In The Beginning
Hello this is... they call me Subject Sixteen. Listen, I don't have much time. There's something I have to show you. We have been lied to this whole time. Everything we know, everything we've been brought up to believe. It's wrong. OK umm... I've uploaded the evidence, the file, that proves it all. But I've split it into twenty pieces and locked each with a code. Can't be too careful. Queen Isabella... no not her, hmmm... what century is it? Ummm... nevermind. I've hidden the code to the first file inside this program. Find it -- find them all -- and along the way you'll begin to see the truth.
- Five of these mythic scenes share a core personality. Pick them out and you'll begin to see.

- Atlanta and Hippomenes
- Judgement of Paris
- Triumph of Bacchus
- Idun and the Apples
- Mercury, Herse, and Aglauros
- Core refers to the core of an apple as pick refers to the picking of an Apple. In the puzzle the Apple is a Piece of Eden.

The past: a vast web of connections and interconnections, all ruled by chance. Or is it?
- Elizabeth I of England - ID: Piece of Eden 2 - Apple
- Napoleon Bonaparte - ID: Piece of Eden 1 - Apple
- George Washington - ID: Piece of Eden 3 - Apple
Leaders such as Queen Elizabeth, Napoleon 1 of France, and George Washington were each in possession of an Apple.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt Strategic Meeting, 1944. - ID: Piece of Eden 3 - Apple
- Harry Houdini beginning the Chinese water torture cell escape, 1913. - ID: Piece of Eden 1 - Apple
- Mahatma Gandhi during the salt march, 1930. - ID: Piece of Eden 2 - Apple
As with power being passed on from generation to generation so were the Pieces of Eden. Franklin Roosevelt used the Third Apple to become president, and Houdini used the First Apple to preform death-defying stunts which would seem impossible.
- In Roosevelt's picture there is a pigpen cipher found on the board. This translates to: The Masons brought it across the sea. George Washington passed it on. The cipher below:
- In Houdini's picture a Morse code can be found in the top-right of the picture. This translates to: They hit him in the stomach. The code below:
- .... . -.-- .... .. - .... .. -- .. -. - .... . ... - --- -- .- -.-. ....
- In Gandhi's picture another Morse code can be found. This is also in the top-right corner of the screen. This one translates to: The bullet hit him in the chest. The code below:

- Union troops in formation, Beaufort, South Carolina, 1862.
- The first pictorial presentation of a gun, 900. - ID: Piece of Eden 4 - Apple
The first puzzle's hint is referring to the flamethrower on the man's back. This is evident by the burning campsite, and the hint (it's open mouth delivers the kiss of death). The second hint refers to the general leading the young soldiers to their deaths. The third puzzle's hint is referring to the bayonets. And the last picture's hint (the monster did not come from man). In the original picture one of the men is holding a hand grenade, but was replaced with an Apple of Eden. Each piece of this puzzle is referring to weaponry. The "monster" did not come from man, but came from the First Civilization. Also the ID which must be found is the next picture in the puzzle.
- In the second picture there is a Hexadecimal cipher located in the bottom-right corner which is translated to Antikythera Mechanism, much older than 150 B.C.E.. The code below:

Cut refers to a cutting with a sword. In the puzzle it is the Sword of Eden. Lean refers to the Staff of Eden. Subject 16 explains how many famous warriors of antiquity, such as Atilla the Hun had possession of the Sword of Eden, and how wise men such as Moses possessed the Staff of Eden, and that these relics were passed down through the generations.
- Passcode: 81492
They were mostly heroes. But see, how the lineage is disrupted it? The web of history traps the good, and the evil take what is not theirs!
Each picture shows that Cain killed Abel and took the apple from him. They also show that Cain was the first Templar, having committed the first murder. Subject 16's quote "Behold, the mark of Cain!" also symbolizes this.
- The Morse code at the end of puzzle translates to "Templar texts adapted by Mr. Smith.".

