    Default Layer Two

    Kryptos Solved:

    K1 13 Q
    K2 13 U
    K3 13 S
    K4 13 A

    K1-13th word= Iqlusion= Q
    k2-undergruund= U
    K3-1st letter= S
    K4-Cipher UHUAUEK=ITISINA= A

    4 x 13 = 52 = 4 Box 13 Stripes and 52 Stars

    Note: Q is the 17th letter
    X is the 7th letter from Q
    W is the 6th letter from Q
    This makes : 1776

    This is the riddle behind the riddle of Kryptos. In order to get the full credit for the solve one must give out the "Key" and method of deciphering............ Which is:

    Default Riddle

    After reworking the matrial I think the riddle behind the riddle will be July 4 1776 and the American Flag.

    K1 Iqlusion = L
    K2 undergrouund =U
    K3 ?? =J/Y
    K4 ?? =J/Y

    Q is the 17th letter
    X is the 7th letter from Q
    W is the 6th letter from Q
    QXW=1776
    XW=13

    4 x 13 = 52=1 box 13 stripes and 52 stars.............

    LoL...................Thanks for catching that Sue

    I will have to rework Layer 2


    K1 IQLUSION = Q/L
    K2 UNDERGRUUND =O/U
    K3 ??=J/Y
    K4 ??=J/Y

    K1 Solve 13 words
    K2 13 word run to first X

    Q is the 17th letter
    X is the 7th letter from Q
    W is the 6th letter from Q

    QXW=1776

    What does this mean? There is plenty of speculation, but no clear answer. The most likely result is that the newly-discovered "Layer Two" words could be a key that (figuratively) open up some other section of the sculpture. Perhaps they will help with the unsolved part 4, or perhaps they will give insight into some other section. There are several other Kryptos-related puzzles that were placed on CIA grounds by the sculptor, which have never been satisfactorily explained. For example, it is known through reverse-engineering that one of the keys to part 1 is the word PALIMPSEST, and a key to part 2 is the word ABSCISSA, but it has never been figured out *how* someone was supposed to know to use those words -- sort of like if there was a treasure behind a padlocked door, and treasure-hunters knew what treasure was there because they'd managed to come in through a window, but they were never able to locate the hidden key that was supposed to be used to open the padlock in the first place (or even knew for sure if there had been a key for them to find). Those words "Layer Two" may help find one of the intended Kryptos keys. And if one is found, that might lead to an understanding of where to find the key to open "K4" - the still unsolved fourth part of Kryptos:

    So far this is the best version. I will rework the material and see what turns up

    Layer 2

    K1 IQLUSION = Q/L
    K2 UNDERGRUUND =O/U
    K3 ??=J/Y
    K4 ??=J/Y

    K1 Solve 13 words
    K2 13 word run to first X

    Q is the 17th letter
    X is the 7th letter from Q
    W is the 6th letter from Q

    QXW=1776
    XW=13

    I worked a few more things:
    K4E O B K R U O X
    K4D S E A L I S X
    OBKRUOXSEALISX
    Anagrams to: OL USA IS BROKEXX or SEAL IS BROK
    What I think is going on is Cipher-Puzzle and parts of "Layer 2" are showing up.

    OBKRUOXSEALISX

    Anagrams to: OL USA IS BROKEXX or SEAL IS BROKXX

    Where does K4D S E A L I S X come from?

    And, yes there may be more than 50 stars.
