Please help with the mindless workers part. I've tried making the numbers all go fast, or all go slow. HELP!

Thank you!

Google around for an "international language" of sorts that was created to "foster harmony between people from different countries"

Still not getting it, any other hints you can give?

On August 8, 2021 at 9:50PM EST notthatkindofdoctor responded to Aras:

So you're on the right track, the letter-sounds DO combine to make a word

It's not an obvious word . Consider how much easier the puzzle would be if all the characters spoke a "common language" . . .

Stuck on the Common Experience puzzle. I have the letters in their designated spaces however I am not hearing any words out of the sounds?

Somehow I’m still stuck. Any other pointers?

The pill screen is asking you a question, a choice… which would you rather?? Tell the answer box accordingly

I have finished all the theorems, gotten the link, and clicked on the red pill but nothing seems to happen after that except the cover of the book changes. What should I do now?

In the solution box, type any answer. When it comes back wrong, keep trying answers. You will be given a link to click evevntually

have you just tried "excellent"? ;)

On April 26, 2022 at 4:38AM EST ILLUMINATINPS responded to FlipFlopd1:

Hi, I am having a very hard time with this puzzle. I know the red circle directs you to the first training theorem. I know the answer to that theorem. Ive tried everything related to breathing, knowing, rooting (things you do at birth). I even entered the answer in numbers rather than letters. Mind helping me get over the hump on this. ?? Thanks

On February 2, 2021 at 10:03AM EST FlipFlopd1 responded to daveyb:

That puzzle is called "The very first thing." So, through your journey in The Master Theorem's puzzles, what was the very first thing?

I'll bite (again.) Any hints for solving the notepad paper puzzle? Given the new text, I've tried things like instinct, breathe, live, think, as well as a few profanities for good measure. :) Given the notepad paper with red circle I've tried things like name, my name, to-do, and list, among other options.

For the notepad puzzle, Ive tried:


numbers, red numbers, breathing, very first theorem, training theorem, nothing, knowthing, survival etc...


I know it has to do with the first training theorem, and its answer is "excellent", but it looks like the numbers are what was in the circle, not "excellent".


Can someone please give me a solid nudge on this so i can progress?

On April 21, 2022 at 11:12AM EST ILLUMINATINPS responded to CanadiAnon:

I got EXCELLENT from the first puzzle. No, there is nothing inside the red circle. I’ve tried “nothing”, “breathing” etc…. Even tried answers using numbers instead of letters… what am I missing?? Please help!

On April 21, 2022 at 8:04AM EST CanadiAnon responded to ILLUMINATINPS:

You're overthinking it. What is the answer you got from the notepad the first time you did it? Was that answer located inside this new red circle?

im stuck on the notepad. i realize the page its referring to pluss the answer on that page, but don't know how thats related to birth?? any hints??

Thanks so much! I’ve been stuck on that one for months. Would not have solved without those tips.

On April 7, 2022 at 12:14PM EST Rubik’s responded to CranjisMcBasketball:

Hello, I don’t know if you have managed to figure it out by now, but if not I’m happy to give you a hand. Here are three hints, top gives away the least bottom gives away the most.

Every button you pushed changes the output from 1-0 or 0-1

Timing is very important

When numbers appear on the screen some appear fast and some go slow, maybe play around with that.

On February 5, 2022 at 11:36AM EST CranjisMcBasketball responded to notthatkindofdoctor:

I only recently realized I missed the 42nd puzzle and I'm now stuck on this part. Does anyone have a hint for this "pattern" for the button puzzle?

Happy Old Year!

In 42 I’ve been stuck for months on the ones and zeroes terminal.

Any starter tips to spot the pattern? I’ve tried quite a few! :)

Thank you! I found the section I was missing and was able to finish up. A great ride!

It’s not quite over, pay attention to the italicized word

I finally finished all subsequent puzzles but there doesn't seem to be an ending point after entering the solution to the facade puzzle - just get the screen fading to black as you scroll down? Is there supposed to be something more after that?

On September 6, 2021 at 6:49PM EST noobiedog responded to notthatkindofdoctor:

Oh, wow - that did the trick!! Zoomed out and was able to complete. Thanks! Onward.... :)

Howdy—I was solving that on a Mac, and found it much simpler whe I finally zoomed out the view as far as I could.

I really loved the way this book ended. This was a nice challenge, and I thought it was really cool. I can't wait until the next book comes in, because of course I ordered it the same day I finished this one.
