The Language of the Universe

Philosophy [nature] is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes — I mean the universe — but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.”  — Galileo Galilei

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, 
for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.
By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.
— The Bible, Proverbs 3: 13-20

“That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”
— Hermes Trismegistus

“A tradition which has been credited by many learned men over the centuries is that the ancients encoded their knowledge of the world  in the dimensions of their sacred monuments.”  — John Michell

“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” — Nicola Tesla

The Language of the Divine Architect

The creation myths of many traditions describe the universe as the work of a Divine Architect who uses “sacred geometry” to unfold the dimensions of a beautiful cosmos, wisely designing every aspect of it, and governing by just proportions evidenced in the geometric shapes and processes of nature.

The language of God is mathematical language of numbers, proportions and (sacred) geometry.

“As Above, So Below” – these words circulate throughout occult and magical circles, and they come from Hermetic texts. The concept was first laid out in The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, in the words “That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”

The entire Universe (including our solar system, as well as atoms, DNA and life-forms) reveals the secrets of balance, rhythm, proportion and unity in diversity, the fractal  interconnection of parts with each other and the whole. This harmony is expressed by some “key” numbers: Fibonacci Series, Phi, Pi and “e”.

The first 21 Fibonacci numbers: 
0     1     1     2     3     5     8     13     21     34     55     89     144     233     377     610     987     1597     2584     4181     6765

A simple number pattern, known as the Fibonacci Series, sits at the heart of  the marvelous architecture and patterns of life and growth.

These few equations are the “seeds” of  God’s “Grand Design” ( God’s “fingerprint”):

Pi = (6/5) * phi2

 Euler’s Identity Equation:

e   – is Euler’s number, the base of natural logarithms
i   –  is the imaginary unit, which satisfies i2 = sqrt(-1)
Pi – is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter

phi- is the the golden ratio number 1.618034

Mathematical beauty of Euler’s Identity

Euler’s identity is considered by many to be remarkable for its mathematical beauty. These three basic arithmetic operations occur exactly once each: addition, multiplication, and exponentiation. The identity also links five fundamental mathematical constants:
The number 0, the additive identity.
The number 1, the multiplicative identity.
The number Pi, which is ubiquitous in trigonometry, the geometry of Euclidean space, and analytical mathematics (Pi = 3.14159265…)
The number e, the base of natural logarithms, which occurs widely in mathematical and scientific analysis (e = 2.718281828…). Both “pi” and “e” are transcendental numbers.
The number i, the imaginary unit of the complex numbers, a field of numbers that contains the roots of all polynomials (that are not constants), and whose study leads to deeper insights into many areas of algebra and calculus, such as integration in calculus.
Furthermore, in algebra and other areas of mathematics, equations are commonly written with zero on one side of the equals sign.

A poll of readers conducted by The Mathematical Intelligencer magazine named Euler’s identity as the “most beautiful theorem in mathematics”. Another poll of readers that was conducted by Physics World magazine, in 2004, chose Euler’s identity tied with Maxwell’s equations (of electromagnetism) as the “greatest equation ever”  — Wikipedia

 A simple number pattern, known as the Fibonacci Series, sits at the heart of  the marvelous architecture and patterns of life and growth.

 Pi and phi

Pi = (6/5) * phi2

 300 * Pi = 360 * phi2

For a circle with radius = 1 we get this equation for
(close approximation of) its circumference:

2 * Pi = (360/150) * phi2

There is another way to write this equation:

Pi – Phi2 = 0.2 * phi2

Lets calculate the value:

Pi – phi2  = 0.5236
this number in meters is equal 20.614 inches = 1 Royal Egyptian Cubit
(unit of length used by ancient Egyptians during construction of pyramids)


“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” –-N.Tesla

Perhaps Tesla had in mind another thing altogether.  It basically boiled down to energy/field/consciousness, which equates in to electricity/magnetism/consciousness, that made up Trinity. Energy is your divine spark, and field is the area you exist within. The 2 things that allow consciousness to isolate itself is electricity and magnetism. NOTHING in the physical universe exists outside energy and field…only then can you have consciousness reside inside a material existence.

3:6:9 … Perhaps these numbers were intentionally expressed by the pyramids of Giza…?
There are 9 pyramids on the Giza plateau: 3 large pyramids and 6 small “satellite” pyramids. Also, the design of the Second (Khafre) Pyramid of Giza  is based on ratio 9:6.

