Archaeologists Discover Site Where Desperate Jesus Christ Turned Tricks

NEWS • Religion • Sex • Unsponsored •News • ISSUE 49•48 • Nov 26, 2013Archaeologists say evidence of Christ’s hooking can be found all over this site in Jerusalem.JERUSALEM—In a stunning discovery that archaeologists hope might shed light on the little-known years between Jesus Christ’s childhood and his ministry, the Israel Antiquities Authority uncovered Monday what they believe to be the site where, in the years before he began his itinerant preaching, a desperate, cash-strapped Christ briefly turned tricks for money.Excavators working in the Beit Hanina neighborhood of Jerusalem unveiled fragments of several earthenware vessels, an 18-seat public latrine hewn from stone and terra cotta piping dating to Jesus’ era, along with a curbed Roman road that served as a main artery of ancient Judea, where the fledgling, hard-up prophet is believed to have cruised for johns passing by on donkeys, wagons, and chariots.“It’s an incredible find, and one that confirms many of our long-held theories about Christ’s so-called lost years,” said the dig’s head archaeologist, Aviram Oshri, who went on to note that while Christ’s hooking is not referenced in the New Testament, suggestions that he resorted to the flesh trade abound in historical records of the period. “This intersection is an exact match for the area described in ancient texts, where Jesus is said to have flagged down lonely men traveling from Yafa and offered his wares in public commodes.”“This would have been before Christ had many followers, of course,” Oshri added. “Some of his earliest followers were clients, actually.”The young Christ, like many adrift Hebrew males, is believed to have turned to sex work around 19 A.D. as a coping mechanism during a bout of homelessness. Though implicitly prohibited by Jewish law, prostitution was prevalent in ancient Judea, with sex workers trading their services for cloth, fowl, wine, and small coins, a transaction that Christ is believed to have executed hundreds of times during a short period of time in his 20s.According to historians, intercrural sex—a type of non-penetrative sex in which the male inserts his lubricated penis between his partner’s thighs—was en vogue during Christ’s day, and it is the form most of his trysts were believed to have taken. Fellatio was also preferred whenever possible, to stave off disease and wear.“We’ve made key finds in this area since the second temple period, but never this early, which is why finding the area where a luckless vagrant Jesus probably trolled for sex is such a remarkable discovery,” Osrhi said, adding that Christ’s “Hidden Years”—the period from his appearance at the temple as a 12-year-old boy and his subsequent reappearance as a 30-year-old spiritual leader at his baptism—have long been shrouded in mystery due to lack of archaeological evidence substantiating the rumors of a Judean red light district. “Unraveling the mystery of Christ’s formative years is exhilarating work that sheds light on him not just as a prophet, but as a person. A very confused person.”“And if some of the lewd messages scrawled on the walls of this public commode are to be believed, a quite popular person as well,” Osrhi added.PreviousNext””>

HomeAboutContactABOUTTEAM3301GCHQPCTFCONTACTSUBSCRIBE TO RSS//3301On January 5th 2012, an image was uploaded to various image boards, possibly originating at the infamous /b/ board at 4chan. When I came across it, I didn’t think much of it at first, but still decided to look into it just in case it turned out to be interesting. I have always had a hard time resisting a challenge. This is the image that was posted:My first thought was that it used steganography to hide a message, and since it was a JPEG image I tried using stegdetect by Niels Provos in case one of the detectable schemes was used. Since stegdetect have not been updated in almost 7 years, I didn’t really get my hopes up that high though, but it is always worth a try. 😉 The result can be seen below:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ stegdetect 3301.jpg 3301.jpg : appended(61) It did not detect any of the common steganographic schemes, but notified me of 61 appended bytes of ASCII text. Since my next move would have been to use “strings”, I would have discovered this anyway, but stegdetect was kind enough to tell me directly instead. 🙂 So, let’s see what we have:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ tail -61c 3301.jpg TIBERIVS CLAVDIVS CAESAR says “lxxt>33m2mqkyv2gsq3q=w]O2ntk” This is quite obviously a shift cipher of some sort (also known as a Caesar cipher), with “lxxt>33″ being the ciphered version of “http://”. A shift cipher replaces each letter in the plaintext with a letter (or in this case, arbitrary ASCII character) with a letter a certain number of positions down the alphabet. So, let’s compare the ASCII values for the cipher text with the ASCII value of the supposed plaintext to see what the shift value is:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ perl -e ‘print ord(“h”)-ord(“l”),chr(10)’ -4 In this particular case, this might have been a bit overkill, since we could just as well have manually counted the distance between h and l in the alphabet. 