Edgar was very clear in commenting about the unique nature of those blocks. It took an enormous amount of time from him to document that. On several occasions he wanted to quit, but he carried on, carefully documenting the shape of every joint along the AP, and M&R obviously respected that same layout.

And we can be pretty sure Edgar was faithful to those joints since he didn't assert that any other passage had that same complex character.

meanwhile, I'd love to hear an interpretation of the "symbolism" that has been suggested for that passage.
