The updated version of the code produces a plaintext of “GG”, whilst the other get’s “GG, P” and then some unknown characters.
There are two stages to decoding this, firstly you need to look at the numbers themselves:
I tried to add a clue with the working version by making the numbers a little larger and slightly silly, to make you see that it’s no about them at all, instead it’s about what they are: odd or even.
From here, you change all the even numbers to a “0″ and all the odd numbers to a “1″. Remove all the addition signs too, they were just a red herring. This binary number can then be translated using an online translator, to get the plain-text.
This is the major flaw in the system, there is no way to indicate which way around the numbers should go. For example, there’s no sign of showing that even numbers go to 0, and odd to 1. Whilst this isn’t strictly an issue, it is but there’s no much anyone could do with this.
Also, it’s not very practical. Each letter in binary has something like 8 digits- meaning that every letter in this system has to be, at a minimum, 16 or 17 digits long. Even the most basic of words now become too long, for example, the word “the” would be at a minimum of 50 characters long.
Though, this lengthiness may also be another layer of encryption- stopping lazy people from decoding your work may just be what you’re looking for.
