Enlightenment Often Happens in a Flash. I’ve searched for a common source for the sciences and arts. Often, I thought I had found it. But then, a new clue was found. I was sent on another chase to find the truth. This is the theme of the movie, National Treasure, with Nicolas Cage.
Paul Carus Alludes to the True Source of Enlightenment. So does Isaiah 45:2-3
Paul Carus wrote the introduction to a book: Magic Squares and Cubes by C.S. Lewis. The paperback is a 1917 publication reprint by Dover. Carus discusses how they demonstrate the symmetry of math. Number squares are the illuminator of order in our Universe. He describes how Pythagoras believed that number was the origin of all things. They unlock the seemingly unknowable. They afford a way to understand the cosmic order. Number squares “illustrate the nature of existence dominated by mathematical regularity.”
With this Having Been Said, Why Have I Been Blogging?
Since to early 1990’s I have spent summer seasons in the Catskill Mountains. My family and I resided at Blue Stone Farm in Deposit, New York. It is on a sacred mountain with rich deposits of blue stone rock. Stonehenge was built from a similar stone. It is right next to Oquaga Lake. There, a spirit made itself known to me. She was a chieftain from the Lennie Lenape tribe of Algonquin Indians. One summer we had a terrible drought. The day we had to leave the spirit appeared and said: “To know the source of the sciences and arts, look once again at the 3 x 3 number square.” I felt that this time I would have her guidance. Suddenly, the lines in the picture above disappeared. That event following started me on my almost 40 year journey. Here’s what happened:
The spirit told me to read the numbers that crossed #5 forwards and backwards. Thus, 951 + 159 = 1110.
Opposite numbers that did not cross the center had to be read three and the time. Only in opposite directions. Thus, 492 + 618 = 1110. The square has many other hidden codes.
1110 is extremely significant in antiquity. John Michell describes how the perimeter around the Great Pyramid of Egypt is 1,110 megalithic yards.
What conclusions have I been able to draw?
Neolithic cultures were, at least in part, based on number squares.
The 3 x 3 number square pictured above is the Biblical “Grain of mustard seed.”
Isaiah and many passages in the Bible allude to the squares. Here is a pointed one from Isaiah 45:2-3. First, note this congruity. Total the numbers in the above square. They equal 45 (the chapter number). Total the verses: 2 +3 =5. That is the central or key number on the square. Here is the message of the scripture for mankind: “I will go before thee; and make the crooked places straight. I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut asunder the bars of iron. And I will give you the treasure of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” Indeed, the words of the Indian spirit chieftain from the Lennie Lenape tribe deserves close consideration. Also, watch for my upcoming, updated, enlarged book of her poetry. It was written while hiking through the Catskill wilderness. The new edition will be available as a product on DSOworks.com shortly. It is called: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.
Mankind: 120 Years. They question then becomes what is the source of Genesis 6:3- And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. The Hebrew from the Torah of the Scripture are: וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, לֹא-יָדוֹן רוּחִי בָאָדָם לְעֹלָם, בְּשַׁגַּם, הוּא בָשָׂר; וְהָיוּ יָמָיו, מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה.
The source is found in the featured image given above. Hebrew uses gematria. That is the cross over been words and numbers. That cross over does not exist in modern languages. Words are one thing. Numbers are another. Current languages use separate symbols for letters and numbers. Certain old languages, as Hebrew and Greek, used the same symbols.
אָדָם – In Hebrew, generic man expressed as Adam, has a gematria of 45. That states, unequivocally, man’s source is the 3 x 3 number square. Total the numbers from 1 to 9. They equal 45.
מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה- These are the Hebraic “120 year words”. Look at the featured number square again.
Her’s how 15 can be found in 8 different ways by single numbers on the same number square. That totals the 120. Not only man(45) , but his life span(120 expressed in years) is thus connected to this fundamental number square of all number squares. The 3 x 3 number square is “The grain of mustard seed from which everything grows”.
THE 3 X 3 NUMBER SQUARE OF MANKIND GIVES THE LIFESPAN IN GENESIS 6:3
The three vertical ways are: 4 + 3 + 8. Then 9 + 5+ 1. Finally, 2 + 7 + 6.
The three horizontal ways are: 4 + 9 + 2. Then 3 + 5 + 7. Finally, 8 + 1 + 6.
Then, we have the two diagonal ways: 4+5 + 6. Then, 2 + 5 + 8.
This, 8 x 15 = 120.
