PEB line 6
John Bjarne Grover
In this article I tell of a potential function encoded in the lines 6 of the 365 sonnet-poems of my 'POLAKK English Bloggi' (2010) = PEB. The theory can be tested against personal data which the reader has access to - but then of course the reader must have the book in hand, which means that the book must be published for the public to be able to get hold of a copy. The data I report is very meagre and I present it as a possible hypothesis only - not as a mature theory. The procedure of computation is likewise a hypothesis only - but there seems to be some basis for it.
I have shown how line 4 in PEB seems to amount to a political theory - probably in line with TEQ function/book 4. The theory is that each line of PEB corresponds to the similar book or function of TEQ (and, furthermore, when 'Der Dornenstauch' part 3 - 'Linien die prägen die Sterne über uns' - seems to be a miniature TEQ, there is an even more condense and precise articulation of it there - but clearly these are things which can be written by poetic intuition only and not by rational computation). I have now probably solved also the 6th line of the PEB. It seems to be the simple distance between the birthdays of genetic relatives - in some sense of it. That is consonant with the theory that the global function 6 in TEQ (book 6 - 'Orphan and the angels') is about the genetic parents in their care-relation (thereby also potentially culture-preserving for a subset spread over the globe) to a remote child encoded in linguistic ambiguities in the TEQ. The procedure I have arrived at - so far tentatively - for computing the relevance of a potential genetic relation is this:
1) Point of departure is the birthyear of theoretic parent relative to the year 2009 of the authorship of the PEB for finding the offset. For me that is 1957 - hence 2009-1957 = 52 * 0.366 = 19.032 = PEB #20.
2) Compute the exact interval between parent and child birthdays in decimals - then multiply this with 0.366 for number of sonnets. If the interval is e.g. 11 years and 112 days, it will be 11 + 112/366 = 11.0306 years. Multiply this with 0.366 = 4.138 sonnets.
3) Subtract the whole number of sonnets from the offset - for me that will be 20-4 = PEB #16, line 6. Subtract then the fraction converted into sonnet lines by including line 6: 0.138 * 14 lines = 1.932 lines which you subtract from end of line 6 of sonnet 16 - that means about nearly 2 lines from and including line 6 - to the beginning of line 5 in PEB 16 that will be.
4) If what you find there resembles the name of the child, that makes for the theory that the child is a genetic child. This theory builds on assumptions related to the alphabtic mysteries of the blue metre - and cannot be anything like a genome test, of course.
Example: 1) Nelly Sachs was born on 10 december 1891. Offset = 2009-1891 = 118 years * 0.366 = 43.188 = PEB #44. 2) Exact interval in decimals to my birthday = 1957-1892 = 65 years plus the interval from 10 december 1891 to 29 june 1892 = 201 days which means 201/366 = fraction 0.5492 plus the 65 years = 65.5492. Multiply this with 0.366 = 23.991 sonnets. 3) Subtract the 23 whole sonnets from 44 and you come to sonnet #21 - line 6. Multiply the remainder 0.991 with the 14 lines of a sonnet and you get 13.87 lines. That means nearly the beginning of the line PEB #20 line 7 =
still in the arms, still in the laps

What makes of this an impressive proof is Celan's famous line "Ziw, jenes Licht" from his poem 'Nah, im Aortenbogen' from his book "Fadensonnen" (1968) - and in his letter to Sachs of 22 march 1968. She wrote to him on 20 march 1968: "Paul, lieber Paul, ist etwas Gold vom nirgendwo zu dir gekommen, mit dem Herzen möcht ich es zu dir schicken - Nelly". The theory is that this Gold from Nowhere is me - and Celan answered on 22 march 1968 that the mention of this light would be in his next book - which would be this "Ziw, jenes Licht" in his 'Fadensonnen'. There are good reasons to believe that it was me they meant. Read "still in the arms, still in the laps" backwards - and there it is.
Celan was born on 23 november 1920 which gives offset (2009-1920) * 0.366 = 32.574 = PEB #33, while the difference between his and my birthdays comes to the equivalent of 13.394 sonnets = #20 line 6 minus 0.394 * 14 = 5.52 lines - when subtracted from the end of line 6 that leaves about one half of line 1. The full line 1 = "A mystery horse in the garden lane". Line 2 = "it has a brown-red taint".
