Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients. Lost civilizations assigned numbers to concepts. Inspiration and Imagination were once defined by number 1080. Author John Michell has written voluminously on this subject. His take expresses Einstein’s thoughts. However, his take is in terms of an Earth Spirit that encircles world.
For many it can be extremely difficult to distinguish between between the state of being inspired and uncontrolled imagination. I will relate it to an article in the New York Times. It is front page in the Arts & Leisure section. Date is Sunday June 10, 2018. Suffice it to say, aspiring can draw from imagination.
Inspiration Can Have Controlled and Uncontrolled Aspects
The New York Times article is entitled “Home is Where the Horror Is.” It talks about how in cinema today stating: Horror has never been more bankable and celebrated than it is now. Michell, in his City of Revelation, discusses the difference between being inspired and wild imagination. Basically, the number 1080 applies to both. Michell has an entire chapter on this number. He writes about how: “The mystic’s vision and the the lunatics nightmare derive from the same source.” Most important, he writes, “the individual alone is responsible for the different forms they assume.”
So What Causes the Lunatic’s Nightmare?
When 1080 takes on the lunatics nightmare aspect, there is a cause. It is usually a reaction against excessive power and brute force being used to solve problems. Tone down the brute force, and the lunatic’s nightmares will also lessen. This internal link below explains a little more about number 1080.
Translating Geometry to Words and Numbers. My advance scout for a number of my blogs about antiquity has been the Reverend John Michell. I was introduced to his writings in 1970. It was The View Over Atlantis. The key is a subject that few have even heard of: “Gematria.” Hear is Wikipedia’s take on the subject. It offers some background for this blog.
Gematria/ɡəˈmeɪtriə/ (Hebrew: גמטריא גימטריא, plural גמטראות or גמטריאות, gematriot) originated as an Assyro-Babylonian-Greek system of alphanumeric code or cipher. Later adopted into Jewish culture. It assigns numerical value to a word. Names or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to the number. This may apply to Nature, a person’s age, or even the calendar year.
Similar systems, many inspired by Hebrew gematria, have been used in other languages. These include i.e. Greek isopsephy and Arabic abjad numerals.
An example of Hebrew gematria is the word chai (life). It has two letters. They add up to 18. This has made 18 a “lucky number” among the Jewish people. Gifts of money in multiples of 18 are traditional for this reason.
Translating Geometry of the Dodecahedron
In Hebrew gematria the noun for “Israel” translates to 541. A regular pentagon has 5 vertexes of 108° each vertex. That totals 540°. The additional “1” in Israel (541) יִשְׂרָאֵל represents the the core of Israel- One God. Here is the process:
Each of the 12 tribes belong to Israel (541).
They each receive their own pentagon on the dodecahedron. This figure is one of the 5 Platonic solids.
There are the only 5 possible regular polyhedrons that can be constructed. All corners of these five must be tangent to a sphere’s surface. A sixth cannot be constructed.
Keep in mind: At one time many nations had 12 tribe cultures. Jewish tradition has kept it alive. Again, I refer to the Reverend John Michell. This time the book is the 12 Tribe Nations. Link is below. My contribution is illustrating Israel’s parallel to the dodecahedron. Also, below is my internal link of how our musical system relates to this same dodecahedron.
Numerical Meaning by Delving into Words. Today, numbers are adjectives. They define the quantity of a noun. Here are some simple examples: She has one cat. He has three birds. Our neighbor has two trees in the front yard. In the remote past, numbers represented both qualities and quantities. Furthermore, in China a numerical tradition of the Lo Shu survives. It is described below. Are numbers quantities or are they a lot more? That depends on you civilization.
21st century man prefers numbers as adjectives. One side works with music and math. The other deals with words. Currently, most become quite uncomfortable in trying to see numbers as nouns. There are exceptions. Musicians give numbers more meaning. Some examples are working with the 8 bar phrase. The 32 bar period had its own meaning. . Another is animation by 3/4 or by 2/4 time. The prime number square is the 3 x 3. It is the featured picture. Genesis is all about secret codes of this number square. So is the Chinese Lo Shu. Likewise, Greek mythology used this square of numbers. I must ask, who is more primitive? Someone who understands and works with all its hidden codes, or those who are ignorant of them?
