We probably should have made this a separate thread a long time ago, since the title of this one was a previous puzzle that we already solved. Just start a new thread with the summary.

Duh Embarassed Great idea McPackage. Done. You can find that new thread here:

http://lonelygirl15.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=238207#238207

I will move the screen captures over too as soon a I get a chance. I'm pretty sure they are a piece of the puzzle.

This is from kayokosaeki I asked her to do a frame by frame dissection of the video, and she very graciously accepted. I moved it over from the previous thread where we were working on this so we can keep all the information that has not yet been solved intact.

Below are posted the results she found. Thankyou Kayokosaeki!

I realize I should give you more specific information, to eliminate any confusion. The video we need analyzed is by user WalterDW on Youtube, and it is called "A Proper Introduction" Here's the link -

http://youtube.com/watch?v=SrU0Im9LjNY

We have discovered there are some marks that look like letters roughly stenciled on a chalkboard. So far we have found several A's and several S's. We need to know exactly how many there are, and if there are any others we have missed. Frame count may also be important.

The other thing we have noticed are some dark grey rectangles that mimic film frames going by. This may or may not be important, but if there is a way to count them, we would like to.

And then of course anything else you see that might be a clue.

Again, thank you so much! I'm excited to see what you find





ok, so there are two frames in which a partial "A" appears superimposed over a 36.





then the 36 shifts to appear twice in one frame....



...before a superimposed "S" appears for two frames



[img]http://farm1.static.flickr.com/135/405287922_8f91a65b53_o.jpg[img]

then don't forget the "GY" which shifts once after 20 frames to be on the right side





then 36 appears again for only 4 frames, just like before only the blacks are darker (i won't post a freeze frame. its just as i say) then 77 appears, shifting once like this



and then 16 frames later the "S" appears again partially



the very end is a fade in and out of the sequence "A" "S" "A" in the same stencil lettering, but i'm going to save my photo bandwidth and not post those freeze frames. its exactly as janesalteredstates posted below

Edit: These are the images were captured from the end of the video by janesalteredstates:







as for the dark grey rectangles that mimic the old film reel, i really see no hidden meaning in them. its just an effect. there's practically one in every frame in the beginning portion (none in the middle or end), but i counted them anyway for you: 47

hope that helps. let me know if you need anything else

Here is a summary of the "Catalyst (Find Him)" puzzle. It's interesting to see the first use of codon/shifting encryption.

The video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egMFKctGzoE and the description is:

The video contains morse code:

which translates to 388F9T which is a tiny url http://tinyurl.com/388F9T resolving to:

BamHI (a double-cutting restriction enzyme, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restriction_enzyme) cuts GGATC after the first G, so what is left is:

which encodes:
Code:
GAT Aspartic acid
CCT Proline
TTT Phenylalanine
TAT Tyrosine
TCT Serine
TCG Serine
ACT Threonine
CAG Glutamine

which decodes as:

1st position: Aspartic Acid. 1st letter: A. 4 letters back in the alphabet (-4): W

2nd position: Proline. 7th letter: E. 4 letters back in the alphabet: A

3rd position: Phenylalanine. 8th letter: L

4th position: Tyrosine. 1st letter: T

5th position: Serine. 2nd letter: E

6th position: Serine. 3rd letter: R

7th position: Threonine. 9th letter: E. 1 letter back in the alphabet: D

8th position: Glutamine. 4th letter: T. 3 letters forward in the alphabet: W

Putting it all together, we get:

which takes us to Walter DW's videos and MySpace. Walter's YouTube profile contains hex which decodes to:

Perhaps some background information is in order. I was in charge of production at Facility J. It took us decades and we only produced nineteen of the damned things. You have taken care of two. The problem is that multiple exposures bring increased risk. So neither I nor the youngster nor any one of you can complete the task alone. The kid told me he had some success on the computer, and this is where we are now. Maybe we can work together in the future, assuming you arenít screw-ups like he is.
