On page 9 of Marlinski's little book he writes the following:
"...if you really like to fold paper and can't resist how about the line that is up O on page 11 of his Magnetic Current booklet? If you read along the crease you made you will then see from the folded up words on page 12 and the corresponding words on page 13, what he used is quite old indeed."
In the hidden pages, Marlinski adds that "This O with a diagonal line drawn up it was also pointed out to you on page 10 of How to Read His Writings. And if you had folded up page 11 of EDL's Magnetic Current booklet along that line, you would have found the word rod.
Marlinski also says we should note that the O on page 11 of MC, is a mirror image of the BQY in the "AT WORK" photo in ABIEH.
So, my challenge to everyone, is can you find the word rod, resulting from the folded paper on page 11 that EDM referred to?
I feel that EDM put this in his book for a reason, and that finding the word "rod" may help in deciphering EDL.
I will add more later.
Yes I can, the mark is on the letter O, resembling a mirrored letter Q, I used a ruler in order to make a straight line first.
Along the line I can see on a diagonal, r o d
The g in light is cut by the diagonal line which forms an O, in r o d.
I did not pursue it further however
I have conflicts in the versions of MC (some versions have the marks, others do not)
It would really be beneficial if EDM did a Q and A session.
Thanks for pointing out the diagonal ROD that you found. I do like the idea of the crease cutting off the bottom of the "g" to form another letter. I do believe this is one method of cryptography/steganography possibly used by ED. If this is the ROD that EDM intended for us to find, I guess the next question is why did ED put it here and where does it lead?
If we create a bigger square by folding the edge of the page, we will find that one corner ends perfectly on the "a" of "alone", a word that EDM has referred to.
We know have two squares created by folding paper. However a third square can be found by folding the paper along the creases that we have already made.
Side length of large square: 11cm
Side length of medium square: 6.8cm
Side length of small square: 2.5cm
11/6.8 = 1.618 = The golden ratio
6.8/2.5 - 2.72 = e or Euler's number
That mirrored letter Q seems like a familiar symbol. Any idea of it's origin? It's interesting that EDM didn't touch on this out when discussing the diagonal fold.
Why is the ink missing on a diagonal line?
I remember page 13 the number three aligns with page 3 and two other letters.
My comment @dante
I can't answer that, it depends
Where did you acquire your version of Magnetic Current? I have old and new versions where the ink isn't missing.
I can only speculate as to why someone added those imperfections in the book, perhaps as an aid. For example, in my newest version of Magnetic Current the word individual on page 13, 26th line down, the top of the i and l are cut short. In the older versions they appear to be fine.
