Clue #46 - Persephone (14) +1, Hole 3, Save Me

Thanks to our faithful chatters in our comments (I think they actually beat the Speaker on this one...talk about setting world speed records for subverting authority!), we noticed that Persephone's numbers (at persephone.thehansofoundation.org ) have changed to read "+1". Speculation led us to hole3.thehansofoundation.org and we see a broken link to a photo with the file name: t9agen75.gif

A guy named Matt spied the picture before they took it away (Way to go Matt!). Below is what he gave us.






























Next, someone named Duality "randomized the pallet" and zoomed in on the left eye and it looks like our picture contains the message "Save Me". This is very interesting because last week, someone named Kyle converted the Hole2 picture to audio and sent us a NEW LINK to videos with unusual sounds. We thought he was crazy when he told us he thought it said "Save Me"...now he's got us wondering if he's onto something.

Have a look and a listen and decide for yourself...

Well, if matt the pale can be taken at his word, then why would the image have gone red-x?

Crashed?

Prematurely posted?

Wrong image file?

Taken down for other reasons?

Intentionally brief?

Although Speaker said that if the image isn' there it is because of the server being busy I agree with jd. It is genuinely as if it isn't there anymore. If you right click the red cross where the image should be and choose show picture it doesn't try very hard. If the server was busy it would time out then come up with that cross. As far as I know anyway.

Lol, I still have MGI PhotoSuite 8.05 lying around, so I opened up the image. When I did that, 16 squares open up in my window in greyscale -- that is the color palette for this particular gif. I changed them one by one until I found the one that changed the text for "save me." Oh, and I darkened the others to make it easier to read.

Using this method will not work with the hole2 image, of course, because there are only 2 tones in the image: white and grey

lostluvr29: according to the Speaker, the heavy traffic to the site is why we are having trouble viewing the image... strange excuse to me... I would suspect just as much traffic to hole2 and we had no problem viewing that image, but I agree that we should not discount the file name as a clue just yet... maybe TPTB were testing how fast we could get a copy of the image before they remove it, who knows?

Because no-one had figured out what the picture that was at hole2.thehansofoundation.org was for, somebody (can't remember who) decided to feed the file through an audio program pretty much just for the hell of it (tried everything else). When played back it sounded like save me but was really hard to tell. The guy who did it put a number of other images through to see what he could find and couldn't find anything so it was semi-reasonable to assume that maybe, just maybe it did say save me. Most thought wishful thinking but this latest clue seems to have strengthened the theory.

"t9" is the system used to figure out the rest of the filename.

I think we need to assume that the key to the gif file codes is Q9 and T9. I don't know what to do about the chinese version, but surely there's someone familiar enough with text messaging to sort out what various messages can be spelled out using agen75 in T9 lingo (sadly, I am chronologically incapable of thinking this way). Isn't "75" translateable as "is okay"? That seems promising. The first word could be "Chen", but I don't know anyone in game with that name. Text messagers, help!

For the angles thing, i'll repeat for those who hasn't read my theory

Brazil, Iran and Nambia

These are the only three locations that you can obtain the gematrain numbers from the updated MFI map???????

Brazil 8400*9.9*50.2=4174632 tan=3.077683537

Nambia 8200*35*39.6=11335200 tan=3.077683537

Iran 8100*11.2*27.5=2494800 tan=-3.077683537

3.077683537 was the number displayed at the "letthecompasguideyou" site, close to the 180 degrees.

All those places with the symbols on the map are places where hanso bases have been set working all around the world

but these 3 places particularly mean somethting, especially as they are 108, which persephone popped up at subLYMONal and it is in LOST

I don't think there is a clue within the numbers as they are justfigure references

I think that Nambia, Brazil and Iran probably have something in common hence they all are connected to 108

Can anyone hazard a guess what?

Climate?

Magnetism energy?

So we have Hanso in 2002 - Year he went missing

And in 1975 - The year most likely Dharma started and things went pearshaped

I have a feeling that maybe his father was originally in control and it passed down to him as a young man in 1975

His dad....Magnus Hanso.....blast door map...??

