Jim and John are discussing >the binary code notes etc The Earthfiles site recently published five pages of Penniston's download. Photos of the notebook pages show the handwritten 1's and 0's, along with the translation into characters. http://tinyurl.com/34mmvcy The translation appears difficult to justify. For example, the interpretation starts out using 8-bit characters, then switches to 7-bit characters, then back to 8-bit characters. Doing this switch allows characters to appear that are interpreted to be latitude and longitude. The characters are 520942532N and 13131269W. In the above translation taken from the Ancient Aliens video, the numbers are interpreted as concatenated degrees, minutes and seconds. In the Earthfiles article, decimal points were inserted to make 52.0942532N and 1.3131269W. The coordinates could just as well have been something like 5.20942532N and 131.31269W since the decimal points were invented. Perhaps the decoders of the message assumed that Penniston had made transcription errors that should be corrected if possible. So they felt entitled to make arbitrary choices until they got something that looked meaningful, i.e., the ambiguous number sequences similar to latitude and longitude. When the entire sequence is treated as a string of 8-bit ascii characters (i.e., no switching to 7-bit ascii), we get the same initial 20 characters. But there is nothing following that can be understood as earth coordinates or complete words. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
