    Still here.

    I am unable to connect this to anything I remember seeing while working on the puzzle. Except, I do recall Duncan's explanation related to The Shepherds of Arcadia, which seemed to include aspects of the links that you posted.

    The Key, Geometry, and Duncan

    A geometric shape of a Hexagram on tilt was later given as a representation of the Puzzle Key by Duncan Burden, but the Key’s complete significance eludes, and it’s use towards the ultimate discovery of the Holy Grail remains to be achieved

    "One of the largest problems I realize I face, in this discussion, is counter-evidence of a solution to the Maranatha puzzle NOT involving (explicit) Geometry. Because I believe I understand the solution to the puzzle, but am not going to present it, I surrender that I offer no counter solution. I will say, that I believe the solution I have, is as truly intended in the essence of the puzzle, many of the steps synchronized with the monthly clues and completed at the 5 month mark (as originally foretold) and mostly without conventional means of communication with Duncan."

    "In reviewing these quotes, to me, it seems apparent that they are not pointing to a Geometric shape as the Key."


    A,

    My point, was simply to suggest a way of reconciling the idea that the Key is geometric in nature and the idea that it is NOT geometric in nature. It suggests a way how a geometric shape MIGHT be used as a key.

    I would be interested to hear your understanding of the solution to the puzzle.

    .
    Contentment is much closer to the Key, as compared to a shape (such as a Hexagram) found in Geometry. The "Et in Arcadia Ego" puzzle explicitly points in this direction.

    In my understanding, the world is full of discontent; often it is hidden for social or other reasons, but its effects are horrific. For an individual to break away from the discontent tendency (or, norm) requires much work. Of course, depending on the individual's background, the amount of work to reach the Contentment state can vary tremendously.

    A,

    I understand contentment .

    As regards the geometric shape aspect, this can also be used to bring you to an understanding of the Key, in a quite amazing way. It is easier however to discover the connection between the geometric shape and the key by reverse-engineering back from the Key to the geometric shape, rather than using the geometric shape to find the key.

    Thanks, M. I need to ponder what you suggest for a while. Hoping all is well with you.