When placed in balanced mathematical relationships, numbers are more than adjectives. Such is the case with the featured picture. Please read the internal link (1st sentence of Genesis) before continuing. Now let’s do the following. The sum of the numbers 1 to 9 totals 45. Next 45² = 2025. In many ancient languages, letters doubled as numbers. There was no brain split between the two sides and two disciplines. This was called gematria. Information is available online. Also, on this website I quote the Reverend John Michell. He and Robin Heath amply cover gematria in their works.
For our last thought for numerical meaning in this blog, take 2025. Again, this is 45².
In Greek add the gematria of 3 gods: Zeus = 612. Apollo = 1060. Hermes = 353. 612 + 1060 + 353 = 2025.
Gematria of words were often pyramided. Other DSOworks.com blogs deal with this topic. The four pyramided letters for “Torah” in Hebrew is 2023. Tav = 400,Tav + vav = 406. Tav + vav + reisch = 606. The full Hebrew word as tav, vav, reisch, and hei = 611. Thus. 400 + 406 + 606 + 611 + 2 = 2025. There are 2 additional commandments added to the 611 by tradition. With the + 2 we have: 2023 + 2 = 2025. Again, this is 45².
There once was a golden age. Its guiding vision was the featured number square. This time of milk and honey can now be regained by the knowledge of how this basic number square functions..
Plato is my friend — Aristotle is my friend — but my greatest friend is truth.
So What Are Ten Eighty Musings?
First, to define 1080. Numbers, in the lost past, had associations. 1080 was lunar and terrestrial. The establish four elements were earth, air fir and water. 1080 was water. It expressed the Moon’s influence on the cycles of nature.With the psyche, it represents intuition. Ten eighty guides the unconscious mind.
So where does 1080 figure into today’s theme? First, let’s look at the ancient attitude to “zero”. It wasn’t a real number. It was synthetic. Ten was a combination of two opposite numbers on the 3 x 3 number square. Therefore, past civilizations could read 1080 as 18. They had the option of reading it as 108.
So how were Ten Eighty Musings Used By Advanced, Lost Civilizations, Including Atlantis?
Day of Week
Note the Moon. Its diameter was taken on 1080 miles. Its metal was silver. Note silver’s standard atomic weight average of 107.8682(2).
Megalithic Yard Links Tie Into Number Squares. Before reading this post, here is a key concept. The 2.72 foot megalithic yard confirms prehistoric knowledge of the exponential factor of growth. Reverend John Michell writes in his The View Over Atlantis: “The ratio 2.72 is an approximation of the incommensurable figure “e”, the variant by which a logarithmic spiral is set out and a factor in the development of natural growth.” Here is a second important concept: The megalithic yard is also expressed as a fraction: 30/11. That translates to 2.7272727…The difference between 2.72 feet and 2.727272…feet allows for a slight variation in its length. This was common ancient practice.
The blog brings up a number of questions.
Was there an advanced civilization in the past?
Was their IQ beyond our current day comprehension, even with our advanced technology?
Finally, why was the megalithic yard hidden by code in the two prominent names for God? – In the Torah these names were Yahweh and Elohim. Please read the quote from two previous blogs for background.
Tag: megalithic inch
HOW NUMBERS AND LETTERS SHARE A UNITY IN HEBREW
Ancient Hebrew has no separate number system. A letter and a number shared the same symbol. Contrarily, in English we have letters of the alphabet. We also have digits.
Every word in Hebrew had a numerical equivalent. Thus, the Hebrew letters for Elohim total 86. The Hebrew letters for Yahweh total 26.
Letters in words were often pyramided to obscure meanings: The the four letter name of God is an example that in pyramided style became: (1st tier) Yud = 10; (2nd tier) yud + hei = 15; (3rd tier) yud + hei + vav = 21; (4th tier) yud + hei + vav + hei. The four tiers total 72.
