Dan Brown Pries Open Vatican Archives

Okay, so it's not like Robert Langdon cracked a code and found the secret passageway into the Vatican Archives...but it's interesting to note the indirect influence that may apply here. So go easy on me for the headline.

After centuries of being kept under lock and key, the Vatican has started opening its Secret Archives to outsiders in a bid to dispel the myths and mystique Angels and Demonscreated by works of fiction such as Dan Brown's Angels and Demons.

The archives, until now jealously guarded from prying eyes, provide one of the key settings in Brown's thriller, in which Harvard "symbologist" Robert Langdon, played in the 2009 film by Tom Hanks, races against time to stop a secret religious order, the Illuminati, from destroying Vatican City.

...They have been open to carefully vetted academic researchers for more than 100 years, but in the last few months the Vatican has granted tours to select groups of journalists and members of the public, allowing a glimpse into one of its inner most sanctums.

Note though that the 'secret' archives remain off-limits; so hardly the Vatican's dirty laundry laid out for all to see. Full story here.

On The Vatican Archives:

Because (the) Church has never really understood what all they have in their possession, but instead are merely the keepers of vast amounts of 'antiquity'. This makes it possible for others to come forward with their wishful and creative thinking, and conjecture which makes for great reading.
There is however a source of Truth, it contains physical and more important intellectual proof that requires 'actual touching' (ands on if you will) in order for these truths to be found and more important, understood.
There is a Solomon's Key, this IS that key: 666. And of course that key comes with other easily understood keys: 360, 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, , 777, 888, 999. These Keys can easily be found in over 35 unrelated sciences, the material has a name: Theophysical Science the name 'Theophysical" was coined and copyrighted in 1989, and first worked on in 1986. In Dan Brown's book Angels and Demons, he writes "...he considered himself a theophysicist...", the author of The Solomon Formula and Dan Brown exchanged letters sometime BEFORE Angels & Demons was written and published!
