Errors are simply the way of life that offer a chance for reflection and renewal. When errors are made there becomes the opportunity for correction and renewal. There is purpose.
Three acrostic and telestic words; "ENS," "TWS" and "RED." Add to that many many more acrostic and telestic lesser words; the name of the author of the movie "Knowing," the hero, heroine and their lesser in the movie "San Andreas" and the objects of its plot of destruction; the Hoover Dam, Los Angeles and San Francisco. All of the above are found coded in WD Gann's "The Tunnel Thru the Air" and the above linked essay. Elsewhere we find an elaborate prediction of the 9/11 tragedy which is explained in "The 6th Manifest Prophecy" series of essays. And we find my name, address and other particulars encoded in "The 7th Manifest Prophecy" series of essays.
The enumeration of words and predictions can go on an on as demonstrated in plodding essays on this blog. We can each play the devil's advocate and dispute whether a prediction was intended and whether it manifested but the mountain of acrostic and telestic words found is dispositive of this; Mr. Gann intended to convey some message to, as argued in several essays, HERE among other places, "our time." The time of the 266th Pope.
There has to be a purpose to Mr. Gann's encoded words. The tantalizing purpose for a market analyst or mathematician would be to enshrine the math and geometry of time and space which also guides all things; the planets, the stock market, all of human events.... Of a lesser and more achievable purpose would be a message for "our time." What lies in our immediate future? And, of course, I've already been wrong about that as cited in the first paragraph. Maybe Mr. Gann was wrong and deluded me. Maybe Mr. Gann was right and I was wrong in what he was intending. Vastly, the latter is the more likely.
In its most pernicious incarnation, delusion is pathologic. It is an aspect of a person who perceives reality incorrectly and in contradiction to the available evidence. It is more than being wrong. In its beneficial form, delusion is simply being wrong and profiting from the error once the veil is lifted.
You be the arbiter; the encoded, veiled words are in TTTTA as Mr. Gann boldly states in the Foreword to TTTTA. What is missing is the verifiable context and purpose. How do the words come together to provide meaning? The delusion is the error in interpreting the context and purpose; in interpreting meaning.
Changing trains of thought; we can all foresee the future if only briefly. Think through your life for an example such as this. You're driving through a green light and you see out of your peripheral vision movement to your right; a car is about to intersect your car's line of movement. "As if in slow motion" is the phrase that comes to mind. You don't know what the future is, but you do know it. You know an accident is imminent. You can "see" it in that flash of thought before it happens.... and it does happen.
That same mixture of scientific knowledge of cause and effect and forethought coalesces every time a short stop envisions the incoming ball hit by the batter into his glove before it happens. The coach tells us "look the ball into the glove" but I never had the feeling that I could see it do that; it was just to fast. I had to see where it was, put my glove in its way, and let it happen...knowing it would. A person can judge cause and effect without identifying the natural laws causing it to occur simply out of past experience. You throw a soft ball to a young child who fails to catch it once, twice, but then, ultimately, catches it. Do we call that a flash of understanding of the Newtonian laws of bodies in motion? Certainly not. What do you call the interplay of natural law, recognition of its manifestation and preparation for reaction to its otherwise result? Do you grant it the word "foresight."
Is this foresight in its briefest incarnation? I think so. It is intuitive until we can elaborate all the natural laws that interplay to create the result; be it right or wrong. And, of course, we can't do the latter for otherwise we would be able to predict the future far further out than the time it takes for a ball to travel from the batter to the short stop.
*******So, as I've sat here for the last three weeks from the apparently erroneous February 23, 2016 prediction, trying to figure out where I was in error, I had that flash of intuition last night. Perhaps it will prove to be delusion...again. Perhaps I'll disprove it as I continue to parse the "clues" of the encoded words of TTTTA. Perhaps I'll prove it substantially correct. Here is the flash of unproven intuition that I had last night.
An acrostic word found early on in TTTTA and that has escaped me for so long is the word "Aim" found beginning on line 18 in the "Map of Time:"
I've also found the word "aim" in several other places in TTTTA and its reverse, "mia" as well. I will be working to determine if "ready...aim...fire" happened in those other places of TTTTA to forewarn of some event.
The "ready" is the great conflagration of the three words "ENS," "TWS," and "RED" which triangulated to identify the date, February 23, 2016. There is also a fourth word "Ten" which I'd previously interpreted as an identifier of magnitude. That conflagration of encoded words appears in the Foreword of TTTTA and looks like this:
Identified in previous essays are the "zig-zag" spelling of the four above words in contrast to the vertical acrostic and telestic encoding of those same words otherwise in TTTTA. I have and continue to interpret the unique zig-zag spellings as forecasting future events where the previous vertical spellings in TTTTA indicated past events that had been predicted in TTTTA.
Is that M4.9 earthquake all there is to the "ready?" Perhaps not. The Mt. Atka Volcano, Alaska, was struck by 6.2 and 6.4 quakes on March 18 and March 12, respectively. Earthquakes are hardly a rarity in Alaska, but 6's would seem to be a "statement." And both epicentered at a volcano? And the March 12 date is on the second line of the 6 e's above, cumulative line number 51.
So, if we have the "ready" monumented in the "conflagration" of acrostic/telestic zig-zag words, and we can see the clear word "Aim" beginning at line 28, where is the focus....where is "fire?" Two dates come to mind, May 9 and June 21.
May 9, 1927 is the much considered date of the Foreword to TTTTA. I've recall having read (perhaps incorrectly) that copies of TTTTA were distributed to persons before that date and that the copyright date was after that date. May 9 seems to be a curiosity among researchers. Its prominence as the first fully articulated date of TTTTA would suggest that it is the focus of "ready...aim...fire." I favor May 9, 2016 but have much research to do regarding the many citations of "aim" in TTTTA.
June 21, 2016 would be a natural focus of "ready...aim...fire." It is the summer solstice. Personally it has meaning because that was the first time I visited Mr. Gann's gravesite, June 15, 2015. It wasn't until shortly after I left I realized that I had standing at his grave at noon of that date. These things have their way of re emerging to haunt me. Can there be a purpose?
And then there's another possibility. The MOT period of 168 years, as I've conceived it, ends on June 21, 2016. As we know from many WD Gann quotations, an end is but a new beginning. A new MOT begins and the dates that you see in the above inserts have counterparts in a new MOT which has a new 168-year period. Those menacing 6 e's have a counterpart set of dates that span from late September 2016 to mid late October 2016. October 19, 2016 or theosophically reduced 1-1-9 or the reverse of 9-1-1 is near that range. I am concerned about that date but for a separate and distinct event from that which I've considered in the previous 2 paragraphs.
All the above is intuition. I've yet to research the word "aim" and whether it is, indeed, a mechanism which prescribes the warning and the event. But isn't that the way things emerge? You see something, you envision an order, you test it and you find it to be either error or truth? And, as always, time will prove.
