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 moral, spiritual 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.

Add the numbers around the central 5 (I term these numbers p1 which stands for perimeter one). 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 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 numbers three at the time. Overlap the third with the first number. 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 this 2700 total of p1 + p2 + p3 by/ p3(2220) or 40 + 440 + 2220/2220 = 1.2162…virtually one Egyptian remen. Very important: A remen = 14.6 inches. (12 x 1.2165″).

So Where is Jan Gehl’s Measure of Ideal Cities?

The pictured number square is that of man. Adam was the prototype man. As spelled with Hebrew letters below, it totals 45: Aleph = 1. Dalet = 4. Mem = 40{

Total the numbers 1 to 9. They equal 45. In Hebraic gematria numbers are represented by letters. They share the same symbol. This becomes the number square of man. Units of measure that touched number squares were freely converted by number into each other. It was the number that was important. Read the blogs on DSOworks.com for background. The site merely presents a new vision of current importance for an ancient concept- number squares.

Take the numbers 2 at the time as follows: 49 + 61 = 110. Or, 83 + 27 = 110. This total can be found in such combinations in 16 different ways. In Cities for People, Gehl discusses how the ideal social field of vision is no greater than 110 yards.

The ideal height of buildings is no more that 5 stories. Five stories = 44 feet. Perimeter two (described above) totals 440. This was taken as 44. Five is the central number of the square. In antiquity “zero” was considered to be a synthetic number.: Any two opposite numbers on the square total 10. Hence the 440 can be and was taken as 44.

Ideal spacing of shops is a 5 second walk which covers 20 feet. Total the 4 corners as 4 + 2 + 6 + 8 = 20. The inner 4 numbers between the corner four also total 20. With the timing of 5 seconds, look at the central number: We have “5”. Thus, the number square of man and the measurement of ideal city spaces are congruent,

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit. Common methods used for fortune telling in Europe and the Americas include astromancy, horary astrology, pendulum reading, spirit board reading, tasseography (reading tea leaves in a cup), cartomancy (fortune telling with cards), tarot reading, crystallomancy (reading of a crystal sphere), and chiromancy (palmistry, reading of the palms). The last three have traditional associations in the popular mind with the Roma and Sinti people (often called “gypsies”).

However, current theories of leading physicists see reality as a connection or continuum of space-time. Thus, as the present is visible, so are the past and the future. I was fortunate enough to spend 15 summer seasons on Oquaga Lake. My official title was “the house pianist” at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. One of my duties was playing the piano on “Scott’s Showboat of Song.” It daily circled Oquaga Lake at 4:30 pm. Once in a while we did a nighttime cruise. Everyone was happy and joyful. Most sensed a spiritual presence on the lake. For me, it spoke in poetry as a hiked around the lake in the early morning hours. Below is one of the spirit’s poems. It is entitled “Future Fog.” An illustrated book of her poetry is called: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.” It is available as a product on DSOworks.com

Future Telling in the Poem “Future Fog” in the Oquaga Spirit Speaks

We see the future in a fog But though we cannot see through,
And know not what it brings. We still may smell and hear.
It’s milky, dense and thick By keeping all senses sharp
And hides most everything. We see ahead the year.

We do not know tomorrow, For sound penetrates the fog.
If it bring joy or sorrow And smell drifts through the haze.
Or if it just be plain By keeping all senses sharp,
Like slow and steady rain. We see ahead the days.

We know not how things shape up
Until the fog has lifted.
But then the future is the present,
As the sands of time have shifted.

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.

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.

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 DSOworks.com 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.

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”.

Staying Young: The Oquaga Spirit’s Advice. This spirit dwells around Oquaga Lake. Over 15 years it has communicated its wisdom to me. Her knowledge of Neolithic culture with its priestly use of number squares is in the process of being posted on a new website. It is called Revivingantiquity.com. Currently it is under construction. I, David, and Sharon with our creation of musicals, chamber music, opera, and works for symphonic orchestras and concert bands will stay on DSOworks.com It all takes time- so please be patient. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” applies in this case. It is an adage attesting to the need for time to create great things. It is the usual English translation of a medieval French phrase, «Rome ne fu[t] pas faite toute en un jour», from the collection Li Proverbe au Vilain (published around 1190; reprinted here). The modern French form is «Rome ne s’est pas faite en un jour.»

