原始的なコンパス

これらの文献の回収に尽力してくれたオブシディアン・エクスプローラー諸君に感謝したい。

オブシディウスが言及していたものは漢王朝期の中国で製作された極めて原始的なコンパスに違いないと考えている。今ではオブシディウスがこれを見かけたのはシルクロードでのことだった可能性が高い。もちろん、シルクロードとは実際にはひとつの道ではなく、交易網だ。

ローマ人が探検に乗り気でなかったのは確かだが、それでも交易路には関心を示し図化しようとしていたのだろう。ご存じない方もいるだろうが、ブラジル海岸線で明らかになってきたローマ貿易船の関与した興味深い報道は数多い。

確かにローマ人は探検に熱心ではなかったのかもしれないが、それでも広域へと進めてはいたわけだ...

また、私はスザンナの手に渡った鍵のかかった箱についても関心を寄せている。どうやらその鍵はボローニャのどこかにあるようだ。

以前このような手法で秘匿され送られてきたメッセージを知っている。少々時代遅れな手法ではあるが、うまくいった。できることならその情報源を知りたいし、私の考えているとおりの人物かどうか確かめてみるとしよう。

これはハンク・ジョンソンがちょうど明かしたことなのだが、オブシディウスの探検で明らかになったことの解説とともに、ボローニャのミッションで鍵が回収されるとの考えを示した...その鍵こそがスザンナ・モイヤーの手元にある鍵の掛けられた箱を開け放つものと私は確信している。

Thanks, #ObsidianExplorers for recovering all these pages.

It seems clear to me that Obsidius was referring to very primitive compasses created in China during the Han Dynasty. It's quite possible that Obsidius saw these in his travels up what we now know as the Silk Road, which, of course, wasn't really a road, but a network of trading routes. 

While it's clear that the Romans were not keen on exploration, they were curious about trade routes and might well have attempted to chart them. For those of you who haven't seen this yet, there was quite an interesting news story involving a Roman trading vessel which might have been found of the coast of Brazil.

While they may not have been keen on exploration, they certainly covered some distance...  

Also, I'm curious about this locked box that Susanna has gotten a hold of. Apparently the key is in Bologna somewhere.

I've seen a protected message transmitted this way before. A little old school, but it works. I'd be curious to see if we can learn the source so I can see if it's who I'm thinking of.

This just came in via Hank Johnson, some commentary on recent discoveries in The Explorations of Obsidius, as well as his thoughts on the mission in Bologna to recover a certain key... I believe this key will unlock a lockbox currently in Susanna Moyer's possession.
