What is the Lost Symbol in Dan Brown's newest novel?
The answer, like everything he writes, is Hidden in Plain Sight!
AND X MARKS THE SPOT!
The Mystery of the Lost Symbol
KRYPTOS SCULPTURE AT CIA
With missing symbol!!

LYNCH-PIN OF DAN BROWN'S
titled "Kryptos," the Greek word for "hidden," includes an undulating sheet of copper with a message devised by the sculptor,
Jim Sanborn, and Edward M. Scheidt, a retired chairman of the C.I.A.'s cryptographic center.
is broken into four sections, and in 1999, a computer programmer named Jim Gillogly announced he had figured out the first
three, which include poetic ramblings by the sculptor and an account of the opening of King Tut's tomb. The C.I.A. then announced
that one of its physicists, David Stein, had also deciphered the first three sections a year earlier.
ofthe LOST SYMBOL of Kryptos…X ??
April 19, 2006, Sanborn contacted the Kryptos group (an online community dedicated to the Kryptos puzzle) to inform them that the accepted solution to part 2 was wrong. He had removed a single
character THE LOST SYMBOL from the cipher text for aesthetic reasons. An accidental result of this change was that plaintext
that should have decoded as "X LAYER TWO" had been mistakenly decoded as "ID BY ROWS".
The impact of this change on
attempts to solve part 4 is not currently known. Sanborn (the sculpture’s artist) has implied that there may be a connection,
as solvers "were in fact, missing a clue."
So like in some Indiana Jones story,
the artist is making a bit of joke:X MARKS THE SPOT.Which some have conjectured to be the location of something buried at specific coordinates on the CIA grounds
themselves. Possibly the key to Section 4 which has not been decoded or more likely something that conveys the meaning of
the riddle within a riddle that the artist referred to in countless interviews? It jives with the coordinates that were hinted
at on the cover of the Da Vinci Code.
Here’s the part of Section II:
(Note some words weremisspelled on purpose.)
It was totally invisible Hows that
possible? They used the Earths magnetic field X
The information was gathered and transmitted
undergruund to an unknown location X
Does Langley know about this? They should
Its buried out there somewhere X
Who knows the exact location? Only WW
This was his last message X
Thirty eight degrees fifty seven minutes six
point five seconds north
Seventy seven degrees eight minutes forty four
seconds west ID by rows (should be decoded as X LAYER
So one simple answer to what is the missing symbol
in Dan Brown’s The LOST SYMBOL is simply….Xthe symbol that Sanborn states was left off
for simply aesthetic reasons… hmmm… I you believe that!
hidden in the Da Vinci Code were the lettersWW which stand for former CIA director
William Webster who was allegedly given the solution to the code by the artist.
Te baccket of
The Da Vinci Code includes text printed backward. When held to a mirror, it reads, "Only WW knows," referring
to a passage taken from Kryptos
indicating that only one person knows what may be buried on the CIA grounds. "WW" refers to former CIA director William Webster,
who received an envelope from sculptor Jim Sanborn containing the solution to Kryptos. But Sanborn says that even Webster doesn't know -- when he gave the solution to Webster, he
left out some crucial parts.

Here’s some of Webster’s quotes which also serve as clues?

Speaks to a sense of place …"

race across Washington to follow the clues.
of "Covert Balance": "This piece was inspired by the Kryptos piece I did at the C.I.A. Headquarters. It depicts
two opposing encoded texts, one relating to C.I.A. covert operations and the other to K.G.B. operations. The two text
panels are separated by a petrified tree which was burned before petrifaction. Its present location at the Hirshhorn
museum on the mall between the U.S. Capitol Building and the Washington Monument seems to be ultimately appropriate."

