THE ANATOMY OF A TYCHO VISION(翻译)

Agent Kodamasmiles has taken note of the increased chatter surrounding Tycho in recent days. She’s written a great analysis of what defined the original Tycho Vision posters that first surfaced 5 years ago at Comic-Con 2012.

特工Kodamasmiles注意到最近围绕着Tycho的话题层出不穷,她仔细分析了2012年Comic-con上Tycho首次展出的那五张画作景象的意义。
Tycho’s been in the news a lot lately…

最近关于Tycho的消息挺多的……

I wanted to go back and examine some of his original 5 visions to understand the way they worked.

我打算重新调查他的5张景象画到底想表达什么意思。

It seems to me, there are a few fundamental ingredients that define the original Tycho posters.

据我观察,Tycho的海报原件都由几个基本要素构成。

1) They seem to be legitimate visions of other times and places.
 Sometimes the past (like the headless buddha at Mes Aynak — possibly related to Hank Johnson’s work in Afghanistan when he was working Spec Ops) or the future (such as the premonition of Jarvis’s death in Zurich or his emergence via the Portals at Cupid’s Span).

1)它们看上去是别的时间和地点的合理景象。

有时是发生在过去(比如在Mes Aynak的无头佛像——可能和Hank Johnson在阿富汗时服役的特种部队工作有关)有时是发生在未来的事(比如Jarvis在苏黎世之死的预示或他通过Cupid’s Span 这个Portal显现)

2) The coded phrase.
 There always seems to be a simple cipher known as a ‘Caesar Shift’ (where you simply count up or down the alphabet by a set number of letters for each letter in the cipher — an example would be that a Caesar Shift of 1 on the letter A is B). These coded phrases seem to always be connected to statements made by members of the Niantic Project at some point… so, there’s an auditory component to this vision as well…

它们都由简单的凯撒移位密码编写(凯撒移位:给字母设定一个位移值,所由字母根据位移数向后替换成对应字母,比如位移值是1,即A替换成B),这些密文看起来都和Niantic项目的成员某时期发表的声明有关,所以似乎有个声音相关的组成部分

3) The message.
 Tycho’s trademark scrawl… a short, cryptic phrase… Tycho is telling us the essence of the vision in his own, roundabout way, or offering a warning, a premonition or perhaps something else entirely…

3)消息

Tycho标志性的潦草笔迹……简短的隐晦短语……Tycho用他自己的方式迂回地告诉我们或是警告,或是预兆又或是别的什么。

4) The map.
 There always seems to be the outline of a map somewhere in the picture, hidden in plain sight, usually. In the image attached to this post, for example, you can spot a map of California just to the right of Cupid’s Span.

4)地图

通常都有一幅地图的轮廓隐藏在图上某处,比如在本帖附图中,你们能看到Cupid’s Span的右边画着加州地图。

5) The second vision.
 Each of Tycho’s vision posters always seems to contain one other vision within it… usually a rough pencil scrawl. In the image attached here, we see a moment from Jarvis’s childhood, an encounter with an experimental jet that crashed near his home when he was growing up in California City.

5)第二个景象

Tycho每张预示图里总包含着另一幅景象……通常是潦草的铅笔稿。在这张图里画的似乎是Jarvis的童年时期,他在加利福尼亚度过了少年时光,在那发现了一架坠毁的实验型喷射飞机。

It seems to me that Tycho’s ‘Vision’ posters are more than just windows into a single place and time — they aren’t single visions. They’re like Anomalous zones in and of themselves. Tycho is experiencing multiple places, multiple times, different voices and images and somehow unifying them through his own vision…

在我看来,Tycho的“预示”海报不仅仅展现的是单一的时间和地点——并不是唯一的预示。他们像是各自产生了异常区域。Tycho正在经历着多个地点,多个时间维度,他在以自己的角度把不同的声音和景象统一起来……
