## P. 2 - Pointing Fairy 6 5 14 4 13 ... and SAVE OUR TREES ART

On the bottom of page 2 is a fairy pointing to a sting of numbers:

6 5 14 4 13 7 8 2 3 15 9 10 1 12 11

If you take 6 to be the 6th character in a sting and 14 to be the 14th character, and apply these numbers to the title of the book:

A TREASURES TROVE

A = 1, T = 2, R = 3, E = 4, A = 5, S = 6, etc. ...

The sting spells out:

SAVEOURTREESART ---> SAVE OUR TREES ART

Just thought I would add that if you add up all of the numbers you get 120 which is a multiple of 12 (tweleve). Not sure if it is significant or not but who knows...

Also, I'm not sure if there is more to it than just "Save our trees art". It seems as though everone stopped thinking about it after that. I think there could be more to it. I know when I first got my copy of the book that was the very first thing I noticed. I just wonder if there could be more to it - For example there are numbers from one to 15 and we all know about the five to a side clue. But is there any where that it says there has to be 4 sides? Could it be a triange with 3 sides? 3 x 5 = 15?

Sorry if this is irrelevant, but I just thought I would throw it out there.

4. Wow, osian.

That's exactly what I've been thinking.

Equilateral triangle, 15 nodes.

Confirmer in ruler picture showing 6 at apex.

Confirmer also because it's a number code, five to a side.

Need 15-characetr strings to pour into the matrix. Then maybe Doc's sequencing mechs come into play.

5. Great thinking...

question, search, *think*!!

Out of the box, guys, think out of the box!!!

MS is active in environmental isues... how about "Save Our Trees -Art" meaning:

Save = preserve or Except (used before a word often taken to be the subject of a clause (i.e. "no one knows about it save she.")

Our Trees

Art = not the name "Art" but a tree's art = leaves!

So either "preserve our tree's leaves" or "Except our trees leaves"

Just a thought...

7. ## Save our trees art? no more anagrams please!!!

The authors name also contains 15 letters. Using this as a key (instead of ATT) and then anagramming the results results in the following which is one of few intelligent and/or relevant phrases obtained .

A charmed thistle

just call this "posting practice"...

I actually broke away from the computer and book today and drove around town. On almost every single corner I came to I saw these red octagonal signs that commanded me to "POST".

I know what you mean about those "POST" signs!!

I live in a woods, and I look out my windows and see bare tree branches, and LETTERS in EVERY ONE of 'em!!!!!

You'll have to go post an introduction in "The Blunt Chisel".

How about Save Our Tree Rats

10. Sorry if this is a repeat post of something already discussed, but I haven't had time to cull thru every post so far (butI'm working on it!).

When I first opened the book, one of the first things I noticed was the 6 5 14 4 13 etc sequence with the fairy pointing at it. I also noticed that it contained every number from 1 to 15. Before even starting to read the story, I ran through the permutations of first letter of each chapter, last letter, 6th letter of the 6th chapter, first letter of the 6th word of the 6th chapter, etc, etc, etc. All to no avail, So I just read the book. Then, while reading the book, I started seeing the "hidden messages" in the borders (sometimes with the help of my daughter). We arranged the messages from the chapters in the order of 6 5 14 4 13 etc and it appears to make a poem that rhymes. We don't have nearly all the verses, and it appears that they get harder as you move along. (6 is easy, 5 a little harder, 14 more so, etc, etc, etc.) Has anybody else tried this aproach? Is this just rehashing what's already been discussed? OK, back into lurk mode. Gotta do my research.