I have been shown how the cultures of antiquity used these number squares. My main source and guide was the Oquaga Spirit of Oquaga Lake. The “Lady of the Lake” as I call her. My family and I spent some 15 summers by this lake in the foothills of the Catskills. The lake is on top of a mountain. This spirit dictated my book of some 100 pages of poetry with pictures now available as a product DSOworks. It is called the Oquaga Spirit Speaks. The spirit showed me the source of “truth”. She revealed the hidden number codes in this basic number square. The essence of the spirit is a female of the Lennie Lenpe American Indian tribe. The tribe dwelled around the lake at one time.
The picture is sunset on Oquaga Lake where the Oquaga Spirit resides. The spirit, a female, American Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe was the inspiration. A book of poetry, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, will be featured soon on the products page of DSOworks.com The book was dictated , word by word, by this spirit. Also, Sharon and I wrote major works on Lake Oquaga including our full length, orchestrated opera- The Cup of Cleopatra. Contact us for production costs and details. This spirit also instructed me on the 3 x3 number grid pictured below. As I wrote in the poetry book:
What a communicator was she, This sprite both blithe and free. So much she needed an ear, She ignored my tranquility.
God’s Gateway To Our Planet is a Grid of Numbers. Specifically, it is the smallest of the 7 number squares of antiquity. However, this 3 x 3 number square grows into the largest of the 7. Why are numbers of such importance? They provide the Gateway. She also enlightened me about the 3 x 3 grid.
At one time letters and numbers were represented by the same symbol. In English we currently have letter “A” and #1. Contrast this to Hebrew and ancient Greek. An example being, symbols for the letter Hebrew Alef and the Greek Alpha were also the symbols for #1.
Every letter and consequently word or phrase had a numerical equivalent.
Words were also implied by numbers. In our modern way of thinking we separate words and numbers. Consequently, words use the right side of the brain and numbers, the left. In this regard, could say that our advanced civilization has schizophrenia. That wasn’t always the case.
Great consideration was given to the numerical equivalents of Holy names: Basic names of God harmonize with the 3 x 3 number square. Here’s how:
GOD’S GATEWAY IS ON THE 3 X 3 NUMBER SQUARE
In Hebrew count letters as well as read from left to right. A two letter name for God found in the Torah is “Yah”. Please follow the letters above as I describe the following: Yah is spelled with a Yod and Hei. They are the symbols for 10 and 5 respectively. The 15 total of this name can be found in 8 ways by straight line of three numbers on the magic square: Three by vertical addition; three by horizontal addition; and two by diagonal addition.
Another key name of God is spelled with a double “yod”. It is a standard substitute for the sacred and unutterable four letter name. Again, count the letters of the above alphabet starting left and going to right in the alphabet. “Yod” is the 10th letter. Two “yods” = 2 x 10 = 20. Look at the perimeter of 8 numbers around the central 5. Even numbers are distinct from odd numbers. Even numbers occupy the corners. Odd numbers are found in between. With odds, 1 + 3 + 7 + 9 = 20. With evens: 4 + 2+ 8 + 6 = 20.
To draw a conclusion, we must regard the following:
Holy sites all over the ancient world were built by this number square. They were built by this code so they would be holy. I’ve already blogged about many of them.
Numerous authors, including John Michell, clearly state and explain how the Temple of Solomon was built by outlay, design and mathematics this number square. It hides a Masonic symbol.
Watch for more blogs in the future. Here’s another bonus. David playing Debussy’s Claire de Lune. An excerpt from my one hour of Debussy recorded at the Glen Ridge Performing Arts Center in Sarasota, Fl. The hour of Debussy will be available shortly on DSOworks.com as a product. Or, you can hear me play nightly at the Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande, Fl on their vintage Steinway grands.
Walden Pond (picture below) and Oquaga Lake (picture above)): the Parallels. Both are places where man and nature commune. Both offer a sense of harmonious wholeness. Finally, both offer a sense of the spiritual. Walden was the result of Thoreau’s sojourn at the “Pond” and “The Oquaga Spirit Speaks” was the result of my dwelling at Oquaga Lake. Both are located in the northeastern part of the United States. For your enjoyment, I hope you like these quotes. Thoreau:
QUOTES FROM WALDEN AND OTHER THE WRITINGS OF HENRY DAVID THOREAU
Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand (Journal)
The doctrines of despair,of spiritual or political tyranny or servitude, were never taught as such that shared the serenity of nature.(Natural History of Massachusetts)
If you would learn the secrets of nature, you must practice more humanity than others (Journal)
To speak critically, I’ve never received more than one or two letters in my life……..that were worth the postage (Walden).
