works. – Then its hidden codes and inner workings must be activated. Basically geometry and numbers interact in a set pattern. The numbers that code the periodic chart and lines and angles on the 3 x 3 grid are the same. It works as follows:

Master Number Square of the Ancients is Pictured Below

  • First the featured grid must be filled with the numbers 1 to 9.  Any straight row of 3 numbers must total 15. It is the traditional, ancient arrangement.

Image result for picture of the 3 x 3 number square on DSOworks

  • Next, examine the periodic chart. Note the numerical vertical differences of the 1st row. It sets the pattern in motion. We will subtract successive differences of the higher atomic number from the lower as follows. Li(3)  – H(1) = 2.    Na(11)  – Li (3) = 8.   K(19) – Na (11) = 8.    R(37) – K(19)  = 18.   Cs(55) = R(37) = 55.    Fr(87) – Cs(55) = 32. The vertical differences in the numbers of protons are 2, 8, 8, 18, 18, 32. Note the first three: 2 + 8 + 8 = 18. Thus,the sum of the 1st three atomic number differences duplicates the difference between the 3rd and fourth rows. Thus. 18 =18.

Image result for picture of the 3 x 3 number square on DSOworks

As I blogged about earlier, the traditional 3 x 3 number square is the stamping mill of the Universe. Various line segments duplicate the 2,8,18, and 32 numbers on the period chart. Look at the featured picture for this aspect. But let’s go one step further. The same number square structures the 5 regular polyhedrons. The 5 regular polyhedrons have a total of 3 types of regular polygons for faces:

  • #1, the tetrahedon has 4 triangles.
  • #3, the octahedron has 8 triangles.
  • #6, the icosahedron,  has 20 triangles.
  • Thus, 4 + 8 + 20 = 32.

Next come the sum of the untrianglated figures.

  • The cube has 6 square faces.
  • The dodecahedron has 12 pentagonal faces.
  • Thus, 6 + 12 = 18.

Conclusion: The grid codes the periodic chart. It also codes the 5 regular polyhedrons.  Many of the thus far 410 blogs on point this out. Professionally I am a piano player and composer.  Many blogs are also about music.  Posts are free to read and easy to access. Also, pardon my number mistake in the featured picture. It should be 56 – 38 = 18  in the 2nd vertical row.

Triple Meter Has All But Disappeared

Triple Meter Has All But Disappeared. I refer to music beats per measure. Waltzes are in triple meter. You count 1-2-3 over and over. They are scarce. They are also memorable. For example we have Piano Man and You Light Up My Life.  Two more are Take it to the Limit  and Morning Has Broken.  I would venture to conservatively guess that perhaps 1 in 5,000 popular selections that get air time today are  written in triple meter. According to Wikipedia, it  is a musical meter characterized by a primary division of 3 beats to the bar, usually indicated by 3 (simple) or 9 (compound) in the upper figure of the time signature.

Compound triple drum pattern: divides each of three beats into three About this sound Play 

Simple triple metre beat on rock drum kit[1] About this sound play 

Triple meter is much less common in traditions such as rock & roll and jazz. The most common time in rock, blues, country, funk, and pop is duple and quadruple.[1]

Duple and quadruple meter are sharp and angular. A conductor uses angular strokes of his baton in 2/4 and 4/4. For example, 2/4 is conducted with an angular up and down motion for one and two. Triple meter, on the other had can be conducted with circles or curves.  A circle is completed with each set of 1-2-3 beats.  Let’s apply meter to yang and yin. Duple and quadruple meters are yang. Triple meters are yin. What does this mean for society? Yang is male. With 4/4 or 2/4 meter, the male mostly dominates. While in 3/4 the yin or female becomes more dominant. We are about to see a massive return dominant 3/4 meter. It will be the age of the glorification for the ladies.

Our Drinking Song From the Princess and the Peasant Uses Triple Meter with a Quadruple Meter  Introduction

As men and women come together to waltz, yin and yang become balanced. In so many dances, since the Strauss father and son composers, contact is scarce. However, trends are cyclic. The waltz will return in a big way. I am currently playing piano at the Crab and Fin in Sarasota. Deliberately, I pump a lot of 3/4 time out of the piano. Then, from Christmas to Easter I will be at the Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande, Fl. Of course, I plan to play 3/4 time. This includes many Strauss waltzes. Watch for more posts of my original music in 3/4 time on youtube. The Princess and the Peasant is about to make a big splash. Also, off- season, I offer piano lessons in Sarasota.

numerical rhyme is even found in nursery rhymes.

Numerical Rhyme -is there Such a Thing in Physics?

Numerical Rhyme -is there Such a Thing in Physics? Numbers are easy to identify. But how can they rhyme?  With words, rhyme is a repetition of similar sounds in two or more lines.  They often occur  in the final syllables of lines in poems and songs.[1] The word rhyme is also a pars pro toto (“a part (taken) for the whole”) that means a short poem. This includes a rhyming couplet or other brief rhyming poem such as nursery rhymes. For my blog,  In  Greek  it is ἀριθμός arithmos “number”.  Poetry also derives from the Latin rhythmus.  Rhythm defines the beats in poetry.  The Greek word is ῥυθμός (rhythmosrhythm).[13][14]

As with most products of oral tradition, there are many variations to the Bo-Peep rhyme. The most common modern version is:

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
and doesn’t know where to find them;
leave them alone, And they’ll come home,
wagging their tails behind them.[1]

Thus, rhyme uses the same sound in a definite pattern. Often it comes at the end of the 1st and third lines. With Bo-Peep “find them” and “behind them” make the pattern. They are in lines 2 and 4.

Numerical Rhyme in Fission and Fusion

Here are a couple of facts to help illuminate the topic in physics:

  • First, the higher end of the spectrum. Radioactive elements with a higher atomic number than lead breakdown to lead-82
  • Next, the lower end of the spectrum.  On stars, elements lighter than iron fuse up to iron. It has an atomic number of 26. When enough iron forms at the core of the star, then the star  explodes.  That explosion makes other heavier elements.

Could they be witnessing an exploding star?

So Where is Numerical Rhyme in Fusion and Fission?

Take iron. It is the ash of nuclear fusion. This was described above. Iron has an atomic weight of 56.  This primary isotope of iron has 26 protons and 30 neutrons.  Each proton is balanced by an electron.  Total these primary particles. We have 26 protons + 30 neutrons + 30 electrons = 82 primary particles. By number, 82 defines the number of protons in lead. I most point out a parallel situation with ancient number squares. There are a number of rhyming number squares. Here, we will (1) look at the 5 x 5. Then (2) compare it to the 8 x 8.

  1. Any straight row of numbers on the 8 x 8 square totals 260. Any two opposite numbers on the 5 x 5 square totals 26.
  2. Any two opposite numbers on the 8 x 8 square totals 65. Any straight row of numbers on the 5 x 5 square totals 65.
  3. The square perimeter are the numbers that outline any number square. On the 5 x 5 number square the total is 208.
  4. The total of all the numbers on the 8 x 8 number square is 2080

Conclusion: The ancient 5 x 5 and 8 x 8 number squares are in rhyme. So are lead and iron as explained above. Therefore, there is numerical rhyme in both mathematics and physics. Our ancestors knew this. Isn’t it about time we caught up? Perhaps it may lead us down a path of peace?
