I just wanted to make a few points regarding the Rendlesham binary code message.

You can see the raw binary code, written down in Penniston's notebook, during the encounter, here. Binary Notes

The message has been decoded as the following text, followed by a series of coordinates:

EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY. CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE. FOURTH COORDINATE CONTINUOUS.

I'd like to say that I consider Pennistons testimony honest from his perspective. I'm less convinced of the provenance of the code. Here is why...

1) The code began life as a message which then had to be encoded in ASCII, and converted to binary. That took effort.

2) The code was not important enough to ensure it was delivered in a timely manner. A decade is not good time for a message of any importance.( they didn't try to deliver it again, instead waiting while Penniston took a decade to share it)

3) Raw binary is a far more bloated way to deliver an English language message. That's a dumb way to deliver a a message to be memorised as there are far more characters.

4) binary can easily be corrupted compared to English.

5) why not print the message / laser it on the trees or floor? Can we really expect an alien brain interface to just work with humans? Isn't that a lot of effort to go to for a message that would only be transferred by touch, in a an unecessary intermediate format?

Finally whoever, it was who went to the effort of creating, encoding and transferring the message must have believed one of two things:

1) the message would be believed and accepted.
2) the message would not be believed and accepted.

Which is more likely considering the redundant double encoding of the message (ascii and binary). Encoding which lengthened the message hugely, and made it far more likely to be corrupted and unreadable?

I don't believer Penniston lied, which leaves us with the following:

- Something generated a message with some meaning to convey
- they made it less memorable by encoding as ascii
- by using binary they increased the length of message rendering it vulnerable to corruption and harder to remember
- they had the opportunity, time and ability to transfer this message to Penniston by some method

Conclusion. The message was of no real importance and was not the point of the encounter. The real importance was artifice. A large amount of unecessary effort went into its creation, encoding and delivery. The message could not reasonably be expected to stand up to inspection.

I think a couple of more interesting questions beg answers. 1. Is it that binary code only works for the English language because the simplicity of binary compared to the complexities of the English language could make it come up with multiple answers.
And 2. If 1 is correct then the aliens communicate in the English language.
Those 2 answers, if correct, opens up a whole new can of worms.

That's a very interesting suggestion!

I'm not sure, but it would have made more sense to me to transmit the ASCII code not the binary. It's more compact and efficient that binary. Binary offers no advantage.

Why communicate the message in such a way?

And if the creators can speak English, no matter where or when they are from, why not transmit the message in English?

It could be argued that it was to prevent the message being altered by Penniston.

That leads to the conclusion that the message was of some importance. I don't think it was, the current decoding reads badly, unencoded English would have been a better choice. Also, the event is over 3 nights.

Was it so important to deliver that it required 3 visits, multiple craft and a badly designed touch activated interface.

There is no binary code and if there was why did he not reveal this fact until 2010??


I just remembered I got a message from et 30 years ago, look its wrote down, it must be true.

That's got to be the conclusion so many people reach hasn't it? I think you've put that in a really clear and succinct way.

In that way it doesn't matter if the message came from time travellers, aliens, intelligent balls of plasma, tickle me Elmo or humans. No aspect of it is believable from the message, to the encoding through to the delivery.

Whilst I believe Penniston is honestly delivering the message he was given, thinking about it, I can't imagine anyone could have gone to the effort of constructing this and expected it to be believable.

You may find this interview from 2011 with Penniston shortly after the binary codes were released interesting.



ETA: There is also this discussion of Penniston's confusion in the interview as well




Penniston struggles with this interview as he seems to get confused over exactly what his story is regarding the codes.


But if you can't be bothered listening through it all then an important snippet is




Jim Penniston - "Angelia, ones and zeros... I don't know what they mean, deciphered or not. These are what the experts are saying it says. I mean I don't know how to do that,its beyond my capability..........we should get those decoded...I said yeah we could, but its probably just gibberish...."

Then later in the interview he says:

"I knew what those 6 pages said before they were deciphered."



Also besides the message supposedly 'transmitted' to Penniston's brain there were also co-ordinates 'allegedly' contained in the binary code to

1. An ancient city in Central America
2. A location in South America
3. Sedona, North America
4. Giza, Egypt
5. An island in Greece
6. A location in China
7. Woodbridge or the never proven to exist Hy Brasil


His story runs almost incongruently with all the other witnesses stories. No one else saw or touched a defined craft, no one else saw glyphs on it, no one else received any sort of code (Penniston's original witness statement confirms this as well). Which makes me think he either made all this up or someone has been messing with his mind.

Jim Penniston is also about to launch a book about the Rendlesham Codes in the near future.

Make of that what you will.

However I consider his testimony unreliable and the whole binary code story something totally irrelevant to the Rendlesham story.

Not really, any digital hardware technician can do that. If you want to ask the question why did aleens do that, I would agree, why bother with a rudimentary hexadecimal computer code?

They could learn english from english broadcast radio and tv signals being transmitted at light speed into space for decades.

Something fishy about that evidence…

I'm more interested in the markings on the side of that craft…

Images

Some of them match other drawings from other eras and cultures. Maybe the binary thing is a diversion, I don't know.

