    Default CB puzzles with question marks

    Has anyone else noticed that certain puzzles in the companion book include a faint question mark behind their description in their header? For example, #38 on p. 65 has a question mark behind the word illusion. Also on #46 p.70, #55 p.77 and #91 p. 91.

    Very odd. I thought maybe that all the ones that said 'Illusion' had the question marks, but some do some don't. And they aren't all the same kind of problem. I think that this is some interesting info, but what to do with it....

    Default Similar Wording - Both Books

    I have noticed on "How to Use This Book" page in the CB some wording that mirrors wording in ATT.

    CB text states this book will "give you a new way to look at the world, a way to see things you have never seen before, things that were right before your eyes" etc...

    And then in Zac's dream in ATT he "saw the Great Forest in a new way, he saw things he had never seen before, and he got these things and put them in the little boxes" , etc....

    I am paraphrasing here, but this has been interesting to me for some time. So, the world and the Great Forest are "alike"; the things he put in the little boxes were letters....should we be putting some text from the CB in a grid? And the phrase "right before your eyes" got me to looking at literal text in ATT. Words that are right before your "I"s....found some interesting things. THe CB page also talks about "it" alot...."I promise its not hard, it was there all along, etc..." So I looked in ATT text for any word falling in front of "it".

    I found "ken" "tuck" this way in the text....the last "y" could be any number of places......this makes me think by studying the text this way you could get the states names where tokens were hidden....there didn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason to connect the "ken" and "tuck", so if they are there, all these little pieces are just randomly placed...

    I haven't had the time or inclination to do the entire text this way....just wanted to point this out in case someone else wants to try it! :P

    i've tried the letters in front of "u" in several places, because he said the answers were right in front of "you", but that was when i was focusing on the text. I ended up with lots of ooooooo's which i guess could be vigenereered

    Default companion book

    AVENTURINE: A rare type of glass used in the manufacture of marbles, which gives a shimmering effect when caught in the proper lighting. Most common colors of aventurine glass are green (the more common) and red (far more rare.)

    Got this from the "marble page" posted on previous text....could be a clue as the first word in Clue 3 is close?
