Usually, when we hear or read something new,
we just compare it to our own ideas.
If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct.
If it is not, we say it is incorrect.
In either case, we learn nothing.

looking for the "bug7baconinthepan.pdf" file, the ONLY result returned is this website. I'm afraid "falseprophet" is very poorly named, as this is one of the most common titles in the known universe. Returns many, many, MANY not even vaguely related results.
Rather annoying, as I would imagine someone around here is bound to have retained a copy of this.
Oh well. I'll have another sift through the "false prophet" results later, but I don't have much hope for this one. Again, a shame as the little blurb makes it seem interesting.....
Don't know if you're familiar with the WaybackMachine or not, but you can click at the top of the page which has links to other dates that the WaybackMachine was able to snapshot the same, and or other pages of the particular site you might be viewing...
I did just that, and was able to arrive at a page where the site's owner did a bit more than just give a page where you can buy his so-called "code keys."
I didn't do much more than read some of the text that was on that first page I arrived at, but you may able to read more on that page than I did, or perhaps even find a way to launch yourself to other archived pages from that same site. At any rate, I'll paste the link to use below..... Good Luck! Oh, and be sure to select the entire length of the URL, copy it, and then paste it into the browser to get it to work.
I'm not impressed with the Pan result. Seems like someone is just trying to scam a few bucks on this. "Code Keys" --- not likely.
I agree the Pan thing wasn't a super-impressive example, but to me it hinted at the possibility of some interesting observations, at the least. Further, the first posts in this thread seemed to imply some of the pdfs on that site might have been free.
I did a search for the author of that site, Michael West, and didn't come up with a lot. There is a guy by that name who does some acoustic Beatles covers, so it may even be the same dude, but nothing relating to this, as far as I could tell.
Anyway... one of the things that really grabbed my attention about this, is that Mr. West here makes a few comments which tie to a thread (here at NIR) which really grabbed my attention yesterday. So much so that I obsessively read through all 21 pages of it, plus repeatedly googled for more info.
The thread I'm referencing is the "Solution to The Sgt. Pepper Enigma" started by Jarface. It can be found here:
What this guy mentioned, on one of the pages of this now-downed website was first this:
Read the Introduction, below, first. Then visit the Catalog of Gold Bugs. This week, read the first two Chapters for free!
If you read the thread I linked above, you will see that Jarface ties the Beatles and Sgt Pepper to the story, "The Gold Bug," by Pepper Cover Alum, Edgar Allan Poe. West goes on to write:
What if this music had the wisdom of the Bible, the beautiful universal themes of Shakespeare and the energy of H. G. Wells or Stephen Crane? What if it possessed the incredible sex appeal of Mae West and the terrible ghoulishness of Edgar Allen Poe? Throw in the revolutionary zeal of Karl Marx and the intellectual prowess of Aldous Huxley and William S. Burroughs. Add the jungle beat of Tarzan and the topsy turvydom of Lewis Carroll.....
....Ancient Egyptians used their religious symbols to impress the public. Priests stood with their staffs in front of the sphinx - a chimera made of parts from man, lion and eagle. This simple recombination of three of their old animal totems charmed the populous. The beast was magical, a creation that couldn't exist in nature. The priests had made it real in the form of a huge statue. The people were wowed, and the priests wielded power.....
....The key to the Beatles' great storehouse of magic is in the picture on the jacket of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Pay most attention to the authors among the artists in the picture. The stories written by these men and women are the Odes of Pan of which Lennon sings at the end of "One After 909," from Let It Be. Oh Danny boy! the Odes of Pan are calling... Why the Irish tune? James Joyce, the quintessential Irishman said that he, an Irishman, would teach the English to use their language!
If you take a look through the Jarface thread linked above, you might see how I would draw similarities. This guy brings up the obvious Carroll connections, too.
Hm... maybe I should post this in that other thread.....
