# Rod Measure Unlocks a Lost Civilization in TIme

Rod Measure Unlocks a Lost Civilization in Time. Rod is an old English measure of distance equal to 16.5 feet. It was also called a perch or pole. The word rod derives from Old English rodd and is akin to Old Norse rudda (“club”). Etymologically rod is also akin to the Dutch rood.  Rood referred to a land area of 40 square rods. A rood equals to one-quarter acre. It also denoted just one square rod, or 272.25 square feet.  The rood also was a British linear unit, containing 660 feet.

### Rod Measure Unlocks Incredible Mathematical Secrets

One reason I enjoy posting is that I can discover more about antiquity as I write. The rod’s background is extremely exciting. First, let’s consider one square rod of 272.25 square feet:

• One square rod = 272.25 square feet. Number ruled supreme in antiquity. Both Pythagoras and Plato elaborated on this topic. The ubiquitous measure was the megalithic yard. The square rod invokes the 272 part. One megalithic yard equals 2.72 feet. Professor Alexander Thom of Oxford University proved its once ubiquitous existence.
• Measures come from numbers on the 3 x 3 number square. It gets the ball rolling. The perimeter of numbers around five totals 40. That number applies to  the Dutch  land area of 40 square rods. Grain of mustard seed for antiquity is the smallest number square.
• Brittan measures their 660 foot rood by the same number square:   Here is a way to find 660. Add add double opposite by number pairs  horizontally as (49 + 61)  + (75 + 35) + (81 + 29) = 330.
• Next add all such combinations vertically: (43 + 67) + (15 + 95) + (83)+ (27) = 330.
• Horizontal plus vertical pairs total 660.

Why the 2521 Total of the Five Books of Genesis?

Plato’s Ideal City have 2520 pairs of rings. These were a pair of closer and further rings for each citizen. The Torah, a.k.a. Five Books of Moses, added one to 2520 for the presence of the Deity to this number.

### What’s so Special About Number Squares?

They balance. The prime number square balances to infinity once you learn how to read it. Anything that  is built to last must balance. Therefore, the 3 x 3 can sustain a new era of peace and plenty.
