  • The archery approach

    One approach (which I call "the archery approach") to solving the poem is to seriously consider that FF collected arrowheads, starting while quite young.
    It is believed that this treasure hunt has some relationship to the concept of a "cycle of life", that has a beginning point and an ending point, both of which
    have some similarities to one another. This concept has also been teased at in other (outside of this treasure hunt) venues, mentioning that when you are
    born and when you die you are typically (for all practical purposes) pretty much toothless, hairless, and unable to walk. But I digress.
    Forrest's quote from T.S. Eliot suggests to me that the beginning resembles the ending, so I want to introduce the idea of the possibility of finding an arrowhead near the
    hidey spot (perhaps signifying the finish of Forrest's life-long hobby of collecting/finding arrowheads). I understand that some arrowheads were made of "volcanic glass".

      While I was searching I found something that fits your description. It wasn't obsidian though. I noted its presence and continued on my (short) journey.
      There are probably a lot of those lying around undiscovered in the grass, though if standing in the right spot a searcher might see one.

          Blindfolds and Jarts come to mind on this one.

            In my opinion, it doesn't have to be an actual arrowhead. It can be an arrowhead shape on a map formed by the lines representing rivers, trails, etc. Finding an arrowhead in the ribs of a mammoth would be nice, I think.

              Indeed. You will likely find several aero's where you begin and another aero as you put it, "toothless, hairless, and unable to walk" anymore, at the end.

                I wonder if there's a waterfall at the ending or if the ending resembles the beginning because they're both headfakes and disappointments. Maybe I'll never know. Hmm. Maybe I will. Only the shadow knows. Did you know thats the name of a rock in an Elvis movie? The rabbit holes on this thing.

                        I saw a VERY big picture of that somewhere.

                        If I remember correctly somewhere north of Santa Fe.

                              he ate it
                              and left the rest of us
                              just like you.