😉 It is probably not a coincidence that Claudius happens to be the 4th Emperor of the Roman Empire, and the shift value happens to be 4, either. To decipher this, a perl oneliner is enough:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ echo “lxxt>33m2mqkyv2gsq3q=w]O2ntk” | perl -pne ‘chomp;s{(.)}{chr(ord($1)-4)}sgex;$_.=chr(10)’ http://i.imgur.com/m9sYK.jpg The image at the URL above can be seen below:It seems like the challenge is a bit harder than a caesar cipher after all. Note that the message contains the words “out” and “guess” though, which could be a hint that we are actually supposed to use the old OutGuess tool to extract the hidden message. Incidentally, OutGuess is also developed by Niels Provos and is available for download from the same site as stegdetect (http://www.outguess.org/). Unfortunately, it seems like stegdetect is only able to detect when the older OutGuess 0.13b has been used and not OutGuess 0.2 (from 2001!). :DUsing outguess 0.2 with the -r option immediately reveals the hidden message in the original image:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ outguess -r 3301.jpg 3301.txt Reading 3301.jpg…. Extracting usable bits: 29049 bits Steg retrieve: seed: 228, len: 535The hidden message can be found here.Now things are actually getting interesting. Although the challenge have not been required any particularly advanced skills yet, someone has obviously been putting some work into it. The hidden message says that we should go to the following URL: http://www.reddit.com/r/a2e7j6ic78h0j/The hidden message also includes a so called book code, consisting of a number of lines with two digits separated by a colon on each. The book and more information should be found at the URL above. Book ciphers are ciphers that use a book or a text of some sort as the key to encode a secret message. Traditionally, they worked by replacing words in the plaintext with the locations of words from a book, but in this case it seems more likely that the two digits separated by a colon in the code refers to a line and column number.When visiting the Reddit page, we can make a number of observations. Most notably, there are a number of posts by the pseudonym CageThrottleUs that seem to consist of encoded text, which we can assume to be the book. It looks like an ordinary Caesar cipher may have been used, but on a closer look no shift value results in readable text. It seems most likely that a key of some sort is required to decode the text.Looking closer on the page, we can see that the title is “a2e7j6ic78h0j7eiejd0120″. The URL itself is a truncated version of this. To the right, below the “subscribe” button, the title text is repeated and “Verify: 7A35090F” is written underneath. We can also see pictures of some mayan numbers on the top of the page. Mayan numbers are quite logical, at least from 0-19. A dot equals one, and a vertical line equals five. Two lines thus equals ten, one line with two dots equals seven (5 + 2) and so on. There is also a symbol resembling a rugby ball that equals zero. :)The number sequence that is written using mayan numbers is as follows:10 2 14 7 19 6 18 12 7 8 17 0 19Comparing this with the a2e7j6ic78h0j7eiejd0120 in the title, we can see that numbers below 10 in the sequence above is also found in this string, at the same positions. Also note that instead of 10 we have “a”, instead of 14 we have “e”, and so on up to “j” being 19. Since the title of the page contains 23 characters and there were only 13 mayan numbers is is quite likely that we are supposed to continue converting characters from the title to numbers. This gives us:10 2 14 7 19 6 18 12 7 8 17 0 19 7 14 18 14 19 13 0 1 2 0This could very well be the key required to decode the text. Regarding the “Verify: 7A35090F”, it may refer to any number of things. A PGP key ID is, however, a good assumption since it consists of a 32 bit value normally encoded as eight hex characters and since PGP keys can be used to verify the signature, and thus the authenticity, of messages signed with a PGP key. This could be quite handy, in case the challenge goes on and in case people decide to drop false leads to the people working on it. So, let’s try to import the public key with the ID in question from one of the common PGP key servers:je@isis:~$ gpg –recv-keys 7A35090F gpg: requesting key 7A35090F from hkp server keys.gnupg.net gpg: key 7A35090F: public key “Cicada 3301 (845145127)” imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)The comment for the key mentions 3301, which was used as the signature in the original image. It also includes the word “cicada” and the number 845145127, which may turn out to be significant at a later stage. Note, for instance, that cicadas emerge from their hideouts under earth every 13 or 17 years depending on which kind. By emerging every N:th year, where N happens to be a prime number, cicadas actually minimize the possibility of synchronizing with the life cycles of birds and other animals that prey on them. Also note that 3301 is a prime, and that 845145127 has 3301, 509 and 503 as its prime factors.je@isis:~$ factor 3301 3301: 3301 je@isis:~$ factor 845145127 845145127: 503 509 3301When taking a closer look at the lines of encoded text posted to the reddit page, we also find two images. One named Welcome and the other one Problems?. By using OutGuess again, we find another couple of hidden messages:je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ outguess -r welcome.jpg welcome.txt Reading welcome.jpg….

