APEX Theory Updated

Greetings again.

It’s been some time since my last post.  I’ve been quite busy just living my life, enjoying my family, and working for “the man”.  There hasn’t been much time for Kryptos, but I have managed to make a few good observations and potentially move the ball forward a bit.

To see the next step in APEX Theory, please just visit my site.  Come back here and tell me what you think.  Are you ready to help the cause?

    Mr. Thompson: I greatly enjoyed reading your APEX post and found it (up to some mathematical formulas) understandable, and I think, closest I’ve read up to date towards a solution. Condsidering that K4 was meant to be easily de-coded in the field, a plain-text (scrambled) reading used with a commonly available book (1:Corinthians 13:12?), using your acronym theory seems plausible. I know others scoff at my “scrambled text” ideas, but I have uncovered: ” “LOOK SLOWLY PAST GMT IN BROK_N WRITTEN CIA CIPHER TO FIND CHADS AND RUDYS RAY GUN CRYPTOGRAPH WHAT?” ;>) and, “LOOK SLOWLY PAST ZULU TO FIND WHAT PRIVATE OMNISCIENT” ;>). Carter’s references are from the New Testament and 1:Corinthians 13:12 is about the unseen. Check it out! And thanks for the thoughts!

    You make the following assertion: “K4 was meant to be easily de-coded in the field”. Some people would say that my path violates the “easily decoded” premise, because there are a significant number of textual manipulations involved.

    I know that there have been some statements by the creators to the effect that it could be solved with pen and paper and that the keys are transmitted (somehow) with the puzzle so that an operative could solve it. The problem is that you have assumed the word EASILY. That premise makes a huge difference, and I’m not sure whether you are right to assume it. I don’t think that you’ll find any quotes (or other information) that supports the notion that this is necessarily easy for the field agent.

    What do you mean that “Carter’s references are from the New Testament”?

    I didn’t mean to minimize any importance your discovery has made by the use of the word “easily”. When you spoke of references to a particular book, and suggesting that it be on Carter’s excavation, or on the period of King Tut I was commenting on Carter’s own comments, of reverence and amazement, which are in his notes: he quoted from Scripture; not unlike Oppenheimer who quoted from the Bhagavad Gita (Arjuna, as I recall).

    **“ As the researcher, you know what it is you have done, and why, but what is obvious to you may not be obvious to the reader. Therefore you need to take the reader through the research process with you, giving reasons for your choices and decisions and guiding them to the study conclusions. ”**
    Randy, in this field, no one has done this^ better than you 🙂
    I am very impressed with your work, but definitely need to add :
    It will be a sad sad day for me when K4
    is solved.
    Yours sincerely, Lyn