Similar to Puzzle 1, the apple was plucked from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. Jesus Christ was crucified for being in possession of the shroud, and it was taken by the Roman government.
- Located on Jesus' chest the words "They took it" can be scanned. Also at the top of the cross, a Templar logo can also be scanned. "They" were the SPQR, who were Templars.
- Passcode: 10152
The Czar had the Staff of Eden, and Joan had the Sword. The Czar used the Staff to control the Russian populace, and Joan used the sword to lead the French to many victories in the Hundred Years War. The Templars burned Joan to gain the staff, while the Czar was left powerless after Rasputin took the staff to Tunguska. Afterwards with no means of control, the Russian Revolution began. This is stated in Subject 16's quote:
Without the staff, the Czar was powerless. He could no longer control his subjects... Revolution! Revolution!
- In both pictures of the Czar, and Joan there are hidden binary codes which translates to the day they died.
- Czar Nicholas II - 17th July 1918
- Joan of Arc - 30th May 1431

- They made it look like an accident.
- He almost beat them.
The wolves are out hunting. Where, oh, where, has Jack gone?
Houdini died of peritonitis, secondary to a ruptured appendix. In the puzzle, the apple in the location of his abdomen shows how he was killed. "They made it look like an accident" means that Houdini claimed that he could be hit anywhere above his waist and not take injury. The person who delivered hits to his abdomen was J. Gordon Whitehead.
Second is Gandhi who was shot three times in the chest. The hint "he almost beat them" referred to his heart.
Lastly is the details of the John F. Kennedy's assassination. In the puzzle the driver of the motorcade had been trained by the Second Apple, and was supposed to grab the Third Apple from Kennedy after he had been killed. With the use of the First Apple a "phantom" was created at point X of the area. This was the grassy knoll where there was said to have been a second gunman, instead of a single bullet.
Operation: New Frontier
HQ has given the go-ahead to extract the resource. Negotiations are over. F. is planning to give the vote to everyone. Reason just doesn't work with someone like that.
I'll send you the driver. We've trained him with PE2 in our labs, he shouldn't be any trouble.
The motorcade route is marked below. Once the target has been downed, either by Oswald or Z, use PE1 to stage a distraction. Make some kind of phantom appear around this slope I've marked with an X. Freak people out. The driver will grab PE3 in the confusion.
Something was up there. Something abandoned long ago.

- Apollo 11 photograph released to the public. - ID: Piece of Eden 5 - Apple
With Jack deep underground, it was easy.
The Fifth Apple was abandoned on the surface on the moon, and the Templars sent the Apollo to retrieve it.
- In the top-right corner of the moon, a code can be viewed through the cursor. This is a pigpen cipher for Johnson was one of them. The bee's drone too. Follow the money.
- The cursor views the Apollo photograph as a negative. If the cursor is placed over the text Apollo 11 Photograph Released to the Public it would become Original Unreleased Negative.
- In the last photograph the logo of Abstergo Industries can be scanned on the USA flag, as well as the Templar cross on the white flag.

- Nikola Tesla c. 1900. - ID: Piece of Eden 4 - Apple
He found it in Croatia, they would find it in his lab.
Nikola Tesla found the Fourth Apple in Croatia. He then used it to develop an endless amount of electricity.
- Hidden in the top left corner of the screen the quote:
Fights between individuals, as well as governments and nations, invariably result from misunderstandings in the broadcast interpretation of this form. - Nikola Tesla
- Also on the right side of the tower another quote can be scanned:
Misunderstandings are always caused by the inability of appreciating one another's point of view. The best way to dispel ignorance of the doings of other's is by a systematic spread of general knowledge. With this object in view, it is most important to aid exchange of thought and intercourse - Nikola Tesla
- On the bulb of his magnifying transmitter, a code can be seen, A=C. In the electric current there is a message in a Caesar cipher:
JG WUGF KV KQ FGXGNQR C DQVVQONGUU UQWTEG OH GPSTIA VGNGHWPMGP YKTGNGUU UVCVKQP
- This translates to He used it to develop a bottomless source of energy. Telefunken Wireless Station.

From the Laboratory
Dear Mr. Morgan:
A serious matter has come to my attention. Nikola Tesla plans to use PE4 to create an information network across the entire world. And if that weren't bad enough, he intends to allow access to it for free! Imagine the masses spreading knowledge amongst themselves simultaneously. That would make everything we intend to do much more difficult.
You must cut all funds for his experiments at once! In case you get cold feet, I'll have you know he wants to make electricity free as well, thereby putting us out of business.
I've already begun slandering Tesla in the press. Just reallocate his funding, and I'll take care of the PE4 myself.
He wanted everyone to know the secret. To set us all free. They used it to drive him insane.
Dear Mr. Edison,
I wanted to thank you for letting me make use of PE4 all these years. Among several things, I was able to convince the workers I was raising to $5 a day, when in fact, I gave them a pay cut. But, I had let the PE4 go. As per instructions, I've shipped it to Europe.
H, has it, so I assume the war will begin as soon as he can take over. We'll let him have his fun (Lord knows, that kind of purge will be good for Europe) and then end it with a bang, as planned. Out of the chaos of war a new order will emerge! I've enclosed a picture of Florida for you, me and Firestone. We should attempt to spend more time on the golf course this summer.
The Templars stole Tesla's Apple and used it to drive him insane, and the POE4 was passed on to "H" (Adolf Hitler) to start World War II, and seize control afterwards. By Ford's words "Lord knows, that kind of purge will be good for Europe" suggests he organized the Holocaust since he was an Anti-Semite.
- Located at the top of the picture of Mark Twain in Tesla's lab, there is a Morse Code. This is translated to: They used it to make Tesla go insane. The organization took his research. Alien Property Custodian Office. The code below:

