Two parts K4 hypothesis
#1
For a while, now, there was an interresting hypothesis stating that in fact, K4 could be not an homogeneous block, but instead made of two distinct cryptograms.  The last (crazy) hypothesis I saw regarding this was 42 + 55.

But there is a much plausible hypothesis in 63 + 34

  • When JS came with Berlin, he stated that it was a "significant clue" but did not exclude that it was maybe not the word itself that was important.  Berlin comes at position 64.
  • The length of K1 is just 63
Funny maths

K4 length is 97.  Take 9 * 7, it makes 63 (implies 34 for the rest).

Takes 6 + 3 = 9
Takes 3 + 4 = 7

Rejoin them, you get 97.

So for me, this hypothesis is the most convincing, not because it is an idea of mine, but because 63 is obviously everywhere in Kryptos.

Another possibility

We should also consider 63 in the context of K4 "as shown"

In such case, the 63th letter would be T(WTQS), at the beginning of the third line.
