Re: Can't complete the cube - help!

 codifier wrote: I'm posting out of frustration! I'm stuck on the final PREFRONTAL CORTEX ASSESSMENT with the 3D cube and it's bugging the heck out of me. Three separate times I've solved the cube up to the final two pieces, 25 & 26 and they were around the wrong way. Despite much fiddling I couldn't get them around the right way without messing up other pieces. Here's my solving method: 1. Shuffle everything around so I've roughly got 1-9 in the first layer, 10-18 in the seond layer and 19-26 in the third layer. 2. Put the first layer in correct numerical order from 1-9. 3. Put the second layer in correct numerical order from 10-18 4. Put the third layer in correct numerical order from 19-26 - although failing miserably on this step. I skim read a bit about the 2D 15 piece variant of this puzzle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifteen_puzzle This indicates that some random configurations are genuinely impossible. Have other people found that sometimes they just can't solve the final 2 pieces and need to re-set the cube to get another configuration? Considering that there actually is a re-shuffle button, I have to assume that unsolvable configurations were anticipated by the designers. Is there any rapid way to identify the configuration as unsolvable without having to spend 30 minutes getting to that final point? Sad face.

As far as we can tell no swag comes of completing the puzzle if you want to finish it out of just being a completionest then somwhere in the earily 100's post have some help full hints

Thanks - I couldn't find any revelatory information by trawling back through the previous posts, but I gave it another go this morning and the pieces just fell into place. I'd put that down to chance rather than skill.

I am now a combustibles specialist. Woohoo!

Looking forward to hearing what comes out of Comic Con.

Twitter prometheus just tweeted a pic that shows Weyland recruiters and an Engineer who are all around SDCC2012 so if you go or are there get a pic and ask Q's

Along with the SDCC update, there's also the number you can call, **9395263. It transfers you too a creppy sounding message, some garble, and a hangout. Can anybody figure this out?

It sounded to me like maybe one of the Engineers said something... But it was hard to tell.

Looks like they updated their FB page with a swag shop. https://www.facebook.com/Prometheus/app_284745074948388

Edit: found this too: http://www.whatis101112.com/

The Weyland recruiters are a bit more, err, suggestively dressed than I would have imagined. Pity - I bet someone at campaign headquarters is upset with this.

What's this hangout? Anyone got audio of the phone message? I'm not in US so don't think I can call.

WSJ interview with Damon Lindelof
He talks mostly about the David 8, TED and Shaw videos and how the "viral campaign" came into being.

whatis101112 update

So, as expected,
[url]whatis101112.com[/url] has updated with a short video featuring Captain Yanik.

Strong chance of hidden message/code embedded in the video.

The possible leads that stick out from the video for me:

The pairs of symbols that flash by.
-\
\X
X-
|\

The nod towards "arecibo" indicating an encrypted transmission.

The grid of letters and symbols.

The background audio and sfx are also suspicious.

Anyone catching anything else?

Some of the random visuals in the middle where indeed random meaningless one was evening a music production audio bender

Would these new ARGs be for the DVD release in October or the Prometheus sequel?
