.:L:.I:.O:.N:. 777 Part 3: Descending “Deeper”

So this whole puzzle thing has intrigued me lately, more than I thought it would. I decided to take a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole, and see what I could uncover. If you start at 7777777.ga, you’ll see this:

7777777ga_edited

I’ve been chosen to save the world? I’m flattered, really. Maybe I’m the Avatar, or something. Now, it’s worth noting that on most of these sites, there are links at the bottom of the homepage that will take you to other sites, which are supposedly the different “levels.”

The next site is called 13377331.gq, or “Master of the Philosopher Stone.” It, too, contains a series of puzzles (or at least images that appear to be puzzles). For example, there’s a poem at the beginning:

Between the Beehive and Pyramid

X marks the spot.

 The Treasure of GOLD follows.

Be Careful of Pirates ahead.

13377331gq_edited

Once again, I followed it to the end of the site, and sure enough, there was a link: 3301337. Logically, I clicked that. This continued for quite some time, and I don’t know if you want to see all the sites, but I was interested to find out what was at the end of the “path,” so to speak. It was interesting to note that this particular site had some “alien”-related stuff on it (not that I was looking for that). Supposedly it was instructions on how to build a time machine – sounds like the stuff of sci-fi, if you ask me.

alien_1

Some of the messages were rather amusing, too. One site had a picture of what looked like an A.I. bot, called “Ariana.” I assumed this was a play on the whole “Marianas Web” with an A.I. at the deepest level, or something like that:

ariana_edited

Ariana, don’t worry about me – I’m not dangerous! Anyhow, I kept progressing through the so-called “levels,” and eventually got to one called GGGBBBLLL, which looked like this:

giant_eyeball_edited.png

The text included these lines:

Since you are becoming such a bright light bulb

I will tell you the rest of the 1337Web is easy to get to

and you are on the home stretch to all the secret info.

Oddly enough, the link to the next “site” appeared to be broken. I don’t know if that was on purpose, or if the creator of these sites just hadn’t finished them yet. Well…what’s the next step then?

Anyhow, Order of Anarchy, thanks for leading me down this wacky rabbit hole. It’s been a fun trip. Is there more to check out?

EDIT: I’m told that there is, in fact! If I “get there,” I’ll write a new post.

.:L:.I:.O:.N:. 777: Further Exploration

When I first started checking out this LION 777 site, I had assumed it was a scam of some kind, but it appears that there’s more to it than that. (I guess I need to break out of that cynical mindset.) I’m still a bit skeptical, however, given some of the information they talk about.

I don’t know for sure, but it may actually be an internet-based secret society, along the lines of Cicada – don’t quote me on that, though.

Quoting the site itself, “L:.I:.O:.N:. is a Puzzle-Game.” OK, so we’ve established that. If I go by what the site says, the creators of the puzzle-game are this group called Order of Anarchy (OA).

For the curious, here’s Order of Anarchy’s official site: Order Of Anarchy – Enlighten. Overthrow Chaos. Empower.

order_of_anarchy.png

Like the mysterious Cicada 3301 (if that’s even their real name), OA only gives bits and pieces of information about who they are and what they stand for, but if you put it all together, you can get a pretty good picture.

On their site, there is a brief “FAQ” of sorts, on which it says, “Who are we?” Their answer is “A [sic] Order of family and friends who play and create puzzles and games.” On this same page, they actually list a contact email address, which is orderofanarchy@gmail.com. Feel free to email them with more questions, I guess!

Here’s some other information that they list:

codename_omega_alpha

If you want to see the whole thing, just the visit the site. I’m not entirely sure what to make of it anymore, but it appears that this site is a hub for a larger organization with several sub-organizations underneath it.

Definitely going to check this out some more…

 

LION 777: A Strange Puzzle?

You all know I love this sort of thing, don’t you? I received a comment on one of my earlier posts, Exposing A Scam: V3RDAD with a link to the site .:L:.I:.O:.N:. 7 7 7 | Order of Anarchy, which initially looked like a Cicada 3301-ish secret society.

cropped-ICARUSSSS-1-2

So it was clear they wanted me to “come hither.” Fine, then – I’ll give it a look. The site supposedly belongs to a group called Order of Anarchy (OA), and the landing page has the picture above as a background, with several menu options on top. If you scroll down, you’ll see this:

Screenshot from 2018-01-04 19-21-54

The “poem” there reads:

First you must find a Tree
Once you find the tree decode the secret message.
You will be given more hints along the way.
Nothing is hidden anymore
The golden Scarab holds a key.
Enlightenment is ahead.