Note: 6:5 is another special ratio used in ancient times

The Fibonacci series has a pattern that repeats every 24 numbers

Numeric reduction is a technique used in analysis of numbers in which all the digits of a number are added together until only one digit remains.  As an example, the numeric reduction of 256 is 4 because 2+5+6=13 and 1+3=4.  Applying numeric reduction to the Fibonacci series produces an infinite series of 24 repeating digits:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 4, 3, 7, 1, 8, 9, 8, 8, 7, 6, 4, 1, 5, 6, 2, 8, 1, 9

If you take the first 12 digits and add them to the second twelve digits and apply numeric reduction to the result, you find that they all have a value of 9.

1st 12 numbers:                                              1    1    2    3    5    8    4    3    7    1    8    9
2nd 12 numbers:                                             8    8    7    6    4    1    5    6    2    8    1    9
Numeric reduction – Add rows 1 and 2:             9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9   18
Final numeric reduction – Add digits of result:    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9    9

This pattern was contributed both by Joseph Turbeville and then again by a mathematician by the name of Jain.

Marko Rodin and God’s Particle

Marko Rodin has indeed discovered natures secret about 3,6, and 9.
“We have to cast out all 9’s.” What does that mean? It means that any number that is above the value 9 or one place value is going to be added together to get a single digit.
So this means if we have a number 26, we add 2+6 to get 8, which is its “archetype”. If we do this for all numbers while doubling and halving, we get a pattern.
This. The secret to the Universe is DOUBLING and HALVING.

Let’s double the number 1 and found out what pattern we get.

1  1
2  2
4  4
8  8
16  7 (1+6=7)
32  5 (3+2=5)

64  1 (6+4=10, 1+0=1)
128  2 (1+2+8=11, 1+1=2)
256  4 (2+5+6=13, 1+3=4)
512  8 (5+1+2=8)
1024  7 (1+0+2+4=7)
2048  5 (2+0=4+8=14, 1+4=5)

Actually, every 6 sets repeats into infinity in this way.
You can also do the same by halving, or dividing the 1 into many parts.
Anyway.. there is more, like how 3, 6, and 9 are never present amongst other numbers in the double scheme.

12 (1+2=3)
24 (2+4=6)
48 (4+8=12, 1+2=3)
96 (9+6=15, 1+5=6)

3 and 6’s are constantly oscillating back and forth between each other in the doubling and halving scheme.

Now let’s double 9.
18 (1+8=9)
27 (2+7=9)
36 (3+6=9)
45 (4+5=9)
54 etc. starts over backwards here.

So 9 is the unchanging, unwavering number that never really loses its true identity, even though it is undergoing a constant state changing.
Watch Marko Rodins videos on YouTube and just try to understand what he’s saying. Basically he’s found the math to the real “God Particle” or particle of Spirit, known as Brahman in the Vedas, and he has shown how it can be observed, but not with physical instruments.

Significant Numbers

Besides sacred Tetractys, these numbers are considered very important in Nature:

The Number 33

  • A normal human spine has 33 vertebrae when the bones that form the coccyx are counted individually
  • 33 is, according to the Newton scale, the temperature at which water boils
  • The atomic number of arsenic
  • The divine name Elohim appears 33 times in the story of creation in the opening chapters of Genesis
  • Jesus’s age when he was crucified in 33 A.D.
  • Jesus performed 33 recorded miracles
  • 33 is not only a numerical representation of “the Star of David,” but also the numerical equivalent of AMEN: 1+13+5+14=33
  • the highest degree in the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

The Number 81

  • The 81 stable Chemical Elements in Nature
  • Prime Factors of 81=3x3x3x3.
  • 81 is a Square Number 81=9×9
  • 81 “generates” all digits of the decimal system:
    (10/81)= 0.12345679 012345679 012345679012346 (recurring infinitely)
  • The Saros number of the solar eclipse series which began on -322 May 12 and ended on 958 June. The duration of Saros series 81 was 1280.1 years, and it contained 72 solar eclipses. Further, the number of lunar eclipse series which began on -20 February 19 and ended on 1296 April. The duration of Saros series 81 was 1316.2 years, and it contained 74 lunar eclipses.

Plato’s Number

Plato’s number is a number enigmatically referred to by Plato in his dialogue the Republic.

Below is a typical text from a relatively recent translation of Republic 546 BC:

“Now for divine begettings there is a period comprehended by a perfect number, and for mortal by the first in which augmentations dominating and dominated when they have attained to three distances and four limits of the assimilating and the dissimilating, the waxing and the waning, render all things conversable and commensurable with one another, whereof a basal four-thirds wedded to the pempad yields two harmonies at the third augmentation, the one the product of equal factors taken one hundred times, the other of equal length one way but oblong,-one dimension of a hundred numbers determined by the rational diameters of the pempad lacking one in each case, or of the irrational lacking two; the other dimension of a hundred cubes of the triad. And this entire geometrical number is determinative of this thing, of better and inferior births.”

