Interrelationships of the Past Crossed Disciplines. Numbers were an ancient reasoning tool. Ancient philosophers and priests used common numbers to emphasize similarities. This blog simply illustrates one example: How Great Pyramid and the Platonic solids use the same numbers. I’ll walk my reader through the meaning of two diagrams.
First: The dimensions of the Great Pyramid. Its essential dimensions are: Square base is 8 x 8 great cubits. The four triangulated faces peak together at 5 great cubits: Note-
The base is square. It measures 440 shorter Egyptian cubits of 1.71818.. feet on each side.
One Great Cubit is 55 of such smaller cubits.
The Great Pyramid measures 440 cubits or 8 such great cubits on each side.
The truncated height is 275 of these smaller cubits.
By great cubits this becomes 5.
Next we turn our attention to the 5 solids. First, 5 is the key number for both: The Great Pyramid has 5 faces. There are 5 Platonic solids.What is the source of five? It is not an arbitrary number. Look at the 3 x 3 number square. Five is at its core. Very important: Interrelationships are deeper than they appear on this number square. Through opposite polarities they go to infinity! One example is in the next paragraph.
I mentioned each side of the Pyramid is 440 cubits. Where is 440 n this number square? For this I must credit an Indian spirit I believe to be from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I spent many summers on Oquaga Lake.
Take the numbers around the perimeter. Add them two at the time as follows: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440. It is the same forwards or backwards. Each side of the square-based Great Pyramid is 440 cubits. It’s the numbers that are important: Ancients of varied civilizations attached their own units of measure to these key numbers. What was the primary reason the Great Pyramid was built?
To illustrate every way the 3 x 3 square can function.
With this knowledge, a new Golden Age of Peace and Plenty can be implemented
Next, look at the illustrations of the Platonic solids. Vertical column one (on the left) totals the features each solid. Each of the five has its own horizontal column. This shows the added horizontal values. Here is the total number of faces, corners and edges for each solid. In other words, the topology.
The tetrahedron has 14.
The cube has 26.
The octahedron has 26.
The icosahedron has 62.
The dodecahedron has 62.
This information can be found in standard textbooks on geometry. Next the chart reduces these topology numbers as follows:
Fourteen: 1 +4 = 5. This is for the tetrahedron.
Twenty-six: 2 + 6 = 8. This applies to the cube and octahedron.
The third different number is sixty-two. 6 + 2 = 8. This applies to the dodecahedron and icosahedron.
We thus see four eights and one five. That duplicates the four-square base of 8 Great Cubits on each side and the pyramid’s height of 5 Great Cubits.
First Impressions are Long Lasting Here’s Why. Over some 15 years I toured with Rubinoff and His Violin. I served his pianist and arranger. Two questions beg to be answered. What was His Violin? What is an arranger? His violin was the Romanoff Stradivarius. A Stradivarius violin could be worth hundreds of thousands to several million U.S. dollars . The 1697 “Molitor“ was once rumored to have belonged to Napoleon. It sold in 2010 at Tarisio Auctions for $3,600,000. It was, at the time, a world record.
Next, what is a musical arranger? It is best described by means of a story. A man walks by a pet shop. It was Summer. The doors were open. He hears this unbelievably beautiful singing coming from a canary inside the shop. He asks the pet ship owner: How much is that songbird? I think I would like to buy her. The owner replies, “She’s five dollars.” The man exclaims, “Wow. Only five dollars. I think I’ll buy her”. The pet ship owner answers: “Not so fast. Do you see that ugly, scraggly, looking bird over there?” The man replies, “Yes.”The owner replies: “When you buy her you have to buy him. And… he’s $100.00.” The man is shocked: “Why would I want him for $100.00 when I can just have her for $5.00? The pet store owner replies: “He’s the arranger.”
An arranger sets the musical context for a melody. It can be compared to the background around a subject of a painting. With the canary story, first impressions were wrong. In the joke (based on truth) she needed the arranger to showcase her voice.
