By the way, I had mentioned on the p. 11 thread recently, that quite a few methods of hiding information are shown on p. 11.

One deals with reflections. The EYE KEY is shown as the breakdown of the 6 letters by the dashes below, separated by the "+"

E + YEKEY

where YEKEY is the relfective (symmetrical) part.

Speaking of PART, and returning to p. 23, the reflection of TRAP on the oar.

TRAP
PART

I have no idea what any of this means?

For anyone one of us to understand this to see the answer,

think 4 + any one, 1 = 2 + c (see), solve for c, this is a , 42 is a coordinate

2. Can you give more detail on why you are using the phrase that you did, to generate the 42? Is it hidden in the book? I was able to find the 42 as a coordinate also, and it seems to match part of the path I am following, from information in the book.

Seriously, I just threw a phrase out there

"For anyone one of us to understand this to see the answer"

And then I start interpreting things, 4=for, any one="1", "to see"=2c

think 4 + any one, 1 = 2 + c (see), solve for c, this is a , 42 is a coordinate

See, 4 + 1 = 2 + c, c equals 3 then.

Or 4 + x = 2 + c, solve for x and c, make x and c null, you get 4=2, 42

I think I grabbed 42 out of your post somewhere, I don't know, I just have no idea what you're talking about most of the time:

"The lobsterman is not constructed correctly, per se (the torso, hat, face, etc.), but by using reflection, he can be made to smile."

Or

"By the way, I had mentioned on the p. 11 thread recently, that quite a few methods of hiding information are shown on p. 11.

"

I have no idea what that means? Is it just me? Somebody enlighten me, please, maybe I'm dumb. I have no idea what this means:

or this

"The EYE KEY is shown as the breakdown of the 6 letters by the dashes below, separated by the "+"

Whaaat?

4. Okay, thanks. I thought the phrase was probably not from the book, just checking.

To just address one of your points: Page 11 is very busy, and contains various codes. I think the " _+ _ _ _ _ _ " near the EYE and KEY are related, and being used to convey one of the types of codes.

"Speaking of PART, and returning to p. 23, the reflection of TRAP on the oar.

TRAP
PART"

that's not a reflection, like a mirror. TRAP in a mirror is backwards, TЯAꟼ. That's just the word spelled backwards. And the word TRAP isn't actually there. Why just TRAP? Why not LOBSTER? The mirror is RETSBOL.

I think the " _+ _ _ _ _ _ " near the EYE and KEY are related, and being used to convey one of the types of codes.
What is the code, though? We end up with

EYEKEY
and
TRAP/PART

and small sections of words that may spell something backwards. How does this solve the puzzle?

Also

"The lobsterman is not constructed correctly, per se (the torso, hat, face, etc.), but by using reflection, he can be made to smile."

What does this mean? You don't like Pel's art? It's not painted well?

"by using reflection, he can be made to smile."

I'm sure you can.

Flip it the right way and he can have eyes on his forehead. EYES on FOREHEAD can be read as
EYES
4

HEAD mirrored is DAEH. The only letter missing is T, and you get "DEATH". Where does the T come from? "RETSBOL"

I do like Pel's art, that's the point. The image is painted well, for it's purpose.

If you don't want to use reflection on the reflection page, that's fine.

You're missing the point about the way the images are linked together.

8. bnut,

What's your explanation for why Pel went to the trouble to paint the reflection on the oar?

Because he painted a picture, kinda realistic?

And the puzzle solution is somewhere else?

what's your explanation for why you haven't solved the puzzle yet, if you have all the codes down, and know which figures are not done correctly?

The puzzle solution is in a lot of places. You haven't answered my question about the reflection, you deflected. You are not working with material from the puzzle, you are providing no alternate explanations.

I haven't figured it all out. This is a forum for discussion, and sharing ideas. My ideas may be right or wrong, but it would be more positive to the forum if you would offer alternate ideas that can be used to work the puzzle.
