Starting on January 4, 2012, a web puzzle first appeared
on the Internet indicating it wanted to find highly
intelligent individuals for their own very secretive
purposes. While never AS OF YET publicly solved,
a few anonymous individuals have stated they have
been recruited and know the secrets left behind.
Here on ATS we shall discuss WHO IS Cicada 3301
and WHAT is their purpose. I have a few links
on the background of Cicada 3301 here:
More information on Cicada 3301:
ORIGINAL MESSAGE QUOTE:
Hello. We are looking for highly intelligent individuals.
To find them, we have devised a test. There is a message
hidden in the image. Find it, and it will lead you on the
road to finding us. We look forward to meeting the few
who will make it all the way through. Good luck.

Fast Company Webzine Article on 3301:
The name Cicada in itself holds ONE key to me:
CIC = Combat Information Centre (US Navy Acronym)
ADA = A Military Programming Language
sort of like PASCAL or Oberon
with multiple government users.
3301 is ALSO an ERROR CODE for MANY software products
that seem to all reference nearly the same thing as
one of the following:
a) 3301 Lotus Notes - Full Full Text memory allocation error
b) Error ID 3301 — Data Protection Manager
c) Erro 3301: Sybase Database Error: has various sub-errors
d) SQL Error 3301 is associated with transaction log files of SQL Server database.
e) DRM Error 3301 = This error is returned when an authenticate call is made
with invalid credentials (i.e. bad username or password).
Notice that all the error codes have
to do with databases and data protection?
The 3301 numerals also reference the
Ternary base-3 numeral system which
has a specific social connotation which
I immediately get but won't reveal here!
Many have speculated that it is a recruitment
tool for the NSA, CIA, MI6, or a cyber
If you research the logos, words and other information
using SOCIAL CONTEXT CONNOTATIONS I found these links:
“The Cicada technology addresses real capability gaps,
not only in federal civil agencies but also across the
Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.”
Dr. Thomas A. Cellucci, Chief Commercialization Office U.S. Department of Homeland Security (Ret.)
The Cicada technology addresses real capability gaps,
not only in federal ... dedicated management processor
to pervasively monitor and analyze trigger data.

All the social contexts are related to links
within or ASSOCIATED with DATA STORAGE AND
IT SECURITY DURING DATA TRANSMISSION!
That means a few things:
a) The people doing this are SMART!
b) The context of using in later stages
a personality test indicates recruitment
for a COMMON SOCIAL linkage. All applicants
must have nearly the same social beliefs or
c) Unfortunately for THEM! some of
the questions were lifted right from MMPI2
(Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory)
So I now know that at least ONE person behind
this has high-level Psychology/Psychiatry training.
d) Its a possible recruitment tool
for a U.S. or international
intelligence agency. CIA/NSA/DIA/MI6, etc
e) It's a recruitment tool for a bunch of
programmers who are working on breathroughs
recently found within a Grand Challenge Computing
Project see link:
f) It was concosted by a business entity who is interested in
information security and data storage technology and systems.
g) It was concocted by Aliens who want only CERTAIN
people to get through the clues for whatever end-purpose
is required by said aliens!
h) Just to muddy the waters I'll give you
this clue which is probably unrelated.....
