You bitch at me and I will slaughter you all.

Just kidding, but honestly, here me out on this.

After reviewing that new post, about the Maynard imposter on 10,000-days.com, I realized something. He mentions the word Myriad, now I don't know if and of you realized this, but that means Ten Thousand in Archaic. (Dcitionary.com: link-http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=myriad)

Now, do you guys remember this thing? - - - - -

T-E-N T-H-O-U-S-A-N-D fits, and after thinking about it, maybe 10,000 Days is not really the true title, at least, not in that simple form. Maybe the title is actually "Myriad Days", or Myriad at that. Or, perhaps "Myriad Days" even fits in that group of symbols. M-Y-R-I-A-D-(omit space to make fit)D-A-Y-S

Who knows?

"myriad days" sounds worse than "10,000 days".

This has been brought up before. Its entirely possible... I think it'd suck, but it could happen.

that was exactly what I was trying to get across to people on this board 2 minutes ago, but those who read my post, I suppose can't read more than a few words at the time...

anyways, I also think that's pretty suspicious. and I also think, that maybe, just maybe, the new album will have MYRIAD in its title...

What had happened is that, after the message indicator spelled out ********, the planchette then moved very quickly across the board and actually bumped into the leg of one of the sitters. This was Srr. (technikrym omitted). What makes this particularly remarkable (in light of this new track listing) is that the Soror's first initial is M.

It seems based on past events (I know we continue living in the past)... but Tool has been far more creative with title names. Myriad is actually a fairly common word...that's not to say they would never use such a word, but as an album title? I don't know. If they were to use it, they may manipulate it into something, like with aenima and lateralus. Just my guess.

I like the prefix Myria... it sounds nifty. Something that means 'day' on the end of that would make an interesting title, methinks.

Hey, this is kind of interesting:

The Jews reckoned the day from sunset to sunset (Lev. 23:32). It was originally
divided into three parts (Ps. 55:17). "The heat of the day" (1 Sam. 11:11; Neh.
7:3) was at our nine o'clock, and "the cool of the day" just before sunset (Gen.
3:8). Before the Captivity the Jews divided the night into three watches, (1)
from sunset to midnight (Lam. 2:19); (2) from midnight till the cock-crowing
(Judg. 7:19); and (3) from the cock-crowing till sunrise (Ex. 14:24). In the
New Testament the division of the Greeks and Romans into four watches was
adopted (Mark 13:35). (See WATCHES.) The division of the day by hours is
first mentioned in Dan. 3:6, 15; 4:19; 5:5. This mode of reckoning was borrowed
from the Chaldeans. The reckoning of twelve hours was from sunrise to sunset,
and accordingly the hours were of variable length (John 11:9). The word "day"
sometimes signifies an indefinite time (Gen. 2:4; Isa. 22:5; Heb. 3:8, etc.).
In Job 3:1 it denotes a birthday, and in Isa. 2:12, Acts 17:31, and 2 Tim.
1:18, the great day of final judgment.

Who really thinks that was actually Maynard which he claimed to be? I don't, Maynard wouldn't come preach on some random Tool forum.. he's better than that, isn't he?

I do prefer Myradia to 10,000 Days. But if that's not Maynard (which it's not cmon) then it's just some random guy coming up with some pretty creative ideas which are just that, creative, until the band finally uncovers our eyes...

Personally, I think Myriad Days is a little more creative sounding than 10,000 Days, and even though I don't mind 10,000 Days, Myriad Days sounds a little more "Toolish." I wouldn't be suprised if Myriad is the name of the album though. I think it's pretty cool.

Also, the more and more I look at them, those tracks are pretty Toolish, almost reminiscent of Aenima.

TOOL:
BACK TO THE DRY-ERASE MESSAGE BOARD

Having returned from their holiday cheer to the dystopia that is much of Hollywood, at precisely 12:06 (when Danny arrived) on Thursday, January 6th, 2005 e.v., the members of TOOL gathered at the rehearsal space to resume writing and arranging the music for their next record. Although I'm not going to pay them a visit until tomorrow (after all, they're probably a little rusty - and there's nothing worse than a Daedalian-complex train wreck), while gazing into Danny's psychomantium (after fixing a faulty float connected with its make-shift pump), I was able to discern in its dark surface certain new additions to the arsenal designed to pierce the aethyrs.

