Looking closer at the Merseburg drawing we will find te same consistencies. If we count the weights in the pendulum weights in the picture, we will find 5 square weights and 3 circular pendulum weights. Again we have 5 and 3 (totally 8).
When we look closer again, we see that all these weights have the value of 11.
Value of square weights : 11 x 5 = 55
Value of the circular weights: 11 x 3 = 33
Value of all eight pendulum weights: 11 x 8 = 88
And the value of ORFFYRE = O+R+F+F+Y+R+E' = 88
The most important of all is that we have found the signs of a very elaborate code in the writings of Orffyreus, and we get a confirmation that we have understood their meaning properly.
Now, let us see how this discovered 5/3 appears as geometry in the same drawing. Remember that he even called himself ORFFYREUS 5/3
Looking closer at the drawing and the wheel itself, we can see that he has drawn tiny lines that has about a 30 degrees angle.
If we complete this geometry, we get a triange:
The triangle meets the triangle shaped padlock. Now we can understand why he placed this padlock just here.
So if 3 represents a triangle, what about 5 then?
We now see that the right wall, is placed in line with a pentagon, and we can see that this setting is just a horizontal version of the earlier found solutions.
