Characteristic number hides a secret code

Characteristic Number Hides a Secret Code

Characteristic Number Hides a Secret Code. Civilization has lost its touch with the past. A lost Golden Age  was all about number squares. Two opposite numbers always totaled the same number. Our featured number square will be the 3 x 3. Its characteristic number is 10. Any two opposite numbers total 10. These include 9 + 1;  4 + 6;  3 + 7; and 2 + 8.  First, where did I first learn about number squares? From the writings of British author, John Michell. Many of my blog are about the 3 x 3 number square. Below is an internal link to one of them. I However, I was able to take John Michell’s work a step further. This is because of an American Indian spirit guide from the Lennie Lenape. It all happened on Oquaga Lake  (See picture below).

View the square 2 numbers at the time by opposites. Whereas two numbers that cross the center are paired in the same row. Their sum is always 110. Thus, 49 + 61 = 110. Or, 35 + 75 = 110.   The 110 can be pulled out of the square in 16 ways. Thus, 16 X 110 = 1,760. The center then becomes 55. It is surrounded by 440


Characteristic Number Square List of Antiquity

  • The 3 x 3 is 10.
  • The 4 x 4 equals 17.
  • The 5 x 5 totals 26
  • The 6 x 6 is 37.
  • The 7 x 7 is 50.
  • The 8 x 8 is 65
  • The 9 x 9 is 82.

So where is the hidden number code? Take the prime characteristic number of the 3 x 3 number square. Its sum is 10 as described. Next, total the numbers from 1 to 10. They equal 55. You have just seen how the center of the 3 x 3 number square becomes 55 when viewed two numbers at the time.  Today many scoff at this. The ancients of a lost Golden Age accepted it.  My Indian spirit guide also offered a book of poetry, filled  with her wisdom.

Earth Moon system by a number square

Earth Moon System and 27 x 27 Number Square

Earth Moon System and 27 x 27 Number Square. The barycenter  is the center of mass of two or more bodies that are orbiting each other. Earth and Moon have a shared barycenter. As such they are a dual planetary system.  Barycenters are an important concept astronomy and astrophysics. This is the case for the Earth–Moon system. The barycenter is located on average 2,902 mi from the Earth’s center. This is well within the planet’s radius of 3,963 miles.

Earth Moon system and the 27 x 27 number square

Four Hundred Fortieth Post Defines Genesis   You might want to review the previous post.  My current post (441) is simply a continuation.  The common Earth based system for both is implied on the 27 x 27 number square. Here’s how:

  • Look at the core number of this number square. It is numbered three hundred and sixty-five. That defines the days of our solar year. Its core is the essence of any number square.
  • Look at the white diagonal from #352 to #378.  Each each lunation is approximately ​29 12 days (29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, 3 seconds, or 29.530588 days).  It is common for the months of a lunar calendar to alternate between 29 and 30 days. There are  twelve such lunations. The Lunar year is  is therefore 354 days, 8 hours, 48 minutes, 34 seconds (354.367056 days). Both 354 and 355 are included in this same diagonal.

Both the timing of the the Earth and Moon are found the the aforementioned diagonal line. The Earth is the main and central planet. The Moon has its center of gravity on the same diagonal. Likewise, Moon is part of the 365 day Earth based system.

At one time civilization was structured by number squares. It was a time of peace and prosperity. Does that describe the legend of Atlantis?  Plato describes in Critias what his grandfather was told by King Solon. Solon heard the story from the Egyptians. Atlantis was a mighty power based on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. Perhaps, over time, they also lost their interaction with number squares? Many blogs on cover number square mathematics.



Musical Tradition is Heard at the Gasparilla Inn

Musical Tradition Embraces Architectural Style

Musical Tradition Embraces Architectural Style. Obviously, Elvis is the star in the featured picture. Now, who is playing the Steinway concert grand in the beautiful setting below? That’s your blogger, David. So what does one have to do with the other? It’s the music that I’m playing. Basically, I love the style and taste of Elvis.

Here’s a story: One of my most popular piano arrangements, Aura Lea: Theme and Variations for piano, was composed in Toronto, Ontario.   No matter where I play it – on the concert stage, for a private party or during the dinner hour – it always receives grand applause and some rather sizable tips.  The arrangement is heart rendering;  bringing back pleasant memories.  One variation combines the theme with “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf”; bringing two great American songs together.  And, by the way, this composition has many showy virtuoso passages. Yes, choosing this number, Elvis proved once more that he was king.

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.

Future Telling by a poetic spirit on Oquaga Lake

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit. Common methods used for fortune telling in Europe and the Americas include astromancyhorary astrologypendulum reading, spirit board reading, tasseography (reading tea leaves in a cup), cartomancy (fortune telling with cards), tarot readingcrystallomancy (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

Future Telling and the Oquaga Spirit
Spiritual presence radiates forth from this mountain top, spring fed lake. Its beauty is almost incredible.

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.

The future is hidden by “fog.” So are two birds in this masterful picture.
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.


phi tie crosses the boundaries of this number square

Phi Tie is Like Tied Musical Notes Crossing Many Measures

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.

phi tie across disciplines could be compared to tied musical notes
Phi defines a consistent ratio across the measure of nature of 1.618…to 1.

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 and type in “phi”.

Lost code reference is in the Bible

Staying Young: The Oquaga Spirit’s Advice

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 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  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

Staying Young on Oquaga Lake According to the Oquaga Spirit.
The Beauty of Oquaga Lake as Viewed  from Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.

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 for more stories about the spirit.

Ancient Irish Order Reveals Lost World Harmony.

Irish Mile and Landscape Come Together

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.
  • Related image


  • 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 For this blog I copy an excerpt from my last blog about the Welsh mile.
    The Welsch Mile Comes From the Same Magic Square as the Chineese Lo Shu
    In a former unified world view, the 3 x 3 number square also gave rise to 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.


    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 unto the Lord a New Song

Sing to the Lord all the Earth ref. Johannes Kepler

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?

Sing? What exactly is the Earth's song?
Sing unto the Lord a New Song. Kepler posted a musical motif for each planet. They are based on their various orbital speeds. These are relative to each other. In this regard they have ratios like musical tones.

Psalm 33:1-22   Shout 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
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.
