To stop the U-boats Enigma had to be broken. Enigma was the most advanced deciphering device of its time. Horizon: The Strange Life and Death of Dr Turing, BBC 1992
Bletchley Park was the headquarters of the British code-breaking effort ... Alan Turing was one of the first to arrive ... In 1944 he designed a speech enciphering machine codenamed Delilah. ibid.
His vision was of a computer and programming that could simulate mental processes. ibid.
Back in 1950 Turing was using the Manchester computer to explore a new interest he had discovered in biology and cell differentiation. ibid.
Five years ago Michael Drosnin sealed thee extraordinary predictions in an envelope and gave them to a top Manhattan lawyer for safe keeping. In 2003 he opened it. He says the predictions need not come true. They are a warning to the world to change its ways. The basis for it all is a code which he says has been found in the Bible. What makes it extraordinary is that it appears to be backed by scientific evidence. Michael Drosnin is not the first person to claim to have found hidden messages encoded in the Bible. Horizon: The Bible Code, BBC 2003
After two years Rips was released and allowed to emigrate. He arrived in Israel with a reputation as a man of unshakable integrity and a brilliant theoretical mathematician. It was now in Israel that Rips was introduced to the world of the Bible Codes. ibid.
One of the best mathematical minds in the world seemed to have found strong scientific evidence that there really are codes in the Bible that can see into the future. ibid.
Brendan McKay is an expert in Advanced Probability Theory. He has been investigating mathematical mysteries for almost thirty years. He decided to take up Drosnin’s challenge. He brought a copy of the one-hundred-and-fifty-year-old novel Moby Dick. And using a search program similar to Rips began to comb it for hidden messages. The results were at first glance remarkable. McKay has made it very clear: these are not statistically significant messages. All they show, he says, is that you can find things that can seem extraordinary ... If you look for long enough in a big enough text. ibid.
It’s a rather unlikely group of scientists. They’re experts in codes and code-breaking. Leading researchers in the baffling world of quantum physics. And they’ve built the most advanced computer in the universe. And together they are taking on one common enemy: hackers. Horizon: Defeating the Hackers ***** narrator Rupert Penry-Jones, Dr Franco Wong et al, BBC 2013
Megalithic monuments linked together by electromagnetic energy. Green historic ruins arranged across vast distances in straight lines. And advanced mathematics carved into landmarks more than five thousand years ago. Ancient Aliens s3e14: Aliens and the Secret Code, History 2011
Ancient Astronaut theories believe our ancestors purposely constructed their monuments on energy lines that when mapped and connected create a significant pattern. ibid.
In 1925 [Alfred] Watkins published The Old Straight Track, a book in which he proposed that man’s earliest monuments and megaliths were linked by a network of long straight tracks. ibid.
He [Da Vinci] wrote using codes and ciphers. Now new claims suggest a hidden heretical message in his greatest work. Could it reveal the true identity of the Mona Lisa? Ancient X Files I, National Geographic 2010
The letters L & S and the number 72. ibid.
Rips’ original experiment gave us odds of 62,500 to 1. When we did our experiment we had two lists – we had the sceptics’ list and we had the Rips’ list. The odds for the sceptics’ list turned out to be 2 to 1 against ... The Rips’ list we get odds of 2 to 3 ... There is absolutely no evidence at all – absolutely none – that there are hidden codes here. Dr Lynda White, Imperial College
When you look at the hidden messages encoded in paintings, in documents and even in churches across Europe, they do seem to tell a very different version of the Jesus story from the New Testament. Bruce Burgess, Bloodline
The German messages transmitted by the highly secret Enigma machine were discovered. The code was broken by the British Ultra system. The agonising decision that had to be made was when and when not to use this intelligence. Its use was never discovered. The Nazis never believed their deepest secrets could be read. Never realising Enigma was a broken weapon. World War II: The Complete History: The World Shall Hold Its Breath, Discovery 2000
One of the biggest brains at Bletchley was Alan Turing, often called the Father of Modern Computing. In 1950 he thought of an ingenious way of judging whether computers show some form of intelligence by devising a test ... Would it be possible to build a computer that was so intelligent and so good at having chats with humans, that you could be chatting to the machine and not be aware that you’re not actually talking to another person? He suggested by the year 2000 we would have cracked the problem. ibid.
A secret invention built here at Bletchley Park in rural England. Colossus: the most complex machine that had yet been built. Michael Mosley, The Story of Science: Power, Proof and Passion, BBC 2010
America’s greatest explorer was murdered carrying secret presidential codes? In 1809 Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark is the sitting governor in the Louisiana territory when he dies in Tennessee. Brad Meltzer’s Decoded s1e2: Secret Presidential Codes, History 2010
Where’s Jefferson been this whole time? How could he have just accepted Lewis killed himself with no questions asked? ibid.
Of the eighty images said to foretell our doom seven form a code specifying the time of the Apocalypse. Nostradamus Effect: Son of Nostradamus, History 2009
The number 666 may actually be a reference to the Greek name for the Emperor Nero. Decoding the Past: Doomsday 2012: The End of Days
Every barcode except for postal barcodes on this planet contains the number 666. Did you know that? Nick Franks, Satan’s Supermarket, cited The Illuminati II
The German forces were orchestrated by coded signals. Codes which if unlocked would put Britain and her Allies one vital step ahead of the enemy. The Man Who Cracked the Nazi Code, 2014
Among them eccentric mathematician Alan Turing. ibid.
This is a British mathematician called Bill Tutte. You won’t have heard of him but in 1943 he pulled off what many believe was the greatest intellectual feat of World War II. It shortened the war and saved millions of lives. Code-Breakers: Bletchley Park’s Lost Heroes, BBC 2011
This is a former GPO engineer called Tommy Flowers. In 1944 he turned Tutte’s mathematical ideas into the world’s first computer. He died in 1988. ibid.
They allowed Britain to break a top secret machine employed by Hitler to dictate the course of the war. This machine was not Enigma: it was something far more secret and significant. ibid.
How two men changed the world and then disappeared from history. ibid.
Bletchley is Britain’s fortress of secrets. ibid.
Bletchley Park’s code-breaking history began in 1939 with a tiny attic radio station hidden at the top of the house. ibid.
This is it: the machine Hitler had dreamed of – the Lorenz SZ40, or as the Allies called it, Tunny. ibid.
The world’s toughest code had been broken. Hitler’s secrets were laid bare and the course of the war was about to change. ibid.
The Russians forewarned and forearmed were waiting for them. ibid.
It was a mathematical and statistical attack on the coded messages. ibid.
The very devices they trusted to give them total security allowed the Allies to play Hitler like a fish on a line. ibid.
Already the true history of computing was being corrupted. (Code & Computer) ibid.
The story of Colossus was beginning to creep out. ibid.
Some of the documents dealing with the work of Tutte and Flowers are still classified. ibid.
In 1952 the greatest code breaker of all time [Alan Turing] who had played a critical role in saving Britain from the Nazis was in torment. He was also a recently convicted criminal. Cutting Edge: Britain’s Greatest Codebreaker, Channel 4 2011
He was also the visionary scientist that gave birth to the computer. ibid.
During his lifetime Turing’s achievements went unrecognised. Instead he was disgraced simply for being a homosexual. ibid.
During the War he had been the genius of Station X the secret code-breaking headquarters at Bletchley Park. ibid.