Daedalian reference.. they knew what the Hell they were doing...

Within that SAME newsletter!

"Don't panic" I told myself, Maynard doesn't have internet access or get good cell reception in that submarine-craft of his on the ocean sea-bed, so he probably doesn't even know about the blurb. Still we've got to keep this thing quiet - that is if you want the new Tool record to proceed according to schedule. Even you readers... yes YOU, Tool Collective members with your damn message board and chats (which, fortunately, are probably down), keep your lips sealed. In fact, if you have to discus this with your TA friends, it might be prudent to discreetly tap their shoes with yours using Morse code. Just tap out something like 34D243334D117 and they'll know exactly what you're talking about.

I've always liked Aldaraia, honestly.

Somewhere in the back of my mind, I still hope its real, to be honest.

I third this. Out of all the tracklistings/titles that have surfaced, Aldaraia has been my favorite one. (Although at this point, I'll go for anything that's not "10,000 Days")

TOOL:
BACK TO THE DRY-ERASE MESSAGE BOARD

Having returned from their holiday cheer to the dystopia that is much of Hollywood, at precisely 12:06 (when Danny arrived) on Thursday, January 6th, 2005 e.v., the members of TOOL gathered at the rehearsal space to resume writing and arranging the music for their next record. Although I'm not going to pay them a visit until tomorrow (after all, they're probably a little rusty - and there's nothing worse than a Daedalian-complex train wreck), while gazing into Danny's psychomantium (after fixing a faulty float connected with its make-shift pump), I was able to discern in its dark surface certain new additions to the arsenal designed to pierce the aethyrs.

"Don't panic" I told myself, Maynard doesn't have internet access or get good cell reception in that submarine-craft of his on the ocean sea-bed, so he probably doesn't even know about the blurb. Still we've got to keep this thing quiet - that is if you want the new Tool record to proceed according to schedule. Even you readers... yes YOU, Tool Collective members with your damn message board and chats (which, fortunately, are probably down), keep your lips sealed. In fact, if you have to discus this with your TA friends, it might be prudent to discreetly tap their shoes with yours using Morse code. Just tap out something like 34D243334D117 and they'll know exactly what you're talking about.

Before what is now Indonesia was colonized by the Dutch East India Company, Jambi was the site of a well-established, powerful Srivijayan kingdom that engaged in trade throughout the Strait of Malacca and beyond. It succeeded Palembang to the south, which was a frequent military and economic rival, as the later capital of the ancient kingdom. The move to Jambi was partly induced by the historic 1025 raid by pirates from the Chola region of southern India that destroyed much of Palembang.

In the early decades of the Dutch presence in the region, when the future colonizers were just one of several groups of traders competing with Brits, Chinese, Arabs, and Malays, the Jambi sultanate profitably traded pepper with the Dutch. This relationship declined by about 1770, and the sultanate had little contact with the Dutch for about sixty years.

In 1833, minor conflicts with the Dutch, who were well established in Palembang, meant the Dutch increasingly felt the need to control the actions of Jambi. They coerced Sultan Facharudin to agree to greater Dutch presence in the region and control over trade, although the sultanate remained nominally independent. In 1858 the Dutch, apparently concerned over the risk of competition for control from other foreign powers, invaded Jambi with a force from Batavia. They met little resistance, and Sultan Taha fled to the upriver, inland regions of Jambi. The Dutch installed a puppet ruler, Nazarudin, in the lower region, which included the capital city. For the next forty years Taha maintained the upriver kingdom, and slowly reextended his influence over the lower regions through political agreements and marriage connections. In 1904, however, the Dutch were stronger and, as a part of a larger campaign to consolidate control over the entire archipelago, soldiers finally managed to capture and kill Taha, and in 1906, the entire area was brought under direct colonial management.

It seems some of you have used the past and found very little. But what else was to be expected?

The visual mixture has been sending a pleasing scent through the house for awhile now - but why?

You're concerned with identity. But by doing so, you are stabbing the ally while he is running.

There may be pretenders abound but some of you are starting to figure it out. Rewarded will be those who are.

Take your hands, dig deeper.

You have all heard the message thus far but it's sad to see that few have listened.

I'll help you, but only if there's tragedy afoot.

Speculate - comprehend - visualies - communicate - love.

Start here.