First Impressions Can be Lasting Impressions for Children
This internal link immediately below has Rubinoff and I playing in New York in the Catskills at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. He was 86 years of age at the time. Its link is connected to connected to Youtube. It is called, Lost Concert Found.
Rubinoff and I played a number of school functions. One was for the chamber orchestra at a middle school in Venice, Florida. I must say they couldn’t have cared less for his Stradivarius violin. That was because he carried the violin in a genuine alligator skin violin case. It was made in Germany. It had all of the original fins. Of course, that would impress any child! Please share with friends. My upcoming concert commemorating Rubinoff will be in Circleville, Ohio on this June 2nd. Click on all events for details. Hope to see you there. And yes, I have one or two openings for piano students in Sarasota.
Musical Tradition Embraces Architectural Style. Obviously, Elvis is the star in the featured picture. Now, who is playing the Steinway concert grand in the beautiful setting below? That’s your blogger, David. So what does one have to do with the other? It’s the music that I’m playing. Basically, I love the style and taste of Elvis.
Here’s a story: One of my most popular piano arrangements, Aura Lea: Theme and Variations for piano, was composed in Toronto, Ontario. No matter where I play it – on the concert stage, for a private party or during the dinner hour – it always receives grand applause and some rather sizable tips.The arrangement is heart rendering; bringing back pleasant memories. One variation combines the theme with “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf”; bringing two great American songs together. And, by the way, this composition has many showy virtuoso passages. Yes, choosing this number, Elvis proved once more that he was king.
How Musical Tradition Embraces Architectural Style
Now for musical tradition, Aura Lea is one of the most beloved American songs and is arguably as popular as Amazing Grace. Our generation heard it with the words that Elvis sang as Love Me Tender. The melody has graced America over the last two centuries. The music was written by W.W. Fosdick and words by George R. Poulton during the Civil War in 1861. The sheet music cover is the original Confederate version, dated 1864. The 1st internal link me playing in New York’s Catskill Mountains.
It was at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House a few years back. However,their piano was “so, so.” Below is the link just recorded with me at the Inn. The difference in pianos is quite noticeable. It was videoed live and less than week ago, and just posted. Keep checking DSOworks.com for more and more upcoming events. Elvis understood the public pulse.
Trust Among Nations as Per the Oquaga Spirit. As usual, defining terms comes first. What is trust?
a: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something
b: one in which confidence is placed
Next, who or what is the Oquaga Spirit? She is an essence that dwells around Oquaga Lake. I believe it is an American Indian spirit. I (David) was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga lake House. My employment covered a span of about 25 years. In the mornings I’d stroll and the spirit would be afloat. “So much she needed an ear, she ignored my tranquillity.” Some years we did not go to the lake. That was primarily when our children were in school. Over the decades the spirit changed her mode of communication:
In the 1980’s she preferred iambic pentameter. This was communicated in quatrains.
During the 1990’s she spoke in rhyming, triple meter. She also communicated poetry in quatrains. Why quatrains? They bring about a beneficial effect. Quatrains of poetry invoke Jupiterian influences. Jupiter is the thinking-person’s planet. It is the guardian of the abstract mind. This planet rules higher learning. It bestows upon us a yen for exploring ideas. This is both intellectually and spiritually. Explanations of Jupiterian influences through a specific number square are on DSOworks.com
Below is an excerpt from a poem in iambic, written during the 1980’s.
The spirit loved peaceful co-existence. Also, many poems were about beauty in nature. She was of the Lennie Lenape tribe. This tribe was ruled by the women. The Lenape have a matrilineal clan system and historically were matrilocal.
Trust Among Nations
Mutual exchange among nations promotes peace.
When states have closed doors, mistrust develops.
People then image what horrors locked entries must hide.
Not realizing that inhabitants worldwide live similarly.
Though official doctrines of lands may differ,
Everyone eats, sleeps, drinks and works.
Nations tap their feet to the same rhythms.
They view sunrise and sunset with equal awe.
