Re: Knights Templar Maze?
Lots of music both old and new has been written using this type of
"magic square" musical numerology. Around the year 925 the musical
world had settled into a Staff of 4 lines and this was used for about
another 400 years before the the 5th line was introduced.
This type of musical thinking culminated eventually evolved into the
12 tone system of Schoenberg, Berg, Weber, and the recently deceased
Karlheinz Stockhausen. Numerology sequences were sometimes used by the
eclectic John Cage, (not to mention star charts).
J.S. Bach was famous for sneaking in his last name (h is b natural,
and b is b-flat in German) into his fugal compositions.
So could the Knights Templar have hidden messages in the music?
Surely! Just gotta pick the right tunes, I guess!

difference is 32. The square of nine is 81, and the square of seven
is 49, and the difference between them is 32, which solves the puzzle
on a lateral basis. However two other pairs of numbers satisfy the
condition that their subtracted squares also equal 32. Those are six
and two or 36 -4 =32; quite irrevalent here as such a pairing scheme
would never work to solve the puzzle, thus it is obvious.
> Clue 2: 33 shows the method of the code on a different dimension.The method of the code works both on a horizontal and vertical basis
as dual additions of sums from the outside edge inwards. On the
bottom half of the chart the the vertical sums add to 33. That is
part of the vertical code, but the horizontal is easier to follow as
a continuous rule. Every move after 32 will be matched to an outwards
formed sum adding to seven squared or 49. Those movements will be
exhausted when the pairings of numbers can no longer add to 49, but
must instead add to 81. The pairings in each case go up on one side
and down on the other, thus the pattern of future moves based on the
correct past moves as a following movement should be easily seen.

PEOPLE WERE LIKE THAT AND WE ONLY NEEDED TO BE PAIRED WITH OUR ANGEL
