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

    LOL! So, Elonka decoded it then called Dan Brown to tell him about it. Dan delayed the book while waiting for his attorneys to work it out with Sanborn's attorneys.

    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    On April 19, 2006, Jim Sanborn contacted Elonka Dunin and gave her the biggest Kryptos news in years, the "LAYERTWO" K2 ending. This started a media frenzy of Kryptos stories and interviews.

    Two days later, Dan Brown's publisher released a statement that his next novel, The Solomon Key, would be delayed until 2007. (link: http://www.thebookstandard.com/books..._id=1002384181). The Solomon Key is to involve the Kryptos statue, and it's involvement was confirmed with puzzles incorporated into The DaVinci Code's dust jacket.

    Since April and the most exciting breakthrough on Kryptos in years, Elonka, Kryptos maven extraordinaire, has been silent. She has stopped discussing Kryptos entirely. After the wave of media interviews subsided, there has been nothing. No posts from her at all on her own Yahoo group.

    Could it be there is a reason for this silence? She has admitted to being acquainted with both Sanborn and Dan Brown. In fact, she introduced Dan Brown to Sanborn. There maybe something going on in this happy little triangle of insider knowledge. The motive would be the treasure of the Solomon Key. This book is guaranteed to be a best seller, and Dan Brown must be worried that a Kryptos solution at this point would derail his golden gravy train.

    Ok, Rusty you have the solve here. I saw the movie and just finished reading the book tonight. To add to your conspiracy here is fun. I learned how to read kryptos last spring and emailed the author of a child's book several questions. About a week later the correction was announced. Imagine if I used the "real" solution to anagram a hidden message. Using the real solution I would need the letters from layer TWO, not the incorrectly known text assumed to be solved. If I used the assumed solved text I would get the wrong answer and the hunt would be in error. An error in transmission. We would have an issue here would we not? Also many of my treasure hunt messages can be matched up to the sculpture. To make the conspiracy even deeper imagine if the publisher of both books did not understand that they possessed two conflicting books. Would not the little book get crushed so the money making book could go forward?
