    Webmaster:
    Line 11: 'Martin fahrt nach Gorlitz am Maltag, um 15 Uhr 30:'
    is, roughly:
    Martin Chemnitz drive to Gorlitz on the mark(ed)(?) day, at 15 o'clock 30

    Good old Seive of Eratosthenes, mentioned at the end of line 12, after the 1st star.


    Repubgirl hooks us up with some historical Gorlitz action...
    think the dude in Gorlitz is Jakob Boehme
    (1575-1624) German theosophist and mystic.  He
    received only an elementary education but was an
    assiduous student of the Bible and the works of
    the Swiss alchemist and physician Philippus
    Aureolus Paracelsus. Apprenticed to a shoemaker
    in his youth, Boehme later opened his own shop in
    Görlitz, Saxony.
    
    >From an early age he believed that he saw
    visions, and throughout his life he claimed to be
    divinely inspired. About 1612 he wrote Die
    Morgenröte im Aufgang (The Morning Redness
    Arising), in which he recorded his visions and
    expounded the attributes of God. The manuscript,
    which was published in 1634 under the title
    Aurore, was condemned as heretical by local
    ecclesiastical and civil authorities. Eventually
    Boehme was forced to seek asylum in Dresden,
    Saxony. There he was cleared of charges of heresy
    and allowed to return to Görlitz. His best-known
    treatises include Von den drei Prinzipien des
    Göttlichen Wesens (Of the Three Principles of the
    Nature of God, 1619) and Der Weg zu Christo (The
    Way to Christ, 1624). Although written in a style
    difficult to understand, his works were received
    with favor in a number of countries, particularly
    Germany, the Netherlands, and Britain. His
    English followers called themselves Behmenists.
    Many of them later were absorbed into the Quaker
    movement.
    
    In his fundamental doctrine, Boehme held that
    everything exists and is intelligible only
    through its opposite. Thus, he believed, evil is
    a necessary element in goodness, for without evil
    the will would become inert and progress would be
    impossible. God himself, according to Boehme,
    contains conflicting elements in his nature.
    Boehme's religious views have influenced modern
    Western thought in both philosophy and theology.

    WebMeister: As obscure as this all is, the major themes fit: Religion, madness, revelation, etc. Charlotenstrasse - We'll have to see.

    clue=the German word is not "Maltag", but "Maitag" = "May Day". "fahrt" should be "fährt" in correct German; also: Charlottenstraße is 
    spelled with "tt". No native German speaker at work here, it seems.
    - in 12): "Erlkönig" is a famous German poem.

    clue=Bryan, what does the UPC say?
    name=mogul
    
    B:You mean the bar code (which is decodeable, with a little trouble) or the greek above it?
    clue=The Charlottenstrasse address is now home to the Berlin branch of the Kreditanstalt fur
    Wiederaufbau .  The promotional bank for the German economy and a development bank for 
    developing countries.
    
    Can't find anything on "who and what used to reside" at the address not so long ago.  
    It was established in 1947 as the central "loan corporation" to finance reconstruction with 
    Marshall Plan funds after WWII.
    
    Seems to tie in well with many of our themes...

    name=mogul
    

    10/8/00 - yeah, right - like I have a ton of barcode references just lying around. This copy is too blurry to tell, and I cannot for the life of me find the original. I have a milk crate full of so much crap related to this mystery that finding anything has become a major undertaking. I'll keep digging.

    clue=i know you said to hold off, but....
    the 'key' right above "the wedding in cana" appears a few ads earlier, in 9/5/90, with the 8 and the 
    3 (of 1/3) highlighted. any suggestions? again, this is really old stuff, but the fact they sent it 
    to you with notation could, maybe, sort of.....
    

    1.10.01
    clue=This comes up again in the latest one--cana and the wedding.  They are maybe doing something unusually strange but in a
    setting that is ordinary.  The one in charge didn't know it was a miracle when he tasted the wine, it was just good.  If they
    don't do it too often they might slip past noticing especially if the event or events happen somewhere else.  The causes might
    not be clear when it comes time to audit or inspect or whatever would show normal, unexpected changes.  Seems to fit the one
    in September, different parts in different places.  Nobody or almost nobody would see all of it, again that fits the cana
    story.

    clue:  Helmholtz coil : The Helmholtz coil system concept, developed by a German
    physicist over a century ago, is a system that is normally used to generate magnetic
    field levels of specified volume and uniformity, allowing scientists and engineers to
    perform numerous experiments and test functions that require a known ambient magnetic
    field. Helmholtz field generation can be static, time-varying DC or AC, depending on
    applications.
    
     Applications range from cancelling the earth's magnetic field for certain
    experiments as well as
     generating magnetic fields for applications such as determining magnetic shielding
    effectiveness,
     determining the susceptibility of electronic equipment to magnetic fields, calibration
    of
     magnetometers and navigational equipment and for many bio-magnetic studies, just to
    name a few.
    