There is no real agreement neither about the meaning nor about the value of the number. It has been called also the ‘Geometrical number’ or the ‘Nuptial number’ (the Number of the Bride’’),and designated by various other means. Comments on this passage have appeared ever since it has been written.
Without any consensus in the argumentation 216 is a most frequently proposed value for it, but 3,600 or 12,960,000 are also commonly considered.

Most interpreters argue that the value of Plato’s number is 216 because it is the cube of 6 i.e. 6^3=216 which is remarkable for being also a sum of the cubes for the Pythagorean triple 3, 4, and 5

216 = 63=33+43+53

Plato mentions in his Laws that 5040 is a convenient number to use for dividing many things (including both the citizens and the land of a state) into lesser parts.  Claiming it to be the ideal population of a city, he thought that the people’s well-being depended almost as much on the number as on justice.  5040 as it turns out is a very special number.

One of the reasons 5040 was so highly revered was because it is a superior highly composite number.  Translation: No other number below it has as many divisors.  5040 has the same amount of divisors as there are minutes in an hour, or seconds in a minute.  5040 is a very practical number, being divisible by 1-12, except 11.  There are only ten of these rare numbers below a million, and it just so happens that the combined radii of Earth and Moon in miles equals 5040 (99.97%).
The angular measure of the Platonic solids can be combined to sum 5040. The total angles of the octahedron and icosahedron, which Plato associated with Air and Water, conveniently add up to 5040.  It turns up everywhere.

  • 5040 is tied to 7, and 7 is the middle ground among the Decad (the numbers 1-10)
  • 5040 = 1x2x3x4x5x6x7 = 7!
  • 5040 = 7x8x9x10 = 10!/6! = 7!
  • 7! + (10!/6!) = Minutes in a Week = Mean diameters of Earth and Moon in miles = 10,080

The Number 137

The fine structure constant, a dimensionless physical constant, approximates 1/137, and the astronomer Arthur Eddington conjectured in 1929 that its reciprocal was in fact precisely the integer 137, which he claimed could be “obtained by pure deduction”. The experimental values for the constant were closer to 137.036… The fine structure constant continues to convince people that the universe has numerological fine tuning.

Ancient Knowledge

Truly it has been said that there is nothing new under the sun,
for knowledge is revealed and is submerged again, even as a nation rises and falls.
Here is a system, tested throughout the ages, but lost again and again by ignorance or prejudice,
in the same way that great nations have risen and fallen
and been lost to history beneath the desert sands and in the ocean depths.


Various societies through history, seeking to live in accord with the cosmic harmony, modeled their realms on the Divine Architect’s “sacred geometry” plan, creating cosmologically oriented societies which mirrored on Earth the celestial twelve-part zodiac. Everything, including their myths, laws, rituals, architecture, language, literature, music, furniture, coins, weights and measures, was integrated in a unified harmonious scheme. Ancient societies used it in the planning and construction of religious structures such as temples, churches, mosques, religious monuments, altars, tabernacles; as well as for sacred spaces such as temenoi, sacred groves, village greens and holy wells, and the creation of religious art.  It seems that all of the ancient sites were astronomically oriented and their architectural design was based on principles of  the “sacred geometry” of nature.

Ancient metrology was based on units of measure related to astronomy and geodesy (the measurement and representation of the Earth shape and size).

Ancient cultures knew about sacred geometry reflected in nature and derived their individual measures of length from it. Many ancient writings suggest that this knowledge was given to mankind by god(s). The ‘Gods’ of certain cultures could be early post-flood founders a few generations after Noah. In Egypt, building overseers required the Royal Egyptian Cubit to be calibrated against a precision standard at regular intervals. Failure to do so was punishable by death.  This extreme respect for the royal cubit indicates an important legacy, like a standard handed down from the ‘Gods’.

According to the “Secrets of the Great Pyramid” (by L. Stecchini) the Egyptian measures of length, originating from at least the 3rd millennium BC, were directly derived from the circumference of the earth with an amazing accuracy. On page 346, his claim is that the Egyptian measurement was equal to 40,075,000 meters, which compared to the International Spheroid of 40,076,596 meters gives an error of 0.004%. No consideration seems to be made to the question of, on purely technical and procedural grounds, how the early Egyptians, in defining their cubit, could have achieved a degree of accuracy that to our current knowledge can only be achieved with very sophisticated equipment and techniques.

