Geometrical Theology Relates to Number Squares. God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. This was stated by Nicholas Cuse- Nicholas of Cusa (1401 – August 11, 1464) was a Germanphilosopher, theologian, jurist, astronomer, cardinal and mystic of the Catholic Church. . Later Voltaire quoted the same definition. Voltaire rejected Blaise Pascal‘s philosophy of man’s depravity. He tried to steer a middle course: That meant that man was able to find moral virtue through reason. Because of this criticism of the church, he was denied burial in church ground. I use these two examples for the quote. for two contrasting reasons
This is because the quote by Nicholas was religious and traditional.
Voltaire’s was not religious in a traditional sense.
This blog offers a novel interpretation of the above quote. An archaeologist digs for lost artifacts. A philosopher digs for lost knowledge. There is only one number square whose center is everywhere. You could say the center even usurps the circumference when the square is encased by concentric circles. This is as illustrated in the featured picture.
How Geometrical Theology Relates to the 4 x 4 Number Square
Both the center and circumference of the of the 4 x 4 number square are filled by the essence of number 34. First, at the central point of any even number square are four numbers. This first even 4 x 4 square is the prime example. 7,10,11 and 6 occupy the center. Center’s sum = 34. Any straight row of 4 numbers also totals 34. This also applies to the four rows that make the perimeter. Hence each of the the four quadrants of the circle around this number square total 34. Thirty-four is one of the Fibonacci numbers.
Center total: 7 + 10 + 6 + 11 = 34.
Quadrant Perimeter totals:
4 + 14 + 15 + 1 =34.
1 + 12 + 8 + 13 = 34
13 + 3 + 2 + 16 = 34
Finally, 16 + 5 + 9 + 4 = 34.
More on Geometrical Theology Based on Number 34
If God’s center is everywhere, that means it is also defines the circumference. The center is literally everywhere in this number square. Therefore, this number square becomes the numerical symbolic translation of the featured quote: God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. The center by number 34 occupies the quadrants of the the circumference. Also see internal link below.
Enhancing Jupiter Creates Harmony. With this blog I again try to delve into the destroyed past. So much has been ruined. For one, the Library at Alexandria was burned down during Roman times. It was the jewel par excellence of ancient knowledge. In general, conquerors made it a habit to destroy even traces of their subdued civilizations. Another example was ancient Carthage. It also was subdued by the Romans. About 50,000 Carthaginians were sold into slavery. The city was set ablaze and razed to the ground. Only ruins and rubble remain (feature picture). How did philosophers of the past attempt to prevent such occurrences?
Jupiter was thought to the great benefactor of mankind. This is symbolized in the woodcarving of the listless angel pictured below. It displays the classic 4 x 4 number square in the background. Ancient civilizations used this number code to call on the beneficial effects of Jupiter. In the carving, this square is mounted underneath the bell. The bell meant to draw her attention to it. When it does, she will cheer up. Being a musician, I have blogged extensively about harmony. Reading the 3 internal links below will offer background on this little known topic.
Enhancing Jupiter – This planet was associated with luck, fortune and wealth.
Plato refers to the 272 as the number of harmony in his Canon. Harmonia was the wife of Cadmus. Her name in Greek, spelled with the letters add up to 272. This is by the rules of gematria. Here is the connection between the 4 x 4 number square and harmony. Total all the numbers from 1 – 16 on this square. The sum is 136. Multiply 136 x 2 = 272. Harmony is therefore the twice enhanced value square of Jupiter. That poses a question: Is a person who finds harmony in his is life twice as happy as one who has only found wealth?
Quadripartite Division of Time as an Ancient Tool.The Vikings were fierce warriors and pirates. They built magnificent fortresses,” Søren Sindbæk, a professor of medieval archaeology at Aarhus University in Denmark, said in a statement .
I (David) blog a lot about quadripartite division- 1.e. division into four parts. This goes back to Biblical Paradise. This ideal state was at the crossing of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
Why division into four? Ancient to prehistoric civilizations were all about number squares. At the heart of all evenly numbered squares are four squares. In the illustration below they numbers 10, 11, 6, and 7. This is the ancient 4 x 4 square of Jupiter. It was thought to invoke the influence of that planet. Jupiter represented success in action. That action could be military or, simply, business. Or, the Jupiter effect could even apply to interpersonal relationships. Odd number squares, by contrast, have only one square at the center. Many blogs about number squares are on DSOworks.com. The blogs are easy to access. Press all posts. They will lead the way back to a lost and forgotten Golden Age,
Why is Understanding the Quadripartite Division of Time Beneficial?
The following analyzes just one aspect of fourfold cyclic time. Many factors cause cyclic activity. The Moon is a great factor. The Sun is another. Obviously, from the graph below, sunspot activity is low. Eventually I will explore through future blogs many of the cycles that can affect us. Key- understanding time can help us to control the effects of cyclic activity. Prof. A.L. Tchijevsky wrote a treatise on sunspot and human activity. It is called: Investigation into the Relationship Between the Sunspot Activity and the Course of Universal Historical Process from V Century B.C. to the Present Day. His chart had the following:
Statistics from 72 countries.
