    Consider, per chance, that little rock had wings and just how influential that might be (have been) on a young man's mind?

    It does, to a degree. If you mean to the highest degree measurable, that's a pretty low likelihood, unless Forrest is an identical twin. I have no reason to believe he is. But in some circumstances, like when someone has a "double cousin", the two people share identical genetics. I don't know whether that means having the exact same DNA, necessarily. Mutations happen, for example, and could interfere with that kind of "coincidence" (I suspect). As always, part of my opinion.

    I'd consider amniotic fluid to perhaps be considered "water", but not "waters".

Thus the answer to "why" could be the journey of enlightenment that Forrest took during and after his bout with cancer, causing him to progress and develop his feelings about how and where he would actually die and be interred (or have his ashes spread). Does anybody know that? If Jack does, he wouldn't answer. Perhaps that is the big final reveal.

    As far as preserving Forrest’s DNA, I had an entire solve based around “Me in the Midden”. They’ve found organic material inside packrat middens that dates back as far as 40,000 years. I thought Forrest wanted his bones near a midden so the packrats could carry some bone fragments inside.

    Maybe he rode in on a (high) horse, and wanted to get rid of it at the end.

    I believe the thing with the helicopter would be a far stretch because that would turn things completely on it's head. I mean which way would be "up"? Then again, I guess it doesn't matter when you're in that deep.

    But as far as Forrest's DNA is concerned, I think it would be cool if his DNA matched someone in the future. That might finally prove that reincarnation exists and the reason why, at death, many of us are covered in flowers . . as it rein(s)-carnations.

    How about the topic of being "umbilically connected." Besides being in utero, can you think of a time when Forrest was dependent on being attached by a life-saving, cord-like device? How about when he was being hoisted up to the Candy Ann from the jungle floor near the karst? (sidenote: there could be some symbolic meaning there with the hidey spot, i.e. Forrest's body near a cliff).

    Or how about this one, what if Forrest took two trips from his sedan to the hiding place (who says that can't be describing where he 'hid' it in the chopper), and then lowered it with a rope or cord to it's final resting place in the Rocky Mountains in an . . . umbilically attached, sort of delivery. Sounds cray cray, I know. But, Forrest Fenn should not be underestimated, IMO.

    Ha! You're a clever turtle. The force is strong with you.

    Good point. I'd hate for all those Stormtroopers to be clones of Forrest, that would be sad. They are lousy shots and just end up as cannon fodder.
