Memory Fragment 7

The forgetherealone site was updated with memory fragment 7 and acted exactly like Memory Fragment 5.

Guess 1

We submitted Fragment 6:

THEVOYAGESHATTEREDVESSELANDALTERSHISTORYSOALCHEMYHADNOPROGENITOR

and the response was:

1/4: 16285086896193798144
Warning: 3 attempts remain in this cycle before complete and permanent system shutdown.

So that gave us:

1110001000000000010000000100000000000000000000000000000000000000
THE   A          D       N

ruled out so far:
   VOY GESHATTERE VESSELA DALTERSHISTORYSOALCHEMYHADNOPROGENITOR

We made another large spreadsheet and tried using knowledge about English (letter frequency, bigrams, trigrams) and help from nutrimatic to come up with good guesses that would either rule out or confirm pieces.

Guess 2

We noticed the last letters of fragments 6-1 spell "RESENT" so we tried adding a "P" in the last spot.

Guess 3

We tried to be smart. For example for "THERE A " we guessed "THEREWAD" to simultaneously guess "THEREWAS" and "THEREHAD".

And that's where we were stuck for a long time. We didn't want "complete and permanent system shutdown" and we had a lot of options but no slam-dunk.

Making a Deal

We spoke to Dealmaker and got Fragment 7 in exchange for a Morphic Key.
The Fragment appeared on a piece of paper that was recovered from the dirt, so it still took a little time before we had the final answer.

A contractor found a muddy page near the location of the White Mountains event. Only part of it is legible due to the mud, but with some effort/orders the contractors should be able to clean the rest up.
