**The secret of the (calendar)
pyramid.**

A radical survey over the various lay-outs for a precision calendar, based on my discovery of duplexity, within the realistic borders of the type-face interpretation of the inscription, as a set-off to the previous opinion of the types as syllables in a text.

Under the on-going process of demonstrating the calendar
path, I go through several arrangements of signs and sign-groups, which 'while sampled' strongly
indicate 'like brooks make river' that these hieroglyphs represent something
else than language, "nothing else than calendrical" satisfactory substantiated in the three initial examples right
beneath:**
- The 46 individual signs & The 22 stem-forms**

- I define a stem as
two signs, and ' hey presto! 'all hurdles vanish into thin air
**...**** - The 61 dissimilar elements**

- Yet another rabbit out
of the magicians top hat ** - The 50 stem-sign-groups on a
string.**

- An alternative, vertical and non-linear, direction of reading.

**The quadrature of the (calendar)
circle.**

As something new I contemplate the two dotted dividers ahead of A01 and B01 as true characters, and the total amount is in my view 242 + 2 = 244 characters or 10² + 12². As it happens 244 is a multiple of 61, which is of mathematical significance, in that the disc is divided into exactly 61 (5² + 6²) signgroups.Accordingly the signgroups hold an average of exactly four signs.

After this, the calendar aspect gets into the picture, as six multiplied with 61 is equal to 366, corresponding to a leap year, and 365 - 244 = 121, thus the inscription is missing 11² characters. 10² +( 11² )+ 12² = 365. This missing third part has no substantial presence in the inscription, but stands abbreviated (

The visible inscription ,with its actual 244 characters, corresponds with two third of a year or eight months, in which side A's now 124 characters could represent four months of 31 days each, and side B's 120 are equal to four months of 30 days (

My appeal to everyone, 'right and decent', is then: Be ingenuous about your natural enthusiasm to this break-through to the riddle!, which certaintly represents my life ...

**Three decisive openings, as a consequence of the
twenty-two stem-forms :**

** - The six initial sign-groups of side A are in continuation
of side B, giving part A and part B.**

-My advancements are numerous. As an
example, this figure emphasizes that the inscription is a folding up of two
variations over the same manifest. ** - The
super-relation between the thirty-three pair of stems and the reduced stems "The
Gnomonical arrangement", **- and therefore this inscription is not
language. - That is a proof -. The two halves are profoundly congruent.

** -
The calendar takes form, when the two initial signs in front of A01 and B01 are
interpreted as part of the sign-material.** - It is a fact that a count with
244 signs instead, makes an eight month calendar a reality

**In any cryptanalytic problem a single sure entry
solves the problem **(**iv**) :

repeated in at least one more sign-group.

The stem is not allowed to overlap any other stem,

which can be confirmed by a more often presence.

Also the disc contains as many as 53 different signgroups out of 61.

Let the high flying notions that these hieroglyphs represent a text simultaneously be pigeonholed for the far out future instead. and keep concentrated on the annual ledger inside

My highscore: 59 correct and 2 failures - what a presto!

(against Christoph Henkel: 32 correct and 29 failures ;-)

Time to give in! The twenty-two stem-forms have become the new units - no back-door, thank you.

To put an interpretation on pictures from the edge of historic time is very interesting, but also continually reflected by the imperfect documentation, though perhaps there will also be shown to be an analogy to something of common historical property, what concerns the imagery of the signs, or it will show that the pictorial message is a sealed chapter in an even higher extent, than e.g. the symbols of the never doubted Maya calendar.

Let me emphasize, that my superior objective with this investigation was to attain insight in the regularities, from which the sequences of signs were composed. In other words, I was not occupied with interpretations of the signs as images, but with an investigation of their interrelations and frequencies. This proved to be the right angel of approach.

The accomplishment of my decoding of the inscription implied a good number of disciplines, yet I am still not adept on calendar mathematic, and the continued unravelling of this calendar I shall leave to the readers, when a mention of my 'unexpected discovery' of the true proportions is effected in a way, proportional to the importance of my discovery, that everyone who has tried his hand at this enigmatic disc, amateurs as well as scholars, in this way shall get admission to my results. Then I trust, that someone among the readers will take inspiration from my method of investigation and its result, to place the last intricate piece, by the aid of one of my variations over this newfound calendar, and thereby finally confirm my decipherment. It ought not to take that long.

**My statistics are hold on several related levels
within the stem concept.**

[__1__]. **The visible sign-material** of 242 signs and the two initial
dividers regarded as part of the inscription, giving **244 signs**.** - Alpha minus -**(no thorns)61 x4

[__2__]. The
same material added the 17 thorn-units, giving 244+17=**261 units.**** - Alpha plus -.**29 x 9

[__3__]. **The
expanded inscription.** The above 261 units together with the absent 104 units
from the incomplete (reduced) elements, giving 261+104=**365** units, or
262+104=**366**, if 18 thorns.** - Beta plus -.**
61 x 6

[__4__]. 244+104=**348**, (no thorns)** - Beta
minus -.**29 x12

[__5__]. Finally **'The
alternative calendar'.** Here I choose to combine 44 consequtive reduced
elements into 22 so-called "combies", leaving only 60 reduced elements instead
of the otherwise 104. Following these metrical footsteps :

**_ . _ . _ . _ . _
. _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _

[__6__]. Recently I have implicated a variation called ”**The
fleur-de-lis calendar"** in which I am probing the possibility of
an intentional obliterated sign in A08 and the common uncertainty about the
numbers of thorns of which 16, 17, or 18 have been suggested. Total
243+103+18=**364 units**

[7].** 'Husk
& Kernel calendar'.** *"The relation between the
signs and the sign-groups is calendrical".*

Signs =244. Arcs and
dividers =60+61 =**365 units**

This taken into consideration, you can
trust that my figures and my enumerations are as precise as can be. By being
conversant with the use of my designations, you'll find that everything is not
so difficult, as it seems.** - It
is a geometrical solution -.**

The two halves are congruent. Good-bye language! - Now eased in mind, let us continue in confidence with our newly acquired knowledge. What is next?

So too L. Pomerance, The Phaestos Disc. An interpretation of Astronomical Symbols (Göteborg 1976) 34. 'By turning the Disc eleven times and observing it twelve times, the total annual count comes to 366 unit days...'. - Ergo: side A's 31 and side B's 30 signgroups compose two months in this opinion.

*Now I've ended my analysis of the consequences of the 22 stemforms.
Besides I've analysed the consequences 'by the instrumentality of a mirror' of
the reflections to my discovery, tempting the great risk of (definition:) being

thirteen Anecdotes*

I take myself as a marathon man (2) from the moment, when I did show forward my discovery in trust and confidence, to 'the still to come' moment of acceptance of my decipherment. The resistance against my results was starting where it should have ended.

You react creatively towards natural and neccesary opposition, opposite than to the (complementary) not neccesary and artificial kind.-These are two different worlds- !- My obstrucle was to decode this impossible riddle, so I did.