QUOTES FROM THE OQUAGA SPIRIT SPEAKS
If it’s life you wish to live and enjoy it to the marrow; then get thee a walking stick and hear the morning sparrow. (From the Oquaga Spirit Speaks, Get Thee a Walking Stick)
But, why not imitate the spark of God, Divine? For God did make the grapes; so man could make the wine. ( from the spirits poem: “Floral Fireworks”)
July is summer’s crown; as long lit days abound. The “Queen of Siesta” is she. Cares, like kites, fly free.” (as dictated by the Oquaga Spirit in her poem “July”.
The Oquaga Spirit hopes that as much as you like Thoreau’s, Walden, her words will strike a similar accord. Keep watching for my collection of her poetry. . Almost 100 pages of poetry, many with pictures, are in the book. Availability will be on the products page of DSO works.com for $2.99.
My Funniest Scotts Oquaga Lake House Story. As you drive up the mountain, you finally turn in a driveway. A sign is there that declares: You haven’t experienced Scotts until you’ve experienced the fun!. In that case, you only experience Scotts. It’s 100% fun. Not even 99%. Everyone, like me, has a favorite funny Scott’s story. My favorite involves two entertainers. They were Bill and Bev Taylor, a husband-wife team. Here’s the background: In the 1980’s the resort had bus tours from Canada. The Canadians were from French and English Canada. One time a bus load of elderly French speaking ladies, who did not speak English, arrived.
GARY ENTERTAINS THE LADIES ON SCOTTS SHOWBOAT WHILE I PLAY THE PIANO
Here’s the set up; Right after arriving by bus, they were rushed onto Scott’s Showboat of Song at 4:15 pm for a beautiful trip around the lake. Gary Holdridge, the husband of Patty, the eldest daughter of the Scotts; was the captain. The songbook had no songs in French. Fortunately, Captain Gary knew numerous popular French songs, from memory. When he sang the French folk song “Frere Jacques” every one in the boat with sang with gusto and joy. They loved the boat ride and especially the beauty of Oquaga Lake.
INHABITANTS FROM OUTER SPACE ENTERTAIN THE FRENCH LADIES ON STAGE AT SCOTTS
The time is now 4:30pm. It’s afternoon showtime. Featured entertainers are Bill and Bev Taylor with comedy and song. The French ladies are seated. Bill and Bev walk out and take a bow, dressed in their costumes. Their dress looked a little like white space suits. No one laughed. I’m standing in the distant back taking it all in. Then tragedy hits. Joke after joke got absolutely no response from the audience. The ladies didn’t flinch or even move. On stage, the Taylors were literally dying -for a whole 45 minutes! Bill and Bev didn’t realize that it was strictly a French speaking audience. Comedy in a foreign language just sounds like jibberish. In this case, jibberish in spacesuits. I must confess, while standing in the rear of the playhouse, I never laughed so hard for so long. Afterwards, the Taylors thanked me laughing. Atleast someone enjoyed their act. When I told them what the problem was, they were relieved.,,,,Oops! The entertainment committee should have scheduled an impressionist or a juggler. So many fine entertainers come to Scotts in any given week. Please let me know if there is any moment that is not fun at Scotts.
Megalithic Measure has a Broadway Marque (the picture above of real Broadway signs is just for analogy, of course): Oh well, back to our little tic-tack-toe board. Here’s quick review of some. Refer back to the picture of the featured image on top so you can properly place these numbers on the tick-tack-toe board.
the perimeter totals the same (2220) forwards or backwards.
among the myriad of ways to crack the code are reading the numbers three at the time (or by hundreds) in opposition. For example: 492 + 618 = 1,110; or 276 + 824 = 1110 (for those who have not been reading the blogs, the perimeter of the Great Pyramid is 1110 megalithic yards of 2.72 feet)
Now Here’s the Big Broadway Marquee of Megalithic Measure.
When the secret code is unmasked, we learn the megalithic Phantom of the Opera’s true identity.
P1 (40) + P2(440) + P3 (2220) divided by square root of 5 = one megalithic yard of 2.72 feet (rounded up from 2.7195). Five is the central number of the square. Of course, with the square, we just have numbers. Cultures around the world have attached their own measure to the numbers.
Remember. In cracking the code, one of the key ways that numbers are read are forwards and backwards three at the time. Keeping in mind that as the megalithic yard comes from this system; the megalithic inch is a straight read horizontally; left to right across the bottom: Just like a Broadway marquee. One megalithic inch = 0.816 inches.
Read the numbers the other way, and 0.618 expresses the Golden Section as 1/1.618 = 0.618…
As previously blogged about, 15 can be found as a total of numbers in a straight line by single digits in 8 ways. Example 4 + 5 + 6 = 15; 3 + 5 + 7 =15 etc., Thus 8 x 15 = 120.Take the 120 total of the square and multiply this number by itself: 120 X 120 = 14,400. You have the number of feet in a megalithic mile.
