    Based on my submissions the week of April 25 to May 1, xxx6xxx is both a solution structure and placement clue, and "E = 5" is a placement clue as well. Crossing my fingers.

    Regards,

    I fully agree with your explanation. I had to use the math as well to find both parts.

    I'm glad there is someone else out there that did it the same way. I was starting to have doubts...

    Unless he's not talking about key placements at all...

    XXX6XXX
    Could be placement clue, but for the pathway to retrieve keys. It could also be a seven letter word with F in the middle. The clues are all about how to perceive them.
    Same as the tree cutting "character." Some say Paul Bunyan, some say it's the Tin Man from Oz while others say it is a play on words.

    New round of rejections sent out... man, what a nasty chapter this is.

    There are at least FIVE alpha sequences that have *very specific* hints at them in the book and in the associated resources. It is crazy. It is completely impossible to tell which one is the real alpha, because all of them have extremely specific hints, to the point that you can tell 100% that the specific sequence is being referred to in multiple places. And most of them have more than one hint!

    That's the crazy thing about this hunt... when you finally have studied it for years and years and can start to understand what's referring to what, the thing starts to unravel into a huge set of *intentional* herrings.

    Assuming all my alphas to date are wrong, I've only got one someone promising one left to give a go this coming week.

    If there is one statement I must agree on, it's this one.

    I've come full circle five times. I don't think I even have anything left to try or submit. One thing is for certain though, the latest clues are "repeat".

    Even the Atocha gives you a clue
    On the first page of the chapter, there is a picture of a boat. On the bow, five dashes is Morse code for zero. E=5
    On the sails, is X's which are missing. You need to do the math and go fill in the blanks.

    Yes, there are definitely clues in that picture! Although like so many other things in this book, some of the things in the picture are for other chapters.

    The X's on the sails represent kisses, as when signing a love letter one might include X's and O's at the end. Kisses are a sign of affection. There are 4 sails. The ship is ostensibly traveling in the direction of chapter 8 (New York), which also features a boat in its drawing. The Atocha was carrying a lot of Spanish treasure and cargo, aka "Porting". The ship is also listing to port (left). This is obviously a reference to Cole Porter's "Love For Sale", in the musical The New Yorkers.

    Furthermore, Diego Solamente was saved when he clung to a portion of the ship. Could this be a reference to "Saved by Zero", by the FiXX?!?