Blogger MZatylny said...

In a sense it is one person Hole2 is Alvar Hanso before he disappeared in 2002. He may have been the altruistic founder of a philanthropic group (The Hanso Foundation) whose initial aim was to bring peace and harmony to mankind (and all that goody-goody two shoes dreck.) However his goal was quickly subverted from the inside by shady dealings and crookedness from guys like Thompson and McIntyre. Hanso saw his dream being crushed and was planning to make some changes, but his crooked underlings found out, kidnapped him, re-educated/brainwashed/cloned him to bring him back as Thomas Mittelwerk (who I think the Hole3 is) to lead the Foundation in its crooked "starting wars so you don't have to" business.

Persephone is either :
a) a close colleague of Hanso who saw/had knowledge of the kidnapping and took off to save her own skin, and now in her guilt is looking for help (us) to save her boss.
b) related to Hanso and again, trying to use us to bust Hanso
c) Hanso's subconcience/soul/memories that are manifesting themselves through the web to say "J'accuse!" He/it might not realize that he's disembodied from the Mittelwerk host. At this point he may have even forgotten he's Hanso. The foundation could have even stored his "old self" in Joop and created a new persona for the body, complete with plastic surgery as a final insult to Hanso.

I think Hanso / Persephone is telling us to "Save me/him" from his new corrupted form.

Just my two (probably incorrect, but hey it's worth a crack-potted shot) cents.

I think

On the blast door map, we read resting place of Magnus H - Magnus Hanso

What if in 1975 (the year hole3 pic was taken) Magnus passed on the leadership of the foundation onto Hanso, his son

And then the leadership was taken off him in 2002 when he went 'missing'

Hence there is a connection between the pictures...?

He said 'save me' as a young man as he probably didn't want the position as his dad forced him to

But now he says in 2002 'save me' because he's in literal danger

That's my theory on it anyway...

NB:

I'll bite. It seems like there might be something to Namibia, since (1) it is spelled wrong on the map, and (2) it is apparently shown in the small hidden image that someone (sorry, I forget who) found in the Indian Ocean. Maybe it's significant that in the small hidden map the Tropic of Capricorn is visible -- which "connects" Namibia to Brazil. Iran could be the third apex of a triangle, but I see no other connection. (And that's unlikely as a clue, since the triangle would cover a huge part of the globe.

Interesting: The "small map" of Namibia ("Nambia") shows part of Zambia, which is a suspicious hanso location. Also, there's an "I" missing from Namibia ("missing organs", Candle's glass eye, .)

The Magnus = Hanso's father is an interesting theory. I've often thought that he could be Hanso's twin, but I'm sure it's too early in the game to tell for sure. Thank you for posting this theory though. I don't really think the numbers in the hole 3 filename is indicating a date, it just doesn't sound right to me.

...and people thought that I was crazy to look at the sound of the picture! Just a shame I couldn't quite make it out. Thinking back "Pale Sea" isn't to far from "Save Me" soundwise. Ah well.

5/31/2006 07:09:00 PM  
Blogger belly0fdesire said...

fenris: yes, I remember you're initial post regarding the sound produced by running the image through Adobe Audition and saying it sounded like Pale Water or Pale Sea, and almost like Obey... I think taking this route on this image is fascinating, however I still don't think this is how we are supposed to interpret this image.

I can't make out "save me". I mean, if we were looking for "carpet pinata" we could probably convince ourselves that it's in there. I think this is supposed to be interpretted differently.

Sounds a little bit like Kit from Knight Rider running over a cat, imho.

I think if this was the way were were supposed to interpret hole2, it would be much clearer. It's quite a stretch to arrive at the conclusion that the sound is saying "save me" and I don't think TPTB would be satisfied with putting out a clue that makes us stretch our imaginations so far. They could have easily made the "save me" perfectly clear. It may be correct, and if not, then at the very least it is fascinating, but I don't think we should hang "hole2" clue up quite yet.

