Z340 and the Sacred Nine, DPGI = GAIK



This is an image of the Z340; from the top line go 9 characters over stopping at the (P) running downwards highlight these characters: PDGVI


Null the V and Sub/atbash decrypt: PDGI with




Plain text: “AGIK”... shift the A to the right one place: “GAIK”


Reverse PD to DP


Sub/atbash decrypt: DPGI with the same KEY: PEO


Plain text: “GAIK”


Maybe some of you know about my Z340 solution in regards to the “POETS PEN” and the “SACRED NINE” with tonight’s discovery I might have to post that possible solution sooner.


The fact that this starts at the 9th character and runs though the “POETS PEN” and its close proximity to each other including the KEY: PEO to decrypt it is so amazing that a coincidence can’t even be brought up as an argument against it.


This discovery helps support that my “POETS PEN” solution is correct and “GAIK” was either “Zodiac” or a very important person who was involved.

This is my possible solution to the Z340 cipher:




On 2/4/14, I discovered the proof I needed that this possible solution is mostly correct beyond any coincidence. I also discovered the 9 remaining characters to complete this cipher/puzzle and the true meaning and the importance of what the 9 remaining characters are.


Before I post the solution, I’ll try and provide a little background on the Poet JK Stephen and his poem book, “Lapsus Calami And Other Verses” I will also discuss the importance of the Oct 13, 1888 Jack the Ripper, Jack Porns (9 Jack) letter and the Zodiac’s Paul Stine “shirt-tail” letter Oct 13, 1888 exactly 81 years latter.


I will also discuss the Sept 27, 1969 Berryessa murder (BY KNIFE) that happened on the debut of Jack the Ripper, Dear Boss letter Sept 27, 1888 also 81 years apart and the importance and the connection of this reoccurring  9 theme and “The Sacred Nine”!!!

It really has been an amazing week for me. I have discovered 3 ways GAIK, GIKE encrypted his name into the Zodiac letters, cards and ciphers…found mostly in hooks except here in the Z340. I am discovering so many important things; I’m literally having a hard time keeping up with them.


This discovery “P D G (V) I”…is so important I really need a couple of days to compos my self. There are 2 things that I didn’t see right away that are just as important as the DPGI = GAIK decryption, it really all ties in together…

Thanks Nin…you got my brain juices flowing today with your great post.


I don’t know where to start… so I’ll keep this short because this is a brand new discovery and I’m looking it over as I type. This is a discovery from my PDGI = GAIK I posted 2 weeks ago on my Z340 and the Sacred Nine.


This discovery reinforces my 5 line solution: the “poets’ pen royal tutors” and my sacred nine theories…etc… is mostly correct. You fold the top 5 lines onto the bottom 4 lines for a total of 9, NINE lines. PDGIBP = A GIKE A


This is something that doesn’t happen by coincidence and because of how you merge the top 5 lines and the bottom 4 lines for a total of 9 lines reinforce my work and other solutions that I posted about or in the process of posting.


One thing I didn’t talk about is the key to decrypt DPGI & DGIB into GAIK… the key is: PEO


PEO is basically a permutation of POE. Ironically the key is the first 3 letters of my Z340 solution” (POE)TS PEN….etc This is something someone would do when you have multiple encryptions… hiding the key at the very beginning is very clever. This also reinforces that my possible solutions are correct.


9 place from the right and 9 places from the left, 9 lines downwards: PDGIBP = “A GIKE A”  (POE)


PD and BP are reversible…DPGI = GAIK and DGIB = GIKE using the same key: PEO


Ok I’m tired…before I sign off, did you see the BILL KIRK on the right side? There could be a message within the alphabet characters within these 9 lines that go with GAIK’S name?

I have so much to say and believe me I will add to this but for now…here it is!!!


“Z O A I” decrypts into “G O A I”… this decryption is next to and hooks into:


 “K I R K”


“GAIK” was known by or called “GOATKIRK”


“GOA(I) KIRK”…sub the I for T….(IT)



“GOATKIRK” unscrambles back into “GAIK KROT”


“GAIK KROT” decrypts into “HAIL SOUL”

I don’t know what to say…I’m starring at the keyboard and I don’t know what to type. I’m at a loss for words.


All the years of hard work and I’m actually embarrassed to admit how many hours a day I spent… every day… for at least 6 years trying to reengineer what the Z did through the letters, cards and ciphers. I believed in some of the things I discovered many years ago… I pushed forward and it has taken me to this.


Last night I discovered if you replace the black triangle between (ZO ^ (AI) with a G and decrypt “O P G H” in that order with the same key and method that I have already posted… generates “C A I J”


“C A I J” encrypts back into “G A I K” using this key:




I looked to the right and saw the “A I K” next to where I replaced the black triangle with the G and then it hit me, “GAIK IT”…it actually took a couple of seconds for that to set in….then I realized… I did it!!! The way that GAIK put most of his own name “A I K” in combination with his encrypted name O P G H in a hook, is the icing on the cake on top of what I had already posted recently.


 Now I can prove my “poets’ pen” 9+9, the sacred nine theory and solution is mostly correct beyond any coincidence. But I have a lot of work left and explaining to do.

