Magical square and it's background story
Magical square was every time important part of chinese mythology and first mentions are dated around year 650 before Christus. They have remained up to novadays in the form of various square networks. Legend of Lo Shu says, that chinese Emperor Yu has discovered (during giant floods) magical turtle, which had on it's carapace shape of some square with numbers 1-9 sized 3x3. Sum of these numbers in various linear spaces give number 15.
Except of this legend, there were discovered many artefacts from stone and metal with square shape, during archeology works in China and Egypt, which was used as amulets. In the history, existing with humans beside squares also numers themself, which have except of common regular use from our commercial world also meaning of esoteric, numerologic and astrological and showed imaginary key to gate between space and Earth.
Old China people were sure, that square is able to ensure them luck and prosperity. For that it was used as strong amulet, but it was built-in also to i.e. basements of houses instead of ground stone etc... Square's advantages were trusted by people all around the world, so we can meet them also in India and Persia, from where they had spread to Europe.
Shape of square we can findon the beret, which is part of tallars, used in most of evangelic churchs and/or as ceremony robe for university graduate, or as the cloth of judges, state representants and attorneys. It should give connection with space on the higher spiritual level to their wearers. What is exactly "Magical Square" and how to interpret it? It is square table with numbers, which are displaced in regular rows and columns so, that every sum of row, column, but also both diagonals the same.
We can see novadays in London library GUIDHALL LIBRARY paint called Melancholie I., which is engraved to copper plate and is dated from year 1541. It was created by important renaisance painter, engraver, grahpic, mathematic and theoretic Albrecht Duerrer (1471-1528), who came from Nuernberg. This engravement contains square 4x4 and numbers in it conained are showing date of death of his mother and year of finishing the engravement (1415).
Up to modern age is his work making whole word surprise. If we assume, that square itself is strongly energized (pyramides have from the space look also square base) and realy radiates the energy, which connect us with space and through systematic displacement of numbers can amplify this energy. We can declare, that we have found what is important, what we need for life. We can then use it's non-exhaustive positive energy. But how to confirm, how to discover, that energy of square is realy that magic and strong?
