My deepest apologies for the bump, but if anyone still wants to try to decode the binary, I have a tip.

But first, I'm sure we all know by now that the standard for binary didn't exist until like 1986, so you will get non-printable characters.

Alright, I can keep going now.
I am a programmer myself and I love what I do, and I can guarantee you you don't need to be a "guru" to decode binary. You can do it easily, and you can do it without an ASCII chart.

First a few basics (that I believe are explained in the first few posts, but it doesn't hurt to post this here again):

A bit is either 1 or 0. 1 means "on", 0 means "off". A byte is composed of 8 bits.

00000000

Each bit in a byte means something it's "on". The further right bit, when it's "on", means 1. The next bit to the left, means 2, the next one, means 4, the next one means 8, the next one means 16, and so on.

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

So to count in binary, you sum every value of each "on" value.
00000001 = 1
00000010 = 2
00000011 = 3
00000100 = 4
00000101 = 5

And so on.

To get actual letters in binary, you can first "separate" a bit in a 3-bit set and in a 5-bit set, like below:

000 00000

The left set will define whether a letter is capital or not. The second set will define what the letter actually is.
The first set will be either "010", or "011".

When it's 010, the letter is a capital letter.
When it's 011, the letter is a lower case letter.

Now to get the actual letters, you take the second set, and simply recite your ABCs in your head.You know A is the first letter of the alphabet, so to make an A, you take the second set and put the 1 in the one's place, like so:

00001

Then you know B is the second letter of the alphabet, so you put the 1 in the 2's place:

00010

Likewise, you know C is the third letter of the alphabet, so you put 1 in the 2 and 1's place, like so:

00011

You know Z is the 26th letter in the alphabet, so you put:

11010

So to get a full letter, you just put both sets together:

01000001 = A
01100001 = a
01000010 = B
01100010 = b
01000011 = C
01100011 = c
01011010 = Z
01111010 = z

As a final note, 00100000 means a space. " ".

Don't believe me getting letters out of a binary text is easy without an ASCII chart? Go ahead, compare those letters to an ASCII chart.

The dude must have had pages of code for it to represent the text mentioned, e.g. the following:

01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111 00101100 00100000 01000001 01010100 01010011 00100000 01010111 01101111 01110010 01101100 01100100 00100001

Has a nice message!

In order for the message to translate back into English, it had to have been encoded in English to start with as in the above binary code example (it started in English, therefore will finish in English).

The above fact alone can point to one of two things:

1. The whole thing is bullisht
2. The message was encoded in English, somehow created by that person and/or was MAN-MADE of this earth and intentionally/accidentally projected into his mind.

Binary code represents numerical (and later alpha numerical data) - for me as a programmer to translate the binary back into something I would have to make an assumption:

a. The originating code was an 'English or English-Like' language
b. The originating code was a computational language either low level (machine language) or some intermediary or high level language

But the fact that it translated back into something tangible leaves little doubt as to the origins.

Star for this~! Nice to see someone with experience and intelligence post instead of speculation. To me, this is a HUGE stretch out on a limb, the only other way they would know how we spoke English would be to record our/the soldiers conversations and some how convert it enough to get it close enough to state what their intentions are.

I don't remember if the show mentioned when exactly he started writing down the images of binary he was seeing in his mind but isn't there a scientific way to date ink or pencil marking to get some kind of guess as to when the code was written down on paper? If there is, then someone needs to do it so we can see just how recent those journal entries are. It may well tell us if he is full of BS or if he did indeed just keep it hidden out of fear of being called a nutjob.

You are 100% right. I only wish the majority here was able to exercise simple logic, reason and common sense.

If he did write it from memory or because it just came into his head then if the translation is correct then religion is finally clearly poo and we are not alone nor have we ever been which kinda seems about right when you consider the size of the earth and its solar system to the rest! Also the energies out in the cosmos are just ......dont have the words! And one thing we do know is that energy makes practically anything possible or we would be here nor would the cosmos!

If you had followed this story in more detail, you would know that Sgt. Jim Penniston believes the message came from humans from the future, so they would have known English.

"Experience" and "intelligence" are not enough to post here. You also need to be informed.

"Experience" and "intelligence" are not enough to post here.

Man receiving a "telepathic" message in ASCII code, writes it down in his book *afterwards* from memory ("01001" etc..)....sits on it for 30 years and does not know what it is.

After 30 years, all of a sudden "remembers" he received an important message.....which by coincidence happens at the same time when Linda Moulton Howe wants to write a book and History channel gets interested.

We KNOW for a fact that Howe & History channel made a deal with them, be it for solely "funding" their planned return to the UK..or whatever..in other words there was money in play which by miraculous coincidence produced that message at the right time

You are right, experience and intelligence are not enough to post here - maybe its the fact that reading nonsense like that that does actually DRAIN intelligence out of everyone...