Note: Egyptians calculated polar radius as 12,000,000 Royal Cubits (of 0.525 m per cubit) which is equivalent of 6300 km (modern value for the polar radius of the  Earth is 6,357km)

The Sacred Cubit (aka Royal Cubit) was used in constructing buildings and monuments and in surveying in ancient Egypt. Royal Cubit consists of 28 units, digits ( 7 palms of 4 digits). The names of divisions of royal cubit may suggest anatomical origin, however the division numbers indicate astronomical origin of the cubit (7 days per week, 28 days lunar calendar, 4 weeks per lunar month)…

Note: Here is an  interesting connection between modern and ancient units of length with astronomy and geodesy:  1 foot = 12 inches,  1 mile = 5280 feet = 63,360 inches = 4800 Sumerian Feet = 3200 Sumerian Cubits.

There is great confusion today concerning metrology, the history of measurement systems around the world. Beyond the child’s tales of the “foot” deriving from some king’s foot, measurement was actually part of a sacred system of knowledge established in prehistory and based on timeless truths seen in the harmony of the cosmos. Standards of measure were everywhere framed upon never-changing principles of number, in particular, the interplay of natural tension between ten and twelve, and the dimensions of the turning Earth. Except for the survival of the English system in the U.S., most other traditional systems of measurement worldwide have succumbed to the “easy” and modern, but inferior “metric” system, which uses only ten, is divorced from nature and the human scale, and requires its users to conform to the measuring tools themselves, not to the nature of the objects measured, as was traditionally done.

The Cosmological Diagram (The New Jerusalem Diagram)

The Sacred Geometric Community has fallen short of the grand prize, the New Jerusalem and her fullness of purpose, they have at least seen, especially through the apostolic efforts of John Michell, the suburbs of the Holy City and from this afar view have come imminently close to her profound and universal meaning; and certainly by framing their quests for universal understanding and sustainable social systems in terms of the Celestial City (or as in Plato’s case, Magnesia).  Their approach to the City Whose Builder and Maker is God (even though that “god” is NOT the One of revelation and authority held by their antagonists amongst the aforesaid monotheists), as we all, is seen through a glass darkly but, nevertheless, they are searching to unlock the mystery of the New Jerusalem and to confirm their findings through geodetic discovery.

Another version of the NJ Diagram is Magical Seal of Solomon.

In Medieval Jewish, Christian and Islamic legends, the Seal of Solomon was a magical signet ring said to have been possessed by King Solomon, which variously gave him the power to command demons, genies (or jinni), or to speak with animals. In some versions the seal was made of brass and iron, carved with the Name of God, and set with four jewels. In later versions the ring simply bore the symbol now called the Star of David (hexagram), often within a circle, usually with the two triangles interlaced  rather than intersecting.

To them the “geometric construction” of the New Jerusalem presents cosmological realities which govern the universe – a universe numerically understood far more by the “ancients” who have left us a testament in their objects and writings to these realities whereby John’s vision of the Holy City is the culmination of all their most vivid aspirations; to wit, the elaborate geometric configurations from the New Jerusalem Diagram to intriguing planetary measurements of circles, squares, triangles, polygons of all sorts which provide immediate connectivity between earth and heaven’s realms – as well as those earthly objects of antiquity which replicate the heavenly dimensions of Paradise, and all within the context, preservation and accuracies of antiquity:

“Another relic of the archaic tradition that produced these divisions of time is our present system of measurement by units of feet, furlongs, and miles, with the acre as the unit of land measuring.  Those measures, which are still found the most convenient today, were canonized and held sacred, because not only do they relate both to the human and to the astronomical scales, expressing the unity between macrocosm and microcosm, but they bring out the same numbers in the dimensions of the solar system as were given to the units of time.”  — Dimensions of Paradise, Michell, p. 117.

One of the foremost metrologists of Teotihuacán is, without equivocation, Dr. Hugh Harleston Jr., who during the late 1960s and 1970s measured this “ritual city” from a “…unified geometrical composition whose intervals are clearly defined, and Harleston was soon able to establish the basic unit of measure in its dimensions.  This proved to be a unit of 1.0594 meters, which Harleston called the Standard Teotihuacán Unit (STU) or Hunab after the Mayan word, adopted by the Aztecs, for Measure.  He also recognized the geodetic significance of that unit:  1.0594063 meters is equivalent to the ‘Jewish rod’ of 3.4757485 ft., the same unit which represents the width of the Stonehenge lintels, a six-millionth part of the earth’s polar radius and one part in 37,800,000 of its mean circumference.” (Ref. The New View Over Atlantis, Dr. John Michell, 1995, p. 131).

Also:  “Harleston says of Teotihuacan’s builders: ‘When they draw a line, they’re telling you an area. When they draw an area, they’re telling you a volume.  When they put volume, they’re telling you time.”

