I believe by george he's got it!!!

I checked to see if there was a cipher sequence occurring in this solve, and as many already knew, there wasn't one which would explain why no one has been able to decode this message. I am astonished at what the second portion of this message is relaying, and it does appear as though it was an anagram. While catseye tried to read it phonetically, the second portion did not relay a coherent or narrative message like an anagram solution does, so I am going with (Redacted) on this one.

Nanette, as you know; the 340 cipher is tantalizing in terms of Zodiac Jack clues right on the surface of the thing. I've spent a little time just staring at the thing to kinda get my subconscious memory to mull things over.

For example, I'm confidant that the last word "Don't" on the Ramsey ransom letter was constructed to have the capital letter "D", resemble the hands of a clock. This gave him his time/date stamp that he liked to put on his works. Using the 1997 reference on the first page, supplies the other half of the time/date stamp. I made this observation while casually mulling things over. I think my subconscious memory played a role in this. I was very relaxed when this dawned on me.

Notice also that it's a departure for him to use the word "Don't" vs using "do not", which is more typical of his writings. I can't help but feel that this meant something to him.

My point is this: Notice the overall structure of the 340 cipher and how it differs in structure when compared to the 408 cipher. I'm not talking about the decoded results, I'm talking about observations that are there, like for example where the backwards facing letters are placed vs a string of characters that aren't from the Greek alphabet. Notice the 340 cipher appears to be constructed as 4 quadrants. Things like these, need to be casually mulled over.

Food for thought: When we take all of the picture post cards sent in by the Zodiac killer and ask the question "What do they all have in common", the answer is the word "Jack". Jackass, jackrabbit, one eyed jack, jack-o-lantern, etc. What can we include, what can we use to eliminate things, or move things around?

Do the arrow symbols tell us to place certain words in a different quadrant of the thing? Might this also result in a sequential message?

I think that sometimes we have to start more superficial when we look at things. The very first cipher, the 408/Harden's solve, gave a narrated message from the author. This coupled with what has long since been figured to be 18 symbols of random text.

The, "My Name Is" cipher, which couldn't possibly be a cipher due to the small amount of symbols. So what's left, anagram? I think that someone worked that out in Jack Tarrance's favor as well. Which is easy to do because the actual message is so short that it can be perceived anyway anyone wants to twist it in their favor.

However, I feel like most people are missing the consistency in the messages put forth by one person, and that is the cipher + anagram which is another Zodiac trait. I have said for a long time that there is two meanings or avenues to every message given by the Zodiac, and this does not side step that theory in any way. No wonder it hadn't been solved, and no wonder he said it was unsolveable. Quite frankly, the Zodiac knew he had you at the anagram issue when, "you the experts on this case" couldn't so much as solve the final 18 letters of an otherwise solveable cipher. Zodiac knew instinctively that he was way ahead of all LE, and could play this game at a whim. I bet that anagrams was a recently knew type of ciphering, and think I will have to research when they came into the public view. It's like DNA, it existed, but not to the average joe during that time.

Reposting (Redacted) 408 Anagram solve for the unsolved 18 symbols at the end of Harden's ciphered message:

****
 

Regards, and please feel free to write or call anything. Thanks for your help.

Nanette again:

You cannot deny that the letters anagram out to what is an obvious and expected taunt from the Zodiac, beter hope thei iit me. This is nothing short of, or nothing less than a good solve for this portion of the 408 cipher/Harden solve that I have ever seen.

My point is, the 408 cipher was not only a cipher, but an anagram as well with the above statement, "Better hope they get me" [sic], but as close to a solve as anyone has ever seen. I haven't even heard of anyone using an anagram system on any of the Zodiac's ciphers.

The "My Name Is" cipher, is not a cipher, but an anagram; and,

The 340 cipher is nonetheless another mix of a word game that includes an anagram for the final message, exactly like the 408 cipher did....

This is by far the most interesting read of the year, and I hope that after Christmas this message board will have the most interesting update/read of the year as well.

I looked up the history on anagrams, and I think that most will not be surprised as (Redacted) solve fits right in with the habits, MO, earlier communications, and persona that we know. So here it goes, Wikipedia relays this info:

An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; for example orchestra can be rearranged into carthorse. Someone who creates anagrams may be called an "anagrammatist".[1] The original word or phrase is known as the subject of the anagram.

