    Default Computational clues?

    Hi, i´m new in TAGT and was reading the TWELEVE forum related to TAGT.

    I´ve a question... visual and verbal clues... ok but Where is computational clues?

    They have read the Jeff Raskin history?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jef_Raskin#See_also

    if Raskin was the author i think the hunt must be declared "abandoned" or not?

    Notice that Jef Raskin was work for Apple (in Macintosh project)... may it be the ´computational clue´?

    (sorry abut my english)

    I think the computational clue would be doing something with "48" (continental US). "first (tree) in the third row", moved to "first tree in second row"

    All 48 states are listed around the left/west, up/north, right/east, and down/south borders (4) on each page. Anyone have an idea how they were grouped in the way that they are? If we were to discard the "two dimist" on each page we would have a total of 24. (Darn so close to a 5x5 grid, LOL)

    Jay,

    The dimmest has had me puzzled for a while. If you work on the state map, you start to get into the constellations. This is turn calls to mind stars. I think the dimmest refers to the stars. Generate a list of stars, find the center, get rid of dim stars, until you end up with one...

    Hey Steve, about the above I was kidding. You seem to have a different theory going. I have read a few different ideas people are having about this verse. My thought is "A car has two headlights, discard the two dimist" 2-2=0 in other words you don't have any left. Go w/o headlights, (w/o car, walk)
