    Default Could Clue #2 help solve the dream chant?

    I just came across this idea, trying to rearrange the dream chant.

    HIM MOO NLI
    KEM OON LIK
    EDR EAM ERO

    NEO NEN DIN
    GIC AUS EYO
    URP UZZ LIN (G - even code - one piece missing)

    I added the "him:" like from the 1st clue "hint:..."

    Each box could also contain the letters:
    1. HIMMOONLI
    2. KEMOONLIK
    3. EDREAMERO
    4. NEONENDIN
    5. GICAUSEYO
    6. URPUZZLIN (G - even code - one piece missing)

    Any thoughts on this or how to arrange each set of letters in the boxes?

    Just something new.

    I was thinking something similar. Bear with me as I throw ideas around.

    If you read the poem so that the second part of it is simply instructions (one on ending, I cause your puzzling), it could mean that "one" is the end of the 5x5 and the "e" is left over (thus, the ending). The "puzzling" bit is just as it sounds; we are all puzzled!

    Plus while I'm at it, as Perch pointed out, if you take the diamond pattern, it spells R-O-O-K. Don't know what it means but wanted to throw that out.

    M-O-O-N-L
    I-K-E-M-O
    O-N-L-I-K
    E-D-R-E-A
    M-E-R-O-N E <-- one piece nary

    I'm not sure what else to do at this point but I am convinced that Clue #2 was showing us how to decode at least one puzzle in the book. I wonder if there are other such grids in the book, when put together, spell out a sentence like in Clue #2.

    You can also do the same with the remainder of the poem starting with "on". You'll have the "g" leftover and those same corners spell out "yale".

    Interestingly, the "eg" leftover means "for example".