Geodesy and geodetic placement of “sacred sites” of ancient origins has long been affirmatively suspect – especially, the Great Pyramid of Giza.  Geodesy involves a fundamental understanding of plane or solid geometry, astronomy relative to latitude and longitude with latitude of more recent vintage since ships-clock (cir. 1540) came into vogue.   These geodetic or geometric relationships both on earth and in the heavens are a frequent haunt of pagans and occultists and of novel interest to science – though science with its unfortunate proliferation of skeptic is apt to go off into “metric tangents” and miss out on all the “fun!”For quite some time researchers have been documenting the astronomical alignments of ancient archaeological and megalithic stone sites all over the world. But discovery of their geodesic alignment has been more recent. Geodesy refers to the theory and practice of surveying to determine the position of specific points on Earth’s surface. It is distinguished from plane surveying in that it deals with areas whose dimensions are so great that the curvature of the Earth must be taken into account. Geometric geodesy involves the creation of a mathematical model of Earth, while physical geodesy studies Earth’s gravity field.  The discovery of the precise alignment of Mayan sites along the 90th parallel is significant because it demonstrates that the Maya were aware of Earth’s curvature and knew the advanced formulas used in geodesy.

Note: Carl Munck, archaeocryptographer, introduces an ancient Pyramid Matrix, in which ancient monuments – across the globe – encode their exact positions with respect to latitude and longitude. The science of decoding these monuments is called archaeocryptography. For latitude, ancient monuments were referenced to the same (modern) equator. For longitude, these monuments were referenced to a former Giza, Egypt Prime Meridian – discovered by Munck – that ran from pole to pole across the Great Pyramid.

PS1  The Forgotten Harmonical Science of the Bible

Note: The following segment is from “The forgotten harmonical science of the Bible” by Ernest G. McClain

“…but thou hast ordered all things in measure and number and weight” — Wisdom of Solomon 11:20  (1611 King James Bible)

Biblical creation “by measure, number and weight”  required God to possess a fluency in arithmetic not always shared by the faithful. And so Bible arithmetic of the first millennium BC eventually became incomprehensible.

Today much of the astronomy, arithmetic, and music attributed to Classical Greece is documented to Semitic Babylon in the second millennium B.C.   Mesopotamian fluency in calculation–in the age of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–already was 3000 years ahead of 16th century AD Europe. Babylonian exile in the sixth century BC made accessible to the Jews anything not already known.

With help of Philo of Alexandria I am reading Divine prescience as pre-scientific musical insight encoded in tribal mythology.  Biblical emphasis on twelve sons as eponymous ancestors of twelve tribes who build an altar of twelve stones concerns twelve idealized “boundary markers” in a cyclic octave needed for Davidic musicology. The pattern was long symbolized in the concentric circles of the Babylonian astrolabe, adjusted monthly to correlate the watches with the varying lengths of day and night.  Figure 2 strips all star data from van der Waerden’s reconstruction, and converts his base-60 water-clock weights (for full watches in the outer circle, and half and quarter watches in the inner circles) to base 10 arithmetic.

The astrolabe’s naked geometry and simple arithmetical doubling expose the idealist mind set which guided the evolution of Chaldaean sciences — converted to priestly ritual by Jewish ingenuity. Twelve ideal months of 30 fictitious days were superimposed on the heavens, and the ratio of longest night to shortest day, known to be about 3:2, was computed as 2:1, so that only music offered a “manipulable” example which conformed to these rounded measures.

Concentric circles anticipate Ezekiel’s “wheel in a wheel” as the throne of heaven. Within each circle maxima and minima water clock weights of 2:1 anticipate the ratio of cyclic octaves. But equal weight differences between successive months (reversing at the solstices in months III and IX) had to give way to proportional differences between successive semitones when this geometry was applied to music. Rational tonal    arithmetic, cleverly mimed by Ezekiel, could anticipate this conceptual equality only via a slight but cumulative excess or deficiency, for in a cyclic octave of ratio 1:2 all equal divisions are defined by irrationals. Thus the Holy Land of a spiritual Israel had to be conquered conceptually in intricate warfare between the excess of primordial “giants” (products of 3) and the deficiency of human “weaklings” (products of 5) among rational numbers, and “weaklings” won only with Divine help in circumventing the lack of real number. Bible narrative brilliantly allegorizes every aspect of Diophantine approximation to modern Equal Temperament, and it does so with exhausting respect for numerical detail–making the Bible a priceless repository of tuning lore and its elementary number theory. The “unhewn” stones of Jewish altars are integers, meaning the natural or counting numbers to which harmonical theory normally was restricted, although its calculation demanded great fluency with reciprocal fractions. From the perspective of any reference pitch all integers except 2n necessarily “sinned” by “missing the mark” to some degree because octave doubling imposed, a priori, a universal matrix (“womb”) tied to integral powers of 2. Problems arose immediately with division into 2 equal parts (requiring the square root of 2) and 3 parts (requiring the cube root of 2).

