    Oh boy …

    So, on the flash drive are two files, a photo of Addison and ~four, titled “Peace”.

    – Save this file to your computer, and use an EXIF reader, or rename it from .jpg to .txt and there is a message from ~four…


    !!!
    (@thegilded and @addisonborn found this while I was uploading this next part of this story … )

    There is also an audio file, “NEWMATH.wav” which I’ve uploaded here:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/rfx8lqikzs7br47/NEWMATH.wav?dl=0

    Tension know I’ve been an audio engineer / dogs body for more than 20 years, and I could immediately hear data was hidden in the file. So, threw it into a spectrogram analyzer, and voila:

    … I’m pretty | blown away | by this …

    Thank you Addison, ~four, Tension.

      That spectrogram… crazy. Could four turn into 2 when III’s out of the picture? is III going to take a piece of four for the transformation? Or is it less literal? Four is creating 2 by removing III?

      No, the file as I received it was “PEACE.jpg”.

      I think the 480 originally referred to the resolution of the picture (pretty low, for these days)

    The 4-3=2 seems to mean, possibly, that @gatekeeper4 is gonna take @gatekeeper3 out of power and replace 3 with a new leader, which will be our Gatekeeper2. Could that be Addison maybe??

    In addition to the exif extraction did you open the pictures as txt files @111error? Or open in any steganography programs? I’d do it and check myself, but I thing image hosting websites delete the metadata and add their own.

    Great sleuthing! I wonder how soon GK2 will appear. What do you think about the 4 yellow roses? Four from GK4? What about the significance of the color? Proflowers says yellow is for friendship and joy.

      But you were correct, and that’s more important than lurking here all day to post first, and risking your job like the rest of us! 😉

      Yes, four yellow roses – the same as someone posted to Tension’s Facebook yesterday.

      I don’t know how long you’ve been following the menagerie of Tension plot lines, but them being ‘friendship and joy’, and from Addison and ~four, meant the world to me. Many feelz.

      Also, @toyintoyin, yellow was the color of the roses Addison gave to many of us at the infamous “mixer” event that was disrupted by her father.

    Just thought of something. With the secret message in the .wav, it makes me think of 242 again (4-3=2). I know 242 has significance already, but what if this is something more that Four is using. For example, the 4 is surrounded (or guarded/protected by 2). Maybe Four is surrounding herself by 2 others? She has someone on each side of her in preparation to come back? Or maybe, she is somehow “splitting” the Gatekeeper roll with Addison and both of them become 2…which make up Four.

    Yes, I know how it sounds haha

      yeah, I can’t remember what spurred it, but I had a similar thought about 2 4 2. the twos surrounding gatekeeper four.

      maybe it is a type of holy trinity thing. where the three pieces all represent God in various forms.

      Uh oh, here comes voltron thoughts again!

    Just realized no one brought up anything about the name of the jpeg…”Peace”.

    Seems like an odd thing to name a picture based on what’s currently happening with III and Four. It seems like they’re going to war.

    Possible meanings:
    Since the image is of Addison, maybe she’s at “peace”. Her face does look kind of…blank?
    Four is asking us for “peace” – As in, stop attacking III, she has a plan in place?
    Someone is saying “peace” as in “Peace out!” and maybe Addison is leaving? Could that go along with “I’m ready”?

    I know Morgan is sure that this is her, but I seem to remember her looking a little bit different at the mixer. I didn’t really have a long conversation with her, but this image looks…different. Thinner/longer face perhaps? Can anyone else that was at the mixer give their thoughts?

      #alwaysmyscribe Well hello Mike, and ZOMG, it’s that conversation we just agreed to have on here..
      I noticed the file name when I opened the USB stick, but then I got diverted by the hidden messages. You’re absolutely right to revisit this.

      Do you remember me saying that when Addison called me recently, she seemed calmer than any other time we’d spoken? Her face reflects what I was describing. She’s not as sad as we saw at the mixer, but she’s also not as animated as I’d previously seen her. This is also the first time we’ve seen her without make up, she does look like she’s gone through some kind of change.

