Numeric and Alphabetic Clues

Homepage

On the homepage there is some text (most of it backwards) and numbers. That is all below. (Slanted letters are copied from the website, and bolded letters are notes.)

"Welcome, I'm Dr. Marvin Candle. Since you've found this I assume you've watched the orientation film for "The Swan" and found me through ARPANET. I hope your stay at the research facility is going well. You must follow the rules for the greater good of the Dharma Initiative. I may post important updates on the upkeep of the facility here. Namaste."
Note: ARPANET is the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network developed by ARPA of the U.S. Department of Defense.

ABC

Lost

The first 6 characters are The Numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42).
Following that, are the characters: "4 8 F 10 17 2A". That's Hexadecimal for 4 8 15 16 23 42.
"100 1000 1111 10000 10111 101010" is Binary for 4 8 15 16 23 42.
"0061 006C 0076 0061 0072 0020 0068 0061 006E 0073 006F" is Hexadecimal for "alvar hanso".
"64 6F 6E 74 70 72 65 73 73 69 74" is Hexadecimal for "dontpressit".
Near the end, there is a french word, "perdu". This means "lost" in english.
Just after that, notice the "62, 39, N, 16, 32, E,". The coordinates 62°39' North and 16°32' East point to the Ostersund region in Sweden.
At the end, there are the characters: di, 9f, f, tr, 73, 1. This makes up the code that is on all of The Swan's food items, DI 9FFTR731.
Also of note, there is a hidden link in the list of numbers and letters. The "," after the 51 links to http://195.3566308/q%75%61%63%6b%6d%63%64%75%63%6b/abc/lost/hanso/ where there are more letters and numbers, seen below.

"The ownership of markwickmund was handed over recently to me in an effort to advance work further in psychology, parapsychology, zoology, meteorology and electromagnetism. I will continue to run it as intended. OhAvAnSrAl."
This is the same paragraph as in the first page, however there are a few changes. Marvincandle.com was changed to "markwickman", and the "OhAvAnSrAl" is added, and it's an anagram for "Alvar Hanso".

Same as in the first page, however the "Marvin Candle" and the "ARPANET" are now backwards.

The "20,8,5,25,23,9,12,12,1,12,12,4,9,5" is added. If the Numbers are switched with their numeric counterparts (a=1, b=2 ect.) we get: "t,h,e,y,w,i,l,l,a,l,l,d,i,e," (They will all die).

> *%*4836dab05beb6bbf5f3 98bcd1c374f02700e7b139244514e8f7ebd6 906c52f8840c2cf99 ca82e3c75aa68e52fdefcb0ae50 86958e177b4b48c12318c5ba1eb78fbb0b1b9 c1d3a1ceaef8b9e17b87323804d868252d51624fda339d47a9355972b2b 1bf73e086fee7e33ac7cf4d8ceb2007aab8e2 e27778b45c309248b5 fbe622d9acd966fd < 108

108 is the sum of the Numbers.

Vi kan selv ændre odds for at få et længere liv. Andres unger, dine børn.

This sentance is hidden below everything else. It is black, so it can only be seen when selected. It is Danish for "We can even change the odds in order to have a longer life. Your children, other youths."

Images, Sound files, and External Links

Mainly on the second page, there is a large amount of hidden links to other media. Similar to the first page, where the link was hidden, all of the links on this page don't appear unless hovered over.

    • These appear to be runestone symbols. More information: Freya Runestones.
    • The stones shown are (in order):
      • NAUTHIZ: Restrictive forces and unacknowledged needs; that which tends to hold you back. Relationship Interpretation: Areas of restriction; possessiveness and mutual needs.
      • ANSUZ: Higher sources of communications from either within or outside the self. Relationship Interpretation: Interpersonal communication.
      • RAIDO: Your ability to relate and connect; the amount of control you feel you can exert on your life. Relationship Interpretation: The fights of the individual within the relationship.
      • URUZ: The individual's physical strength, endurance and assertiveness. Relationship Interpretation: Endurability of the relationship.
      • ISA: Blockages, frustrations and any hindrances. Relationship Interpretation: Privacy. The areas in the relationship which are not shared.
      • The last one is not a direct match to one of these runes.
    • A lot could be implied by this particular choice of stones.