Conclusion: (1) The Broadway Marquee of Megalithic Measure is the 3 x 3 number square that children try to solve by the 4th grade. This knowledge was illuminated for me by an old Indian spirit guide from the maternal American Indian Lennie Lenape tribe. She dwells around the beautiful, spring fed, Oquaga Lake. I call her the “Lady of the Lake:|”. (2) Finally and most important: The 3 x 3 number square has a unifying simplicity to it that is completely capable of bringing about a new and lasting era of peace and plenty for all mankind: Where there is unity, there is peace.
Black Elk of the Sioux. Black Elk was a medicine man for the Oglala Sioux Indians. He verbally related his story to John Neihardt who published a book in 1932 with Black Elk’s words called :Black Elk Speaks. If you think that the Book of Revelations of John in the New Testament can be confusing, Black Elk Speaks is definitely on a par. It definitely has many similarities. His vision has both the wisdom and analogies used by the Bible which further leads me to believe the possibility that the American Indians branched out from a lost tribe of Israel.
“Younger brother,” he said, “with the powers of the four quarters you shall walk”… (quote from an ancient grandfather speaking to Black Elk in Chapter 3 of Black Elk Speaks) Of course, two intersecting rivers have always been the location of concepts of Paradise. What do the 4 quarters refer to? The answer: even numbered, number squares, in particular the 4 x 4 number square of which I have written numerous blogs. Please review these on DSOworks.com
The “horses took their places in their quarters, looking inward, four by four” (also chapter 3 of Black Elk Speaks). These 4 central numbers of this first and therefore prime even-numbered number square are 10,11,6, and 7. They represent the four corners of the Earth. Here is the key:
THE FORMULA OF BLACK ELK’S VISION
In the majority of middle eastern civilization and elsewhere, the 4 x 4 number square represented the symbolic potential of the planet Jupiter for success is action, business, and creating opportunities. Each of the 7 planets were assigned its own number square.
All potential lies in the central four numbers of even numbered squares for a totality of creation explained as follows: Here is the formula: The upper left central number (10) I call UL. The upper right number I call UR. The lower left I call LL and the lower right I call LR. The sum of all the numbers in any even numbered number square can be represented by “S”. The formula becomes (UL X LR) + (LL + UR) = S. The prototype example above becomes (10 x 7) + (6 x 11) = 136 (sum of the numbers from 1 to 16)
This number square was called upon on by God in Genesis on each day of creation. I’ve already blogged about this; but to summarize – on each day God called his work, “Good,” In Hebrew “good” has a numerical equivalent of 17, On the above number square, any opposite numbers total 17 as- 16 + 1; 10 + 7; 4 + 13 etc.
Here is the clincher: As all life as we know it develops by a mathematical ratio called “phi”, 1.618… to 1; this square holds are series of numbers called the Fibonacci that develops in that ratio. The first Fibonacci numbers are: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…Now look at the above square: 16 + 5 = 21; 3 + 10 = 13; 2 + 11 + 13; 13 + 8 = 31 etc. Their totals are always the Fibonacci numbers of life.
Conclusion: A find a strong parallel between the vision of Black Elk, medicine man for the Oglala Sioux, and Genesis of the Bible or Revelations of the New Testament. I can only conclude that if we but know it, all mankind is one with our Creator and that we should all reclaim our natural birthright in this wonderful upcoming age to be filled with peace and plenty. Finally, please keep watching for my book of poetry dictated to me by an old Indian spirit, female of the matriarchal, Lennie Lenape tribe. It is called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks- 89 pages of poetry and pictures dictated to me by this spirit around Oquaga Lake. It will be listed for on the products page of DSOworks,com very reasonably.
Why Number Five is the Key to Creation. My primary source was (1) the Oquaga Spirit, that dwells on spring fed Oquaga Lake in upstate New York on a mountain top. (2) Rabbi Michael L. Munk’s book, The Wisdom of the Hebrew Alphabet. To the best of my knowledge. God’s name Yah, as spelled in Hebrew with a yud and a hei: : יָהּ – has a numerial equivalent of 15. Any straight row of three numbers on the 3 x 3 number square also equals 15. The parallel with the 3 x 3 number square goes further. The first Hebrew letter of Yah is a yud which is also the symbol for number 10. In many ancient languages letters actually doubled as numbers. There were no separate number systems from the letters like we have in English. On the 3 x 3 number square any two opposite two numbers always total 10. The core number on the square is 5, which is the numerical equivalent of the second letter, hei.