      Since ~Four is now getting vocal again, I don’t think the filename refers to a goodbye, but you may have a point with it either meaning they are peaceful, and / or we should let them carry out their plan without having to wade through fires people are setting here.

      ~Four probably wants to set those fires herself.

      @mike I could be totally off but another interpretation could be that four is giving Addison to BoS as a peace offering. Some have speculated that 3 is BoS and is destroying the OOA from within. We know from @reaton hijacking meeting that BoS (Correct me if I am wrong. Going off memory from the podcast) was real interested in getting Addison out of the OOA whether the two were her parents or not. Is it possible 4 thinks 3 is BoS and could be offering Addison as a peace offering?

      @111error – Makes sense, I hope it’s not a goodbye. She’s way too important to everyone involved!

      @lukasrl – I like that theory too! This could go so many ways!

      I took the picture title of peace to mean that 4-3=2 will equal peace in the OOA. that Addison represents peace. also, that she is at peace with whatever decisions she has made.

      however, this being the tension experience, I can’t believe that we are nearing any kind of actual peace.

      as for her appearance in the photo, I can’t be sure this is the same girl we saw at the mixer, but I am nearly 100% sure this is the same girl who has been in the periscope videos.
      I’m pretty sure they would want to keep continuity with using the same person and it could be as simple as what @111error is saying, her hair and make up are different. Sometimes even the angle or the camera lens can change someone’s appearance.

      a darker theory would be that the OOA indeed killed/removed the old Addison and swapped her with a similar looking person hoping that we wouldn’t notice.

    Forgive my ignorance, and I know much of this is in the timeline…but could someone give me a quick primer on GK2, 3, 4 and BoS?

    • #21381

      Before the Overseer, before Samson, before the OSDM, we the Aspirants and Disciples were led by figureheads that the OOA referred to as the Gatekeepers. They taught us the teachings of the OOA, and guided us on our journey.

      The first Gatekeeper was Gatekeeper 5 or GK5 for short. He was a stoic, emotionless near father figure. Next we had GK4, who was a passionate woman who took a woman who was at the time a shy Attendant One, Addison, under her wing. Addison later went on to kill GK4. We then had GK3 who was… intense. Buz had the duty and honor of killing him, leaving us with GK2, a newly raised Addison. She stepped down from that post in order to become the Overseer.

      The BoS is an organization comprised of rebels, ex-OOA members, and people who believe the OOA to be corrupt. Short for the Brothers of Seraph, arguably the most famous member went by the name Sentinel. The BoS maintains an active community of members that are on this board even now.

      Thank you. Now that there is an Oracle, does this mean there is a direct line to Anoch?

      One other question:

      Is Samson afraid of Thomas Barrow because of the subjective existential threat he may present to OOA, or
      Is Samson protecting The Overseer because he presents an objective threat to her?

    • #21383

      Assuming that we accept that there actually are/were Oracles that were found during the Ascension process, that implies that there is now a/some direct link(s) to Anoch. Although I cannot stress enough that I’m still not sure about a true Oracle having been found.

      If Samson is afraid of Mr. Barrow, it seems likely that he is because Thomas represents a link to Addison’s past, where Samson only wants the Overseer to focus on her future. Thomas may possibly represent a way to undermine Samson’s plan with the Overseer. Thomas Barrow is Addison Barrow’s father. No matter what else, I would doubt very much that he presents an objective threat to her, as he only wants her back.

      I don’t wish to be indelicate, but is it possible that Addison suffered at the hands of her father at some point…

    • #21387

      While possible, I do not believe that we currently have any reason to suspect as much. Pre-Overseer Addison and her journal are what we have to go off of, as well has first hand meetings that some members had with Mr. and Mrs. Barrow to use as character references.

      All strongly suggest a loving family who wanted their little girl back.
