There is an article that was published on November 20, 2014 in the New York Times by John Schwartz. The article is about an interview with Mr. James Sanborn (Jim) the creator of Kryptos.  I want you to read the following excerpt from that article;

“But still, no solution. So Mr. Sanborn, now 69, said, ‘I figured maybe I should be a little more specific.’
He was designing the project, he further explained, when the Berlin Wall fell, and ‘there’s no doubt I was influenced by all that was going on simultaneously.’ With the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall, he said, he thought it was worth returning to the topic.”

The keyword from that article is “simultaneously.”  Jim was designing Kryptos when the Berlin Wall fell, and he was influenced by all that was going on simultaneously.  What simultaneously occurred when the Berlin Wall fell?  I’ll answer that in a minute.
First off, back in 2014 I believe an assumption was created when Jim released the clue BERLIN that many of you have come to believe as fact, and the assumption is that BERLINCLOCK means “Berlin Clock” as in the “Berlin Set Theory Clock.”  Well, I am here to tell you that is more than likely incorrect.

I have identified the real clock. It is the clock we now refer to as the “BERLIN PEACE CLOCK,” which was unveiled at an art show in Berlin on November 9, 1989 at 6.57PM. When the clock’s pendulum was dropped at 6.57PM, an official from East Germany announced that the Berlin Wall will be taken down. Both separate events occurred simultaneously.  Now get this, the inscription on the clock says; “Time Bursts All Walls Asunder”. Asunder meaning “apart.” Now if that story is not deserving enough to be the Kryptos BERLIN CLOCK, than I have no idea what else it could be.  

 Now check this out
The K2 grid coordinates are:

1. 38 57 6.5N, 77 8 44W

2. 3857|6.57|7844

6.57: the time that the pendulum was dropped, and the time it was announced that the wall was coming down.

7844: I found that the distance in kilometers from DC to Moscow according to one source is 7,844km

3857: I’m not sure what this means, but I do know that on 3/8/57 the Soviets tested a nuke.

    Totally brilliant in thought process and conclusions.
    If you are still interested in KRYPTOS,please contact me.
    I have.. enough “more” for “someone” to now totally solve this.
    It has stood for long enough.

    • Wow, thank you for taking the time to comment. I did not realize someone actually read what I had written. Your the first person to comment, which means I will never forget you. I am sorry for the late response. After my last post on here I decided to give up on this page and spend my time working on more productive things. Perhaps now I may start writing again.

      I agree it has stood for long enough.

        I just wanted to comment on that and wanted to say I came up with the same solution to the Berlin clock theory. which I also think I may of solved more of the text through comments Jim made about how to crack the last 97 characters. I’m not completely competent that I’m on the right track but I feel it may well be true, seeing as this post confirmed what I picked out from his qouations. I’ll keep in touch and let you know as I progress.

      • Sounds great. Keep me posted if you find anything new, and I’ll have a look at it if you want.

        Hi..sorry for MY late reply!! I believe I have enough on the Kryptos,that were I to post what I have found,then someone would solve it.Well..I will not do that.I have the info,but the riddle still needs solving.but if you would consider that we join forces then we could actually crack this code!!Thank you for your kind response,and I hope to hear from you soon.
        Kindest Regards – W

    It seems strange that nothing I have read(thus far) about Kryptos’ 4th section has looked at the larger picture with respect to the “clues” Berlin & Clock and considered that perhaps the letters of these “clues” may be parts of other words or merely a coincidence of letter placement forming unintended words on a wheel cipher. I’m no cryptologist but I read a book on it once:)


    • Yes that makes sense to me. I think Jim Sanborn is to blame for that, because in past comments he connected those dots by suggesting the text refers to an actual Berlin Clock; however, he left it open to interpretation for which Berlin Clock that may be. It could be an elaborate ploy to fool everyone. Have you looked at my other findings about J Edgar Hoover? I think this find is very significant. I just don’t know in which way yet.
