First, notice that I have not found any other person's four letter names in TTTTA. I'm sure they are there, but in days of looking, I haven't found them. There are many, many three letter names and I can correlate most of them, varyingly, with real persons that I "know" influenced Mr. Gann. For example, I find John Dee's 46 times in TTTTA. No, not John, but "Dee" and "007." I've recounted this in the companion series regarding what I style the 6th prophecy but I'll include it here. I find "dee" 45 times in TTTTA. But I said 46 only 2 lines above. John Dee was a philosopher, scientist, mathematician, astrologer, and magician in Queen Elizabeth I's court. His was incredibly learned for the early 1500s having a personal library that dwarfed that of Cambridge. A contemporary of the now alleged writer of some or all of Shakespeare's works and also alleged Rosicrucian, Lord Francis Bacon, John Dee was identified to the Queen in personal correspondence as "007." I found "Dee" in telestics 45 times and only as a telestic word. Never an acrostic word. Non random? Yes. But not proof to me. How would it be proven to me? I "knew" I would find the proof; that Mr. Gann had foreseen the need for proof and it

*be there.*

**would**And I woke up one morning, after having read Dee's "Monas Hieroglyphica" and pondered his philosophers stone number for hours, and I knew how Gann would confirm the 45 instances referred to John Dee. I searched and I found on page 198 of the first edition TTTTA:

Find it yourself, first edition TTTTA is on archive.org. But that was not all. There were 22 "dee"s before the "007" and there were 23 after. The "007" is exactly the middle of book in reference to the number of "dee"s. 22 intervals before and 22 intervals after. The same number of stops, 22, in Robert Gordon's 7 days (see my many, many struggling essays on the math and geometry of RG's 7 days). Still, it doesn't stop there. I've numbered every line in TTTTA and revised my numbering twice for the inevitable "Ross-ups" (my code for how often I "screw-up). I'm on version 3 of the numbering. Ignoring the forward, the title and blank pages and the back flap and blank pages, there are 15158 lines on the numbered pages of TTTTA. And the midpoint or "keystone" of "007" is 7579 as you can see in the extreme left column of the above insert. Two times 7579 is 15158. Perfect.

Sorry about the digression, but I thought it necessary to show how I believe I verify things. How the evidence of non randomness has built up on my thinking such that I have little doubt about the "design."

Back to the improbability of "Jimi" and "ross," the first person to, likely, have discovered acrostics/telestics, and, certainly, to have written about them and disclosed them. Each of the two words is a joint probability and within them ordering is important to create an intelligible word. Further, there is a joint probability that the two words will appear without ordering. I will address only the joint probability of one four-letter word as I am hardly qualified to do that.

A fair coin tossed four times has what probability of four consecutive heads? 1/2 X 1/2 X 1/2 X 1/2 or 1 divided by 2 to the fourth power. The probability of a head on a single toss to the power of number of ordered outcomes jointly required. Alternately, 50% X 50% X 50% X 50% = .0625. If you said you were going to flip a fair coin 4 times, the chance you'd get 4 straight heads would be 6.25%. Don't make book on it.

The joint probability of ONE four letter name is similar to the coin toss. Assuming every letter in the alphabet has an equal likelihood, the formula is 1/26 X 1/26 X 1/26 X1/26 = .00000219. Actually, this is incorrect but substantially correct….regardless of the admitted incorrectness of this formulation, the answer will be the same. It is vastly improbable that the person that 'outs' the acrostic/telestic coding of TTTTA will find his four-letter last name in the 30,316 letters (15158 above lines X the first letter of each line and the last letter of each line). I'll let the statisticians wrestle with how improbable….but only matters if you to know how many zeros you put to the right of the decimal, 12, 50, 100.

Still, I "knew" there would be simple confirmation a non statistician could recognize. And then I knew how Gann would prove it to me. I'd previously seen "The Imitation Game" over the holidays and was stunned when, in a bar scene, Hugh Alexander told Alan Turing he'd discover the keyword to the Enigma cipher…it was Mathew 7:7 "Ask…seek….find." A recurrent scripture quoted once and paraphrased twice more in TTTTA. Did Mr. Gann predict the keyword to device that many say would tip the balance of World War II? I think so but haven't proven it to myself? That thought brought me to see that movie again on January 27, 2015. I put that date in my calendar.

I've never paid to see the same movie twice. I've seen some movies I'd be embarrassed to admit to learned people dozens of times, but never paid twice. I saw "The Imitation Game" with my wife and neighbors (as my excuse) a second time. Sitting there, thinking of ciphers, I "knew" how I'd have my name confirmed. I thought, can I leave the theatre, drive home, look it up and get back in time to pick up the wife and neighbors. No. I had to sit there and stew.

I'd previously seen dozens (in my best guess) of the word "tot" and hadn't a clue why it was being spelled so often. I live on "Tottenham" Lane. I also remembered there were exactly 19 instances of the word "ten" because I'd studied that word, specifically, in the acrostics and telestics. But I did not recall a "ham." Still, I "knew" he'd find a way to spell Tot-ten-ham.

And it took only seconds, with the Excel "finder" I'd developed to find acrostic and telestic words in the first edition copy of TTTTA. At least I found 2 words on pages 350 and 351. I'd gotten lucky; while there multitudes of "tot"s and 19 "ten"s there was one and only one "ham." That is where those 3 words, "Tot-ten-ham" HAD to be spelled. And there was "tot" on page 350 and "ham" on page 351. There had to be a "ten" in between. And there wasn't. I stared and started at the screen but there wasn't a "ten." With a double dose of Z-quill that night, I slept well.

And when I woke up I knew how he'd spell "ten." I've collapsed the two pages and present it

*HERE.*

He spelled "toT-10-ham." This is where I live;

*Tottenham Lane*.

The above was enough for me. But he wasn't finished with the proof; not even close. Hence, look for a part 3 of 3.
