I agree.

I thinkSad1) it's natural (2)the distance from the chest to the blaze is zero and (3)finding the blaze is not a great deal of help.

But then why would it be? It's not as if he actually says anything about "finding the blaze."

Okay, you have to explain this to me.
How can finding the blaze not be a great deal of help when the distance from the chest to the blaze is zero?
If the distance were zero, when you find the blaze you would find the chest.

Exactly! When you "found" (i.e. create) the blaze, you have 45% more of the poem to finish.

Good luck!

So you disagree with JB's theory of zero distance between blaze and chest?

RE: The Blaze (man made or not)
if the distance were zero than the entirety of stanza 4 was written for what purpose

i don't think so

Of course. JB is pretty smart, but completely wrong on this one.

RE: The Blaze (man made or not)
It has been suggested that there are several "layers" to the poem, and
that various items (such as hoB) could be defined in more than one way,
while still functioning well in a successful solve. I don't disagree with this.

The blaze, though, is more specific. I think that only one thing (and it's
not man-made) qualifies as being the blaze as intended by the poem.
This is why the poem says "been wise". If you're much younger than FF, you're at a significant disadvantage in solving this part of the poem. But somebody like Mindy or Jonsey, each of whom appears to be an eager researcher, could probably therefore compensate pretty well for the
"age-related" disadvantage.

I could "flesh out" my argument fore all this, but at this TIME, wood
rather emulate "the silent spot" from an old TV show (this is another
example of how being kinda old can be an advantage). Perhaps "y'all"
will appreciate some of what I've said hear, as well as noticing my use
of some -- shall we say -- "popular words" used in FF's writings.

RE: The Blaze (man made or not)
what do you think about the idea of the ax man looking up at a false blaze

hence the need for the ax

i learned early on that recognition can be misleading

but may also represent an important riddle of the poem

Yes, I appreciate what you wrote here...I mean in addition to the double negative.

It kinda relates to a post I was going to write today. I find it interesting that f may not have, or probably did not, name the correct wwwh in the poem before the line biwwwh. Why can he get away with not formally naming the correct wwwh before the 5th line of the poem? And why would he choose to not name it before that clue line? (This assumes the correct wwwh has a formal name).

I came to the conclusion that hoB is where f formally clues us in on the formal name of wwwh. You’re just on the other side of it when you get to the spot of ‘Put In below the home of Brown’.

Cause in the end, if one is to go with confidence when finding the tc and you got to nail down the first clue then this theory projects that the answer to the first clue has to be formally named in the poem even if by hidden means.

Simple, there is more than one blaze

Is this your explanation as well John Brown?
