Something about the "4th" clue keeps nagging me.
Every 4th letter led us to the "THE FOURTH RING IS DEEP IN ATS" message and the thread clues you all so quickly solved.
Looking at the resultant list of solutions, every 4th solution in the list is preceded by its number (4, 8, 12, 16, 20). The only solution preceded by
its number that does not follow the pattern is 22. However, 2+2 = 4. (stretching?)
Each numbered solution uses a different numbering punctuation, except 12. and 22. :
4) the second shall shatter the philistines
8: ancient it is and ancient it waits
12. only one will be righteous and of truth not faltered
16 --- spoke once this ancient legend of creation
20> in the long and old path
22. there shall be your discovery
Since "4th" is still up on FTR, maybe this has signifigance. Or maybe it is a red herring.
What do you think?