THE LOST SYMBOL. Dan Brown states that nothing will be as it appears, which means that ,like the Kryptos code,
his secrets will be many layered, a trail like in Angels and Demons that Langdon must follow to save the girl no
doubt and save the world.
But what are these other symbols. Dan Brown has already given us many hints in The Da Vinci Code and the
Challenge Internet games. Some of those symbols were answers, remember them?
The the layout of Washington D.C. is mirrored in the Heavens some say, much like the pyramids of Egypt are alinement
with the stars above.
The symbols are the Chi-Rho, the ANHK, VIRGO, and the Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool. Dan Brown has already
hinted at these symbols and he will have Langdon discover a lost codex of Leonardo Da Vinci which will probably be based upon
the Key of Solomon the King.
There are so far-out speculations about the this 16th century(not actually written by King Solomon in fact) book of spells
and incantations. The problem is that the Keys of Solomons are not ancient at all. And there are many versions
of them in Hebrew, Greek, Italian, French and Latin. No scholar worth his salt believes any of them are truly ancient
works but rather a hodge-podge of collected works whose symbols and wording was changed by each author.
So if Dan Brown trys to say that Leonardo discovered an ancient parchment, he's telling tall tales, which is okay. It's
First the CHI-RHO symbol.
Wayne Herschel believes the LOST
SYMBOL is simply the cross found in the Orion Belt, visible by the ancients, found in only one specific version of a Solomon
Key Talisman or Pentacle, and a clue to our origins. Hmmm. Only problem is the conjunction is July 4th and Brown
is releasing THE LOST SYMBOL on Sept. 15 three days before the 18th, the date of George Washington’s inaugural
Wayne Herschel claims
to use the “real or original” Key of Solomon and cites this link to where you can see it on the Internet.http://www.esotericarchives.com/solomon/ksol.htm By scrolling toward the bottom of the page. What he fails to mention is that
earlier this rendition of a the Holy Pentacles is explained as also being from most likely the 1600’s not some ancient
origional Hebrew text at all.
Herschel also refers to the French title of
an eighteenth-century manuscript of Les vrais clavicules
du roiSalomon, translated from the Hebrew (dubious at best since there is no Hebrew version found anywhere),
which was sold in Paris in 1921. Again, like all the other Keys of Solomon it dates to only about the 16th
century. It was studied by S. L. Mathers when he translated the Greater Key of Solomon the King but Mathers
left out the section that names the demons cited by Herschel because he concluded they were a later addition to the text.
From Wikepedia: The
clavicles of Solomonthe King
is the title of a manual of magic which was first published in 1825 in Paris.On y trouve les règles rituelles,
ainsi que les périodes astrologiques favorables (jours, et heures, selon les influences planétaires qui leur sont attribuées)
pour toute expérimentation magique. There are rules, rituals, and the favorable astrological periods (days, hours,
according to planetary influences attributed to them) for magical experimentation.
auteurs prétendent qu'il s'agirait en fait du testament que le célèbre roi Salomon , qui selon les diverses légendes aurait été
doté de pouvoirs surnaturels et d'une connaissance quasi-universelle [réf. nécessaire] , aurait légué à son fils Roboam. The authors argue that this will in fact the famous King Solomon, who according to various legends have been endowed
with supernatural powers and a near-universal knowledge [ref. Necessary] would have bequeathed to his son Rehoboam .Ce testament aurait été conservé par des
rabins qui lui aurait donné son nom actuel [réf. nécessaire] . This will have been retained by Rabins that would have given its present name [ref. Necessary].
On peut toutefois
s'étonner de la présence dans le manuscrit des noms de St Pierre et de St Paul, ce qui rendrait totalement fausses ses prétendues
origines. It may surprise the presence in the manuscript of the
names of St Peter and St Paul, making his alleged totally false origins.
Okay, so what's the big
deal. Well the truth is that none of the various Keys of Solomon can be dated back to the time of King Solomon period.
Here's some more factual history about the grimoires.
Even another named the TRUE GRIMOIRE
or Grimorium Verum was
a later work written in French and Italian.
published by Gollancz as Sepher Maphteah Shelomoh (Book of the Key of Solomon)
(Oxford, 1914). The manuscript dates to around 1700. G. Scholem edited the text in 'Some Sources of Jewish-Arabic Demonology',
in Journal of Jewish Studies, xvi (1965). It contains a large number of Greek (such as Sabaoth), Latin, and Italian
elements. Also has Christian elements, such as the use of a cross put in holy water (fol. 37a, cited by Rohrbacher-Sticker
in 'A Hebrew Manuscript of Clavicula
Salomonis, Part II. in the British Library Journal, Vol. 21, 1995, pp. 132.) It is probably (as Scholem puts it) a late
adaptation of a 'Latin (or rather Italian) Clavicula text of the renaissance period' (ibid p. 6.).
And the G. Scholem who edited
this text is none other than the famous Hebrew scholar better known for his work on explaining the Kabbalah. So if he says
it is not an ancient pentacle actually written by King Solomon we should take his word for it.
Further, Mr. Herschel’s
theory states that the demons names or the daemons (listed in the Key of Solomon)are actually code for certain stars and constellations.
First of all, the Greater Key
of Solomon doesn’t list the names of demons. It has tables of what are called correspondences to: Arch Angels, Planets,
the Elements and Planetary Hours. No demons.
In fact, it’s another version
known as the Lesser Key of Solomon that lists names of demons but it is also not ancient at all.
The Lesser Key of Solomon
or Clavicula Salomonis (the Clavis Salomonis, or Key of Solomon is an earlier book on the subject), is an anonymous 17th century grimoire, and one of the most popular books of demonology. It has also long been widely known as the Lemegeton.
The book claims that it was originally
written by King Solomon, although this is certainly incorrect. The titles of nobility (such
as the French Marquis or Germanic Earl) assigned to the demons were unknown in his time, as were the prayers to Jesus and the ChristianTrinity included in the text.
And besides, the diagrams of
the demons are more typical of those found in other 14th through 16th century grimoires or books of
so-called Black Magick.
Part one is called the
ARS GOETIA(Arts … Ancient Greekγοητεία (goēteia) means "charm, jugglery" from γόης "sorcerer, wizard". Also The word may be ultimately derived from the verb γοάω "groan,
Part Two is called Theurgia (Divine
Here are some of the sigils (magickal
symbols and drawings) representing the demons.
To make these grimoires
more mysterious and authentic in origion, it was common practise to attribute them to some famous magi or adept like King
Solomon, or in a few cases evern popes--like Honorus! Early attempts at hype and spin marketing were used by the authors of
these secret tomes on magick.
I have nothing against Mr.
Herschel at all. But the reader should know the truth behind the alleged but not ancient Hebrew texts he uses to make his
point. It is a typical fiction writer's method of first coming up with a plot device or theory and then, finding whatever
evidence you can to support the concept. But that's not what real historians do is it? I would hope that this time out the
critics of Dan Brown will stop accusing him of bending history because he like myself is just a novelist not actually some
Harvard Symbolist, a term that has no basis in fact itself!
SIGIL OF DEMOM WHICH DOES NOT
RESEMBLE A STAR BUT ANGELIC SCRIPT
Is THE LOST SYMBOL CHI-RHO or
X Marks the Spot!!
Chi Rho are the first two
letters (chi = ch and rho = r) in the Greek spelling of the word Christ ( Greek : "Χριστός" ), and
so have come to be used for a number of usages.
"As a pre-Christian symbol, the Chi-ro signified good fortune. The Chi ro became an important Christian
symbol when adopted by the Roman Emperor Constantine, representing the first two letters in the name of Christ- the Chi, or
'ch,' and Rho, or 'r.' According to Church Father Eusebius, on the eve of the Battle of the Milvan Bridge, the Emperor saw
the emblem in a dream, with the inscription, "By this sign, you shall conquer." According to the story, the battle was won.
In return for the victory, Constantine erected Christian churches. Unfortunately, this story is very unlikely, as Constantine's
conversion occured on his deathbed, if at all. In any case, the symbol was the standard of the Emperor's army, prominently
displayed on the Emperor's labarum, or battle standard.
Before it became the monogram of Christ, the chi rho was the monogram of Chronos, the god of time,
and an emblem of several solar deities.
The Chi-ro is also the origin of the tradition of abbreviating "Christ" in "christian" or "Christmas"
In Hebrew, Chi-Rho equates to Tav-Resh. The chi rho was used in hermetic alchemical texts to denote
time."Unbiased symbolists like the fictional Langdon have shown that the cross
in various forms long predates Christianity. Assyrian gods, even Ba’al where represented by it. It closely aligns with
Sun worship: the sun wheel with only the four spokes, the Roman Holiday Sol Invitus has for its first letter … X or