POSTER:gullibly writes ton the he "webdesignvermont.com" owned 10,000 days board

so youre saying that much of what has been put forth from the band is legit? we all want the truth, and we are all looking for it, but it is right in our face?

ADAM IM-POSTER REPLIES:

I see your skepticism and I feel your anger.

The message is right there... it's been there all along... and it is in play right now.

The truth is right in front of you. It has been rediscovered and fits. Afterall, you will notice a thematic thread through the last two Tool albums. Were there really people running around in there? Were they alone?

Or was it that one piece described the division and second provided the reconciliation?

What is there left?

Or is life imitating art?

Besides... theatricality has always been a part of the message and it would be foolish to assume that it stops when you've ejected your disc from the player.

Can you hear me?

Further more, who is to say who is a character? But we urge you to listen to the albums again... take note of subjects... follow the flowing nature of the lyrics... maybe there is a hidden story underneath it all that begs for a conclusion, but is not possible unless YOU are involved.

Speculate

comprehend

visualize

communicate

love

ONE more thing I have noticed...

Throughout ALL of the 2005 Newletters, there are VERY sporadic numbers and letters underlined...

Just browse through them and look for yourself...

When I try and paste it here the underlines disappear, so you'll have to see this on your own. I'll give you some links in a sec.



Just a quick thought......those symbols that appear in most of the photos in the newsletters....any significance?

enema -> anima -> AEnima (cleansing of soul)
lateral/lattitude -> animus -> Lateralus (finding a grounding, realizing map != territory)
come on people it's clearly 10000 Days -> Myriad Diem -> Myriadiem -> Myriadian


from links i posted earlier:

Meridian->
On the Earth, a meridian is an imaginary north-south line between the North Pole and the South Pole that connects all locations with a given longitude. The position on the meridian is given by the latitude. Each is perpendicular to all circles of latitude at the intersection points. Each is also the same size and is half of a great circle on the Earth's surface.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meridian_%28geography%29

Meridian->
The concept of meridians (Chinese: "jing-luo"经络) arises from the techniques and doctrines of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture and acupressure. According to these practices, the body's vital energy, "qi", circulates through the body along specific interconnected channels called meridians. Disruptions of the body's energy flow (such as stagnations, blockages and redirection) are thought to cause emotional and physical illness. To release those disruptions, specific points on the meridians called acupoints, or tsubo in the Japanese practice, are stimulated via needles, pressure or other means.

This is slightly off subject, but I don't personally believe it's worth a new thread, and this seems to be the currently happening place for trying to decipher all this "cryptic" stuff so...

I was reading the Feb. newsletter again to see if I could find anything I had missed when I realized that I never really found out what Daedalous meant. So I looked it up and found out that Daedalous was the one who invented the wings so he and Icarus could fly out of the maze in Crete. Interestingly enough, the piece that Blair was referring to seems to be what is "titled": Wings for Marie (Pt 1) and 10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2).

Someone may have already posted this. I try to keep up with what's being said but it's hard when there are so many posts. I just thought that it was interesting to find yet another Greek connection. Especially considering this connection is found in reference to the "title" track.

So, does this means L.K is Wings for Marie and was split into two songs? Ew

But this also means there's another song with initials of L.K in Lost Keys. I still find this weird.

Unless, "daedalous piece" is not what he refered to as L.K in other newsletters before this. No one has been able to confirm this or not. Which would make more sense that it's not Wings for Marie, since he said we would get the lengthy song in all it's glory

He's referred to it as far back as June or July in newsletters. But I can't remember if he called it daedalous piece or not, and I've looked at them again but couldn't find anything. I may have missed it though. I didn't exactly read everything. I skimmed it a bit.

don't mean to flame guys, but you guys are throwing in greek, latin, finnish and everything else you could google or find in dictionary.com, but DON'T KNOW WHERE INDONESIA IS?

This might help if you're trying to work on this language angle: Indo-European is largest family of languages, and all languages and dialects in the family are genetically related to one another.

