Once again, lots of encryption-esque hints in here.. the 4x4 matrix, repeated towards the bottom, etc.
Ashton comes through with a lot o' clues:
The Greek in Dec 4, 1991 means this: "the stone which the builders rejected". It's from Matthew 21:42 and is quoted by Jesus as Psalms 118:22 as being prophetic of his coming rejection by the religious leaders.
...after a bit of digging, the Hebrew in Dec 4, 1991 is from Ezra 3:13 and means this: "So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people." This is in response to the rebuilding of the temple which was destroyed by the Babylonians and allowed to be rebuilt under Cyrus of Persia around 530-500BC.
One more for you guys: the four letter word in Dec 4, 1991 and on one of the mailing sent to Bryan is Hebrew. M-F-T-CH, maphteach, pronounced maf-tay-akh, means "key".
I also noticed that the first word of the second line of the quote from Ezra 3:13, he misspells "T-R-V-A-T" as "T-R-V-A-H" (Tav and He look awfully similar). Indeed he kinda has a weird way of writing Hebrew ... not that I am any expert, mind you.http://www.khouse.org/blueletter/tmp_dir/conc/932962530.html#13
clue=It says: and is there not the nation [can't read his hebrew--but its a plural of a noun possibly misspelling of acquaintances] cheering voice of joy (or celebration) to a weeping voice. He is copying from a Torah, but doesnt know how to write Hebrew--so his penmanship looks like crap. name=Jeremy
clue=The red hebrew is key, as noted correctly. The spelling for cheer is correct (he/hay at the end). name=Jeremy
From the peanut gallery...
To: bhance@AZStarNet.com Subject: http://www.azstarnet.com/~bhance/mayday/texts/91-dec4.html Data Express... This data is from the Form located at the URL: http://www.azstarnet.com/~bhance/mayday/texts/91-dec4.html ++++++++++++++ email= clue=Hance: Take this Jeremy person with a grain of salt. He probably means well enough, just don't draw conclusions from his less than blindingly brilliant remarks. Ashton doesn't appear to be a Mental Wizard either--but in terms of the Grand Design, we all have equal value. name=A wayfaring strangerhance: well, then, i'll just let you worry about what will happen if you ever meet ashton or jeremy...
11/5/00 clue=The same sequence appears in various later pages--same like a portion of it but not the whole thing. If its an address in a file that would be a simple explanation. Might make sense because the complex parts would distract the reader and only those actually doing whatever this is would know how to access the main file. So the address wouldn't have to be complicated. name=cynic2
clue: There was a message in an older letter that said what number would come next after Winthrop, and that would be 1.68179283051...I don't know what the name would be to accompany it. One thing though, it mentioned something about gamma, and if we take the next number to be in radians, maybe that gamma is pointing at that position, which in degrees is 96.3596 I believe.
clue: 12 and 3 divide the circle of a clock face into a quadrant which is a fourth and that must tie into the recurring pattern of 4. The guys on the inside would know where to set the initial coordinates from what appears in this ad and then they could use Mickey's suggestion about radians. If you think of the really large number of announcements or advertisements or whatever these are, it would stagger the mind to locate anything because they could use so many ways of moving from an initial position. I think they are using machines which seems to be an additional argument for making it look crazy. It would swamp anybody outside the intelligence community to enter all this data into a database, especially when it appears to be assembled by lunatics. Like they say about the cold in Minnesota--"keeps out the riffraff."
hance: I have to wonder what kind of machines are made for this work.
clue: Take a calculator and work out the numbers they way they have in the hierarchy marked off by the rectangles. I have and it works. Anybody that thinks this is done by funloving people drinking beer and eating pizza should find that sequence of numbers in some reference. I'll bet any amount it is in NO printed reference anywhere BUT it works. That's what I mean about it looking harmless, a lot of it does appear goofy and they count on it because people like "costas" work for the CIA, the FBI and so forth. Look like learned lunatics and/or a social club and the really powerful people in society will leave you alone to do your thing.
clue: The Leitmotiv quote appears in a few pages, and it sure sounds like Bunyan. But I can't find it in Bunyan. I can't find it anywhere.
clue: 12 and 3 divide a clock-face into a quarter, a fourth. Simple point but it probably fits the thing they have 4 levels. I wonder if the diagram that gives four levels in this one isn't giving a timetable or schedule for something they were doing.

