    Just FYI since you're working on this clue, that same number is at the bottom of page 30 also. Unfortunately, I don't know what the connection is yet, but perhaps something may stand out to you. Good luck,

    Thanks for that Engineer and Spiggan!

    If you look up the whole number above, you may get a UPS track number, but I didn't want to pursue this further 'cuz I'd have to pay for more info. So, I tried just the area code, 747 which picked up the San Fernando Valley. I use to live near this area in So. California.

    Interestingly, Fernando was sung by ABBA in 1975. Thing is, I wouldn't have suspected Domino to travel all the way to California, even though Sonoma was a gold rush location and Austin Park is nearby.

    I'm still looking eastward for Domino's trek and having immense fun with musicians and historical things. Domino has done a cool thing for us.

    Still troving,

    Yes, very interesting, FoxyKeys!

    I had read the previous pages in this thread, but I completely forgot that people had mentioned this was a San Fernando Valley area phone number. (My memory is short!) I still don't know if it's really supposed to be a phone number or something else. I wish I could figure out what the numbers mean.

    Or maybe the actual numbers don't mean anything at all and maybe it's these deliberately different font sizes that are important? Three different font sizes, 24, 30, and 36. (I had thought the #1 on the right was a size 48 but that doesn't really exactly fit because Domino changed that character a bit...if you compare it to the original font #1, it's distorted somehow.) Could he be telling us to use this pencil (page 1) with pages 24, 30, and 36?

    I measured the pencil (12 centimeters long--referring to page 12 maybe?) and I have been trying to compare it with some things I see on pages 24, 30, and 36. (I'm just supposing page 35 is supposed to be reflected onto page 36--"He reflected".) I'm seeing a few obvious things that can't be coincindence. Not sure what any of them mean, and I'm sure not anywhere close to putting any of them together. But there are some things these pages have in common (besides the repeated phone number on page 30.) For instance, doesn't it look to you as if the scroll poem on page 30 is supposed to be scrolled onto a pencil? So I'm trying to find a #2 pencil somewhere here. I guess all #2 pencils have a uniform width? Not that it will help anything at all, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to xerox the poem and cut it out. The cowboy does say he "unfolds" the thing!

    Any other thoughts?

    I would compare these two, too...but dont forget that there is more in each place then just these11 numbers.

    Happy New Year!

    Spiggan,

    I like your idea about rolling the scroll around a pencil! They used to do that with scytales. I will try it!

    Has anyone mentioned the sun/moon symbols underneath the word-search? The sun symbol is a circle with a dot in the middle. The sun and crescent moon are hidden under the scribble lines. I was trying to duplicate the scribbles, by going around and around the sun/moon symbols with a pencil on my notebook, and it occurred to me they may indicate revolutions...rotations...cycles. I think Domino has said somewhere that it is not necessary to physically turn or rotate the word-search box. But maybe we have to do revolutions or rotations in a cipher string to arrive at the correct letters to substitute for the ones in the box?

    Or could it mean the a.m./p.m. hours, as on a clock? Time seems to be important, with the reference to midnight in Section 12, and other references to midnight elsewhere. I seem to detect some emphasis on numbers 6 and/or 12 in general, though it might just be my imagination. There is the number 1 close to the number 2 (bottom page number), and the number 12 above that, with the bold number 6 on the right. And the pencil is 12 centimeters long, wth the number 24 on it. If you measure the word-search (with the brands around it) it's also 12 centimeters. Don't know what it all means.

    Hi Spiggan!

    I wondered about the moon and crescent, too. But I think it may have more to do with DAR. Perhaps Domino is asking us to focus on the same thing Stadtner was suggesting. The three Eclipse pages, Grow/Mold, Light Fairies Open/Close, Life/Death could be put on top of one another. Each piece was a layer.

    I think it's another layer sign from Domino. We need to know what clues match what on different pages... like layering. I'm trying not to over-think it. Still busy with the mazes, letters, numbers and searches and am overwhelmed as I am an intuitive hunter... and find math and puzzles challenging at times.

    Happy troving.

    I have a sneaky feeling that time is important, and maybe there is a clock somewhere...

    Hi Genetic Blend!

    I hadn't thought of time as in a clock. But I have thought time was significant in terms of history. I've been researching old west cowboy, Native Americans, railroad and military history. Just having fun here and not sure where I'm going.

    Anyway, the only thing in terms of 'time' I could come up with was in reference to the roman numerals on page 11 which express 1831 - 1896. This date can be someone's life span, The Truck Act, or the Trail of Tears. No where do I see a time face... at least so far. I am enjoying your posts and ideas. Thanks.

    Happy Troving.

    Domino's just recently hinted about how to format this word-search (unless I am really misreading it) and last night I was trying to figure something out. The tweet directed us to the website (unless I am really mistaken) and now there is something new and strange coming up now on the website. He mentioned on "the Cowboy" thread a little while ago, "Perspective is crucial, not key". I think I might see what he's getting at. Do you see the same thing?

    FoxyKeys, I also prefer history to math anyday!
