No doubt you’ve followed the tragedy in Norway closely. There’s a group working on decrypting the killer’s manifesto, “a rambling manifesto that at times rails at “cultural Marxists” and “multiculturalism”. I have not read the 1500 page ranting myself, but I do suspect it would be worthwhile to do so.
There isn’t much information on the group itself, it seems to be nothing more than a collection of amateur cryptologists. Great work has been done by such people in the past, actually.
Some points of interest from their Website:
- after some analysis, it has been discovered that the first segment contains information which can be easily converted into geographical coordinates (which coordinate system is not known)
- when plotted on a map in the most obvious way, these coordinates/points correspond with major european cities (see graphical map at http://u.no.net/4fi )
- some of these cities are represented with more than one coordinate/point (ex: oslo, stockholm, london, paris)
- the coordinates are precise down to street level, resolution is limited by an uncertainty of approximately 111 (n-s) x 55.5 (e-w) meters
I don’t know how much of this time is fruitful. I think that in the face of any tragedy, most of us just spend time trying to figure out how something that can happen. We have an innate need to rationalize the world.
However, I don’t necessarily believe that this is not time well spent. So far, I’ve seen nothing which points fingers at shadowy government organizations (I’m looking at you, Loose Change). It seems more likely that these people are running on the assumption that Breivik was trying to communicate something more.
