    hmmmm.....thanks reckart.....now this makes it a little more interesting.
    Still don't know what to make of DVOEN though. Maybe you need to keep crankin' them both - different shift.

    I believe you are underestimating at least a few mysterious strangers. But enough of this off topic jabber.

    No, Fenix please do contribute to my "Conspiracy Theory" thread at:

    It sounds like you have something to offer.

    Did not mean to muddy the waters dubulup. Was just making the point regarind a single letter connection in a dropcap with a pointing fairy to the Beetle...on pg. 69. Even tho the Beetle is associated also with pg. 63 in the image on the page, there are as you noted, 3 letters in the "dropcap", not one.

    That's something I have been working on. Connecting a single letter with a pointing fairy dropcap to a creature and constructing a grid with that letter as a starting point.

    But my approach is different from Doc's. I think it's possible that the grid on pg. 16 may be a model to "overlay" if you will, onto any pointing fairy drop cap to determine the "starting point letter" for your 5x5 grid.

    I found 11 of the creatures so associated...some of the creatures were not INSIDE the dropcaps...but were to be found on the dropcap page image. The Firefly is the only creature that doesn't associate with a pointing fairy.

    Default Notes on this op's topic

    I played around with this idea of pooklover's for a while:

    Z F D B W B A S A O T Y T T T P R H I T

    I took those letters and put them around a box as shown:

    ….T….I….H….R….P†¦.
    Z………………… ……....T
    F………………… …….....T
    D………………… ……....T
    B………………… ….......Y
    W………………… …......T
    …B….A….S….A….O†.

    I just started at the top left and went ccw. (It really doesn’t matter which way it goes)
    Then I replaced each letter with the corresponding letter of the alphabet, because we need a code of numbers; ex z=26, f=6 and so on to get this…

    …..20….9….8….18….16 €¦.
    26………………†……..….......20
    6………………… ………….........20
    4………………… ………….........20
    2………………… …................25
    23………………†...…...…......20
    …..2…..1….19….1…...1 5..….

    Then I just started adding the boxes up. I added each number that would correspond to the box. For the first one, 26+2+20+20=68, it looks like this:

    ……...20.….9.…..8…..1 8.….16….
    26....68….56….73…..65…..77 .…20
    6…...48….36….53…..45†..57.…20
    4…...46….34….51…..43†..55.…20
    2…...49….37….54…..46†..58.…25
    23….65….53….70…..62… ..74….20
    ……...2…...1.….19…... 1…...15..….

    but as most of my theories go, I get bored with it after not coming up with anything too significant after a while and move on to something else. Anyway I thought I'd post up some of my notes on it, for the most part these were half written in notepad, inported and finished in excel, and then saved to html. Since they're mostly grid types and I don't want to bother with the forum formatting, i've got them hosted on the link below.

    My personal belief is that everyone is focusing on zipcodes more than they should be. The 5x5 square is probably used to give entire sentences that provide exact locations. Even if you did figure out a zip code where would you go from there?

    Actually if someone filled a box with what appears to be zip codes, it could also be viewed as enciphered text for a checkerboard cipher.