If 'mixing calendars' by putting offset for Celan at Sachs = #44, the result will land on #31, mid into first line - but if another 10 sonnets are subtracted one gets to the second half of line 1 of #21:
[it was] the second time
There are the two signatures to the end of TEQ book 4 - for the two dates that complete a full year of 'arbitrary' writing - those are "Bébé" on 25 september 1998 and "SEC-quartet" on 26 september 1998. If 'Bébé' is to the meaning of 'still in the arms, still in the laps' of Sachs and for Celan's 'Ziw, jenes Licht', this "SEC-quartet" could apply to "[it was] the second time" for Celan. But that means a gap of 10 sonnets - which could be recognized in the 10 years of their lives - such as the 10 years on the hour or at least day between the arrest of Adolf Eichmann (!) and the death of Nelly Sachs - which was on my official mother's birthday. Hence one could see the theory of these two as my parents as confirmed by these data.
There exists another confirmation of the theory with the help from my TEQ: Gwyneth Katherine Paltrow is born on 27 september 1972 which relative to me gives the line (PEB #14, line 12) "it's borrowing, the feet", cp. "it's Paltrow, Gwyneth" which is impressively precise. Even the 'Katherine' can be read from it. In TEQ #362 there are the following lines (written on 6 december 1998):
I write an ABC,
which my Gwyneth early morning went to.
which should suffice for taking the 'ABC' data (on the hebrew alphabet) from the PEB as evidence for the theory - of the sixth line and even the procedure of computation for finding the right line. The 'tabulator' will then be the jumpy interval of line 6 in the computations. However old your parents are, the interval subtracted will nearly always land you on the same sonnet anyhow - but then the 'tabulator' starts counting from line 6.
The two signatures "Bébé" on 25 september 1998 and "SEC-quartet" on 26 september 1998 completes the year which was started with the first 'arbitrary' poem written on the day 27 september 1997 with Midori's concert in London. Her later recording of Bach and Bartok is relevant to my TEQ book 16. Midori Goto was born on 25 october 1971 = 14 years and 118 days after me = 14.3224 years * 0.366 = 5.242 sonnets which means PEB 20 line 6 minus 5 = PEB 15 line 6 minus 0.242 * 14 = 3.388 lines = poem 15 line 3 - the last third of the line - which is 'colours, more' cp. 'molars core', 'Midori Goto' (her name means 'green each' in japanese) - who must have been conceived around the time when the school dentist was doing his legendary work on my young teeth. The full line 3 is "porcellain, colours, more". The 'porcellain' could of course be about the grandfather, but there could also be an aspect of China there - if it means anything at all.
The conclusion seems to be that PEB line 6 is related to TEQ function 6 - apparently being concerned with genetic relations, but I would assume that it means a relation of 'concern' in the genetic space in some sense of it rather than an outright proof of genetic relatedness.
I notice also a certain relevance of Celan's line ('in the garden lane') relative to me for the phenomenon of the Oslo terror. The evidence of 'Kursk and Cole' rests on my birthdate being on 29 june 1957. This is, as far as I know, also the date when I was born. Computations on genetic relatedness according to the metric given here will depend on the birthday.
I dont know how many of the functions/lines of TEQ/PEB could have been solved by international 'intelligence' with their supercomputers. This knowledge of the poetic functions is contained in the texts and it is I who have written them. I would suppose that it is not permitted to classify such data as secret. Clearly it could be tempting for some administrators to abuse such data for constructing political intrigues for winning elections and things like that. I do not support any such abuse of my work. To see this work of mine turned into a tool for terror-driven politics would be a large step backwards and should not be supported by the voters of democracy or intellectuals of academic institutions or others concerned by these matters.
I add that my general state of wellbeing has been somewhat reduced since about may 2014 when I was attacked by an itch in arms and 'laps' (legs, thighs) which often attacks when I start doing things over again. It is still in the arms, still in the laps, but not as intense as it was in 2014.
