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
Panacea – what is its meaning? In Greek mythology, she(Greek Πανάκεια, Panakeia) 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:
Panacea (the goddess of universal health).
Hygieia (“Hygiene”, the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness, and sanitation).
Aglæa/Ægle (the goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence, and adornment).
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.
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 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. .

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.”
