Music of the Cubes

For all of its faults, Dale Browns The DaVinci Code has some intriguing locations. I remember reading about the Rosslyn Chapel in the book, described here, as a magnificent chapel of carved stones. Each surface full of intricate and obscure carved figures and shapes. In Brown’s reality, the carvings had a lot to do with the resolution of the book, but in the real world, scholars have labored for centuries to try and decode the meaning of the shapes.

It looks like someone has finally succeeded. The Rosslyn Stave Angel purports to show the decoding of the symbols into a musical language. How they did this is revealed in the video and I won’t ruin it, but it’s an incredible bit of cyphering- just the kind of thing that I love. Check it out.
