In July, 2008 the Official Fringe website Fox.com/Fringe added a new glyph - a sheep horn.  When you click on it, you would go to the updated site about case 0091.  The website address is 1.61803398874989484820458683436563811.com.  The number 1.6180… otherwise known as the Golden Ratio, is an approximation of the number Phi, and has close connections to the Fibonacci spiral.  These things have many reference in ‘Fringe’.

There was also an image of a braille message, when you clicked on the seahorse…

As it was shown on the website

I have translated the braille, and here is what is says…

    Just throwing this out there in case it hasn’t been mentioned, but the braille numbers are a Fibonacci sequence… Maybe in combination with the pictures it reveals a secondary pattern or code of some sort?

    You’re right, they are the Fibonacci numbers. I will get into that when I complete my ‘case_0091′ section. Good eye double_g.

    What does the braille at the bottom of the screen cap say?
    Man, the more you look into this, the more interesting it gets…

    @ Paul: the braille at the bottom are numbers from the Fibonacci sequence.
