this chapter tells you what to do when you find THE chest. (once again, not the bronze box)
Here is where Indiana Jones can help. its risky business, this treasure hunt.
Bob – Did I mention that I have a Templar Knights Solve? See: Chapter 27,…page 129,…in the link below,…regarding the Templar Knights,…and the Ark of the Covenant,…and how they may have found its hidey space. I read that Hugh de Payens lowered himself down on 25 feet of rope,…into a space much Like the one Indiana Jones accessed,…in that movie:
And in my Umberto Eco book,…anyone who mentions the Templars is NOT a fool (See: my other post about that).
Bob – Since there are A LOT of my posts to wade through,…now I am calling myself a “lunatic” instead of a “fool”:
“The lunatic is all idée fixe, and whatever he comes across confirms his lunacy. You can tell him by the liberties he takes with common sense, by his flashes of inspiration, and by the fact that sooner or later he brings up the Templars…There are lunatics who don’t bring up the Templars, but those who do are the most insidious. At first they seem normal, then all of a sudden…”
– Umberto Eco, Foucault’s Pendulum
E- all the great ones were referred to as lunatics at some point in their career.
Bob – OK,…here is a serious link,…about the “lunatic fringe”:
“Examples could be multiplied—Einstein was (and still is) often portrayed as the “Mad Scientist,..”
And,…now it’s the lunatic vs. the fool:
“Sadly, new paradigms turn old ideas on their head and make fools of us all—even geniuses. But they also—not so sadly—advance our understanding of the universe and our place in it.”
Bob & E*
thank you for affirming my lunacy as being “greatly inspired.” Every bored housewife eventually achieves lunacy. In my case… ttotc lunacy. If my solution to the poem proves true, I will have my husband eat my laminated map to prove he was wrong and I am crazy. LOL 🙂
Bob – Oh,…look! There is a whole blog spot for “Historical Lunatics”,…so of course I looked up Albert Einstein on it:
LOL E*, I am so gullible! Funny stuff, I was thinking how come I never heard any of this stuff? Hahahaha
Me too Deb… Lol 🙂
Does anyone know what the object is on page 219, TFTW?
I was wondering the same thing Gilly.
It is a dragonfly found on the plain ware jar on both ends. There was also sixty nine dots around the rim. The jar measured 7 1/2 inches long and 2 1/2 inches high.
The dragonfly had a dark galena-glaze.
Did you get that info from the San Lazaro book?
Thank you Geydelkon. The book was too pricey to buy and I wont sit and read it at the store. Very kind of you to share the info.
Deb would you like to borrow it.
Thank you very much. Dragonflys again…does anyone believe that there are no helpful hints in the book. I believe there could be a few repetitions.
