The Rule of Colel and Manuscript 2344

Walter C Cambra has sent “The Rule of Colel and Manuscript 2344” which is now in the collection at the Reading Room. This essay explores the topic of a manuscript with the number of the beast from Revelation 13:18 as 665 and since the “rule of colel” offers “one unit can be added to, or subtracted from. the gematria value of a word” that there is a simple equivalency resolution to the apparent difference from the “better attested and well-known ‘666’”.

Knight’s Tour Transposition cryptogram

Walter C Cambra has sent a single sheet with a Knight’s Tour Transposition cryptogram, which was published in American Cryptogram Association, Sept-2013–2013, and presented to the Grand Master of the English Lodge AMORC, and now in the collection at the Reading Room.

Walter C Cambra Knight's Tour Transposition

“The enclosed cryptogram is one example of what is termed a ‘Knight’s Tour Transposition’ which involves a chess piece (‘Knight’) moving on a route through all sixty-four squares of the chess board in which it lands once-and-only-once in each of the sixty-four squares!

In the enclosed example the ‘con’ is solved by discovering the route taken by the Knight. For easy orientation simply follow the route from square numbered ‘ONE’ through square numbered ‘SIXTY-FOUR’. In doing so you will find the ‘SOL’ (solution) to the ‘CON’!”

Walter C Cambra Of Prophets and Prophesy

“Detailed reading and analysis of the Old Testament books suggest that the term ‘prophet’ refers to a character who voices definitive political policy from within the context of his own generational milieu, rather than the traditional notion of them as visionaries into the circumstances of distant centuries.”

The Book of Daniel: Philosophy of History or Eschatological Fiction? by Walter C Cambra, a 1993 thesis, approved by Jacob Needleman and Donald Provence, has arrived at the Reading Room courtesy of the author.

Walter C Cambra The Book of Daniel

“This thesis attempts to demonstrate that the canonical Book of Daniel is an example of what Friedrich Nietzsche refers to as a text based upon a morality of resentment. Furthermore, this thesis argues that many symbols in the Book of Daniel are based upon material that has an historical milieu originating in the sixth century B.C. and which was incorporated into the redacted text of the second century B.C. producing a new eschatological scheme.”

The Book of Revelation: Deciphered

The Book of Revelation: Deciphered by Walter C Cambra, a 1985 monograph, has arrived at the Reading Room courtesy of the author.

Walter C Cambra The Book of Revelation: Deciphered

“After detailed reading and analysis of The Book of Revelation, a deciphering of the enigmatic style and symbols reveals the work to be an esoteric account of the Jewish captivity in Babylon during the reign of Neo-Babylonian kings from Nebuchadnezzer through Belshazzar, when the Jewish House of Jesus returned to the New Jerusalem after Babylon was conquered by the Persians and Medes.”
