[There are screenshot links that I appended at the right of each observation to which you can refer to and re test each observation. If you want to derive the above 45 earthquakes since June 22, 1848, there are three lists of "Deadliest," "Most Destrustive" and "Strongest" earthquakes at Wikipedia; simply combine the lists, eliminate pre June 22, 1848 earthquakes and eliminate duplications.]
I call the above a "Best Fit" because the method is to find the date of each earthquake and then to try and spell the word that best typifies the nature of that earthquake. For example, for the 2010 Haiti earthquake (red highlight), I wanted to find the word "Haiti" spelled very near its date located in the MOT, January 12, 2010:
Lo and behold, I found "HAITI" spelled in all capital letters (there are 2 i's, a cap on line 1191 and a lower case on 1192), in all acrostic letters and they span 16 lines above the date line, 1177, and 16 lines below the date line (the lower cap 'i'). Every letter of the word located proximate to the exact date of the earthquake (1/12/2010 highlighted in green) and beginning and ending 16 lines above the date and 16 lines below.
Notice the uppermost top left "H," the date and the lowermost "i" creates an isosceles triangle.
Is that random? I submit Mr. Gann predicted the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
The cornerstone. I call the 2010 Haiti earthquake a Harbinger, the hook, the 'cornerstone.' It was the first of the 45 'greatest' earthquake observations located in TTTTA. It was the 'hook' that made me research more of the observations. Mr. Gann's modus operandi.
If the first observation was a statement, the next 43 were a wasteland. Not really. When the first observation is so dramatic the next many are, well, a let down. The Noxious Ones would want us to
believe the only way they would accept that Mr. Gann predicted these 45 earthquakes would be an appendix page that is headed "I, WD Gann, predicted the following 45 earthquakes, 32 of which will occur after the publication of this book. Anything less that this is, simply, not acceptable to the Noxious Ones. Of course, there isn't an appendix. Mr. Gann did not believe in giving anything to anyone without their effort. So he encoded the 45 earthquake observations.
The cap stone. In a previous essay on Mr. Gann's modus operandi I identified a cornerstone, cap stone and the great flourish; a key stone which firms the entire structure presented. The cap stone, we know from Luo Clement (whom, in several essays, I've alleged was a pen name of WD Gann) is the last item of a series. Which brings me to question, how do we know what's last?
Moreover, how many of the greatest earthquakes are truly "great." In previous essays of this series, three criteria of "greatness," all appearing with convenient lists in Wikipedia, were presumed; deadliest (greatest fatalities), most destructive (a dollar evaluation) and most severe (moment of magnitude seismic measurement). Initially, 43 observations were located. Later, the 1960 Valdivia earthquake was found to have been omitted. It was on the Wikipedia list but was first thought to have been a duplication of one of the most deadly earthquakes in the MOT period.
The addition of 1960 Valdivia made 44 identified earthquakes; an awkward number. So, as any good accountant would do, I "reconciled" the initial Wikipedia lists of earthquakes to the 44 thus identified. The three lists were combined, sorted by date, duplicates were eliminated and there were 45 earthquakes remaining.
The 45th earthquakes is in blue in the first inserted table above; the 1995 Great Hanshin or Kobe earthquake and tsunami. As I'd already evaluated the first 44 observations I had yet to evaluate this one. And it was dramatic:
Not only can you spell Kobe in all acrostic letters, but it forms a right triangle when the date is considered a corner; looks rather Pythagorean? That's what I saw, no modification, no photo shop. That's what you will see if you download the MOT and do it yourself. Was I surprised when I saw Mr. Gann showing off by spelling "Kobe" as second time in the telestics? Hardly. And, all letters, both words were at or above the date line. Every letter.
About that right triangle. The vertical distance is 23 lines and the horizontal distance is 40 characters (not including punctuation and spaces). A right triangle comprised of side lengths of 23 and 39 and and angle of 90* gives you a hypotenuse length of 31.496 How many of the 45 observations occurred after the date of the Foreword of TTTTA and were, therefore, predictions of future earthquakes? 32. Play around with the parameters (24 or 23, 45 or 44), but its close.
And an area of the triangle close to the number of days in the solar year.
The first of 45 observations tested "HAITI" yielded an isosceles triangle and the last observation yields the above right triangle. Notably, the distances of travel in "Robert Gordon's Seven Days" yielded an isosceles triangle when measured from the latitude of NYC and a right triangle when measured from the equator.
Is that random? I submit Mr. Gann predicted the 1995 Great Hanshin or Kobe earthquake. Its the dramatic cap stone; it tells me everything in between, however weak the evidence of intent to identify each earthquake, was identified. But that's me.
The key stone. As identified in the "modus operandi" essay, we expect an indication, a key stone, that further pulls together every observation.
In the first two essays of this series (HERE and HERE), four findings of the word "Yellowstone" that were spelled with unordered but proximate letters. The missing letters were critical; o w o n. Four letters, three of which are unique and spell 'won,' ' own' or 'now.' Yellowstone and now. But that's not the point. As in modus operandi, a final flourish that, itself strongly indicates the exercise was not frivolous. No, Noxious Ones, Mr. Gann didn't state it in plain English. He stated it in a key stone.
Might the key stone to this exercise be the missing letters? When you evaluate the missing letters in that first table above under the heading "missing" you find that 28 earthquakes were not spelled perfectly. There are 37 letters missing (interesting number to pop up as discussed in modus operandi but I digress):
Those 37 letters can be used to spell two iterations of 'quick,' one of which is entirely in caps. Enticing but unproven, as yet, are the tempting words, 'volcano' and 'quake.'
In the context of the this series of essays, namely "Yellowstone," we find twice spelled and augmenting the message "now" found in the Yellowstone exercises....we find 'QUICK' and 'quick.'
Is Mr. Gann expressing a message of urgency meant for our times; the age of the 266th Pope in which we are to expect "remarkable events?"
I don't like the "Best Fit" method that I groped to find. Originally I thought the proximity of letters would prove the intent of every one of the 45 observations. I felt like Mr. Gann would spell, perfectly, the key word of every observation with the letters indisputably close to the date of the earthquake. That goes to show there's some of the Noxious One's in all of us. It isn't that easy. If we want to know, we must be expected to work to get Mr. Gann's hidden knowledge (presuming it's there).
I found myself expanding the "matrix" of lines that would be used to spell the target earthquake name. Too many observations required subjective manipulation for this former "Big 8," "Big 6," Big 4"auditor's liking. I want objectivity. I want objective proof that Mr. Gann identified 45 earthquakes in TTTTA, 32 of which were predictions of future events.
[Hmmm, 45 observations, half the angle of the right triangle. The angle that Mr. Gann said "divides time and space into equal parts. 45 divided by 32 is 1.40625, suspiciously close to the hypotenuse of the 1X1 square. Makes me wonder. But that's me.]
So, a new and "less worse" method to come; far less subjective. I've implemented it and, unlike how this series has emerged thus far, I know the method and results. In my opinion, the results are compelling. I will write the essay this weekend.
As always, do the work and make up your own mind. Learning as I'm learning, isn't in just the reading. Its the doing.