The Oquaga Spirit Speaks About Staying Young in Her Poem, Never, Never Sit Still

Never, Never Sit Still

Be like the wind to renew
Circulate and blow through.
Keeping in motion is youth’s potion.
Never, never sit still.

Air that sits in mass
Stifles and doesn’t pass.
It grows stale and makes one pale.
Never, never sit still.

The swamp decays
On stillborn days.
The stagnant calls for storm.

Keep the heart pumping!
Keep the mind thinking!
Never, never sit still!

For me, the Oquaga Spirit is very real. Everyone who goes to the lake can feel a special spiritual presence. This spirit chooses different ways to communicate with everyone. To most, she “radiates reassuring peace and sensations most sublime.” A few have tried to cross her. An example was a certain night watchman. He made quite a pest of himself. One evening he tumbled down a flight of stairs in Green Gables. He left a heel make over the bannister all the way down. It is still visible. The watchman literally crashed a party that was being held by a dance troup. He quit his job shortly afterwards, never to come back to Oquaga Lake. Keep checking DSOworks.com for more stories about the spirit. Also soon, start to check out Revivingantiquity.com. A few posts are up.

Irish Mile and Landscape Come Together. First, let’s define terms.

What is an Irish mile? An Irish mile measures 6,720 feet. This is listed in Ancient Metrology by John Michell.

Where does the 6.720 foot Irish mile stem from? At one time this was common knowledge. I redicovered it on Oquaga Lake thanks to a spirit that dwells on and around the lake (picture below). She also dictated an entire book of poetry, It is called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, available on DSOworks.com For this blog I copy an excerpt from my last blog about the Welsh mile.

This is also a modern representation of the Lo Shu square as a magic square.

First, a quick review of the Welsh mile: Numbers of this square were typically divided into two sections. They were the corner of 4 numbers and the left over gnomon of 5 numbers. Different civilizations used different corners and gnomons. For the Welsh mile, remove the 4 number corner of 9,2,5 and 7. Then multiply the left over gnomon as 4 x 3 x 9 x 1 x 6 = 576. . For the tenfold number of 5760, a synthetic zero was added. I must first ask my reader to note, the square has no number 10. It consists only of the first nine digits. This is because 10 was a synthetic number: Any two of the opposite digits on the 3 x 3 square total 10. These include 4 + 6; 3 + 7; 2 + 8; and 9 + 1. Zero was not considered to be a freely existing number for that reason.This number as the Welsh mile was given measure by the English 12 inch foot. My source for the Welsh mile is Ancient Metrology by John Michell.

SO WHERE IS THE 5,760 FOOT LONG IRISH MILE?

Look to the same number square pictured above. We will just take different corner and gnomon. For the Irish mile, multiply the gnomon numbers 2 x 7 x 6 x 1 8 = 672. Again, like the Welsh mile, we add the synthetic zero. The coindicence of this gnomon/corner division goes even deeper for Ireland. The due East-West line through the center of Ireland neatly fits into the overall landscape of a pentagon . This is pictured in the book: Twelve Tribe Nations and the Science of Enchanting the Landscape. It is written by John Michell and Christone Rhone. Now once more back to our universally used Neolithic number square. Multiply the four corner numbers as 4 x 9 x 3 x 5 = 540. That states the number of degrees in a pentagon. Thus the following comes out of this particular gnomic/corner division: Not only the length of the Irish mile; but the shape of the pentagon employed that this mile measured.

I believe these re-discoveries will reinstitute a new vision for peace and harmony based on this common source for our sciences and arts. May the Oquaga Spirit be with you!

