On delusion and May 9, 2016 or June 21, 2016

It has taken some time to recover, as it is, from another of my epics errors; an error of which anyone choosing to read on should use to "consider the source."  Nothing of relative significance happened on about February 23, 2016 as I had predicted would occur.  From that error, delusion or whatever, is there a purpose or some tangible result that is even a little better than Edison's "we found one more way it didn't work?"

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 "" 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.

So, if February 23, 2016 is the "ready" or a component of "ready," did anything happen on February 23, 2016?  Yes, the largest California earthquake of the year-to-date; an M4.9 at Wasco CA (located north of LA and southeast of San Francisco).  That earthquake was unnoticeable in SF or LA, but it did happen and was noteworthy.

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 ""  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 ""  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.

What might be the meaning of the misnumbered Chapter XXXIX? A "clew" perhaps?

As originally enumerated, WD Gann's "The Tunnel Thru the Air" has 36 enumerated chapters.  And as students of this mysterious book will quickly point out, the 34th chapter titled "Robert Gordon's Seven Days" is incorrectly shown as "Chapter XXXIX."  Oh really?  Perhaps there's a hidden enumeration, to which I alluded in the previous essay, in which "Chapter XXXIX" is the only properly numbered chapter.  In my experience, Mr. Gann does not make such a mistake without it being a clue (or is it "clew," which is context for another essay) for something.

In the previous essay I offered the 4.0 revision of the WD Gann "Map of Time" which is subdivided by logical sections of the book.  The cover is a page, the inside title page is a section, the copyright page is a section, the dedication page is a section and the Foreword pages (2) is a section.  That's 5 sections before Chapter I.  If you re-enumerate Chapter I as Chapter VI you'll find the final chapter currently numbered Chapter XXXVI becomes Chapter XXXXI.  And you'll find the flap of TTTTA, as a section itself, become Chapters XXXXII.  [You can download the MOT file, find my errors, do your own research, replicate my work or refute it at the above link.  Feel free to post errors in the comments section below so we can consider and benefit.]

A couple thoughts on what Mr. Gann might be suggesting if he had intended a re-enumeration of chapters.  I don't think it too much of a stretch to consider Chapter XXXIX as proof that Mr. Gann did intend such a re-enumeration....but that's me.

First thought; forty-two chapters or one quarter of the MOT period of 168 years which, in turn, is one fifteenth of the Biblical Great Week of 2520 years (according to Thomas Troward and "Biblical Prophecy....", 1914).  TTTTA, as I have enumerated every line in the MOT, is 15341 lines long which is 42 years X 365.242.  So, the enumeration of 42 chapters, perhaps, suggests the number of years as well.  And, by applying the concept of doubling and re doubling on page 45 (as in the angle Mr. Gann so promoted as dividing time and space into equal quantities) be get from 42 to 168 years.

Second thought; might the re-numbering of chapters say something in and of itself?  Let's look at two of the most important chapters of the book...two that notably contained a chapter subtitle; Chapter VII or "Future Cycles" and Chapter XXXIX "Robert Gordon's Seven Days."  Take each separately.

Chapter VII becomes Chapter XII or 7 becomes 12.  Wow, what I can make of that.  7 and 12 are the reductions of two great philosopher stone numbers on which I've written extensively, John Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica number 252 (or 1/10th of the Biblical Great Week.....) and the sacred number 432, otherwise recognizable as the number of pages in TTTTA when counting the cover, rear flap and all blank pages.  And the ratio of 12 /7 has ancient meaning as well.  But to digress into the mystery of number is premature...its an endless past time I have found.  Perhaps, the renumbering of 7 to 12 is just a method that Mr. Gann uses to tell us that this chapter is of great importance.

Similarly, Chapter XXXIX becomes, well, Chapter XXXIX, because it is the only properly numbered chapter in TTTTA under my line of reasoning in this essay.  In the next to the last paragraph of the Foreword to TTTTA, Mr. Gann tells us point blank that "Robert Gordon's Seven Days" contains meaning which once realized by the reader enables him to overcome his greatest enemy, "Death," and to understand "why Jesus rose on the third day and rested on the seventh day."  (Hmmm, Jesus did the first of those things but, who rested on the seventh?)  Now that's some gravitas.

I think the numbering of Chapter XXXIX is just another "clew" to indicate a correct direction in research.  But before I close this "chapter" I'll toot my own horn with a comment that is sure to raise the hackles of venerable WD Gann researchers not given such a honor.  What do we find spelled by an acrostic word in the Chapter VII renumbered Chapter XII?