clue: dec 4 1991 the sequence of numbers marked with names of principals of the orphanage and tied to symbols at the bottom of the announcement are squres or square roots of each other, depending on which way you go. using the number in the triple box below and square rooting it repeatedly, you get the following. (note, as they kept it to 9 significant digits, i will as well) 1st root, 7.455891915 * 10 to the 49th power, 2nd root 8.634750671 e 24, 3rd root 2.938494626 e 12, 4th root 1714203, 5th root 1309, 6th root, 36.1839 (decimals added here for a reason), 6th root 6.015307. 7th root, 2.452612306. 8th root (equal to the map) 1.5660818327 seeing how closely that 6th root approached 6, i thought perhaps that it SHOULD equal six, and that the cutting of the original number caused the error. taking 6 and squaring it, however, gave 4.01199191454 to the 99th, therefore, that is not the case. it seems obvious to me that the square above, directly below the mickey mouse is supposed to be filled out according to the symbold that the boxes equal, and perhaps based on the level that the symbols are derived at. for example, the main boxes are first level, but the 5.59032425 e 99 is in a third box, like the third level of a steppe pyramid. so its used in replacement for finding the third level derivatives of the symbols. also, mickey states that the next number is supposed to be 1.68179283051. well, continuing th patter of the numbers on the announcement, square root 8 is 2.828427125, and square root of that number, is, in fact, 1.68179283051. ill have to look at the announcement where thats mentioned to see if theres a clue there. now, the greek has been interpreted as, the stone which the builders rejected. this right below a block with the sides named. is it possible that one would find the value of the sides such that the block would not be used in some building? the odd interstices of the block make me wonder what it would be used for. looking at may 1 91, (the dec 4 91 announcement says dimensions : adw (which i just figured out 5 minutes ago means arizona daily wildcat, i feel DUUUUMB. ) 5/1/91, and looking at the notes, i notice a wonderful chart about the numbers on the side. 1. = Winthrop; 1.6 = Owsley; 1.61 = Schrodinger; 1.618 = Bradwardine (answer to Hance's query on 3/20/91 page); 1.1680 = Farragut; 1.61803 = Latimer & Ridley; 1.618033 = Kitchener Pasha; 1.6180339 = Martin Chemnitz; 1.61803398 = Matthias Flacius (Illyricus); 1.618033988 = Mistah Kurtz; 1.6180339887 = Melanchthon; 1.61803398874 = The Fuzzy Furry Freak Brothers; 1.618033988749 = The Little Orphan Children; 1.6180339887498 = Gerhard; my first thought was that the number of decimals in the above would be which number in the sequence of squares was eqal to the symbol, but that doesnt work. also, a note on the mickey mouse reference. what it refers to is so obvious, we dont mention it, just look at it in context. what is being discussed is the mickey mouse watch, and i know theres been more than a few references in pop cultue where the phrasing is used, sometimes seriously, sometimes as sarcasm. so its possible that the quadrant described is worthless and the point is that its a watch (or chronometer), or perhaps that its a mouse, or.. one of the many references. who knows.

Bryan, I solved the 91-Dec4 Dimensions logic puzzle today. I have not posted any results to the Mayday Website yet. Please see: http://www.borderschess.org/91-dec4-dimensions.htm. ---------------------------------------------------------------- The Mickey clock reference at the top of the announcement inside three boxes simply refers to 15:00 hours on a 24 hour clock. ---------------------------------------------------------------- I made three webpages to show the first 2001 digits of Pi, Phi, and E (e) for easier viewing: http://www.borderschess.org/Pi-2001.htm http://www.borderschess.org/Phi-2001.htm http://www.borderschess.org/e-2001.htm To do all sorts of searches within the first 200 million digits of Pi, go to: http://www.angio.net/pi/bigpi.cgi Here are just a couple of interesting facts about Pi and E (exponential 'e'). Add the first 144 decimal digits (not including the "3.") of Pi to get 666. The year 1984 is in reverse in Pi at the 480th decimal digit location. The following dates for the Confessio Augustana (June 25, 1530) can be found in Pi in the following forms and locations: 6251530 @ 9,262.168 06251530 @ 106,485,604 15300625 @ 31,875,879. 7777777 can be found in Pi at 3,346,228, while 77777777 is at 24,658,601 decimal digit. For "E", add the first 33 decimal digits (not including the "2.") to get 144. The year 1984 is located at the 784th decimal digit, while the year 1530 is backwards at decimal digit 717. Have fun searching for other numbers used throughout the ADW announcments. Oh, I found the number 144,000 repeated 217 times in the first 200 million digits of Pi.

The Leitmotiv is based on this passage from Bunyan's "THE GREATNESS OF THE SOUL": "If thou makest first a trial of the successfulness of thy endeavours upon things far lower, more base, but much more easy to obtain, as crowns, kingdoms, earldoms, dukedoms, gold, silver, or the like, how vain are these attempts of thine; and yet thou thinkest to possess thy soul of heaven!~T (http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext04/jbunc10.txt)
