I love all of this.

Even though trying to put it all together- adjungo, abluo... it's giving me aegretudo. =)

But in a good, challenging way, you know: "The suspense is terrible! ...I hope it lasts."

I found a possible connection to Nazism... a yellow triangle- race defiler in Nazi concentration camp badges- and deaths-head, a Nazi army badge.

Also, since the writing on the John symbols ran up the hand instead of across, perhaps the plus-sign is actually a sideways four, referencing the delta which in turn references the concentration camp badges which relate to the 6655321 thing and the post alpha video of mass slaughter..

Giverny said...

Oh.. and symmetrical post names, methinks?

sara said...

wow.
nice!
why would this be about concentration camps though?
hmm.

Hmm.. this is interesting.. there's must be a reason the color of the screen and the hand and the symbol changes at the same time, its like he's trying to give us a more clear message hehe..

hm. so if thats a sideways 4 like you were suggesting giverny, would that make the 'dashes' 1's? what's up with the delta again...and the color change, this isn't making things clearer at all haha.

abluo 2, is it title 2 or is it still the same title but with a new addition (the delta). it still could be the same title and the color changed with the delta cause he just put a new clip into the old one

+ _ _ _ _ _ _ + _ _ _ _ ^ _ +
a _ _ _ _ _ _ a _ _ _ _ o _ a
15 letters, possibly more than one word, and we have 2 vowels.
the delta on the hand on the video switches to the left hand where all the other symbols are on the right hand. in the email he uses the left hand with verticle numbers and delta. maybe the delta signifies when the words break

Giverny said...

I noticed that in each of these hand videos, there's a time when the symbols switch without the hand closing. It happens in the middle of the first one, and at the beginning and in the middle of this one. It could mean '14'.. or not. I'm thinking not, but I'm just putting it out there.

dudepal2021 said...

i think the only time the symbol switches is when it was a + so the hand is open then it changes to the - so the hand closes

Giverny said...

The number 14 can be a reference to neo-nazism/white supremacy- see wikipedia article on fourteen words.

I may be going off on a tangent here with this Nazi thing.. is this making sense to anyone else?

dudepal2021 said...

i think you found a lot of connection with the nazism. i also saw a mention that that term of 14 is also commonly used with 88 for heil hitler. its a stretch on that part but there was also the 8 on the hand

sara said...

i can't get away from than darn delta symbol. why was so much emphasis put on it this time? i mean, the screen turned gold [or yellow?] and it was on a different hand. i can't figure out what to make of it, though. i'm trying to think of why it was placed where it was, like it was "+ - - - - delta" why was it number 5?? ahh.
just rambling. maybe someone can make something of it.

sara said...

oh and the hand in the picture with the series of numbers and the delta symbol...that hand was also a different color. hmmmm.

Cory said...

I completely agree with Dudepal... I think there's a real good connection with the nazi thing, but I don't think that the hand switching color and position in the video is inportant. I just think Josh is trying to show us the position of more letters in the +------+----^-+ thing... Kinda so we can try to fill in the blanks. So, we should focus on the nazi thing and figuring out the word(s).

PS--I made those posts where I deleted my own comments. They were repeats.

dudepal2021 said...

sorry giverny but i dont think there is any significane to the anonymous comments post. im sure he was just adjusting the settings on the blog, otherwise only registerd users could comment. the post was titled discuss, an invitation to everyone to talk about whats going on plus that post was only the 3rd post, too early for anyone to have known how much of a puzzle this was going to be.

Jeremy said...

I think the Nazi connection's really good. At first I thought you were just rambling, but because there's so many things that go with it perfectly, I definitely think you're on to something. Maybe the new album has a really big message on Nazism?

Also, I don't think that the +------+------+ +------+----^-+ have any major significance. Maybe they do, but they're definitely not letters. That would make all of the '-' the same letters. I'm pretty sure most everyone else has noticed this, but I'm going to point out that the + in every video have the lower left shaded, so they could very possibly be 4's, like someone mentioned.

Cory said...

Jeremy... (And everyone else...)

I am sure the +------+----^-+ is words or a word. Here's why...

When the hand is opening, it means that the letter has been revealed... Conversely, the hand closing means that it has not yet been revealed to us. So, by seeing that, we can determine that the "-"'s just mean there's a letter there that has not been revealed, and that's why the hand closes for each "-".

Am I right?

Cory said...

Oh, and I don't think the orientation of the numbers in the "john" thing is important... Unless someone proves me wrong.

dudepal2021 said...

tonight on the history channel theres some specials on hitler

Jon-Eric said...

would any of this tie into his book the spinal cord perception

Jon-Eric said...

could the 10 and 8 being circled refer to john 10:8 which says "All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them."

dudepal2021 said...

the password changed, (or am i just bad at typing). i couldnt figure out the new password without a new post, so i think josh is about to drop something big. new vid, new puzzle, new email

dudepal2021 said...
