They've begun to adjust, but he is dreaming again.

This leads to an audio file. View the sepectrogram using a software package such as audacity to reveal another base 64 code.

I have not written this down right because the URL i get pack doesn't lead me to a valid YouTube channel name.

When I have more time I'll go back and see where I made my mistake transcribing the base 64. Maybe someone else can fix my error in the mean time.

OK I found my mistake when transcribing the base 64.

Okay so iv'e snooped a bit around his channel.
In the about section:

Psithuris was once found in a boat that washed up on some nameless shore. When roused from his slumber he was asked of where he had been; he replied with a single word “Adrift”. Those who found him continued to pester; “What of your mother and your family? Did you not think they would be anxious?” He then said the following “I know not of them while adrift, and they know not of me. At times [while adrift] the sky would become my own eye; big enough to see all of the stars at night, and every cloud during the day. When I would sleep, my mind would be whisked away to places neither you, nor I have seen before. Places where the wind in the trees sounds as loud as the thundering of a freight train. Places where the color of fall leaves are all together vibrant and dull. These are the places that I intend to take myself; and you as well if you are willing to take my hand. Although, I must caution you; my hands have become abrasive after all these years and are no longer a joy to hold onto."

On the "Rouse" video:

I worry I've been adrift for so long that my eyes won't readjust. My hands have become calloused and my head has become heavy from navigating these dark seas. I am forever changed. I am now to be addressed as Psithuris Fall; the wind through the trees.

On the "Recollecting" video:

My eyes have begun to adjust slightly. I can see where certain scars are still stitching themselves up.

On the "Dream Sequence No. 1" video:

"When I would sleep, my mind would be whisked away to places neither you, nor I have seen before. Places where the wind in the trees sounds as loud as the thundering of a freight train. Places where the color of fall leaves are all together vibrant and dull."

His channel photo looks like an x-ray of some kind.

Any ideas?

OK so brand new video out entitled "Dream Sequence 2". In it we can see children playing on what appears to be a beach some time in the past as it is in black and white.

The description, however, is the most important part. At the top it reads:

During my childhood I would often find myself reproached for my distance. My father forgot of me for two years because of my apathy; until circumstance returned him to the doorstep of my life. My dreams often return me to this period of alienation.

The next few lines have four codes:

aHR0cHM6Ly9nb28uZ2wvWTRrdlhr

01000001 00100000 00111101 00100000 00110001 00110001

19 4 // 7 11 3 // 24 25 4 // 5 24 4 19 22 // 19 // 26 5 3 18 15 14 // 25 16 16 // 25 16 // 3 18 25 2 15 // 4 18 11 4 // 19 // 7 11 3 // 11 12 22 15 // 4 25 // 14 19 17 // 11 // 3 23 11 22 22 // 18 25 22 15 // 4 18 11 4 // 19 //  16 19 4 // 19 24 3 19 14 15 // 25 16 // 13 25 23 16 25 2 4 11 12 22 9 //

Z29vLmdsL1IyR1BNYQ==

Decoding the binary leaves you with "A = 11".

Decoding the numbers leaves you with a long string of letters "S D // G K C // X Y D // E X D S V // S // Z E C R O N // Y P P // Y P // C R Y B O // D R K D // S // G K C // K L V O // D Y // N S Q // K // C W K V V // R Y V O // D R K D // S // P S D // S X C S N O // Y P // M Y W P Y B D K L V I //"
While trying to decode this further, one of the first I tried was a Caesar Cipher shift. Flicking through the numbers on the shift, at 17 along I found the decrypted message "i t // w a s // n o t // u n t i l // i // p u s h e d // o f f // o f // s h o r e // t h a t // i // w a s // a b l e // t o // d i g // a // s m a l l // h o l e // t h a t // i // f i t // i n s i d e // o f // c o m f o r t a b l y //"

When decoding lines 1 and 4 I used a Base64 decoder that, when put together, gave me a link- https://goo.gl/Y4kvXkgoo.gl/R2GPMa. On trying it I found they were two separate links the first leading to "https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZT0547ZWKMA2nGPqD5XxwJxw5LCdbDYSanV", a site which gives you a pdf titled "tool.pdf" on which there is a shift cipher decoder. The second leads to "https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZ91jf7ZYJEWlESF104Fkx8ztmazFJVr6QV7" which gives you a png image entitled "contact.png".


On contact.png there appears to be an @gmail.com email address at the end. I've removed some of the noise to make it easier to use so here is my google drive share link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/13VAZrqVePp-R8UYltg-sRN-9b7ghfI9E/view?usp=sharing

Also at the end of the "Rouse" video there is what seems to be another spectrogram or possibly the same. I don't have audacity so I'll need someone else to do it.

Hope this helps!

Nice work CEa5ArC1Ph3R!. I can't access those links from work. Are you able to post the pdf and png files here?
I looked at the spectrogram of the audio in the video and didn't see any messages encoded in it.

I extracted the audio from the Rouse video to investigate the strange noises starting at about 58 seconds in. I thought it might be Morse code. It turned out it was a spectrogram that said PSITHURIS HAS EYES, THEY ARE BEGINNING TO OPEN.

Hey Nick,

I uploaded the images to imgbb, hopefully you can see them now. If you can't I can try again a different way.



Enhanced "contact" image



Original "contact" image



"Tool" pdf screenshot

Tool looks like a hint that was supposed to point towards the Caesar Cipher decryption.

Good work on the spectogram btw!

Someone contacted me directly. This should only be done through the given contact address.

Have patience.

Speaking has become difficult.

I still can't see the files. I'll have a look when I get home.
