    Default Correct ORDER of spells

    Look at pg 110 for what I believe is the correct order of solving the BOS.

    -Paragraph 6 = "As Ana watched, he grabbed the book and turned to one of the spells for creating a ring."

    -Paragraph 7 = "Then he recited the spell to summon the ring."


    1st Create spell.....2nd Summon spell. All along we have believed that since the Summon spell came first in the book, we were supposed to tackle that one first. This may be alllll wrong.

    ***Also...look at how paragraph 6 is worded: "as ana watched, he grabbed the book and turned to ONE of the spells for creating a ring." pgs 17-19 arent one long set of Dums together....they are Several spells. Figuring out how to break them up is the task at hand.
    ------------------------------------------

    So, now we know that we have to find ONE of the Create spells first...then cast the Summon spell. Viola, if we are as lucky as Zac, we will find the Fairy Ring of Eternal Life in our hands.

    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........

    Fox,
    It makes sense that you must first CREATE the ring before you can SUMMON one.

    But we are not required to 'create' a ring AB has done that for us all we need do is summon one...

    i am confused cause it says he grabbed the book, and turned to one of the spells, in the next image page 112 the book shows dark spells on ana's side and light spells on the zacs side. why two differnt covers on the same book?

    Maybe a clue to read Dark and Light together. Maybe to combine?
    Doesn't the story say Ana and Yorah had to "read" the spell together?

    Ana and Yorah had to read together because there were two spells to be cast and the last word for each had to be said at the same moment "at the moment full". Dar cast two spells, but he cast only one for each eclipse. There was only one eclipse left and Ana and Yorah could cast only one each - hence they each read a spell at the same time.
    Dar was also reading a third spell at the this same time because he also needed to say the last word "at the moment full".

    Wasn't this the way to 'combine' the short set of symbols
    (on page 6 I think)

    take a line of code and combine it with the flipping of another
    line of code (dark with light)....

    that makes sense, cause page 20 in book (image of dar and cave)has things from the pages of the tool page on it and other things like zacs boot. so maybe mixing the both instead of seperating.

    that would also go with my theory of mucha art , 4 stars and 4 seasons , cause of the hand and arm placment but there can be a mixture of both on the pages going on.

    in thinking about this line of thinking some more...

    arn't the instructions provided on how to read the book
    of spells exact described above:

    "swirled and coalensced"

    we have two examples that we now see...

    Page six of the BOS... one line of symbols (either dark or light)
    swirled and combined with a paired line of symbols (the opposite
    dark or light) forming a new line of combined code.
    (if you think about it - its a coded eclipse)

    The second example is the ambigrams....

    as easily as a children's book"

    Exactly! That was what I was trying to say.
