    I'm channeling all of my good energy towards somebody solving this chapter. At this point, that is all I can offer.

    Mills,

    I dropped by and caught up on posts, and I saw what you said about five occurrences of a question being answered by a question. Check to verify that because I REALLY like that idea.

    'Both questions must be answered'.
    The other solutions end with some variant of 'Q'--the question mark might be this solution's version of 'Q'.
    'Riddle me this, riddle me that, the riddles are where it's at'.

    Try developing a complete A to Z substitution alphabet using the letters from the questions.

    Good luck!

    Doc

    Outstanding, clever, & wise choices of words, those are my impression about this chapter.
    Just for one example: "sequence" & "answer" are used alternately in FB clues and my guess is: "sequence" could be read as C4Q12 while "answer" is exact.
    There are a lot more in the book & FB clues.

    Doc, I think there are an unusual amount of questions in the chapter text between Mick and Nadine... I don't have my book on me right now but if I remember correctly in the very last paragraph Mick even asks three consecutive questions to some voice in his head or something...

    "what? when will I get out of here? who said I want to?"

    or something along those lines.

    I'm pretty sure it was five times that a question was answered with a question, I can't say 100% though at the moment.

    yes that is a good sentence. although I found I could go nowhere with it. Its nice to see a more active discussion going on with this chapter.


    The problem with the "five" clue is that there are probably many things that happen five times within the chapter. Id focus on other clues and then make the five clue fit.

    Hey folks... one more thing... again don't have my book on me so I can't confirm but...

    I believe there is a sequence of dialogue between Mick and Nadine where there is a "double" question answered with a question...

    If I remember correctly it's something like the following...

    blah blah blah.
    So?
    what, blah blah?
    So?
    blah blah blah

    might be worth looking into, the number 2 apparently is important in this chapter, two "so?'s" and "So" is two letters. That and all the clues pointing to "questions" or "riddles" being important...

    Again, just a thought... I will verify the accuracy later tonight when I have my book.

    I haven't submitted a sequence for a long, long time but I might take a stab tonight.

    Good luck everyone!

    "To start skip over and go back":

    Option A: "Start ALPHA by skipping over, THEN for omega go back" (i.e. alpha could go forwards)

    OR

    Option B: "Start Alpha by skipping over AND going back" (i.e. alpha definitely goes backwards)

    OR

    Option C: "To (TWO -- sequence 2) start, skip over and go back (i.e. this clue ONLY talks about omega)"

    This clue has frustrated me the most of any of them I think because it's impossible to tell whether THEN is turning this into a clue that is actually talking about more than one sequence or not.

    I thought I had worked out what direction all the sequences go from the book, but the FB clues seem to contradict what appears to me to be in the original intended solution.

    Anyone out there actually know for sure what direction the sequences go?

    two more notes... TWO I say, lol

    Pg.68 a question is cut off short "You mean that woman I-"
    Pg.75 a question is cut off short "What is-"

    Maybe those dashes are a start and end point. After the first dash would be the letter J as in "You mean that woman I-J" and then there is the "S" as in "What iS-"

    J to S = 10 letters, maybe a sequence.
