    I think I've seen enough to be able to say that yes, the chapters are theoretically solvable without FB clues. That is, enough pieces exist to show valid paths to the solutions based on only things in the book and website. I have no doubt that when the hunt finishes and the real solutions are posted, we will find tens, if not hundreds, of clues and hints described for each chapter.

    The existence of a solution is one thing. The ability for a real human being to actually sort through the layers of misdirection and interference from other chapters and find that intended solution without FB clues is another thing entirely. On this last question, the jury is still out.

    This most recent clue really confuses me. Using various interpretations, it seems to invalidate four different important aspects of this solution at the same time, and I'm not so sure that it really intends on doing that.

    The most recent clue is pretty much identical to the June 14 clue "The solution is in the book, use all of them unless you have used them before"

    Seems that the more clues we get , the more confusing it becomes. I thought it is supposed to work the other way around.

    I've found many of the clues helpful in various ways.

    However, there are 3 good candidate ciphers that I can think of for this chapter, and all 3 appear to be invalid based on different readings of the FB clues.

    I think I'll actively start working on Ch5 since Ch4 is coming to a close---- (yeah, right).

    I am still working in the clue from October 11th (PFWVXBMDGPWSCSPOIHDCMLIAOVZIMLIABDKPIJVLIHLZQSIBV JBRPFIAVVSZAVOSQCDLQAVOOPEZMJMOSHMWVALLY).

    If you were successful deciphering, I just would like to know if this clue is worth the effort and gives you new information, or if it is only a redundant clue.

    Regards,