Okay, so we have explored the LOST SYMBOL, the missing X symbol left out of the Kryptos sculpture.
We explored the symbols for the Divine Goddess, Venus and the symbols of the Chi-rho and the Anhk. We explored how the coordinates
of Google and GPS lead us to the buried treasure at the CIA. How the artist's design of the Masonic compass points the
So what's left. Well we all know about the alleged pentegram and the owl and how some
say the streets of our Captital are form the outline of the Great Pyramid and its inner chambers.
But there is that big pesky symbol that is out there, the one that is staring us right in
the face, the one that symbolizes the fundemental principle of the Masons and Gnostics and the
So what is it?
Remember what I said at the start.
It's hidden in PLAIN SIGHT!
What's below is as what's above, or as in a simple prayer that every child learns in Sunday
school: The Our Father.
... thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven!!...
Remember Dan Brown's bedrock theme is the power and symbols of the Lost Goddess that still
surround us everyday.
Our nations capital is named The District of COLUMBIA!!
Think of the logo at the begining of every Columbia Pictures film. It's a Goddess dressed
in blue! ringed by a crown of Stars. The answer is the larget ANHK symbol hidden by its sheer size, the conjoining of
the male and female principle for enlightenment and higher understanding.
The Wahsington Monument and
it's mirrored image conjoined in the Reflecting Pool!
“For she can only reflect the glory of man"
The Sun and Moon conjoined; the Fire and Water; the male and female.
Just like the Sun, the obelisk/monument (fire, masculine, Sol) and the Moon, the reflecting pool!
( the Great Goddess, the divine feminine, Diana, Isis, Mary, The Star of the Sea-Settla Maris, Columbia the Gem of the Ocean,
The Dove... she reflects the image of the pahlus, the ultimate male symbol reaching for the Heavens but now conjoined... the
TRUE secret of all Masonry and Alechemy and yes, religion!)
I would suspect that Dan
Brown has Landgon reflect upon this point as he stands gazing intently at the Washington Monument.

