So, I'm not a novel writer by a long shot, but I'm leaving a "trail of breadcrumbs (posts)" on craigslist for fun to see if anyone can crack my code. In this case, the actual content has nothing to do with the clues. it helps, but you could figure out the clue for the first post using only the location. I listed the location as "210 North Central Ave., 25227" I'l explain my reasoning, but first here is the rest of the post:

*****

What is noise without Silense?
What is heat with no kold?
What is life with no death?
What is a beginning with no end?
What is the ritsh without the poor?
What is a wall if there is no door?

What is light with no darkness?
What is a Shadow without the sun?
Kan One exist without The Other?
If then one ends, does the other die as well?

*****



Here is my reasoning for the address:
<spoilers>
so, the first part, the address itself:
210 North Central Avenue
This means the first two letters, then the first letter, then no letters:
2, 1, 0   North Central Avenue
This is to say "No C" as in the letter, which the next section clears up some confusion:

The zip code "25227"

25 means I'm using a 25 letter alphabet, which means that one letter is evicted. This makes the first part make sense. "no c" you take out the C.

then 22 and 7 these numbers represent W and H as in width, height

My intention is for the readers to arrange the 25 letters as such:
A B  D  E F
G H  I  J K
L M N O P
Q R S T U
V W X Y Z

in a 5x5 square.
in the next few posts, I will use the zip code to communicate a specific letter as such:
"04233" would be an 'O'
the 23rd letter in this alphabet is x, so it says 04x3 as in a rectangle 4 wide and 3 "high" (reverse high).
<spoilers>



So.. what do you think? Is this way too abstract? lol
