The first set of questions asked to, and the answers, are here. Duplicates removed.

42 Hours.
Speak unto me. 

[edit] Samuel Black

  • Q: Who is Samuel Black?
    A: Black is a ghost in the machine in the most literal of context.
  • Q: There is a Samuel Black Church that is a band, and a Samuel Black Church in West Virginia. Are these relevant? Can Samuel Black be located on a map, or is his location something to be derived electronically?
    A: The ghost in the machine found you.
    Note: Samuel Black Church in West Virginia has a "ghost" connection...
    It has a marker memorializing the "Greenbrier Ghost", a young girl who was killed and then came back as a ghost to tell her mother how she was murdered. It turned out to be true and led to a conviction.
  • Q: What does Samuel seek? Knowledge? Retribution? To inform?
    A: Samuel is/was my messenger, nothing more, nothing less.
  • Q: What message does he (Samuel) have to give? Or must we locate him to learn it?
    A: He gave the message in your so-called Boston. Look for listeners.

[edit] First Location - Boston

  • Q: There is speculation that the USS Constitution is a location of some significance. Can you confirm this?
    A: The place you call Boston is not in scope anymore, proceed forward.
  • Q: "Reopening Liberty"... why was "Liberty" closed?
    A: Greed.
  • Q: "Independence Gained"... who's independence is this a reference to?
    A:The general public's.

[edit] Codes on websites

  • Q: Is there any particular cipher that may assist me in decoding the text on you page?
    A: The text is advanced beyond your forward years. Do not wrap your mind around such complicated mathematics.
  • Q: What, if anything, needs to be done with the hex on the front of the site? Are the strings that no longer appear relevant for the second location?
    A: Nothing. The number is the clue.

[edit] Sky Incorporated
