|The Sixth Glyph
(6/9/01) I have to admit I regret being at work when this was solved. I'm afraid I'm not going to give proper credit for the solution, so I'd like to say "way to go" to mnemesis for solving this glyph. Now to explain what the glyph ment. The glyph represented the New York City Subway System. The once supposed cordinate plane represents the intersection of C, 8, E and 14 (It was Cuneiform). With 10 being at the top of the glyph and 14 being at the bottom. The only line to run through such an intersection is the "L" line. Worse yet Chealse was taunting us the whole time with her friend "Elle" and her glowing sunglasses. I would also like to point out that not every number was required to solve the glyph. You can click here to follow the posts that solve the glyph.
(6/9/01) On a personal note, please no more emails on the use of "e" in Calculus, It had been 2 years since I had taken a Calculus class and I couldn't remember the exact way "e" was used so I didn't way to list an incorrect use.
(6/6/01) Lord Bulgy writes that the symbol in the first quadrant of the xy coordinate plane is both Japanese and Chinese for "8". The names of numbers are borrowed from the Chinese (except for 4 and 7). So if this is true we now have the speed of light, 8, ~2.72, and what could be some variation of Cuneiform. Oddly Bungie is not one to make such a visual mistake. <;; hardly looks like any form of Cuneiform I have seen.
(6/3/01) Could "<::" be Sumerian Cuneiform? Tom Van Sinden thinks so, and sends in a URL to a page all about it.
(6/3/01) Thanks to Chris Eager and Damien Sorresso for pointing out my blunder in numbering the coordinate plane. They also write to say that "c" stands for the speed of light, and "e" is approximately 2.72. It seems everyone remembers using "e" in Calc class, but for the love of God we can't remember what it was used for.
(6/2/01) Is the "/ \" looking symbol really Japanese for 8? Dave sheds some light on this saying "I don't think the 2nd symbol is "8" in Japanese.
(6/2/01) Jon Chambers asks could "<::" stand for "Less than 4 (pfhor)"?
(5/30/01) Both "c" and "e" are mathematical terms, and they are found in the second and forth quadrants of a coordinate plane.
(5/30/01) The 2 lines in the 2nd quadrant of the coordinate plane I have been told are Japanese for "8", if so this leaves the only symbol unaccounted for is the "<::" looking one in the 4th quadrant.
(5/29/01) The sum of this glyph's numbers add up to 224.