In the same manner, Elohim, when spelled with pyramided letters totals 200: (aleph = 1); (aleph & lamed = 31); (aleph + lamed + hei =36); (Aleph + lamed + hei + yud = 46); the full name is (aleph+lamed + hei + yud + mem = 86). Add these pyramided values: 1 + 31 + 36 + 46 + 86 = 200. Thus, the pyramided values of the two primary names of God total 272: 72 + 200 = 272. You can compare these secrets to the Russian Matryoshka doll.
The Tie in of God With Harmony and Measure and Megalithic Yard Links
In these computations, I allow myself a leeway. It is the difference between the 2.72 foot megalithic yard and the 2.7272727…as a repeated fraction (30÷11 megalithic yard).
Plato discusses how 272 was the great number of harmony. Read my previous blog on DSOworks.com entitled Harmony’s Number for the background.
In measure one megalithic yard = 2.72 feet
Furthermore, multiply these two pyramided names of God. The product is the total number of 12 inch feet in the classic megalithic mile. This measure is found all over the ancient world: 72 x 200 = 14,400 numbers the feet in a megalithic mile.
So What About Megalithic Yard Links and Number Squares?
(1) Start with 50. Any 2 opposite numbers on the 7 x 7 number square of Venus total 50. (2) Multiply 50 x the 2.72 foot megalithic yard. 50 x 2.72 = 136. That totals the sum of all the numbers on the 4 x 4 number square of Jupiter which is 1 -16. (3) Next, in order, multiply 136 x 2.72 = 370. The equals the sum of the numbers in the perimeter of the 6 x 6 number square of the Sun. Perimeter is the outermost square with numbers. (4) Multiply 370 X 2.72(7272…) = 1008 (approximate compromise between 2.72 and the fraction given above).
A circumference with diameter 1008 is 3166. In my Sacred Engineer’s Philosophy, I totaled the names of the 12 tribes of Israel. By rules of gematria they total 3166….Finally with the last of the megalithic yard chains or links, 1008 x 2.72 = 2746. All writings refer to this number as the great number of alchemical fusion. It totals the numbers of two key number squares. Mercury totals 2080 (numbers one to 64). The Sun totals numbers 1 to 36 as 666. Thus 2080 of Mercury + the solar 666 = 2746.
Conclusion: Look at the planetary megalithic yard links we just created among the ancient magic squares of Venus, Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury. Why am I blogging about this? Because its knowledge and understanding is necessary to initiate a new Golden Age of Plenty and Peace,
Universal Egyptian Remen is Found Throughout the Cosmos. It’s fun to speculate. Here are my thoughts on the subject:
First, the remen is 1.2165…feet. Measurement around the globe was in fact once based on this remen. Jay Hambidge discovered the remen roots of measure. He called his discovery the Canon of Measures. This was at the turn of the 20th century. An excellent hard copy explanation is found in John Michell’s, City of Revelation. Chapter Ten is called “The Canon of Measures.” Or, look Hambidge’s Canon up on line.
So where did the remen come from? The 3 x 3 number square. It is traditionally arranged below in a manner connected to the planet Saturn.
The Universal Egyptian Remen Comes From a Formula Involving the 3 x 3 Number Square
Work with your calculator to double check my arithmetic.
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). The inch is of ancient origin. Cubic inches of gold were standard weights. Samples exist from Greece and Egypt. They are in the British Museum.
Thus, the Universal Egyptian Remen Comes From a Universal Number Square
עוֹלָם- is the Hebrew spelling of the noun “Universe”.
In Hebrew letters doubled as numbers. Take the letters that make “Universe.” Ayin equals 70. Vav equals 6. Lamed equals 30. Mem equals 40. Universe in Hebrew totals 146. 70 + 6 + 30 + 40 =146. Those are the numbers of remen by inches. In antiquity numbers were freely multiplied or divided by tens. Ten was a synthetic number.
Number squares hold water anywhere in the cosmos.
