Ideal Cities and town squares are part of this wonderful book.

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.

Mankind: 120 Years For a Life Span According to Genesis

Mankind: 120 Years.  They question then  becomes what is the source of Genesis 6:3- And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. The Hebrew from the Torah of the Scripture are:  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, לֹא-יָדוֹן רוּחִי בָאָדָם לְעֹלָם, בְּשַׁגַּם, הוּא בָשָׂר; וְהָיוּ יָמָיו, מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה.

The source is found in the featured image given above. Hebrew uses gematria. That is the cross over been words and numbers. That cross over does not exist in  modern languages. Words are one thing. Numbers are another. Current languages use separate symbols for letters and numbers. Certain old languages, as Hebrew and Greek,  used the same symbols.

  • אָדָם – In Hebrew, generic man expressed as Adam, has a gematria of 45. That states, unequivocally, man’s source is the 3 x 3 number square. Total the numbers from 1 to 9. They equal 45.
  • מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה- These are the Hebraic “120 year words”. Look at the featured number square again. 

Her’s how 15 can be found in 8 different ways by single numbers on the same number square. That totals the 120.  Not only man(45) , but his life span(120 expressed in years) is thus connected to this fundamental number square of all number squares. The 3 x 3 number square is “The grain of mustard seed from which everything grows”.


  • The three vertical ways are: 4 + 3 + 8. Then 9 + 5+ 1. Finally, 2 + 7 + 6.
  • The three horizontal ways are: 4 + 9 + 2. Then 3 + 5 + 7. Finally, 8 + 1 + 6.
  • Then, we have the two diagonal ways: 4+5 + 6. Then, 2 + 5 + 8.
  • This, 8 x 15 = 120.

I have been shown how the cultures of antiquity used these number squares. My main source and guide was the Oquaga Spirit of Oquaga Lake. The “Lady of the Lake” as I call her. My family and I spent some 15 summers by this lake in the foothills of the Catskills.  The lake is on top of a mountain. This spirit dictated my book of some 100 pages of poetry with pictures now available as a product DSOworks. It is  called the Oquaga Spirit Speaks. The spirit showed me the source of “truth”. She revealed the hidden number codes in this basic number square. The essence of the  spirit is a female of the Lennie Lenpe American Indian tribe. The tribe dwelled around the lake at one time.
