Cricket as Recorded by the Oquaga Spirit. Crickets, of the family Gryllidae, are insects related to bush crickets. They are also related, more distantly, to grasshoppers. The cricket was regarded by the Chinese as a 3-fold symbol. It represented life, death and resurrection. Its presence by the hearth was considered as a lucky charm. It was also thought of in this regard by Mediterranean civilizations.
Who is not acquainted with the sometimes overwhelming sound of crickets? Those who are keeping up with these blogs know my affinity for an Oquaga Spirit. She is a female Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. The spirit dwells around Oquaga Lake where my family spent many summers. I was the “house piano player” for the Scott family. In her poems, she frequently referred to crickets.
The Poetic Appearance of the Cricket
Below is an internal link with me reciting some of the spirit’s poetry. My book, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, is available as a product on DSOworks.com. In the future, I hope to tour as a poet reciting the magnificent rhyme of the Oquaga Spirit. In the meanwhile I hope you enjoy some of her verses about crickets. With their spoken recitation comes happiness and peace of mind. I recite poems from the book several times daily.
Quoted from “Early in August“.
Tree laden with seed pods,
Noisy pulsating crickets;
Speedboats circling the lake,
Freshly painted pickets.
2. An entire poem is entitled “The Crickets“. Here’s one quatrain.
The crickets give voice
To the pulse of the field.
The power of the day
In chirping they wield.
3. The third poem I will quote is entitled “Change“.
The tallish stalks of grass
Have turned to tannish-brown;
Hiding chirping crickets
That make so loud a sound.
Look for future blogs of the wisdom from this American Indian spirit. One of her favorite topics was the ancient use of number squares. A number of my 450 plus blogs cover this topic.
Dome Philosophy as Opposed to Angular Philosophy. A dome has curved and fluid lines. One’s environment influences thinking. Therefore, interaction with the dome makes for fluid, flexible thoughts. For the geodesic dome we are indebted to R.B. Fuller.
Buckminster Fuller would often ask architects, “How much does your building weigh?” They never knew. He believes that every pound should have a defined and necessary function. Fuller’s domes were triangulated. They had maximum strength for minimum weight.
Dome Philosophy as per the Oquaga Spirit
It is no secret that space-time is a curved continuum. Thus, the shape of the dome is in keeping with curved space.
I wrote a book of poetry while living around Oquaga Lake. I felt the presence of a spirit there. See picture below. Aptly, I named it the “Oquaga Spirit”. I sensed the spirit was a female from the Lennie Lenape. It is a product on DSOworks.com. You can freely sample me reciting some of the poetry on this inner link. If you are interested, you can also purchase the book.
This spirit dictated a poem to me entitled: Like a Ballerina. She used triple meter for almost the entire book. She also talks about how space-time is a curved continuum. This parallels Fuller’s use of triangles with the dome shape. Orchestral conductors often conduct triple meter in circular fashion. In the poetry book she offers the following admonition and advice. This is excerpted from her poem, “Like a Ballerina”.
“Man likes duple meters. His triple meters wane. Return ye to the waltzes of Vienna, And the vibrant boleros of Spain.”
What we have here is the musical wave of both the past and future. As a pianist, I’m sure to play a good share of music in 3/4 time on my jobs.
However, current theories of leading physicists see reality as a connection or continuum of space-time. Thus, as the present is visible, so are the past and the future. I was fortunate enough to spend 15 summer seasons on Oquaga Lake. My official title was “the house pianist” at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. One of my duties was playing the piano on “Scott’s Showboat of Song.” It daily circled Oquaga Lake at 4:30 pm. Once in a while we did a nighttime cruise. Everyone was happy and joyful. Most sensed a spiritual presence on the lake. For me, it spoke in poetry as a hiked around the lake in the early morning hours. Below is one of the spirit’s poems. It is entitled “Future Fog.” An illustrated book of her poetry is called: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.” It is available as a product on DSOworks.com

Future Telling in the Poem “Future Fog” in the Oquaga Spirit Speaks
We see the future in a fog But though we cannot see through,
And know not what it brings. We still may smell and hear.
