A happy new year to you, and hope things work themselves out.
I think at this time, there are many of us going through major changes and adjustments in our lives.
Yes very interesting questions Jeff and I'm pleased you have have added your own thoughts to these practical problems which would surely have been a factor as to why we have these discrepancies which compromise - although not to any great extent - the 'intended' encoded information in the map.
My thoughts exactly.
>Let's also take, for example, the Pentagon, which the groundbreaking ceremony for took place on 9/11/46, exactly 60 years to the day of the Twin Towers event, of recent and horrific memory (I was working within a one-mile distance that day, in Manhattan, and slept in the office that night).<
Fascinating. I didn't - and I'm sure many others didn't know either - that this Pentagon ceremony was 60 years to the day of this event.
>I recall reading someplace (perhaps one of you will have better recall) that the Pentagon was supposed to be built in a designated place, but that Franklin D. Roosevelt decided that it would ruin the view of DC from the Arlington National Cemetary if it was built there, and so had it built slightly out of the Arlington sightline.
One might ask, and justly so, if FDR's adjustment of the building site placed the Pentagon a tad askew of the ideal geometric location for the reason given, or was the adjustment meant to put the location "spot on."<
Again interesting. Perhaps Moe Sizlac (bigbytes) has an answer for this.
I have been reading through the pages written by Moe - following his measurements - and I must say I'm very impressed with the amount of mental energy he has applied to this encoded information in the map. I can see he has been working on this for many years.
Its a frutiful area of research and could be the real 'National Treasure'.
I can see that I will have to update my webpage to bring more attention to Moe's work