Rabbi Munk describe how “according to the Sages” this world was created by the letter hei (5) and the world to come with the letter yud (10). The Rabbi directly quotes Isaiah 26:4 בְּיָהּ יְהֹוָה צוּר עוֹלָמִים: which translates “In the name of “Yah” God formed the worlds”. By interlocking the 5 (this world) with the world to come (10) we are shown how the spirit from the world to come is intertwined with the physical world by the 3 x 3 square that the Chinese civilization refers to as “Lo shu.”. By tradition it is is connected to the planet, Saturn, the giver of law.
ISAIAH 26:4 POINTS TO A GRAND UNITY
So where is the grand unity? In my search, I was shown how the vibrations per second of the musical tones of antquity (whose vibrations per second are corroborated by Issac Asimov in his book, On Physics) built their holy sites on giving measure by the vibrations per second to these holy sites.Isaiah knew this. By placing this key passage in 26:4; he aligned the Scripture with the diatonic tone “C” which vibrated 264 times per second. Other expresses of the use of the diatonic tone “C”
include Stonehenge: The distance from the center of its concentric circles to the heel stone is 264 feet
The Great Enclosure in Zimbabwe conceived as a circle with circumference of 831 feet with a diameter of 264 feet.
The Hebrew word for the Passover prayer book is “seder”. It means “order”. Without the letter “hei” which translates “the”, seder equals 264 by number equivalent. The order of Seder is a statement of the cosmic order found not only in music, but in the measurement of holy sites around the world. To quote the theme of these blogs: Where there is unity and oneness, there is peace. As is said in Hebrew, and similarly in Arabic:
One length and one width of the Ka’aba (33 x 39 feet) translates to 26.4 megalithic yards of 2.72 feet (the fraction for converting is 30/11 = 2.727272…) The 3 letter root of both “Arab” and Hebrew in Hebrew letters equals 272. The both share the ayin (70) veis,(2) and reisch(200) letters; only re-arranged.
King Arthur: His Palace and the Megalithic Mile. Baffling co-incidences occur in the realm of ancient measurements including the use of the same measures in places separated by great distances. Take the megalithic mile which measures 14,400 feet. This distance is 2.7272…tomes greater than the 5,280 foot British mile. For that matter, one megalithic yard equals 2.7272…British feet (12 inches each). Why 14,400 feet? Isn’t a shorter 5,280 foot mile easier for supposedly primitive people to use for measurement? Consider this: John Michell describes in his The View Over Atlantis how out of the 300 churches on the Ordinance Survey Sheet in the Stonehenge area, over 100 are separated multiples of the 14,400 foot geomancer’s mile. A couple of examples:
In the Glastonbury area the distance from the Tor (the area’s most sacred mount) and Cadbury Camp,the alleged site of King Arthur’s palace, is 4 x 14,400 feet.
Just in the Glastonbury area, the Abbey and Wells Cathedral are two geomancer’s miles apart.
WHERE DID THE 14,400 FOOT MILE COME FROM?
Why 14,400? I’ve found two reasons. The second is based on the first. The first is the 3 x 3 magic number square and the second are the five regular polyhedrons, popularly known as the Platonic Solids. I have documented in my works how the 3 x 3 number square is a numerical stamping block for the five Platonic solids.As a matter of fact, it is a stamp for most of the sciences and arts not only of mankind; but I can say with assurance that if civilizations existed at peace on other planets, this 3 x 3 number square would be at their basis.
On the 3 x 3 magic number square, where any row of three numbers totals 15, this sum can be found in 8 different ways: 3 vertically, 3 horizontally and 2 diagonally for a total of 120. Squaring this number that characterizes this number square, we have 120 x 120 = 14,400.
Among the five regular polyhedrons, three (tetrahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron) have a total of 32 triangles ( 180 degrees/triangle x 32 = 5,760 degrees. The cube has six squares at 360 degrees per square = 2,160 degrees and the dodecahedron has 12 regular pentagons so 12 x 540 =6,480 degrees. Add these figures and you have 5,760 + 6,480 + 2,160 = 14,400.
Our allegedly primitive ancestors took the 3 x 3 number square and built their civilizations using its properties as their engineering tool par excellence. Over time, I will keep on blogging about their forgotten wisdom. Here is the tie in with King Arthur: As the Lady of the Lake gave King Arthur the Excalibur sword, the Lady of Oquaga Lake showed me what I have come to know, and am sharing. The goal, as per the 8th century Greek poet and philospher, Hesiod; is a lasting Golden Age of peace and plenty. My book, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, will be available shortly and very reasonably, on this website. It was dictated to me, word by word, by the Lady of the Lake while living in the Catskills of New York.
