Engineer, Writer, Researcher (1915 – 2016)
Hippocrates Dakoglou was a civil engineer who gained worldwide recognition as one of the most erudite researchers of Pythagoras and his philosophy. He was the one who succeeded in deciphering the secret code of the Pythagoreans and whose research, spanning over 90 years, provided the modern world with the most knowledgable and insightful wisdom of Pythagoras’s teachings to date. His research elucidated a huge part of Pythagorean philosophy and unveiled groundbreaking and innovative aspects not only on the advanced science hidden within his teachings but subsequently of the entire ancient Greek spirit, knowledge that had not been seen since 2600 years of research. Today, Dakoglou is one of the most respected authorities on Pythagoras in the world.
He was born in Constantinople. Since he was a child he was intrigued by Pythagoras’ mysticism, which led him in collecting every written document he could find on Pythagoras and which would eventually prove decisive in his research. Dakoglou’s first major breakthrough was his book entitled The Secret Code of Pythagoras and the Decipherment of his Teachings first published in 1988 as the first tome of the series. In it, Dakoglou had discovered the method by which Pythagoras communicated his teachings to his disciples. He argued that the Pythagorean sayings had a numerical value conferred to by their words and that these values could be expressed by geometry. Dakoglou proved that Pythagoras could convert verbal messages into geometric shapes and in that manner words could reveal images. In turn, these geometric images unveiled the true meaning behind Pythagoras’ teachings. This method he termed “symbolic logic”, based on arithmolexy and the geometric symbols.
In his research, Dakoglou followed Pythagoras’ method of deciphering symbols and converting words into geometric shapes to reveal some of the most groundbreaking discoveries of Pythagoras. He described the existence of infinite planetary systems within the Universe, which itself consisted of 13 sub-universes, each comprising 12 planets and bound by the same laws of creation. Furthermore he discovered the mathematical laws for the distances of the orbits of the planetary systems as well as the mathematical laws for the distribution of mass and energy in the Universe. He proposed the existence of 3 additional planets in our solar system and gave an estimate of their distances and time of their procession. Dakoglou’s research went further to discover Pythagoras’ cosmogonic beliefs and his interpretation of the geometric and energetic Creation of the Universe. His work mentions the existence of “Black Slits”, the existence of new unknown planets and the existence of the aether, for which he compiled mathematical evidence. However, Dakoglou’s work was not limited exclusively to Greek interests. He proved mathematically that many of the traditional core symbols in different ancient philosophical systems, most notably the Hebrew Kabbalah or Tree of Life and the Chinese Yin-Yang, had Pythagorean wisdom within them and had been studied extensively by the philosopher. Moreover, he published cutting-edge research on pyramidology and on Empedoclean philosophy.
Undoubtedly Dakoglou’s greatest discovery was the grand plan of the Harmony of the Celestial Spheres, its geometric representation and its decipherment. He revealed that the plan of the Harmony of the Celestial Spheres represented the creation of the Universe as handed down by Pythagoras from the geometric solving of the Pythagorean Theorem and the Golden Ratio as modified and applied to the spheres. In 1987 in collaboration with the Iannis Xenakis Foundation, Dakoglou achieved in setting into music the melody of the Harmony of the Celestial Spheres, the sound made by the stars in the universe which Pythagoras could hear and had passed down to his teachings. Dakoglou used electronic devices to convert these mathematical models into music, which he recorded into cassettes and distributed to patients with psychiatric illnesses, a significantly large portion of whom reported satisfactory results.
Dakoglous’ unprecedented success stemmed from a number of factors. His research was completely original and came from no sources other than Pythagoras himself, whereas previous researchers relied on using secondary sources such as Pythagoras’ students. In addition, his conclusions were all mathematically proven and backed-up by geometric shapes. He was vindicated in 2003 when Sedna was discovered by Michael E. Brown, as he had proposed earlier the existence of 3 more planets in our solar system and was vindicated once more when NASA published the sound recorded from the stars. His work proved a catalyst in succeeding to unify the Greek alphabet with the esoteric meaning and metaphysical properties of numbers. Dakoglou’s accomplishment in re-discovering the laws Pythagoras had described which govern the entire solar system cannot be overstated. He helped massively pave the way in re-creating the lost system of Greek Meditation (Hellenikos Dialogismos) by setting its mathematical substrate, later expanded by philosopher Anastasios Asimakopoulos and researcher Altani Palaiogianni. He succeeded in elucidating the lost corpus Pythagoricum in what is known today in its most complete form.
Some will argue why Hippocrates Dakoglou was so immersed in what some people would regard as complete meaninglessness. He believed that the Universe is governed by numbers and numbers never lie. “The benefit of studying Pythagoras is big”, he said, “because it leads to truth, and truth transforms lives”.
