    I just found where someone on reddit had posted "Wave" as the solution two years ago; so; I guess; they win. Although, I don't think their explanation is correct; but I do think "A wave or Waves" is the correct answer. It should be considered solved now.

      Seeing as Wilberforce was butting heads with scientists I think Sine Wave is appropriate answer. He left a legacy that even after 146 years later the socalled experts can't figure out. Those are my favorites. My number 4 explanation is pretty lame but I can refine it and add it to my treasure found book.

        “Money means more to those who don’t have any.

        When I was a kid in the late 1930s, I would mow yards around my neighborhood and get paid a quarter. It was really a big deal to me. I remember keeping my left hand in my pants pocket with the coins held tightly in my fist. I walked straight and whistled because that money represented 5 Wimpy hamburgers, or 4 burgers and a Coke, or 3 burgers, a Coke and a bag of Fritos. A cup of ice cream was a nickel. There were so many options, and the world was mine for the next two days.

        I didn’t realize it at the time but I had entered the world of commerce, and the lessons I learned about the strength of money would be very valuable to me later.”


        LEFT POCKET:
        Poker term for where you keep your important money. AKA your bank roll.
        From the movie 'Lucky You',
        L. C. Cheever: I hear your left pocket is empty.

          “I carry death in my left pocket. Sometimes I take it out and talk to it: "Hello, baby, how you doing? When you coming for me? I'll be ready.”
          ― Charles Bukowski

                “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
                -Carl Sagan

                  "It seems that the human mind has first to construct forms independently before we can find them in things. Kepler’s marvelous achievement is a particularly fine example of the truth that knowledge cannot spring from experience alone but only from the comparison of the inventions of the intellect with observed fact."

                    That's all Greek to me. I'm a pretty simple guy, but if I had to guess I'd say it sounds like you're talking about imagination.

                        Yes please.

                        I recognize that I live but in a moment.. but in my moment, it’s a lot of pain that I don’t understand...

                          Ah, Game of Thrones. Jojen presumably said that just before being simultaneously killed and sexually assaulted by a family member who then taxidermied his mutilated corpse for laughs.

                            What if....

                            Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

                            What if it is Fenn who is keeping the secret because he is the sole survivor; aka the one not dead?

                                https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_trust
                                " A blind trust is a trust in which the trust beneficiaries have no knowledge of the holdings of the trust, and no right to intervene in their handling. In a blind trust, the trustees (fiduciaries, or those who have been given power of attorney) have full discretion over the assets. Blind trusts are generally used when a trust creator (sometimes called a settlor, trustor, grantor, or donor) wishes for the beneficiary to be unaware of the specific assets in the trust "