J777.

Below this, it reads:

Where the Tree is

7777777.ga

Naturally, I followed this to the link at 7777777.ga, which had (of course) more puzzles, one of which appeared to be a rebus. I can reproduce that for you here, my readers, if you’d like to take a crack at it (though I have some thoughts of my own):

So, what do I make of all this? Well, I can tell you a few things about the symbols above. The first one, obviously, is the Cicada 3301 logo. Do I think this is one of their puzzles? No. The second is the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

The third (the clock), reads 2:37. 237, according to my research, is an “angel number,” e as is 1337 (at the end of the message). According to the blog ANGEL NUMBERS – Joanne Sacred Scribes: ANGEL NUMBER 237, “Angel Number 237 is a message to pay special attention to your dreams, daydreams, visions, recurring thoughts and feelings.” As for 1337, “Angel Number 1337 is a message from your angels that you are being commended and applauded for your efforts as your successes are inspiring and uplifting and and you are helping and teaching others by being a positive example for others to follow.”

I don’t know for certain if these two things are related, but it seems odd that the LION site would attach some significance to both of these numbers, and that they would also be listed as “angel numbers.”

The door with the three question marks is an image taken from 777 and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley, so does that mean that this site borrows heavily from Crowley’s ideas? Meanwhile, the symbol with the eagles is a Masonic symbol, and the Latin phrase Deus Meumque Jus means “God and my right,” which is a motto of theirs. Below that, the squid symbol is taken from The Secret Science Club, an art center in Brooklyn (except that they’ve replaced it with “7th Prime”). And finally, underneath that is the logo for Skull and Bones, a secret society from Yale.

Anyhow, how are all these things connected? Is it just mumbo-jumbo? At first glance, it appears that someone has taken the symbols and mottos of various secret societies and jumbled them together.

Perhaps, as a whole, it’s supposed to form some greater message, but I haven’t figured that out yet. Any further thoughts on this?

 

“Cicada 3301” Request!

sevensexposed

So, a reader made a request on my previous post that I write about the mysterious “Cicada 3301” group (or other such groups).

While I do not know much about the “official” group, from what I gather, they are a secret society searching for enlightenment and the meaning of life, and they attempt to find this path through mathematics, physics, steganography, and other academic disciplines. I don’t think they have anything to do with more well known organizations, like the CIA, FBI, or NSA, even though some people have speculated about this connection.

The site that I thought was their official site used to hint at what the organization was about, and this is how I gathered that they were more spiritual than people may have realized.

What I figured out was that “3301” was not really the name of the group, so much as the person(?) that started it, and revealed the texts to the others (in a way, it’s like their “god” or spiritual guide). These texts would be the Liber Primus and the Gematria Primus, which the author wrote in runes and symbols:

3UmNme4

Nonetheless, the reason that they started sharing the puzzles and mysteries with the world was that they really did want to recruit new members, but didn’t want just anyone to join – they were looking for people who were serious, highly intelligent, and skilled in many academic fields. And presumably, some people did actually pass the tests, although they probably never told anyone publicly about it.

The Uncovering Cicada Wiki, though not affiliated with the group directly, does have some intriguing information about the past puzzles, and about what Cicada is.

Interesting Updates

So, the site that I was referring to above (cicada3301) no longer has the wiki-like structure that it used to. I may be a little late to the party, but what now appears if you visit the site is this message:

turnoffjavascript

It says “Make me a favor, please – Turn off javascript.” Curious, I turned off JavaScript, and then a hidden message appeared (which I did not expect):

newpuzzle

I know that’s difficult to read, so I’ll spell it out here:

Hello
2+5+1 = 8
25*13=325
15,31,3301
sqrt(324)=18
360360/7=51480
360360/8=45045
2513/800=3.14125

APOC SCAE
ALYPSE VERY
SOCIETY CRAZY
CATVS SUN MUSIC
31°46’38.49″N

Since I just came across this, I haven’t had time to solve the puzzle yet, but there’s a definite significance to the numbers, obviously. Even if people have seen this link before, I thought I’d take a crack at the puzzle. In particular, this message has something to do with the number 18, and whatever that may symbolize.