I Am Become Death, The Destroyer of Worlds
The letter shows that the Templars were behind the creation of the atomic bomb. Also the Templars gave authorization to an individual known as "O" (J. Robert Oppenheimer). The second piece of the puzzle is obviously a button which when pressed, shows the "mushroom cloud" of one of the bombs.

I don't know what's happening to me. I've been in the machine, they keep putting me back in. And I am losing control. It's all blurring together. I'm holding a rifle, Gettysburg is in the distance. I just stabbed a man, and there's blood on my waistcoat. I;m at the opera, the soprano is so beautiful. I'm in bed with her, she cries as I fuck her. I'm speaking at the forum, no one listens. I'm in the forest, hunting. The moon. I can see the moon. I'm here. I have to stay here until you understand! Listen. Why do we have these gifts, these abilities. Because it's in our blood.

Hitler used his Piece of Eden given to him from Henry Ford to create the Nazi Party. The purpose of the Holocaust was to find a Jewish Assassin who may have had another Piece of Eden. After the war, the Templars were in power as the Allies, and the Axis all planned the peace. Hitler was supposed to survive the war by using a body double. Though he was assassinated outside of the Führerbunker. The Templars later found out of his death after failing to meet with them.
- Above the window of the bomb shelter an A=H code can be scanned. This is used for the Caesar cipher:

The Organization wanted the pieces. They'd taste their power. But what were the pieces? Why did they work so well? It's as if our minds were made for them. Manufactured to obey.
The scientific community is abuzz as the results of a new neurological study were made public today. What seems to be big news in itself -- that Dr. Yijie Wu and Dr. P.J. Traunero had discovered a new neurotransmitter -- turned out to be just just the tip of the iceberg.
The quote Dr. Wu, "Using a prototype dMRI machine, we've been able to examine the contents of an actual neuron in living tissue. We've found a substance that appears to be an undiscovered neurotransmitter."
"(Here's) wheres it gets crazy. To test our findings, we subjected the neuron to all kinds of stimuli, but we couldn't get it to release the transmitter. So we've discovered an entire mechanism: there are vesicles filled with neurotransmitter lying dormant and corresponding ion channels, all for no discernable purpose."
Expressing bafflement that natural selection would create an unnecessary neurotransmitter, Wu and Traunero searched for a predecessor in other species, with no luck.
"Whatever this bugger is used for, it evolved in humans," Traunero told the press.
Those Who Came Before created the human race as slaves, controlling them with the Pieces of Eden. Internally the neurotransmitters were responsive to the Apple.

The puzzle refers to the sun (once worshiped, now ignored, from a distance it watches and waits). The sun was worshiped (by ancient civilizations). The puzzle refers to a catastrophe that previously devastated the Earth 75,000 years ago, and awaits for the second. "They" who died in the fires from the Heavens were Those Who Came Before. Subject Sixteen also states the Pieces of Eden were once part of a whole.
Hidden in parts of the sun various quotes can be seen:
A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky which could burn the land and boil the oceans. - Hopi
Near the day of purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky. - Hopi
They died in the fire from the heavens.

There are few people that know the true creation of Humans. Templars wanted to keep the Pieces of Eden a secret, and arranged for constructed skeletons to be founded in Ethiopia as an answer. The true creation was that Humans were created by the First Civilization who used the Pieces of Eden to use them as a workforce. The hint in the second puzzle (open your eyes) is referring to the Masonic eye at the top of the painting. When scanned, the eye reveals Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. In the third puzzle the Assassin maxim, Nothing is true, everything is permitted, is a hint to the passcode. The puzzle has no true password, and any three glyphs are permitted. In the last puzzle the apple shaped the human body, from that of a primate to a human skeleton. As the last message to the world, Subject 16 then commits suicide.
