Panacea is Found in Our Civilization’s Music

Panacea is Found in Our Civilization’s Music. Originally I posted this on our other website: Reviving Antiquity@aol.com, however, I feel it is common to both of these sites. Certainly, in the past many composers of music borrowed from themselves. For example, in music, the BACH motif is a motif.   Its notes are a succession of notes important or characteristic to a piece.  These notes are B flat, A, C, B natural. In German musical nomenclature the note B natural is named H and the B flat named B. It forms Johann Sebastian Bach‘s family name.

So, Here is My Panacea Quote from Reviving Antiquity

Many composers quoted themselves in different works. This is especially true for J.S, Bach. These notes sound his name in music.

Panacea – what is its meaning? In Greek mythology,  she (Greek ΠανάκειαPanakeia) was a goddess of universal remedy. This remarkable entity was the daughter of Asclepius and Epione.  With her sisters each performed a facet of Apollo‘s art:[1]

  • Panacea (the goddess of universal health).
  • Hygieia (“Hygiene”, the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness, and sanitation).
  • Iaso (the goddess of recuperation from illness)
  • Aceso (the goddess of the healing process).
  • Aglæa/Ægle (the goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence, and adornment).
  • Panacea.jpg
    Our featured goddess helping the sick. The Veronese physician J. Gazola created this picture as part of a larger woodcut in 1716.
    Our musical circle of fifths is as good as the Greek goddesses for curing ailments.

    It’s time to cure the ills of mankind. Music, when properly applied, can do just that. Best of all, it’s free. Also the knowledge I write about has the capacity improve the interpretation of music by a searching musician. That analysis is for the future. First notice there are 12 basic key signatures. The bottom three are called “enharmonic.”

  •  C# major is merely another letter name for Db major.
  • F# major is another name for Gb major
  • Cb is another name for B major.

This means there are basically 12 key signatures. I have my reasons for aligning the 12 key signatures with the 12 zodiac signs. Many have done this before me, but I feel my way is most correct. My reasons will be explained over time.

Effecting Panacea

Let’s discuss heart problems. To cure these problems listen to classical music in the key of one flat. That, as you can see from the diagram, is F major and its relative minor of D. Why classical?  Quite often, classical music is defined by its  key signature. i.e. : Symphony in F major, Quartet in D minor, Trio in D minor,  etc. The minor key alleviates the sordid condition. The major maintains good health in the area needed. More will be forthcoming. Keep checking.

 

 

 

Artistic Dozen

Artistic Dozen Stems from a Well Known Model

Artistic Dozen Stems from a Well Known Model. It is called the 3 x 3 number square. This square has been the subject of many blogs on DSOworks.com. This compartmentalized square, together with its numbers, provides a  pattern for several artistic models:

  • The 6 warm and 6 cold colors on the color wheel.
  • The basic 6 sharp and 6 flat key signatures of the musical Circle of Fifiths. .

Artistic Dozen Crosses Over t0 Architecture

Holy sites, temples and town squares were built using measures it holds by opposite polarities. Professionally I am a composer, arranger and pianist. Recently I gave a concert in Circleville, Ohio. I was overjoyed to see the former location of one such site:

Mysterious Diameter Measure at the Hopewell Circle – DSO Works

In the link  above, I explain how the number square applies to an ancient American Indian site.  To do this, the post explains one of the number square’s hidden codes.   No #1100 seems be on the square. That is because you must work its polarities.

Guess where it is hiding? This American Indian site is circular. It partakes of diameter of the 1100 diameter by feet.

The 3 x 3 number square explains where 1100 comes from. This square of numbers was the guiding vision of a universal, lost Golden Age. Its 12 struts offered structural framework. Many of these civilizations had a 12 tribe structure.  The numbers, together with their countless hidden codes, explain so many questions that seem unanswerable. The books of John Michell covers the universal 12 tribe aspect.

The Artistic Dozen for the Color Wheel

  • Three Primary Colors – Red, Blue and Yellow. …
  • Three Secondary Colors – Orange, Green, and Violet. …
  • The remaining six, Intermediate Colors – Blue-Violet; Red-Violet; Red-Orange; Yellow-Orange; Yellow-Green; Blue-Green.

