KITE wrote:The poem [BY WILLIAM BLAKE] is interesting. Consider a section of translated 340: (PHNEAEAKL*BALLLSLSVEESEAECBUEADLI*LWLLSTOENLEITHER). The 2 asterisk represent the backward c symbol which means nothing. Unjumbled: PHANE LAKE B SLLLLAVES BEECAUSE DEAL WILLL STOLEN EITHER. Without multiple letters and errors, perhaps reading: (Phone Lake B. Slaves Because Deal Will Stolen Either.) But let me write it again and notice where the asterisk are, again? PHANE (EAKL*B) ALLLSLSVE ESEAECBU EADL (I*LWL)L STOENL EITHER. So, you can see the words there as possible allusion, perhaps?
AK = BLAKE WILL.
I never was convinced that EAKL B meant "Lake Berryessa", that seemed a bit of a stretch to me.
Considering we know Zodiac was influenced or mentioned stories/books/movies like "Most Dangerous Game", "Exorcist", and perhaps Edgar Allan Poe and others, I don't rule out the Blake reference.
The possible Blake conection was mentioned above, it says in part:
A poster on another forum named "Believe09" thought that the Zodiac 340 First Stage Solution (Graysmith-1979 FBI File-Kite And Other Old ZK Board Researchers) showed possible influences from poet William Blake, in particular from this poem.
Keep in mind the translated 340 solution line:these foolshall see
among others. And consider how a "wise man" like Ted Kaczynski "sees" a TREE (and NATURE) compared to the "FOOLS".
Remember too the Zodiac interest in time (telling Bates it was "TIME to die"), watches and clocks, and the 0-3-6-9 of a clock face.
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell - An Excerpt
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
Drive your cart and your plow over the bones of the dead.
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
Prudence is a rich, ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.
He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.
The cut worm forgives the plow.
Dip him in the river who loves water.A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Eternity is in love with the productions of time.
The busy bee has no time for sorrow.The hours of folly are measur'd by the clock; but of wisdom,
no clock can measure.
All wholesome food is caught without a net or a trap.
Bring out number, weight and measure in a year of dearth.
No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.
A dead body revenges not injuries.
