Nothing to See Here

Well this theorem is a bit tricky. I found out what I'm pretty positive are the right letters, but no anagram of those letters are the right word(s).
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): is the word graph in it?

Re: Nothing to See Here

You seem to have the feel of the problem...

The actual answer isn't a 'real' word (per Google search <"Blah" define>) but is an easily understandable neolgism
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): given how the answer is placed in the graphic.

I'm not quite sure how to find the correct order in that case, seeing that it's not an actual word. Is there a way of finding out which pictures you use first?

the reversi game photo is "reversed" and in the solution the colored solution on the windows is reversed

 Spoiler (Rollover to View): yes, as part of the "word"

Standard (English) scan pattern:

Good theorem. I had a tough time mapping the photos to letters, until I searched for

 Spoiler (Rollover to View): 6 dot cipher

which led to a book that let me know that

 Spoiler (Rollover to View): the braille alphabet is composed of 6 dot symbols

I had also gotten the reversi photo backwards.

Also, I didn't see the black ones on my lame laptop screen! Duh. Took me forever because of this.

Hello, I am having a lot of trouble with this one.....I end up with I GRAPHTACT which is not being accepted as correct. I Googled GRAPHTACT and it is a Braille Machine. Could you help me on this one--as I thought I was very close? Thank you so much. Prudence

I knew it was related to
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): braille
as soon as I saw it, and I think I have the images in the right order, but I am totally not getting
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): how the rotation of the images figures in to the answer.

Any nudges would be appreciated.

The rotation of the images doesn't factor in at all. One of the nice features of the code used here is that each symbol has only one orientation.

 Spoiler (Rollover to View): But the relative position of each image -- its "height on the page" -- does roughly correspond to the ordering of the letters in the solution. Gramps alluded to this above.

That's what I thought.

All I'm coming up with is
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): tactzgraph
, which is pretty much what I've been stuck on since 12:04 last night. Not sure what I'm missing. [/spoiler]

Look again at the z and see something different!

Yeah, I had z at first too (push me over the 5 minute boundary)... think of what else it could be.

Yes, me too. Being hobbled with a less than ideal display has cost me a number of minutes and a couple of clues in frustration in a few cases.
