Lets not forget that the band also denied any involvement in the enigma, and they blamed it completely on the record company EMI, yet they keep putting out 11:11 clues that has absolutely nothing to do with EMI whatsoever...
You cant really take what PF says to the media to heart. DG said he would never play with Roger again and look where that one went.... then DG said that their would never be another reunion again and already there are rumours that they are planning to reform once more.....
I beleive the wall in TDB has something to do with Judy Garland from Wizard of OZ. There is a daisy that is named a garland, and in the pulse booklet (I think) they list the date of Judy Garlands death. Judy Garland was actively involved with some strange cults such as the Process Church (which is an offshoot of Scientology, and both are based on the teachings of Aleister Crowley)
This mystery goes very deep. Do some diggin and see what you come up with.
Okay, probably a stupid suggestion....but..... has anyone thought of building a phenakistascope using the images in the booklet....using the page numbers to sequence them and the finding a register key to orient them? there are some clues in the Genesis communications that suggest flipping through the pages....using eyes to orient them...just a thought
I AM NOT GONNA PLAY THIS GAME, FOR THE RESOLUTION IS RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.
Do you remember the song "RETURN TO INNOCENCE"? I just cannot remember what is THE NAME OF THE AUTHOR (can someone find it for me and post it?), but the lyrics are VERY IMPRESSIVE.
DID I NOT PROMISE THAT I WOULD RETURN?
I KEEP MY WORD, WILL YOU KEEP YOURS?
I HAVE TOLD YOU IT IS VERY SIMPLE. I NEVER CHANGE AND NEVER LEAVE YOU HUNGRY AND THIRSTY. NOW, IT IS TIME TO REJOICE AND TO RETURN. I CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR ENDURANCE. NOW, PUT YOUR NEW OLD PERSPECTIVES INTO IT AND THE WORLD WILL BE A PEACEFUL PLACE OF FREEDOM, LOVE AND JUSTICE.
So I got to thinking, you know. They really have no option for the page numbers. Unless they're gonna be clearly wrong, the numbers themselves probably aren't important. They have to be on the one page, or the other.
And that got me thinking that maybe the page they were on was what was important, and not the way they could be added or multiplied. So, I wrote it out, just based on whether they were on an odd page or an even page. It looks like this: OOOEOOOOOOE
So I turned that into a binary digit. Here it is: 11101111110
Sure enough, there's great significance in that specific number and it does tie into a lot of the artwork, specifically, November, elf:elf, and the languages on the page heads.
If we can agree that it is, in fact, significant, then the odds of arriving at that number randomly or accidentally are along the lines of 2000:1 against.
That's all I got so far. Someone mentioned Edward Elgar's enigma and it's been floating out in the void, and he did actually do a famous cipher called the Dorabella cipher (currently unsolved) which reminded me a lot of the page heads in how the information was encoded, so I've been turning that about.
The Dorabella Cipher
The methodology behind the encryption isn't difficult to solve... he actually spelled out the method in a book if I recall where using an alphabet of 24 letters (Victorian, I'd presume, where I/J and U/V are paired), which is set up in 3 sets of 8.
ABCD EFGH IKLM NOPQ RSTV WXYZ
And then he'd make characters which contained one to three arcs, indicating which line the letter belonged to, and an orientation (one of the compass points), which defined which letter in that line.
This is possibly related to this frame of thought: Orient yourselves a first time, then
Open your minds again a second time to truly move ahead
In the placement of the page heads, I can see two sets of eight, and can a little less easily guess two sets of three, so there very well could be two ciphered messages there. The two sets of 8 are: Compass Direction of the head (which way it's looking); and Position on the page (but, are there 9? If you drew a tic-tac-toe board on the page there would be nine divisions surely, but if design limitations state you cannot place a page number in the middle of the page -- and surely they would -- then we must eliminate the middle square as a candidate. Once that is omitted, 8 remain).
The sets of 3 I can think of are: Head type (if you imagine them spinning on a central axis, when returned to their upright position they will face Left or Right... which makes two, and the two of them together would make three); and let's call it "value" (eg. Transparent Black, Opaque Black, or colored).
Again, the sets of 3 are ehhhhh... not solid. But they could lead to a new area of investigation.
But I think the year lines up perfectly. So add that to the pile.
EDIT: Oh yes, another set of three that could be derived is: Neutral, Central, Entente
And, as an aside (mostly unrelated), I noticed that AGDfF with a X looks a whole bunch like ADFGX, which is a german cipher which preceeded the ADFGVX cipher, both of which were in use at that time. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADFGVX_cipher
