Terminal 00 Part 4: New Discovery

I told you I would come back to Terminal 00, didn’t I?

Today I came across a new “section” of the site, which I thought it would be interesting to share.

On the main page, there’s an image with the message: “You have no chance of surviving this place. Turn back now, while there is still time.”

If you click the design in the center, it takes you to another page, called “Irentae”:

terminal00_irentae

Click the design on this page, and you’ll be taken to a page with an ominous warning:

terminal00_turnback

It reads:

YOU  THERE,  TURN  BACK.  THIS  IS  BEYOND  YOU.

DO  NOT  PROGRESS,  ELSE  YOU  WILL  FIND  YOUR  LIMITS  SEVERELY
LACKING.

ARE  YOU  LISTENING?  DO  NOT  PROCEED.

USE  YOUR  PROBE  PROTOCOLS  AND    RETURN  WHENCE

YOU  CAME.

CoS  IS  RAMPANT.

To read the full warning, visit here: Terminal 00: Irentaex. If you click “RETURN,” it takes you back to the beginning, but who would want to do that? Anyhow, if you keep scrolling down, you’ll see another “probe,” if you will (at least I think it’s a probe).

Click that, and you’ll be taken to another probe that fluctuates and changes wildly:

If you go through this one, you’ll reach an ominous looking page called “Depth 0000 Start”:

depth0000_edited

Click the link in the center that says “Continue,” and you’ll arrive at this page, called “Depth 000”:

terminal00_000center_edited

From here, as you can see in the screenshot, it says, “Dare you see the truth?” Below that are several links: “Grave,” “Message,” and “Retreat,” accompanied by the message, “Well? Do you see it?!”

It should seem obvious where you can go next, but if you scroll down a bit, there’s more:

terminal00_center_pt2_edited

The message reads:

It bleeds around you.

Mote by mote, it is revealed.

Made clearer to those without clarity.

Yet you must peer deeper still!

Look, look inward!

The word “deeper” has yet another link on it, which leads to this:

terminal00_000deeper_edited

At the bottom of the page is yet another link that reads, “Deeper,” which takes you to a page called “Deeper Still”:

terminal00_deeperstill

On the top of this page, as in the above screenshot, is a message that reads “CAN YOU SEE IT YET?” If you click on the diamond shapes spread across the page, they’ll light up, but they don’t lead anywhere. Once again, scroll to the bottom of the page, and you’ll see another link that says “Deeper.”

If you click this, then you’ll be taken to yet another page, with the repeated message, “CAN YOU SEE IT YET?” For fun, you can highlight these messages and they’ll glow. Scroll to the bottom of the page again, and there will be yet another link that says “Deeper.”

This leads to a strange page called “000 Noble,” on which you’ll see a large diamond shape:

terminal00_000noble

This is not one of the “probes,” however. What’s compelling about this page is that it features some hidden text and some cryptic messages. Below the diamond shape are some black boxes which, if highlighted, reveal text:

terminal00_000noble2

terminal00_000noble3

terminal00_000noble4

The text reads, “But do you understand this? Because all there is to know, all there is.” Further down is some garbled text that says:

ot1ie.

1

It’s c. o7mig for tis . Tem9nal.

81

It wl end 0. h3is fo3rv. er.

15

9Yu. us l. eave.

And underneath this is another “probe,” which leads back to the homepage. Aww, dang! I certainly don’t think we’ve explored the entire site yet, but this was an interesting little journey.

I should mention that if you start reading Angus’ fantasy novel Stars Bleed, which he has excerpts from on his site, some of the Terminal 00 puzzle will start to make sense, as they correspond with one another.

As I’ve said before, if anyone discovers parts of the site that I haven’t found yet, feel free to share them in the comments!

  1. Hi! Me again, just now reading your older posts, and I see that you might be having some issues understand what the probes actually are.
    The Probes are your curser. They change in certain areas. I’m not exactly the best at explaining this, but there is a link (http://angusnicneven.com/Probedata) and it tells you what classification the probes are and what it looks like when they have recieved data (Over a link) or in default state. I can’t help but think this is important somehow..
