Excuse me for joining late in this thread and not having the patience to read through it...

Did anyone else notice his GPA was equal to Pi ? perhaps this has some relation to things?

Thats three different mathematical constants:

2.71828 18284 59045 23536 being "e" or eulers constant

1.618033989 being the golden ratio constant

3.14159 being "pi"

I've been following the thread for about 24hrs now coz it dun seem to be catching on anywhere else...*sigh*

just noticed something that could be purely coincidental but I thought I'd just share it even if it is nothing or someones mentioned it before but on the "3scap3grav1ty" grid, not all the letters are positioned in the center.

Also, am I getting tired or did lokivanishes edit his/her post again??? the last time I remember it said it was edited yesterday...now it says today...nothing visibly different tho...

so we get an "EscapeGravity" leetspeak term then... So where does Escape Gravity fit into this?

That's 3 mathmatical equations found... Eulsters/Golden Ratio/Pi ... Surely these lead to something... but how can one escape gravity without going to space?

This... is annoying! :o

They are all unending constants, so if the bio site means that he had a full (unending) pi as GPA, it's impossibe... I think this is one of the hardest and most intriguing puzzles on the internet ever... We still don't know if it's even Microsoft...

Wonder if this has something to do with it:

I learned that music was a kind of astronomy and that pure light was infinite but invisible.

and the fact that small secrets govern the universe, and we approach them by vanishing. Most of all I learned to escape.

Could the Bio be of Max Planck, I mean that would give us another number of planks constant

No, the Casimir effect is commonly used to prove that fictional FTL (faster than light) drives are possible. It implies that two bodies that are extremely close will attract each other much more than they would by pure gravity. Also I read somewhere that between two such bodies the gravitational constant g decreases (or increases, not sure).

Just a thought.

Hi, I know I?ve just posted now, but I myself have been working with Jack Percival. We think wouldn't it be much easier if we got all our sources and ideas and put them on one webpage? This would make it easier and much more logical to understand.

It will also help us, so just at one page we can see pictures and how the whole process works? So if I put together a page with all relevant information probably www.am-cr.com/vanish Then we could just link to there and we could find all relevant info there. Also anyone who agrees with this idea email marc@am-cr.com And if you have a logical route of info, paste it into your email and we could make this into a organized routed way to figure this out! Thanks

And as for the fractal it is a Mendelbrot set but in the pseudo code from Wikipedia I don't see any natural constants used:

For each pixel on the screen do:
{
  x = x0 = x co-ordinate of pixel
  y = y0 = y co-ordinate of pixel

  x2 = x*x
  y2 = y*y

  iteration = 0
  maxiteration = 1000

  while ( x2 + y2 < (2*2)  AND  iteration < maxiteration ) 
  {

	y = 2*x*y + y0
	x = x2 - y2 + x0

	x2 = x*x	
	y2 = y*y

	iteration = iteration + 1
  }

  if ( iteration == maxiteration )
	colour = black
  else
	colour = iteration
}

But what about this image? It looks related image of the Golden Ratio but looks more like a photo of an island.

I think that we first need to solve the two puzzles that none of us figured out...

I agree. Do you agree that it would be easier if as we worked them out. Give the solution so more people know what's going on. Because people now are just getting the keys but no info is being told how they got to that answer. What do you think?

Okay, this may be completely off base but for the wh0isl0ki puzzle, if you hover your mouse over the entire thing in every direction, the cursor changes to a blinking text cursor over the following letters (I think this is all of them):

vpgwh0isl0kiocyjnrgraunjw3.png

The letters:

O C Y J N

R G R A U N I

But I haven't been able get anything from this so I'm not sure if it's just a glitch on my browsers part or what.

Here I found this on an old cd. It is a Mandelbrot Viewer, just click to zoom. I would have put up the link to www.libsdl.org but the site was down so i uploaded.