Any word or phrase that exactly reproduces the letters in another order is an anagram. However, the goal of serious or skilled anagrammatists is to produce anagrams that in some way reflect or comment on the subject. Such an anagram may be a synonym or antonym of its subject, a parody, a criticism, or praise; e.g. William Shakespeare = I am a weakish speller (The epitemy of what the Zodiac tried to portray in his many communications)

The creation of anagrams assumes an alphabet, the symbols which are to be permuted. In a perfect anagram, every letter must be used, with exactly the same number of occurrences as in the anagrammed word or phrase; any result that falls short is called a subliminal anagram. Diacritics are usually disregarded (this is usually not relevant for English anagrams), and standard orthography is to be used. (Just what I was saying about using double vowels and consonants instead of diacritics)

Anagrams can be traced back to the time of Moses, as "Themuru" or changing, which was to find the hidden and mystical meaning in names.[2] They were popular throughout Europe during the Middle Ages, for example with the poet and composer Guillaume de Machaut.[3] They are said to go back at least to the Greek poet Lycophron, in the third century BCE; but this relies on an account of Lycophron given by John Tzetzes in the 12th century.[4] (The, “My Name Is” cipher/now known as anagram)

Modern period[edit]

Examples from the nineteenth century are the transposition of "Horatio Nelson" into "Honor est a Nilo" (Latin = Honor is from the Nile); and of "Florence Nightingale" into "Flit on, cheering angel".[16] The Victorian love of anagramming as recreation is alluded to by Augustus De Morgan[17] using his own name as example; "Great Gun, do us a sum!" is attributed to his son William De Morgan, but a family friend John Thomas Graves was prolific, and a manuscript with over 2,800 has been preserved.[18][19][20]

With the advent of surrealism as a poetic movement, anagrams regained the artistic respect they had had in the Baroque period. The German poet Unica Zürn, who made extensive use of anagram techniques, came to regard obsession with anagrams as a "dangerous fever", because it created isolation of the author.[21] The surrealist leader André Breton coined the anagram Avida Dollars for Salvador Dalí, to tarnish his reputation by the implication of commercialism. (Poetic association from the dawns end when we know that there are heavy poetic overtones to the Zodiac’s communications)

Anagrams are connected to pseudonyms, by the fact that they may conceal or reveal, or operate somewhere in between like a mask that can establish identity. For example, Jim Morrison used an anagram of his name in The Doors song L.A. Woman, calling himself "Mr. Mojo Risin' ". The use of anagrams and fabricated personal names may be to circumvent restrictions on the use of real names, as happened in the 18th century when Edward Cave wanted to get around restrictions imposed on the reporting of the House of Commons.[26] In a genre such as farce or parody, anagrams as names may be used for pointed and satiric effect.

Pseudonyms adopted by authors are sometimes transposed forms of their names; thus "Calvinus" becomes "Alcuinus" (here V = U) or "François Rabelais" = "Alcofribas Nasier". The name "Voltaire" of François Marie Arouet fits this pattern, and is allowed to be an anagram of "Arouet, l[e] j[eune]" (U = V, J = I) that is, "Arouet the younger". (My thoughts exactly, “My Name Is” cipher/now known as an anagram)

Games and puzzles[edit]

Anagrams are in themselves a recreational activity, but they also make up part of many other games, puzzles and game shows. The Jumble is a puzzle found in many newspapers in the United States requiring the unscrambling of letters to find the solution. Cryptic crossword puzzles frequently use anagrammatic clues, usually indicating that they are anagrams by the inclusion of a descriptive term like "confused" or "in disarray". An example would be Businessman burst into tears (9 letters). The solution, stationer, is an anagram of into tears, the letters of which have burst out of their original arrangement to form the name of a type of businessman.

Numerous other games and contests involve some element of anagram formation as a basic skill. Some examples:

  • In Anagrams, players flip tiles over one at a time and race to take words. They can "steal" each other's words by rearranging the letters and extending the words.
  • In a version of Scrabble called Clabbers, the name itself being an anagram of Scrabble, tiles may be placed in any order on the board as long as they anagram to a valid word.
  • On the British game show Countdown, contestants are given 30 seconds to make the longest word from nine random letters.
  • In Boggle, players make constrained words from a grid of sixteen random letters, by joining adjacent cubes.
  • On the British game show BrainTeaser, contestants are shown a word broken into randomly arranged segments and must announce the whole word. At the end of the game there is a "Pyramid" which starts with a three-letter word. A letter appears in the line below to which the player must add the existing letters to find a solution. The pattern continues until the player reaches the final eight-letter anagram. The player wins the game by solving all the anagrams within the allotted time.
  • In Bananagrams, players place tiles from a pool into crossword-style word arrangements in a race to see who can finish the pool of tiles first.

