    The music staff is both a 7th interval but also may be interpreted as the notes F and E (given that there is a missing line where there should be 5 lines from top of treble clef to the base, however the line at the top is the F and the line at the bottom is the E)

    FE is also the elemental symbol for IRON.

    The exercise wheel and weights along with the healthy foods in the kitchen support the health and fitness theme. Proper intake of vitamin C helps the absorption of iron.

    The Isaac Newton Color/Music wheel maps the color Orange to the musical note F and the color Violet to the note E. The color Violet is the second most significant color, implied by the bathmat and the lounger chair which have smaller elements of green.

    Perhaps this is our secondary theme: FE, Ferrous, Iron.

    I did some rethinking and have to change or add some things.

    The color interpretation is off, FE isn't orange violet...I must've been thinking of something else. As far as the items that are Violet and Green, that's C and G. Orange, the most abundant on the page is the note E. I've looked at a range of ideas regarding these color interpretations before and never have put it together.

    Additional note on IRON, is that beets are high in iron. Since I maintain that the number of beets in the pantry are the primary basis for the value 8 (for 8 beats in a bar) I have to think this deserves a little extra attention. I admit that I'm pushing the iron idea because the Iron Sheik reference in the number 6 based on floor 12's clues.

    The Khroniker's 4, has a compass on it. Do the 4 directions fit the 4th floor in any symbolic way? I think they do. See the Yellow things, one yellow bowl at the top of the page, a yellow scarve on the coat rack, a yellow banana in the pantry and a yellow towel in the bath; all yellow items are sitting as if each in their own direction.

    Oranges are high in vitamin C. Bananas are high in Potassium aka K.
    Orange = F. Yellow = E. FE = Iron
    Beets are high in Iron.

    Is 4th floor the only even numbered floor WITH a donut? I'm embarking on a series of tests that string together secondary clues as related to objects that seem originate from another floor, like the beet in the toilet on 11th floor and possibly it's a beet hidden in 6th's toilet. Most attempts to make sense out of anything fail without knowing where to start. Perhaps 4th floor is the origin for unraveling a string of clues that lead to a definitive location for the 12.

    At the same time I wonder if this approach will explain why there are donuts in the first place. If would make for an important foothold if there exists a unifying purpose for the pink frosted donuts.

    This floor also has the only pink colored wall. (2nd floor has a couple walls that are just pinkish because there are red lights and beams.)

    I still haven't found a satisfactory answer to the question: why all the donuts everywhere?

    My best answer so far is that Scott Teplin is just an obsessed donut lover. (check out his blog and you'll see what I mean).

    On to a more important question: so why the big "5" in the corner of the room? This question has bothered me in the biggest way for the longest. Getting a satisfactory answer to this is my best hunch.

    I believe the mastermind responsible for stealing the 12 from Munari is also the source of the story about the two gorillas AND lifted a number of bananas from 4th floor in order to spread gorilla-ish clues around the building. This is also the person responsible for writing the 5.

    Amen brother! But if the tenants had done this, we'd have so fewer clues...and distractions.

    yes. It would be funny to see the perfect crime aided by some eco-friendly behavior.

    I know this is many months too late, but i have come to the conclusion that the state solution is determined by statehood from the letter 'G', the seventh letter, from the G-clef or more commonly known as a treble clef. The deduction that the notes are in a 7th interval is also workable, but a sloppy conclusion since there is ambiguity on exactly which notes they represent with the irregularity in the staff lines.
