[TRAILHEAD?] Don't Trust the Tesseract
via emailed tip from "David"

An entry in the 2014 Sci-Fi London 48-hour film challenge:
https://vimeo.com/92125376

The website at the end points to this:
http://donottrustthetesseract.co.uk

And the letters in bold point to this:
http://donottrustthetesseract.co.uk/telekpoison/
Something's going on...

Interesting. It is counting down to April 28 22:00. I guess we wait and see...

Anyone know where the QR code at the beginning leads?

BTW: feaglobal.co.uk (the e-mail addresses shown on the letter in the video) does not work. QR Code is too hard for my reader to read. Someone may have to re-create it from scratch... good luck!

Here is a cleaned up version of the QR code that scans.



However, it leads right back to http://donottrustthetesseract.co.uk

I have also been working on the background images on the two pages and pulling together the messed up text. So far I have this.

Someone with better eyesight might be able to read the original text on the sign in the video....

In addition the top cd in the safe is labelled "FEA_SEC_Aug 2026" although i cant make out the text on the envelope.

I highly doubt that, on the site it mentions something called "telek poison" which is not mentioned at all anywhere in the marvel universe. Also, it seems like "tesseract" is more of a group then an actual item this time around.

Underneath "the tesseract" it looks like it says Please have your National ID Card ready for inspection. Underneath "fight for your" it seems to say Non-compliance will result in and after looking at the bigger picture here, it looks like the rest of that sentence is immediate detention.

However, take that with a grain of salt - I've been fighting a migraine all day and may be seeing something not there. This is just the first thing in the last few weeks that has caught my interest enough to make me want to register and join in. Smile

Hi writergirl: Big welcome to uF & hope your migraine has subsided. From what I was able to suss out it appears writergirl is spot-on with what is written on that sign

Thank you. I'm eager to be here. I've been sort of lurking on and off of a couple of months now - just haven't felt that I had anything to contribute before (not that I think I'll be a lot of help now).

It seems to say District Boundary Zone just above the words "the Tesseract" but I can't make out what's beneath the "Do Not Trust." Not sure if it's intentional or even worth mentioning, but there's a D6 sprayed on the wall next to the body in the first part of that video.

Remember that a Tesseract is actually a (in layman's terms) cube inside a cube. It's usually shown as a representation of what a 4D shape would look like in our 3D world.
Maybe if the "Tesseract" was a group, they used the name to show how much more advanced they are compared to their adversaries. But I'm thinking it's more along the lines of some AI or other synthetic being.
It's kind of hard to tell with what little information we have, however, and speculating like this isn't exactly healthy.

I haven't seen that since the "ilovebees" - Halo days.

The "cube inside a cube" is somewhat misleading. It's impossible to represent a tesseract accurately on paper as we are limited in the number of dimensions in our world. It's esier to represent it as a moving image. This is a tesseract rotating:



It's in effect two parallel CUBES connected (in the same way that a cube is two parallel SQUARES connected)

I'm reasonably interested in this.

The countdown completes:

Quote:
November 6th 2026 - 24 hours since the pathogen was released

The silence is what gets to me in here. Itís so quiet compared to the labs.

In the labs there were other copies - millions of us; all bound together in fear of the secret s of the outside world.

In the labs I had John - my best friend and the one person I knew who wasnít a liar. He told me the truth about Telek poison.

He knew what the Tesseract planned to do with it - theyíd been developing biological weapons at FEA for years.

But this one was different - a pathogen affecting only human beings. A clean slate for them to write on anew.

John was a good man - he might have helped the bastards make the thing, but he sure as hell didnít plan on letting them use it.

He made me his confidante while he carried out his investigation; obtaining security footage of the testing labs, and any documents he could get his hands on.

Hiding them down here for the Resistance.

He was in such a state that day when they came for him - he practically threw his security chain at me, and begged me to finish his work.

He knew they were going to kill him but he needed to see this through.

Of course once he was dead, I had to steal another chain, but Iíve kept his round my neck all the same.

It's a way it's a kind of comfort. It feels like he's here as my defence , waiting to protect me when the Service batten down the hatches...


Spoiler (Rollover to View):
There are some obvious spacings leading to the phrase "Secret weapons of defence"

Leads to http://donottrustthetesseract.co.uk/swod/

have dropped an email to MRDSPLATFEAglobal.co.uk and will see what happens.
