The Paths of the Mai

Nine Lives of Chloe KingI’ve already shared with you the first clue on the path to finding The Uniter. This trail continues for the Circle of Strangers. From the Uniter Scroll:

In the 995th year of the 2nd millennium in the land of the Cimmerians, Scythians, and Sarmatians, an extraordinary girl will be born. This supreme Mai, rumored to be part God and part Human, is the one the Mai have been awaiting for many, many years.

She’ll be called The Uniter. For her first 16 years, The Uniter will be protected and cared for by a human parent. During this time, she will not know about her great powers or unique position. The Uniter outwardly appears to be an average girl…As the might Warrior within the Girl emerges, The Mai and a group of Humans, known as the Circle, will join together. Guided by the Nine Paths Prophecy, these two will attempt to find and connect with the incredible Girl known as The Uniter.

BastetThe challenge of the Second Path requires examination of an ancient statue (at right). We must answer the following questions about the statue:

  • What is the ancient Egyptian name for this statue?
  • What very warm and bright star did ancient Egyptians originally connect to this statue?
  • What city in Egypt contained a “cult” that was dedicated to the Goddess connected to this statue?

There are many ways to discover the answers to these questions. I discovered the answers using Google Goggles. Then, we must search You Tube for the three words: Bastet, Sun, Bubastis. I will now share with you the secret message from the Mai that these answers have accessed:

The clue for the Third Path arrived a few days later with a message to decode using the Book of Mai (left), a document given to every member of the Circle of Strangers. The decoded message read: Chloe King is The Uniter.

The clue for the Fourth Path arrived today — a message regarding the baby bib that arrived as part of the initial package. The bib’s tag displayed the Mai symbol for “trust” with a web address. Tomorrow, June 3, I will tweet the code word that you can use to uncover a new video clue about Chloe King.

There is still time to join this quest and enter to win your circle charm. I will tweet the code once on Friday, June 3. Two new code words will be revealed around June 6 and June 13.
