    Default even code 1 nary

    Say...I just noticed that when messing around with zip codes that all my really strong contenders have four even digits and one odd. Hmmmmmm

    You don't have to tell us what your zip codes are but can you tell us how you came up with them? How are they related to the above quote?
    If you can't be a good example, be a terrible warning.

    Default zip codes

    Nothing scientific here. I have lived from one end of this country to the other over the years. As I read the text or look at the illustrations something will click. Just a gut hunch. So I look up the zip codes for the general area I am thinking about. Then I go back to the text and/or illustrations to see if I can spot something else that will tie into my thoughts. So far it's working. I may have 6 or 7 zip codes for the area I'm thinking about. It is when I pick a code with four even numbers and one odd number that I start to zero on to something worth looking into.

    Ergo, an even code with one piece not even. It is just a gut hunch.

    Default even code naturally nary one

    i have found a even code with one piece nary and would like to ask for thoughts on how to use it. i have had several responces like--- your one piece nary is instructions ---however we do have instructions. (with our poem found by all) i have boxed it 4 different ways i have tried to cipher text with it and the like but these things are not simple enough. or i am using the wrong box???? now theres a thought how many different boxes have you come up with while puzzling??? please note anything you think i will not judge for i am open to all thoughts .my code is 25 different letters of the alphabet if anyone has found this please pm me with the first 4 letters and i will know you have what i have.
    anyway i took this code i found and used it to find 12 more codes a total of 13 seems to fit the theme of the book.
    now you can shoot me out of the room or you can think about what i have to offer and lend a hand with your thoughts on usage. thank you for the time you have given to read my post.
    this code i have found was very simple and i cannot deny that it is correct i have tried tons of things and am getting fustrated there has to be a simple solution on use or it will not work so my question is what is the simplest thing i can do with it to make it useful.
    following the instructions i have ---i believe it is the first thing i need to find a token please help if you can thanks again i will post my thoughts on this code and the actual codes i have found after i research it just a little further so please be patient with me

    Default 5x5

    hey all... like many, i am working on the 5x5 puzzle. i am in agreement with the notion of 25 letters (all but q) and am taken with the matching grids in chapter 1 (Z) and beginning the dream sequence... i am experimenting with the notion that the black squares of that second grid show us the # of letters and placement within the grid...

    so as i try to figure out what goes in those black squares i consult the poem and read that the key is within the text, and the secret is "not whole" -- so what is referenced more than knotholes? perhaps these references are telling us more than the tokens will be found in the knotholes of trees. and if we remove the duplicate letters we get knothles... a convenient 8 letters to fill the squares!

    but i'm certainly not getting anywhere filling in the rest of the letters and forming some "even code" ... of course, maybe i'm not translating the right things. i'm really taken with the sentences that MS places under the pictures, and the fact that 'group' is in quotes and emphasized in the ladybug chapter...

    so has anyone else been down this path with "knotholes" already? am i wasting time?

    You're knot alone I'm trying to find patterns in the sentences where MS uses the word "knothole" in the story. I started by attempting to apply the series of numbers in the front of the book (the save our trees numbers) to the text directly after the word "knothole" whenever it appears in the story. The word comes up a lot. If you write down the first 15 letters (as you would using the code in the front of the book) you can almost always find the word "hint" when you angram the letters. I only found one instance where this was not (or knot if you prefer) the case. It's prolly nothing.

    Cheers!
