I always knew the basics of the story. But watching this video was the most enjoyable piece of anything I ever watched. Knowing what was at stake, and the little details just made it so much the better. Those folks at Station X are heroes that should be remembered forever, along with the gents of the Royal Air Force. I just love everything about England and just such a remarkable country over time. To know they were at their knees and made it just gives me goosebumps. Had Hitler been more competent, the war could of turned out much different.

Brits deemed Enigma unbreakable. Poles provided a working, military Enigma machine, theory, operating procedures and know how to Brits and French in Pyry, Poland in 1939. Poles cracked Enigma in 1932, when Turing was still in college.

My son suffers from Asperger's syndrome like Alan Turin. He passed every exam at school with top marks. He never revised because he had remembered everything he had ever been taught. But the down side of this syndrome is the inability to socialise, or to size people up which has made him a virtual recluse. He now puts his time into investments and is doing really well. His oldest son has just started University and has a good brain and no sign of his dad's problems.Alan Turin could have gone on to great things.....but. The secret service is responsible for ALOT of bad things and still are. They tried to recruit my grandson. All clouded in mystery of course. Makes you wonder who actually runs this country.

Since there was no Asperger's diagnosis in the time of Alan Turing we can't go back in time and designate that he had that form of autism. He may have just been an eccentric guy who had his own quirks. He definitely showed some of the signs and I'm not saying that he didn't have it but we really can't do historical diagnosis in any accurate manner.

The Enigma was broken in 1932 by three Polish mathematicians: Marian Rejewski, Jerzy Różycki and Henryk Zygalski, who were employed by the Polish military Cipher Bureau. The first Polish copy of the military version of "Enigma" was built in the "Ava" factory in Warsaw in 1933. The process of putting the elements together took place in Pyry near Warsaw. From then on, Poles could read German military correspondence. In 1939, Poland handed over the Enigma documentation to the British.

The Polish transfer of theory and technology at Pyry formed the crucial basis for the subsequent World War II British Enigma-decryption effort at Bletchley Park, where Welchman worked." - wikipedia

Marian Rejewski broke the Enigma code. Thanks to the achievements of cryptologists and possession of the commercial machine and documents provided by French intelligence, Poles started work on building a copy of the Enigma soon after. To put that into perspective, on 30 January 1933, one month after the code was broken, Hitler became chancellor of Germany. With the second world war looming, Poles had to share their knowledge about the Enigma with British and French colleagues. During a meeting in Pyry, near Warsaw, in July 1939, Rejewski and his colleagues demonstrated how to crack the machine and gave each allied side a replica. This allowed Alan Turing to continue their work at Bletchley Park.

Instead of focusing on the internal workings of the machine, they developed a machine called the Bombe that was designed to automate the process of trying different combinations of settings in order to decrypt messages. The Bombe was able to break the Enigma cipher so much faster than the Polish techniques, and the Allied were able to read a significant number of German messages throughout the war. You see the key element in decryption is speed. What use is a message that is weeks or months old and reads „don’t forget to buy milk 🐮…“

We forget now that homosexuality was illegal when Turing was convicted. We must also remember that in the early 1950s, when Turing was convicted for being one, there had just been the defection of two major Russian spies in British intelligence (Burgess and MacLean) who were known homosexuals. All homosexuals in the British hierarchy were therefore suspect as spies, a suspicion that was exacerbated by the normal homophobia of the time. That is why Turing was so persecuted. This is not an excuse for that persecution. It is, at least, an explanation. Incidentally, Turing's sexual preferences were widely known about in Bletchley during the war.... and nobody cared.

While what was done to Turing was wrong, even up to 1990 or so, being gay was taught as being something foriegn agents could use to blackmail a person. However, I am unaware of anyone actually being successfully blackmailed because they were gay. It’s a fact that bad things were done by people working for both the Americans and the British. Because people still commit all kinds of sins, bad things are still done, unfortunately. Many bad things were done by people acting on their own initiative, not beiing ordered to or even encouraged to do them.

Antisemitism lives in the foundations of human society and human nature. The human ego-the desire to enjoy at the expense of others and nature-evolves throughout history and during a person’s life. The more it grows, the more it feels an opposite force also dwelling within. That opposite force is called a “point in the heart.” Contrary to our egoistic desires that wish solely to absorb pleasures into themselves, the point in the heart is a desire that has potential to develop into a desire that loves, gives and positively connects to others. The point in the heart is also known as the seed of the soul, as we can develop it to discover our soul-the connection that underlies those very points. The realization of the potential encased in this small point of desire is the ability to rise above the human ego, where instead of detaching from one another through our growing egoism, i.e. increasingly prioritizing self-benefit over benefiting others, we instead prioritize the benefit of others and positive human connection. The point in the heart is the opposite of our egoistic nature. There are people who host only the negative egoistic force, and there are people who have both the negative egoistic force and the positive altruistic force. When both positive and negative forces coexist in us, then we become called “Jews” or “Israel” according to our inner essence. Likewise, if we solely host the negative egoistic force with no revelation yet of the point in the heart, then we are called “nations of the world” according to that essence. We underwent several stages of development throughout history. The point in the heart first surfaced throughout human society in ancient Babylon. The Babylonians who felt the inner urge to seek something deeper in life beyond the earthly egoistic desires joined Abraham, who taught a method for how to nurture the point in the heart in order to rise above the ego and positively connect. Abraham organized the Babylonians who wanted to study with him into a group, and he called this group “Israel,” which is made up of the words “Yashar Kel” (“straight to God”), i.e. people who aim themselves directly at the attainment of nature’s upper force of love, bestowal and connection, which is opposed to the force existing in human beings, the force of reception. Since Abraham’s time, the two groups-Israel and the nations of the world-have undergone much development. Some from the Israel camp left the group to pursue their natural egoistic inclinations, i.e. with an inclination to the nations of the world, while some from the nations of the world felt that they possess a special closeness and connection, which draws them to Israel. In other words, Jews are not a nationality, but they are people who host the point in the heart, which associates them with the positive force of nature, and which is opposite to the egoistic force that we are born and raised with by nature. The source of antisemitism is in the contrast and conflict between the two opposite desires of our inborn egoism and the point in the heart that can develop our ability to rise above the human ego.

Don't we Brits just love congratulating ourselves on how wonderful we were for breaking the German enigma code?... and the huge, enormously expensive and complex organisation we set up to do so?... and don't we congratulate ourselves that the work of Bletchley shortened the war by a full year? Aye well, maybe... and we never mention that Rommel, in the desert war in North Africa, was known as the Desert Fox because he always seemed to know the plans of the British 8th army and react accordingly, thus staving off the defeat of Axis forces in North Africa for... oh, well over a year actually. The truth is that British signal security was so poor that Rommel, with a platoon of signallers in a few trucks, knew exactly what the British were up to on the battlefield. He also knew British battle plans from intercepting American signals from their Egyptian embassy to Washington. On Churchill's orders, the Americans (who were not in the war at the time) were told all the 8th army dispositions, strength and battle plans. The American code was obsolete and their codebook had been stolen from their embassy in Rome years before. Rommel was getting all this before Washington. No huge operation, just a few signallers in a few trucks: That's all it took for Rommel to prolong the war by... oh, about a year.

Turing was the "Father of the computer" was he? Best not tell Charles Babbage or Tommy Flowers.

@@sabrinamurray "Colossus" was designed by a team led by Turing, and was built by a team led by the "GPO Genius" Thomas "Tommy" Flowers. Neither of them could have done the work of the other.
