[PUZZLE] "Unlock the sound"(solved) & "Open the door"

Been playing with the text image in the Node 6 signal




edit: These first 9 posts were split off from the BHRC thread. The email from J&R gives our directive. ~ drizjr

Many times the audio files were difficult to hear. We would struggle for days trying to transcribe them, and then they would be updated to a more audible version. I suspect that that weird sound on the nodes may have been changed as well.

No I'm getting about the same.

8 lines

i think the last 4 are
contact with the
______ when asleep (???)
and with the
______ when awake (???)


you aren't losing your mind. 'tho with this problem we all can probably use more sleep.

looks like the mystery of the text on the image might be solved thanks to a user on the CBS Jericho message board by the name of:

"Tippy Parview (beck78)"

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
A man in the night kindles a light for himself when his vision is extinguished; living he is in contact with the dead when asleep, and the sleeper when awake


YAY!

from schumi:

the quote (Fragment 26, Clement. Strom. IV,141,2
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

A man in the night kindles a light for himself when his vision is extinguished; living he is in contact with the dead, when asleep, and with the sleeper, when awake)
is found in a book of presocratic philosophy

The quote is from a work by the Heraclitus of Ephesos

He was also known in his time as "the dark one" or "skoteinos"

Heraclitus of Ephesus (fl. 500-480 BC), also known as "the Riddler" and "the Obscure,"

well Heraclitus would be happy to know that Tom Tooman is following through with the nickname.

Great work unlocking the sound, Tippy Parview (beck78)! (link to Jericho Board solve)
I'm thinking that we have to apply something about Heraclitus' quote to open a door. Now where could that door be?

Just to throw out some ideas...

Could it be on AYAB? (There's the door the raven sits over)
or the Ravenwood login page
or maybe something to do with Green Door Development on the J&R site. (that page doesn't have much on it yet)

eta: or could it be something from the sacredhatcasino site, since that *is* the linked thread in the email.

Hi,

I'm totally new to this so forgive me if this is a really stupid comment but...

What struck me about that quote was "the sleeper" because that is the name of a poem by E.A. Poe and the AYAB site has scenes from The Raven on it. Probably nothing, I don't know.

Maybe another letter count into a quote?
Watch for new radio traffic or changes?
Somehow use a count from the "itwillhappen" game? First card to the player or something over many games. Has anyone been able to count the cards prior to the shuffle? It seems different each time, is it covering different words, letters? There seems to be less than 20 cards (in the shuffle I mean) are some mssng?
The Poe tie in is interesting, good spotting PoshGirl Smile
Must get back to work, no time for play. Happy Thanksgiving to all!! Razz Razz Razz

mgelles, sorry for such a late reply to your question.
"Open the door" was part of the email the Jericho fans received. (link ). I suppose no one replied to your question sooner because it's not know exactly what door we're opening.
I suspect it's at the end of the itwillhappen trail... but Dunno
