Alan Turing on the fifty pound note

Alan Turing provided the theoretical underpinnings for the modern computer. While best known for his work devising code-breaking machines during WWII, Turing played a pivotal role in the development of early computers first at the National Physical Laboratory and later at the University of Manchester. He set the foundations for work on artificial intelligence by considering the question of whether machines could think.

Here is what it looks like:

There is a hidden code in binary.  And, who knows, perhaps more secret suggestions?

This is only a foretaste of what is to come
    and only the shadow of what is going to be.


For the sake of discussion, this Turing quote seems to me, to be a coded message, that may be deciphered.   Here is a word frequency analysis:


    [This] => 1
    [be] => 1, [is] => 3
    [only] => 2
    [a] => 1
    [foretaste] => 1
    [of] => 2
    [what] => 2
    [to] => 2
    [come] => 1
    [and] => 1
    [the] => 1
    [shadow] => 1
    [going] => 1
