The Quadrivium

The Quadrivium consist of forms of Number.  It is to be used in conjunction to the Trivium and consists of the classical subjects of Mathematics, Geometry, Music, Astronomy. 

Modern methods as they were known as at that ancient time when Pythagoras was given credit for putting this together.   His commonality he used is Number.  Nature does not contradict itself.

This side of number is mostly hidden in today's standards of education.

Number has so many qualities and is much more than a way to add things up.  The numbers have another life almost another story and the qualities of making analogies.

Geometry is number in space
Music is number in time (harmonic theory),
Astronomy is number in space and time.

One ... Unity
Two... First Division  female
Three... Triad ., All and Complete cycle .. Male
Four ... First instance of encompassment (box)
Five.... First number of life.. five marries male and female (2 and 3)  relate to apples, flowers, hands and feet.
Six... First perfect number. Its factors all add up to six   (one perfect number between one and ten = 6 .  One perfect number between ten and one hundred = 28 and one perfect number between 100 and a 1000 = 496
Also related to its being a perfect number, 496 is a harmonic divisor number, since the number of proper divisors of 496 divided by the sum of the reciprocals of its divisors, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, 248 and 496, (the harmonic mean), yields an integer, 5 in this case.From Reality (shot gun moment)  to a focus and back to reality again to take action.
Observation. .  Diagnosis .. Prognosis ... ACTION (treatment)
Observation, hypothesis ..  Extrapolation, Experiment

Venus draws a five fold pattern around Earth every 8 years..  A pentagram inside a circle is created when Venus comes close to the earth every 588 days.. This is a symbol of the US Airforce.

Gene Odening interview, Part 2 – “The QUADRIVIUM” – #050 (+ video)

In tonight’s show we continue our discussion on the Trivium and discuss the Quadrivium with Gene Odening. Here we continue to learn about learning, logic, critical thinking, Hegelian dialectics, Plato, the Trivium, the Quadrivium, the 7 liberal arts, and many other facets of human cognizance.
