    "In the unbalanced divide of their number is their shape defined"

    hi, i'm new here and don't have the book yet but this sounds to me like a
    possible way to reformat the pigpen text. for example if there were 221 words in the first block then as this only divides by 17 and 13 you could rearrange the words into a 17 by 13 shape (or 13 * 17) and then read instructions down a column. the same could apply to the letter count.

    more generally do people think this puzzle can be solved purely logically without research? it seems to me the research may be in danger of just going round in circles endlessly. i was invovlved in mysterious stranger where the book research route turned out not to exist. (also i'm useless at history and would be glad it if didn't play too big a part)

    goodluck

    Actually, according to the website the puzzle can be solved "with logic, allegoric translation, OR simple study." The "or" implies you can solve it one way without the other two. Personally I don't think you can solve this thing by any of those methods, or by any method at all

    I don't want you all to think I am a lurker, it's just that I wonder if I can add any value.

    Anyway, here is my 2 cents:

    Three Peaks - this has got to be the Pyramids at Giza

    I think it's safe to say that England is at the heart of this.

    BTW, while I am typing this there is a programme on TV about Stonehenge. So what, you might say, well it's in England and is the oldest monument there (Pyramids are old - same era?)

    Does a line from Royston to Avalon pass through Stonehenge?

    Speaking of TV programmes (are you in the UK?), I saw on the Maranatha web site that the BBC was doing some kind of documentary that involves the Maranatha puzzle. Have you seen this?

    here's something - not sure what, but an unlikely pattern.

    if you use a geocentric planet ordering. earth=0,...sun=4...etc and list the occurence of the planets in the first 4 images you get.

    page07 = 01 33567 89
    page08 = 01 23456 89
    page09 = 01 23455 89
    page10 = 01 34567 89

    so sun, mercury,neptune,uranus in each. others spread.
    an unbalanced divide???

    i'm trying to find out why the planets are in the positions they are. if you cut out the 4 images, put them in a square

    7 8
    9 10

    and trace the 4 common planets earth,moon,neptune,uranus as quadrilaterals, 3 of them intersect at a single point twice. this seems unlikely too. on the images these are roughly the dragons right wing tip and the king of terrors helmet.

    no idea what to do with this & my construction is crude. can anyone else confirm these intersections?
