    Default Another oddity

    Has anyone ever wondered (and/or figured out) why on "New Page 6" (where the 5th Clue was posted... with the original PigPen Cipher) - the following was posted in non-English:



    Was there a reason for this? It was NOT included in the "Yellow Clue Box"... and no other page was non-English??

    Default pigpen cipher

    The cipher used for the apollo objects image is called the "Royal Arch Cipher" which is a variation of the pigpen cipher with two grids for caps and lowercase. It is one of many masonic ciphers.

    Default Thanx

    Appreciate the clarification Meta - it certainly will clear that up then! At least now I understand why there were three "characters" that were shaped differently!!

    "Apollo Objects" are a specific class of 'meteorites/astroids' (among a group of NEO's) that (according to NASA) "are asteroidlike bodies, whose orbits cross the orbit of the Earth".

    Specifically: Earth-crossing NEAs with semi-major axes larger than Earth's (named after asteroid 1862 Apollo). Named after the Greek God: 1862 Apollo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For more info on NEO's & NEA's with specific descriptions, go here: Near-Earth Object Groups
    Thanks...but I know the answer to WHAT they are, I just wondered if anyone had the answer or even, WHY it was asked, especially in an elaborate form of pigpen cipher on the page?

    See, that's more of what my question/point was...it MUST mean something and most likely, it's been right under our noses all this time. hmmm....

    Just another example of a '3 clue' or three puzzle clue? It told me what time, that's all I needed. heh.

    Exclamation may be nothing, but we are looking for needles...

    in the preverbial haystack, right????

    So here is what I found. On the main page of www.raidersnewsnetwork.com

    There is a lead story. "Paging Filmmaker James Cameron: Pentagon Wants 3-D Surveillance"

    This looks to be a "clickable" link, but when clicked, nothing happens. Here is the strange part. The link is the following:
    "javascript:void(0);/*1264716858791*/" (without the quotes)

    Hmmmm. 13 numbers. Strange for a javascript or any other link, dontcha think? I have no idea what it could mean, if anything, or how it could relate, but again it just seems "out of place"

    Any ideas????? We are running out of time!!! Sheeeeeeeeeeeooooot!

    This was a place-holder for the next clue...it reads "check again 9/30/2009, 0800 Central," telling you when the clue would be posted.

    Default I am sure you guys have found this...

    Just to confuse you more... just more gobbleygook!

    Knights Templar Ciphers

    many many different masonic ciphers. I am sure that many have already found this site, but I have yet to find any "online" automatic decoder/encoder for the knights tour or the templar...

    This is the one that I was mainly trying to work with- http://www.borderschess.org/Pyramid%20Cipher.htm

    Anyone else tried this or had any luck? It would make sense for Tom to utilize the cipher of the masons and the KOT, no?

    I just wish one of these would have me plug in the data, and have out pop 888-666-UWIN! Ugh.
