    And on the bottom scale, it's at 0.7 for July?

    Or July 17, 2017

    7.17.17

    Tomorrow.

    Also:




    Rotating the new logo upside-down gives you a 7. Or perhaps even a 17..

    New logo could also be the mathematical symbol for "less than".

    The triangles on the dial also look somewhat similar to the grey marks others have identified as repeating on both covers. Just an observation, probably means nothing.

    Remember when records had back covers? No? Maybe this one is important.

    Is that our "physical component" in the bottom right portion of the photo?

    2022? Presence? This is some Year Zero stuff for sure (not that this should be shocking)! This is a good development.

    0 B.A. was 2022 in the Year Zero storyline. It says "Presence." I can't believe this is happening. The line "And all we ever were, just zeroes and ones" in Zero-Sum, and the presence of overlords of some kind (The Warning, Meet Your Master) indicate that there was some sort of "world simulation"-angle that none of us seemed consider back in 2007.

    Going back to the front cover image and how it was geo-tagged. Are we sure that was an accident? Given Trent (and surely Kraw's) attention to detail, I doubt that was a mistake. Now, looking at this image...there is something red propped up on the right.

    Could this be an actual, physical thing that exists at the prop shop as part of an ARG? And could that red thing be part to find?

    I noticed the Presence and the 2022 date as well. Couple that with the fact that "Less Than" is comparable, in theme, to "Capital G" and this being related to Year Zero isn't so far fetched. Interesting....

    There were GPS coordinates in the tags of less than... Maybe the numbers on the back and front cover can lead to a given point (by triangulation) ?

    Oh wait I don't want to think about it.

    S.A.S.C. 007516M.

    This one feels like a big clue we need to crack.

    This has YZ pt2 written all over it. There's no way this is not some advance prep work.

    Probably unrelated, but Year Zero was released on April 17, 2007. That would be 007417. This is all kinds of ARG crazy, obviously, but that number is sort of close.

    Should we have a separate thread for Backcover discussion?

    Top right of the newest pic, "S.A.S.C" +007516M ( 7 billion 516 million), seems to relate to the population of earth, as of today it's 7.4 billion, in the pic it's 7.5 billion.

    So... this is Year Zero pt 2, and thematically it is very similar to Bleedthrough (Everyone seems to be asleep, none of this is happening, I can't seem to wake up, etc).

    It feels like some kind of twisted masterplan, and I love it.

    This might be pretty obvious, but there are a lot of references of many (all?) albums in there, not only Year Zero. This is in line with both the concept of NTAE and the lyrics in Less Than. Interesting.

    I wonder if the Physical Component is the small red notebook in the gap between the devices?

    It looks like FB & Twitter have larger versions of the rear cover than NIN.com, but none of them have any GPS data.

    As I said before, details stopped at idtags: capslock in idtags
    I also said there were a funny truck from 12/2016 on this tag it could be nothing but it's a local geaotag anyway

    I can't wait to try and crack this one! I never got to do the ARG with Year Zero.
