No. 812426 ID: ba506f

you two can wonder around right? or are you stuck to just this panel? because if you can move around I feel like those arrows on the bottom tell you where to go. Because if I'm reading it right then you need to go right, up, down, right, down

unless you can't leave and those symbols are meant for the buttons behind Phymosa. In which case my best guess is middle, top, bottom, middle, bottom. That's my guess anyways.

No. 812506 ID: 3fc720

Here's a theory: For convenience, let's call the wall with the equation "Front Wall". Suppose the first arrow indicates that we need to follow the wall past three turns, or to the "Right Wall". Specifically, there might be something in the corner of the room, but for now we'll indicate the symbol on the "Right Wall". Then the triangle has enough space to put something in it, like an operation. Down indicates "Down Wall", but then the fourth symbol is interesting. It's a double, so we could indicate that means a special operation, like natural log or natural exponential has been operated on it. Finally, the last symbol would represent another operator or possibly a number.

Our first task would be to determine what operations are legal (no dividing by zero, no square-rooting a negative number unless the answer was in imaginary which I highly doubt given the lack of indication), and the second would be to solve the equation.

Hm.

:kittyaicon: ; Y'know they were not kidding when they said overthinking is deadly. It literally just says 'aries' in wingdings 3 guys. Like, that's it.

:kittyaicon: ; Okay so for reference, here's aaaaaaaaall the symbols on the walls. There's one on each wall, cause there are 4 walls. Obviously. The uh... wingdings 3 underneath the aries sign literally just says 'aries' but I doubt that it'd be wingdings 3 for no reason. That one's all directions, right? maybe something to do with aries and directions. I dunno. As for the other 4 symbols, like 900% sure they're just letters. Dunno what though.

All of those symbols were translated. And the three vertical dots is 's', not 'i'.

Having trouble finding any direct associations with direction but Aries is the first sign of the zodiac so I assume we want to do something with the north wall.

Aries is a "cardinal" sign that takes up the first 30 degrees of the sky. The Sun's passage through (Aries) which begins the spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in the southern hemisphere.

Seems more a time thing.

I think we should focus more on North South East and West and the arrows...
>>
No. 812554 ID: ace108

Wait, think I might have it. Look at >>812461.
We may need to move one corner so it matches up in a way that when facing each corner is in its proper space. North, South, East, West. As marked by the walls. Maybe thats why everything is in arrows?

The answer was the symbols on the 4 walls all stood for North, South, East, and West.

The wingdings spelled out "Aries" but they were also used as arrows to tell us the correct order for the answer.

So, Right, Up, Down, Right, Down, gives us the answer. Using those with the compass directions, gives us the answer: East, North, South, East, South.