I’ll illustrate: the square root of 324 is 18. 360,360 divided by 7 is 51,480 (as they state). The digits of 51,480, when added up, equal 18. The digits of 45,045, when added up, also equal 18. And obviously, 3.14125 are the first few digits of pi, but there’s more to it than this.

So what else does the number 18 signify? In Hebrew (where letters also stand for numbers), it is the symbol of life: chai.

150px-Hebrew_Chai_Symbol.svg

Likewise, in China, 18 is associated with someone who will have great success and prosper. Could there be a connection? Perhaps!

There is also a correlation between 180 and π, in that to convert radians to degrees, you multiply by 180 over π: Convert from Radians to Degrees pi/18 Is this at all related, or is it reading too much into what’s there?

Perhaps someone who’s more experienced with steganography than I can take this a little further, so I intend to share this around.

And of course, some others have been working on this before me, if you want more information:

Cicada 3301 working out

Ideone.com – GFeI03 – Online Java Compiler and Debugging Tool (someone was analyzing the code of the page with this message)

What happened? r/cicada

VK.com – Utopia Show

There’s also a site which someone created not too long ago that seems to be associated with Cicada, although I have not verified this – http://www.1711141131131.xyz/. The former URL of this site was http://sevens.exposed, which now redirects to the new URL. At various times, this site has also shown different puzzles and encoded messages, similar to the ones that Cicada has posted. (Although, as the group themselves stated, “Beware false paths.”)

sevensexposed2

Presently, it shows a series of animated messages, which change from symbols to letters. The last three appear to be anagrams:

Ana,

there will come a time

when you will decide

between yourself and your loved ones.

when it comes,

walk the path your peers would not.

and triumph in the victory that you feel in your heart.

A Cab Cede Ether Summer Fruit

A Bash Steg Mr Hemmer Prate

Weighted Jetport Moth

 

What does it all mean? Well, I did take a look at the phrase: “A Cab Cede Ether Summer Fruit,” and noticed that you can get “The Cicada” from some of the letters, but this may just be a coincidence. And I figured “Ana” was a reference to anagrams.

If you have further knowledge, feel free to leave a comment or an idea. That’s always welcome. Due to the fact that it used to be called “sevens.exposed,” I had initially thought that the site had been made by someone who was anti-Cicada.

I’ll elaborate on this in some future posts.

Cicada 3301 Clues or “False Paths”? (Debunked)

UPDATE: Apparently these messages are not “Cicada” clues.  So the question becomes: what do they mean, then?  Does anyone know for sure?

I received another message that may or may not relate to the current Cicada puzzle.  As I’d said in a previous post, I’m relatively new to all this, so I don’t have any insider information, and this may just be a red herring.

Nonetheless, I thought I’d share it anyway.  The link is here: 4048.

At that particular URL (the domain of which is hosted in the Pitcairn Islands) are a set of (presumably) latitude and longitude coordinates:

cicada_clue+maybe

I know the picture looks kind of small, so here they are in a slightly larger font:

63.445963, 10.899455

40.755219, -73.987406

40.349589, -79.995874

The first set of coordinates corresponds to a train station in Hell (Norway, that is).  It probably looks like this:

tumblr_lnvoh0KRid1qhnvqno1_500

The second set corresponds to a place at (or near) the corner of W 41st St. and 7th Ave. in Manhattan.

The third set corresponds t0 a place at (or near) the corner of Curry Rd. and Rosewood Dr. in Pittsburgh, PA.

So, if this set of clues is indeed genuine, then my best guess is that at each of these coordinates, you’ll find one of the next three clues.

Do any of my readers happen to live in Hell, Norway, Manhattan, or Pittsburgh?  If so, could you check out those locations and let me know what you find?

Since, apparently, these aren’t real Cicada clues, I would like to know what they mean, if anything.  I’m intrigued to know what you discover.  Thank you.
