Hello from SPAIN

+  Jim Gillogly, a Southern California computer scientist, who resolved k1, k2, and k3 said “There were no written rules in this contest”, and adding: “As far as I’m concerned a crack is where you find it. The choice of tool isn’t the important part, but rather the decisions about how to use the tools.”

+ Now trying to check my theory. I’ve been to the web site of Kryptos sculptor Mr Seaborn:
http://kryptosclue.com/clue/clue.html

+ THe first thing I did. I wrote “peopletocr” according to my solution “clean” (I copied a fragment of a speech of Ronald Reagan in front of Berlin Wall)

 I did not get a positive response.

…..but in the kryptos text K4 may be some cryptographic mistake voluntary or involuntary (or the web site is broken).

+ I continue looking to verify this solution.

Maybe you can find out the cipher or code used.

REMEMBER

I suggest that K4 solution is based in the place of BERLIN:

 “PEOPLE TO CREATE A SAFER  FREER WORLD AND SURELY THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE THAN BERLIN THE MEETING PLACE  OF EAST AND WEST”

(97 characters, NO MORE, NO LESS)

SO, if K 3 has a question: ” …… can you see anythyngq?“. (The account of Howard Carter, the renowned Egyptologist, as he opened King Tut’s tomb.)

THEN … K 4 has an answer “ People to create a safer, freer world ……..” (a fragment of a speech of Ronald Reagan in front of Berlin Wall)

—Ronald Reagan, address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987.

+ iF Letters  64-69  “NYPVTT”  in  K 4 encode the text “BERLIN” then……,

K4 KRYPTOS SOLVED?

Goodbye.

KRIPTOS

+ “Kryptos,” the sculpture nestled in a courtyard of the CIA Virginia headquarters since 1990, is a work of art with a secret code embedded in the letters that are punched into its four panels of curving copper — the name, in Greek, means “hidden” —.  The broad principles it provided for the $250,000 commission included the notion that it should “engender feelings of well-being, hope.”

The code breakers have had some success. Three of the 4 puzzles, 768 characters long, were solved by 1999, revealing passages — one lyrical, one obscure and one taken from history. But the fourth message (K4) of “Kryptos” has resisted the best efforts of brains and computres.

THE K4 SOLUTION IS……

1rst+ IF  It will be the first clue Sanborn has revealed in four years, after he corrected a typo in his sculpture in 2006 to keep crypto detectives from being derailed in their search for solutions.

Sanborn wouldn’t disclose the clue to Threat Level but said only cryptically that it will “GLOBALIZE” the sculpture. Asked if this meant it would take the sculpture off the CIA grounds and out of the United States, he conceded it would. “I personally think it’s a significant clue,” he said. “I’m throwing it out there. It just makes that many fewer characters people have to figure out.”

2+  If Mr. Sanborn  has provided To the New York Times with the answers to six letters in the sculpture’s final passage:  The characters that are the 64th through 69th in the final series on the sculpture read NYPVTT. When deciphered, they read BERLIN.MORE: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/11/20/us/code.html?ref=us&_r=1&

So, Seaborn sculpted a small fragment of one of the most important speeches of Ronald Reagan (and “GLOBALIZE” the sculpture) :

He said:
“Today, thus, represents a moment of hope …….PEOPLE TO CREATE A SAFER, FREER WORLD AND SURELY THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE THAN BERLIN THE MEETING PLACE OF EAST AND WEST, to make a start.”

SO, if K 3 has a question: ” ……  can you see anythyngq?“. (The account of Howard Carter, the renowned Egyptologist, as he opened King Tut’s tomb.)

THEN … K 4 has an answer  ”  People to create a safer, freer world ……..” (a fragment of a speech  of Ronald reagan in front of Berlin Wall)

K 1 abd K 2 are original texts  …… but K3  and K4 are passages copied. And so the author gets a text that represents the original motive of artistic work, the notion that it should “engender feelings of well-being, hope.”

NOTE: Solution based on the place where it positioned the word “Berlin”. I do not know the encryption system, only the final text.

Bye from Spain.

Barcelona October 2, 2013.

Hello from Spain:

- In my humble opinion based on Edgar Allan Poe´s short story “the gold bug”,  first we must look for the signature where habitually someone puts the signature as the caracther of William Legrand did whith the note of captain Kidd.

- Look the last word of the last line of the 2nd note:

“XORLX” a letter repeats itself; and remember “Mccormick”, a letter repeats itself too.

If “X”= variations of the letter “C” (like this MC, C and CK) something usually in Shorthand systems.
if “O”=”O”

if “R”=”R”
if “L”=M, he uses the code Cesar b or +1

if we add the vowel (i) as transcript shorthand solution.

Then “XORLX” is possibly “MCCORM(i)CK”.

+ If we apply this knowledge to the last line of the second note this it must mean:
“O-W-m-4 H8L XORLX” is “OWN-for I AM Mccormick”.

“O-W”= OW
“-m” = N, he uses the code cesar +1
-4= four= for (phonetic solution) and the hyphen join the letters and words.
“H”= I, he uses the code cesar +1.
8= eit (phonetic)= ei (phonetic a)= A.
“L”= M, he uses the code cesar +1.

… and the hyphen join the letters in a word.
etc… the 2nd note seems a testament or last will.

If we apply this knowledge to the last line of the 1st note this it must mean:

“(i 94 WLD´S n CBE)….(TRFXL)” is possibly  means ( i 1994 would is and had been……terrifying came):

+ “i”= i.
+ 94= date 1994.
+ “WLD´S”= would is (shorthand)
+“n”= and (shorthand).
+ C=D, he uses the code cesar +1,by shorthand and verb contraction can be WOULD, HAD and DO ( verb to do).
+ “BE”= B(e)E= been (phonetic solution)
+ “TRF”= Terrify or terrifying (shorthand).
+“XL”= Come or Came, look the Codename “XORLX” explanation.etc.

- The 1st note seems as he remember his life because from August 1993 until July 1994 he was in prison and this was terrifying for him.

Finally, you can accept that the group of letters “WLD” means “would” and the letter “D” has different form: Not “D” in “O-W-m-4″ or “XORLX”…the outine is incomplete or stand out in the low part, see “D” in 4 line, 4 letter, of 2nd note or 6 line,
5 letter, of 1st note.

The 2 notes must be encrypted and shorted

- This is a STENOGRAPHIC problem with come measures of deception (code Caesar B, signs, space between words …)

Now no one reads the works of Poe?.

Bye from Spain.
