This is the last of my efforts to elucidate how and why we fail at solving Kryptos.  I mean really, any more than 5 and I’d be nitpicking.

I would say this is the most important piece.

It’s certainly the simplest.

nosce te ipsum
Know thyself

It’s not as easy as you’d think and is perhaps the hardest to grasp conceptually.  I will say that the more time and effort you put into it, the more you’ll understand why I’ve suggested it and why I’ve listed it as means to avoid failure.

Consider it a challenge then…

After the pen has left the paper, the faculties of logic and analysis must begin in earnest.

Good luck.
