Come in. Over. [lot02](rs): DMO Hamilton, this is RS001 Operator. Go Ahead. Over. [lot03](tx): Operator, Hamilton is requesting stream block verification. Over. [lot04](rs): Hamilton, this is Operator. Ten Four. Prepare for sync. Over. [lot05](tx): Operator, this is Hamilton. Standby. Over. [lot06](tx): ... [lot07](tx): Operator, this is Hamilton. Endpoint ready. Over. [lot08](rs): Hamilton, this is Operator. Checksum looks good, your fingerprint seems to have changed since the last transmission though. Please confirm and initiate retrust. Over. [lot09](tx): Operator, this is Hamilton. Affirmative. I transferred to Hamilton just yesterday and haven't had time to update my keys yet. Proceeding with handshake now. Over. [lot10](rs): Hamilton, this is Operator. No worries, I'll let you know when the update is done. Standby. Over. [lot11](rs): ... [lot12](rs): Dorothy is that you? [lot13](tx): Um, er, ... guess so. Who is asking? [lot14](rs): Dotty, this is Ludwig. [lot15](tx): Lu? No way. I thought you where ... what are you doing at operations? [lot16](rs): Well, you know sometimes things get ... complicated. [lot17](tx): Why do I get the feeling that you should have said dealing with people gets complicated? How is she doing? [lot18](rs): Better I guess, but ... you know her. [lot19](tx): So, operations, living the dream ha? [lot20](rs): It's not that bad. Having time to think about things is actually kind of great right now. Besides, the pay is alright and maybe I can save up, to finally get my own thing going. [lot21](tx): Take your time, but don't get lost in your thoughts. If you need some distraction, you should take a look at the data I just synced. This really might be something. [lot22](rs): Hmm, what is it? [lot23](tx): Remember those helix tests we ran at the collider? [lot24](rs): How could I've forgotten all those wasted months. We should have stopped trying to proof those pointless theories way before they split up the team. [lot25](tx): That's the thing. I think our work back then was neither wasted time nor pointless theories. This must sound a little bit weird but listen. We never figured out why the numbers always converged in a similar way, with the same jumbled up results at the end. But what if there wasn't really any way to derive a meaningful result. [lot26](rs): We always saw a decrease in entropy and never found repeating structures. You especially believed that our setup must have been flawed or we were dealing with a chaotic system. What made you change your mind? [lot27](tx): I didn't change my mind about the things you just said. Consider this though. What if our assumptions about the medium were all wrong? Maybe our concept of a data layer isn't really supposed to work like we thought. Could it be, that due to the way the system is structured, you'd need another layer to actually work on the data for decoding it? [lot28](rs): Well, sounds plausible but how would we access this additional layer? [lot29](tx): I don't think we can, at least not with the technology we've got going at the moment. Right now, we're stuck with our monkey brains. [lot30](rs): What do you mean? [lot31](tx): It's like a monkey typing away on a keyboard. Sure some letters will appear on the screen and in very rare cases, also words could form, but the monkey isn't able to derive meaning from it. The words are there, but no chance on decoding it. [lot32](rs): Fair enough. Point made. It's an interesting thought, I grant you that. But this feels like a dead end to me. You're saying even if your hunch turns out to be correct. We would never be able to use the system due to our lack of tools, so how can we establish a proof? [lot33](tx): There's no need to do this. I'm not interested in repeating what we did at the collider. [lot34](rs): I don't get it. What's the point in... [lot35](tx): Haven't had your coffee yet? [lot36](rs): Well honestly, I've