First of all I want to thank the OP for starting a thread that they believed would generate some intelligent discussion on the RFI binary code. I
know their intentions were such, but unfortunately many of the reply posts are just opinions, mere conjecture, outright fallacies and
misrepresentations posited and portrayed as facts.
Opinions are fine and warranted as part of a free and open society, but making statements as if they were true facts, without any supporting
references, smacks of a tactic of disinformation campaigns. It is fine to say such things as: "I believe Jim Penniston is a liar", but not flat out
state emphatically: "Jim Penniston is a liar", as that is unfounded and libelous.
I will attempt in this post to refute the most egregious of the false and misleading statements in the above posted replies and provide links and
references to the factual and truthful source material.
First of all, you can now find the complete 16 (not 5, not 6, not 13) notebook pages of binary code, including the correct 2nd coordinate (the EiRF
book has a typo) and all the gory details of how it was decoded, interpreted and parsed into the full RFI Binary Message at:
. For the complete decoded and interpreted message from the 16-pages, go to:
Also, the OFFICIAL
website, overseen by Jim Peniston and John Burroughs is at:
Jim Penniston did not recall all the binary code in his hypnosis session on Sept. 10, 1994, he mentioned the EXISTANCE of the binary code.
He wrote the binary code onto 16 pages of his
notebook at his home in Ipswitch (off base) after a fitful night's sleep because he was so bothered by the 1's and 0's going through his mind. Only
writing them down gave him relief. The details of this experience, including images of the 16-pages of binary code (albeit out of sequence in the
book) and the story of the binary transmission and the complete decoded and interpreted message (with a typo in the second coordinate), are laid out
in the new book, just published April 15th: "Encounter in Rendlesham Forest", available at Amazon:
"Encounter in Rendlesham Forest"
Jim has NEVER referred to the craft as a "UFO". He has always used the term
"craft of unknown origin
" - . Although the term "UFO" is used in the
subtitle of the book, one must remember that its meaning is "UNIDENTIFIED Flying Object" - it does NOT mean alien spacecraft, it does NOT mean
extraterrestrial - it simply means UNIDENTIFIED - we have NO idea where it came from!
Jim has NEVER used the term "aliens" or "ET's". In fact, in his hypnosis session referenced above, he refers to the entities responsible for the
"craft of unknown origin" as "us from the future" - in other words Earthly human time travelers from the future.
Jim NEVER said the craft had occupants, aliens or otherwise. On the contrary, he believed it was an un-piloted drone, as it had no windshield, no
windows and no portals of any type. Plus, it was fairly small - a triangular shape about 9 feet on the sides and about 6 feet high. To see what the
craft REALLY looks like according to the direct witness, Jim Penniston, see: www.therendleshamforestincident.com...
This 3D rendering was created with the consultation of Jim, and an actual physical 3D model was created from this rendering - all with Jim's
oversight. So, it is the closest visualization to what he actually saw in Dec. 1980. Do NOT believe, or take for accurate, anything else you may see
on the Internet, in published articles, or TV documentaries - go to the true source.
Since the craft was un-piloted, it is reasonable to assume that it was computer controlled, or at the least remotely controlled by digital means (as
ALL of OUR remotely controlled vehicles are). Therefore, any communication coming from the craft would highly likely be in digital (binary) form.
Encoding such a message as an image would be even MORE complex, less universal and more difficult to decode properly.
The original decoding of only the first 5 notebook pages (out of 16 total) by the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" program in October 2010 (first
broadcast on Dec. 30, 2010) was later determined to be incorrect, as they used the DMS (Degrees, Minutes, Seconds) format, instead of Decimal
Degrees. See: www.therendleshamforestincident.com...
Also, for a full detailed explanation of how the coordinates
were parsed from the original decoded and interpreted binary see:
Analysis of Geographic Coordinates
The first coordinate, 52.0942532N 13.131269W, is NOT that of Woodbridge as it would require the longitude being E(ast), not (West) as it is. This
would mean a 2-bit error in the binary at that point, which I feel is highly unlikely. Plus the decimal point in the longitude would be in the wrong
place and be inconsistent with the other 6 longitude coordinate numbers. In addition, that particular coordinate appears twice in the message (both
times with a "W"), and is referred to in the second occurrence as "ORIGIN". See reference links above to the documented parsing of the coordinates.
There are other reasons why this first coordinate MUST be "Hy Brasil" (or at least that geographic location), but I am not at liberty to discuss that
at this time.
As for the binary being decoded using ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), which was developed in the 60s and has become a
WORLD standard for almost ALL digital data transfer and storage, do you realize that EVERY digital device we use - computers, cell phones, GPS
devices, MP3 players - ALL use ASCII encoded binary. Even satellite data, both military and commercial use ASCII encoded binary. So, it is perfectly
logical that a highly advanced civilization ("us from the future"?) would clearly use that communication method in their technology, especially if
they wanted to communicate with US.
And why English? Well that is the "universal language" used in most commercial international communications. 75% of all telex messages and telegrams
are sent in English. 80% of computer data is processed and stored in English. Most satellite transmissions are carried in English. English is the
main language of international business, diplomacy, and science. It is a common language that a Russian businessman and a Japanese businesswoman are
likely to use to communicate. English is the language of maritime communication and international air traffic control, and it is used even for
internal air traffic control in countries where it is not a native language. See:
"English Facts: Why You Should Learn English
?" (you need to
scroll down to s the text article). Plus, the craft had landed IN ENGLAND!!