Don't make the mistake of thinking the aliens and cryptids are pure physical entities. We live in a spiritual reality, we are not told of the reason or status....except in the Bible. Mystery Babylon....we gotta figure that out. Tell ya later what the words in the Bible say, after 100 years of study that's how I came to know .... The beautiful Koran is not up to snuff compared to the original Scripture, the Quran says so!!...the writings of Moses and the sayings of Jesus are still to be revered.

prophecy in the Scripture is unmatched....for accuracy, did you know that? Scripture says the spirits we battle with can take the form of any two or four legged creature or winged.....there is your alien entity!!... simple from the Biblical view, huh!!

Definitely not although Halt has hinted at chemical debriefings being applied to Penniston (like Larry Warren) he has always seemed supportive of Penniston and dismissive of Warren. Penniston's relationship with John Burroughs seems to have broken down now as well. In one podcast (LINK) both Halt and Penniston really put the boot in to him. Meanwhile Larry and John Burroughs seem to have been more conciliatory towards each other in recent times. But that may well change.

There are links to many podcasts and other resources here in one of my previous posts if it helps.

I can't guarantee whether they are all still available but the constant disagreements and loyalty shifts are an interesting sideline to the story as well.

Sorry but what has this got to do with Rendlesham binary codes?

I'll be working my way through them, thanks!

I'm fairly convinced that Halt knows far more than he tells, but that he tries to keep well within his oath. I'd suspect that what he doesn't tell is his insurance.

On a more concrete note, the binary code is either 'fiction for profit' or disinformation. There are no other alternatives that are credible in my opinion. Disinformation this late in the day means that far more is being covered up than the storage of nuclear warheads.

Hard proof of ongoing disinformation or large amounts of circumstantial evidence would be very revealing.

That is what a number of the witnesses and researchers believe too. Although it's also a possibility he has been 'messed with' as well.

I think the only conclusion I can offer is that we still don't know what it was. There are still far too many questions left unanswered. One of them has to be that if there really was some kind of craft then where did it go during the day?

"if there really was some kind of craft then where did it go during the day?" is probably the smartest insight I've read about the case sir.

If the event happened and was not natural phenomena then it is very unlikely the visit was at a random location. It was quite deliberately chosen. It follows that the event was multiple nights and therefore involved a specific task.
That task was not achieved in a few hours and was likely to have been specific. Why didn't the event run for the full 72 hours? Why the need for a break, or to avoid daylight?

What was worth returning for? Returning from where? It seems unlikely it was outside of earth, the UK or even the local area.

Whilst I'm not ruling out any options, there is little about the events that couldn't be recreated now. Smoke, mirrors and a lot of time and cash could replicate the perceptions. Having said that, I'm not sure the technology was available 35+ years ago, or why someone would waste 3 nights worth of deception, people management and technical / hardware development.

Whoever 'they' were / are, I certainly don't think they are thousands or even hundreds of years ahead. I'd wager 20 for most aspects if a staged illusion / props. Fully functional vehicles... maybe 100. And their task was specific and had a desirable and necessary outcome (for them). If it genuinely involved multiple craft then that task was either a search of some kind or a diversion.

1) The code began life as a message which then had to be encoded in ASCII, and converted to binary. That took effort.


Or maybe no effort. Anyone with BSD/Unix knowledge could have done it -- even in 1980 (I confess it is easier now -- eg..

% echo EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY. CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE. FOURTH COORDINATE CONTINUOUS. | xxd -b | cut -d " " -f 2-4

should print the precise binary equivalent ... with newlines of course (;*)




4) binary can easily be corrupted compared to English.


I wonder how easily. " EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY. CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE. FOURTH COORDINATE CONTINUOUS.:" requires about 630 binary values, or bits, of contiguous data eg .

% echo EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY. CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE. FOURTH COORDINATE CONTINUOUS.: | xxd -b | sed -r 's/ 0/ /g' | cut -d ":" -f 2 | cut -b 2- | cut -d ' ' -f 1-6 | tr -d \012 | tr -d \04

outputs

100010110110001010000100110010011111010010100000110101001001001100111110011100100000100111110001100100000100100010101011001101100000110011101001001101 010010110010101110010000010000111001111100111010101001001001100111010101011001111101010110100110100000100011010011111010010010000010100001001100100000 110011101000101101010010000011010010101100101000001000001100010010101101000001100111010000111000101010111001000001000110100111110101011010010101010010 010000100000100001110011111001111101001010001001001001100111010000011010100100010101000001000011100111110011101010100100100110011101010101100111110101 01101001101011100111010000101

Would 10% random corruption of that data be any harder to read (once converted back to ascii) than replacing (or deleting) random 10% of the ASCII equivalent with random ASCII characters (including non-printing)? I don't know. I wish I knew the relevant utilities to test that idea.

Anyway, consider that the final output would be parsed by a massively parallel-processing computer with excellent OCR and error-correction facilities -- the human brain. Binary is (I guess) as good a way as any to preserve message data.

And that's why Morse Code is used. You only need to be able to recognize two characters -- a short 0, and a long 1. Sure beats having to learn a whole new frickin' alphabet (Cyrillic, anyone?)

EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY. CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE. FOURTH COORDINATE CONTINUOUS. Anyone want to explain what this means? Continuous for planetary advance? Are we about to get a promotion? Fourth coordinate continuous? Does that mean we're finally getting the f$ck outta here? Bout friggin time! Maybe I'm wrong? Whadda you think?
