Re: VMs: Finding
Welcome to the list, Jorge!
location for the evt interlinear file that you mention; is it available to
the public? I searched Alltheweb and Google for "the mysterious device
described in the Cabal" and "in the .evt interlinear file" and found only
in file text16e6.evt .
Stolfi has added a great deal of information since the version you were
probably looking at. The "cabal" reference is off-hand compared to the
volume of the rest. Here's the section that includes the reference:
# HIGH-LEVEL INTERPRETATION
# I.e. what is the purpose of this picture?
# The sun in the NE corner suggests a cosmological interpretation.
# On the other hand, the tubes suggest anatomy, or (less likely)
# plumbing, while the roads and tower suggest a map.
# The whole diagram may be a graphic equivalent of the description
# of the cosmos given in 1 Enoch and other ancient texts, where
# natural phenomena like planetary motions, rivers, winds, rains,
# springs, etc. are said to be produced in some "cosmic factory".
# Alternatively, it could be a "biological factory" explanation of
# human physiology.
# Perhaps this diagram is an attempt to draw the mysterious device
# described in the Cabal, or the apocalyptic vision of Ezra, or
# Heron's hydraulic gadgets, or...
# Just to cover all the bases: it could be a report from a time
# traveler or UFO abductee: the NW rosette is a fusion reactor, the
# pipes leaving it carry steam for heating, the N/S/W/E rosettes are
# steam turbines, the bulb-headed towers in the center are
# rockets... 8-)
# Another possibility is that it is a "fantasy island", like many
# kids like do draw (and grown-ups too---consider Tolkien's maps of
# Middle Earth)
