Richard Bean, who recently broke two well-known cryptograms, has received lots of media coverage in Australia. Especially, a few radio interviews he gave are worth listening.

Message B, a ciphertext left behind by British parapsychologist Robert Thouless, baffled codebreakers for over 70 years. Richard Bean from Brisbane, Australia, has now broken it.

In 1948, an anonymous codebreaker deciphered an encrypted message by British parapsychologist Robert Thouless. The solution is known. Can a reader find out how the successful attack worked?

British psychologist and parapsychologist Robert Thouless (1894-1984) published a short cryptogram. He intended to channel the key after his decease from the realm of the dead. So far, this experiment has failed. Thouless’ cryptogram is still unsolved.

Der Parapsychologe Robert Thouless wollte mithilfe der Kryptografie beweisen, dass es ein Leben nach  dem Tod gibt. Ich habe vor ein paar Jahren ein ähnliches Experiment gestartet.