The first and basic number square is 3 x 3
However, the 3 x 3 number square has infinite solutions.
The remen comes from it.
Planets were connected to number squares in antiquity.
The remen is universal. Hebraic “Universe” voices this.
Neolithic Number Eight Permeates the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Also the modern piano keyboard. Here’s how.
First use of eight (8). The featured picture illustrates an octahedron. It is a symmetrical, eight-faced, triangulated figure. All angles at their corners are 60°. Bisect the featured picture across the square at the center. The bisected octahedron then becomes two square based pyramids. The above I call the positive. The below I call the negative. All square base pyramids imply an attached equal and opposite pyramid. The mere existence of any square base pyramid, implies a counterpart. Granted, the Great Pyramid of Egypt has differing angles. It uses isosceles triangles. But, the extra four reverse-faced pyramid is still implied. When they are joined, the square bases become internal. They literally disappear. There no longer is a separated square base. We have our first usage eight. As, 4 faces (postive) + 4 (negative) faces = 8.
2nd Usage of Neolithic Number Eight
Each side of the square base measures 440 shorter Egyptian cubits. Shorter cubits are 1.718…feet. A more encompassing measure is the Great Cubit. It measures 55 shorter Egyptian cubits. Thus each side of the Great Pyramid of Egypt is 8 Great Cubits. 440⁄ 8 = 55. Reference John Michell, The View Over Atlantis. Therefore the Great Pyramid is 8 x 8 Great Cubits.
Neolithic Number Eight and Musical Octaves on the Piano Keyboard
Last, but not least. We will tie the Great Pyramid into concert note A-440 and its octaves. Its essential measures come from octaves of the concert note A 440. A higher octave doubles the vibrations per second. The lower octave cuts them in half. The lowest note on the 88-keyed piano is “A”. It vibrates 27.5 times per second. On the Steinway below, it is the furthest note to the left.
The musical keyboard of a Steinway concert grand piano
Here’s the connection. The height of the Great Pyramid is 275 cubits. Neolithic builders freely multiplied and divided by 10’s. This is because 10 ten was considered a synthetic number in antiquity. Reason: It totaled any two opposite numbers on the 3 x 3 number square. Diagram is below. 4 + 6 = 10. Or, 9 + 1 = 10. Etc. We now have the following:
The note A, underneath Steinway’s name, vibrates 440/per second.
The lowest note on the piano, also an “A” vibrates 27.5 /second.
The length of any side of the square base on the pyramid is 440 cubits.
The height of the truncated Great Pyramid of Egypt is 275 cubits
Greco-Hebraic Bond by Number 3168. This “3168” figure is virtually ubiquitous throughout the ancient world. John Michell discusses 3168 in City of Revelation. Chapter VII is entitled: 3168, the Perimeter of the Temple. He also discusses how the number ties into measurement. Here is a brief excerpt.
31,680 inches = ½ mile.
31,680 feet = 6 miles
31,680 furlongs (660 feet) = radius of the Earth (3,960 miles).
By an ancient science called gematria, the Greeks equated 3168 with “Lord Jesus Christ.” See City of Revelation p.82. This is found in the ancient Greek practice of equating numbers and letters called gematria. Hebrew does the same. So do many ancient languages.
Greco-Hebraic Bond is Quite Unique
In my featured picture above we have the blueprint and numbers of “the ancient temple plan.” Here we find the Greco-Hebraic bond. This is a source of ancient building. The idea was to draw on the numbers of this blueprint. Whatever units of measure you used didn’t matter. The idea was to draw on the numbers. It could be numbers in shorter Egyptian cubits (1.718 feet) , Palestinian cubits (2.107 feet) , English yards (3 feet) or even megalithic yards (2.72 feet). Please notice the outer hexagon numbers 528 on each side. Multiply number 528 by the 6 sides of the hexagon and we have: 528 x 6 = 3168.