Sing to the Lord all the Earth ref. Johannes Kepler. First of all, most of us have an idea about the Lord. Who was Kepler? Johannes Kepler, (born December 27, 1571, Weil der Stadt, Württemberg [Germany]—died November 15, 1630, Regensburg) German astronomer who discovered three major laws of planetary motion, The ones were will consider in are: Laws 2: The time necessary to traverse any arc of a planetary orbit is proportional to the area of the sector between the central body and that arc. It is known as the “area law.” Law 3: there is an exact relationship between the squares of the planets’ periodic times and the cubes of the radii of their orbits (the “harmonic law”). Harmonic? Does the Earth have song? Do we need a new song? The Psalms continually refer to a “new song.” If we do, what exactly is wrong with the old one?

Psalm 33:1-22Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! Sing to him a new song;

Psalm 96:1 Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!

For the Earth’s musical motif as per Kepler, we have “Mi, Fa, Mi”. He stated this stood for “Misery, Famine and more Misery.” In this regard, the psalms are what we need. They can eliminate this condition. It would be a worthwhile undertaking to sing this new song. Enough negativity. Read the psalms and join the happy chorus in the featured picture! Best of the holidays from DSOworks.com Isaiah 42:10 – Sing unto the LORD a new song, [and] his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

Bayon. Temple in Cambodia Uses the 3 x 3 number square. A unified vision can lead to world peace. At one time the 3 x 3 number square provided that vision. Worldwide, holy structures were conceived by its obvious and hidden number codes. We need a new re-dedication to peace. Recognition of this code and how it was used can provide that.

The Bayon is in sotheast Asia. It is located in city of Angkor Thom in Cambodia. The Bayon outlines a square. The overall foundation is based on a square of 487.5 feet on each side and the diagonal of the square of 689.43 feet. The sum two sides of a square and its closing diagonal duplicate a hidden code on the 3 x 3 number square. The Bayon Temple was built approximately 1200 AD. If you have been reading these blogs, The 1st and 2nd Hebrew temples were built by the same code. However, use of this code predates not only the Hebrew nation, but even the Summerians.

THE BAYON, ITS MATH DUPLICATES ONE OF THE HIDDEN CODES OF THE 3 X 3 NUMBER SQUARE. HERE’S HOW:

Here is one of its infinite secrets. Yes, this is the simplest of number squares. Yet, it mathematics holds infinity. Take the numbers three at a time as follows: -492 + 357 + 816 = 1665. Reverse the numbers: 294 + 753 + 618 = 1665. Now, let’s add the dimensions I just gave above. We have The length of 487.5 feet + 487.5 feet + their diagonal of 689.43 feet = 1664.43 feet. . Given the date of construction,the correspondence extremely close to the square of three’s number of 1665. As for the 12 inch foot, the standard unit of weight in Babylon, Greece and Egypt was the cubic inch of gold. Examples are in the British Museum. A cube has 12 edges. 12 x 1 inch = 0ne foot. Ancients looked and saw inter-relatedness. Today, too many look only at differences. Let’s go back to peace. Its as simple as tick-tack-toe. Many more blogs are upcoming on DSOworks.com about the world’s holy sites in this unifying manner.

Precision Numbers the Letters of the 1st 5 Books of the Bible. They include the 27 letters listed below. We have a tally for each letter. The collective total is also given as 304,805 letters. The letters of the 1st 5 books, (called Torah in Hebrew) also doubled as numbers. The system was based on numbers 1 to 9. The Hebrew letters actually doubled as numbers. There was no separate system of letters and numbers like in, for example, English. This ancient double representation is called by a Greek name, “gematria”. Of course, higher digits were derived from combing these nine numbers. Thus, 27 letters + 9 numbers = 36 total symbols. In effect, God used these 27 letters and the 9 digits (totals 36) as a templet to stamp out the other 304,805. The total becomes 304,805 + 36 = 304,841. Once we know this, the formula appears:

PRECISION FOR THE LETTERS OF THE IST 5 BIBLICAL BOOKS

A Sefer Torah (Hebrew: ספר תורה; plural: ספרי תורהSifrei Torah ; “Book(s) of Torah” or “Torah scroll(s)”) is a handwritten copy of the Torah, the holiest book in Judaism.

Why is precision so important?

