    I meant that different people had access to different parts of the solution, and we'd have to combine solutions. No one would have both texts in front of them.
    A funeral can be real fun if you mix it up a bit

    Good call Lobster. I'll rescind my offer, but I would still like to discuss this in more detail. Although the books do start and end on the same page and coded message is in the same place, the question I have is what are the similarites between the 2 different chapters as published? In other words, if we are to solve the chapter map on this one, what "mechanism" for finding the sequence can be found in both versions?

    Also, if Ron does decide to give us clues to this chapter as well, how can these clues be generic enough to work for both versions, and also be specific enough to allow us to "find" the solution in each version. This leads me to be believe that the solution may have to be somewhere in the text that is common to both. Perhaps the poem?

    There are 4 versions of Chapter 2.

    How does that change all your theories?

    How can you buy all 4 versions? Certainly looking At them all could give you the advantage

    You can't buy them, that's the point - you need to work with others to get the information. Interesting twist eh?

    And Lobster has an excellent point about not mass copying what you have and giving it to others....

    and P.S. - to those that have versions that are NOT being talked about here - you hold something rare, so be careful what you share otherwise you give up your bargaining power

    It's certainly strange, isn't it. It's interesting to note that one version has quite a few drug references. It's not out of the realm of possibility that Ron was forced by something or other to produce a copy without such references (for use in the US as opposed to Canada or something?), in which case this multiple-copy observation may be a content issue rather than an intended clue.

    But who knows. Perhaps it is important. And if there are 4, well that deepens the mystery further doesn't it?

    I haven't even sat down to analyze the copies I have obtained over the past 2 years (actual books) and probably won't for a couple of weeks. I need a bit of a break after C1

    Is this the authors intention?

    Is it only for chapter 2? Or are all chapters different?

    To answer the last two questions - seems up to us to figure that out....
