This article is not part of the 2101 Solarian Edition of Wikipedia. It was added to provide clarification for readers and aid in understanding the information published in this Wiki.

A Fragmentary Encryption Anomaly (FEA) is a type of error encountered during decryption of data streams encrypted with Hybrid Fractal Geometric Encryption (HFGE). Typically this occurs if Shambolic Register Credentials are utilized. TransCipher Keys (TCK) are used to associate the disparate sequences and allow the decryption process to proceed with minimal data loss. This process does leave some sections unreadable.

FEA(s) are are denoted by either of the following inline error messages:

  • ...[null Fragmentary Encryption Anomaly]; Information irretrievable, data stream terminated.
  • ...[Fragmentary Encryption Anomaly]; Information irretrievable, data stream terminated.
  • ...Fragmentary Encryption Anomaly; Information irretrievable, data stream terminated.


The original media containing the information published on this Wiki was encrypted using an advanced technology. Much of it has been decrypted, but a significant amount remains encrypted. FEA(s) are the primary technical issues that hinder the decryption process.

Decryption & Publishing

Many considerations are made when decrypting and publishing articles for this Wiki. FEA(s) present one of the most significant obstacles in decryption. TCK(s) can of course be generated to overcome the impediment. But it often takes a significant amount of time and can delay publication of an important article for an unacceptable period of time. A question then arises when FEA(s) are encountered: Should an incomplete article be published or withhold it until the decryption process is complete? There are many factors that go into making that decision, but the bias is most often towards publishing whenever possible.

Below is a visual depiction of an encrypted information stream. The characters displayed are Unicode symbols which are substituted for the underlying data sets. Note; Each Unicode characters can represent multiple unencrypted letters, numbers, or symbols.


Often times it is possible to speed the process of decryption by predicting complete words based on partial spelling (similar to the long running game show Wheel of Fortune). This negates the need to completely decrypt full words and saves considerable processing time. The words in the below sentence were only partially decrypted.

At this point it was possible to accurately establish what the words were and are shown in the below sentence.

Conventions Used when Truncating

Trailing Truncation

Data streams are typically truncated if large sections (more than a paragraph) cannot be decrypted. This is followed by the "...[null Fragmentary Encryption Anomaly]; Information irretrievable, data stream terminated." error message. The error message eliminates the need to display multiple paragraphs of encrypted data such as those noted in the previous section. Below is an example of trailing truncation.

The display of the unicode symbols also serves as a place holder and locator for text once the decryption process is complete.

Partial Truncation

If only short segments of text remain encrypted, paragraphs will include these sections and display them as unicode placeholdrs. Below is an example.
