Fringe Glyphs Key Code

Updated on January 29, 2012

Fringe Puzzles


Gylphs Code

As died hard Fringe fans we have been watching this code since Fringe aired. I personally believed it was based on the Hebrew/ Arabic language having the dots represent vowels but the solution did escape me. Although I must admit I wasn't looking too hard.

JJ Abrams is known to embed code into his televisions shows. This was true of Lost a show which I did break the code. And now it is true of Fringe. In all probability there is a code in Person of Interest as well but I haven't picked up on it yet.

So for the last three seasons each and every episode had contained embedded codes for the viewers giving this show a whole other dimension for the audiences viewing pleasure.

If you already know about the solution of the Glyphs Code for Fringe then this is not surprise to you but if you still want to solve the code on your own then read no further because I am about to give you this simple cypher system so you can read all of your messages from JJ Abrams.

      I was able to break the code just by knowing hebrew and making certain assumptions. While the complexity of your theory is interesting for me a code is not useful if it is too complex.

      I think everyone has known this was a code since the beginning and caesar's code is based on middle eastern culture. And it wasn't too hard to figure it was a shift cyper since those have been used since 9th century in the Arab world by Al-Kindi. However the dots represented a challenge for those who do not know middle eastern languages. But I can think of several cypers which use dots including some from Milan.

      Your post was appropriate and informative so thank you for sharing. Fringe is off the air currently but I didn't think the cyper was that hard either. But congradulations for breaking the code.

      Now that the code is out there we will have to see what the producers have to say to their fan base.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

      I just finished watching season one and noticed the obvious cipher. My attempts to solve it led me here but I believe I have found the key to the rest of the cipher table if my assumptions below are correct.

      The glyph cipher on the dvd menu no one talks about. I had to crack it. It didn't take nearly as long as I thought.

      Notice the dot on the sea horse is not over the tail? This IS the cipher for "Z" and I would hypothesize that "X" would be this glyphs reflection if you follow the pattern of the rest of the table and the following.

      The leaf has the dot at the top and the leaf is curving to the left. This was so puzzling to me as it is in actuality a combination of the two ciphers "A" and "B," revealing how to crack any derivitive of the glyphs.

      Using the Caesar Cipher referenced in the show with a little twist, the cipher reads "ZRAB." Using basic Caesar Cipher would yield "CUDE." This is where the twist comes in.

      Instead of moving forward in the alphabet with the letter "R" you move backwards, the cipher fittingly and almost explicitly reads "CODE," as though the key was right in front of us from the beginning.

      Hope this helps those like me who cannot let a puzzle go unsolved. You're welcome also for, as far as I can tell, finishing the cipher code if my posit is correct for the unknown characters.

      Here is a link to an updated fringe glyph cipher I scavenged from fringepedia and updated which is, I believe, correct and finally complete.

      Hi ePetNation,

      I love Fringe as well. I must admit I miss Joshua Jackosn but Anna Torv has really stepped up her game. Usually JJ Abrams always has codes in his shows for those inclined to break them. Lost was a really simple exmaple of that as well. I ended up spending a lot of time at Wolfram on the internet that year.

      I should warn you that I have been through the first two episodes and they have only prodcued the letters "appearinr limbus" which must be a code within a code which is not entirely unusualy for this type of show. But check my work and let me know if I am wrong.

      Thanks for reading, comenting and providing feedback.

      Your comments are appreciated.

      WOW, I Love Fringe but I never knew there was a code during the shows. I just thought they played those pictures at random. Now I am going to have to go back and watch the shows again to see what the code is. Thanks for the information, this is great. I have to share this with my mom and cousin, both are Fringe Fans.
