So, much like all the secrets on Lateralus, 10,000 Days contains a secret about the 3 tracks that involve maynard's late mother, a devout christian, in case you didn't know was half paralyzed by a stroke, and remained in that state for about 26 years, or 10,000 days. She passed on in 2003. You may realize that Judith, by APC is also about her, about how ironic it was that this unfortunate incident only served to make her faith in god stronger. Both wings tracks show that maynard is no longer as cynical and sarcastic regarding his mother and even tells her that when she rises up to be judged by st.peter, that she demand "your pillar of faith has ascended. give me my wings!"

Put wings for marie part 1 and viginti tres(23, a special number in terms of sacred geometry) together, and play it over the title track, the songs will sync up.

Has anyone tried it? Or has anyone found any other secrets?

The lateralus secrets are pretty interesting too.
Especially the idea of "spiraling out" and the Fibonacci spiral. As well as maynard's delivery in the title being a growing-receding-then-growing-even-more fibonacci sequence, in terms of syllables.

black - 1
then - 1
white are - 2
all i see - 3
in my infancy - 5
red and yellow then came to be - 8
reaching out to me - 5
lets me see - 3
there is - 2
so - 1
much -1
more that - 2
beckons me - 3
to look through to these - 5
infinite possibilities - 8
as below so above and beyond I imagine - 13
drawn beyond the lines of reason - 8
...and so on.

There are a lot of other secrets, like listening to the tracks in different orders. Wikipedia is your friend.
