So I found this on another message board.
Combining 'Viginti Tres' & 'Wings For Marie' onto 1 track that's played simultaneously with '10,000 Days' creates a whole new wall of sound that synchs up exactly at 9:14 for the remainder of the song.
1st off, you can download a mixed version & listen for yourself here (please note that I didn't post the .mp3, someone else did. the latter part is off by a split second, but you'll still get the gist, remember, 9:14 is when it gets synched): http://www.savefile.com/files/6920219
The 3 songs combined are:
Track #3 - Wings for Marie (pt 1) 6:11
Track #4 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) 11:13
Track #11 - Viginti Tres 5:02
The duration of the last track is 5:02. The duration for track #3 'Wings For Marie" is 6:11. If you add those times 2gether, it equals 11:13, the exact duration of Track #4 "10,000 Days". If you do it well, the final strophe of the both parts of Wings (Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescence. / Difficult to see you in this light.) should sound at the same time.
Note the numbers used in the 3 song time lengths above - 11, 13, 5, 6, & 2. 11:13 is the total running time of '10,000 Days', and the U.S. release date was 5/2/6
THE DEAL w/ '23'
23 is the number for synchronicity (see Wikepedia 23(numerology) & synchronicity). It is also the title of the last track (in Latin) 'Viginti Tres'
23 pops up alot on this album. In no particular order of importance:
In the remix of all 3 songs playing, at exactly 9:14 (9+14=23) Wings pts 1 & 2 synch up for the remainder of the song (which, oddly enough, on the mixed .mp3 I found, the total synch time plays for 2 minutes & 3 seconds, aka 23)
There are 11 tracks on the album. The hidden mixed song would be track 12. 11+12=23.
The hidden song is '2' tracks playing simultaneous created from '3' songs. 23.
The last track could also be written as "11. 23". This could also possibly represent the beginning of a Fibonacci sequence, 1,1,2,3
BLAIR's RECENT NEWS POSTINGS
Blair's last 4 updates before the 'Rosetta Stone' rant all have the same time labeled as 2:05. Break it down like this
2=1+1, or 11
5=2+3, or 23.
Blair's 'Rosetta Stone' rant has a post time of 11:05. Again, 5=2+3, 23. 11 & 23. The last track is 11. 'Viginti Tres' (aka 23)
On 5/5, the original puzzle posting from Blair stated the clocks as being '11:07, or 1:17' For the hidden song, it's a combo of song #'s 3,4 & 11. Songs 3 & 4 are techincally one song called 'Wings For Marie', so 3+4=7. 7 and 11.
THE BAND & CD PHOTOS
****This by far is the one section that's open to many a theory. Here's my take on the significance of the pics.******
Everyone's focusing on the objects IN the photos, not what the pictures ARE.
They are 2 separate pics, slightly different that combine to form one 3-D-like image.
The Mixed/Hidden song is 2 separate tracks, slightly different, that combine to form a 3-D-song.
2 images are needed for the 3-D illusion, one for your left eye and one for your right eye. 2 tracks to make the 3-D illusion, one for the left ear, and one for the right.
The album cover looks like 3 heads that combine to 1. You're combining 3 songs to make 1.
So, what about the stuff that IS IN the pictures??
Well, if we're looking for clues, then you could subscribe to the '11/13' candle theory proposed in Justin's pic (remember the length of the song is 11:13).
Or the supposed '23' in the flowers in Danny's photo.
Or did you notice that in Maynard's pic there's '2' phones, and '3' glasses that have wine poured into them. 23.
Or that in Adam's pic, there are '2' lights on the wall and the skeleton appears to be holding up '3' fingers? 23.
But the real kicker regarding the band photos?? The presence of '11' in all the band pics, in the exact same place.
Adam - 11 beakers on the table, lower right of pic.
Maynard - 11 on the clock, lower right of pic.
Justin - 11 candles, on the (yep!) lower right of pic.
Danny - The stems of the flowers appear to make an '11', right side of pic.
