Scrapbook of Gematria Entry: Magic Squares and Doric Columns

I had already heard of the connection of the square and compass with the magic square of Saturn, a  grid where all of the sums in any direction equal 15. Each side of the square will have a row of 3 -15's. which makes every side equal to 45.

Also, when you connect the areas in numeric order, it traces out a square and compass pattern.

I had never heard of the Jupiter's magic square, where all of the vertical, horizontal and diagonal numeric sequences add up to 34.  The inner square also adds up to 34.




When considering this, I remembered that the temple of Zeus in Olympia, Greece was built with 34 outer Doric columns, as shown in the diagram above.

Now, depending if you start from 0 or 1, 34 is either the 9th or 10th Fibonacci number. After 34, the next Fibonacci number is 55.

0+1 = 1|1+1=2|1+2=3|2+3=5|3+5=8|5+8=13|
8+13=21|13+21=34|21+34=55

With 34 as the 9th Fibonacci number and 55 as the 10th, there's an interesting sync when one considers that  sum of all the numbers from 1 to 10 adds up to 55.

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 = 55

Doric column = 55 ER
Temple of Zeus = 55 ER
Cycles of Saturn = 55 ER

Thirty-four Doric Columns = 117...Hey, today 11/7. Coincidences!
