# Thread: The Bibonacci Code

1. I hate to say it, but I love that Star Trek connection...gotta be careful, it's hard to move past some ideas when I think they are correct...must always be prepared to be wrong.

Okay, here is a bit of audience analysis: I can see the book as aimed at a 12 yo age group, and its fitting that a good dozen or so over-achieving wiz kds would convince their parents or guardians to drive them to any of the relavant rest areas where the Numbers where buried, but now that stage is over and we have a mystery that has developed or matured into a man hunt...the adult components of the over achieving wiz kid group have now been enticed and no doubt recognize clues that are aimed or gauged at them...which translates into references from a time when they themselves were 12 years old. Lets do the age estimations: a parent of a 12 yo in 2010 (born in 199 might be statistically in the age range of 26 to 30 in 1998, they would then be born around 1970 to 1974, making their own 12 yo age range between 1982 and 1986. I propose that many clues found between 82 and 86 will produce the coordinates to Roy Dodge.

2. I wonder if it was Dodge's motive to intentionally choose his location so that Gus might be the only person to figure it out; privately Dodge desires Gus' friendship and would welcome it if both keen enough and willing to follow.

Marshmallows. "Gus, don't eat just the Marshmallows."

3. 8th Floor Rebus: Connect-Four + Eye + Scissors = Connect-I-Cut = Connecticut

Multi-Floor Rebus (close to the same position on each floor): 9th Floor "Hello D" + 11th Floor "Elbows" + 8th Floor Broom Swing = Hallbowswing = Halloween?

4. Joryjohn tweets are often peculiar, but are often relateable in some way to TCWAF. Harry Stephen Keeler tweets too. These tweets are what I draw inspiration from...which is problematic, because tweets are a metaphoric slippery slope underwater and under an electric current (thats electrolytic reduction, btw).

5. Pupkin = Pumpkin, should be good enough to put things into a Halloween perspective. I wonder how far this goes. Popular Halloween costumes? Kids, Candy, "trick-or-treat", "guising", "bobbing for apples", ghosts, vampires? Maybe it's in Forks, Washington?

Sorry it's been so long, I've had to work too much all summer!

I Google searched his username and it brings up the movie Being There, which is about a middle-aged gardener named Chance who lives in Washington DC. I'm not sure if anyone else did what I did, so I thought I'd mention it!

8. I watched the film in hopes of understanding it's part in this, and all I can glean is a few possibilities: could be an association to do with other Peter Seller's works, or something about Matt Tweedy, but also something to do with coats, canes, umbrellas and walking on water...

My mind sort of went to the idea of the whole Washington thing right away lol

10. I've been working with a new idea involving the idea of 'dining in the dark'. Dodge is a detective of enhanced senses. If we negate one of our senses, then we might find there are clues that are more accessible in terms of a sense we don't commonly rely on. Take away sight and what can we determine from touch or smell? Retrace Gus' path through the Tower under different sense-conditions and you might come across clues differently.
