The Publius Enigma

By Nicholas Palffy

The Evening Standard

What is the meaning of page 11 (elf-elf...) of the TDB booklet? On the background of the image, we see bits of a newspaper on the wall. The Evening Standard. But literally speaking, what's the "Evening Standard"?

It is obviously THE MOON! The Standard of the Evening is the moon rising. Here again, the MOON is the KEY to the hidden message. 11/11, that is November 11th, points to the Shamain festival of the Celts.

Pink Floyd seems obsessed by the MOON.

"Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun

[...] Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky."

"You reach for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon

[...] Threatened by shadows at night and exposed in the light.

[...] Well you wore out your welcome with random precision

[...] Nobody knows were you are, how near or how far

[...] Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there

[...] And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph..."
