21 日晚间,Reddit 用户 Jakedello 首先发现了 twentyonepilots.com 网站上面出现的变化。他在 Reddit发帖称自己发现 store.twentyonepilots.com 商店页面中 Vessel 栏目下的 GIF 被换成了新的。GIF 托管在 gfycat 上面webm 文件),名字叫做“DifficultOldfashionedAntarcticfurseal”(难搞而守旧的南极海狗)。在 0:54 处,视频闪过了一个网址,即 dmaorg.info

根据查询到的 whois 信息,dmaorg.info 于今年 2 月 16 日在域名注册商 name.com 购买,解析信息最后一次更新在 4 月 17 日更新。注册地为美国科罗拉多州丹佛 (80201)。网站空间为在 SoftLayer 租用的 VPS 服务器。

进入 dmaorg.info,网站首页显示如下文字:

you are in violation. thEy mustn’t know you were here. no one should ever find out About this. you can never tell anyone about thiS — for The sake of the others’ survIval, you muSt keep this silent. we mUst keeP silent. no one can know. no one can know. no o ne c an kn ow_

并给出了一个侵犯代码 15398642_14。

随后,DJNakpin 也发了贴文《Twenty One Pilots 2018 Return [MEGATHREAD]》。他发现了网站中的一个新网址,其 URL 中包含的正是 404 报错页面的代码 15398642_14。这个网页中有五幅照片。(我已经把网页存档于此。)

最引人关注的一个地方是,最后一张名为 cla_ncy-988-06MOON_18_-1.jpg 的照片是一位名为 Clancy 的人的日记,描述了他困在一个名为德玛(Dema)的地方中的内心过程。

CLANCY_S JOURNAL

The perplexities of the Dema horizon didn’t occur to me until my ninth year. It was then that I began to contemplate the existential, and decide what type of impression I wanted my life to make. Naturally, to fuel my hope, I looked out upon the distance of the land that had cultivated me, only this time with new awareness of the obstruction that my youthful ignorance had allowed me to overlook. Was it there the whole time? How had I not seen something so obvious? I am reminded of the moment daily, as the realization directly collides with a unique hope for my own future. As a child, I looked upon Dema with wonder, today, I am wrought with frustration, as I spend each day squinting for a glimpse of the top of the looming wall that has kept us here. It was upon my ninth year that I learned that Dema wasn’t my home. This village, after all of this time, was my trap.

Before I became realized, I had deep affection for Dema. There was a wonderful structure to the city that put my cares to rest. Streets and locations were dependable, and the responsibilities of the day seemed to be accomplished with minimal effort. Once a task was taught and understood, we delighted in our ability to complete our obligations timely, and felt secure in knowing tomorrow’s duties would be accomplished with the same efficiency. We all worked to represent our bishop with honor, and knew that each inhabitant of our region had a like-minded dedication to consistency.

Keons embodied the spirit of this dedication. Of Dema’s nine bishops, Kenos was reserved as unwavering and forthright, possessing the ability to achieve focus that was rare for most in our region. We all admired his, and felt honored to be inhabitants of his region. While we had heard legend of the ruthlessness of other bishops, Keons possessed a stoic demeanor unlike anyone I had ever met, and we were all proud to serve.

克兰西_的_日记

直到第九年,德玛的边界才让我感到困惑。那时我开始思考存在主义,并决定我想要我的生命给人什么样的印象。自然地,为了激发我的希望,我的视线越过了耕种了我的那片土地,向前眺望,只是这次我意识到了我年轻的无知让我忽略了那座城墙。它一直都在那里吗?我怎么没有看到如此明显的东西?我每天都会想起这件事,因为这一认识直接冲击着我对自己未来的独特希望。我还是孩子的时候,我曾怀着惊奇,仰视德玛,而今天,我感到非常沮丧。我整日地眯着眼睛,只为了看一眼让我们驻留于此的隐秘之墙的顶端。在我第九年,我了解到了,德玛不是我的家。这个村庄,那么长时间以来,都是我的陷阱。

在我意识到这一点之前,我对德玛有着深厚的感情。这座城市有一个美好的结构,让我的思绪安定下来。街道和地点都是可靠的,每一天的任务似乎不费吹灰之力便可完成的。一旦我们学会了一个任务,我们为自己有能力按时完成任务而感到欢欣鼓舞,也会心安理得地明白,明天的责任将以同样的效率完成。我们都努力向我们的主教致以敬意,并且知道我们地区的每个居民都有一致的奉献精神。

凯恩斯体现了这种奉献精神。德玛的九位主教里面,凯恩斯以坚定和坦率而著称。他拥有抓住重点的能力,而这种能力在我们当地极为罕见。我们都很钦佩他,并且很荣幸能成为他所在地区的居民。虽然我们听说过其他主教残酷的传说,但是凯恩斯拥有一种与我见过的任何人不同的坚忍的举止,我们都为能够服侍他而感到自豪。

早在 Josh Dun 领取 APMA 颁发的 最专注粉丝团体奖 的发言中,Joshua 就说了一句,

“Tyler wishes he could be here, but he’s actually severing ties with dema,”(泰勒希望他可以到场,但他其实在和德玛切断联系。)

这段发言引发了粉丝的关注。随后,Blurryface 的 Twitter 账号收藏了一位粉丝的理论,然后又取消了收藏。这名粉丝在维基百科上面查到德玛是寂静塔的含义。

寂静塔实际上是一种在孟买流行的殡葬场所,也被叫做鸟葬厂。一般位于山顶。在这个网站上,你可以看到寂静塔的介绍。你甚至能看到孟买马拉巴山寂静塔的构造图,与网页上面的第一张照片极为相近。据此推断,第三张照片即是正在蚕食尸体的秃鹰。

在克兰西的日记中,他将德玛描述为由九名主教管理的乌托邦社会,其中一名叫做凯恩斯(Keons)。根据网页上面的第一张照片,德玛是环形的,这种构造让他感到心安。一直以来,他甚至对德玛有着深厚的感情。他在第九年才意识到这是一座由城墙保护的城市,而他们被关押于此,无法逃脱。

由于这篇日记所标注的数字是 Joshua Dun 的生日,有一种理论认为克兰西代表的是 Joshua Dun。他写下这篇日记说明他已经逃脱了德玛。而 Tyler Joseph 仍然被困在德玛里面,他需要逃离出来。

除了 Tyler Joseph 的生日,这次 dmaorg.info 上面的许多数字都有特殊含义。比如页面上面的五个日期分别是《Vessel》、《Regional At Best》、同名专辑的发行日以及 Tyler Joseph 和 Joshua Dun 的生日。
