Still working on looking for leads in Kryptos.

The eighth iteration involved a manipulation of the K4 text to get the “KR, YPT, OS” pieces lined up on the left hand side.  It’s not a classic transposition but it was worth a try.

Experiment Eight

Here’s the text:

This one is interesting because with a Medusa-keyed Bifid cipher you can get “ONEWKFOLD“, whether this means anything or not I’m not sure just yet.  With a four-square cipher you can get the word “FONT” which normally wouldn’t be interesting but given the cryptological context of Kryptos maybe it is interesting.

If there was any point to try and analyze possible future directions it would be the keyed Bifid even then I’m fighting my natural skepticism.
