first of all, hi to everybody!!


i think i might have something interesting for you seekers! :D


i stumbled over this while thinking about how the stereoscopic pics and the making of the "hidden track" worked out. additional, there was this odd similarity in the curvature of dannys ghost and the white bird on the back of the falcon on justins pic.
so i came up with this idea...
well, you'll probably say something like: "baah, that was soo obvious.."
but it is as it is, nobody seems to have been thinking about this...


so, at last, i think i got the puzzle cracked:


some of the pics merged:

Justin+Danny
http://www.speedyshare.com/887707296.html

Justin+Maynard
http://www.speedyshare.com/265316751.html

Adam+Danny
http://www.speedyshare.com/931190347.html

Danny+Maynard
http://www.speedyshare.com/933878311.html

the whole beautiful thing:

http://www.speedyshare.com/257799763.html

high quality:

http://www.speedyshare.com/219309310.html


(this is my first try, so some details can not be seen so clearly. for better results try to do it for yourself...the real thinking begins when turning the different layers on and off. i was overwhelmed!)


I think you got the idea... TRY IT YOURSELF! All you need is a scanner and Photoshop.
The details are so overwhelming (like the "ghost" from dannys picture coming out of maynards head in the mirror, where the woman touches him - the crown chakra, or adam's lamps in the pictures at dannys back wall)... everything makes perfect sense...the trinity...the polarity...the strife for oneness...the wings...

it just HAS to be the solution. the evidence is obvious :)

well, if THAT are not news, i don't now... :P

peace

How are they merging? You've overlapped them, but what am I supposed to be seeing?

Yeah you're going to have to post way higher resolution scans if you want us to see anything at all.

All I see is two pictures stuck together. For every similarity you point out, there are like 10 discontinuities.

Words'up.

Good effort, though.

I still think each form a part of the swastika, for squares forming one square in motion.
I know this.

ok, here are some more detailed close-ups of certain areas.
these are without any moving around. just simply one stacked above another.

First the detailed ones, packed in a .rar archive:

http://www.speedyshare.com/935822142.html

Then, a large .psd file (ca. 12MB), for those of you owning photoshop...
play around for yourselves! use your brain and try to interpret it! it's fun! :)

http://www.speedyshare.com/720641511.html

hope this will help you...

so quick to dismiss...
I really can see that they conceived of this.

Danny catches the light, while with one hand Maynard touches it's container, and with the other he offers you wine.

The light(danny) illuminates the wing of the bird and justin's head, in his pic.

There's so many different relations, and then they all seem to work together to form that Unified pic. And Each pic, each member seems to serve it's own purpose as well as the others' collectively.

Hard to articulate, but isnt this EXACTLY what they do with their music, only in Photo-form?

does it? did you look carfully at how they are composed, and where the cutting points lie? what they mean symbolically in the context? what could be interpreted? what the intension is? what should one get out of this?

after all it's not about how it looks, but rather what it means...

THINK BUDDY!!!! :P

hmmm, anybody thinks that justin is in a somewhat important position too?
maybe the bird on the left stands for nature as it is? could it be that the right, white bird is a symbol for the songs wings(pt1) and 10,000 days, while the other bird is standing for rosetta stoned, i.e. reaching "god" through drugs, rather then through death, like the right side implies (the ghost goes through the head of the skeleton before changing into the bird...) hmmm, maybe justin is the one, sung of in rosetta stoned??
things become clearer the longer i look at it...

Found this when exploring the Thoth Tarot (the card on Danny's desk and referred to in that emial Blair posted - perhaps it was a clue???) and found this interesting:

Projective Synthetic Geometry in Lady Frieda Harris’ Tarot Paintings and in A. Crowley’s Book of the Law

http://www.the-book-of-thoth.com/content-111.html

"Crowley noted in the Book of Thoth that the harmony of the cards was proof of the correct application of symbols and colours of the holy cabballa, upon which this tarot was created. By making collages of these cards, I learned that the link between the peculiar cards was not only made through their colours or symbols but through their geometry. Which kind of geometry was used by Harris, which made these links possible?"

"If you cut out these cards and remove their frames, especially the trumps can be put together in a very harmonic fashion. Why so?"

Wait, I lied. I have one more thing to say. That was quite a weak attempt on behalf of TOOL to start a cult dedicated to a sellout album. Sorry guys, but I had to say it.


I like the effort and the idea, though, so don't take this as if I were dogging on you. I'm just getting bugged because TOOL is failing to help their fans with this puzzle what-so-ever. They're just leaving it up to stupidass Blair.

Wait. I really fucking think Cycloz's link might have something to do with this. If anyone has a copy of the album booklet that they'll be willing to cut up, I say read his link and then go for it. It may show that TOOL isn't just trying to start some cult or doing one of their tricks to mess with our minds.

OK, so who plunked down the $30 or whatever they were asking for the posters at the recent shows?

New post on toolband:

"08 May, 2007 (01:19pm)

NEW TOOL POSTER SOLD AT SHOWS

To answer some of your questions, YES, the new TOOL 10,000 DAYS POSTER that is being sold at shows on the current tour should make it easier to solve the puzzle related to the artwork that I've mentioned on a few occasions."

I'm starting to doubt there's a puzzle at all.

The next clue is gonna be:

"YES, all those new Tool concert tshirts that are being sold at shows on the current tour should make it easier to solve the puzzle related to the artwork that I've mentioned on a few occasions."

methinks tool have played a dirty, yet amusing trick on all who take the time to look too far into the notion of a puzzle. if one existed, don't think it would have been solved by now? it's the "leaving the band for religion (wings) part 2

i just got one of the new tool poster last night (wed, may 16) and first of all it was only $10 and i have already noticed some little detail you could not see in the booklet. in each picture there is a little symbol. in danny's it is in the mirror next to his right hand. in maynard's it is on the womans left leg below the ass cheek. on adam's it is on the chest of the skeleton. and on justin's it is just above his head in the negative space of the picture. i can only see these images in the poster and not the cd booklet, so maybe when blair said the poster would help solve they are just trying to show us what to use in each picture to help solve? or all the symbols combined form a clue of sorts? i will take some pictures of the symbols i found, if anybody is interested they can e-mail me at doug@starehard.com and i will send them to you. ive been going crazy trying to figure this thing out, so maybe this will help somebody else who knows more of what they are doing.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Check a few of the other threads regarding those symbols on the poster. They're a Dagger Crypto courtesy of Crowley.

"If you cut out these cards and remove their frames, especially the trumps can be put together in a very harmonic fashion. Why so?"
That's genius man, that's a hint towards merging the pictures somehow to understand how they think and work together imo.

Thanks for the life story.

I've another question...

Does anyone listen to albums anymore? Or do they sync up songs to every video they find? Reverse/splice piece together different songs to find "hidden meanings" or like my new found friend here... look for meaning in the art work?

Whatever happen to "I'll just listen to this album".