Still driving me crazy... they had better not let this go without us figuring out what the correct interpretation of this clue is.

Yeah I certainly can't hear "save me" in anything.

On another site though I believe someone made the new image into audio as well and it sounds like it's saying "You're all sick" or something to that effect...

Yeah, that is why I didn't follow it up (and I didn't post the sounds, because, well I'm too lazy to sign up anywhere I can upload it). I remembered seeing a program on the Judas Priest trial where the defence got the jury to hear "I asked her to get me a peppermint, and so she gave me one" backtracking on one of their records. I've also listended to a few questionable EVPs in which you can hear virtually anything if you are listening for it. Really if it is a genuine clue it's a bad choice of delivery. But the way it ties into everything else does make me think it is genuine. Just they used a "code" that was never going to give a definite answer. At least I feel less mad for trying it anyway.

5/31/2006 07:37:00 PM  
Blogger Fenris said...

Anyway, I am wondering now if Alvar and Magnus Hanso are indeed the same person and if they are the one that needs to be saved and is Persephone. Which makes me wonder if the "she" that used to work for the Foundation is a she from the show. Either that or Alvar is a woman and the "used" to bit is because she was overthrown. I think the maddness is back.

Alvar is, I'm fairly sure a name for light-elf. Good spirits from Norse/Germanic mythology (which makes sense if he is Scandinavian).

Technically it's Alfar but Alvar may be another version or it may be where the name came from or something. We haven't had any norse mythos yet and it's entirely possible with the Scandinavia link (and I'm better with Norse then Greece myths anyway).

Perhaps I should revise my statement... After all, q9als2002.gif is not in black in white, but shades of gray. Perhaps there is no black and white, only gray.

Anyway, I'm more interested in trying to figure out what on earth is going on with the filenames.

nb, have you done anymore research into the tangent functions of various numbers? The reason I'm asking is because I think we're being pointed in that direction -- I typed agen75 into my cellphone as a text message (with T9 predictive text turned on), and I got agensl, which I at first took to mean "angels," but now I feel quite certain it means angles, after reviewing nb's information and also this picture:

http://members.aol.com/mattthepale/angles.jpg

So, I think nb's definitely on the right track, somehow.

Now, in the source code for persephone.thehansofoundation.org, we've got 84 lines, with the + being on line 1 -- and the 1 being on line 84. That means something, I think.

Also we have yet to decode the meaning of "q9als2002.gif" . . . I don't really know what to do, unfortunately. I do know, however, that q9 is a similar method of predictive text to t9.

Just a ramndom thought but the gif image is in gif 89a format. This is pretty far fetched but... If you start numbering letters at a=1 b=2 c=3 d=4 e=5 f=6 g=7 h=8 i=9 j=1 k=2 l=3 m=4 n=5 o=6 p=7 q=8...
Then the fisrt part of the q9a corosponds to the gif standard used in the image. Maybe (I said it was a stretch...) the file name is telling us that we need to change the format to see the answer. The Speaker told us that we weren't looking at it right. Maybe we need to convert the file to another format to see the answer.

I know it's out there but I'm brain storming and have no way to follow up on it. Are there any imaging experts out there that know if there is a 28a gif standard and if there is any way of converting from one to the other?

For those who don't know, the favorite icon for every site is located at http://site_hostname/favicon.ico. For example, go to http://www.blogspot.com/favicon.ico , or more appropriately http://hole2.thehansofoundation.org/favicon.ico ... If it doesn't exist, it'll just show up with nothing.

Hi all

Quick point, probably unimportant but NAMBIA scrambles to "I B A MAN" Perhaps a clue to Persephone's indnetity? Since we are not yet even sure what we are trying ot find out, identifying Persephone seems to be one of the things we would want to know.

Also, can someone who has a better grasp of all this than I do a comprenensive list of:
1 - The sites and passwords we have matched up
2 - THe sights we have found that we do not have passwords or activations for, and
3 - Passwords, or expected passwords (Like "save me) that we do not have a place to use.

