    My friends,
    
    You have heard the message Pink Floyd has delivered,
    but have you listened?
    
    Perhaps I can be your guide, but I will not solve the enigma for you.
    
    All of you must open your minds and communicate with each other,       
    as this is the only way the answers can be revealed.
    
    I may help you, but only if obstacles arise.
    
    Listen.
    
    Read.
    
    Think.
    
    Communicate.
    
    If I don't promise you the answers would you go.

    So it seems some of you have speculated with the past and
    found nothing.  Fair enough.
    
    But, is it impossible to believe things have changed?
    
    You're all so concerned with my identity - but you're only
    just shooting the messenger.  The message itself is what's
    important, and not who delivers it.
    
    I believe some of you may be beginning to understand.

          Do you think that I know something you don't know.

    Some of you are asking thoughtful questions (a tip of the hat to
    Geoff Lee and Duncan Anker, among others, who have contacted me
    directly).  Now, let me provide a few answers that will perhaps
    inspire more of you.
    
    
    First of all, as you read further, you will better understand
    why my identity cannot be revealed.  Let it be said again that I
    am a messenger, simple as that.  I cannot tell you who has sent
    me, but I can say that I was directed to you because you're a
    strong collective body of Pink Floyd fans and experts.
    
    
    Those of your newsgroup who have chosen to "flame" my postings
    because I won't divulge my identity are clearly choosing to
    focus on the messenger and not what has been disclosed in the
    messages.  This is unfortunate.  I would like to think that for
    all your time spent listening, discussing and thinking about
    Pink Floyd, you would be drawn to something unique and
    potentially extraordinary.
    
    
    More importantly, to those of you who have been following my
    earlier messages, do not be intimidated by the jeers of the
    others.  Have faith and be assured that what I am about to
    explain is very real.
    
    
    AS SOME OF YOU HAVE SUSPECTED, "The Division Bell" is not
    like its predecessors.  Although all great music is subject
    to multiple interpretations, in this case there is a central
    purpose and a designed solution.  For the ingenious person
    (or group of persons) who recognizes this - and where this
    information points to - a unique prize has been secreted.
    
    
              How and Where?
    
    
              The Division Bell
    
    
              Listen again
    
    
              Look again
    
    
              As your thoughts will steer you
    
    
              Leading the blind while I stared out the steel
                in your eyes
    
    
              Lyrics, artwork and music will take you there
    
    
    FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, I have watched and found that you have
    speculated on one level on meanings.  However, no one
    among you has yet discovered the beginnings of what has
    always been there and the unusual challenge that has been
    included.  So now I have been given a task -- as your
    "guide" -- to begin pointing you in the right direction.
    
    
    LET ME BE CLEAR: For those of you willing to think through
    this perplexing and intricate problem, a singular prize
    awaits.  But, the challenge is accompanied by a
    particularly complex solution.  For those of you who
    choose to ignore or even ridicule this posting, it is
    your loss.  It will be your own skepticism that precludes
    you from participating.
    
    
    If you choose to discuss your progress openly on this
    forum, I will be able to help steer you from time to time.
    
    
    CAREFULLY REVIEW my previous messages and this very
    posting for additional help and a place to begin.
    
    
    Best of luck.

    While I am encouraged by the positive response to my
    last post, I understand that many of you still doubt
    my authenticity.  It is for those of you who now believe,
    as well as for those of you who still may doubt, that I
    have arranged for an extremely visible and conclusive
    demonstration of my truthfulness.
    
    
    To validate the trust of those who believe, as well as
    to reconcile the doubt of others, I have gone to great
    lengths to plan the following display of communication:
    
    Monday, July 18
    East Rutherford, New Jersey
    Approximately 10:30pm
    
    Flashing white lights.
    
    
    There is an enigma.
    
    
    Trust.

          similarity in signature is purely coincidental.
          I have never posted anywhere other that here.

    you're a strong collective body of Pink Floyd fans and experts.
    
    
    Those of your newsgroup who have chosen to "flame" my postings
    because I won't divulge my identity are clearly choosing to
    focus on the messenger and not what has been disclosed in the
    messages.  This is unfortunate.  I would like to think that
    for all your time spent listening, discussing and thinking
    about Pink Floyd, you would be drawn to something unique and
    and potentially extraordinary.
    
    
    More importantly, to those of you who have been following
    my earlier messages, do not be intimidated by the jeers of
    the others.  Have faith and be assured that what I am about
    to explain is very real.
    
    
    AS SOME OF YOU HAVE SUSPECTED, "The Division Bell" is not
    like its predecessors.  Although all great music is subject
    to multiple interpretations, in this case there is a central
    purpose and a designed solution.  For the ingenious person
    (or group of persons) who recognizes this - and where this
    information points to - a unique prize has been secreted.
    
    
        How and Where?
    
    
        The Division Bell
    
    
        Listen again
    
    
        Look again
    
    
        As your thoughts will steer you
    
    
        Leading the blind while I stared out the steel
          in your eyes.
    
