Those are better guesses than what I was putting in at first. Glad I could help!

My goodness. Duh! I had been putting in things like Neo, Morpheus, Matrix, and White rabbit. Thanks!

According to the red pill, blue pill page how do you discover more than what you know?

I'm stuck on the "Why doesn't anyone know?" and "Red or blue pill" screens, going back and forth infinitely. Any ideas/hints?

Oh great, peoples' brains are still getting killed by this puzzle, good to know

Sigh... NEVERMIND - got that one figured out. It's been fun everyone.

Hi fellow solvers! I've been working my way through puzzle 42, and I think I've gotten pretty far, but now I'm stumped on the facade puzzle. I've already flipped the image and considered whether the flipping meant the numbers that replace the names are mirrored, but I can't find any significance in the numbers anyplace in the book or the broader internet. I really didn't want to reach out for help on this one, but I'm pretty sure I'm truly stumped here.


Help a puzzler out?

nevermind to my nevermind to my nevermind to my nevermind i finished it and it's finally done and it will no longer haunt me at night and this was incredibly difficult but i did it and now i can finally rest knowing that i have solved all 42 theorems in order and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA also i had some help so

On January 5, 2021 at 10:43AM EST FlipFlopd1 responded to themselves:

nevermind to my nevermind to my nevermind i got past it by random chance and then stuck on "why is there something rather than nothing" and watched the ted talk and am still deeply confused

On January 5, 2021 at 9:05AM EST FlipFlopd1 responded to themselves:

nevermind to my nevermind i got stuck again on the third part of the "what is all of this" screen (there is something but no nothing) and can't figure out the pattern. I know there is one because that's the point of the "what is all of this" puzzle but i can't figure it out

Keep failing until M asks what the Master Theorem is. The words "the master theorem" will be a link to a website that contains most of the theorem's puzzles.

Glad I could help. I didn't know that the platform mattered.

On December 31, 2020 at 11:20AM EST Bodenalan responded to SmartNerdGuy:

Ohhhhh...

Thank you so much!

You can’t actually move them on mobile, so I had to switch to my computer

On December 31, 2020 at 10:53AM EST SmartNerdGuy responded to Bodenalan:

Look for something that all of the Theorems share, and move them on the website accordingly.

On December 31, 2020 at 10:12AM EST Bodenalan responded to SmartNerdGuy:

Yeah

On December 30, 2020 at 2:44PM EST SmartNerdGuy responded to Bodenalan:

Have you solved all of the Theorems on the website?