It’s milky, dense and thick By keeping all senses sharp
And hides most everything. We see ahead the year.
We do not know tomorrow, For sound penetrates the fog.
If it bring joy or sorrow And smell drifts through the haze.
Or if it just be plain By keeping all senses sharp,
Like slow and steady rain. We see ahead the days.
We know not how things shape up
Until the fog has lifted.
But then the future is the present,
As the sands of time have shifted.
Magic Square Summary offered by a spirit that dwells around Oquaga Lake. There was once a golden age. Knowledge of the 3 x 3 number square held it in place. Men lived their lives by the balanced numerical codes it contains. A female American Indian spirit enlightened me about this code. She was of the Lennie Lenape. Hesiod alludes to this age. His writings were almost 3000 years earlier. The Works and Days (Ancient Greek: Ἔργα καὶ Ἡμέραι, Erga kai Hēmerai)[a] is a didactic poem of some 800 lines written by the ancient Greek poet Hesiod around 700 BCE. The Works and Days is perhaps best known for its two mythological aetiologies for the toil and pain that define the human condition: It contains he story of Prometheus and Pandora. It also describes the Myth of Five Ages. They were: the Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age, Heroic Age, and the present age, that of Iron. The golden race lived in the time of Cronus. It was an age of plenty and peace. The earth provided for all. Rivalries were unknown.
Magic Square Summary Was Dictated on Oquaga Lake by a Spirit Guide
The above picture is of Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. It is perched in the Catskill Mountains. Almost anyone who visits either senses or actually communes with this spirit. The spirit talked ceaselessly to me. I was lucky. Many of the blogs on DSOworks.com are because of her. Here is some of her wisdom. In your spare time, please read the blogs in full. Just click on all posts. It’s that easy.
“The source of truth is the square of three. By straight read, three codes appear. They hold a cosmic code. The central five also becomes 55 and 555. When compared to a star or atom, man is in the middle. Speaking in relative sizes, man becomes the 55. An atom becomes the 5. A star becomes the 555. ” The code also offers “infinity” on a golden platter. These codes spin and twirl numbers in a set and balanced way.
Sleep Therapy as per the Oquaga Spirit. I have been so fortunate. My family and I spent at least 15 beautiful summers on Oquaga Lake. The entire family got to go with me. I was employed as the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. As a result I have added another profession: That of a working poet. Scott’s is located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains of New York state. There, I met the presence of a spirit. I call it the Oquaga Spirit. “In the mornings I’d stroll and the spirit would be afloat.” The spirit spoke in poetic verse. The verse was mostly in simple quatrains in triple meter. A square four or angular two has dominated business, music, dance and poetry. Get ready for a soothing new wave of triple meter. As the spirit states: Return ye to the waltzes of Vienna. Incidentally, I am currently playing the piano at the Sarasota Crab and Fin on St Armand’s Circle. See events on DSOworks.com. Come and listen to me outdoors and enjoy beautiful melodies of Strauss waltzes.
So What did the Oquaga Spirit Say About Sleep Therapy?
The spirit’s poem is from the “The Morning lake in July”. I sensed the spirit to be a female American Indian from the Lennie Lenope tribe. They, at one time. lived around the lake. Also, be sure to listen to the free youtube video above of me reciting some of this spirit’s wonderful poems.
The morning lake in July
Has no wrinkles or crinkles.
Its flat facade gently flows
Marked only by a few sprinkles.
Just like a youthful lad
Whose skin is smooth and healthy
Without a care and trouble free
As if he were quite wealthy.
But later in the day,
When the winds begin to blow,
And boats are out by the dozens,
It’s then that age will show.
The next morning with the rising Sun,
The lake is once more new.
