*Napier's Constant*(aka "Euler's number", aka "

*") or 2.718.... is one of the most imminently important numbers alongside 0, 1, Pi and 'i.' Notably missing from WD Gann's "The Tunnel Thru the Air" are Phi and metrics of Platonic solids, sqrt(2), sqrt(3), sqrt(5) and many other notables. At least, missing for the naive and lazy reader. Let's find Phi, Pi and Napier's Constant or*

**e***.*

**e**I've found Pi and Phi popping up all over the place in TTTTA in unmistakable encoded methods that make it impossible to deny their author intended inclusion. For example, we find "De Pisa" for Leonardo of Pisa, aka Fibonacci spelled out in the very meaningful area of the "

*Tao to WAR*" device that spans the very meaningful page 69 which presents the Jonas, Book of Jonah citation:

Oh, we find Phi encoded many ways, not just the name of its originator; the

*structure of TTTTA approximating Phi^2*or the

*number of times artifacts*of my name (37 times) versus Mr. Gann's name (23 times) are found encoded in TTTTA. There are several essays in addition to the above linked that find Phi.

Phi, well, its a 3-letter word and the probability of finding it the many many times it is spelled in consecutive letters, is improbable. But how do you encode a two-letter word like 'Pi' and make it compelling for the reader to say "yeah, Mr. Gann intended that we find and take notice." A three- letter word is slightly improbable, but a two-letter word, not improbable at all. He found a way.

Dramatically compelling is the

*finding of Pi*encoded in TTTTA. We find the encoded word "Pi" spelled on cumulative descending line number 11566 (see brown highlighted):

Hardly compelling, a 'P' acrostic and 'i' telestic letter on the same line. But my birthdate (February 21 in red) caught my attention. Well, its not your birthday (probably), so what might be compelling?

Could it be considered coincidence that the cumulative ascending and descending cumulative line numbers and ascending and descending chapter numbers might be combined to give Pi to the fourth decimal? No, Mr. Gann intended that I find Pi.

So whereforaught thou Napier's Constant, reputed by Wikipedia as important as Pi? Phi was three letters, Pi was two letters; gosh, Napier's Constant or '

*' is one letter. Here's where I started looking, the line at which the cumulative descending line number divided by cumulative ascending line number equals the Napier's Constant or 2.718. Here is where we find that number:***e**
We find that line is 11216 / 4126 = 2.718 ( green highlight) and on that line Robert invents a device to intercept and decode enemy communication. Very notable. Perhaps an invention that uses Napier's Constant? I work with the acrostic and telestic letters but I can't find a spelling of "Napier" or "Euler" or "constant." Interesting but not compelling.

At a loss, I stewed on it and then it came. Let's find the same combination of cumulative lines but reverse the ascending and descending. Here it is, again, line numbers in green:

This time, we find Mr. Napier spelled in yellow and "_onstant" spelled in yellow. If I cheat a little, I can substitute the "K" or the "c" and I have "Napier's

*onstant."***K**
Still, I'd been more happy if I'd found the "C." Hmmm, "C" is the basis of Pythagoras diatonic scale. Hmmmmm, Pythagoras enumeration of letters would find that "C" is the number 3 and 3 is the rounding of

*e*; for those in Rio Liondo, 2.718 gets rounded UP to 3.*....*I'm happy.
*******

As I continue on in studying TTTTA, I'm sure I'll find

**e**confirmed by other devices just as I discovered many means for confirming Phi and Pi. But that's not an endpoint; simply discovering something. What do you do with the knowledge found during the quest? There are three implications in my fertile imagination.
First, in the extensive excerpt I made of page 301 above, Robert Gordon discovers the detailed plans of the enemy to mount a battle campaign beginning at the Gulf of Mexico, extending up the Mississippi to the Great Lakes, capturing from northwest Texas to southern Canada. That is what I consider the "second enemy campaign of the Great War in the Air." As I've alluded in other essays, this will be the symbolic image of Yellowstone seismic events (2017-18) that will occur after the conclusion of the first enemy campaign which is ongoing (latter calendar year 2016).

Second, Robert Gordon creates an invention which, in adding the clues, is based at least partially on the mathematic properties of

*. In the description of the invention, Mr. Gann weaves in the properties of light, cryptology, and wireless; all inventions of the last four decades. The backbone of the land and wireless telephony is fiber optics; yes, cellular depends on the nation and works fiber optics, not on wireless. Cellular calls are broadcast only from the nearest towers and are thereafter carried largely by light over fiber. And all of the messaging is carried via encryption; hence, the 'annilfier' forced the enemy forced to broadcast over analog, unencrypted, or barely encrypted, technology which was decipherable.***e**
And finally, an invention will be found that will allow a person to predict future events; seismic events, terrorist events... It won't be a "correlative" invention. It will be an analytic solution giving as much detail in the nature, location and participants in events as Mr. Gann has given in predicting other events that have occurred in the 89 years since publication of TTTTA. Events in such minute detail as one might have found my address and professional designation (not to mention my name) encoded in TTTTA. And Mr. Gann did just that as documented in the

*7th Prophecy*.
Napier's Constant, yeah, that's an important relic for my "attic." I'm sure I'll find use for it very soon.