Sensory intuition always fails at some level of arithmetical subtlety where least noticeable differences create a Platonic “no man’s land” of uncertainty. Greek, Jewish, and Chinese cultures are unanimous in accepting the comma of 80:81 as its convenient normative value. It is the difference between a “giant” wholetone of 8:9 (worth 204 cents in modern logarithmic measure) and a “human weakling” of 9:10 (worth only 190). They are approximations to the sixth root of 2 worth 200 cents, the value necessary to divide an octave 1:2 into six equal parts. How Davidic tuning theory reconciles this conflict becomes the central focus of Bible allegory  And in the sixth century BC only God could have solved this problem numerically–although any geometer could map results to his own satisfaction for the astrolabe pointed the way.

For musician/philosophers of Philo’s temperament,  tuning theory may always have been a contest in the soul between the potential tyranny of masculine intellection, considered mankind’s very highest power, and the relative benevolence of our feminine sensorium, where least noticeable differences create some measure of perceptual tolerance. Wisdom required a congenial mating between our own masculine concepts and feminine percepts, and sometimes rewarded it with the experience of transcendent beauty in “out of the body” adventures like Philo enjoyed when listening to the antiphonal singing of segregated sexes in his Alexandrine synagogue. I am trying here to articulate Bible harmonics in Philo’s spirit while paying closer attention to its computational logic.

Philo’s insight  proves to decode most (though not yet all) Bible numerology. And that decoding exposes the poetic metaphors in which the Jews embodied algebra. As we gain a stronger hold on this forgotten Bible arithmetic, the literary genius of authorial allegory reveals its power to encode structure and meaning on two parallel levels: 1) in an esoteric arithmetic probably never understood except by experts in computation, but therefore needing only cryptic allusion; and 2) in homely parables which make symbolic meaning clear even to the illiterate, and thus protect priestly allegory against any accusation of elitism. I am concerned here mainly with the forgotten tonal logic in biblical numerology, employed with perfect discipline by Bible authors from the first page of Genesis to the last page of Revelation–where Jewish playfulness fades into Christian dogma.


Bible harmonics as prelude to Jewish philosophy

Creatures conceived during the seven days of the creation week (like all fruits containing their own seeds) are bid to “be fruitful and multiply” because multiplicationis the only operation relevant to ratio theory. And 7 is systematically expanded into the 7-year priestly cycle of  7×360=2,520 days, or 2×2,520=5,040 “days plus nights,” enlarging the tonal system at each step. This early example of combinatorics, disciplined by a set theory borrowed from music, thus proves most satisfactory on the monochord where all detail can be integrated.

Both Ezekiel and Plato project their arithmetic into similar concentric circles“a wheel in a wheel,” functioning as the throne of an idealized heaven. Plato’s analysis of 5,040 fits many of Ezekiel’s metaphors and thus facilitates decoding the sameness and difference between nascent Greek science and traditional Jewish wisdom. This is the cross-cultural ambiance in which Philo was  educated and about which he wrote with equal passion for Greek learning and for his own religion, which shared the same models. The music of the synagogue embodied their union and freed his soul to roam where it would. The two musical modes decoded from Bible numerology have proved to be associated historically with the mode of the Torah (Greek Dorian) and the mode of the Prophets (Greek Phrygian) in ways Philo helps us understand; they are the two modes Plato admitted in model cities.

The importance of the priestly 7-year calendrical cycle is emphasized in Ezekiel   39:10 where God insists that after his destruction of Israel’s enemies the country will  have no “need to take wood out of the field or cut down any out of the forests” for a period of seven years, “for they will make their fires of the weapons” of warfare. I   analyze the tonal content in 5,040 “days plus nights” as furnishing Jewish “weapons” of spiritual warfare not merely on this circumstantial biblical evidence but because this also follows Jewish philosophical precedent. In Sepher Yezirah, “A Book on Creation” written perhaps about the fourth century AD and considered by some to be the founding document in Jewish philosophy,  factorial seven meaning 1x2x3x4x5x6x7=5,040 is decomposed with a cryptic competence which Philo did not possess personally, and so I  fit his musicology into its schema. In this later document the Jews have tired of musical games and are putting harmonics behind them in favor of more general philosophical concerns. Thus it was the honest urge toward more general meaning which eventually helped Judaism to forget its debts to music. Sepher Yezirah elegantly directs attention to the systematic expansion of the harmonical system through successive factorials.

