Looks like the head Massive Dynamics gal is on to there being something not right with Olivia....
I found it funny they kept using the "Walternate" name, as I'm pretty sure fans coined it before the show was using it....
EDIT: Oddly enough, the "Numbers Stations" (mentioned in the last episode) is an actual conspiracy theory. I just did some preliminary looks at it,
and it's something I wasn't aware of...which is surprising, due to a former career interest of mine. Will have to look into it more.
The current thinking (and seems to be supported) is that they are spy broadcasts, using one-pad encryption (unbreakable due to the one-shot random
characters, and can be manually decoded, if you have the cypher pad). The amount and grouping of the numbers is the same, and there have been such
pads discovered when spies were found, and such broadcasts were used as evidence in a few spy cases.
As for Marconi hearing them when he started, no mention of that. However, a Russian scientist did slightly send similar code to a Russian battleship,
prior to Marconi stealing the radio from Tesla...of course. (and yes, it's a fact...the Supreme Court even ruled so, of course, no help to Tesla, as I
believe it was after his death)...
