This is a work in progress. Additional portions of the Riddle of Dorminion will be posted every time the previous parts of the riddle have been solved in their entirety by at least one reader. It took 6 years to compose this puzzle. It contains well over 2000 clues to places, people, theories esoteric and modern, schools of thought, and speculation arranged in 260 “quatrains”. Solve the Riddle of Dorminion and it will revolutionize your thinking. Each of the 260 “quatrains” resolves into words (not necessarily connected). To crack this puzzle, you must first decipher the 260 components separately and then combine the resulting strings of words into a single coherent text. There are numerous possible combinations (more than the number of atoms in the Universe!) The order of the quatrains is no indication as to how the words should be arranged. It is here that knowledge, intelligence, and intuition are tested to the maximum.

The Riddle of Dorminion
 Author’s Preface
It took 6 years to compose this riddle. It contains well over 2000 clues to places, people,theories esoteric and modern, schools of thought, and speculation arranged in 260“quatrains”. Solve the Riddle of Dorminion in its entirety and it will revolutionize your thinking.
 How to Solve the Riddle
Each of the 260 “quatrains” resolves into words (not necessarily connected).To crack this puzzle, you must first decipher the 260 components separately and thencombine the resulting strings of words into a single coherent text. There are numerous possible combinations (more than the number of atoms in the Universe!) The order of thequatrains is no indication as to how the words should be arranged. It is here that knowledge,intelligence, andintuitionare tested to the maximum.
 Example of a partial solution
Consider quatrain 13. It says:
“A pound of flesh in Libra. Another sinks and while its sister rises, its depth unplumbed,its powers unrestrained, it binds the ancient cultures across a common sea. There is the fount.” 
A
“pound of flesh” 
is an expression borrowed from Shakespeare’s immortal play “Merchantof Venice”.
“Another sinks” 
refers to another great place which had sunk in the past or is sinking nowinto the sea, exactly as does Venice. That would seem to indicate the legendary Atlantis.Thus,
“ancient cultures across a common sea” 
would be ancient Egypt and Greece. Thecommon sea is, of course, the Mediterranean.The words these fragments of the quatrain have yielded are, therefore: Venice, Atlantis,Egypt, and Greece.Example of a complete solution
“Behold, the Birdman cometh, the chiselled faces atop denuded ground, a date foretold of  Dutch extraction.” 
The solution – the word hiding behind this segment of the riddle - is
Easter
. The quatraindescribes the Easter Island, its mythology, famous stone statues (moai), and its discovery bythe Dutch admiral Jacob Roggeveen on Easter Sunday 1722.Hope this helps.
 
Sam Vaknin==================================================================================================This is the riddle of Dorminion, the Entrusted, as set forth in his Tablets. Its resolutionrequires the erudition of the ancients and the new and the perseverance of the hermit. No less.A great enlightenmentawaits.
Cycle I: The World
(1)Of nothingness came form and form begat shape and shape begat force and force begat light and light begat a world, a thousand myriad worlds in one another’s wombthey turn in darkness and illumination, in time they turn and in eternity so that theymay be born and die even when they are naught.(2)To know before one finds, to find before one fetches, to fetch before one knows, thisis the nature of the circle and the snake.(3)Inside, the voyage to the stars, a traveller, a ship, no sails, no mast, just a breeze of indecision, the heavens milky with one’s thoughts, pearls of the immaterial and theimmanent cast, strewn like vessels broken amid the ladder-wreck.(4)Homecoming a foreign word: landscapes that we project are interchangeable, lovedones betrayed, the wheels and chariots ablaze as prophets blind us with their zeal. Awoman weaves.
(5)
That which is divisible is a stream, the whole is but the resonance of parts. Each endattracts its means, each meaning draws its errors and quartered it recedes. Beware themists, our  timethe obfuscation.
(6)
The weathered vane, a pregnant insult, key, torch, a cornerstone that tunnels through.In halls of mirrors peregrines abide and ravens. The breakdown of a symmetryentangled.(7)From one plurality, the dance of twins, quadrilles of mutual annihilation and matricesordained. A reified contango, a serpent and its trail.(8)The fountainhead ascribed, cartouche upon cartouche: The Queen is Dead. The owland the cat afloat among the ruins and scrolls, their smiles that linger portend thewonder.(9)On sarcophagi lids a name. Its arms crossed mummified, eyes hollow sockets, echoesof ancient winds from toothy apertures. The curse upon us that was thrice foretold.(10)The Miracle of the Kisses: That night, the cock denied him thrice. His motheand the whore downloaded him, nails etched into his palms, his thorny foreheadglistening, his body speared. He wanted to revive unto their moisture. But thenauseating scents of vinegar and Roman legionnaires, the dampness of the cave, and
 
then that final stone... His brain wide open, supper digested that was to have been hislast. He missed so his disciples, the miracle of their kisses. He was determined not todecompose.(11)In calendars of stone, the stars removed. Hearts pounding as the ballentrenches. Constellations waver, priests intone upon penumbral pyramids.(12)On a hill – the city and abyss, a spirit hovers. Eagles peck at fire re-ignited. Ascurrents clash, a continent in chains emerges from the waves, all rocks and solitude. Wemight discern its fearful symmetry.(13)A pound of flesh in Libra. Another sinks and while its sister rises, its depthunplumbed, its powers unrestrained, it binds the ancient cultures across a common sea.There is the fount.(14)The Golden Tablets of lake and church like the matrimony of a blackenedstone against the millennial ordinance. The monopole, it wanders or it shifts? No stringsattached, a massive symmetry in clashing beams, circled, tenebrous holes may yield asynecdoche.
(15)
The ways it folds, theCapgras shift,a shadow and an archetype. Progenitors of Erebus no longer separated. The vacuum vibes, the Earth resounds, the heaven’schariot withdrawn.
Cycle II: The Heavens
(1)The Harpocratic oath, a hawk, behold the child of Holst in sun disc’s mystery.Initiation of the corn, the maiden of the Underworld. ‘Tis there, the first pillar of Yakhin.(2)The date a feathered serpent, the end and start of life, a genesis. Apprentice andmaster at last united in their church. ‘Tis there the second pillar of Boaz.(3)He massacred the innocents, rebuilt and, tables overturned, his offspring, for a songand dance, proceeded with the blood. The crucifixion of a Man of Dawn, the Son of God.(4)A shining tradition of broken vessels and of spheres suggests the numerology of doom. In judgement sits the fallen angel, the bringer of the light, a titan, his foresightchained, there be the rock.
Cycle III: Hell
(1)Behold, the Birdman cometh, the chiselled faces atop denuded ground, a date foretoldof Dutch extraction.(2)Brothers in latitude, a sunless Empire, its sons incinerated beneath tenebrous rainsfrom mushroom clouds. It is the mother’s name that launched this death.
(3)
Another Dutchman’s garden of earthly, private pleasures. Phantasmagoria whosesaintly counterpart cures burning bread.
