at the magic squares of the basic numbers from 1 to 10 we notice first
that 1:1 doesn't make a magic square as such because of the character
of the number ONE. It represents more a static point, showing as yet no
movement at all. It is the first step of creation or manifestation. Furthermore
we see that it is impossible to construct a magic square within the space
2:2. TWO however, is the first number indicating polarity and therewith
making dynamic movement possible. That leaves us with the numbers 3 to
10 to analyse the principles of movement and interaction given by the
Why are they called "magic" squares? The fact that all the sums horizontally, vertically and diagonally are the same within each square is not what makes them magic but just a visible manifestation of an underlying living or "magic" principle.

The first obvious pattern we can observe by looking at all the graphs of
these squares is the reflection of the duality which underlies every physical
manifestation on our earth plane. The difference in structure, form and
vibration between the basic patterns of the even numbered squares and those
of the uneven numbers. Like the breathing and pulsating of life these two
groups of patterns spiral litterally in the two opposite directions. The
even numbered moving from the outside (beginning with ONE at the right upper
corner of each square) to the centre and back to the outer edge, the highest
number at the bottom corner on the left. The uneven numbered squares, however,
starting the movement at the centre moving to the borders and coming back
to the centre again.
Leaving aside the graphs now and taking a closer look at the numerical structures of these squares, which are composed in such a miraculous but somehow logical way, we can observe a combining element within these two polar opposite groups by looking at the sums of the different squares (horizontal?vertical?diagonal) in the linear ascension. ( 3:3, 4:4, 5:5, 6:6……,) As if they were to prove that their opposite character is still part of one great plan their sums increase in an absolute constant manner as can be seen in the listing.
Going further into detail we take a closer look at the groups separately
from each other. Like every living form springs from a seed, egg or cell
each of these groups too have an originating CORE containing the basic pattern.
For the even numbered squares this core is the square 4:4; for the uneven
numbers it is naturally the square 3:3 (The square of Mercury). Not the
numerical values but the basic pattern of movement of these cores are representative
for all the bigger sized squares of each group.