After he realized that the ASCII story doesn't make sense (since ASCII was not invented in 1981
) he quickly changed it to "men from the future"...which would (for him) explain why they'd beam ASCII code 0s and 1s into someone's brain

Of course..for anyone else who is halfway sane..the thought of ASCII binary code used to transmit a "telepathic message"..ok....i think i need to stop now because, to be honest, its just TOO MUCH.

lol. Do you know what i THINK? I think the notebook is in possession of either Howe or History Channel, and there will never be an investigation whatsoever.

Needless to say, it doesn't even NEED an investigation since the fact that ASCII was not known in 1981 for me already proves it was a fraud/hoax. What more evidence do we need for this?

This is awesome! The very thing which keeps me addicted to ATS. I love this subject and think that these are the openings to disclosure we are all waiting for.

I am off to watch the video now but from the members comments it made my decission to watch it even though I am limited on time just now.

I'm not a huge fan of the RendleSHAM incident to be honest. For me, the witnesses do not impress me as they keep changing their stories. Burrows, for instance, has changed his story a number of times. I'm far more interested in what the NSA where doing out at Orford Ness and just how good is the over the horizon radar code named Cobra Mist!? It may be if Cobra Mist gave out massive amounts of electro magnetic energy that the witnesses were suffering vivid hallucinations brought on by being immersed in these fields...

I understand that Penniston copied some symbols into his notebook that were illuminated on the side of the craft

And then he received the binary code telepathically which may be decoded from little-endian extended ascii into broken english

Why didn't the UFO just print the english message along the side of the chassis instead of the strange symbols

Or maybe the binary code is just disinformation from the military designed to make us think that these craft belong to humans from the future

Humans who send a craft back in time featuring symbols which match no known symbology

Perhaps the symbols were some profoundly important message from another civilisation

Or simply an error message like 'segmentation fault - press the triangle symbol to reboot your ufo'

From the Wikipedia article on ASCII

Work on ASCII formally began on October 6, 1960, with the first meeting of the American Standards Association's (ASA) X3.2 subcommittee. The first edition of the standard was published during 1963, a major revision during 1967, and the most recent update during 1986.

So an ealier version of ASCII did exist at that time. How do you think the early PET, Apple, Atari, Commodore, etc. home computers encoded text, not to mention mainframes that preceded them?

1001001....S.O.S! Save us from people who think that anything was CRACKED! Whether one group say's this is a broadcast from the USAF or another group say's it is E.T.....I believe neither of the two...USAF or E.T. is going to be using Binary....the USAF is certainly not going to be....that went out in the eary 70's. LOL!

Obviously the binary has been encoded with english language... you cannot translate:
LANGUAGE > BINARY > DIFFERENT LANGUAGE

As some people calling "fake" as always... consider the possibility this could be a human that wrote this message. Then you will see it is not "fake", because it bloody well happened!.

For a start this could be someone from the future, who knows?

To me it looks like they are trying to point to Atlantis (if it is indeed where some people claim it is). There are alot of mysteries with the people of atlantis... maybe they didn;t just dissapear, and they have sent a message from the future.

Not saying i believe it, but open your mind.

Check this thread out, and then look at the picture below (the co-ordinates in op's link)

Don't have the time to read through the whole thread, sorry if the atlantis connection has been noticed already.

It could always be a hoax.But that does not mean it is "fake". Anyone shouting and spamming "fake" is ignorant.

It occurred to me that it might be possible to send, not necessarily a spacecraft, but a molecular machine back in time

Perhaps this tiny machine would be constructed from neutrinos or some assembly of particles with zero mass

Accelerate this assembly to the speed of light at which point the assembly could continue to accelerate under its own power

As it accelerates it travels further and further back in time to some predetermined location in spacetime whereupon it comes to rest

Then this molecular machine would aggregate matter in its vicinity to grow into the macroscopic device that actually performs the data-gathering mission

Finally this machine would encapsulate the gathered data into some vessel deposited somewhere safe perhaps in the remote solar system

You could keep trying to send this molecular machine back in time until you get lucky and everything goes to plan

At which point the data capsule would magically appear in the prescribed location within your own timeline

Binary code is extremely hard to do.

Here is another example where it's been used and this one fascinates me.

By hand, possibly - but it's simple with freely available online tools, as discussed in the earlier thread on this topic at:

Sorry what I ment was its extremely hard nearly impossible to do it off the top of your head and to put binary code into a picture!?!?!? Well the mind boggles

Im not too up on using coordinates but would Rendelsham Forrest be on the same line as Hy- Brasil as in the photo above.