Primary key fingerprint: 6D85 4CD7 9333 22A6 01C3 286D 181F 01E5 7A35 090FThe messages verifies both our assumptions, since they are indeed signed using the key ID 7A35090F and since the second one specifically says that the key “has always been right in front of your eyes”. In other words, it is likely to consist of the numbers we discovered being encoded as characters in the title of the page. The first message also specifically states that all messages from now on will be signed using the PGP key with ID 7A35090F.All that remains now is to figure out which encoding scheme has been used so that we can apply the key to the text. Since a shift cipher was used in the original image (although it was used as a decoy), perhaps the numbers are different shift values. In other words, for each line of text, shift/rotate the first letter ten steps in the alphabet, rotate the second letter two steps, the third letter 14 steps, and so on, to get the plaintext. Implementing this in C results in the following:je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ cat decipher.c #include #include int main(void) { unsigned char key[] = { 10, 2, 14, 7, 19, 6, 18, 12, 7, 8, 17, 0, 19, 7, 14, 18, 14, 19, 13, 0, 1, 2, 0 }; int c, i = 0; while ((c = getchar()) != EOF) { if (isalpha(c)) { int base, off; if (isupper(c)) base = ‘A’; else base = ‘a’; off = c – base – key[i++ % sizeof(key)]; if (off < 0) off += 26; c = base + off; } else if (c == '\n') i = 0; putchar(c); } return 0; } je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ gcc -o decipher decipher.c -O -Wall -ansi -pedantic je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ head -3 reddit.txt Ukbn Txltbz nal hh Uoxelmgox wdvg Akw; hvu ogl rsm ar sbv ix jwz mjotukj; mul nimo vaa prrf Qwkkb aak kau ww Ukpsf, ogq Kzpox vvl luf yh Qsrjfa, hvu Ktp hzs lbn ph Kipsy; ttv Sdmehpfjsf tad igr je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ ./decipher < reddit.txt | head -3 King Arthur was at Caerlleon upon Usk; and one day he sat in his chamber; and with him were Owain the son of Urien, and Kynon the son of Clydno, and Kai the son of Kyner; and Gwenhwyvar and her The file "reddit.txt" consists of the lines posted to the reddit page so far, in the order that they have been posted. Note that this is not in the exact order that they are shown on the reddit page. As you can see, our assumption was correct and we can now decipher every line of text that has been posted, and try to apply the book code that we got in the message hidden in the original image.Using a small bash script, we can apply the book code to the text from reddit to retreive yet another hidden message:je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ ./decipher reddit-deciphered.txt je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ cat reddit-decode.sh #!/bin/bash while read line; do row=`echo $line | cut -d: -f1` col=`echo $line | cut -d: -f2` head -n$row reddit-deciphered.txt | tail -n1 | head -${col}c | tail -1c done < bookcode.txt echo je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ ./reddit-decode.sh Call us at us tele phone oumBer two one four thsee nine oi nine si oh ihhtAlthough we can easily see which phone number is being refered to, it's obvious that the output is a bit garbled. For the sake of completeness, let's look into what the cause might be. The first letter that is garbled is the "n" in number that has been turned into an "o", then the "r" in three which have been turned into an "s" and so on. The upper case "B" may have been intended though, although it seems a bit off. There is actually a lower case "b" on the same line that is used for encoding the upper case "B", but the upper case one comes first.When looking at the line corresponding to the "n" turning into an "o" (line 26, column 65), we can see that there is actually an "n" right before the "o" at column 65 (from the name "Kynon"). Looking further down, at the line corresponding to the "r" turning into an "s" (line 48, column 43), we can see that the expected "r" is right before "s" on this line as well (from the word "daggers").Another thing in common for these particular lines of text is that they include a period somewhere before the character that has been decoded incorrectly. If we assume that periods, which end sentences, should count as two characters instead of one when applying the book code we get this, which looks a bit neater:je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ perl -i -pne 's/\./. /g' reddit-deciphered.txt je@isis:~/3301/stage_2$ ./reddit-decode.sh Call us at us tele phone numBer two one four three nine oh nine six oh eightSo, to continue the challenge we need to call the (214) 390-9608, a Texas based phone number. Whoever is behind this challenge, they have obviously put some effort into it. :)When calling the number, one is (or rather, was, the number has now been deactivated) greeted by the following message:"Very good. You have done well. There are three prime numbers associated with the original final.jpg image. 3301 is one of them. You will have to find the other two. Multiply all three of these numbers together and add a .com to find the next step. Good luck. Goodbye."When examining the PGP key, we already noted that it included the number 845145127 in the description, and that this is the product of 3301, 503 and 509. When looking at the metadata for the original image, we also note this:je@isis:~/3301/stage_1$ exiftool 3301.jpg | grep 50[39] Image Width : 509 Image Height : 503 Image Size : 509x503Seems like we've solved this stage as well, now let's head to http://845145127.com/ to find the next part of the challenge. 🙂 When I first arrived at the http://845145127.com/ site, it just displayed an image of a cicada and a countdown. Using OutGuess again, the following signed message could be extracted from the cicada image:—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—– Hash: SHA1 You have done well to come this far. Patience is a virtue.

Also, the image of the cicada now contained another signed text containing the same GPS coordinates as on the web page, except for two that were only on the webpage (37.577070, 126.813122 and 36.0665472222222, -94.1726416666667):—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—– Hash: SHA1 52.216802, 21.018334 48.85057059876962, 2.406892329454422 48.85030144151387,2.407538741827011 47.664196, -122.313301 47.637520, -122.346277 47.622993, -122.312576 37.5196666666667, 126.995 33.966808, -117.650488 29.909098706850486 -89.99312818050384 25.684702, -80.441289 21.584069, -158.104211 – -33.90281, 151.18421 3301 —–BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE—– Version: GnuPG v1.4.11 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJPChn7AAoJEBgfAeV6NQkPZxMP/05D9TkSpwRaBXPqYthuyqxx uo+ZDyr/yVIlAdurTBiWb3aGxKJjtWg/vlcHcatK0TGL2qaHwB/FFZQAaqOyU7Zf DXdpWr8PWoWhpWNYUK8IrOaYu1SmWlJnkTdUSzGrX0lbwjwMmJJoPNS7CJuO6MaA 2GIwpv2G7lYqnH3xeX3kzGlPMsVb/wucKRjobsbdbreh1SNuQuRnhfe4s+oHTTqs XjtGL/VhBI0DUAdfLqW7z4C+Gvbx6okC8x5Sj2N2UTJOiyMYXz5+QyHoA6fo9g5V 6zodNpx/RvxuZP2Ssc9TqERgTo5FjRBpON1vjDalHgg0H2Fus2LK3gh+NZfj1i5b Oqa4Cqd9epI2pe+glXn86j9crS+2BEAr1cguqAFepvI9sdFEornDja4VXwDtUdM8 9hMVkU5NiTUYfvxZbL6W7rHIF7wxjGUwpe1ViuixG+cKNfv0enrt60PrtDByBOWI 9LLIUE0cB5HDT1xrczZ/55CtuM3Zf07/l0nLFdmgR0oa8KUA9gWcPs6S1EpBa185 VcyOTqbpIPiT8neiJEkXarbJeFk15m1P73Fr8XZxdj7EHK0aOwGYcc8e4PmW/dSh gcrSNXiePCbcRVRD2n9L47C0LkNyRpoBkmjvtpcRyp5ISe+0xcx/QI+gc1lkSijC 89qV+ymCHae1RiSDxVbd =ZJ37 —–END PGP SIGNATURE—–Using Google Maps (maps.google.com) I could search for each of these locations, and in most cases even get a street view. The locations were spread out around the world without any obvious connection (USA, Poland, France, South Korea and Australia), except for perhaps each of them being home to some talented hackers. At this point I thought it would be the end of the game for me, since I am far away from all of these locations.I was still very curious on how the challenge would continue though, and found that there are groups of people working on this from all over the world. One of these groups had set up an IRC channel at n0v4.com, and managed to