    Default Binary numbers on the grid...

    Hi all,
    Okay, I'm pretty sure I discovered something...

    Take the grid given, and for every black square, count as '0'. Every colored square, count as '1'. Read from left to right, top to bottom and get:

    0010111100111110001111111

    Now, break this up into 8-bit binary numbers:

    00101111
    00111110
    00111111
    1

    Yes, there is one leftover. This may relate to the part of the dream "one on ending"

    Notice anything about the numbers? They're exactly 1 greater than the preceeding number: 47.. 48.. 49..

    Not sure of the relevance, but In ASCII that would also convert to: / .. 0 .. 1 ..

    Absolutely no idea where any of this leads us, but it's gotta mean something.

    Default what if...

    instead of right to left it is up and down?
    0110101101111010011110111

    01101011
    01111010
    01111011
    1

    what would that be?

    I had thought of that too, but it doesn't really look like promising in that direction:

    Numbers: 107, 122, 123

    ASCII: KZ{

    Default uh, i dont think so

    after doing a "bit" of research, i discovered this

    The first code is as follows
    /
    not a code
    ?

    Mine are as follows
    k
    z
    (


    This might have been good...but?!

    you are on the right track...but as the poem says...something is missing.

    Default KZ

    For what its worth "KZ" blocks on page 63 are EXACTLY the same make and sit in opposing corners of the page. Are you sure the other character isn't a "U"?

    Did you try a vernam cipher for the binary? http://www.pro-technix.com/informati...rnam_base.html

    I just looked at this binary code and it looks interesting. But I do not see the 47, 48, 49 sequence. Could anyone fill me in?

    00101111 = 63-16 = 47
    00111110 = 63-1 = 62
    00111111 = 63
