My Guide to Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol

As mentioned last week, I’ve just published my revised version of The Guide to Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, and it’s available from Amazon.com for just $9.95 (or alternatively, Amazon UK for £7.99). As many of you know, I first published a guide to the sequel to The Da Vinci Code five years ago, in 2004. Much of what I predicted to be in The Lost Symbol turned out to be spot-on, so a number of chapters have just been reworked a little, while there are completely new chapters on Noetic Science (the inclusion of which surprised me somewhat), the ‘Lost Word’, and the cipher techniques discussed and utilised by Dan Brown. So, as a heads-up: if you bought the original guide you will not get a lot of extra material if you buy the updated version. If you don’t have it though, there’s plenty of fun and informative reading in there which I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

I posted a chapter excerpt last week here on the Grail, titled “Dan Brown and the Lost Word“. Over at The Cryptex you can also read a full chapter on the sacred landscape of Washington, D.C. in its original format as a PDF download (see the link in the left-hand column at the site). For the full rundown on the impact of Masonry on the Founding Fathers, the hidden history of America, the sacred landscape of Washington, D.C., Noetic Science, and the secret traditions which are at the heart of Robert Langdon’s journey in The Lost Symbol, pick up a copy of the book. Or the Baby Jesus will cry:

  1. The Guide to Daniel Brown’s Lost Symbol
    Greg:

    I am actually reading Dan Brown’s book “Lost Symbol” and I must say so far he is pretty accurate about some of the Masonic Ritual work; in particular in the first part of the book. But you and I know decoding the allegory and symbolism behind the Capitol Washington DC isn’t anything new. But I notice on the front cover of your book; you have the symbolism of the Star of David. Thus, just curious of why and what is behind how you formulated the symbolic art and graphics on your book? Could you expound a little.

      “What in the world is she getting at? Langdon had seen this image before. It was popular among conspiracy theorists as “proof” that the Masons held secret influence over our early nation. When the six-pointed star was laid perfectly over the Great Seal of the United States, the star’s top vertex fit perfectly over the Masonic all-seeing eye…and, quite eerily, the other five vertices clearly pointed to the letters M-A-S-O-N.”

      Masons, hidden history of America, conspiracy theories – it just ties in nicely with a lot of the content in the book. It suggested itself – the image I had of the Capitol on the cover actually outlines the shape, via the treeline and reflection in the water. So a little serendipity went a long way to its inclusion.

      1. Symbolism
        Okay, I understand because your choice of symbolism could be interpreted from a wide range and array of interpretations (I guess that is the nature of symbolism). I did have what you stated in mind, but I also had something of possessing a lot more sinister based on your graphics and how it was positioned over the capitol.