get people to check out the locations at the specified GPS coordinates. What they found was notes attached to lightpoles, with the cicada image and a QR code. When scanning the QR code, they got image URLs with a black and white image of a cicada and the text "everywhere" and "3301". Each image also contained a hidden signed message. Even though there were 14 locations, only two different messages were used though.One of them had with the following text at the top of the message (full message here):In twenty-nine volumes, knowledge was once contained. How many lines of the code remained when the Mabinogion paused? Go that far in from the beginning and find my first name.The other one had this text (full message here here):A poem of fading death, named for a king Meant to be read only once and vanish Alas, it could not remain unseen.They both also included a 22 line book code. Both of them included the text "the product of the first two primes" at line 3 and 15, and one of them also included the text "the first prime" at line 8. This probably means that the characters on these positions should be replaced with the numbers described. Note that the definition of a prime number is a natural number greater than 1, with no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. This means that the first two prime numbers are two and three.The three lines of text in each message seemed likely to be a hint to which book/text to use as the key for the included book code. By googling for some keywords in the second message (poem fading death read only once vanish), the Wikipedia entry for a 300-line poem by William Gibson is among the first hits. The poem is called Agrippa (a book of the dead) and according to Wikipedia "Its principal notoriety arose from the fact that the poem, stored on a 3.5" floppy disk, was programmed to erase itself after a single use; similarly, the pages of the artist's book were treated with photosensitive chemicals, effecting the gradual fading of the words and images from the book's first exposure to light.". This fits the description perfectly.When googling for william gibson agrippa, the first hit ishttp://www.williamgibsonbooks.com/source/agrippa.asp. Taking this text, including line breaks, as the key for the book code results in the following:je@isis:~/3301/stage_3$ cat agrippa-decode.sh #!/bin/bash while read line; do if [ "$line" = "the product of the first two primes" ]; then echo -n 6 else row=`echo $line | cut -d: -f1` col=`echo $line | cut -d: -f2` head -n$row agrippa.txt | tail -n1 | head -${col}c | tail -1c fi done 3301.html je@isis:~/3301$ perl -pne ‘s/[^\s]//g;s/\t/0/g;s/ /1/g;s{([01]{8})}{chr(oct(“0b$1)”))}sgex’ < 3301.html —–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—– Hash: SHA1 162667212858 414974253863 598852142735 876873892385 935691396441 316744223127 427566844663 644169769482 889296759263 963846244281 —–BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE—– Version: GnuPG v1.4.11 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJPDRkvAAoJEBgfAeV6NQkPVuMP/3ZyAgwsko/B2T9Ew1yqAKVy K9//wIWCRvMyZ4k79ApqvOJAlezgHTsAM8XG/I71bAG+2wMOXNJfTj/SFONEEbS5 BOp9UP7LHn1j3NKoESrDzsKd+u3oHoNnhs628aLrc8uDqbn/6DNUnObu5Tn3unu0 zZ3NjSs/A5QQX8O56RsK81eSJ2fifbr4NYfHBeUTeVe17nsr48WQI7qc9UVWlPsM 91FWsvhX+WohX8DyFWJmtz0lLvmh3jN+oE8WFPTVbcVCM+eiDt0TqkUNlmq/fxbd X2Sbs8zMxDXNQWrw58TcSC6oLfXSXZnjh8uTMwrQ0tNdRXHDndgPiurXz62XjVjf 4AhSXBoXF9CHTOyGGEqvfNvFMKyz968iMZDXDNBrM8pkxx1xBHhAnoEznVpeMhII +IfBTnV8x9lSNgFhmham5eEZlWvqRidqes8EAriqGA6uZokCq7X1IeMHo52ACWmP 2bJsCV5wZDc52c3JnwKe+cAcbsA4OWCNEH29lAsgFw5079BP8lkpY3AH2+8kqs0X QvqsaMuUq5ZHEaZMgdD0VKYlRrKdhOiDjtJVxoXk1b7YBOV8dZZBXJbEIbTvaof4 yhgUObovx/VFGmsenp+j3nBCxgEO22SgNW3B3pN0yuIMCqccWEZ1nME/QOwLa85n HOmElIXvK13Q9m545RtP =Q1Fy —–END PGP SIGNATURE—–The message simply contains ten different 12 digit numbers. As it turns out, each of these correspond to image URLs such as: http://75.119.203.244/NUMBER.jpgEach of these images contains a hidden message that can be extracted with outguess, and it turns out that it's the same messages that could