 [Puzzle] Yshk La, For God / Kendra must meet Bryan
DO NOT LET THEM SEE THE IMAGES

a puzzle was started beginning with this post
http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=282316#282316

thebruce received an email from YshkLanti that said:
Quote:
From: "Yshklanti" YshklantiSPLAT746865656e64.com
To: me

Find for yourself the answers you seek, FOR GOD holds many of the pieces.


Which led to the discovery that the yshkla.gif images were stegged as follows:

http://746865656e64.com/nonflash/yshkla_01.gif = 592h.bmp
http://746865656e64.com/nonflash/yshkla_02.gif = 823w.bmp

http://746865656e64.com/nonflash/yshkla_17.gif = IREAD.txt (see below)
http://746865656e64.com/nonflash/yshkla_18.gif = wherenow.bmp

Each of these contained a piece to a puzzle that when assembled created a larger picture.
However, one piece of the puzzle is missing.
(18 pieces but one is missing)



Inverting the colors gives a much better story of what's really going on.



Here is the image rotated so that the goddess is right side up:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
bryan, blood, suspect/s, kendra, must, meet, bryan

And the birany at the bottom says:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

Here is a clearer image of that Ark picture....



I don't know if it means anything, but a long time ago I referenced Isis and Nephthys as maybe being the winged figures in the eye photo....on the ark, you can see the images of Isis and Nephthys as the winged creatures facing each other on the sides of the pentagram, along with the Eye of Horus (or Ra) appearing on either side as well...above the pentagram is another depiction of Isis with wings...

I can't track down the creator of this image, but I find it very interesting...it blends Egyptian, Pagan, and Christianity symbols in one image..

As for the woman sitting on the Ark, I don't know.....Isis and Nephthys protected Osiris...a male.....

If any of this has something to do with the game, I'm not sure.....It could all just be an interesting image that was just used to let us know to flip the larger image....

I've attached the assemblage with the file names for each .bmp. Seems to convey a message: "Trapped traveler (Bryan?). Sacrifice was here, look for where it is now." Also, since "name.bmp" contains most of the body of the seated figure, perhaps discovering her name will be helpful.

Alternatively, the sacrifice could be trapped, and the traveler could have been "here". So maybe if this depicts a specific location we can figure out where it is.

Hmm . . . interesting jsquared. That larger version of the image you found (and I haven't been able to locate another matching version anywhere else on the web, yet), shows a positive for jphide in stegdetect. Could be a false positive, but it's still intriguing.

The context of the site containing the image is very "DiVincci Code-ish" in nature and tone, so perhaps the woman sitting on the Ark is meant to be Mary Magdalene.

EDIT: Correction, the smaller thumbnail sized version of that image (on the same site) shows a positive, while the larger does not. Seems to make things lean in the "false positive" direction.

Found the original image. Appropriately, it's off the coast of St. Lucia:

well, looks like the connection between the ark of the covenant and Atlantis is not a new one. See this page:

http://www.greatdreams.com/covenant.htm

the basic gist is that way way long ago, the Anaki visited earth. (wasn't it moleculaar who suggested ancient astronauts during the pregame? good call!) They happened to land in Atlantis and brought with them the Ark of the Covenant, which contained an energy creating device of some sort. Using the power in the Ark, people were able to build the Great Pyramid. The account is sort of confusing if you're not already on that wave length, so the best i could understand was that the Ark shot lazers at things. I'm still looking for the connection to a mysterious veiled woman tho.

The above link is definitely worth a read... come on! Arks shooting lazers and something called a "spermatic crystal?" Golden!!

(Edit)

This, I figured, was important, so I put it on top. Remember that were were told NOT to show the pictures to Bryan. I don't know these were the pictures or not. But, the name Chaya is found all OVER this picture. So, I don't think we're supposed to tell Bryan about Chaya either, my 2 cents.

(End Edit, continue along please)

Yay! Razz For once I found something before everyone else. Hehe. So, I heard about an email saying that those with pure eyes will see the name. So, by opening up photoshop and taking the original picture we put together, inverting it so we get the normal, shadowy horizon ... then increasing the brightness almost 80 points and increasing the contrast almost past 80 or 90 (or further, don't remember), we get this image:



Looks like we know who Bryan loves, or maybe loved?



Chaya is a type of Tree Spinich, as well as a character in Star Gate: Atlantis (Although I'm sure this has nothing to do with that show). There is more information on the name here, which says: "Chaya: 'Shadow'. A Hindu goddess; a reflection of the goddess Sanjna. She was the consort of Surya and the mother of Sani. "

Hopefully someone can take this further than I can. I'm tired Very Happy

Way to go Daikah.

Chaya is also the English word for the feminine form of the Hebrew word chai which means life.

Folks, I've had a hunch from the beginning...I don't know if Bryan is to be trusted....I'm starting to wonder if we are supposed to stop his meeting with Hank....

One thing is for sure, we need to make sure Bryan doesn't cook for Hank...

Quote:
Chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron. However, raw chaya leaves are toxic as they contain a glucoside that can release toxic cyanide. Cooking is essential prior to consumption to inactivate the toxic components. In this respect chaya is similar to cassava, which also contains toxic hydrocyanic glycosides and must be cook before being eaten.


I replied to the email YshkLanti sent me about the woman on the ark with:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Thank you..

Can you tell me, is Bryan a danger to Hank and Kendra?


His response:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
That I do not know I only see what I am allowed


hmm....could this be something we are supposed to see for ourselves?

who allows YshkLanti to see?

And, after redoing the contrasts and monkeying with the image further, we can confirm that the girl on the ark, does have a name.



Wee!

Now go forth! Explored "Understandwhy" so we can understand her story!
