Clue #113 - Fragment Codes "25KOCJS6S6" & "FRXRUK9TQ"















Fragment Code "25KOCJS6S6" can be seen in the background of the flash intro for valenzettiequation.com. The video fragment is of Mittlwerk saying, "The villages of (?) and (?) have allowed us to test our vaccine on them."

Fragment Code "FRXRUK9TQ" was found via the hacker from thelostexperience.com. The hacker's many clues led us to check the subdomain grendel.thelostexperience.com. There was where we found what appeared to be a blank gif but when the contrast was adjusted, we found this glyph. The video fragment is of a guy asking, " These are people, innocent human beings, and we're just..." Then Mittlewerk says, "If you knew with mathmatical certainty that you could end all famine, war, and poverty, what would you do?"

Thanks to the insider, dazzedelf, Marc, and topcat24 for emailing us about this code!

I think TWM is referring to places where the vaccine has *already* been tested, and in another clip we'll hear about the outcome of that testing. If this is the same vaccine from the series, this could be where we learn about how the "cure is worse than the disease". Keep bringing on the TWM clips!

Blogger Erich said...

"...have allowed us to test our vaccine on them." is a tricky phrase, since you can't tell if it's something they're about to do (hence the orientation feel of this meeting), or something they've already done and are discussing. My feeling is that it is the former, and goes with "so when you go in you have to keep up the story."

I don't really think any of this will lead directly back to THE island.

8/22/2006 10:05:00 AM  
Blogger sean said...

this would mean the vaccine and virus is somehow connected to the LEP.

8/22/2006 10:05:00 AM  
Blogger n.i.k. said...

I was just now thinking the following: if the vaccine makes things worse somehow, could it be that the quarantined folks on board the Helgus are being sent to the island as it's somehow protected/hidden from the rest of the world, so that they can die out separately, and maybe avoid spreading the infection to the rest of the world, simultaneously wiping the remaining inhabitants of the island out in the process? Perhaps this has been done before on a smaller scale?

8/22/2006 10:08:00 AM

my thinking is that the island was a thriving tribal land before the DI came along. the natives built the statue of the 4 toe foot. but in order for the DI to be conducted without interruption, THF created a virus to kill all the natives so they wouldnt get in the way. maybe the vaccine wasnt a vaccine. it was the full virus.

8/22/2006 10:09:00 AM

they then quarantined the DI workers in hatches while the virus laid devastation to the former communities.

Great observations, Grimlock and Erich! Based off each of your ideas/observations, here's what I think could be the case, providing that the virus/vaccine stuff is real and not just a cover-story (which I'm not ruling out):

The way the vaccine is tested is by adminstering it to a given population and immediately thereafter sending in known infected individuals. The "story" in this case could involve disguises to make the known infected people appear as though they're natives to the target communities. This could be what's so terrible and unethical about THF's actions: large-scale dangerous testing of experimental pharmaceuticals carried out on human subjects, with Foundation-directed humans as carriers of the pathogen to make for more rigorous testing...harsher environment may yield more results.

If that's the case, what's your explanation for TWM & co. referencing the targeted site as one that had previously been abandoned or figured as a last resort for SPIDER, and the relevance of TWM showing the DHARMA orientation film featuring *the island* to his audience? I'm not assaulting you here, just curious as to what your thoughts are relevant to these points. These lead me to believe that it's unlikely that the target is anywhere other than "Lost island".

Hmm, interesting... this fragment suggests (from a visual point of view) that all the Mittlewerk fragments may go together, after the old film of Hanso. I reckon it makes sense for "So when you go in, you have to keep up the story" to come at some point after this fragment, too - presumably, with some further explanation in between. What do you think?

Just checked MTP's theory and I love it. My own train of thought was that perhaps TWM wasn't so bad...maybe Hanso inadvertantly set the process in motion to end the world, and TWM is trying to quietly fix it. But agree that Matt's version fits more things AND is way more evil. Hence fun!

I also agree makomk. So far, we've seen nothing that would indicate any TWM footage preceeding the showing of the orientation film.

GCWH PIFHGUV QVWP YSH ASDDUK is enciphered using a substitution alphabet.

This means that to decode, you take the following table:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
C*HL*NTSO*D****MG*A*ERI*W*

And plug in each letter to get its decoded value.

