I've previously explained the clues found that a great earthquake would occur in the last weeks of February 2016 (likely between the February 21st and March 3rd) which corresponds the October 16, 1848 Marlboro NZ earthquake (see that date in the farthest left margin); a 7.9 on the Richter scale. The related section of the MOT, including narrative and acrostic/telestic words, is as follows:
Beginning on line 55 of the book, which is line 17 of the Foreword, we find the acrostic word "TaIto" highlighted in pink above. For so long I believed Mr. Gann was referring to "Tai" which connoted to me far east philosophy. I needed to add the next two letters, 'to' to arrive at Taito, a very densely populated ward of Tokyo, Japan. It was the site of the 1923 Great Earthquake of Tokyo, which, as I have read, is reputed by Guness Book of Records as the most destructive in all of history (see HERE). An estimated 142,000 died in and around Tokyo. Humph, and in the telestics we find the word "yen" which is highlighted in green above.
I cannot derive from the perceived clues outlined in previous essays whether Mr. Gann is indicating an earthquake will occur in Tokyo or in San Francisco. Its a far too coincidental, for my thinking, to find the October 16, 1848 earthquake date in the left margin, the February 24 date in the right most margin (the MOT repeating or mirror date) and Taito spelled acrostically between. And that is not to mention the associated narrative found on those same lines:
"or will happen in the future." Can this be coincidence? Would a 7.9R earthquake in either city be devastating to the world economy? I continue to think, should it occur, it will happen in San Francisco. Taito only reinforces the theme of 'earthquake' and the magnitude of the event. But that's me.
A second consideration from the above MOT excerpt; the nature of the "6e's" shown in red. As a background, the 6 consecutive lines ending in 'e' in the Foreword were so statistically improbable the I became convinced TTTTA would be populated with hundreds of acrostic words that laid out Mr. Gann's predictions, indicated his scientific/mathematic methods and explained his spiritual philosophies. I have not been disappointed as the many essays document.
The "6e's" are more than the warning of the book's encoding, again as I have explained in earlier essays. They are emphasis, I believe, of the gravity of events that may occur between the dates of March 3, 2016 and March 18, 2016. As the dates of the left side of the MOT are theorized to repeat during the dates of the right side, we need to look at what happened during those dates in 1848. Two themes struck me in reviewing 1848, the "Year of Revolutions" in Europe and the consequent events in New York City.
In 1848 dozens of European nations (50 as I recall) were in revolt between the working classes and the reigning aristocracies. Key players were Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx; political "community organizers" who were expelled from several nations. Pointedly on February 21, 1848 Karl Marx' "Communist Manifesto" was translated and published by the Communist League in London. Needless to say, 1848 was a time of great financial distress in Europe.
As a partial result of the 1848 revolutions large numbers of Europeans immigrated to the United States and principally the ports of New York City and New Orleans. Also occurring at this time was the great Irish Cholera outbreak which both resulted in migration of Irish to Europe and the U.S....some carrying the disease. There was a great outbreak of Cholera in New Orleans and New York City. Many people died in New York City beginning in fall 1848.
If the months of February and March of 2016 will mirror the corresponding periods of 1848 then the U.S. will see similar themes of great political distress and an outbreak of disease. The "6e's" would seem to emphasize the critical nature of this time period. And, as in the movie "Knowing," "EE" stands for "everyone else." A site specific event affects a local population followed by events that affect "everyone else." That's hard to swallow, but not hard to imagine. Not for me at least.
Let's look more closely at those February 21, 1848 (publication of "Communist Manifesto") and the October 16, 1848 (Marlboro earthquake)....dissimilar events and peoples. The beginning of the 168-year MOT cycle is that year's summer June 21st 1848 or 121 days after February 21, 1848 and 117 days before the October 16, 1848 earthquake. Those two dates are near equidistant from the 1848 summer solstice and mirror one another on the MOT. Similarly, the February 21, 2016 and October 19, 2016 dates (October 19, 2016 has been mentioned with great concern in other essays) are equidistant from the June 21, 2016 summer solstice; they should mirror themselves. And all four dates in 1848 and 2016 are, effectively, mirror dates. [On reflection, at noon on June 21, 2016, the summer solstice, I stood at Mr. Gann's gravestone for the first time and read Biblical verse that was the source for "Marie's note." And February 21 is my birthdate.]
Which all indicates the importance of the first of the 2016 dates; late February 2016. If nothing happens in that time period that mirrors the nature of 1848, then all that I've written is, thankfully, just an enjoyable and blessed waste of my time. On the other hand...
None of the above is proven with mathematics as Mr. Gann would say is necessary. It is simply one person's thinking on what might be clues left by a person who, I believe, could work the math. Math is what I'm good at; not history, not riddles. Simple math that is; hardly Gann-esk. This last week and most notably on Christmas day, I realized what might prove to be a breakthrough in studying the mathematics of repetition in the markets. It is incredibly simple in comparison to how Mr. Gann may have evaluated the math of repetition in world, national and personal events. I firmly believe Mr. Gann's fixation with markets, after making the money he needed to make early in his career, was simply his laboratory for proving mathematics of time and space which similarly exist in all of nature. Natural law.
My question to myself is whether Mr. Gann was an Einstein level mathematician or was Mr. Einstein a Gann level mathematician? If what I perceive might someday be proven, then I'd say the latter is the case. Where Mr. Einstein documented Special and General Relativity only to, perhaps, having explained seconds per 100 years difference in Newtonian prediction of Mercury's orbit, might Mr. Gann may have predicted the events of 2016 some 88 years in advance?
Perhaps, "Time proves all things."
