    I still wonder about/question what Duncan knows.

    H,
    No, I don't think D said that he'd given the solution. If you read what D said at the time (and this I think was pointed out then), what D gave was what was expected to win the puzzle's prize. It was not the solution per se. That - ie the solution - was what I thought D said he was going to give after PPubs went bust. He said he hoped to write another document explaining the LRB - but that document never materialised. He went onto write other articles on other sites and to host his Masonic ideas - but whether any of those articles/ideas contained the solution in whole or in part who knows.

    JL - Where/when did he say this? I don't ever recall seeing this statement.

    H - Agile mind ? People who know me, prefer another term - bat s*^ t crazy! Mine was a lot more convoluted than yours !

    Take a look at the final part of the series of PDF's published here (page 5) that were from D (I think the page here was taken down - or at least I couldn't access it a few years back) and the Maranatha Is Over thread.
    D was basically saying that 'the key' was an asset of the company and he couldn't provide the key here while the business was in administration as it belonged to the company and not to him per se.

    I have the original PDFs (the ones that where he explained what was required to win the prize) that D sent to me to check for errors (grammar/spelling type things) - that set of 5 PDFs has this on the final page:
    Quote Originally Posted by PDFs From D - Page 5

    Key to the Reader, and this will be confirmed in a full PDF release after liquidation is
    complete as it is yet to be confirmed as an asset to the company.
    So - the PDFs revealed what was needed to claim the prize. AND D implied that in getting the prize winning solution, the reader would also discover the key - BUT the prize submittal and the key were separate things. D was then to confirm the key aspect after the wind up of PPubs. That never happened AFAIK - unless he posted it on some other web site.

    Thanks JL.

    DB wrote the article outlining his version of the Key, which was posted on Andrew Gough's site. That article did not amount to " explaining the LRB" however. Neither did the 5 pdfs.

    I had a quick look at the final page of the 5pdf, and saw that according to DB, Proverbs3:18 ends with the word "Contentment". In none of the Biblical versions that I have seen of this verse does the word "Contentment" appear.

    https://biblehub.com/proverbs/3-18.htm

    He says that the passage also is used in the masonic ritual of the Royal Arch.

    https://www.stichtingargus.nl/vrijme.../ovokg_re.html

    Joshua reads Proverbs, chap. II , v. 1-9, and chap. III, v. 13-20.:...

    She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

    I have looked at the wording used in the Royal Arch Ritual for Proverbs 3:18 and the word "Contentment" does not appear there either. At least not in the version I looked at in the above link.

    Do you know of a version of Proverbs 3:18 that uses the word "Contentment"?

    I saw the Andrew Gough post - and I wasn't sure that was the 'answer' that D had intimated. The 'there's a pattern in the painting' is very old - I posted a link to a site about Vermeer that pre dated the LRB and that had a similar construct. This site is the 'archived' version - Vermeer's Riddle Revealed - Priory of Sion paintings analyzed for the Grail Geometry..

    As for contentment - no, I am not sure if it exists anywhere in any given version of the Bible. To be honest, D's PDFs left me more than slightly cold. It all seemed a bit convoluted to me and I couldn't see how any one would have actually achieved the desired submission even if the puzzle had been going 100 years. So I never really followed up on what he said in those pages. Then the AG/Arcadia post, followed by D's masonic site, made me doubt whether there was anything behind the LRB at all.
    Anyway - Biblegateway (https://www.biblegateway.com/) has umpteen versions (if that site is still up) of the bible that are searchable, and at one time The Web of Hiram at Bradford Uni (https://www.brad.ac.uk/webofhiram/) had searchable online masonic texts.
    Good luck with your continued search!

    Forrest said that contentment is key; then said that only a few are in tight focos with a word that is key.

    And i dont think the pdf has anything to do with the Maranatha solution.

    That's interesting.


    Poor ol' dumb Horace, progressively more silly and lazy as time passes, increasingly believes that the phrase "Contentment is the Philosopher's Stone" should be taken literally.

    If you look at this:


    https://biblehub.com/proverbs/3-18.htm


    The word in ending is "blessed" instead of "contentment".

    Horace,

    I see it the same way. The question is, is this a generalized (understanding of ) Conetentment, so basic that it is overlooked and undervalued. How would this fit in with “With each generation, an initiate reforges the Key”? Is there something more specific? I believe the puzzle addresses these types of questions.

    My oversight, in referring to Forrest without background. Forrest wrote a 24 line poem which supposedly leads to a treasure chest full of (about) a million dollars in treasure, hidden in the Rocky Mountains. Another treasure puzzle.

    Forrest has had quite a bit of interaction with the treasure hunting community. I quoted him because he also sees the possibility for the work of the invisible hand (to be continued)
