    Default Tree Initials

    Commenting on the inital carvings on the last two
    images: first image has "MS 05"
    second image has "MGS"

    also the illustrators initals are on both
    without difference.

    Slight correction on this. It is actually BGK and MJS for initials not MGS on p. 112 and MS 06 on p. 108 instead of MS 05. Just pointing that out, not trying to be critical or anything.

    I was paging through the book just looking at the pictures and it jumped out at me too that they signed with 3 initials on p. 112 and so I went back to check all of the pictures to confirm that this was the only place it occurred. Then I was going to start a p. 112 thread when I saw this one.

    It is different for sure but I'm not sure what it means, if anything, but it might be.

    Oops, forgot the word "important" at the end of my last sentence.

    Default Caterpillers legs

    The catepillar is only showing 3 legs in this page too, although it might not mean anything since only 3 are shown on the inside front cover, p. 31, p. 61, and p. 94 in the arch border not holding the web. But maybe it means pay attention to threes or something on this page. A theme number?

    Thanks for the correction.

    I tend to post without the book
    in front of me.

    I found it odd - not that they would
    put initials on trees, but that there
    would be a variation.

    I beleive that MS had different signatures in ATT.
    I think it's just that these illustrations took a couple years, they just signed them randomly, or forgot what they put down before.

    I don't think it's a clue.

    Most are signed with the '05' year.

    Whether they are a clue or not, I kinda
    disagree with your conjectures.

    Have you ever forgotten your own initials? Ever?

    I also disagree, you're an idiot.

    Default Tree Initials

    Dear Energy--
    Welcome to the forum. As you will find if you explore any given 100 posts here, 40 of them will be well-meaning guesses about anomalies in the text or images of the book, and then people will try to offer counter-guesses. No one has found a ring yet, so no one knows exactly what is relevant or why Michael Stadther would put into the book the 4 million anomalies that have been found (especially since it seems that only a maximum of, say, 100 of these will actually lead to something). Since people are brainstorming out loud here, most ideas will either turn out to be useless or have at best shaky ground as a premise. There is no reason to call anyone an idiot; if you disagree with someone's post, just be thankful that your odds of winning a ring are not dependent upon their insights. You'll be a happier person on this forum, a forum filled with hundreds of people who have closer to no solutions than every solution.
