Lateralus song story

I heard that if you play the songs on Lateralus in a certain order they tell a story.

Is this true? And If anyone has that track order please post.

Yeah, the holy order or something like that. I personally prefer listening to it in the order that Tool put it in.

Well, yes, there were (are) several theories, on of them is called the holy gift. It is based on the fibonacci sequence, it says the tracks should be played in a special order, so the track numbers create some kinda spiral. (the fibonacci sequence appears several places in nature, sometimes by forming a mathematical spiral.)
so they say, that the "Holy gift", the real order is:
6,7,5,8,4,9,13,1,12,2,11,3,10.
(there are some similar theories as well, 1,2,3,5,8,13,4,6,7,9,10,11,12 ("The Fibonacci Sequence"), 6,7,5,8,4,9,3,10,2,11,1,12,13 ("The Lateralus Prophecy"))

But i think it is bullshit:-))

ps.: if you wanna know more about the holy gift theory (do a search on the tdn forum or), read this:
www.bofe.org/overthinking.htm
it is quite detailed.

EDIT: ... why is this in the grudge topic?