Two stones build two houses, three stones build six houses, four build twenty-four houses, five build one hundred and twenty houses, six build seven hundred and twenty houses and seven build five thousand and forty houses. From thence further go and reckon what the mouth cannot express and the ear cannot hear.

Factorial 7 leads us to “what the mouth cannot express and the ear cannot hear.” Today we are generally introduced to quantified tone ratios via a harmonic series on C. I invent a Philonic preview to ease readers into the past.


PS2 Cosmic Intelligence

Distinguish between those who understand and those who agree.
He who understands the Teaching will not tarry in applying it to life;
He who agrees will nod and extol the Teaching as remarkable wisdom,
but will not apply this wisdom to his life.
There are many who have agreed, but they are like a withered forest,
fruitless and without shade. Only decay awaits them.
Those who understand are few, but like a sponge they absorb the precious
knowledge and are ready to cleanse the horrors of the world with the precious liquid.   — Buddha

The following are few quotes from “THE ILLUMINATI’S SIX DIMENSIONAL UNIVERSE” by Adam Weishaupt

Mathematics is in fact the surest proof of cosmic mind and intelligence. It is absurd to propose, as materialistic science does, that mindless matter is miraculously able to organize itself in a host of complex ways according to  the “laws of physics”. No scientist has ever explained where the laws of physics come from and how they are possible. Why those laws and not others? Why any laws at all? Why not eternal randomness and chaos? Why  should matter be subject to law at all? Why should matter have any connection with mathematics? In fact, the cosmos “learned” mathematics over many eons by nothing more sophisticated than trial and error, evolutionary  natural selection and dialectical progression: the principles that have guided all existence since time immemorial. The cosmos in itself- dimensionless energy – continually “spilled” out of itself into dimensionality. It is the  nature of Will never to be “contained”. It will always try to reach beyond itself.

This was a haphazard process since dimensionality is mathematical and mathematics did not yet exist in any coherent way. Each time Will entered the domain of partial, incomplete dimensionality, it learned some new item of mathematical information. After countless “experiments”, the Will had learned to count and understand geometrical shapes. Not in any conscious sense – more like the ultimate autistic savant. Its grasp of mathematics was strictly intuitive. Mathematics was the first language ever learned by the cosmos; it is thereby the fundamental language of existence. It is the basis of all order and thought, of logic and reason, of mind, of consciousness. It is the essential framework providing the categories of understanding. It is the sine qua non. Mathematics can be considered as the true version of the Platonic Forms: eternal, perfect, unchanging, existing in a permanent ideal state to which the whole cosmos has access. They were not given to the cosmos as perfect Forms; rather they dialectically evolved and when they reached their Omega Point they were subject to no further change; they had achieved perfection and completion. Plato’s domain of perfect Forms is the domain of mathematics and it is now hard-wired into the cosmos (we might say that this domain is stored in the core memory of the cosmic mind, the Read-Only memory, to use a computing term.) The Will learned through its endless experimentation that only “complete” mathematics is stable and provides a proper framework for organization and order: all of Plato’s  mathematical Forms must be used, not an incomplete subset. And so came the miraculous moment when the r = o dimensionless cosmos of mind deliberately poured itself out into the r > o dimensional cosmos, according to a perfect intuitive understanding of complete mathematics as eternal Platonic Forms. Formlessness flowed through the domain of mathematical Forms and emerged in the myriad forms we observe in Nature. Plato’s  mathematical Forms are the origins of the laws of physics that shape the world we observe around us. They dictated the creation of the material world. This supreme, defining event was none other than the Big Bang itself.

It is essential for the cosmos to externalise itself, to physicalize itself, to alienate itself, in order to dialectically overcome that alienation and reach self-consciousness. The teleological purpose of the cosmos is precisely that: to attain self-consciousness, to actualise all of the latent powers, potential and possibilities of raw mind. No scientist has ever explained how mind originates in dead, mindless matter. The truth is that the arche is alive and minded and always has been. There is no dualism between life and death, between mind and non-mind, between consciousness and non-consciousness. Everything exists on a continuum of actualisation of life, mind and consciousness. Humans have more of it (more actualisation) than plants which have more of it than rocks which have more of it than interstellar dust. The cosmos is based on monism, not dualism. To be precise, it is a  dialectical monism. All dualistic systems- those based on two radically different concepts such as mind/matter, death/life, consciousness/non-consciousness -all fail for exactly the same reason: two unlike substances cannot interact.