Time span was 500 B.C. to 1922 A.D.
Mass excitement occurs in cycles of 11 years. This corresponds with sunspot activity. His mass excitement statistics included wars, revolutions, riots, expeditions, and mass migrations. A simple spiral can help us understand the cycle’s four states.
The cycle is low. The spiral is unwound. Everything is relaxed.
The cycle winds up. Things begin to tighten
The cyclic peak is reached. That equates with maximum trouble and chaos.
The cycle unwinds. Things go back to relaxed.
What does the quadripartite circle accomplish?
We can transfer the fourfold effect of the cycle onto something physical: A circle, spiral or even a maze. The spiral can be a winding ascending road. The circle can be a Viking fortress. The maze can be shaped from bushes in a garden. In other words, physical models take on the psychological effect of cycles. That gives the possibility of live our lives calmly and peacefully. We can actually rebuild a lost Golden Age of Peace and Plenty.
Jupiter Offers Square Deal and Then Some. The word Jupiter translates to Jovial King. Jovial, according to Webster, is characterized by hearty, joyous humor. We all need this influence in our lives. The question becomes, how did Jupiter acquire this meaning? And, what can we do to become more hearty and joyous in this trying day and age?
Leader of the Olympian Gods; Jupiter means “Jovial King” and/or “Father of Thunder”.
Answer to Jupiter Offers Square Deal lies in its magnificent number square of antiquity
Every planet had its own number square. This squares were used to invoke the influence of their particular planet. Jupiter’s was 4 x 4. Below is the traditional arrangement. It hides a special code of numbers. This was called the Fibonacci series. Numbers are pictured and described below.
Jupiter Offers – so where are 13 and 21 in the 4 x 4 number square?
The 4 x 4 number square hides the numbers of a special group of numbers. It is called the Fibonacci series. The numbers are set. The graph above starts the series. Numbers grow by successive addition. In the Fibonacci series we have 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,34…Of course the series continues to infinity. Life favors the ratio of any two consecutive numbers. As the series develops, the ratio gets closer and closer to 1.618… That number is called by the Greek word, phi, or the Golden Section. A definitive phi number can never be exactly reached. It is an irrational number that extends to infinity. Could that be why man will always fall short of immortality?
Back to the 4 x 4 Number Square
Look at the numbers vertically two at the time: 16 + 5 = 21. Underneath, 9 + 4 = 13. Next, 3 + 10 = 13. Then, 13 + 8 = 21. Next 12 + 1 =13 etc,.The entire square is filled with Fibonacci numbers 13 and 21. . Be assured that our Neolithic ancestors knew everything that you are now reading about.
They also knew that: (1) The potentiality of the entire number square is dormant in the central four numbers. Here’s how: Cross multiply the central four numbers. Then add the two products as follows: (10 x 7) + (6 x 11) = 136. (2) The 4 x 4 number square uses the numbers 1 through 16. Add these numbers. Their sum is 136. That is the same as the cross multiplication products and their sums just given. Not only does this number square of Jupiter evoke infinite potential for growth, but it also harbors within its central four numbers the potentiality for that growth. Our ancestors tapped into this knowledge.
The square was understood at least 11,000 years ago. Number squares played a large part in lost and forgotten civilizations right here on planet Earth. That’s one of the major themes of our DSOworks.com website. Music is its main theme. I believe that a peaceful civilization can be restored by the study of music and by revitalizing lost knowledge.
Jupiter Number Square Sets Legal Ages. Each planet was once connected to a number square. Here is the Saturn list. Saturn is 3 x 3. Jupiter is 4 x 4. Mars is 5 x 5. Sun is 6 x 6. Venus is 7 x 7. Mercury is 8 x 8. Moon is 9 x9.
Next, what are some primary legal ages? Of course, there can be quite a few depending on the culture. The two I pick belong to the 4 x 4 number square. They are of significance in our western civilization. These ages are 13 and 21. This is when a person takes reponsibility for their own actions. In Judaism 13 it is the year of the Bat and Bar Mitzvahs. Then the legal age in many western cultures is 21. People are considered to be grown up or adults.
By Jupiter, so where are 13 and 21 in the 4 x 4 number square?
The 4 x 4 number square hides the numbers of a special group of numbers. It is called the Fibonacci series. The numbers are set and always the same. The graph above starts the series. Numbers grow by successive addition. We have 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,34…Of course the series contnues to infinity. Life favors the ratio of any two consequtive numbers as it develops. The ratio gets closer and closer to 1.618… The true number of phi can never be exactly reached. It is an irrational number. Could that be why man falls short of immortality? This ratio has a special name, “phi”. It is also called the Golden Section of Golden ratio.
Back to the 4 x 4 Number Square
Look at the numbers vertically two at the time: 16 + 5 = 21. Underneath, 9 + 4 = 13. Next, 3 + 10 = 13. Then, 13 + 8 = 21. The entire square is filled with Fibonacci numbers. Success is action, by tradtion, comes by this number series. Our Neolithic ancestors knew everything that you are reading about here. This was atleast 11,000 years ago. Number squares played a large part in lost civilizations. I believe that a peaceful civilization can be restored by revitalizing such lost knowledge.