All over, people want to be liked and loved
As recorded in the songs and novels of writers.
Everywhere, people seek to understand mysteries of life.
In so doing they turn to religion or philosophy…
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.
Seasonal Migration as per the Oquaga Spirit. Many spring fed lakes have spiritual presence. Oquaga Lake has quite a strong and active spirit. I was fortunate. The spiritual “Lady of the Lake” befriended me. My family and I spent some 15 summer seasons on the lake. I was the house piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. Here is an incredible parallel: Just as the movie The Last Samurai featured an historian/photgrapher, we had one on Oquaga Lake. His name was John Margolies. Here is some of his background.
From sea to shining sea, John Margolies knew, there was much that cried to be photographed. There was the Long Island poultry store in the shape of a vast white duck. The gaping alligator’s mouth through which visitors entered a Kissimmee, Fla. zoo. The 65-foot-long muskie in Bena, Minn., that housed the Big Fish Supper Club. The Donut Hole, a doughnut shop in the form of — what else? — in La Puente, Calif.
Our enitre family spent many summers with John on Oquaga Lake. We all loved every minute. Never a dull moment on magnificent spring fed lake. I (David) wrote poetry galore thanks to the spirit.
Seasonal Migration as per the Oquaga Spirit
Enjoy a moment of nostalgia with the spirit’s poem entitled “We’ll Talk a Little More.” I sensed that she was a female Indian spirit. She was from the Lennie Lenape. The entire collection is available on DSOworks.com. Daily, I recite and keep the poetry memorized; and the spirit alive. Poetry presentations are in my job description.
The summer fun is done
Like burnt wood in a flame:
Only glowing embers
And memories to place in a frame.
But oh, how those embers
Are full of reverie,
I see in them the summer
And I’m sure the summer sees me.
And many a fire will burn
In crackling fireplace,
Until the folks return
Once more to their special place.
The ground is flooded with leaves.
Daily the temperature dips.
Our boxes and bags are packed.
We’re readied for southern trip.
I bid you spirit, adieux
At least for ninety-four.
Next year when I return,
We’ll talk a little more.
A Holy Spirit enlightened me about a lost number code. I call this spirit, the Oquaga Spirit. I sensed it was a female from the Lennie Lenape tribe. At one time this tribe lived around the Oquaga Lake. They were a matriarchal tribe. Women made key decisions. The story of my enlightenment by this spirit is the subject of many of my blogs. I intuitively feel it promises nothing less than a new Golden Age. Please read the blogs. They are easy to access. Just click on all posts on DSOworks.com. Here I quote one of the books that she inspired. It is from The Staff of God Vol.II.
Lost Code Reference Revealed
First, note the above number square. Any straight row of 3 numbers totals 15. To arrive at 15, you have to take a broader view. One must go past the lines and crooked places. Then, 15 can be found in 8 different ways. Three are horizontal. Three are vertical. Two are diagonal. Many know this by the third grade in elementary school. However, the spirit pointed out the lost code reference of Ecclesiastes. She made the lines disappear. What happened? Here is one example of her wisdom. Take the unlined numbers straight and three at the time. 492 + 618 = 1,110. Or, 834 + 276 = 1,110. If a 3 digit number crosses the center, it is its own number backwards. Thus, 258 + 852 = 1,110. Here are a couple of quotes from the book:
“The old straight track is a net or grid of numbers.
Often distances between holy sites are measured
By characteristic numbers of the 3 x 3 number square.
Examples include the Geomancer’s and the English mile.”
(The Geomancer’s mile is 14,400 feet, The English mile is 5,280 feet).
The spirit recited poetry to me on Oquaga Lake: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. The cover is the featured pictured. I was the house piano player for Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. It is in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Below is a youtube sample. Please share and keep checking this site.
Missing Tip on Great Pyramid is Found. It’s all about an aerial view. Below are examples of aerial lines that are part of the Nasca lines. These are in South America. Here are two prominent examples.
