Here is the center piece of my ICOC paper and the current lead article in Ghereh magazine. It is as proven to be 17th century as it could possibly be. The Metropolitan Museum of Arts' curator of textiles, Nobiku Kajitani, acquired the fibers and supplied the control "knows" including a piece of the Ardebil carpet in a major test of the best dating facility in the world.Do any of you really realize how unimaginably important this experiment was to be given a piece of the Ardebil to burn? Think about it. My theories demand that this piece should be completely filled with desert adapted nomadic symbology and the end product of 4-6 centuries of uninterrupted nomadic in situ evolutionary development. Have fun looking at it. I am 100% sure of my ability to read the octagonal gulls symbolic meaning. Would any of you be interested in applying the read white first rule in decoding it? Jim Allen
