E10 decoded? A remarkable theory

I found this remarkable theory on the Internet many years ago in the archives of a Japanese website. Unfortunately I don't have a current (e-mail) address of the author. The article is probably written in 1990. So Peter, if you read this, drop me a line. -ARY-

The "spy" numbers decoded....
by Peter Febbroriello

Those number stations have been driving a large number of people nutty for a while now... I believe the mystery is over, at least part of it anyway. If the data is copied exactly as broadcast, it forms a series of number groups. Preceding these groups is a count. There is one full count worth of number groups. the first half of each group is a three digit number which is always padded out with zeros. The second half is a two digit number which is also padded. If one were to plot these numbers as separate graphs of data starting with the first half, and then the second half, one does not see much of interest, although the data does seem to have a periodicity, which would never appear in a coded message which used a random code key. If the first group is plotted against the second group, a lattice-like pattern is observed, which resembles the images I have seen of nuclear particle disintegration patterns... but i don't think this is what it is either! The mystery dissolves when the x axis goes from 1 to count, the first group is used for the Y axis and the third group is used for the Z axis. The darned thing is an image of some sort! It's quite obvious, and was probably originally intended to be a transmission of vital scientific importance to a large body of scientists using a very wide variety of data crunching programs and methods. The form of transmission is the most basic possible to get the job done, being quite universal, simple, and easy to decipher without confusion!!! Below, I have reproduced my first and only intercepted transmission of "spy" data. The first file is the raw data. The second file is an X,Y,Z format file for use with most good 3d graphics packages. I would love to get a program that can translate the Z value to a grey scale or false color value for CGA or EGA...

X,Y,Z version
If the image is too narrow, I would suggest expanding the X value by multiplying by a convenient factor. If you know what the data really pertains to, you might be able to incorporate the proper scale into this axis! (Read from left to right)
