The picture from flickr, directed by mails sent by "A Friend".
The popular theory is that this picture indicates that Amundsen found a door leading to something on one of his expeditions.
Present on picture is a text in latin:
"Dominus deus ergo soporem in adam"
Which is from the Bible, Genesis Chapter 2 Verse 21.
(Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon Adam: and when he was fast asleep, he took one of his ribs, and filled up flesh for it.)
It is theorised that the clock seen scribbled on the picture shows where to start reading the words, at 8, meaning from the word Ergo - going clockwise. Thus receiving the above mentioned order of words.
On the bottom of the picture are two symbols. Kanji:
The signs are thought to be those of metal and rooster.
It was discovered that when opening the picture from Flickr (Has to be that version of the pic) in notepad, there was hidden text imbedded within the image.
This is the text that was found:
From the journal of Nicolas Belmont:
"We descended into the valley, ten years after A. first found the gate. After taking the photograph, I followed, the last man through that terrifying stone door.
"I remember turning, seeing a dazzling blue sky, a brilliant white sun, and then...descending into that primeval, eldritch darkness. Led by Tibetan Sherpas, our journey into the mountain felt eternal - hours turning into days, ever downwards, madness lurking at the edge of our thoughts - until finally we--"
A Friend wrote in one of his/her messages:
I must gather the following information: When was it taken. Where - exactly - and by whom. Who is the man standing near the camera? And how will this information relate to the approaching darkness?
These are apparently things we have to figure out..
So, When was the picture taken?
- Dec 21, 1921 ( based on the Chinese year of the Metal Rooster and reading the bible quote number as 12:21)
It was in the first friend message 20122112 (20:12 21st december) and also on the clock if you consider having both "minute" hands one showing 8 the other showing 12
Where is this picture taken?
- Antarctica 86 15 24S 153 42 40E
- It's clear with the discovery of the photo meta data that this picture was taken by Nicolas Belmont.
- Pandora’s Box
- Eden (Using the bible quote)
- The ark of the covenant
- Agartha (one rumored entrance is under each pole)
- Garden of Eden
- The ark of the Covenant
- The Holy Grail (Like the Templars)
- Noah's Ark.
- A Pandoras Box
- Amundsen (listed as the most likely candidate for who "A" is. "A" is also thought to be the best friend we're looking for.)
There are many theories on all this, and I have not had the time to go through them all, so forgive me if something is wrong or missing. Please - tell me if there is anything!
The Next Step
Combining the date, time and coordinates of the location, we get this url:
This leads to a loginpage with the text "Welcome back, Aveline."
Using these we get to see the back of the "Amundsen photo".
It is a letter in French, apparently from Nicolas Belmont to his wife.
It translates into:
"My dear love,
As I write these words our ennemies are gaining terrirtory. I will not let them take me.
The secrets that I keep cannot, must not, fall in their hands.
I tried to stop these terrible events from taking place, but I am afraid I have failed.
My love, I will never see you again but you
They will help the both of you (or the 2 of them will help you)
But be cautious, we are faced with the biggest of all mysteries, A conspiracy that predates this age, all ages.
They will wake up.
It has begun.
So. Where to from here?
