    Default Reflection

    I have noticed something when I used a magnifying glass to get a good look at some of the items in The Book of Dark Spells. If I placed the book on a table and gradually moved the lens out, at a certain distance ( about four feet) the page would go out of focus, but then reappear ( coalesced ? ) . Everything on the page was turned from top to bottom and from left to right. This takes a little practice. You have to hold the glass at arm's length and it's difficult to see the whole page at once. But if you look at pages 11,13,and 15 (grow,open fairies, and life pages) they appear correctly without having to turn the book over. Also the last page with the compass will appear correct with North, South, East, and West in their correct locations.
    Also, if any of you have the Reflection page clue that was presented at the beginning of the contest: if you look at that page through the lens every symbol will appear to be directly across from itself. But upon closer examination anything that is curved ( like a cresent moon ) or has small black or white circles is not a true reflection.
    Like so many have mentioned , there has to be a simple way to add or combine the coded symbols to produce a message in simple English. I hope someone finds it soon so we can put this puzzle to rest.

    Nice. Playing around with ideas like this just might be the ticket.