Next, the Music

Image result for picture of the 12 basic key signatures
Looks like 14 key signatures, Because of enharmonic keys, there are really only 12. Two sets have two names: F# and Gb are played on the same piano keys. Db and C# are also played on the same keys. . Thus,  14  – 2 = 1

Artistic Dozen – Here is its Source:

Artistic dozen is structure by a number square
The numbers give specific meaning to the 12 struts of this number square.
Four lines are trisected to create 6 horizontal and 6 vertical line segments. These become the 6 positive and 6 negative forces or groupings. They give structure to our thoughts, our history and the Universe. Filled in with numbers, they offer specifics.
New Musical Theory Model

New Musical Theory Model Based on the Dodecahedron

New Musical Theory Model Based on the Dodecahedron. We know about the circle of fifths. A quick review: In music theory, the circle of fifths (or circle of fourths) is the relationship among the 12 tones of the chromatic scale.  It shows their corresponding key signatures.  Also found arethe associated major and minor keys. Musical tones use 7 letters of the alphabet. They are A-B-C-D-E-F-G. These letters repeat over and over to encompass the full key signature span.

Standard Musical Circle of Fifths
Circle of fifths show the relationship of major keys and their minor relationships.
 At the top of the circle, the key of C Major has no sharps or flats. Starting from the apex and proceed clockwise by ascending fifths.  The key of G has one sharp. The key of D has 2 sharps….. Proceed counterclockwise from the apex by descending fifths: The key of F has one flat. The key of B has 2 flats…… At the bottom of the circle, the sharp and flat keys overlap, showing pairs of enharmonically equivalent key signatures.

Mesolithic Times Had a Unique Standard

Click on the above internal link. It offers background on the 5 Platonic solids. The Platonic Solid we are concerned with here is the dodecahedron. In antiquity it symbolized the overall shape of the Universe. By this rational,we live in a musical Universe. As for the featured picture, note: The major keys are written in the center of each pentagon. Start in consecutive order (from C major) from its lower left point. The tone on the lower right completes the 5 tones. In the case of “C” major, it is the tone “G”. This lower right begins the next pentagon. It is completed at “D” …

  • Ascend 5 consecutive tones with each pentagon.
  • The fifth tone on the lower right of each pentagon defines the key signature name of the next pentagon. This goes for the complete cycle:  “G major, D major, A major…”
  • The 12 pentagons make the complete cycle at F major. “F” major’s lower right hand tone is “C”.  The outline of the dodecahedron is complete at this point.

 

Plus one factor is prominent

Musical Tones and Linear Measures

Musical Tones and Linear Measures. They run parallel.  All musicians who  practice  major and minor scales; or play music in the 12 basic key signatures are working with the stuff that our cosmos is made of. The 7 known planets were represented by their own unique number square.  The simplest and first number square that can be constructed is 3 x 3. Its traditional representation is in the featured image above.   It is the basic grid of  truth found wherever there are advanced civilizations. Many cultures of antiquity used the featured image above to arrive at measures for their holy sites. Musical vibrations per second come from this same grid. These include A-440 and E-660. This has been the subject of many of my blogs.  My poetry book, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks will be available shortly on the products page of DSOworks.com. A female spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe shared the secrets of this number square with me. For years I worked as a piano player in upstate New York where the tribe was once located. She also dictated the entire book of poetry. As I say in the poem called “The Oquaga Spirit”: So much she needed an ear, she ignored my tranquility.”

 

Planet, Saturn, measures, Saturn'S Rings, Solar System, Aurora
The 3 x 3 square of numbers (featured image) was believed to invoke the  qualities associated with Saturn. Saturn was thought to set boundaries and limitations. It was the giver of law. However, once you know the hidden codes that lie in its walls, it is the most liberating of all the number squares. 

HERE IS A SAMPLE LISTING  OF MEASURES DERIVED FROM THE 3 X 3 NUMBER SQUARE OF WITH SATURN

  • The Egyptian cubit of 1.2165…feet; the 1.71818…foot Egyptian cubit; the 1.728 foot Egyptian cubit.
  • The 12″ foot, 36″ yard, 660 foot furlong, 16.5 feet rod, 1.760 yards in a mile, the number of square feet in an acre- 43,560.
  • the Chinese p’u of 9 inches, Akbar’s yard of 33″ the Roman pace of 2.433 feet

Our civilization will once again be able to harmonize in a wonderful and enjoyable vision. The basic paradoxical truth is this: That which sets laws and limitations can also offer the most freedom, harmony and joy. It truly is like a “grain of mustard seed.”
