    Californiared, if my dad worked with Scheidt at CIA, I'd be slipping sodium amytol into his Coors after dinner, saying "Think, man! Think! What did he tell you!?"

    That was a great story, thanks for sharing it.

    I'm glad you are here, holli. Be sure to read Cthree's primer post: http://www.tweleve.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10880 and the other stuff in the top-level forum.

    To answer your question, lots of things have been considered over the years. Interviews with Sanborn over the years hint that it might be his own code, or a mix of codes. It is hard to say. Sanborn says a lot of things, yet he reveals very little. And that is all part of tradecraft and the Kryptos mystery.

    instead of hardy...why not hydra?...

    hydra, common name for freshwater organisms in the phylum Cnidaria, which includes jellyfish, sea anemones, and corals. Hydras are widely distributed in lakes, ponds, and sluggish streams. They are small, cylindrical, solitary organisms, the largest reaching about 1 in. (2.5 cm) in length. They attach themselves temporarily to water plants or submerged objects, using an adhesive pedal disk at the anal end. The simple body consists of an outer layer of epidermis, a middle noncellular layer of mesoglea, and an inner layer of gastrodermis lining the simple gastrovascular cavity, where the final stages of food digestion occur. A whorl of tentacles surrounds the mouth. Hydras feed on small plankton organisms, especially microcrustaceans, stunning them with stinging cells (nematocysts) in the tentacles. Hydras reproduce asexually by budding and sexually by means of gonadal cells formed on the sides of the body. The green hydra, Chlorhydra viridissima, contains green algae living symbiotically in its gastrodermal cells. The gray and brown hydras belong to the genus Pelmatohydra. Several species of hydra also occur in American waters. Hydras are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Hydrazoa.

    I you want to pursue the hydra line of thinking, there is a DYAHR sticky over in the K3 subforum.

    just been thinking about the progression of puzzles here.

    K1- Funky Vigenere cipher -
    K2- Funky Vigenere cipher
    K3- Double Transposition cipher


    Is there a progression here? how would one make the leap from K2 to K3? For that matter, how would one know to try the same kind of cipher for K2?

    All of this leads to the question of what kind of cipher is K4? Is it some other type of transposition cipher, or some sort of substitution cipher? Or heaven forbid, some combination of the two?

    I guess time will tell.
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    That's why we're trying to figure out Sanborn's intended method of solving the first three parts. There has to be a logical and progressive path to K4.
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    Holli used the word sluggish and discussed invertebrates! YAY, Holli!