Just like us, after a good night’s sleep
We dispel the feeling of blue.
Greco-Hebraic Bond by Number 3168. This “3168” figure is virtually ubiquitous throughout the ancient world. John Michell discusses 3168 in City of Revelation. Chapter VII is entitled: 3168, the Perimeter of the Temple. He also discusses how the number ties into measurement. Here is a brief excerpt.
31,680 inches = ½ mile.
31,680 feet = 6 miles
31,680 furlongs (660 feet) = radius of the Earth (3,960 miles).
By an ancient science called gematria, the Greeks equated 3168 with “Lord Jesus Christ.” See City of Revelation p.82. This is found in the ancient Greek practice of equating numbers and letters called gematria. Hebrew does the same. So do many ancient languages.
Greco-Hebraic Bond is Quite Unique
In my featured picture above we have the blueprint and numbers of “the ancient temple plan.” Here we find the Greco-Hebraic bond. This is a source of ancient building. The idea was to draw on the numbers of this blueprint. Whatever units of measure you used didn’t matter. The idea was to draw on the numbers. It could be numbers in shorter Egyptian cubits (1.718 feet) , Palestinian cubits (2.107 feet) , English yards (3 feet) or even megalithic yards (2.72 feet). Please notice the outer hexagon numbers 528 on each side. Multiply number 528 by the 6 sides of the hexagon and we have: 528 x 6 = 3168.
You are probably wondering how or where I discovered this ancient temple plan. I found it on beautiful Oquaga Lake. While I was hiking, the Oquaga Spirit offered me the vision in the featured blog picture. This spirit has became a part of my life. This is true even when I am away from Oquaga Lake. I’ve memorized every poem this spirit has dictated. I recite the poems to myself daily. The result was the poetry book entitled, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. From the Greco-Hebraic bond to wisdom about number squares, the spirit freely offered knowledge to me. In turn I am sharing her knowledge with you.
Nucleic Acids are Based the 1st Number Square. Three by three makes the 1st number square. 1 x 1 is defines the center of all odd numbered number squares. At the center of all even number squares is 2 x 2 center. Thus, the squaring of the first two digits as 1 x 1 and. 2 x 2 creates these centers. The 1st actual independent number square is 3 x 3. Being a odd number, one number (5) sits at its center. It sets the pattern in motion. #5 is the prime center of all number squares.
Others first patterns with number 3 include:
In two dimensions the triangle is the 1st polygon.
In three dimensions, the tetrahedron (pictured below) is the 1st regular polyhedron. This “Platonic solid” is the basic builiding block of the Universe. Plato, of course, had access to Egyptian knowledge. Egyptians had knowledge from Neolitic times.
Another threefold event is: Action- Reaction and a stable Resultant. The resultant is stable only if action and reaction show up as positive and negative helixes of triangles (See Synergetics by R. Buckminister Fuller section 108.01-.02).
Be it 3, 3², or √3, – all were understood and worked with in prehistoric times. We briefly discussed 3 and 3 x 3. How about √3? The square of three is also coded by hundreds. When it is, the central number becomes 555.
View the square above by 3 numbers at the time. Pair them by opposites. Also, any three numbers that cross the center is its own complementary 555 number. Their sum is always 1,110. Example, 492 + 618 = 1,110. Or, 951 + 159 = 1,110. The average of the two triple numbers becomes 555.
Finding to the 320 Proton Total of the 5 Nucleic Acids
Now, here is where RNA-DNA come into play by √3: Take the 555 of this 1st number square. Divide it by square root of three. The quotient is 320.4294… The number of protons in the nucleic acids is 320. In Neolitic cultures, the square root of three is at the basis of many sacred sites. The vesica piscis (vessel of the fish) demonstrates this square root.
Th 3 x 3 number square is the number square of man. In this regard click on the following blogs on DSOworks.com They are free. Share with friends!
