Does that CIA Sculpture, Kryptos, employ a Fibonacci Cipher? Vorlath, a.k.a. “Krazy Kryptos,” has been spinning his Kryptos wheels for some time now. He proposes at his blog that the misspellings in Kryptos are a clue to be used in conjunction with the misaligned letters of K3. The position of those misspellings form a Fibonacci Sequence as observed by other sleuths years ago.
What Vorlath suggests is that endYAhR (capital letters depicted here are actually raised letters in the sculpture) is a reversed Fibonacci sequence. Matter-of-factly, he is correct, and I think the correlation between this and the misspellings is noteworthy if nothing more than one of the hundred thousand insignificant coincidences we could fine in the sculpture. However, there are other anomalies that suggest “a reverse” of something. We have the backward ciphertext or tableau. We have “Antipodes (look up the meaning),” the CIA sculpture’s sister sculpture at the Hirshhorn Museum, and we’re aware of other oddities that may tie a Reverse Fibonacci Sequence into Kryptos.
When Sanborn asked, “Has anyone figured out what those are? They’re important,” he implied that the misaligned letters could be interpreted with some finality (not to imply certainty) that leads us into the entire algorithm that unlocks the cipher known the world over as K4. Is, “Yes, Mr. Sanborn, we know what those are. Now what?” get us any closer to the answers? I certainly think it’s worth the effort to pursue at this point in time.
