Remen Measure was Known by Moses

Remen Measure was Known by Moses. According to the Hebrew Bible, he was adopted by an Egyptian princess.  Later in life became the leader of the Israelites and lawgiver.  He is generally credited with the authorship of the Torah, or acquisition of the Torah. His position in Egypt gave him access to knowledge possessed by  the higher echelons of royalty. He knew source of the remen, in at least two different mathematical ways, is the 3 x 3 number square.

1.2165 feet = 1 remen
1.2165 feet x √2 = 1.72 feet – one royal cubit
1.2165 feet x √3 = 2.107 feet- one Palestinian cubit
1.2165 feet x  √4 = 2.43 feet – one Roman pace
1.2165 feet x  √5 = 2.72 feet – one megalithic yard etc., up to

 Here is the 1st approach to the Remen measure:

  • Add the numbers around the central 5 (I term these numbers p1 which stands for perimeter one). The eight numbers total 40.
  • Then add them two at the time overlapping the numbers. I call this p-2. This stands for perimeter two: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. Now take the number three at the time.
  • Add them 3 at the time. Overlap the corners. I call this p-3. This stands for perimeter three:  492 + 276 + 618 +  834 = 2,220. Then (p-1)   is 40 + (P-2)  is 440 + ( P-3) 2,220  = 2700.
  • Finally, divide the 2700 total of p1 + p2 + p3 by/ p3(2220): Thus, 40 + 440 + 2220/2220 = 1.2162…virtually one Egyptian remen.

2nd Approach to Arriving at the Remen Measure

remen measure
Everything that John Michell wrote by himself and with Christine Rhone is a must read. He explains the Canon of Measures. I simply applied it to the 3 x 3 number square.

Add the numbers on the square above three at the time. Do this vertically and horizontally as follows:

  • Horizontally: (492 + 618) +  (357 + 753) +  (816 + 294) = 3330.
  • Vertically: (438 + 672) +  (951 + 159) + (438 + 672) = 3330.

Next, total the single numbers, 1 to 9,  in the number square:

  • 1 + 2 + 3+ 4+ 5+ 6+ 7+8 + 9 = 45.
  •  Take the sum of the vertical and horizontal totals given above: 3330 + 3330  = 6660, Then divide 6660 by  the 45 total. The quotient is 148.  The square root of 148 is exactly the numbers of 10 Egyptian remens by number= 12.165…

For the 2nd way, 148  is the key number. So, how does this tie into Moses? In Hebrew Passover is spelled פסח. The 1st letter (pei)  is the glyph for  80. The 2nd (sameck) is the glyph for  60. The third (chet) represents 8. Thus, 80 + 60 + 8 = 148. Passover and the remen measure are thus tied together.

How did I learn to work the mathematical  intricacies  of the 3 x 3 number square? From an American Indian spirit on Oquaga Lake. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe. On walks in the Oquaga Lake area, the spirit communicated ancient secrets to me. The tribe once lived around the lake. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.

FIve Books in the Old Testament number the Mitzvot

Mitzvot (as good deeds) are 248 to Do; and 365 Not to Do

Mitzvot (as good deeds) are set at 248 to Do; 365 Not To do. Most prominent in the 5 Books of Moses are the 10 Commandments. Yet within the context of these 5 books are another 603 commandments. Many can be followed. Among those that cannot be followed are those having to do with the service at the Holy Temple. It is no longer standing. The question for today’s blog is why the specific numbers of 248 and 365.


Jay Hambidge discovered a canon of measures in antiquity. This was at the turn of the 1900’s. They were derived by multiplying the basic Egyptian remen by successive square roots of whole numbers of 2,3,4,5,6……The number used for its square root to determine the measure varied by civilization. This remen measures 1.2165….feet. John Michell clearly discusses the canon of measures in his book, City of Revelation.

Here’s a List Some of the Measures in the Canon By Feet

1.2165 feet = 1 remen
1.2165 feet x √2 = 1.72 feet – one royal cubit
1.2165 feet x √3 = 2.107 feet- one Palestinian cubit
1.2165 feet x  √4 = 2.43 feet – one Roman pace
1.2165 feet x  √5 = 2.72 feet – one megalithic yard etc., up to

1.2165 feet x √9 = 3.65 feet…

So where are the numbers 248 and 365?  Right above this paragraph, we see the 365 for the negative commandments. However, 243 number of the Roman pace (see above) is 5 short of 248 number for positive commandments.  “Five”, represented by the Hebrew letter “hei” had a special meaning when added to a name in the Bible.  In many middle eastern languages letters doubled as numbers. In contrast, today in most languages,  numbers have one symbol and letters have another.  When “hei” as  number five was added to a name, as a symbol, it  represented coming to know “God.” The sentiment still survives in the expression “give me five.” In music it is immortalized by Paul Desmond’s “Take Five.” Before Abraham came to know God, his name was “Avram”. It had a numerical equivalent of 243: Just like the numbers of the pace, 2.43 feet. After he recognized the one true God, a “hei” (5) was added to his name. In the words of Rabbi Munk: The Zohar states: “Heaven and earth were created in the merit of Abraham, for Abraham’s future recognition of God as the Creator.”

  • Measurement was considered sacred.
  • The same system as the Ancient Canon of Measures gauged not only ancient temples, but  even numbered types of commandments in the Bible.
  • This grand vision of unity was once shared by mankind. Hopefully, this peaceful vision of grand unity can be revived.