What suprises me is that you guys didn't even bother googling "Indonesia" and so readily admitted "I don't know where Indonesia is." I don't hear people talking "I don't know what language Finnish is." Talking about digging. I guess that the digging never passed even Venice. Well keep digging, folks...

yeah, I was hoping for it to be just one song but not sure which it is though. It may also connect with Rosetta Stoned if it's Lost Keys as well so either way it may not matter.

on a side note....
i had a personal theory once.. of how in the hell all of the pyramid structures from all over the world are somehow connected.
i created a globe of earth in a 3d software package i use, and created a pyramid in side it with the peaks emerging exactly along the angles that the egyptian great pyramid is. where would the other "corners" emerge i thought?
I rotated the inner pyramid until peaks lined up with the pyramids in mexico and china.
i added another inverted pyramid at exactly 180 to the first.
one peak ended up in antartica.
the others?... one in the atlantic ocean the others in random? places in the pacific.

After reviewing that new post, about the Maynard imposter on 10,000-days.com, I realized something. He mentions the word Myriad, now I don't know if and of you realized this, but that means Ten Thousand in Archaic. (Dcitionary.com: link-http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=myriad)

Now, do you guys remember this thing? - - - - -

T-E-N T-H-O-U-S-A-N-D fits, and after thinking about it, maybe 10,000 Days is not really the true title, at least, not in that simple form. Maybe the title is actually "Myriad Days", or Myriad at that. Or, perhaps "Myriad Days" even fits in that group of symbols. M-Y-R-I-A-D-(omit space to make fit)D-A-Y-S

o well. i dont think pleasing a woman sexually has any thing to do with whether someone can find meaning in something that you do not.
but if YOU do, then my opinion of that is that you should review your priorities in life, separate yourself from the people in your life that support that kind of thinking.

sharing an exhillerating experience of making the most amazingly beautiful woman in all aspects of the word .. orgasm 27 times in a row is a great thing.
I think it takes some patience and introspection to accomplish, and that takes time and energy to gain. Time wasted putting people down on a message board when they're busy using their minds to fiddle with what they think is a carefully designed riddle.

if its not... great for you.. AND US ... we had fun doing it .. made friends.. and learned alot of cool shit.

aenima exploring the feminine / realizing emotional pain from within /
:::jimmy's mom / hooker / aenima -(anima the feminine side of the psyche) mom please wash it all away / mother earth cleansing itself ::::

lateralus // the YOU, the two sides combined..(recall the combining him/her at the end of the Schism video) and the necessary communication involved (whether between your 2 sides or with another you share a relationship with)

all i can imagine the next album to be centered around, would be , after all the fundamental steps in "awakening and healing" that the past albums have explored.. the bases have pretty much been covered... what is next...

when you have realized your pain ... confronted it .. entered it... and come out the other side..


the moon tells you a secret. (refer to the threads on Who Built The Moon )

theres meaning to our design.

we've awakened through the past album's journeys... once you're awake and aware.. OUT OF YOUR BLIND AND CYNICAL HOLE,

what do you do

you live .. you assist .. you connect. we're all connected. all of one mind.
(experiencing itself subjectively mind you)


time to" imagine the unconceivable."

"Reflection" left us off in a cliffhanger ...

thats what i'd conclude this next album is about.
-- BEING. -- in the most magnificent sense of the word.

egoes are crucified - we explore our collective unconcious
uninhibitedly and unafraid.

together...creating something better than what we currently experience in this world.
DAILY.

the next album is going to be about working together through connecting and exploring space ... INNER AND OUTER....

together.


imagination sets the only limits.

My roommate just told me that Syrianna is a documentary movie about America "stealing" oil from the middle east..... particularly iraq... Won a grammy.

I wonder if that is just coincidence to this MJK charcter?

Yeah it does.

I am now officially convinced that 10,000 Days is a hoax.

Dude you've been convinced for days. If you want to believe it's a hoax you're going to find everything you can that "confirms" your belief and you're going to ignore everything that doesn't. No offense, because I really find your thoughts interesting, but you're completely disregarding the fact that your obvious desire for the album to NOT be named 10,000 Days is clearly affecting your judgment for all this "evidence".

Selective perception my friend--you're definitely a victim of it.

I only said it looked Icelandic, not that it was. We need someone who knows whatever language that is... However, if it is, then its far more than just a coincidence. FAR more.

Of course, that newsletter was from over a year ago... Dec '04. I don't think they had named it yet.
although what is to say that they didnt know the topic more than a year ago?

It's finnish. I figured out by realizing that the language that has "myradia" in it usually have domain names ending in .fi which is for finland.

