  1. I’ve just a few brief inquiries this time around, as I’ve been unable to spot anything else of a notable value, as of late. 1.) If this is not really a book, would it then be a boobook, which is another name for an owl? 2.) “Like Atlas, you bear it on your shoulders.” – Is this a reference to the Atlas Obscura? 3.) “They failed to see the real sign while looking through the obvious.” – Is the real sign, which they failed to see, a telltale sign looking through the tell-all talebearer’s tale?

  2. Is there a connection between the beater on the title page and the drum from page 1?

  3. @vewatkin Is there any clue as to why the jar, which is gone on the book’s cover, reappears during the “ Prologue “ ? Or is there some kind of an esoteric argot involved here as well? B

    • The cover image of the entrance differs from the prologue in a number of ways which I suspect are design choices.

  4. “They failed to see the real sign, while looking through the obvious.” – I think this is more of a statement and less of a dilemma. Because I’m assuming that the real “ sign “ could quite possibly be phonetic in nature. And a phonetic sign is more likely to be heard from listening to the “ symbology “ involved, than it is to be seen by looking through the obvious. B

    • Or it could be an ethereal sign of an unseen character, while looking through the fourth wall. Might have something to do with chirality, from a phonetic introspective.

  5. Does the herring on the Book’s cover and the extended width above the entrance to the Prologue, relate to any connections between that of the Herring King and Sir Francis Bacon?

    • Can elaborate on this connection? Bacon’s use of the king herring image seems interesting, though the sources I found upon a brief googling included low res pictures and somewhat unclear explication of the subject.

  6. @vewatkin – Well, the room that I’m talking about (according to the Gide) , is the one without a ceiling or a floor. B

    • Does it contain a Y or a psi? It’s not clear what you’re talking about. The only room referred to as having no floor is 33, but it doesn’t seem to have any clear Y or psi in it, and also doesn’t talk about looking through the obvious.

    • @vewatkin – I discovered the symbol for the “ psi “ on the far right side of your website’s title page. Would you mind clueing me in as to why the word “ faith “ is written upside down to the right of the hering, on the book’s cover? B

    • I don’t see the “faith” where you describe. I’m not sure what you’re talking about with the psi, neither what website you mean nor why a hidden symbol on that website provides a solution to the book.

  7. Would the sign while looking through the obvious, be the “ Y “ looking sign, while looking through a two way mirror? Got the idea from reading about “Mise en abyme” which is derived from heraldry and translates to as being “placed into abyss”.

  8. @vewatkin My bad, bro. If my arbitrational requitals seem to be a moot and forlorn topic, IAM sorry. I just thought that Jupiter Optimus Maximus had something to do with the woodrow that can be found in room 45, as the mirrored initials J.O.M. when reversed spell out rOW. I guess Joopidoor, doesn’t have any meaning either, right? B

  9. @avert -“My crown, my pain, the fire in my eyes.” Is “my crown” (MAZE) a reference to the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus, which is said to have had a wooden based structure? Does “my pain” allude to the structure that turns into petrified stone? Could “the fire in my eyes” correlate to the light that’s filtering in through the windows from the clerestory? B

    • Are there any relevant similarities between the line you’re quoting and the thing you’re asking whether it’s in reference to?

  10. If “my body is a temple” as the old adage goes, then would the MAZE be the body of the (minotaur) guide? Also, is the entrance (cover) supposed to be another version of the pi symbol which has a tittle (dot) above the door in the eye socket? This variant pi symbol looks like a cross between an inverted “ j “ (umbrella), and the letter “ t “, with a tittle (dot) above it. B

  11. Is the books cover in reference to the defined meaning from the Tower of Babel? My idea behind this inquiry came from the the word “ by “ and the face of a bull which I have been able to discern more clearly by rotating the book 90 degrees in a clockwise direction. And is the “I AM” from room 45, have anything to do with the latin translation of the word “obvious” which is Obviam? B
