Fans of Fringe: You've known all along that those weird glyph images that precede commercials meant something. The producers have said that they mean something (see video below).

And now Julian Sanchez, a genius code-cracker at Ars Technica, has figured it out. (With a nod to colleague Erica Sadun.) If you want to play along, the solution is after the jump.

Sanchez has identified which symbols correspond to which letters of the alphabet and has unraveled the secret code word embedded in each episode, which we're promised will provide a new clue to the overarching mythology of "the Pattern."