Ciphers[edit]

Multiple anagramming is a technique used to solve some kinds of cryptograms, such as a permutation cipher, a transposition cipher, and the Jefferson disk.[  (This concludes the following theory that fits 100% with the Zodiac communications)



I think that people have been brain washing all of us for quite sometime...

The 1st thing that stood out to me about (Redacted) solve is he used Oranchak symbols that Im confident are the right symbols JT created and not smudged, inked over like whats in papers & books ...dots, lines and all.

Another thing I notice is that much like Hardens 408 solve theres what most ppl think is gibberish but its not. Its just JT switching to a different type of cipher morphing to another phase, another puzzle. If ppl only know what I know...... think like an Indian & you will see and understand JT, what he was doing Zodiac era letters, ciphers and all.

Merry XMAS all. I believe best way to contrive JTs name in 340 is Jac D/soft T AR AG/ soft H (like g in Jorge/ Hor Hay or G in through) OE/a NCE thus Jac Tarance. I already posted this on twitter & Facebook but wanted to add it here, too.

I think that the phonetic referrence to the D/ soft T is at a minimun something that most can agree on, and while (Redacted) believed that it was hard K in Jac (D)=(K), but I would have to check the reference from (Redacted) and see how he interpreted this letter to make sure, but the soft "T" for the "D" from catseye does make more sense. Either way, I think that (Redacted) is not only on track with the message being relayed, but that it fits with the exact same type of linguistics and taunts that would be expected. I know that anyone who reads this will find that my views are biased, and expectedly so. I already know the truth, and yes, this confirms it. It is also the best rendition of a solve that has been presented, and not just because it says JacD Aragoence. This is just a plus. I am more stoked over the message being portrayed because it is exactly what we would expect. Good job to (Redacted), and everyone else who is a nay-sayer, can eat his solve!!!

Pls note that many of the Native American symbols I am confident I came up with as JT real ones used in communications like z408 z340 z13 z32 range from Cal/Nev border to New Mexico where CIA & military are trained. US been training people in the wilderness for decades-places like Nevada Badlands, Toiyabe Nat. Forest, Chaco Canyon & more. Also, CIA grew out of WWII Navajo Code Talkers & the OSS. Navajo Code Talkers were kept in secrecy until much of their WWII activities were declassified 1968.

Maybe more msgs to be found by (Redacted) sooner than later? 340 is actually 341 symbols. See line 6 darkened square with backwards K. It makes 341. Oranchak 340 webtoy has only the k-ish symbol and (Redacted) has only the k-ish 1 in the great work he did in his 1st decoding. Point is square may make different cipher msg or a 2nd msg and lead to a different series of digraph msgs. Jack Tarrance did the square & k- thing for a reason Yes, (Redacted) is aware of the TWO symbols. Hope to see what he makes out of this! This all reminds me of my #1 fave movie: National Treasure: Book of Secrets! Codes, messages and deeper codes with more messages!

I cannot pretend to understand the Indian connection just because I have not studied the symbols that you have. I understand that just like you, most of the symbols used were viewed by Greek, Latin, and American Indian alike seeing how they all had the same sky to look to for many of the symbols, and symbols or drawings were the only form of communication at certain points in time, so it would make sense that many of them overlap.

In simplest terms the ancient observers of the skies all over the world told people how to survive -shelter, water, food, hunt, time (lunar/solar), establish latitude/longitude, travel, communicate, before modern conviences. There are many similiar ancient to old symbols found all over the world. California to New Mexico regions are apparently used to train government people/agents/military how to survive in wilderness, avoid capture, how to sustain captivity in enemy hands (esp under extreme conditions). Even orienteers train in the areas too. Math, languages & more evolved from the ancient observers of the sky & their surroundings.

Catseye, it might be better stated with some type of source that supports the CIA training across these areas.

Even the Ramsey ransom letter could be an encoded/encrypted document.

I'm discovering more and more web pages dedicated to the 340 cipher. Several of them are treating the document as though it has a 'quadrant' structure.

* has had his work posted for at least three years prior to our most recent familiarity with him. My first impression was that it was the work of catseye.

A considerable amount of planning and time went into JT's crime documents.

I am onto the possibility since a message is absolutely delivered in every single public communication that made the news or paper.
