Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/18/12

The only Zen you can find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there.”   —   Robert M. Pirsig

(This was a deceptively tricky cryptoquote!  It starts out easy enough, but then I got a little hung up.  Then, I thought I had it right, with the third and fourteenth word being MEN, but then I couldn’t complete MOUNTAINS.  I thought MOUNTAINS could possibly be FOUNTAINS, but then FIND and OF would have been wrong.  I knew MEN didn’t fit with IS, but you can’t always count on good grammar with quotations.  I thought, for a second, that possibly there was some kind of typo, here, but I didn’t want to give in to that notion.  Finally, I decided MOUNTAINS was correct and I needed something else for MEN.  I went through the entire alphabet – and surprisingly, this quote uses 20 out of 26 letters – until I hit upon ZEN!  The funny thing is I actually read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, probably 30, or so, years ago.  Who knows if I even grasped its meaning, back then?!  Today I’d say, there’s nothing wrong with making a searchful type of journey, but ultimately what you are seeking lies within, and you are really on a journey of self-awareness.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