I have been blogging about the 3 x 3 number square and its hidden number codes. Those who haven’t read them are at a disadvantage. Sorry. They are all available for free on DSOworks.com. Just press “all posts”. This number square’s essence is: It is the smallest number square. Yet, it grows to infinity. This happens by multiples of ten.Ten totals any opposite pair of 2 numbers of the square of the featured picture above. Now for the math:

Any opposite numbers two at the time total 110. For example 43 + 67 = 110. Any row that crosses the center is its own compliment as: 95 +15 = 110

110 can be pulled out of this square in 16 ways. 16 x 110 = 1760. How was 1760 used in antiquity? The perimeter around the Great Pyramid of Egypt is 1760 0f shorter Egyptian cubits of 1.71818…feet. Another way, 1760 numbers the “English” yards in a mile of 5,280 feet.

So where is the 304,805 letters of the Torah + the 36 letters and numbers used as the templet (total 304,841)? The key to this question belongs to all mankind. The design below is used by all religions. The picture below illustrates one application from one religion: Christian legends have claimed that the Glastonbury Abbey was founded by Joseph of Arimathea in the 1st century.The length of the vessel of the well cover (enclosed section by the overlapping circles.) is longer than the width by the square root of 3.

Take 176,000 ( which is 1,760 x 10 x 10) from 3 x 3 number square. Multiply it by the square root of 3= 304,841. We have the total letters including the templet of 36 that forms the Torah. The number gives rise to the formula and design that frames the first 5 books of the Bible in Hebrew.

Megaconcert given by violinist Rubinoff for 225,00 people. I worked with this classical/popular violinist for abut 20 years. He holds the world’s record for attendance at a concert. I was his arranger and accompanist. He told me his secret on how he built this large audience. The year was 1937. To get acquainted with him, view this youtube video. This wonderful treat was just posted by conductor Joseph Rubin. Click on the picture to be transported to a world of fun and beauty. This kind and thoughtful man has been encouraging me to share more Rubinoff stories. Rubinoff’s piece, Fiddlin’ the Fiddle was published by Irving Belin. It sold a million copies almost immediately. Click on the picture below to hear Rubinoff play his nationwide best seller. Then,to hear him play 50 years later with myself at the piano , visit DSOworks.com. Click on the thumbnail, “Lost Concert Found.” It was videoed during a thunderstorm in the Catskill Mountains at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. At age 86 he still had the magic.

RUBINOFF’S MEGACONCERT MEDALLION IN DIAMONDS AND RUBIES

An priceless medallion was given to Rubinoff by Jimmy Petrillo, the “czar” of the Chicago Federation of Musicians. It holds an 18kt gold violin. It is encrusted with diamonds and rubies. On the back is the insciption:

“Presented to Rubinoff and His Violin
By
The Chicago Federation of Musicians
For services rendered at Grant Park
Chicago. August 3, 1937,
Attendance 225,000”

Rubinoff, about his megaconcert would add: “They turned away 25,000 at the door.” Here is today’s Rubinoff story. In a future blog I will write about his most unique marketing stategy. Back to Florida: We gave a concert for the junior orchestra at Venice Middle School. Dave always wanted children to have enrichment through music. We did our concert gratis.

THE VIOLIN CASE STEALS THE SHOW!!!

Rubinoff had an alligator skin. For years he wanted to make it into a cover for his violin case. No one in the U.S. could or would touch the project. At that time alligator hunting was illegal. Then he got an idea: He sent it to the finest tailor craftman in Germany. Indeed, the alligator skin was made into a masterpiece. What happned at the Venice Concert? The moment Rubinoff and I made our entrance, every child was silent. They all looked with big eyes at the fins on his alligator case. He pulled the Strad out. By the way, the Stradiavrius violin belonged to Czar Nicholas II of Russia. The violin had the offical seal of the Russian empire encrusted in diamonds and rubies on the finger board. However, the fact that the violin was valued at 2 million dollars meant nothing to the kids. They were totally taken up with the alligator case. Without playing one note on his violin, he won their respect. The conclusion is “kids will be kids”. I think this blog is family friendly. Please feel free to share it. Let Rubinoff continue to inspire children to become all that they can be. Our email is DSOworks at Gmail.com. Keep checking. Many more “Rubinoff” stories are in the making. -David
