    Default Kryptos K4 Is A Simple Past - Palimpsest

    Elonka FAQ states ...

    Q: Some of the early accounts say that Kryptos was created in collaboration with a "prominent fiction writer." Who is this referring to?

    No one. According to Sanborn, the "prominent fiction writer" concept was one from the early stages of design, but later it was decided not to use it. Or as Sanborn said, "It was one idea I considered in the beginning. I decided not to do it, why let someone else in on the secret?"

    A: Michael Stadther has filled the void.

    Default Veteran's Day - Desert One

    It is Veteran's Day so I have to try again ... To rescue our mates and bring them home.

    What is below is the unsolved K4 Kryptos messages memorializing the intelligence efforts of the OSS and the fallen in the Iran Hostage rescue. The unmasking is made possible by using a trained treasure hunter mentality thanks to Mike. For those who can still read a book with a child please visit http://www.specialops.org/ to learn about those who have given and can no longer read to their kids.

    Putting it together you get a text memorializing the event ...

    It's T in Tiaga position as
    Timzone Hook Team Operation
    To met DMZ are Killed in Action Before.
    Embassy hostage get them Operation
    Resend ETA - Late me at wide Open Throttle

    Wow.

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    A key to remove the mist from K4 so you can read the intended text. You will be able to read what the message is, but you may not at first understand what js wrote. The final text is a palmipsest of several messages. If I give you the key can you repeat my steps and validate that they do show the messages above. You do not have to agree that it is js's intent, just that the logic is true. Once you have repeated the steps you can draw your own conclusion. You might see, uhm ... little, or you might see wonderful things! Care to try?
