Brahe Code

Brahe Code

Brahe Code is a concept that has no official recognition, but remains one popular with the more conversant fans of his work.


There are two forms of ‘Code’ which factional proponents claim exist in the works of Tycho Brahe – firstly is the idea that the author placed clues to reality as he perceives it within phrases and names contained in the novels. This process tends to be known as ‘anagramation’ (lit. ‘the process through which valuable information is hidden within anagrams’).


Some examples of anagramation within the Elemenstor Cycle are as follows:


Epic Legend of The Hierarchs - "She Agreed: Cliche Fetish Porn".

Tycho Wang Brahe – “Anyhow Brag Tech”

James Langomedes - “Glossed Enema Jam”

Harbinger Portent - “Bar(r)en Report Thing”

Char Reyarteb – “Artery Breach” (though people say there is much more meaning in this name)


When done with other excerpts, such as from Parable of the Swimming Rabbit, further examples are offered:


"You ought to learn from the rabbit, Rosinquist." - "Largemouth, not for you quotient shit ribs bar!" - Which clearly encourages us to talking.


"This Is Not the Staff of the High Augur" – “Aforethought sustains fifth height.”



It should be noted that the anagramation is viewed as somewhat uncouth and is generally deemed “invented by the observer too shallow to see the deeper truth” by those who consider themselves more series students and acolytes of the works of Tycho Brahe (known as Brahites).


The other concept put forward by fans is that the very work itself contains hidden clues and portents regarding the nature of the world in which The Elemenstor Cycle exists and how it relates to our own, a concept that has proven popular with the Brahite factions amongst the fan base. This concept has been dubbed ‘portentation’ (lit. ‘portents that flow from within the woven nature of the text, placed there by intervention beyond mortal ken’)


Currently, the most popular interpretation of portentation within the Elemenstor Cycle is that Tycho has placed clues within the works that, when all the clues are brought together, sends the researcher on a trail fraught with twists and turns. Indeed, it is pointed out by Brahites that the phrase “Sulum, omnis corpus cavus effluo; Sulum punctum puteo validus; Validus fumo vir” which appears in an 11th century chapel in Sussex, amongst the various faded hand-scribed inscriptions on the wall, appears in the 10th book authored by Tycho Brahe; “Each, every orifice would leak; Each punctum puteo validus; Mighty was the hero's reek”.


Further, the scientifically determined date of the inscription is 1054AD; the aforementioned quote comes from chapter 5, paragraph 4. This is also, perhaps by coincidence, though the Brahite’s claim otherwise, the year in which the Western and Eastern churches separated. It should be noted that this small chapel is one of the few surviving Saxon churches to exist in the post-Norman invasion England.


Indeed, an inscription below this appears in medieval English, stating “Seken leoht en thy lands, folgian the lodestar fram Valois”. This inscription is significant for two reasons; first is that it is in ancient English, and approximately says “Seek the light by following the north star from the lands of the Valois (the Valois being the name for a line of French Kings)”. This dialect of English died out in 12th century, when the cultural interbreeding of the Normans drove it out of use.

Secondly, the Valois line of Kings did not rule France until the 14th century, which immediately brings us to two assumptions;


1. That the inscription is a fake, or

2. That whoever made the inscription knew the future.


It is the second interpretation of the inscription with the Brahite’s ascribe to, one which speaks of a strange happenings going on in those ancient days.


This is but one example of portentation; there are many within Tycho Brahe’s novels, all of which are swelling to a culminating revelation – one which the Brahite’s believe the clues to which exist within The Fourteenth Manuscript.
