The Riddle of Dorminion
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.”
“pound of flesh”
is an expression borrowed from Shakespeare’s immortal play “Merchantof Venice”.
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
. 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.