be extracted from the images found through QR codes on notes at the GPS-coordinates mentioned earlier. Turns out we didn't have to be at one of those locations after all. :)Regarding the remaining code, it is very likely to refer to the same .onion site as before. Just to be sure, and not to leave out any piece of the puzzle, it would be nice to solve that one too though.My thoughts so far are these:"In twenty-nine volumes, knowledge was once contained" may refer to the 11th edition of Encyclopedia Britannica, which consisted of exactly 29 volumes and that is now in the public domain and available for download since it was released back in 1910-1911.Regarding "How many lines of the code remained when the Mabinogion paused?", note that the text posted to the reddit page is from "The Lady of the Fountain", which is the first out of eleven stories from medieval Welsh manuscripts in the collection called the Mabinogion. Also note that there was a pause for about 24 hours after the 65:th encoded line of text was posted to the reddit page. After that, new encoded lines have been posted about every 6th or 7th hour.Assuming the code will continue until "The Lady of the Fountain" is finished, we will need to figure out the total number of lines in that story. To do that, we need to find the text that 3301 uses as their source, so that line breaks are placed on the same positions. After a bit of searching around it turns out that the source that 3301 uses is from Project Gutenberg (here). Blank lines are discarded, and lines with only one word on them are being appended to the preceding line. Applying those rules to the entire text of "The Lady of the Fountain" results in a total of 833 lines. Thus, the number of lines of code that remained when the Mabinogion paused is 833 – 65 = 768 (which also happens to be 512+256, but I guess that may be a mere coincidence after all).Finally we have "Go that far in from the beginning and find my first name", which could mean a number of things. My guess is that we should go 768 words, sentences, word definitions, characters or pages into the 11th edition of Encyclopedia Britannica. Question is where we are supposed to go from there, since it ends with "and find my first name". By this, I assume we should only find a certain name at this particular position, and then from this name find the actual text to use as the key for the book code.I also noticed that the code for this part only use 27 lines, with columns ranging from 1-66 and many columns being above 30-40. This rules out most poems, that usually don't have long lines. It could very well be a text straight from the Encyclopedia Britannica, however. Due to the large number of possibilities I have not looked into it much further than this, and so far I don't think anyone have come up with the solution for this particular puzzle. So, anyone up for it? :)1.39k344

The same can be done with almost any file; manipulating text in a shell is one of the most fun and easy ways to do so.Now I will concede that later in the puzzle, things do get more technical.

Unfortunately, my sleep-wake cycle resulted in me missing that window of opportunity. :)Regarding the remaining book code, i.e, one of the two possible hidden messages that could be retrieved by visiting one of the 14 locations pointed out by the GPS coordinates, I am quite certain that it decodes to the same .onion address as the other book code.The reasoning behind this is that it would be incongruent with the rest of this puzzle, which have had multiple clues leading in the same direction in each step, if one would have to retrieve messages from several locations to go to the next step.Looking at the book codes, one can also see that they are of the same length, and that they have the same digits at the same locations in the string (..6….2……6…….).Since there was no chance of continuing the puzzle, I have not looked at it since.However, it has recently come to my attention that there was actually a new image posted one year after the first one, with a continuation of the puzzle.
