Duncan found the historic 'Key' whilst researching a copy of a 500+ year old artefact.

Now that the puzzle is ended… Can the identity of this artefact be revealed so that we can identify the 'Key' for ourselves?

There should be no intellectual copyright for an artefact 500+ years old which I guess is in the public domain.

We would then have something 'Solid' to work with..!

I've already told you what the artifact is, and it is on the Timemonk website...The Declaration of Independence!

Get a copy, enlarge it, and start looking really close. Read it, but don't just read it. Look at it. What is wrong? What looks off a bit? It is there, but you also need gematria. Start counting the lines and pay attention to what is on some of the important numbered lines. Why are there mistakes? Can you do anything with them?

That should keep you busy.

One more thing...

FIND 666 on the Declaration of Independence!

3. Hello Phil,

I must have missed the past posting where you stated this...
I am confused, though....
Isn't the DOI only 235 years old?
(Sorry if you've covered this)

But, you do have my curiosity up.
Maybe I'll look into this 666 you mention is on it...
(Might need some help, though)

I think Duncan was misquoted about the 500 year thing.

It is definitely on the Declaration. Look at line 27.

Look at line 2, notice that 'America' is written with what appears to be an 'H' instead of an 'A'. There is a reason.

Have the Declaration printed in a good poster size and laminated. You will need to draw on it. Use markers that can be erased easily.

Phil,

Didn't DB mention 500 years himself somewhere?

I'll check.

6. Here's the quote from the second interview:

[18:57] <APPRENTICE> I am just asking if the "artifact"is older than 500 years.
[18:58] <sacred_prize> The misquote was about me using an artifact in London. The artifact is just under 500 years old, but it is not the only or major artifact.

I don't think "just under" is 225 years.

The TM movie did say (by intimation) that the secret is contained in the DOI however.

7. I have started to look at literature published "just under 500 years ago" and based on the release date of 2005 for LRB I figured I should allow a couple of years leeway to allow for the fact the "artifact" may have had its 500th birthday after the discovery but before publication. So my guess would be at the earliest if it were literature then 1560 onward should be looked at. There are a few contenders, the last of which would be King James bible of 1611 (I figured that was getting close to 450 yr mark rather than "just under 500 years".

The bishops bible was published in 1568 so may be worth a look.

This one jumped out at me (personal bias) - 1564.

I might draw up a list of possible books and share the links in one hit rather than lengthening this thread too much.

Next I will look at art, sculpture, etc created in this time frame.

1776 - 1306= 470

i know this wouldn't make sense superficially..
but perhaps there's more than one definition to the "age" of something
maybe food for thought.. maybe not..

2005-499~470= 1506~1535

Da Vinci died 1519

10. All to one...