This would be helpful to people coming in and for thoseo f us willing to spend some time "trying out the keys"

the only thing I have come up with for the q9als2002 is that a quinal is an agricultural measure in some country or other I can't remeber which.
Ok while writing this I had a brainstorm. Try to follow this.
A quinal is equal to a hundred of whatever weight your working with ie. lbs, kgs, etc. soooo
If q9als2002 = quinals2002 100*2002 = 200200.
Ok stay with me.
Now you go to the map on the Electromagnetic Research Institute and you move to those coordinates it puts you directly on the Wellness and Prevention link.
Now you click that.
I checked the world map and nothing.
But THEN I clicked the press release. Compare that to the hole 3 picture and tell me what YOU think.

Perhaps the comment from The Speaker is related to the relation between Alvar and Magnus (whoever this is)/

perhaps "A son nor some medieval Joe" is another anagram.

You can definitely get "Alvar" and "seen" out of it, but nothing consequential.

I'm still working on it.

NB:

well, you didn't get it quite right. I noticed that some of your numbers didn't add up, so I went back over them and crunched them all, and it turns out only one has one of OUR numbers in it.

Observe:

MFI numbers using NB's method...

Brazil 8400*9.9*50.2=4174632 tan=3.077683537

Nambia 8200*35*39.6=11365200 tan=0

Iran 8100*11.2*27.5=2494800 tan=0

D. Rep Congo 1.1*13.27*1000 tan=.3057307815

Botswana 1639833*-0.04*33.74 tan=-.3368636377

Chile 26000*5.81*1000 tan=.8390996

Bolivia 48000 tan=-1.732050808

US Economy 42000*64.7 tan=-1.732060808

US Health 95000*8.26*1000 tan=5.67128182

Mali 4250 tan=-2.747477419

Sudan 41236378*2.55 tan=.0681731607

ALGERIA 32930091*1.22*73.26 tan=2.65994746

UK 309000*4.7*42.2 tan=-1.732050808

ITALY 140000*10.4*1000 tan=-.3639702343

Saudi Arabia 2.58*1000 tan=.8660254038

Iran 8100*11.2*27.5 tan=0

India 2.32*350000*2.09 tan=.8390996312

Indonesia 245452739*1.41*69.87 tan=-.5263260286

-----------------

As you can see, Brazil is clearly the only one that shows the anomaly, "3.077683537"

Where was that number last seen? Here:
http://members.aol.com/mattthepale/angles.jpg
Which is a screenshot of letyourcompassguideyou.com.

Now, then, if our clue was indeed "tangents" ("t9agen75" is fairly close to "tagents") or "angles" ("agen75" can be anagrammed via a textonym to be "angles"), what is the significance of Brazil's numbers equalling 3.077683537?

Am I reaching?

tan 108 = -3.077683537

EgisCodr

(36*10) tan 360 = 0
(36*9) tan 324 = -0.726542528
(36*8) tan 288 = -3.077683537
(36*7) tan 252 = 3.077683537
(36*6) tan 216 = 0.726542528
(36*5) tan 180 = 0
(36*4) tan 144 = -0.726542528
(36*3) tan 108 = -3.077683537
(36*2) tan 72 = 3.077683537
(36*1) tan 36 = 0.726542528

72*36 = 2592
72/36 = 2
72-36 = 36
36*3 = 108
4*27 = 108
2*2*3*3*3 = 108

And, of course:

4 + 8 + 15 + 16 + 23 + 42 = 108

This stuff is for reference, in case they try to pull this stuff sometime in the future.

Don't worry, I'll eventually get around to putting all this on my website.

Hey, if you guys think of anything else, let me know. I want to create a reference chart for dealing with clues!

Streeettttccchhhhh!

If you convert t9agen75 to all letters (using A=1, etc.) you get

tiagenge

gait gene?

age tinge?

And my personal favorite:

giant EEG?
(An electroencephalogram [EEG] is a test to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain.)

