    Default The Language of Faeries

    According to folklore fairy folk counted by fives, I see that there are 5 of them on 38 and 39. Ireland, homeland of the faries has five great roads, five provinces and five paths of the law.
    The number '5' has always been regarded as mystical and magical according to folklore and according to the Pythagoras, mathematician and philosopher, five is the number of man, because of the fivefold division of the body, and the ancient Greek division of the soul- the five representing one of the five elements that make up man: fire, water, air, and earth, and psyche.
    Since fairy folk can only count by fives that would explain our 15 number code and our 25 letter alpha.
    Also, these are all uneven, like 13...or a triangle instead of a square. Perhaps our even code is actually uneven.

    I guess an even code with one piece nary would be uneven, right?

    Default yep

    I think you're on to something. I've noticed the whole fairy theme and did some outside research on fairies in literature, esp Shakespeare...

    could be at least a new point of view to look at the story.

    the key is definitely in the story and NOT just the artwork. MS has said that over and over. The artwork may give you clues to finding/solving what's in the text, though.
