I am glad you brought this subject up Korovev. I have questions and interpretations of my own of the pellet cave bahro glyphs. 3,4 & 5 I see differently than what is told. I may be a bit sketchy on my glyph numbers.
BCG 1 in the pool cave represents Yeesha leaving home (Tomanah). BCG 2 she is in the desert looking for some thing? BCG 3 Yeesha meets Southwestern Indians, possibly Anasazi or Pueblo/Navajo. It appears to me she is trading with a great Chieftain, This is shown by the rows of corn, turtles, people an things. She is trading for the location to the entrance (cleft) that leads to D'ni Aguera. Remember Atrus and T'Anna do not have linking books to Aguera. Now the cleft possibly would have been a scared place of the Indians.The Chieftain believes her to be a person from there ancient lore of Underground people, one of the 4 worlds in lore. BCG 4 we see Yeesha depicted in the caverns in or on the way to Aguera city. BCG 5 we see Yeesha in the middle of a spiral. I believe this spiral represents the Kings of D'ni. Yeesha is in the middle because she has studied/learned about all the Kings. The reason I believe this is because, there are 37 pedestals in the Kings Palace with a spiral in the center of the floor. There 33 images of people in the glyph with 4 on the outer corners. Yeesha is still learning about her peoples history at this time.
I may be way off on this but wanted to put it out there to see what everyone thought.
Let me know in here what you think, possible? maybe? now way in the Universe? :> )

She wouldn't have needed to trade for the location of The Cleft, Atrus knew where it was and she would have known too growing up as Atrus often visited the Cleft.

As for the spiral one (BC6), generally the spiral represented one of two things, a. The Journey, and b. The Descent into D'ni. I lean more towards the idea that it is a combination of the two. Yeesha at the center of the journey because she is the guide, with the people being The Called. The 4 figures in the corners I'd suggest as being representations of the four Seers.

Thank you Korovev and Tweek for the response. The glyph BCG 6? in question I was looking at from a chronological order before the Calling. I would think that Atrus would have told/shown Yeesha where the cleft was also, but I do not recall any detail or story of him saying so, and we do not know the distance from Tomanah. If you have something please point me in the right direction.
The trading part is really conjecture on my part, but, if Yeesha did not know it might be plausible ??

Well there isn't a really defined chronological order, there is a speculated chronological order.

Anyway, there is no story of him telling Yeesha the location, but then we don't have a story covering absolutely everything. Atrus leaves Tomahana to go to The Cleft to get spare parts for the crystal imager, which indicates he visits the Cleft often enough to have some sort of "lab" set up there. I don't think it's a stretch that Yeesha would have learned the location growing up if not gone there with Atrus herself.

I seem to recall Tomahana being Northwest of The Cleft, I can't remember if it was a couple of miles away or 30 miles away though.I can't say with certainty though as it has been a while, I might be getting confused with the area Ti'ana accessed the D'ni tunnels from which was 30 miles to the south of the Cleft.

Tweek, good point, Atrus may have taken Yeesha to the cleft but not the entrance to D'ni. So my idea of trading may still be valid because she was seeking the entrance, the Indians may have know where this was located. Yeesha could also have just been seeking a knowledge from them because of indain lore that resembled D'ni lore or history.
I will still hold to the idea that the spiral glyph in BCG 6 is Yeesha gaining knowledge of the Kings and D'ni culture for now.

ChloeRohodes. You have just mentioned something I did not know. I thought Anna and her father actually lived in the cleft while doing their surveys, I did not know of a lodge,(interesting) is this in the book of Ti'ana?

As Tweek , the Guild of Maintainers kept a degree of secrecy around their technological R&D. It could be argued that, in order to carry out their inspection duties, they also had some familiarity with the Art, perhaps some of them were former Writers.

Likewise, the Guild of Writers could also have kept a degree of secrecy around their own R&D. Just like we have little information about how the Maintainer suits worked, how the Wall worked, or how many settings the KI actually had (or how they called it, for that matter), there might as well have been various bahro-like techniques (I don’t like the term “Yeesha magic”) under research. If they are not mentioned in the documents, it could be because they were .

10.000 years is a long time; factoring an average lifespan of 325 years, they would feel like about 2000 years for us, and starting from a technological level comparable if not higher than the one we are at now. We know that there were rogue Writers (Kadish, A’gaeris). We know the D’ni had, at some point, a secret intelligence force (the Relyimah); they were disbanded, sure, but can we exclude a comeback in the period between Kerath and the Fall? Or the Fall? How likely it is that in all the time since Garternay, before Yeesha not a single Writer or Maintainer, whether in good standing, undercover or rogue, attempted to Write beyond the boundaries of the Guild’s rules?

Calam was said to be a Master Writer, to be versed in everything the D’ni knew about the Art. Said by who? By Yeesha. Was she giving an objective evaluation based on her non-first-hand knowledge of the D’ni, or praising a lover? Perhaps he was good, but not part (or aware, even) of that hypothetical Writers/Maintainers undercover research group.

ChloeRodes,shorah, I did go back and re-read this, but now I have another dilemma. Myst Reader 3 books page 324. I read 2 men in a desert at night see the ground move and shake, sand and rock seemed to be lifted. They say "Allah preserve us!". American Indians did not know of Allah. So now where does that place the cleft and lodge??