Humanity, for the most part, lacks imagination. People can’t see beyond what seems “obvious”. They have such a strong attachment to common sense that they prefer it to reason. Their “gut instincts” are tied to common sense, not to reason. In a “fight or flight” situation, it will be a rare person who pauses to reason his way out of the dilemma. Leibniz said that the best account of the world is the one that is “simplest in hypotheses and the richest in phenomena.” If you were God, isn’t this exactly the creative principle that you would employ i.e. the simplest solution that provides the most possibilities? The universe appears immensely complex, yet  humanity, via science, seems to have made a remarkable degree of sense of much of it.  If the universe is based on rational principles (i.e. is not some random, lawless, chaotic, incomprehensible arena), why should the exercise of reason be unable to reveal its secrets? If the principles of reason are universal then they apply to  God as much as humanity; the better we become at reasoning, the more we become Godlike, as Plato and Aristotle were keen to assert. The biggest obstacle we have is that our minds have evolved in a way  that makes it difficult, though not impossible, for us to discern the true nature of reality. If common sense and the evidence of our senses on the one hand, and profound scientific, logical and  mathematical reasoning on the other, are not aligned then this means that we are continually deceived by what we take for granted.

Ill-informed non -scientists often sneer at science. In truth, they have no comprehension of what science says and they refuse to budge from their common sense opinions by which they are permanently enslaved. Certain  people have an enormous interest in maintaining a common sense set of opinions because, crucially, no one needs to be an expert to make pronouncements based on common sense. Common sense could be defined as Lowest  Common Denominator thinking – i.e. the most basic, least sophisticated, least demanding level of thinking. Common sense thinking favours stupid people because it is infinitely closer to their view of the world than it is to the  abstract, complex, visionary thinking of geniuses. Common sense is all about “dumbing down”.


Plato complained that he had created the perfect state, but where were the perfect people? The tragedy of humanity is that it is held back by humanity. It has never turned to its greatest minds. It has never placed its trust in the most meritorious. It has never valued “heresy” – the ability to choose  differently. Instead, it has burned the heretics.

If humanity were intelligent, the Abrahamic religions would not exist. In the future, when humanity is guided by Illumination and is on course to achieve its divine potential, the Abrahamic faiths will seem like a bad, far  distant, primitive memory of horror, and no one will be able to comprehend that humans once held such absurd beliefs. Once someone acknowledges that common sense is wrong then it follows that they are placing  themselves at the mercy of experts, of the geniuses of the human race who have developed abstract and bewilderingly complicated techniques for understanding the truth of existence.

If advanced mathematics is the language of Nature rather than common sense opinion then most people are screwed, right?

What’s the point of hanging on to simplistic and false opinions? To comfort yourself? To pander to your vanity? Deep down, most people realize they don’t have a clue about the mysteries of life. Some have a spiritual yearning that brings them to websites like ours, and they are to be applauded, yet the vast majority arrogantly dismiss anything they don’t understand and bury their heads in the sand like the good ostriches they are. They lap up the religions of faith because these don’t demand anything difficult of them.

What is a believer? He is someone who thinks that he is a good person and that he is certainly going to heaven. Well, that’s not a hard position to hold, is it? If you ask such a person about quantum mechanics, relativity theory, advanced mathematics, advanced philosophy, advanced theology, he won’t have a clue what you’re talking about, but what does he care? He’s a believer. He’s saved. God loves him. End of story. Now you can see why the religions of faith have spread like a cancer across the globe. They require no knowledge. In fact, they despise knowledge. Never forget Martin Luther’s insane declaration, “Reason is the Devil’s whore.” The Abrahamic faiths are all about common sense in day-to-day matters -obeying rules, laws and commandments set by the powers-that-be in the name of “God” -with the mysteries of life being consigned to a  compartment  marked, “No need to worry. If I believe in God I will be OK.” They can then get on with the rest of their lives -watching junk TV, eating junk food, getting drunk, getting high, getting married, doing dreary jobs,  waving the  patriotic flag, shopping, going to church on the Sabbath, going to the baseball game or football match yada yada yada: all the sad, soulless nonsense that passes as the “glory” of humanity.

In fact, most of us are sad robots on permanent Auto Pilot. We insult the glories of which we are truly capable, that we could attain if we succeeded in releasing our higher selves.
It’s time to stop shopping, to stop believing, to stop being enslaved by common sense. It’s time for humanity to turn to knowledge, to Gnosticism. Ordinary people would like to think that common sense is the right  tool for understanding the world, and that philosophers, scientists and mathematicians are wrong and perverse to seek “deeper” truths of reason that contradict common sense.
