    Default This is Joy

    Has anyone else noticed that the Kevin Peters website has a strange message? I checked, and it seems it has been that way on an off before, dating back to chapter 4, depending on web site domain expiring. It was renewed again sometime recently, but I'm not sure when exactly.

    It must be related to the book somehow, but what does it mean, and which chapter? Was this supposed to be our extra research clue for chapter 5, or might it be for chapter 6? Or perhaps it is just a red herring.

    It says on some lines that "this is filler" but the simple fact that when you click on the site it is titled "JOY" to me says that it is not a herring and was put there by Joy.

    It looks like a Stereogram.

    I think I know who "Joy" is from ya'll's writings over the last many months but, I'm sorry, I don't know who Kevin Peters is.??

    Also -- on the first line... "the as car four" .... is an anagram of "Author's Farce". I'm trying the rest of them but not much sense of any of it so far. Could it incorporate a line-by-line encryption of one or two words each and spell out something in the end? With, of course, Alpha and Omega in there to mean something important?

    It's not much use unless we know what chapter it is supposed to go to.

    I think I am with Macphisto on this one. I don't think it is necessarily a stereo-gram. I tried that, and it didn't make much sense. However, a couple clues left by the puzzle itself:

    -it is a picture, not text. This could simply be to maintain text formatting, but probably hints at some sort of bigger picture aka stereo-gram or similar
    -there is a total of 48 lines, but it's actually 24 lines repeated twice.
    -the line length is 79 characters...a prime number. Perhaps the overlap at the beginning and end of each line needs massaging to equal 80 columns instead?

    My thought is as follows. Ignore all the text, and just replace the text/spaces with two symbols. One for symbol text, one for symbol spaces. Divide the lines and columns up to form a table? 4lines/set * 6sets=24 lines? Divide columns up 4columns/symbolx20symbols~79,80?
    Then, use a substitution cipher to decode the symbols? I haven't tried this, but it makes sense I think. Probalem is there seems to be a lot of repetition even within each line, so I can't see how this could be decoded?

    I think this is for chapter 6. See C6Q6 to see why. Go a little further with some of the other ones as well, and convince yourself there is no relation to C4,5, or 7.

    Kevin Peters = Sculptor of the Eagle
    http://www.kevinpetersart.com/ (www . kevinpetersart . com)
    Website originally had a clue which in my notes looked like this:
    C12-13 Atlhpehlae Naudmeerroifcm Ceanersoadre sahsiqfuti scikx

    My notes also say, "The clue on Kevin Peters' website will be changed to correct an error in it." I don't know where that was posted or whether my notes have the corrected or uncorrected version of the clue.

    Hm. I don't think it's chapter 6.

    After deciphering the clue again, and looking at both versions, the original clue was:
    C12-13 Atlhpehlae Naudmeerroifcm Ceanersoadre sahsiqfuti scekvleyn

    However, when you get to C12-13, the clue doesn't work, so it was fixed:
    C12-13 Atlhpehlae Naudmeerroifcm Ceanersoadre sahsiqfuti scikx

    Neither of these have anything to do with the Joy page. The original website clues were for chapter 12.