We find "Jim" or my high school name a friend used to call me to infer a feminine bias to my character (which was wholly inappropriate and incorrect as I consider myself quite 'alpha') "Jimi."  Associated with that word is a telestic word "ENS" I've identified as "Earthquake Notification Service."  Hmmm, some flashback to an excessive concern on my part?  Or a prediction of my faux pas?  Or maybe.....

And what do we find spelled as an acrostic/telestic zig zag word at the beginning of Chapter XXXIX?

We find "Ross."  This time the nearest word spelled is "law."  Yes, I believe there is mathematic law spelled out in the resolution of the "Robert Gordon's Seven Days" enigmas and I've done a lot to consider the mathematic relations of space and time in that chapter in many essays I wrote several months ago.  I revisit them from time to time as I have ideas about their application.  

But "ENS" and "Law" are not why I've reprised the above words.  Rather, its just to tweak a nipple of one who'd say "Jimmy, you've really lost it now."   Let them, uncomfortably, say "It's just coincidence."  And wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it.  Sweet dreams.  Didn't Mycroft and Sherlock have a saying about coincidence; that the Lord was seldom so lazy.

About my name being there.  I get down when I am wrong so I'm down a lot.  In this project I reach dead ends, make errors and am wrong a lot.  I'd previously found the "Jimi" more than a year ago and it was partly the substance of the "7th prophecy of WD Gann."  I had not found the zig zag "Ross" you see above.  In the wake of the great error I made about February 23/24, 2016 (which I was thankfully and blessedly wrong) I was down on my ability to read Mr. Gann's intent.  And that's when I found that zig zag word "Ross."  Perhaps something of a needed inspiration?

Next up, I'll ponder a "clew."  You might search TTTTA for that word.

This is fun..... sometimes..... when you aren't busy being wrong about what Mr. Gann may have said,

WD Gann's "Map of Time" Download version 4... and "Chapter XXXIX"

Back to basic research following my most recent failure.  How many times in WD Gann's "The Tunnel Thru the Air" does the author caution us not to give up?

In reflecting on how supposed clues might be misinterpreted to present incorrect though plausible predictions, I did notice 4 errors in previous versions of the MOT.  At least, I interpret the following to be errors in how I enumerated lines found  in WD Gann's "Map of Time" as it was encoded into "The Tunnel Thru the Air:"

  • To accommodate the exact number of days in the 168-year MOT period, an additional line was required (see HERE for an explanation).
  • When comparing the MOT to the first printing text of TTTTA I found on the very first page a horizontal line that suggests a vertical line space should be placed before and after it's occurrence.  In the left portion of the insert below numbered (1) you will see the horizontal line above WD Gann and below the title but you will not see that horizontal line in the shot of the MOT on the right side under (2).  Under item number (3) you will see the revised MOT where there is a horizontal line inserted and a vertical line before and after that horizontal line.
  • Similarly to the foregoing, there is another horizontal line space occurring on the sixth page of the book, that being the copyright page, directly below "by WD Gann."  And similarly, I have added that horizontal line to the MOT with a vertical line space before and after that horizontal line.
  • Also on the copyright page of the first printing of TTTTA there is a noticeable space, almost a quarter of the page, between the line "moving pictures and dram" and the line at the bottom of the page "Printed in the United States of America."
The above four errors (errors in my opinion), add 6 lines to TTTTA.  If you will recall, the 168-year MOT period and the narrative line spacing that I have given TTTTA resulted in there being a difference of four lines...the MOT period being 4 lines greater than the number of lines enumerated in TTTTA.  This was discussed, among other perceived errors, HERE.  If you look at the bottom of the attached shot of the last page of the version 3 MOT, you will see that the last printed line of TTTTA is line number 15336, yet the 168-year MOT period requires 15340 lines.  Obviously, to me, there has been an error and the 6 extra lines found above more than offset that 4 line perceived error.

So now we have 2 lines too many.  Well, I've been giving the MOT credit for a line space preceding the title on the cover page.  See the very first insert above under (2) and you will see line 1 does not contain any narrative and line 2 contains the title.  I have removed that first line space under version 4 of the MOT and you can see that under (3) of the first insert.

All of the above explanations are my accountant's need to "reconcile" what I've done for persons' who are serious about evaluating the credibility of the MOT.  I feel it necessary where for most people, likely, it is not.  So, with the above explanations logged, following is version 4 of the MOT:

One last note.  You will notice a new column on the extreme left of the MOT in which there are Roman numerals in bold italics.  This column renumbers every "section" of the book starting with the Cover as section "I," the inside Title Page as section "II"....  You will find that "section XXXIX" falls on the widely puzzling misnumbered "Chapter XXXIX" otherwise known as "Robert Gordon's 7 days."  Perhaps Chapter XXXIX is the only properly numbered chapter in TTTTA.....

Much more of the section numbering will be revealed in a forthcoming essay in the planning cue.