This frag is an intriguing addition to the TWM sequence, in light of everyone's theories (n.i.k., etc.). Maybe they give the predicted doomsday-super-virus to the villagers and then test their new vaccine on the infected folks to see if it works. [E.G. the X-File consortium testing their black oil vaccine in the same way--infect/vaccinate] Perhaps they told the villagers that it was a two-part vaccine as well, and not tell them that part one was the infecting phase (i.e., keeping up the story). OR (as alluded to by the coughing in the audience) have they secrectly infected the audience (secretly because they are not sure if the vaccine works yet), who will then be shipped via the steamer to the island, infecting the villagers, and they will then supply the vaccine to the villagers after they are infected (and to themselves as well)? Perhaps the orientation audience is being duped in the same way that the observation hatch people were duped? E.G., you are going to do this to someone and observe them, when in actuality, we are doing it to you! Ow, my head hurts.

I think Rachel's e-mail is designed to get everyone to realize the live events are about to hapen, not that ApolloCandy.com is going to yield a clue of its own.

After all, it looks much better for their purposes to have several thousand folks in Central Park than several hundred.

Okay guys...we've got to solve this TLE thing. It's on full force:

From their earlier source code:
"Solve this riddle to find my name. My name is the key, but the lock will appear at a time of my choosing"
"GCWH PIFHGUV QVWP YSH ASDDUK"

From today's source code:
"The lock is ready. Bring your key. The light of truth awaits."

What do we do now?

The general consensus is that the cryptogram "GCWH PIFHGUV QVWP YSH ASDDUK" trnaslates to "This monster grim was called", a quote from Beowulf that refers to the mythological beastie Grendel. So this could be Gee's "name", which is the "key" to open a lock we haven't found yet.

ok, I have just visited apollo, there is a link to the UK distribution. It says:
Back in 1964, when that very first, sinfully scrumptious Apollo Bar planted a 10,000-watt smile on J. Pickersweet's face, could M. David Benson have possibly imagined his brilliant confection would one day be available worldwide?

The Apollo Candy Company is proud to announce the Apollo Bar, the world's most delectable chocolate sensation, is now available, for the first time ever, in the UK!!!

How can I get one, you ask?

It's easy! We're giving them away! While supplies last, simply go to your nearest Forbidden Planet store (from Thurs 24th August) and say the daily code. Trust us! Your tummy will thank you.

Thursday's code is "Alvar Hanso".

Olerica-

It's simple... they continue to tweak what is written on the site, but everyone is not checking with everyone else!! I had pointed out in the beginning that it mention Dark Chocolate changed... originally all the mentions were for Dark Chocolate but the pictures were of milk chocolate bars, so the picture of the bar & the woman about to take a bite could not have been a real Apollo bar.

Then they added artwork that had pictures of what could be dark chocolate, but now the site mentions milk chocolate in a lot of places.

Plain or Dark chocolate is more prominent in the chocolate houses/makers of Europe, but I'd say milk chocolate is more popular sale-wise in the USA, so we're seeing an issue that can't be settled for sure until Thursday in the UK @ Forbidden Planet (I used to frequent that store, damn!), but will have to wait a few more hours until the Central Park SummerStage release.

We will know which bar it is, then, but the wrapper has ALWAYS read Dark Chocolate.

I suspect when they say "Summer Stage" they really just mean the stage area the Summer Stage uses. Not sure if you ahve ever been to Summer Stage. I have, it is a large enclosed area where they will be able to control traffic, has concession stands already set up. etc. I suspect we will be lined up outside the area, as if it were a show, paraded through, given our one bar and sent out the other side.

If you are nervous from a security point of view and want an escort, I would be happy to coordinate with you, let me know.

You beat me to it AmbientBlu!

It is looking like that this "vaccine" has not been deployed yet, which is what is going to happen in Sri Lanka.

Piecing together what little Mittelwerk stuff we have, I'd say that this operation (perhaps the SPIDER Protocol) is going to root out the wheat from the chaff in the human population.

With the failure of the DHARMA Initiative, operations have stepped up since the Valenzetti Equation's result has been confirmed as being very soon ("and now we have to take radical action").

THF operatives move into the villages as humanitarian personnel administering medical aid ("so when you go in, you must keep up the story") and dispense the "vaccine" amongst the population. That vaccine will either identify genetic disorders and eliminate the host ("we must hit precise genetic targets") or cause a violent reaction in which only the strongest subjects survive.

These personnel know full well what the vaccine is and the effects it will have (hence the guy's statement to Mittelwerk), which means that Mittelwerk's intentions ARE known, and those intentions, as discussed in MtP's excellent essay is the rebirth of the world through genetic purity.

Thanks to MtP for putting what's becoming our common beliefs into a much more coherent format!