You are probably wondering how or where I discovered this ancient temple plan. I found it on beautiful Oquaga Lake. While I was hiking, the Oquaga Spirit offered me the vision in the featured blog picture. This spirit has became a part of my life. This is true even when I am away from Oquaga Lake. I’ve memorized every poem this spirit has dictated. I recite the poems to myself daily. The result was the poetry book entitled, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. From the Greco-Hebraic bond to wisdom about number squares, the spirit freely offered knowledge to me. In turn I am sharing her knowledge with you.
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!
Alchemists Looked to Neolithic Number Squares. Neolithic and even earlier Mesolithic builders took their inspiration from number squares. They placed their characteristic numbers into foundations. I’ve blogged about Lepenski Vir.Here is an excerpt from one:
Lepenski Vir is Proof of the use and understanding of an Ancient Number Square. A Mesolithic site on the Blue Danube used the codes of the square of three. Lepenski Vir (Лепенски Вир, Lepen Whirl) is an important Mesolithicarchaeological site located in Serbia in central Balkanpeninsula The latest radiocarbon and AMS data suggests that the chronology of Lepenski Vir is compressed between 9500/7200-6000 BC.
The entire foundation area is framed by a roughly rectangular shape frame of 185 x 55 yards. Over 1000’s of years the same dimensions have been used for many construction projects. Some examples:
185 yards equals 555 feet. George Washington’s Monument is 555 feet tall.
The blueprint of the Great Pyramid of Egypt dates back to 2,750 B.C. It is formed by interlocking two circles center to center. They each are 555 feet feet in diameter. Author John Michell wrote extensively about this subject. I was enlightened on the hidden codes on Oquaga Lake, not by John Michell, but by a spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe on Oquaga Lake.
Here is some samples of how to find the 555 code: Take two sets of three opposite numbers. Add them together. Then divide them by two for an average: Examples are 492 + 618 = 1110. Divided by two = 555. Another example, 834 + 276 = 1110, Divided by two = 555. The middle 951 is added to itself backwards as 159 + 951 = 1110. Divided by 2 = 555. Ths simple number square is also the most complex. The builders of its ancient foundation in Yugoslavia totally understood this. Now for some mathematical fun:
ALCHEMISTS USED NUMBER SQUARES TO TURN LEAD INTO GOLD
Here’s what the alchemists thought of number squares and of this square in particular : (1) They unified all the sciences and arts. (2) They were thought to hold the elusive secret of turning lead into gold.
Each of the 7 known planets in antiquity was represented by the banner of a number square and a metal. Saturn’s was the featured 3 x 3 and metal, lead . The Sun was the 6 x 6 and gold.
The Sun, square (gold) totalled numbers 1 through 36. Add these numbers 1 + 2 + 3 …through 36. They total the Biblical 666. Saturn’s (lead) were 1 – 9. They total 45. This is 621 less than the other total However:
Let’s add the alchemical fusion of numbers to the square of Saturn. We will consider the numbers three at the time. This will be done vertically and horizontally.
(1) horizontally: 492 + 618 = 1110. 816 + 294 = 1110. Any number that crosses the cenral three at the time is its own number backwards. (This is so much like the triplet codons of the RNA-DNA code.) Thus, 357 + 753 = 1110, The horizontal total is 3330. Now let’s look at the vertical total:
(2) Vertically: 438 + 672 = 1110. 276 + 834 = 1110, 951 + 159 = 1110. The vertical total is 3330.
(3) Finally, add vertical and horizontal totals together as the alchemists did: 3330 + 3330 = 6660. Zero was a synthetic number in antiquity. It was formed by the combination of any two opposite numbers on the 3 x 3 square. The numbers on the square were the 9 prime numbers. Ten was a synthetic number combination as 9 + 1; or 3 + 7 etc. Ten was not an entity in and of itself. Thus, by the association with the not so obvious code of the square of three of Saturn; we have just equated it with the numerical properties of the square of the Sun by common number. We have just turned the lead of Saturn into the gold of the Sun. Most certainly, this is a wonderful symbolic thought. It is a refinement of baser qualities (lead) into higher and noble qualities (gold) .