A giant spider carving is carved in the desert. It is about 148 feet long. The carving is a Peru pattern. Location, with other such figures, is between the Andes Mountains and Pacific Ocean. The special area is about 200 square miles. My source is Mysterious Places. It is edited by Jennifer Westwood.Jennifer Westwood (5 January 1940 – 12 May 2008) was a British author, broadcaster and folklorist. She was a Doctor of Philosophy . She had special interests in English Language, Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse. Her first book, Mediaeval Tales, was published in 1968. She was active committee member of The Folklore Society. Dr. Westwood undertook a variety of duties including editing its publications and helping other authors. As a broadcaster, she worked on programs produced for BBC Radio 4 and the corporation’s Radio Norfolk. Commonly known as “Jen”, after her second marriage she also authored books in the name of Jennifer Chandler.
A humming bird has spread out wings. It is made from a single spread out line. It is also a Nasca figure. It is one of 18 different carved giant figures on the plain.

Missing Tip of 5 Cubits and Actual Measurements Are Found by an Aerial View of a Number Square
A figure viewed from above looks flat. It the 3 x 3 number square, raise the center. Imagine it is pliable and be raised. The base still remains square. The five is elevated like the tip. Before you are dismissive of this thought consider the following: The perimeter around the Great Pyramid is 1110 cubits. My Source are the writings of the Reverend John Michell. His book is The View Over Atlantis. Look at the hidden number code. 492 + 618 = 1110. 438 + 672 = 1110. If three numbers cross, 951 + 159 =1110. This hidden code was shown to me on Oquaga Lake. I believe it was an American Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. They dwelled around the lake. Also, they were one of the few matriarchal tribes in the country. The women could even depose of a chief. The son in law had to live with his family in their dwelling. For years I was the piano player at Scotts Oquaga Lake House in Deposit, New York. The spirit visited me on walks. I often also led hikes through this mountainous region.
Conclusion: The missing tip source of the Great Pyramid were explained on Oquaga Lake. The lake is a former sacred American Indian location. I think that wonderful times are on the way. The wisdom of the American Indians will lead the way. Also, consider Isaiah: In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt” (Isa. 19:19, 20).
Lost Ancient Computer Code is Discovered. It has been hiding for millennium. It truly is like the Biblical grain of mustard seed. So what is the grain of mustard seed? Where is it hidden? Grain of Mustard Seed is the smallest of number squares. It is popular called the 3 x 3 square: Here is the traditional arrangement. Immediately below is a Biblical reference to this “Grain”.
20 ….because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”a
Gottfried Leibniz The modern binary number system, the basis for binary code, was invented by Gottfried Leibniz in 1679 and appears in his article Explication de l’Arithmétique Binaire. The full title is translated into English as the “Explanation of the Binary Arithmetic”.
Finding the Lost Ancient Computer Code
Many blogs on DSOworks.com are about aspects of the code. For example, the square perimeter around the Great Pyramid is 1,110 megalithic yards. In binary numbers 10¹ + 10² + 10³ = 1,110. Notice, all factors are binary. Professor Alexander Thom of Oxford University discovered the ubiquitous use of the megalithic yard.
The codes including a lost ancient computer code that is hidden in the number square were shown to me by an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I did not read about them anywhere. The Lennie Lenape lived around Oquaga Lake. I worked many summers on by the lake for the Scott family. I was hired by them to be the house piano player. The Scott family owns Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.
Look at the number square pictured above by triple numbers as follows: Each set of 3 numbers with its opposite 3 always total 1,110. Examples: 492 + 618 = 1110 Another: 834 + 276 = 1110. Any 3 numbers that uses number 5 as its central number is its own 1,110 number when added backwards to itself. Examples include 951 + 159 = 1110. Or, 357 + 753 = 1110. The square of three is code of peace
The Grain of Mustard Seed can move mountains. Acquiring peace is akin to moving a mountain. On the mountains around Oquaga Lake I learned about the code that accomplishes this feat.
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.
