“Some of the messages contain very graphic, even war like sayings. Or a juxtaposition with what’s said in the quote. Some have been terrifying. You’ll notice that one is the primer and has been deciphered as this Latin saying: ab ovo usque ad mala, from the egg to the apples, ‘from beginning to end’. Notably a more positive one than the many other notes found. Think thus far it’s been about fifteen notes found so far. A few, including yours remain unsolved.”
