Found Egyptian Remen Source is a Simple Number Square. The Egyptian remen of 1.2165 feet is the basis of a long line of ancient measures. Measures are related to the remen by the square root of simple whole numbers. John Michell explores this in great depth in his City of Revelation. It is inChapter 10, The Canon of Measures. The best known are
(1) 1.72 foot Egyptian royal cubit.
(2) The basic 1.2165 foot Egyptian remen.
(3) What is new is my own discovery at Blue Stone Mountain: How the remen ties into the 3 x 3 number square.
Found Egyptian Remen Source is the Multi-Dimensional 3 x 3 Number Square
Most look at the 3 x 3 square and see it surrounded by 8 numbers. I was told to look at the perimeter by single, double and triple numbers. That totals 20 sets of numbers. Then the perimeters totals are 40, 440 and 2220 (see diagram above). Let P1 stand for 40. P2 stand for 440. P3 stand for 2220. We take (P1 ) + (P2) + (P3) ÷ P3 = 1.2162…Quite close to the numbers in feet that comprise the remen of 1.2165. Within 3/10,000 of a foot! The reason for exactly why this 1.2162… feet was taken as 1.2165 feet is a matter for conjecture.
So what about the central number 5 from he number square? We haven’t accounted for it yet. Not only does the perimeter figure into ancient measures, so does central five. This is on 3 levels with the Great Pryramid:
The missing tip is 5 cubits in height.
55 cubits defines the Egyptian Great cubit. It is the basis of measure of the Great Pyramid. Its base is 8 Great Cubits. The truncated height is 5 Great Cubits.
The blue print of the Great Pyramid is formed by two interlocking circles. They are drawn interlocking center to center. This is called the vesica piscis (vessel of the fish). The diameter of each circle is 555 feet. For those who think that this is insignificant or random, consider: George Washington’s Monument in Washington D.C. makes use of the repeated “fives”. It is 555.5 feet tall. File:Vesica piscis.png
Why am I writing this blog? Because I sincerely believe that reactivating the 3 x 3 number square will bring about a new Golden Age of peace and plenty. The 3 x 3 number square shows what sciences and arts of man have in common. What we all share is the key to the Golden Age. Let’s open it together.
Randomness of the 12 Tone Technique Also Applies to our math. The initial proponent of this technique was Arnold Schoenberg (1874–1951), Austrian-American composer. The technique is a means of ensuring that all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are sounded as often as one another in a piece of music while preventing the emphasis of any one note through the use of tone rows, orderings of the 12 pitch classes. All 12 notes are thus given more or less equal importance, and the music avoids being in a key.
Randomness of Music and Numbers
Our modern use of numbers parallels the 12 tone technique. The 12 tone technique is best described as willful randomness. Antiquity thought of numbers one to nine as belonging to a system. It was called the 3 x 3 number square. In our music that is set in the circle of fifths, this is called a key signature. The numerical key signature of the ancients was the vehicle of the number square. They favored 7 primary number squares. This could equate with 7 key signatures. The simplest and first was 3 x 3. Their favored squares ranged from 3 x 3 to 9 x 9. They did use higher numeric squares. However, the basic 7 were most common. Sacred prayers in Judaism coded higher number squares. Two favored ones were 13 x 13 and 17 x 17. I have blogs on this subject on DSOworks.com. Some 10,000 years ago, and maybe further back in time, all numbers belonged to unified systems. They were also connected to words. For example, “order” could be 264. Each symbol of the ancients represented a letter and a number. There were no separate letters and numbers. Their unity called by a Greek name, gematria. Look it up online. At one time there was no randomness. You can sample ancient unity on the 3 x 3 number square picture below.
Any two opposite numbers around the perimeter total 10. Examples are 4 + 6= 10 ; 9 + 1 = 10; etc.
The average of any two opposite numbers around the perimeter is 5. Five is the core number.
Each number contributes to a perimeter whose total around #5 equals 40.
The total of all the numbers on the square is 45. . (That equals the sum of the numbers from 1 to 9).
Each number is set so that any row of three totals 15. This is true vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
The high level of organization of numbers in antiquity is staggering. Today, with our modern sciences, we totally lack such an organizing system for our numbers. I believe that result is social conflict. The genius of Arnold Schoenberg made a powerful musical statement as to where our culture was heading. Let us return to the way of the ancients. Reviving number squares is what many of my blogs are about. Enjoy the illuminating sample of the 12 tone technique below!
Eureka! was the exclamation of Archimedes of Syracuse. It translates from Greek: “I found it!” He noticed that the level of the water in the bath he was taking rose as he got in. Archimedes then realized this knowledge could be used to determine not only the volume the King’s crown; but if it was made of real gold. The King had expressed a strong wish to know.
MY OWN SEARCH THAT LEAD TO, EUREKA!
Some 2,200 years later I, David Ohrenstein, had been looking for the “grain of mustard seed” from which everything grows. It has been a life long, personal quest. A spirit, that I call the Oquaga Spirit, verbally gave me the answer. This spirit has a haunt around Oquaga Lake in the Catskill Mountains near Deposit New York. The lake is spring fed. It is perched at an elevation of about 2,000 feet. The next 30 years I passed, intensely researching her words: “If you want to know the source of all the sciences and arts, look more closely at the 3 x 3 number square.”
I now believe what the spirit told me is truth. The 3 x 3 number square is the grain of mustard seed from which everything grows. The spirit illuminated hidden number codes within the walls of its tick-tack-toe board. It even explained double and spiral coding. As a result, I have written over 1000’s of pages. Her wisdom redefines knowledge in the sciences and arts. I believe this knowledge will lead to a new Golden Age of “peace and plenty”. I spent 15 summer seasons on Oquaga Lake as the pianist at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. The Oquaga Spirit was a native American Indian of the Lennie Lenape tribe. Their encampments included this lake. Women were in charge and had the power.
Enjoy this free sample of the Oquaga’s Spirit’s wisdom through her poetry. The complete book is available as a product on DSOworks.com for $2.99. It has 100 pages of poetry with pictures. Or, if funds are tight, enjoy this free youtube recording of some of the poetry she dictated. I’ve memorized all her words in the book. Why not invite the Oquaga Spirit to your next program or party? As a pianist, I will be posting a one hour DVD of me playing the music of Claude Debussy in the near future.
