RE: Simplify
1. Write down what you believe the nine clues are
2. Look through TTOTC, writing down everything he writes related to each clue. I.e. where does he go alone? What is/are brown? What makes someone meek? He answers them all in the book.
3. Marry the answers to a place on a map.

I agree, and go a step farther—read the captions assigned to each photo, and find those key words in the book, too.

It’s hide n seek.

The book confirms what the poem tells me. I have the poem “simplified” to about 27 words. Now to start the marrying.

Mindy didn't know if you or anyone else sees it, it's not just a left wing, but a severed left wing

The poem tells you to look in the book, that is why all you need is the poem. "Listen up and hear me good" was Forrest telling you to look at what he had to say. All he had to say was TTOTC. The blogs and other stuff is just for entertainment.

RE: Simplify
I disagree on the poem pointing towards the book.

I have asked Fenn in the past if, since the poem is on the internet, do you need the book at all to solve it.
He said no, you won't need the book if you already have the poem.

RE: Simplify
@filmguy - You believe that? FF told me the opposite. I'm sticking with the books TTOTC & TFTW, but if you only want to work from the poem ... more power to ya. No one here is a "poem purist". Those who say, "I only work with the poem" are mistaken. They also have the blogs, the stories online, the interviews, FF's statements, pictures, & many other avenues of info.

I hope everyone listens to & believes ... YOU. Please keep every searcher convinced that they ONLY need the poem. That will eliminate the competition for me. Go ahead, filmguy ... knock 'em down like ducks in a shooting gallery!

Please forgive me if I sound mean or sarcastic. That is NOT my intent. I believe with all my soul that TTOTC is necessary for solving the poem. Get the book, read the book, analyze the aberrations. It's the ONLY way!

That is so true. Smile

Need? He has said all you need is the poem. But, I didn’t see him say someone with only the poem is likely to solve it. Didn’t he say somewhere that the person likely to solve it will have read the book and poem multiple times? My take is you don’t “need” the book to solve the poem and similarily you don’t need a fishing line, hook, bait or a net to catch a fish but it sure as heck makes it a lot easier. There really isn’t a right answer. Someone could read the poem and perhaps just figure it all out eventually. Einstein figured out quite a few things. I guess you really just never know until you know. And none of us will know until someone actually does it.

RE: Simplify
Yes, because Fenn goes around talking with hidden meaning in every-day conversation.

Perhaps searchers need to simplify their thinking and not always look for words "hidden" within words and context.