Daniel, I would like to see a full, more in-depth analysis of your sacred 9 theory. I worry that by looking for gaik or gike or any particular name in the cipher, it may cause a bit of tunnel vision when constructing your cipher solution. This is not a criticism as I do not fully understand your sacred 9 theory, just an observation of a pitfall others have run into when attempting to solve the 340. Hopefully, your sacred 9 theory offers a reasonable explanation which is not overly complicated or skewed in the direction of trying to force a certain name or word into the solution.

I’m Verne Jando:



Hi Paradice while I was working on response to you about my post. I came across this discovery and wanted to get it posted right away. Give me a little more time to post a more detailed response to your questions.


This GT article dated Sept 11th 1969 in my opinion is definitely written by GAIK. A couple things stand out, GOATKIRK is one of them. I know that: GOATKIRK unscrambled is: GAIK GROT and GAIK KROT: decrypts into:




This part is amazing and is further proof GAIK was clever with puzzles and ciphers...etc




“VERNE” is an anagram for “NEVER” at (95%)…See “PEO + I” in a hook below VERNE/ NEVER…PEO = “POE”




The Raven

[First published in 1845]

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more,'

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
`Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'
Merely this and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as `Nevermore.'

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -
Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
Of "Never-nevermore."'

But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee
Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -
On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -
Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels name Lenore?'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!



The Raven by POE 1845, there are 7 references to “SOULS”…etc:




1.  Presently my “SOUL” grew stronger, hesitating then no longer,


2.  Back into the chamber turning, all my “SOUL” within me burning,


3. But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only, That one word, as if his “SOUL” in that one word he did outpour.


4.But the raven still beguiling all my sad “SOUL” into smiling,


5.by that God we both adore -
Tell this “SOUL” with sorrow laden if,


6.Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy “SOUL” hath spoken!


7.And my “SOUL” from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!


This is why GAIK signed off as “GOATKIRK” because "GOATKIRK" decrypts into “HAIL SOUL” and his reponse to Newman and Saltzer from the GT article regarding TAROT readings, teachings, is his way of having fun by encrypting a poem by Poe that has 7 reference to "SOULS" which is another pun off his signature "GOATKIRK" = "HAIL SOUL" 


See.. “AND I” in a double hook using the name “JANDO”... AND + I decrypts into "GAIK"…using the same method that I had already posted.


The TAROT teachings, readings and interest by GAIK is very interesting and possibly ties into the SUB/ATBASH method he used for his encryptions. The sub/atbash is connected to the kabbalah and Mysticism including Gematria/Numerology etc…

Ps. the poem, the Raven is dated 1845 = 18 = 9...45 = 9...the 7 "SOULS" is possibly what inspired him to putting his encryptions of his name into hooks because they do look like 7 in some cases. POE and PEOple is the sub/atbash key and I believe GAIK liked hiding things like this in plain sight.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry about being away for so long. I have taken a partial break from my Z quest to research another mystery challenge. I started this( unmentioned challenge) about a year ago and while I was working on that I recently discovered something important in regards to my Jack the Ripper and Zodiac research. I discovered the missing key to crack the Dear Boss letter and other things that I don't wont to disclose at this time. I always believed the Dear Boss letter was encrypted.

Someday I'll explain to everyone why I took up the Dear Boss letter challenge. I think you'll enjoy the story.

I always thought JK Stephen was Jack the Ripper because of the 68 character 4 lined Z340 research I was working on and posted here but I was wrong. JK was important, he wrote the poem about the ''SACRED NINE'' he may even have been Jack Porns, which is from another Ripper letter but JK is definitely not Jack the Ripper.

You guys are never going to believe who the old Ripper is!!!

In these 68 characters using the correct methodology and 3 keys will unlock the identity of old saucy Jack:

Poets pen royal tutors yours truly jack porns by KR uuu pl rip jks stephanus syy ect

The same goes for the Dear Boss letter, not as many keys though.

The Z340 holds 2 or more smaller encryptions. this is why people are having a hard time cracking it because they take on the whole thing and that's exactly what the Z wanted. reverse the Z340 and it's 5 lines from the bottom. This part of the solution has had a lot of activity on my other post. plain text:

Hoods Sept hands tetter? (hotter?) red man total miss it cost em Sewell dear hit teas pen to his car I

If you input this part and the rest of the plain text into web toy their is a lot of plain text above it running in hooks, like March Cheer Etc, the hooks is an allegory reference to the making up of the Z340 RJI and B . C hooks.

From the same plain text is found the poet Moult and the 340 character poem ''LOVERS LANE''

I'm not going to disclose the methodology and keys or the identity of JR at this time because its a new discovery and I want to work on it a little more. Most of you know who have been following my Z and Ripper quest knows that the number 9 is an important number. I literally cracked the Dear Boss letter on 6/12/ 18, 612=(9), 18=(9) is that a coincidence? lol

I also understand what GAIK means, it's not just an abbreviation for GAIKOWSKI it's something more.

I'm Sorry that a lot of my postings are not finished pieces, I've shared new discoveries in the past, in the hopes to inspire others to think outside the box. It's okay to let your imagination run wild. That's why you will never see me criticize another persons research and possible discovery's anymore.

My goal is to stream line my discovery's down to things that can't happen by coincidences and explain them in more details backed by other discoveries that I haven't posted yet.

I hope this makes sense and I'm sorry for not posting a link to my other thread that I mentioned here.
