## Are the seeds on page 77 part of the Ant solution

I have rattled the old brain on if the seeds play a role in the solution. Alot of ppl want to try to match them up and create something from that. I don't think that is the right approach- Look very closely at the seeds, If you notice all the seeds can be placed in five catagories based on looking the same. For example start at the flower itself with one seed starting its way out, now look up the page two seeds- you will see another that looks just like the one at the bottom of the page. I've gone through and you can create five catagories with 12, 8, 5, 4, and 3 seeds in each group. This gives you a total of 32 seeds, there are two additonal seeds that are in the green and white swirls that do not match each other and do not match any other catagory. I am inclined to throw those out, as they have no black lines within them and do not match anything else... Ok thats what I know. Now someone smarter than me should figure out what all this means

2. I am a believer that the seeds can be put into 5 categories based on stem/fluff position. up/left up/right down/left down/right & center, and that they should be put into pairs to form the coordinates for the 5x5. BUT, I am always looking at new approaches. I posted a more detailed idea on ATT and I am trying to spark some interest in this puzzle.
Doesn't seem like to many people focus on this one. I figured this to be somewhat easy to solve based on the dollar value of the gem. Let's put our heads together!

3. you guys should go check out the topic in the Page 77 forum. There is an ongoing discussion about the seeds.

4. I have been working on the dandelion seeds for a couple days using one of those 5x5 grid generators that spits out every possible combination. So it doesn't really matter what order you put the numbers in for the grid, you'll get every combination anyway. So, with that said, I'm not sure I went in the right direction when I did this, but I tried pairing up the seeds in different combinations, trying to go in a clockwise direction and also counterclockwise. One of the ouputs from a program was SPBELLGOFIG
(golfing?) something, i forget the last few letters. I did a google and all I could find was a park in Tennessee called Montgomery Bell that has a golf course, so that's as far as I've gotten with it.