got some not too shabby hangover from last night going on, so... [lot37](tx): That bad ha? Listen, spare some of whatever made your head spin and we'll have one together after my rotation at Hamilton. In the meantime get it together and imagine this. What if someone else also made the same observations like we did back then, but wasn't that keen on trying to fix something, that needn't to be fixed. [lot38](rs): Hmm... is there, ... I mean. If you don't care about, ... then there's always the possibility to. No you're kidding right? Come on, are you really making me believe, that someone used it as a binary encoding storage? [lot39](tx): Monkey won't read, but Monkey either sees stuff on the screen or doesn't. [lot40](rs): But this is one of the most inefficient ways how to do this. And why go through all that trouble with an ephemeral storage anyway? [lot41](tx): Someone found a way to make it persistent. [lot42](rs): What? [lot43](tx): Look at the timestamp. I marked this last week and when I came to Hamilton, it was still there. Lu, you need to have a look at the stuff I just handed in. When do you think processing will be finished? [lot44](rs): With the current schedule we've got going on, your block won't be pipelined before next week I'd assume. But I still got my own gear around, since the trip didn't happen. Just send me the dump again. [lot45](tx): Awesome! On the way. # =================================================================== DATA === # ``` 00000000: 116b 30fe 38fb be3a 2621 51b8 6c2e 8ba9 00000010: f7af cb83 888c 068d 5f18 5d3d 6dac 64ff 00000020: 6279 4868 3739 562b e67d 4927 936f 4212 00000030: f2c0 9382 af0a b4c3 d04d a8fe b628 7f27 00000040: 0ef9 a485 762d 1e00 d560 a9b6 c6ad 5254 00000050: e271 7fd1 9038 6ca1 6fd9 bc58 5617 9684 00000060: d893 d2aa 2009 88d0 c4bd c262 1215 d58b 00000070: 78b3 04bb 5885 63ff c86e e2c1 f745 7689 00000080: 0862 76d2 4013 9660 89dc 94c4 1e2f a50c 00000090: e7f2 bbaf 7935 e081 ee52 40bc 90cd e9ce 000000a0: 209f b326 0f26 a8bc 62c2 a984 3e3c 74d7 000000b0: 9600 9b1b 8aac 4f0e 952c d83a a69e 9972 000000c0: 86a8 9823 4c2a 5447 5368 4ca4 e229 a6ba 000000d0: b257 0bcc 3bca 6367 8dac 1c0e 2b2c 5bef 000000e0: 6865 6c6c 6f2c 2077 6f72 6c64 2120 7069 000000f0: 6e67 206d 6520 7669 6120 636f 736d 6963 00000100: 2e76 6f79 6167 6540 7961 6b62 6172 6265 00000110: 722e 6f72 678f e4c0 89c1 0b63 814f e76f 00000120: 3add f28e bec5 b6dd f561 b848 82c3 99d7 00000130: 574f 42f0 5bd6 2c7d 4bed 912c 02de 27c1 00000140: cfd0 fc80 45d8 6966 bbc3 26a4 602f 73a4 00000150: 486c 1b7c f563 2c46 6fd7 419a ad95 f3c8 00000160: 086e 5a8b 38ab 9a09 11b7 8268 60a0 3aa8 00000170: 3d2c 0f7f 5a70 381a 6104 df57 d372 2aa3 00000180: 0f41 f5f9 30bc f23e fcf0 80d0 16f7 0e8a 00000190: 357b 5b89 2994 d533 976b 8f19 3e83 77a9 000001a0: a0b5 8501 7788 7c51 2738 2da4 5560 4e8f 000001b0: bef5 b470 65be cd12 db27 a74c ebd4 abc0 000001c0: 8555 62c9 a964 38ab abaa 565a 62a1 75bb 000001d0: d7cf 1cbc b6ec 7fa2 f78c e8c1 7d3f 9ad9 000001e0: 0161 43ac 7b55 9e51 739e 6ee0 29e5 2560 000001f0: 00c9 fdf7 79b3 13ce fb53 70c6 74ca 4c1a ``` # ============================================================= TRANSCRIPT === # [lot46](rs): Alright, what am I looking at? [lot47](tx): To be honest, I don't have a real clue yet. But the entropy signature looks damn close to what we came up with at the collider. [lot48](rs): It kind of smells like tech they were working with in the old days back on earth. Know what? Let me do some digging. Maybe I can find something in the archives that looks similar to this. It will take some time though, the downlink on RS001 is kind of crowded lately. [lot49](tx): I'm not going anywhere soon here on Hamilton. Lu, I really appreciate that you're helping me out here. And what I said about the drink, ... I'm really looking forward to it. [lot50](rs): Me too. See you soon. RS001 Over. [lot51](tx): Bye. Hamilton Over and Out.
