today, for my first time, i saw the kryptos sculpture which is at the cia headquarters.
image and texts on kryptos from math.ucsd.edu...
Kryptos is a sculpture located on the grounds of CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Installed in 1990 by artist James Sanborn, its 1800 characters
contain encrypted messages, of which three have been solved. There is still a fourth section at the bottom consisting of 97 or 98 characters which
4 parts to the cryptic message,
parts 1 and 2 reads:
Between subtle shading and the absence of light lies the nuance of iqlusion.
It was totally invisible Hows that possible? They used the Earths magnetic field X
The information was gathered and transmitted undergruund to an unknown location X
Does Langley know about this? They should Its buried out there somewhere X
Who knows the exact location? Only WW This was his last message X
Thirty eight degrees fifty seven minutes six point five seconds north
Seventy seven degrees eight minutes forty four seconds west ID by rows
reading the solved parts my first impression...straight away...part 3....sounded like something i read before.
and its not in context with the first two parts.
im a fanatic about ancient egypt and read everything to do with the ancients
part three of the Kryptos sculpture, sounds to me, like an excerpt from Howard Carters diary of 1922.
Howard Carter, known largley for "finding" tutankhamuns tomb....in the diary is a famous part of him leaning through a small hole with a candle,
seeing gold everywhere
Howard Carters Diary - november 1, 4, 5
Part 3 of kryptos reads:
Slowly desparatly slowly the remains of passage debris that encumbered the lower part of the doorway was removed with trembling hands i made a
tiny breach in the upper lefthand corner and then widening the hole a little i inserted the candle and peered in the hot air escaping from the chamber
caused the flame to flicker but presently details of the room within emerged from the mist X
Can you see anythingq
Part 4 is apparently unsolved - making it even more interesting.
so i reserached it and found someone who cracked it....he shows his working and what he found fits perfectly with my first impression:
part 4 - ."Out of Darknss (darkness misspelled) A Gold King Tut"
so personally im running with it....the kryptos to me, talks about magnetic fields used by "langley". and that they know the location
so if "langley" is the old name for mclean, the cia hq.- as well as the sculpture being at the cia.... ....then deciphering the kryptos sculpture
tells us that....the cia found tuts tomb using the earths magnetic field...in the 1920s......it could make sense considering the amount of gold
but really...this means carter knew before he arrived...that means he had a different set of orders than we percive...less - find, gather and
know....and more - go get it quick!!
why would they put up a cryptic messages that lets us know that Carter was a fake and....this need to marinate in my brain for a bit lol
whats your thoughts?
peace and respect