    If you do a search using 'Helmholtz coil' 'wave-guide' 'vacuum pump' 'electron
    propagator' and the various other technical terms in the text at the bottom, you^Òll
    come up with hits for various types of experimental devices, most, it seems, involving
    high-energy physics. It's almost as though they're  communicating the settings for a
    particular experiment. I don't think that's what they're doing, but that's one way
    to read it.
                            
    The 'N=8, r=1/3, D~1.8928" are associated with a type of Fractal called 'Koch's
    Curve.' I wrote a note about it on the March 21, 1990 page.

    clue:  Erlkönig. Weird poem by Goethe. A father and his son are riding through the forest. The son sees the "Erlking," who is 
    known for luring away children. The father tells him it's only the mists of the forest. The king begins to talk to the son, 
    telling him how wonderful life will be with him. The son tells the father, who tells the son he's imagining things; it's only 
    the wind whispering through the trees. The king tells the son that if he won't come voluntarily, he'll force him, and grabs 
    for the son. The father clutches his son to his side, and rides wildly home. When he arrives, the son is dead.
    
    The quoted line is the son asking the father if he sees the king.

    clue:  Found it--the nuclear device with the Wedding in Cana.  It has some connection with a project they are doing, changing
    attributes or physical properties. (That device can be used in nuclear testing.)  I think this is a veiled reference to 
    "non-local effects" which totally horrified Einstein but is part and parcel of quantum physics.

    The greek letters translate to "Eutuchos" and refer to a boy who was restored to life by the apostle Paul in ACTS 20:7-12.
    

    sjwk: 09.22.2003

    More random off-the-wall waffle: From the page already listed:The earliest records in the Landesarchiv , the city archives of Berlin, are from 1816, although the building exists since 1780. The site, originally two, Französstraße 25/26 and Charlottenstraße 50, was transformed into one building. Plumbing was installed in 1888. Frau Mina Heymann was the owner. I also found a reference to an obituary for a Mina Heymann in Sept 1924 in St Louis here.

    It also looks as though that building is no longer a bank and is being rebuilt as apartments.


    gorosapiens 10.26.2004
    Eutuchos does not only  refer to a boy who was restored to life by the apostle Paul in ACTS 20:7-12. But it
    also means Fortunately or luckily in Greek ...
    

    Lefteris 04.04.2007
    	Eftihos (Eftichos) does not mean fortunately or luckily in Greek. The problem with the world in the ad, is that it is
    capitalized, so it is not easy for those who do not know ancient Greek to realize the difference. The spelling of "fortunately" in
    Greek is different (the "o" is different). 
    
    The word "Eftichos" means "the fortunate one" but is not used in many occasions in the ancient literature. I agree it  refers "to
    the boy who was restored to life by the apostle Paul in ACTS 20:7-12", like Joe23 wrote.
    
    The important part of these message, from the Greek language point of view, is the small circle saying "iste, isate, isasi". These
    are different past tenses of the verb "oida" (pronounced "e;da"), which in ancient Greek means "to know".
    
    What is intriguing is that in the New Testimony, there are small but important grammar errors, which not many people know of (too
    few I suppose). In this particular point in the New Testimony, Christ in His last moments on the cross asks His Father to forgive
    the ones who crusified Him, because they did not know what they were doing ("ou gar oidasi ti piousi").
    
    This sentence is used even today, as it is one of the most used ancient phrases in modern Greek. However it is not correctly
    spelled. Instead of "oidasi" the right world should be "isasi", which is the correct past continuous for the verb. 
    
    I believe that the author of the message, wrote the 3 past tenses to show this error, which because it was made in the New
    Testimony, made everybody think it was the correct tense.
    
    This shows someone with deep knowledge in ancient Greek, as none who studies only the Bible would know or mention that. However, at
    the same moment he/she is not Greek, as in past ads he made a clear spelling mistake, not even kids do. I believe he studied
    ancient Greek but from his handwriting I think he copies the words letter to letter.

    "2)" caught my eye.
    
    The first term, "Gleichschaltung," may be familiar to you from contemporary history, specifically Nazis. Imposing upon,
    unifying, typically cultural and social institutions in an authoritarian regime. 
    
    After the colon is a synthetic schistosomicide. (It may have other uses, but that's what the databases turn up, particularly an
    article from J. Med. Chem in 1964.) Schistosomiasis comes from contact with water, usually immersion, where a certain fresh
    water snail lives. 
    
    What the hell does this mean? Schistosomiasis would be only one of many worries if you were planning to establish a commune in
    some equatorial region. Perhaps "Gleichschaltung" means that such incoveniences will be conquered with technology.
    
    Also, just occurred to me that "schistosome" literally means "divided body," so a "schistosomicide" would be,
    literally, a schism-eliminator, which would fit in with the religious-war angle.
