Recently rethinking home of Brown.

RE: Recently rethinking home of Brown.
I am about to suggest here another method of reading and interpreting FF's poem especially directed to the 8th(and also the 9th) line in this discussion, namely 'Put in below the home of Brown'...It is not my intention of messing with the poem, but to engage your brain in another possible way to group words or phrases and derive separate or diverging interpretations of FF's word play in his poem...I hope you will read and think deeply about other possibilities you may have overlooked...Discussion or criticism is appreciated as is staying on topic if you choose to reply...All is IMO of course and all I ask is that you think about it...

The word 'Brown' in the poem is capitalized specifically for the purpose of suggesting a proper noun...It is a diversionary tactic which has worked admirably...And prefacing it with 'the home of' has further encouraged an endless search for a specific domicile or place of habitation of a living entity of some sort...Nothing could be further from the truth IMO...It simply does not exist as a place on the landscape that will aid you in coming closer to the treasure location...Not to say it doesn't have significance on another level...I can see where it may have a duality of meaning once you arrive on site...FF has not intentionally misdirected you but he will allow you to lead yourself astray...It's part of his game, his rules...

So, if FF has said that everything you needed to locate the treasure is in the poem then then 'home of Brown' is in the poem...This is 'Brown's residence...This is where 'Brown' lives and here only...'the home of Brown' won't be found on a map or on the landscape...Its home is right where you see it and must not change nor move out of its place("Don't mess with my poem!")...

There is hidden purpose behind the grammatical location of the WORD 'Brown' and capitalization is simply not significant, just as 'answer(s)' being singular or plural in the 5th stanza makes no difference in interpreting the poem(IMO this particular line, #19 may be discarded entirely, BUT that is another topic & another time!)...Focusing on and devoting so much research and discussion to this simple 4 word phrase has successfully diverted virtually all attention from the important words in this line, which are - 'Put in below'...Important IMO to finding the search location which FF has hidden in his poem...

Dropping 'below the home of Brown'(in the poem) to the next line we find the words 'From there' and 'it's no place for the meek'...All one line of the stanza of course but you will notice I divided the wording where a comma may possibly have created a more grammatically correct pause and better sentence structure if reading the line as a full sentence in itself had occurred(When beginning a sentence with an adverb or a prepositional phrase, a comma may separate it from the subject and verb.)...See?...Just bear with me here for a moment...

Accepting that Brown's home is right where you see it(for now), we can take the words 'Put in below' and pair them with the first words of the next(9th) line 'From there' to obtain a reading as - 'put in below from there'...This is 'below the home of Brown', so what/where are we 'putting' in from?...I would suggest that this is hidden in the word 'there'...So what do we find in or may we take from this word that may possibly be of significance?...Go deep out of the box to see if you can discover this for yourself...IMO it is vital that you first - find the 'key', find the one and only wwwh, follow the instructions given and it may show itself to you...These are also in the poem as FF said...

The remaining words of line 9 - '...it's no place for the meek' may also be READ as a complete sentence in itself regardless of FF's choice in punctuating the stanza...For instance, the choice of a semicolon after the second line when EACH line of the 3rd stanza #9 ->#12 could stand alone as a complete sentence...This phrase also carries hidden significance in approaching 'The end is ever drawing nigh'(duality of meaning again)...Remember: the poem is very carefully constructed by an architect who worked long and hard on its structure to achieve a cloak of invisibility to conceal what lies hidden within the poem; namely, the location of the treasure chest...

We must pull back this cloak to unveil the secret interior...To do so you must find the method FF employed to hide this information...It appears as a thing of beauty when finally disclosed...

Comments??... Smile

I can say as IMO... that they're definitely is a reason for the capitalization of Brown. No Brown canyons, no Clara Brown, no Molly Brown, no Brown trout. It is actually capitalized for two reasons. Layer 1 and Layer 2. Each one points to each other.

RE: Recently rethinking home of Brown.
Santa Fe is the home of Fenn, so it was put in above the home of Fenn and below the home of Brown.

I'd say more but I don't want to give the local troll any hints.

RE: Recently rethinking home of Brown.
Fenn has said that the treasure does not "relate to a structure" so if "Home of Brown" does not relate to a structure, that could mean that home likely means origin or beginning of. In that sense, we are left with "Origin of Brown" and for Fenn, an art collector, this likely refers to brown's origin, a sort of pigment. I've read several of the brown pigments from nature, and I must say it has some interesting connotations. What do you folks think of this theory?

RE: Recently rethinking home of Brown.
VERY new to this but when he said the treasure does not relate to a structure, did he mean that all clues had nothing to do with structures, or just the actual location of the treasure? Based on the proper use of capitalisation, I would say "Brown" is related to a person and potentially a structure, but if he meant all clues, that theory could be out to lunch.

Options
1. I am just looking at physical places, land, or potentially structures of people associated or named "Brown."

2. "Brown" things like trout or bears, etc. Rivers, Caves, etc.

3. Then there is "Brown" coloured things.

4. Things I haven't even thought of yet.


TOO many options!! lol
