If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

puzzle in the "liber al vel legis" (1904) - new solution?
« on: July 09, 2015, 04:29:13 pm »
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008303142425

do you know the puzzle and have seen a solution similar to the one on the facebook profile above before?

i think the most important step is the "double translation". the puzzle string is split into numbers and letters, and then converted into letters only - which brings up the problem of how to treat the number 24 (as either the letter X or the letters B and D).

the whole thing is extremly short and ends with 13 final resulting numbers. the total sum of these is 2643 (26 x 43 =1118, which could be regarded as a kind of self-affirmation of the solution).

what do you think about this?

this is the "puzzle" i'm talking about of course: 4638ABK24ALGMOR3YX2489RPSTOVAL

for those who don't have or don't want facebook, this is the entire very short solution that can be found on the profile:



the resulting numbers are then inserted in simple annulus calculations:

That's an interesting solution, but what does it mean? I suspect the real solution to this isn't a set of numbers but some meaning or truth about the universe.

i guess that's right, these calculations are just an intermediate step. check out what he does on his other profile, still can't believe my eyes when i look at that:

well, again, the basic claim of the solution for the puzzle is that it is logically necessary, not arbitrary and true the same way 2 + 2 = 4 is true.

that is:

4638ABK24ALGMOR3YX2489RPSTOVAL = http://i.imgur.com/ZLjstOM.jpg

instead of

4638ABK24ALGMOR3YX2489RPSTOVAL + X = http://i.imgur.com/ZLjstOM.jpg

what do you think about that?

And you did not quote in a reply to a moderator message telling you to quote as the rules you agreed to follow require. It is obvious to me that you do not take the rules of this forum seriously. Should you fail to quote again, you will be banned for at least one week.

let me throw this find in:

this is one of the "ring" calculations on that profile that follow the solution of the puzzle:

http://i.imgur.com/NqBa4L7.jpg

2029.4688542190063

and that's robyn rihanna fenty's name and birthdate:

her birthdate: 202 1988 (202 + 1988 = 2190)
her name: 209 (1254)

i've uploaded a graphic to make this more clearly visible:

the ring calculation in question, plus the 2 (!) persons which it allegedly signifies (rihanna, "pp").
