FRINGE CASE 0091 EVIDENCE 0002
Sheep Lead to Man-Made Tornadoes: The Sheep Circle Fringe Case then got new evidence (file 0007) that lead to a world of strange man-made weather anomalies. A sequence of braille on the ARG site spells out a Fringe-flagged city in Iowa called Parkersburg. A link inside the braille itself leads you to videos of tornadoes ravaging the Parkersburg town on May 25. Many, many sites are debating that these are man-made tornadoes and point to this article in The Star about the possibilities of man being able to control such disasters.
Further proving that case is actually an Easter egg in the Fringe ARG is the parent directory, which links to a Weather Matrix site - basically a gigantic site for weather enthusiasts. But wait, there's more.
File 090908: Included in the Fringe press kit was a slew of new case information, dictated to a recorder included in the package is a rundown of new and interesting cases:
John Thompson: A normal kid who went missing back in 98, reappeared last month halfway around the world hasn't aged a day. Forty-six other kids who went missing that same year turn up, same story. An hour after a tsunami that kills 83,000 people. A Sri Lankan fisherman reports a low flying plane emitting a frequency that blows out all of their windows. An hour later an 8.7 subsurface earthquake in the same spot creates a tsunami that kills 83,000 people. A patient awakens after spending years in a coma writing a series of numbers that turn out to be the exact real time coordinates of our carrier battleships in the Pacific, intel that is classified above top secret.If you've been reading the comic books, these cases should seem familiar; each of them have been illustrated in the first issue. Massive Dynamic: A corporation called Massive Dynamic is a very important part of the Fringe series. They are a private company that is somehow connected to all of these strange cases, or - if they're not connected - find a way to weasel themselves in. As of right now, the Massive Dynamic website is just a rotating logo with the text, "Updating Our Website. Updating Your Life" but I intend to keep my eyes on them, just in case. I'm expecting creepy Dharma-esque references here.
Fabulous Fibonacci and Golden Ratio: You've seen the Fringe posters around town, on further inspection these ads actually have a hidden meaning, of course. They're not just a neat-o insect wing daisy, no no no, it's so much more. All signs are pointing towards the Fibonacci sequence. The braille at the bottom of the page is 5,8,13,21,34, part of the Fibonacci sequence (This sequence is also a pattern that is present in many forms of nature such as daisies, whose petals grow in spirals of 34 and 55 around the outside). The symbol on the back of the frog poster is a representation of the Phi, 1.6180339887. A fan forum post pointed out that the plane featured in the pilot was flight number 618, and I'm guessing that's not the last we've seen from the golden ratio. Music Videos: Fringe made music videos, though I have no idea why. I'm not really sure what these super-sexy music videos for the Fringe TV are trying to tell me other than, don't forget we're smart and sexy in slo-mo. Either way you get a few glimpses of future episodes and can see what the gang will be up against.
The common thing among most of the Fringe ARG seems to be man meddling with nature. These case files of anomalies all appear to be created by man tampering with the world's natural science. It sounds like we're ripping apart ancient codes and patterns to bend the world to our will, which - in fine SF tradition - will most likely end up tremendously screwing us all. Well done, human race! If the series is as intricate and deep as the ARG with real life science-ish explanations, I can see this ARG building upon itself for a very long time.
