THANK YOU VBCHICA923 just as I was reading your note I was looking at my graph and noticed that some lines had more than one zero - so now I can see the forest thru the trees and you are a genius and I feel like a complete idiot. These puzzles can be so aggravating considering how simple they really are once you know what you are doing!!

I get it now so thanks a million! Now I can go back to my To Do list!!!

puzzle 13
illumination pattern

i have found this pattern in the lantern stage whether it is rellevant is still to be determined.

In follwing text take numbers AS WRITTEN as transposing lantern numbers has a different effect. I will mark any numbers with an (O) to signify a lantern that has an O in the middle of it when lit by the corresponding lantern.

1-5(O)
2-9(O)
3-4(O)-7
4-7-3
5-1(O)
6-8(O)
7-4(O)-3
8-6
9-2

So hope this helps someone out i thought it might give me somethin but now ive gone blank.

Hmm...any help here?
Can not figure it out!
Have translated the numbers from binary to decimal, but isn't binary 8 chars?
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): 1001 = 9 10011= 19 or 01110 = 14 11100 = 28

But still can not figure it out LoL

Re: I got O's in different spots

I got the same as you...on the same spots...so hmm...maybe I have to do the lanters twice?

I feel like a dope...

...because I recognized it as binary immediately from the clue "on off". Then spent seventeen years of my life that I'll never get back translating it to hexidecimal, base 64, ASCII text, a little alphanumeric grid I thought had some merit- meanwhile Im sitting there with the answer scrawled on a piece of Starbucks napkin.

I think I overthought it. I also think I may have accidentally solved time travel in the process...

Great then maybe you can travel, lets say 17 years back in time? Spare us please....

Lummisan lighten up,

Gridwerk was making fun of his/her solution and you have to go and pile on, bad form old chap.

This is a place to express ideas for solutions, and as the saying goes if your not part of the solution your part of the problem.

Enjoy the game!

I can't figure this out. What about the cicles that occasionally appear on the lanterns?
