Atoms, Motion & the Void: "The Numbers Station"

This was a fun one to work on. I was seriously creeped out to research the real-life phenomenon of "numbers stations", mysterious hidden shortwave stations that transmit cryptic codes, presumably for the benefit of spies. ("Lost" drew inspiration from them too, apparently.) There's a lot of youtube clips of recordings of the transmissions--it makes for creepy listening late at night!