Where did my insights comes from? Beautiful Oquaga Lake. It is the home of the Oquaga Spirit. Everyone should make a trip to this most sacred and isolated place of incomparable beauty. Enjoy the poetry given to me by this spirit. The Oquaga Spirit Speaks is a book of poetry available on DSOworks.com
Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normally green leaves of many deciduoustrees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, various shades of red, yelloow. orange purple. All the colors of the rainbow. I promised on my website, DSOworks.com to share the wisdom of the Oquaga Spirit. Here is an excerpt from her poem called, September. The complete book of her poetry is available on our website. Little by little, they will all be shared in these blogs. The Oquaga Spirit’s haunt is Oquaga Lake in the Catskill Mountains. She is a female spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. On my hikes in the wilderness she was my constant companion. For atleast 15 years I was called the “Summer Bard of the Catskill Mountains” because of her. I was based at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House in Deposit, New York.
The hot and hazy days
Of July and August are gone
Along with sleeping in
And lounging on the lawn.
The cottagers are closing up
Their children returning to school
September has rounded the corner
And crisp cool days now rule.
A flurry of activity
Anticpates flurries of snow…
Like a hot bed of bees.
Bustling wherever you go
Packing up belongings
Returning to city life
Shopping for kitchen and clothing
There’s traffic and urban strife.
The clock becomes the king
Enthroned over school and work.
The untimed days of summer
Are now quite jumpy and jerked.
Nature dons new clothes
Shedding her uniforms of green
In favor of brighter colors
As far as can be seen.
Seeds are ready to drop
Leaves are coming down
Twirling in cosmic spirals
Until they hit the ground.
But in nature’s flurry is grace,
Never as frantic as man.
She calmly faces each day
Unfolding by divine plan.
Fire Section of My Complete Elemental Suite for piano. Ancient sages believed in five elements. They were earth, air, fire, water and ether. The 5th element was a single composite, supernal element beyond the other four. These five elements were thought to be the source of creation. In fact,they are. However, they have been misunderstood. Here’s the take I was shown by the Oquaga Spirit. This Indian female spirit from the Lennie Lenape demonstrated how the cosmos comes from two types of number squares:
Ether comes from the initial or first number square in order of size that can be built: 3 x 3
The two types are either odd and even numbered. The prototypes are the 3 x 3 and the 4 x 4. The first number square(above) , from smallest to biggest, is the 3 x 3. Only one number is at its center. It’s number five. That number represents ether. Then, the first even number square is 4 x 4. It consists of 16 numbers. Four numbers sit at its center. These are the 4 elements. The 1st chapter of Genesis is also about how God used these two number squares for His Creation. Thus, the 5 elements of antiquity total the two types of centers in the first two number squares: Odd and even. The goddess cultures were all about number squares and how they expressed basic cosmic laws. In my current 150 blogs on DSO works, I go into great detail on this subject. All posts are very easy to access.
The Four Elements, including Fire, Come From the 1st Evenly Numbered “Magic Square.”
In my Elemental Suite, this element, expresses its characteristic essence. Fire represents spirit and life. Note the expression “the spark of life.” It’s energetic. The symbol is a triangle pointing upwards. Fire is closely connected to passion and sexual energy. The pyramid shape is also represented by the triangle of “fire”. On the youtube video below we have different types of flames:
The raging power of fire expressed at the opening played in a military manner.
A more gentle, feminine but yet passionate fire as the 2nd theme.
A smoldering fire in the middle section that builds to the repeat.
The repeated section ends with a blaze of glory.
I am available for concerts of my own music. Check some of my piano compositions and arrangements on DSOworks. Below is the feature. Also, Sharon and I have co-written numerous musicals over the years. Check out our products page for samples. Hope you enjoy this selection. Incidentally, look out the window on the youtube sample. You can actually see shades of beautiful Oquaga Lake in the background. The Indian spirit that resides there taught me about the number squares of older civilizations and how they were used by American Indian tribes.
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.
