So many of the signals we capture are in code, the code coded so well that there appears to be no code at all. Such is the case with this snatch of conversation retrieved from over a dozen a tape recordings labeled “Mr. Thompson.” Honestly, the conversation seems to last forever, and it’s all misdirection. The heart of the matter comes at around in tape #9, who Thompson’s name is finally spoken. He had been the subtext all along, and the makers of the tape assumed (incorrectly, thanks to LS archivists) that no one could slog through over 19 hours of audio to get to the point where the code finally revealed itself in the name of Thompson.