    
        Lyrics, artwork and music will take you there
    
    
    FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, I have watched and found that you
    have speculated on one level of meanings.  However, no
    one among you has yet discovered the beginnings of what
    has always been there and the unusual challenge that has
    been included.  So now I have been given a task - as
    your "guide" - to begin pointing you in the right
    direction.
    
    
    LET ME BE CLEAR: For those of you willing to think through
    this perplexing and intricate problem, a singular prize
    awaits.  But, the challenge is accompanied by a
    particularly complex solution.  For those of you who choose
    to ignore or even ridicule this posting, it is your loss.
    It will be your own skepticism that precludes you from
    participating.
    
    
    If you choose to discuss your progress openly on this
    forum, I will be able to help steer you from time to
    time.
    
    
    CAREFULLY REVIEW my previous messages and this very
    posting for additional help and a place to begin.
    
    
    Best of luck.

          Any similarity in signature is purely coincidental.
          I have never posted anywhere other than here.

        Congratulations to all those who have newly begun the search. 
    Many of you correctly identified my signal last Monday (7/18).  As
    promised, this gesture should serve as visible proof of my
    truthfulness and of the enigma's existence.  Contrary to recent
    postings, this beacon has never appeared previously.  If necessary,
    check your available resources to verify this fact.
     
     
        For those of you who still number among the non-believers, I
    have provided verification of my credentials and I am finished
    attempting to appease you.  Originally, the newsgroup requested
    evidence of my legitimacy and, in fairness to what I was asking of
    you, I complied.  I believe I have been generous in what I've
    offered.  I have extended you all an invitation into something
    exclusive and unique - a token of appreciation for your continued
    Pink Floyd interest.  However, some of you still distrust the proof
    that has been clearly shown to you.
     
     
        An integral part of solving this enigma is a willingness to
    imagine and speculate creatively.  While some of you still seem
    resistant to engage in such endeavors, I have no further
    inclination to try and prove a claim you will simply never choose
    to accept - regardless of what efforts I undertake to convince you
    otherwise.  I am not willing to engage in a futile battle with
    skeptics.  You will either have to contend with what proof has been
    supplied or return to your regular newsgroup dialogue and discuss
    whatever matters you feel secure are within your complete sphere of
    understanding.  Sadly, there will be no part in the enigma for you. 
    Stand aside, and let those who have demonstrated the incentive to
    embrace this challenge with an eager and open mind pass by
    unencumbered by your flames and arrows.
     
     
     
        BEST OF LUCK to all who have begun researching the available
    clues!  I promise that you have embarked on what will ultimately be
    an enriching and fascinating journey.  Judging from recent
    postings, many of you are asking intelligent questions and raising
    provocative issues.  Progress is being made.  Do not be frustrated
    in your initial attempts.  Recall my earlier caution that the
    solution to this enigma will not be discovered easily.  It was
    designed to be unlocked only with time and healthy perseverance.
     
     
        Your newfound persistence has paid off and, in turn, let me
    provide a few more hints to orient your research.  Though the
    newsgroup discourse is generally moving in a positive direction,
    examine in particular the posts of Matt Denault, mcginni, John Take
    and Evan Coyne Maloney for helpful clues.  Well done people!
     
     
        I will also provide some new data to work with:
     
        My friends
     
        * A recipe for a solution
     
        Review the division bell material
     
        Orient yourselves a first time, then
     
        Open your minds again a second time to truly move ahead 
     
        Notice everything that has been presented
         
        since all the necessary Evidence has been supplied
     
        Direct yourselves with communication
     
     
        : and two more -
     
     
        Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in your eyes
        (this clue has already been posted, but has not yet been
         thoroughly addressed)
         
        A question: what exactly is a division bell and where could   
        this lead your thoughts?
     
     
     
        Please note that my communication with you will now become less
    frequent.  Recall what has been previously explained: "I may help
    you, but only if obstacles arise."  I was not sent to directly
    supervise, nor to instruct or acknowledge your progress on a
    regular basis.  I was only dispatched to begin guiding you in the
    right direction.  Clearly, many of you have followed my lead and
    now the onus is on you to make further inroads into solving this
    enigma.  Be prepared to travel!  Your effort - albeit demanding -
    will be rewarded with a treasure waiting to be unearthed.  Make no
    mistake; this prize is real and certainly very tangible.  Organize
    yourselves formally, plan a true method of investigation, choose
    your leaders.  Rest assured that I am always watching and will
    certainly return to aid in the event of any serious deadlock. 
    However, this challenge was intended to be met by you - the Pink
    Floyd experts.  My role is clearly secondary.
     
     
        Lastly, for those of you who are still concerned with unveiling
    my identity, I have repeatedly stated that this matter is not at
    issue.  "It is the message that is important, and not who delivers
    it."  Although this notion seems to cause you endless irritation,
    my anonymity is my right (as it would be yours).  I have always
    understood that the Internet was founded on the precepts of
    respecting other community members.  I would only hope that those
    nay-sayers respect the rights of the voluntary enigma participants
    and my continued right to privacy as well.  You may not agree with
    what I have to say, but I still have a right to say it without
    hindrance.
     
         
     
        Best wishes to all in your search!
