    Default Sun on back cover

    I don't know if I can be much help to anyone with this, or if anyone actually cares anymore, but I don't recall reading any posts about this before. The sun on the back (DARK SPELLS DARK) cover has a "bright spot" on the bottom right, and the sun also has the same shape as one that I saw on an astrological website. On the astrological site, this spot was pointing to Leo. Incidentally, the planet sign for a Leo is the Sun.
    One more thing which I haven't heard anyone talk about yet is the number 2 or 5 which appears directly above this bright spot (had to use a magnifying glass to see it).
    One more thing...Don't give up on this treasure hunt until Mike Stadther actually says it's over!

    i havent noticed the red dot, ill have to take a look when i have the book in front of me. if it is real, it might be a clue on how to set up a wheel astrologically.

    and i agree, we shouldnt quit until we get a public announcement that it is officially over, most of what we have heard have been unconfirmed rumors and gossip. but i've heard some other things that make me think twice about continuing this hunt.

    Much like many of the Mucha images, the image of the mirror on the back of the book was actually swiped from the web. The exact image (minus the photoshopping of the interior of the mirror) can be found on numerous web sites including this one...

    http://www.fiestadiscounts.com/images/31397lg.jpg

    So, as much as we can eliminate most of the Mucha artwork as containing a code (unless MS traveled back in time to convince Alphonse to put codes in his borders) we can eliminate the mirror as containing any sort of deep hidden meaning. The sun as a symbol may mean something. But I wouldn't look too closely at the specific image of the sun since it's just a swipe.

    The tie with the constellation Leo may mean something though. Just posted under constellations & was wondering if they are significant. Will let you know if I find anything to indicate they are actually a puzzle.

    Hi Kibitz,

    Thank you for finding the mirrored image. I work in Photoshop. The mirror area of the sun can easily be filled with an image which Mike may have wanted us to see. When you look at the back cover and you are reading Light Spells Light, you may see an image in the "mirrored" area. I see a mouse image. It's body is towards the top with it's spine following the curvature of the mirror interior. One of the squiggly lines flowing down is the tail. It's head is in the three o'clock position.

    Is this simply a mouse image to remind us this is a web based hunt?? And all this time I thought it was sunflower seed patterns or the surface of a diatom... Things are not always as they seem. Good to have another look at it, though.

    Your twelever friend,
    Beth

    Hey Beth,

    I find it pretty funny that this thread started two months ago with a lion observation (Leo) and ended with visions of a mouse. It brings to mind one of Aesop's fables, The Lion and the Mouse.

    http://www.longlongtimeago.com/llta_...lionmouse.html

    The basic moral of this fable is that even the weak or small might be able to assist the mighty in significant ways.

    I'd say it fits with some of the themes in our book.

    I'll have to try to find that mouse tomorrow in the sunlight.

    The sun will come out tomorrroooowwww. <--(Hey, it's Annie singing Annie)
