waterfall from the past

A project log for itanimulli code crackers

cracking the code of the itanimulli riddle

As blinkinaday noted, there is a second, different waterfall image from the wayback machine, that can be accessed here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150911223837/https://infotomb.com/uy6vy.png

This project log is about deciphering the stego and FEZ code of this image (boring). You can skip it entirely and just download the results if you wish:

https://cdn.hackaday.io/files/8762374873408/Waterfall_Wayback.zip

Ok, here we go, this is the image. It looks like the image on the itanimulli page, but, if you look closely (very closely..), there are yet some differences:

I will now quickly deconstruct this without getting into too much details:

LSB stego

RGB

Red

Green

Blue

This is also the point where I realize that this project needs a GitHub repository :) I'll make one asap.

Ok, next step is deciphering that stuff.

Do you remember that the corner "orientation" markers also decode to different values in each of the RGB color channels? Maybe this orientation markers are the "reading shape" of the relevant data we're looking for...

Bear in mind that the FEZ alphabet only contains 6 glyphs, each of which can have 4 orientations for a total of 24 characters. It is actually a very efficient code in terms of information coding. 

http://uk.ign.com/wikis/fez/Fez_Alphabet 

It also means a page of FEZ can be read in four different orientations (by repeatedly rotating the whole page through 90 degrees) and thus produce 4 different results (or 8 if you allow reading the actual characters left to right and right to left, 16 if you allow top to bottom and bottom to top).

I think your on to something here. Remember the comment with the waterfall "the exhumation has been reversed".  Obviously decoding the fez symbols in the mirror or after rotating would create entirely different characters. I like that idea.

MacGruber wrote 01/02/2016 at 02:32 point

is it possible that like the berenstain bears that the the waterfall image from the past never really existed except in are alternate universe that we seem to have a vague memory of?

What is the significance of the tiny character in the top left corner, of each of the colour images? Are we meant to use that character for anything else? Do the three characters together form a word, or a Vignenere key?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Moritz Walter wrote 12/29/2015 at 23:33 point

The marker appears to be FEZ code for 1 (red) ,2 (green) and 3 (blue). I've tried Vigenère on the FEZ fields in various attempts, but without results. Also, the ambivalence of UV and KQ in FEZ kinda break the usual shifting order of a typical Vigenère since the FEZ alphabet doesn't really have a defined order.