I think there is a pattern somewhere

They purposely wouldn't have used a compass for that clue and the 108 was obviosuly more than just a hint to lost as now it's appeared with persephone too

I'm thinking that the maths dosn't really matter but more to the fact that there's just a link between these countries

I'm possibly still thinking that either these places have high magnetic energy (similar to what was sed in S.O.S) or because it's a weather map, something due to climate change...?

Just a note on more angles, 108 degrees west of GM, basically runs through North America (Colorado), 108 degrees East Runs through China. Near where the pointer on the Math.Forecast map gives you where you get the whole "she was an employee of the foundation". of course thats in northern latitudes. In southern lats your out in the Pacific. And off the coast of Australia

I thought this was a bit strange, and it has been mentioned before, but perhaps it's something we should look at a bit more closely...

At http://www.thehansofoundation.org/scripts/flogin.php the stuff after the crc check always seems to be a random generation of one of these six items when you keep refreshing it:

crc=15&codegen=mwerk_obsol
crc=23&cyph=b64
crc=15&hstn=asyl
crc=23&4fing=cut2
crc=15&pass=harrison
crc=15&auth=ahanso

Since Persephone has already used a b64 cyph (base 64 cypher) as a clue (Clue #36), I thought the rest of these might be of importance, too. Any thoughts?

Theory

Marvin Candle expresses a sense of emotion when mentioning the incident in the Swan Orientation Video. I saw this more as a sense of guilt rather than "hey, I lost my arm." Marvin Candle, or whatever his real name is, believes his actions or inactions led to the death of someone significant. I believe that person was Alvar Hanso.

The Magnus Hanso gravesite on the door in the hatch references Alvar Hanso with the title of Magnus - a great man.

to be continued

Theory (cont'd)

Alvar Hanso was first and foremost a manufacturer of weapons, especially high-tech weaponry. His attempts to better humanity can easily be explained as self preservation.

He had already initiated the life extension program on himself based on the age of Joop. Remember, Hanso was selling arms during WWII, so he isn't some young guy, and the age of Joop means that the life extension program began much earlier than what we think it may be. Joop may just be the first successful experiment. How many failures did they have before that?

The eradication of disease, including mental illness, would be something of significant interest to a man that may live to be 2-3 times longer than the average person.

Cloning is the next logical step in the process. Even the life extension program doesn't guarantee a person immortality. This can explain Hanso's interest in genetics and experimentation with animals in apparently hostile environments. If it is possible to create a Polar Bear that can tolerate tropical temperatures, then could the logic be reversed and allow man to live in hostile environments as well?

6/01/2006 09:50:00 AM  
Blogger K.C. Farmer said...

Theory (cont'd)

With Alvar Hanso dead, well momentarily, a power vacuum was created among his followers and partners like the Widmores. Those loyal to Hanso, would proceed with a plan to clone their dead leader, a man by now they would view as being almost god-like. Other factions would attempt to take over, causing a rift in a once cooperative relationship. This might explain why we get a sense that there are more than one group of Others, and why one group refers to themselves as being the "good" ones.

Persephone has provided clues to the corruption within the Hanso Foundation. This SAVE ME clue is quite interesting. I think she is referring to Alvar Hanso - or more precisely his clone. If the incident happened recently, which I believe it has, then the clone of Alvar Hanso would be very young. It's quite possible the clone could be a baby.

Here's another point. I believe the Missing Organs are the Losties. The primary Missing Organ is Claire's baby - the Alvar Hanso clone.

When the others take the children, they do so because they are seeking Alvar's clone. The "Bad" Others seek him to prevent his eventual return, while the "Good" others seek him to restore Alvar - perhaps even accelerate his age and restore his memories.

So, why let Claire return to the Losties? I think the "Good" Others are more concerned with the "Bad" Others than they are with the Losties - who in their minds might just be Organ Donors for their members. Ethan did return to bring Claire back to the Others, and then Charlie killed him. If the "Good" Others showed special attention towards Claire's baby, who they beleive is the Alvar clone, then the "Bad" Others might figure it out and focus their attention there.

Yes, all of this is speculation based on the clues so far. Just trying to piece together a coherent message from the clues thus far.
