    Default Easter

    I was recently thinking about "I am the final six", and the idea of looking into the Oracle's crystal ball and seeing your reflection, and came up with "MYSELF". This converts to a 10-digit number from letter positions:

    13 25 19 5 12 6

    If you mirror it, you get:

    62159 15231

    ...and I then found: TL6215915231 at the edge of a field in in High Easter. Wrong answer though.

    I like High Easter or nearby Good Easter for various reasons; the book goes on about it, and there have been two "Today is of the essence" clues on Good Friday. It's a time, so if the token is hidden in Easter, it's "lost in time". It's also directly due north of what I think must be Pete's address, given in the book as 11 Wrotham Road, Gravesend. (One possible interpretation of the longitude of this address is 22 minutes 5 seconds. 225th day of the year, August 13, is a feast day and the start of the Mayan calendar.)

    I like the 10 digit code idea because of references like "zzzzz zzzzz" and "x xxx xxxxx x" in the PDF. But I feel the only way to establish all 10 digits with complete certainty is if they translate to a simple word or phrase, with through letter positions or some other method like ASCII.

    Other possible thoughts include things like "...towns under Gravity..."; towns under G...? (Gravesend, Good Easter). Slipping into confirmation bias territory here though.

    If this helps anyone solve it, I'll give you the coordinates to send me a case of beer.

    Just a bit more detail on this...the PDF includes "First published 2004 by Wildmark Ltd., 11 Wrotham Road, Gravesend".

    Looks like this was the author's previous company address; the new one is given as 43 Grove Park Road.

    11 Wrotham Road is now occupied by King & Taylor; you can see it here.

    The Gravesend location reminds me of the pic of the pyramids/tombs with the line "Where does it all end", and Einstein's morbid ramblings about the grim reaper.

    The books ends with:

    ISBN No. x xxx xxxxx x
    Bar code 0 12 12345 9

    One of the website clues is:

    'Navigation, navigation, navigation - to find the token, the code must be broken'

    While the ISBN No has the required 10 digits for an OS grid reference, the "bar code" only has 9. Matching them up by the gaps, the "missing" one is in the second section.

    The book's actual ISBN is apparently: 0954942302. I'm not sure whether an author is free to choose it, or whether it appears in the hardback version.

    *****************************

    With its themes of spacetime being one thing, and being lost in time/space, I'm wondering if you have to, eg, find a location and then add two minutes, or something like that. ("...if I increase the power by five they should be back in two minutes..." etc.)
