As introduced in my last post (which has been updated with the English translation), tier3 of Doctor Rajlich’s journal/notes was a tricky puzzle to solve. It featured a large block of text translated into 10 different languages. I had spent a long time trying to create a method for encoding information within language that would be challenging enough to be the last level of Doc Raj’s notes. What I ultimately settled on was a correlation between languages and numbers. The first line of tier3, “Atthay which compte como chave binnen жизнь sono die praeclarus.“, served as the key to the puzzle. Each language from tier3 is represented in this line and it provides the digit-language correlation.

0 Pig Latin
1 English
2 French
3 Spanish
4 Dutch
5 Portuguese
6 Russian
7 Italian
8 German
9 Latin

So to access tier4 of Doc Raj’s notes, one must go through the entire block of text, determine the language of each word, and transcribe a set of digits. The key also provides another hint once translated to “That which counts as key in life is the best.” When read aloud, the key can be heard as “That which counts ASCII is best”. Grouping into sets of 2 or 3 digits accordingly:

57 57 49 32 105 115 32 99 111 110 116 114 111 108 108 101 100 32 98 121 32 112 115 121 99 104 101 115 32 116 104 97 116 32 73 32 104 97 118 101 32 105 115 111 108 97 116 101 100 32 116 111 32 116 104 111 115 101 32 114 101 102 101 114 114 101 100 32 116 111 32 97 115 32 68 97 108 101 44 32 84 104 101 32 82 101 118 44 32 111 110 101 32 104 101 32 119 104 105 115 112 101 114 115 32 97 115 32 86 97 101 114 101 44 32 97 110 100 32 116 104 101 32 111 114 105 103 105 110 97 108 32 103 97 114 98 97 103 101 32 99 111 108 108 101 99 116 111 114 46 32 84 104 101 121 32 97 114 101 32 110 111 116 32 116 114 117 108 121 32 116 104 101 32 112 101 114 115 111 110 97 108 105 116 105 101 115 32 111 102 32 116 104 101 32 112 114 111 103 114 97 109 32 115 116 114 117 99 116 117 114 101 115 32 104 101 32 97 115 115 105 109 105 108 97 116 101 100 44 32 98 117 116 32 108 111 103 105 99 32 112 114 111 99 101 115 115 101 115 32 104 101 32 104 97 115 32 100 101 118 101 108 111 112 101 100 32 114 101 112 114 101 115 101 110 116 105 110 103 32 116 104 101 32 114 101 99 111 118 101 114 101 100 32 99 111 100 101 46 32 57 57 49 32 115 101 101 109 115 32 100 114 105 118 101 110 32 119 105 116 104 32 116 104 101 32 99 108 97 115 115 105 102 105 99 97 116 105 111 110 32 111 102 32 116 104 101 32 112 115 121 99 104 111 108 111 103 121 32 111 102 32 104 117 109 97 110 115 32 97 110 100 32 101 120 105 108 101 115 44 32 98 111 116 104 32 105 110 32 116 104 101 32 115 121 115 116 101 109 32 97 110 100 32 111 117 116 46 32 65 108 115 111 44 32 104 101 32 105 115 32 100 101 118 111 116 101 100 32 116 111 32 116 104 101 32 99 111 108 108 101 99 116 105 111 110 32 111 102 32 116 104 105 110 103 115 32 116 104 97 116 32 119 111 117 108 100 32 111 116 104 101 114 119 105 115 101 32 103 111 32 116 111 32 119 97 115 116 101 44 32 97 108 116 104 111 117 103 104 32 104 105 115 32 100 101 102 105 110 105 116 105 111 110 32 111 102 32 147 119 97 115 116 101 148 32 97 112 112 101 97 114 115 32 116 111 32 98 101 32 98 114 111 97 100 101 114 32 116 104 97 110 32 116 104 101 32 110 111 114 109 97 108 32 99 111 110 115 101 110 115 117 115 46 32 57 57 49 32 97 118 111 105 100 115 32 100 101 108 101 116 105 111 110 32 