Roses contain mysteries and were favored in Jerusalem

Roses, the only flower allowed in Jerusalem

Roses, the only flower allowed in Jerusalem. What got me thinking about roses was the beautiful red rose bush I bought for my wife, Sharon, on her returning home. The cultivation of roses in Jerusalem is based on  an article by Joshua Siskin in the LA Daily News, dated 1/15/16. He mentions two sources: Babylonian Talmud and the great sage, Rashi (see picture below).

  • In Dava Kama, 82b “there had been rose gardens in Jerusalem from the days of the 1st prophets”.
  • Rashi states they were added to the Temple incense that was used twice a day. Cultivation of the roses was permitted for this purpose by the Jordan River.

I’ve been blogging on antiquity and number squares. This wisdom was given to me by the Oquaga Spirit. She was of the Lennie Lenape Tribe. They surrounded the area around Oquaga Lake in Deposit, New York. They were also a branch of the Algonquin Indians. The first two odd number squares of antiquity were the  3 x 3 and 5 x 5 (check my other blogs). The middle number of the 3 x 3 is 5. The middle number of the bigger 5 x 5 is 13. Here’s how roses relate:

  • The rose has 5 “strong petals”.
  • It has 13 weaker petals on the outside
  • In geometry there are only 5 possible regular polyhedrons. (Platonic solids)
  • There are only  13 semi-regular solids (called the Archimedian solids)
  • Number squares set the entire pattern for the cosmos.
  • 5 and 13 are central numbers on the goddess culture 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 number squares, respectively,  used in Neolithic times.
  • In Hebrew letters doubled as numbers with a single symbol. This is called by the Greek name, gematria. I have blogged about how numerous names that our Creator is referred to in the Torah, duplicate key numbers of 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 squares.

    The 13 semi regular solids were names after Archimedes

    Many of my 146 blogs thus far are about the number squares. All are easily accessible along with our many musical blogs.  We have concerts, shows and music- all original.  Many are on the thumbnails and can be viewed for free on  Number squares were the basis of goddess cultures. This knowledge has been lost. On my products page, I have 100 pages with the poetry that the Oquaga Spirit dictated to me. I added pictures. What is the conclusion: With knowledge, a Golden Age  of peace and plenty can be regained. I plan, the Holy Name willing, to keep blogging until that happens – David.

Code: Does the Tree of Life Have a Message?

Code: Tree of Life: Does the Tree of Life Have a Message? Yes. But, you have to read numbers like words. Ancient civilizations did it. The art was called by the Greek word, “Gematria”. Check it out online. Musicians have a knack for numbers. Look at how the emanations on the Tree of Life are numbered in columns.

The 10 emantions and 22 paths of the "Tree of Life" in plain view
Code: We will look at the numbers of the emanations. Then I will translate the numbers to words. This is the art called “Gematria”. This art was practice throughout the Middle east at one time.



  • Look at the vertical columns, We have 3, 5 and 8 on the left. 1,6,9, and 10 are in the central column. Finally,2,4, and 7 are on the right side.
  • Next, multiply the numbers in each column. We have 3 x 5 x 8 = 120. Then, 1 x 6 x 9 x 10 = 540.  Finally, 2 x 4 x 7 = 56.
  • My accuracy of numbers into words by gematria can be double checked on line. Or, by anyone  knowledgeable in Hebrew. Finally, by the rules of “colel” a phrase or word may be altered, in when necessary by one(1). It essence is still kept in tact. This is amply explained in the writings of John Michell. See his View Over Atlantis and City of Revelation.
  • Decoding the Tree of Life
    We will trace psalm 119’s length of 176 lines  to a measure given on the Tree of Life. Heinrich Schutz set this psalm to music.

    Tableau de Hammerh of showing a woman praying Psalm 119.

    This psalm was chosen byTableau de Hammerh for Sunday services from his Benedictine rule of 530AD.

With the above three points in mind we find that:

  • ירושלים  (Jerusalem) has a numerical equivalent (gematria) of 596 Adding the products of the middle and right pillars we have: 540 + 56 = 596 or Jerusalem
  • יִשְׂרָאֵל (“Israel“) has a numerical value of 541. The equals the middle pillar plus one allowed for the rule of “colel” as per John Michell (City of Revelation & View Over Atlantis)
  • A theme of my blogs is how holy sites were built by established vibrations per second of set musical tones of the diatonic scale.  They used the vibrations per second of these tones and transferred to the measuring unit of the given culture. Tonal vibrations  of the diatonic scale are listed by Issac Asimov  in On Physics. The sum of the products of the left pillar and right pillar set the diatonic tone E at 660: 120 + 540 = 660.
  • Psalm 119 has the most lines- 176. The products of the left and right pillars added together total 176. 120 + 56 = 176. Also, as John Michell points out in his works: The ratio of measure in antiquity was 176:175. A.E. Berriman in his Historical  Metrology also discusses this topic.
  • אָרוֹן קׄדֶש- The Holy Ark has a Hebrew gematria of 661. As Michell stated, one is allowed for “colel”. Its 660 equals the sum of the product of the left and middle pillar: 540 + 120 = 660.
  • On the square of 3 x 3, featured image, the total of 15 can be found in 8 ways: Two diagonally, three horizontally and thee vertically. 8 x 15 = 120. That is the product of the pillar  numbers on the right as 3 x 5 x 8 = 120.
  • עבר The three letter root for Hebrew is ayin, veis and reisch. It totals 272. The universal measure of the megalithic yard is 2.72 feet It is derived from the equation 5 x 6/ 5 + 6 or 30/11 = approximates one megalithic yard. It means to pass or cross over as Abraham did when he came to Canaan. The right column on the Tree becomes 2 x 4 x  7 when the numbers are multiplied. The product is 56. We have just seen how five and six form the root of the word, Hebrew. The rose of 5 petals and the lily of 6 formed the basis of religious philosophy in the Medieval Ages. Read my blog on the subject

Code: Does the Tree of Life Have a Message? The answer is yes. It beautifully presents key concepts by numbers in Judaism and the Bible.  Also, music is the guide that can lead us on the path of peace and beauty. Stay tuned for more blogs.
