The unsolveable puzzle that is supposed to be solved. Today’s video is intended to make your brain hurt. But therein lies the tale.
Are there metaphors here for your writing life? Or something to add to your book? How about a character who creates crossword puzzles…by hand… or one who solves the hardest puzzles in ink, not a pencil?
Or someone who can look at a series of numbers and then recite them to you in reverse order, without looking (I know someone like that.)
Let your imagination play today. Or simply go read a great “locked door” mystery.

Oooh, that was really something, Steve! Wow, just wow! Thanks for sharing.

What an incredible tale. I wonder what the poet laureate of the Steve Laube Agency will say about this!

I say it doesn’t say anything, and the artist has been playing a hoax on everyone for thirty years. LOL I’d think these people would have better things to do than continue to try and solve an “unsolvable” kryptos. 🙂
Let’s hope there aren’t any typos in the code. Wouldn’t that be embarrassing?
I hope the creator has a provision in his will for the solution to be disclosed, eventually.
It’s interesting to earn how people spend their time and energy. How we all have different interests and abilities. It makes me wonder why the CIA is required to have a sculpture. How is that important to what they do and who makes such requirement’s?
I thought this was incredibly fun and created my own “crypto.” Each paragraph has it’s own key. I don’t think anyone would ever try to figure out my little rambling, but I had a blast creating it! I think I’ve been writing in the wrong genre. I should try sci fi where I could create my own language! LOL!
This is beautiful. It’s nice t know we still have mysteries in the midst of that modern vertical learning curve. walk in beauty