I'm still boggled as to why some of you think a Tool album cant/shouldn't have normal english words in its title? "Myriad Diem" doesn't sound any better than 10,000 Days. In fact, it sounds kind of stupid because it's 2 different languages and not even grammatically correct.

We're just having some fun...we're not saying that IS the title...but we think based on some research done mostly by systolic that the title will be based around "myriad" somehow..

Gee, who would have thought that a thread in the new album section would have been reduced to pointless flaming and questions that have already been answered numerous times? Amazing...

A lot of you obviously haven't read through this thread... Systolic, dracomordag and I all found some interesting stuff. Who cares if its real or not? It was fun...

For all of you who keep saying "OMG the new album IS going to be 10,000 Days, and it IS going to be released on May 2nd", first of all, shut the fuck up. Nobody cares what you think if you're going to be pompous about it. Second, Myriadiem, Myriad Days, Myriadia, and Myriadie all translate exactly into 10,000 Days, so any of them could be the title and it'd still be the same thing Blair told us.

Stfu and let us have our fun. Its not hurting you.

For those of you who don't know, Myriad is also a direct translation of "Lateralus II".

+1 to Ocelot.

I participated in this thread last night because I was bored, slightly high, and it was a fun way to pass the time. So who's the bigger loser? The one who enjoys spending his time doing something possibly constructive or the one who spends his time ridiculing the other?

I personally don't know or care what they call the album. However, I find it entertaining to dig for clues. It's like solving a puzzle. It's a mental challenge.

Anyway, many thanks to those who decided to come in this thread to inform us that the title is "10,000 Days" and that we are simply wasting our time. You have wisdom beyond your years. I think I speak for all who participated in this thread by saying that we are truly enlightened by your presence. After all, it is obvious that we are, indeed, the losers here. What would we have ever done without you (besides have a nice, entertaining, possibly informative, and not-so-damn-cluttered thread)???

At ease, Ocelot.

My apologies.

Edit: "Myriad" isn't a terrible title. "Meriadian" and the rest of them are. Interesting theory. My two cents: "Myriad" is a lttle too reminiscent of "Lateralus". Fixed.

enema -> anima -> AEnima (cleansing of soul)
lateral/lattitude -> animus -> Lateralus (finding a grounding, realizing map != territory)
come on people it's clearly 10000 Days -> Myriad Diem -> Myriadiem -> Myriadian


from links i posted earlier:

Meridian->
On the Earth, a meridian is an imaginary north-south line between the North Pole and the South Pole that connects all locations with a given longitude. The position on the meridian is given by the latitude. Each is perpendicular to all circles of latitude at the intersection points. Each is also the same size and is half of a great circle on the Earth's surface.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meridian_%28geography%29

Meridian->
The concept of meridians (Chinese: "jing-luo"经络) arises from the techniques and doctrines of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture and acupressure. According to these practices, the body's vital energy, "qi", circulates through the body along specific interconnected channels called meridians. Disruptions of the body's energy flow (such as stagnations, blockages and redirection) are thought to cause emotional and physical illness. To release those disruptions, specific points on the meridians called acupoints, or tsubo in the Japanese practice, are stimulated via needles, pressure or other means.

its not lateral, lattitude and animus. it's lateralis and animus (lateralis - a muscle in your leg, without which you could not stand/walk) everything else sounds good.

Myriad actually means Ten Thousand Days in Archaic. If it was Myriad Days, that would make it Ten Thousand Days Days.

No.

Also, if you take the letters from the circles from that weird line thing, you get Myrada. Which is also Myriad.

This has been brought up before. Its entirely possible... I think it'd suck, but it could happen.

Well, on Dictionary.com it just said "Archaic- Ten Thousand", not necessarily "Archaic- Ten Thousand Days." So yea.

A little off topic, but I just wanted to clear something up.

Your Vastus lateralis is a muscle in your leg. Your Rectus capitis lateralis is a muscle in your cranium. I believe the band has said that the album title means upper thinking or lateral thinking. Most likely lateral thinking as this is an actual concept. It has to do with problem solving in abstract ways. Basically, thinking outside the box. To me, that's more with what the album title has to do with.

Rough translation from Latin and Greek "Hidden beneath the light of Paris there is hellfire"

I always thought this was the meaning of Lateralus as a reference to the Paris meridian line, Renne Chateaux and such. Has this been proven wrong?
