The sites are down. Anyone got any hints/clues/advances?
I have been suspecting this for a while, since this popped up actually. It literally tells you that this time there will be someone trying to distract and misguide.
about the fake site being 'real' ( 4048712.co.nf ).. the url changes to an ip address, the ip address leads to the united states, it also has nothing else useful only a photo of the cicada if that's useful..
found this in the image on http://126.96.36.199/
xconclan0.wix.com slash xcon#!law/c1e3c
it wont be bananas
remember we did it first monkeys still have that digi cam thing thought software

I posted this in another thread, but I think that the prime numbers are significant. The number 3301 is a prime number as well as the lifecycle of the cicada.. every 13 to 17 years.
The people who set up these puzzles must have some affection for number theory, and I wonder if they want to recruit people to work on this. Could even be some crazy mathematicians who want to have a bit of fun.
The pattern to the prime numbers appears completely random and and remains unsolved to this day. If anyone were to find some sort of order to these numbers they would not only be written into history but also be able to exploit any type of RSA encryption. This encryption is used for all online commerce.
Lots of companies and people are invested in this kind of security, so I wouldn't be suprised if they want to recruit genius savant types.
I translated the words in the description
I should like to say that the change in the bodies and in the New .
It is not easy without uncovering
ive also started decrypting and translating the various numbers using US-ASCII
(cicada is obsessed with prime numbers)
3301 is a prime number
3301+4048=7349 which is also a prime number
also if anyone remembers the early clue we got,which was the calendar,it redirected us to the year 4048
the year 4048 and the year 7349 pretty much have the same day-date analogy up until february where 7349 has 28 days and 4048 29 days.
this will keep you busy for now if anyone's wondering about the "long forgotten clues"
After translating the numbers I got from the original key I had to translate it to binary and then text and then tried to decrypt it but at this point I've reached my limit of knowledge on Cryptography.>>17171930
I think you may be right a lot of the Sophia youtube videos seem to be about fighting the "Man" and his currency.
The site is down right now, but a while ago when you writed any text in the password box this would appear:
There is the poem: http://www.potw.org/archive/potw405.html
Hmm this is very interesting, a good way cause an economic crash would be to find some sort of order to the primes (or alternatively find an algorithm that can efficiently factor any number) and exploit RSA encryption. I just looked it up and bitcoin uses ECDSA encryption, this method also seems to rely on prime number generation as well.
I think we should talk about the fact that there seems to be no way to see who is hosting the site its not like theres proxys or some other server provider it literally says that there is no host.
in reference to the second video:
the first few seconds clue you in to the fact that this is played on a guitar in some sort of open tuning.
if someone were to take time to learn this in that specified tuning, maybe the fret numbers with which the melody is played can be accumulated and made useful. there are a few screw ups though so it could prove to be futile.
just bullshitting though, but this is what i would do as a guitar bro. i would do it but wont
why dont you use a jew calendar
their years are higher
The site seems to be redirecting to this now.
I feel like this is pointing towards more than just red herrings and useless clues. Theres probably gonna be shills left and right spreading misinformation.
Or is that just what they want us to think :^)
>be in /x
>Doesnt know wat is Cicada
ITT: Cicada is a internet-reality game that someones does every year.
The last time that Cicada answer was giving, the game-makers saids the clue wasnt going to be published in 4chan
Maybe a copy-cat
However i like this stuff
this is real
the link about a coutdown, send to some page to a song
this is the song
This will sound super idiot, but i use Whazam on it, and its not match with anything
They make this song
I'm just going to leave this here and let you decide what's real and what's fake.
The official Twitter image https://infotomb.com/4gq25.jpg from @1231507051321 is PGP signed with the correct key. You need to run 'outguess -r 4gq25.jpg message.txt' to get the signed message.
To me, this makes the PI-puzzle look fraudulent. Still probably fun to work out, but not 3301.
The puzzle answer is just a long list that explains the importance of prime numbers and that you should never forget about them or the fact that Kai-lo Ren in the star wars is Han Solo's son and he kills Han
Woa dude. Just the other day I thought it kinda looks like a map.
Didn't post tho because who the fuck knows why..
Good to know I wouldn't be a complete good for nothing if I just cared to utter my thoughts more often.
Nah, there was something similar a year ago, and later they asked the creator why he did it, apparently he said that he did it for fun. Cicada is something else, more serious and more difficult than gateway-71.
Both the Pi and Twitter are legit guys, Its confirmed.Both warned against taking a false path. Its obvious even to a dumb guy like me. Its all about music, We need to go back to the Liber Primus and figure out if there is a music angle. Also, look for updates on their Mobi. I am thinking they may give us hints to decode the Liber.
