The word LABYRINTH is often used interchangeably with the word MAZE, although the two are not the same.
Typically, a labyrinth has a single winding path that you follow to the end, whereas a maze involves several branching paths that provide an opportunity for you to get lost in.
Labyrinths have been used for arguably thousands of years. A prehistoric rock carving of a labyrinth design was found dated to circa 2500BC in Western India. They made a huge appearance in medieval times in churches and cathedrals, and were thought to symbolize a journey of prayer.
The labyrinth design faded out for awhile, but has recently reappeared in art and architecture. For example, pictured here is the Belfast Cathedral in Northern Ireland with its labyrinth entrance completed in 1904.
Another puzzling appearance (pun intended!) is now the increased insurgence of MAZES. They are in movies, TV, art, theme parks, books, and much more.
One of the best maze books out there that you can get is MEIROKODO. Most typical maze puzzles offer the challenge of simply solving the puzzle from start to finish. Some corn mazes include trivia questions along the way, but it's not much different other than that.
MEIROKODO offers a whole new and unique approach to solving mazes that has never been done before, and MEIROKODO gives you something else in the process that you just can't get from any other source.
Are you ready for something exciting? Something new? Something fun?
