The interpretation of the binary code supported by Penniston has always been problematic. Here on this list as well as other places, I described the slap-happy way they decoded it in order to get something meaningful. http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2011/jan/m08-001.shtml I found that Penniston's data from 1980 is better decoded as an image using a decoding algorithm encoded in a crop formation in 2010. The result is a cartoon figure that looks a little like Snoopy. I treated the data from beginning to end as 8-bit pixel values; i.e., I did not arbitrarily switch between 7 and 8 bit ascii and insert missing characters as Penniston's "expert" did. The same decoding algorithm also found instantly recognizable images in two crop formations that appeared 22 and 30 years later. The whole story is told in the following article. http://www.treurniet.ca/bigpic/CCImages.htm A source listing of the decoding algorithm and the raw image data are included in this file. http://vixra.org/pdf/1112.0050v1.pdf In my opinion, the following rationale best explains the presence of the images in the three data sets. "Six meaningful images were decoded from the three sets of data using the same decoding algorithm. Because the decoding algorithm was specified in the latest data set, all of the data sets must have been designed by the same agency. Further, we were not meant to see the images until 2010 when the decoding algorithm was provided. Three of the images offer greetings, and the remaining three depict harmless animals and a child. The implied message seems to be that we should not fear the authors of the images when we eventually meet. Since this message would be trivial if the source were a human agency, we may infer that the authors are probably not human." It is also possible that the project was an operation jointly carried out by a human agency and a non-human agency. The images may have been a way to test a method of communication between them. Either agency might have been the intended recipient. If that is true, the images may never have been meant for public consumption. It is, of course, possible that the entire project spanning 30 years was carried out by a human agency alone, but I can't think of a motive when there is no non-human involvement. In any case, by not focusing strictly on Penniston's binary data, we can see a bigger picture. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