I am thinking both are real.Both juxtiposed authentic versus false paths. That is no accident.
Only thing is, they wrote "one is as loud as many' Does this refer to one tweet being as good as the many tweets they use to do? One more thing. The new version has sumerian words that fit into the whole above and below mysticism thing. Could that be some kind of hint?
In quotes this poem relates to: "The poem of course refers to Guy Fawkes and his now infamous plot to blow up London's Houses of Parliament on November 5th 1605. Fawkes's aim was to remove King James I from the throne, and restore Britain's Catholic monarchy.Nov 3, 2012"
I got this from a link, from a QR code. Will update with what the link leads too. For both images I cranked up edge detection. I found things in both. Converse as you will.
When you turn on detect edges you find a link, it leads to this. This image had edge detection on
Without. The equation appears to be a gravitational slingshot.
fake and gay - here's the real announcement from cicada - outgess it and validate the pgp ~ watch the date - only legit one atm
Again, same poster. This is not a threat of violence, nor is it an inherent demand. I am warning you all of the dangers of not going with the natural flow and harmony of the universe. You guys are creating more problems for millions of galaxies in a ripple effect.
Let it go?
Wait, are you really involved with cicada on some level?
Holy mother theresa, if so just tell me why you guys want to get only the few that knows computer language?
I'm a law student and I really fucking follow everything you guys do that leaks out and everything freaking matches with everything I studied on religions and human interactions.
I want to get to one of your groups more than almost anything.
this is a good idea actually since NIN is known to hide images in songs and can be viewed by running it trough a spectrographer.
coincidentally NIN appears on the wolf head >>17184562
About the NIN ARG:
Are you trying to scare me? What I'm posting about is what I see in the world. In a thread that I feel people are trying to wake up to the lies that they see in front of them, but instead a lot of people are falling down the false path. The violence that is going down is entirely deplorable and senseless and it hurts me to see you guys set yourself up for imminent failure on a sociological and therefore galactic level. There are certain laws that govern the universe on a large scale. I would suggest you follow natural law.
You can use emphasis to twist my statements in whatever way you'd like but you should really stop being such a hateful person and try and help this planet rather than not facing the pain that you caused.
Well, first I don't even know if all of these posts are yours.
Second you don't even know me. I'm just like this right now because I had hopes someone from cicada had showed up, and I really want to know what goes on in there.
And by the way, I wasn't sacring you in the least nor threatening or anything. But if you see that way, right now you just look like pansy that can't protect himself from external "threats" and can't suck it up.
If you you are from cicada, I just lost interest.
It's at a stage where we need the FnG stuff to take the heat. You will see why later, just keep your head down and eyes open.
Interest will fade, when it's quieter it is a smoother journey.
IMGUR page gives an image, like so.
Which on playing with levels in PS and inverting the image, gives off a new imgur image link. (attaching image)
Which leads to a 404.
Come on community.
BUT i have a feeling, the QR obtained image, and consequent inverted image link, is a dead end. they are out to decieve us, they said so themselves. Basing the dead end theory on the image size, which is 800*926, which is not a prime no. Hence.
someone tell me the symbols mean these videos
This is what the worldwide posters had in them:

Lady and gentlemen. Hello. This seems to be the most active thread for CIcada 2016, from what i've seen. I'm no good at coding, but i've found some stuff through observation. Let me know what you guys think. -
New QR deal. Physical clue. Curiosity here, is, all locations are in and around portugal.
2. QR takes you to an image; on this link;
A) First glance of the image, seems skeptical, because the size is a 800*926, which isn't prime, so it might be the deciever in cicada, which they claimed exist through their hydra post. But photoshop manipulation shows that the text is inside a box, which is 7*7, prime again. so i'm taking this with a grain of salt.
- Peculiarity of this image; the one with the text aspirations and being human narration, is the grammar. The letters which are in capital especially. They all seem to be some code. Do not know what language it is, but there seems to be a pattern. Especially in the lines, towards the end, each capital letter is like a binary code, of 1001, and i'm assuming the A is hex, for 10 so, it continues with binary, till the end, where letters like H are in caps and the pattern goes bust. So, it's something.
B) Manipulating using photoshop, gives us another link, to another imgur image. Which is; http://i.imgur.com/mfX6QxU.png
Manipulating the new wolf image, gives us a code, which, from what i could decipher, reads as inferno - normally, and another word, 'nin' faced normally, and uiu - when read upside down.
I tried using outguess on the wolf image, thinking inferno would be the key, but rebirth said that the image is a virgin.
Willing to help/work together to get to the bottom of this.
Your thoughts on this folks?
you wish it said that, shit goes way deeper
ran it through forwards
Wolf that heralds The End of The World
