    That's the thing about candles, "manufactured" in so many different aromas, decoration, etc., just depends on "who manufactured them" and "what they were trying to achieve in the end." But you are right, sooner or later they all burn out and there's just a pile of wax in the end.

    What candle? Tangible or non-tangible? Pics, data , evidence, anything but words from a fictional story , or the usual someday you'll see... for how many more years of nothing??

    For many there will always be, "I'll prove it tomorrow." What they fail to realize is that if they're still looking for that provenance then what have they built everything around so far? This is why there will always be that tomorrow.

    Ah, but seriously, it just seems that folks keep pushing forward with the notion of, "I'll find it and then I'll show them!" But the problem with this thinking is that if you don't already have it (provenance) right from the very start then there's no possible way of knowing if you're even pursuing the correct path. Cipher solutions, as already discussed, are a dime a dozen and these solutions can be manufactured in an endless number of ways, and yet here again, no provenance to even ensure that you're on the correct path here as well, or that your solution is anything other then a simple meaningless creation within all the random numbers. So I just don't get it, all of these certain claims that can't possibly be accurate without that critical and required provenance being in place before anything else.

    And those hearty captains were in search of what? The Fountain of Youth. The Seven Golden Cities. Etc., etc., etc. At least as they were sailing they could still see landscape/seascape out in front of them, "so discovering provenance as they proceeded." The Fountain of Youth, The Seven Golden Cities,...."just treasure stories."

    Many need to realize, there are a whole spectrum of Treasure Stories. Some are interesting and some are boring. Regardless they are either real or fiction. There are, there must be, very interesting, well written stories that are just plain fiction. These are the ones that you have to be careful with. They are full of embellishments both intentional and derived over the years. If you believe one of these stories, ask yourself why you believe it? Why is any of it true?

    Yep, you really do have to investigate the origin of the story itself first, then spend some time investigating the alleged details within that story. Most, as you say, are just creative treasure stories from the imaginations of 20th-21st century man. The Beale story is no different in these regards as it contains all of the typical earmarks of a manufactured treasure tale. Unfortunately, as these details become exposed many true believers respond in the same childish fashion that we're seeing today, instead of posting relevant content they start posting desperate and aggressive and fruitless attacks in an effort to deflect the current flow of those contrary facts and details. Of course all of those pointless efforts only further expose the obvious faults and flaws in their own logic and it most certainly detracts from their own integrity, and not from those they are attempting to target. Most folks, however, are wise to all of this these days and they see through these desperate antics pretty quickly. Most don't even bother to read what they post anymore and if they do it's just for laughs and entertainment.

    With the very noticeable lack of recent activity of these Beale threads, it appears the candle has been burnt to the end.
