Pete, can you confirm if any of this is a coincidence or potentially relevant to the solve please?

The Columbus poem makes reference to Rodrigo de Triana, who was the first man to see the New World (Bermuda), at approx 2:00am on 12th October 1492. (0200 121092)
NASA's deep space climate observatory was initially named Triana. It's purpose was to provide a near continuous view of the entire Earth (possible link to picture 1, the four Earths drawing).
There's a relief of Rodrigo de Triana on the Hargreaves Building in Liverpool. The same building includes reliefs of other people involved with the exploration of America including Columbus, Isabella I and Cortez etc. Coincidence, or am I trying to convince myself the token is in NW England?
Hey buryblackpudding, thank you for your input on several threads. Nice and interesting stuff. Yes, I think you try to convince yourself the token is in NW England You need to try to stay open minded until the code is broken and the navigation is cracked. I tried to convince myself that the token is in London for so long. Then I discovered some clues in Scotland and a route to the north. These all could be wrong or red herrings of course. So I stay open minded.
I like this kind of mind maping and gathering information. The oracle itself is very complex because of sooo many topics. So this might be our only chance to solve this riddle.
Here's my penny on this topic (navigation is a key) 1) The river Avon flowing through Bristol and Bath is also called "Avon Navigation". Also there are rivers called "Douglas Navigation" and "Fossdyke Navigation" in England. 2) There really must be a route. Either we - walk - go by ship - go by plane - go by car - draw beelines on google earth. - or a mix We have four pictures where ships are drawn and one with a car. But I'm developing a route by airplane at the moment. I'll let you know.
Hi Sarah Great to see that you are still hard at work and have lots of fresh ideas! I just wanted to clarify something for you as I know you don't live in the UK. As far as I'm aware the River Avon is just called the River Avon, but there are portions of it that can be navigated by small vessels and portions that can not. I'm guessing that when you are looking at a map you might see the words "Avon Navigation" which shows the route that vessels can take. I don't belief there are any Rivers in the UK with navigation within their names. Some rivers have navigation trusts or authorities that are set up to keep the river clear of weeds etc. and make navigation of them possible. For example, there is The Avon Navigation Trust. This is not a trust for the "River Avon Navigation" but a trust that looks after navigation of the River Avon. I hope that helps to clarify things. Keep up the good work! All the best Marc
PS I know this because I live not too far from the southern portion of The River Avon.
Hey Marc, thank you very much for clarification. It's great to have a 'local guide'. The description of the river Avon in Wikipedia sounded a little bit like this. But I crossed it off my list now.
The reason why I'm thinking about rivers is a main clue which Pete gave about navigation: Clue no: 29: 'At last we have arrived, the pyramid in front There's still a way to go before we close this hunt Turn around and look again, the prize is in plain sight Face the truth, cross the line and it will serve you right'
That 'line' is driving me crazy. What's the line? Here is my priority list: 1) The book talks about one line: 'an ancient line'.. Many agree it's the Roman Road 'Devil's Highway' 2) Roman walls: Hadrian and Antonine (Clue no 7: 'can you read between the lines'.) 3) A river "NILE = LINE" ... River Thames, Forth.. 4) Meridian 5) Philosophically: the line that is drawn between good and bad (British rock) 6) Train/Plane/Car lines Any other ideas? What do you think that line is?
There are multiple lines as Pete mentioned in the interview "There are definitely hunters out there who are thinking along the right lines". So actually we can discard 4 and 5
and clue no. 3: 'Navigation, navigation, navigation - to find the token, the code must be broken' The code with navigation in one sentence. So that means the code reveals the navigation, doesn't it?
to whom it may concern... Here is a drawing of the roman roads. I think these are very important lines. The red line is the devil's highway, because it was so straight people said the devil made it (from London to Staines to Silchester). From there three straight roads were built to Old Sarum (Portway), Bath (nameless?), and Gloucester (Ermin Street).
yes ok. just an additional note from my side, because "Ermin/Ermine" is important, maybe: 1) There was an Ermin Way: "It linked Glevum (Gloucester) and Corinium (Cirencester) to Calleva (Silchester). ... At Glevum, it connected to the road to Isca (Caerleon), the legionary base in southeast Wales." (wikipedia) 2) And a main Road "Ermine Street": "from London (Londinium) to Lincoln (Lindum Colonia) and York (Eboracum). The Old English name was "Earninga Straete" (1012)" (wikipedia)
