A musicalmile

Musicalmile is a Masonic Unit of Measure

Musicalmile is a Masonic Unit of Measure. Ancient tones of the diatonic musical scale are well known and defined. Their numbers by vibrations per second were also used for  measure. Issac Asimov, for one,  lists these tones in On Physics. Guy Murchie, in Music of the Spheres, lists the same numbers. Every single tone was used in for measure in the Neolithic goddess culture construction.  The general practice was to translate vibrations per second to units of measure that characterized a particular culture. Ancient Greek writers allude to this tradition. They call call architecture frozen music. Goethe elaborates on this quote:


Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here are some tones of the diatonic scale. Vibrations per second of the ascending  diatonic scale in the key of “C” . I’ve blogged about a master temple plan that was made from musical numbers. The Indian Oquaga Spirit gave me a vision of the design.  The list below from the sources given above:
  • Middle “C” vibrates to  264 times per second.
  • D” vibrates to   297 times per second.
  • E –  vibrates to  330 times per second.
  • F – vibrates to 352 times per second.
  • G – vibrates to 396 times per second.
  • A – vibrates to 440 times per second.
  • B – vibrates to 495 times per second.
  • C –  vibrates to 528 times per second.

These numbers were freely multiplied by 10 when larger measurements were desired. Thus, we have the musicalmile.  Many of my blogs are about number squares. The characteristic number of the 3 x 3 square is 10. Any two opposite numbers around the perimeter total 10. Antiquity favored such associations. The 3 x 3 number square was “the grain of mustard seed.” Also, it was considered the numerical square of  the ancient god of engineering, Saturn,  par excellence. Read my blogs on DSOworks.com

The musicalmile ( as 528 yards) finds expression by number at the Great Mosque of Akbar
The Great Mosque of Akbar in Turkey translated diatonic C/528 vibrations per second to a perimeter of 528 yards. An ancient Masonic tradition has survived.

Why bother with all this? At one time civilization had harmony and peace. Lack of warfare was not uncommon in goddess cultures. They existed  before 4350 B.C. Riane Eisler covers the subject in The Chalice and the Blade. We are about to return to a Golden Age of peace and plenty. Music will lead the way. That’s why King David was a musician first. Over time, I will blog about sites built by music. Part of this return to a Golden Age is to rebuild or refurbish “musical” sites. We must create a greater awareness of what music and harmony can do for mankind.




Eureka! The mysterious Oquaga Spirit is found here, if you are lucky.

Eureka: Is yelled by Archimedes, then by Ohrenstein

Eureka! was the exclamation of Archimedes of Syracuse. It translates from Greek: “I found it!” He noticed that the level of the water in the bath he was taking rose as he got in. Archimedes then realized this knowledge could be used to determine not only the volume the King’s crown; but if it was made of real gold. The King had expressed a strong wish to know.


Some 2,200  years later I, David Ohrenstein, had been looking for the “grain of mustard seed” from which everything grows.  It has been a life long, personal quest. A spirit, that I call the Oquaga Spirit, verbally gave me the answer.  This spirit has a haunt around Oquaga Lake in the Catskill Mountains near Deposit New York. The lake is spring fed. It is perched at an elevation of about 2,000 feet. The  next 30 years I passed, intensely  researching her words: “If you want to know the source of all the sciences and arts, look more closely at the 3 x 3 number square.”

I now believe what the spirit told me  is truth. The 3 x 3 number square is the grain of mustard seed from which everything grows. The spirit illuminated hidden number codes within the walls of its tick-tack-toe board. It even explained double and spiral coding. As a result, I have written over 1000’s of pages.  Her wisdom redefines knowledge in the sciences and arts. I believe this knowledge will lead to a new Golden Age of “peace and plenty”. I  spent 15 summer seasons on Oquaga Lake as the pianist at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.  The Oquaga Spirit was a native American Indian of the Lennie Lenape tribe.  Their encampments included this lake. Women were in charge and had the power.

Enjoy this free sample of the Oquaga’s Spirit’s wisdom through her poetry. The complete book is available as a product on DSOworks.com for $2.99.  It has 100 pages of poetry with pictures.  Or, if funds are tight, enjoy this free youtube recording of some of the poetry she dictated. I’ve memorized all her words in the book. Why not invite the Oquaga Spirit to your next program or party? As a pianist, I will be posting a one hour DVD of me playing the music of Claude Debussy in the near future.

The Golden Age; Where is it?

The Golden Age by Pietro da Cortona.

The Golden Age; Where is it? The ancient tradition of naming of ages the of man was documented by Hesiod, an 8th century BC Greek poet.  In Work and Days, he describes five ages. These ages are cyclic: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Age of Heroes, and Iron.

  • The Golden Age denotes all the good things in life: peace, harmony, stability, and prosperity. Man lives to an old age, dies peacefully and wanders about after death as a benevolent spirit.
  • The Silver age was worse. Men were not only foolish and immature, but refused to worship the Deity.
  • The Bronze age was far more violent. Mankind destroyed one another with bronze weapons.
  • The Age of Heroes was more just. This age included some of the heroes of the Trojan War.
  • The Age of Iron, which we are still in, is characterized by turmoil, strife and sadness.

Things might seem bad now, but the cycle is about to restart once more with the Golden Age. The key to the door of our new Golden Age is the tiny grain of mustard seed called the 3 x 3 number square; the smallest of number squares. We can “read”its  numbers”, in a way called gematria as they did in antiquity. Often letters and numbers shared one symbol; not like most languages today that use separate symbols for numbers and letters.  This tradition is buried in the past but belongs to all mankind: Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, even Zoroaster. Here’s how to read the 3 x 3 square in Judaism.  Everyone will be included in future blogs. What we have in common promotes peace and all the good things that come with it.

  • 5 is the central number = 5 Books of Moses
  • 10, any two opposite numbers = 10 Commandments
  • 40, totals 8 numbers around #5= days and nights Moses was on Mt Sinai to receive the law
  • 15, total of any row of 3 numbers=the gematria of the shortest name of God, “Yah” (yud (10) , hei (5)
  • 20, the four corners or 4 inner numbers total 20 = the gematria of the double “Yud”, another  spelling of the Holy name.
  • 120, totals the fact that 15 can be found in 8 different ways by adding 3 numbers in a row: (3 sets vertically, 2 sets diagonally and 3 sets horizontally)=the years of the life of Moses.
