Daniel, thank you for referencing my Thunderbolts Forum post. I appreciate your kind words and spirited debate.
Reading through the posts so far reminds me of the story of the man leaving the bar.
A man leaves a bar, when he notices a second man searching around in the parking lot. He asks the man, "What are you looking for?", and the man replies, "I am looking for my car keys". The first man decides to help him and joins in the search. After a while, the first man turns to the second and asks, "Where did you last see your keys?", and the second man replies, "over there, at the far end of the parking lot, by my car". The first man then asks, "Then why are you looking for them way over here?", to wit the second man replies, "Because this is where the light is...".
If we had all the pieces of the puzzle, solving it would be easy. I believe we need to look outside the box, if we are ever to solve this puzzle.
Also, be careful of discounting imagination, intuition and fantasy. They are the tools we humans have when searching for clues in the dark.
The Polish code breakers of World War II successfully reverse-engineered the German Enigma code machine using only the coded German messages as clues. And the British took their work and created the first electronic computer, which decoded the messages in near real-time.
The Polish code breakers never saw the Enigma machine, but that did not stop them from figuring out how it worked.
I post for your edification. I am not looking to convince anyone of anything. I am just sharing what I've found so far...