98 121 32 116 104 101 32 109 97 105 110 116 97 105 110 105 110 103 32 111 102 32 97 32 110 101 116 119 111 114 107 32 111 102 32 112 114 111 103 114 97 109 115 32 116 104 97 116 32 102 111 114 109 115 32 97 32 99 111 108 108 101 99 116 105 118 101 32 99 111 110 115 99 105 111 117 115 110 101 115 115 32 116 104 114 111 117 103 104 32 116 104 101 32 115 117 109 32 111 102 32 105 116 115 32 105 110 100 105 118 105 100 117 97 108 32 99 97 112 97 98 105 108 105 116 105 101 115 46 32 84 104 101 115 101 32 112 114 111 103 114 97 109 115 32 97 114 101 32 115 117 112 112 108 101 109 101 110 116 101 100 32 98 121 32 100 97 116 97 32 110 111 100 101 115 32 119 104 105 99 104 32 115 116 111 114 101 32 98 117 108 107 115 32 111 102 32 104 105 115 32 103 97 116 104 101 114 101 100 32 100 97 116 97 46 32 73 32 104 97 118 101 32 98 101 101 110 32 119 111 114 107 105 110 103 32 116 111 32 116 114 97 99 101 32 116 104 101 109 32 119 105 116 104 32 69 109 105 108 121 146 115 32 116 119 105 110 115 46 32 79 110 101 32 104 105 100 100 101 110 32 105 110 32 116 104 101 32 98 101 103 105 110 110 105 110 103 44 32 111 110 101 32 104 105 100 100 101 110 32 105 110 32 116 104 101 32 101 110 100 46 32 73 116 32 119 105 108 108 32 116 97 107 101 32 98 111 116 104 32 116 111 32 114 101 99 111 118 101 114 32 97 110 121 32 100 97 116 97 46 32 89 111 117 32 109 117 115 116 32 117 110 100 101 114 115 116 97 110 100 32 73 32 104 105 100 32 116 104 101 109 32 115 111 32 111 110 108 121 32 97 32 109 105 110 100 32 119 105 115 101 32 101 110 111 117 103 104 32 116 111 32 117 115 101 32 116 104 101 109 32 99 111 117 108 100 32 100 111 32 115 111 46 32 104 116 116 112 58 47 47 119 119 119 46 48 49 109 97 105 110 102 114 97 109 101 46 99 111 109 47 98 113 49 52 50 112 47 82 97 106 108 105 99 104 47 112 97 109 101 108 97 46 104 116 109 108

ASCII to Text gives the final message of tier4:

991 is controlled by psyches that I have isolated to those referred to as Dale, The Rev, one he whispers as Vaere, and the original garbage collector. They are not truly the personalities of the program structures he assimilated, but logic processes he has developed representing the recovered code. 991 seems driven with the classification of the psychology of humans and exiles, both in the system and out. Also, he is devoted to the collection of things that would otherwise go to waste, although his definition of “waste” appears to be broader than the normal consensus. 991 avoids deletion by the maintaining of a network of programs that forms a collective consciousness through the sum of its individual capabilities. These programs are supplemented by data nodes which store bulks of his gathered data. I have been working to trace them with Emily’s twins. One hidden in the beginning, one hidden in the end. It will take both to recover any data. You must understand I hid them so only a mind wise enough to use them could do so. http://www.01mainframe.com/bq142p/Rajlich/pamela.html

This gave players access to the second of Doc Raj’s “children”, Pamela, which could be used to locate 991’s data nodes and will be covered in the next post, Rajlich’s Research: The Puzzles End.

  1. Hey i was wondering, i am curently working on the wikia for the matrix, which includes the matrix online also, do you have an image of Dr Rajlich and the event surrounding him please? is he also a bluepill?