Last month, while in Florence, Professor
Langdon uncovered an ancient parchment that historians now believe may be the work of Leonardo da Vinci. The encoded parchment—bearing the name La Profezia (The
Prophecy)—raised eyebrows when scholars discovered it was signed "LSPDV." (Leonardo's full
name was Leonardo Ser
More intriguing still is the legend
that the visionary Leonardo, in the days before his death, made a powerful prophecy about the future. Could this be Da Vinci's long lost prediction? Historians remain eager to learn what this
parchment says. The code has yet to reveal its mystery, but Robert Langdon is very close to finding the key to deciphering
the message. Leonardo's encoded message consists of 24 symbols. Robert Langdon is certain there exists a key, and he is
working very hard to find it.
The "Sacred Geometry" of the Masonic layout of streets in Washington, D.C., will most likely lead Brown's Professor Langdon to discover that Fort Marcy Park lies along the same
line as that made by the National Mall, which lies between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, and that extending
that line almost all the way across the United States would pass directly through the Mormon Tabernacle Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Oddly, the Mormon Tabernacle is closed to the public throughout 2006.) Even
more eerie, a line drawn from the Washington Monument to Rock Creek Park, where the body of Chandra Levy, a attractive Jewish woman who was a federal Bureau of Prisons intern and the secret lover of a Congressman,
was found in 2002, would, if extended, pass through the Scottish Rite Freemasonic Center in D.C., as well as through Freemason's Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Above
Levy's name is handwritten the words "Shari Eli." Perhaps a character name? Chandra is Sanskrit for "light," that which Masons
claim to seek.
One of the strangest pages may be this list of statues and monuments in the Washington, D.C. area, with
perplexing phrases after them:
D.C. Masonic Temple — Irish ale
Jeff Memorial — A fenced in miser
Albert Pike statue — Fresh cad onto a monk
Persephone statue on Capitol — Hi, Israel
Geo. Washington Masonic Memorial — Print a rug, Ben
Washington Obelisk — Accords femmes
Notes: The last one may refer to the Washington Monument.
"Accords femmes" translates from French into "women's agreements."
George Washington and Albert Pike were both Freemasons,
as was Ben Franklin, who may be the "Ben" referenced in one of the phrases. "Ben" may also refer to the character Ben Gates
in the film National Treasure.
The message of the Georgia Guidestones, written
in English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, and Swahili is:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
