...who is mentioned at the bottom of the page.
Some info...
Anusvara:       .n / M (dot on top of previous consonant/vowel)
Avagraha:       .a    (`S' like symbol basically to replace a after o)
Ardhachandra:   .c    (for vowel sound as in english words `cat' or `talk')
Chandra-Bindu:  .N    (chandra-bindu on top of previous letter)
Halant:         .h    (to get half-form of the consonant - no vowel - virama)
Visarga:        H     (visarga - looks like a colon character)
taken from here.

A sanskrit consonant.

More sanskrit. "middle of chest" as far as I can tell but I fear multiple meanings. here

As for all the:

Gutteral, unaspirated
Gutteral, aspirated
Palatal, unaspirated
Palatal, aspirated
Cerebral, unaspirated
Cerebral, aspirated has to do with linguistics - these forms of descriptions are used to define the tiny parts of speech by indicating where the part is spoken (Gutteral = ???, palatal = on the palate, etc) and how the airflow moves through the mouth. So, I think this is describing a language, but which one, I am unclear.

(I knew that gen. ed. freshman linguistics class would come in handy...)

Webmaster: SANSKRIT: Symbols top and bottom of the lefthand center 3 stars = Sanskrit. Also far righthand of page. Need to find sanskrit resource.

Webmaster: JPEPPER's Hebrew help..
I have never seen that word, and it wasnt in the dictionary. sorry. 
it might be an acronym of some biblical thing i dont know.

From carlos
the greek quote for Plato is from Republic 1.352d and
translates as "for it is no ordinary matter that we are discussing,
but the right conduct of life".

clue:  Hey, I've seen that picture before and just remembered where.  It 
is off an old Federal Reserve note or silver certificate (can't remember 
which) but the point is that it is money which ties in with at least half 
the other ads. Also (and as I write this, I'm trying to visualize the page 
in the reference in my memory) the scene is aboard the Mayflower just 
before they sailed from Plymouth for what was to become part of 
Massachusetts, which also fits like a glove.  

near a terminal: 09.24.01
clue:  Notice the reference to reversing the flow of time.  Almost everybody who works on these clues is struck over and over 
by how closely interconnected they all are.  For example, I remember from school that the Pilgrims left first England and then 
Holland because they wanted to reverse the flow of history and history is time recorded.  The  Pilgrims wanted a restoration 
of the early church without all the crap that Rome had added over the centuries.  They were consciously trying to reverse the 
flow of time in a practical way, by emigrating to the new world.

Bob 09.27.01
Near a terminal's point of 09/24/01 is extremely well taken because  the painting on the $10,000 bill
is set in Holland.

Jessica: 07.03.02
Another thing to note about the $10,000 bill.  There are only two bills that do not have dead presidents on them.  The
$100 bill with Benjamin Franklin, and the $10,000 with Salmon P. Chase.  Salmon Chase was born in 1808 in New Hampshire. His
family could trace its American origins to the early years of Massachusetts settlement in the seventeenth century. The eighth of
eleven children of a tavernkeeper and local officeholder, Chase recei ved his early education in a local district school and a
private institution. 

When Chase was nine years old, his father died, and the youth was placed under the care of an uncle, who was the Protestant
Episcopal bishop of Ohio. Receiving secular and religious training in Ohio, he enrolled at Cincinnati College where his uncle w
as president. He remained there only a short time before entering Dartmouth College, from which he was graduated in 1826. Chase
moved to Washington, D.C., where he conducted a school and studied law under the guidance of the prominent politician, William
Wirt. He was admitted to the bar in 1829...more here:

The sansrit above the hebrew: "prathama" means "first".
Below: "dvitiya" means "second".  See here:
The sanskrit to the right seems to transcribe to "ayuyam" but I can't find a translation, sorry.  Will keep working on it.

clue: Whoooooooo....
"Novus annus adiit, in quo Christus prodiit."
Christmas hymn, See : (

"Novus annus adiit
The new year approaches
in which Christ appears
from the virgin throne.
In this miraculous birth
both human and divine
are joined together.
The new year today
teaches us to begin
our glad rejoicing;
happy is the beginning
of which praise
is the object and end.
Worthy is the remembrance
of which praises
are the object and end;
worthy is the celebration
which we know to abound
with so many blessings.
Translation: Susan Hellauer

they're assigning parts to the players.
Now, I'm not a musicologist, so I don't know if this is just standard notation or not.
They could be taking the designated text of the hymn and running it through their assigned algorithm to generate the values / message.

clue: "The classical equations of motion for particles which move in a conservative potential are symmetrical if the direction of time propegation is reversed" -- Walter Greiner und Bendt Muller, Theoretische Physic, Band 5 (1992)

o Theoretische Physic, Band 5 (1992) = Theoretical Physics, volume 5
o Volume 5 - Gauge Theory of Weak Interactions

o interpertation : for particles moving in a conservative field, (the direction of) time is irrelevant
o def: conservative force -
o some info on what gauge theory is ;

I suspect that this also ties in with the diagram on the right.

Unfortunately, being a brain in a bottle with an internet connection, I haven't been able to track that one down. Hit the stacks, Hance.

This isn't directly relevant to the 12/4/96 page, but we've seen references to chirality on other pages.

def : Chirality

The triangular diagram on the right is a diagram of the Baryons charting strangeness vs isospin. (See:

This disagram also appears on

almansur - 10.27.2004
The text seems to be applying Sanskrit letters to the various players, much as Hebrew letters or
approximations of Phi were assigned in earlier messages. Any dictonary should be able to tell you what letters
correspond to "gutteral, aspirated" -- I'll post myself when I find some time. Anusvara is a special letter
corresponding to a "mng" sound. Vriddhi is a type of Sanskrit compound - Sanskrit has very elaborate rules for
forming and nterpreting compounds, and this more than anything is what makes it so hard to learn, in my opinion.
Sandhi are the rules governing how two letters should be combined when they occur next to each other -- they often
get combined into a diferent character. The Sandhi rules are uite elaborate as well.

What this has to do with anything is beyond me -- and they told me studying Sanskrit was a waste of time!

The Sanskrit to the right is ayutam - 'ten thousand'

Jessica Augustsson 08.15.2006
Juls, thanks!  I remember how long I spent finding those sanskrit words!

So, now, armed with First, Second, and 10,000, what've we got?

Heh...still not much.  :

Lenin scribbled "history of thought = history of language??" in an annotation to 
Hegel's Logic. He also doodled a square encircled by it. Note that this is a 
different claim than the leimotiv attributes to him.
