This image was produced from the fifth radio transmission using previously contributed code.

This partly annotated version of the image was made using code from message #3.


There are two new symbols in this message, which are used inseparably from each other. It seems that a combination of them represents an increment operation.

The three-pixel symbol could be the application operator, and the other complicated one is the successor function. (by @nore)

The inner part of the complicated symbol is number 1. (by @gltronred) As a consequence of this observation, this symbol could contain any number: (image by @elventian)

The numerical value of new symbols are 0 and 417.


ap inc 0   =   1
ap inc 1   =   2
ap inc 2   =   3
ap inc 3   =   4
ap inc 300   =   301
ap inc 301   =   302
ap inc -1   =   0
ap inc -2   =   -1
ap inc -3   =   -2


Revised version of the Haskell code that supports the ap and inc glyphs is published on the message #3 page.
