Think of the rules involved!

Probably overthought again but John Tukey? If not is that the right kind of connection?

Overthinking it.

  1. Find a binary number you want to convert. We'll use this as an example: 101010.
  2. Multiply each binary digit by two to the power of its place number. Remember, binary is read from right to left. The rightmost place number being zero.
  3. Add all the results together. Let's go from right to left.

We'll look at them together then we'll take them apart. Adding up the total of a love, that's true.

I don’t think he’s just looking for an answer in binary? Unless it’s the code that is to be put on the new note?

Unless the number once worked out spells something out?

True “adding up the total of a love” ?

I will have to come up with a new one, as now its getting solved via some big assistance from someone who got told the answer it is going to become far too easy and I wanted to leave it sat here unsolved, perhaps adding a prize after some days.

Prize ? I’d want a fudging noble one for solving one of your riddles denman

Spoiler

 

So just to break it down further now as its pretty much already been spelt out. The sequence is in groups of 5 with the numbers being divisible by 8/16/32/64/128 (that is where all the hints about Turing, 8bit, binary, power of 2 were heading). In order to establish the groups of 5 it is a bit of guess work, plus some common sense, there is the trend of the numbers increasing in groups of 5 if read in order (the layout of the numbers in the original post is irrelevant/merely a diversion). Common sense would tell you 8/16/32, 8/16/32/64, 8/16/32/64/128/256 and so on aren't going to fit if we start to think of trying to convert them to letters. Anyway we end up with the following;

 

40  224  224  896  1536  / 8/16/32/64/128

8  400  672  576  128  / 8/16/32/64/128

72  240  160  1280  2304  / 8/16/32/64/128

112  192  416  1152  1536  / 8/16/32/64/128

128  272 160  320  128  / 8/16/32/64/128

40  208  32  1152  1536  / 8/16/32/64/128

40  192  640  1408  2560  / 8/16/32/64/128

120  80  160  960  2944  / 8/16/32/64/128

112  336  672  64  1664  / 8/16/32/64/128

96  256  128  64  1920  / 8/16/32/64/128

144  32  576  64  896  / 8/16/32/64/128

8  80  480  / 8/16/32

 

Thats leads us onto something like this;

 

5 14 7 14 12 1 25 21 9 1 9 15 5 20 18 14 12 13 18 12 16 17 5 5 1 5 13 1 18 12 5 12 20 22 20 5 15 5 15 23 14 21 21 1 13 12 16 4 1 15 18 2 18 1 1 7 5 15

 

Very simply we can convert the above using the following;

 

A1 B2 C3 D4 E5 F6 G7 H8 I9 J10 K11 L12 M13 N14 O15 P16 Q17 R18 S19 T20 U21 V22 W23 X24 Y25 Z26

 

So that leads us onto;

 

pmwllqlleaapotnaemlineuenraeboegatayadvereguomurrolaeitonr  (Not actually in order with the code, I had randomised them after saving)

 

So at this stage, we have now converted our wall of numbers into what looks to be a place in Wales. However as the initial clue stated we are thinking on the theme of colours. Of course we don't exactly know what we are looking for so a bit of initial guess work is in order, but we are looking for 10 colours among those 58 letters. Of course using all 58 letters. My approach would be to eliminate the less frequently used letters initially. So we have 1 x Q, 1 x Y, 1 x V, 1 x W. So we start to think of colours that feature these letters;

 

turQuoise

aQuamarine

Violet

Veridian

Mauve

Lavender

Amethyst,

Yellow,

Cyan

Gray

Ivory

White,

Yellow

Periwinkle

 

There is maybe more than that, anyway that just leads onto a section of Stage 2 that perhaps requires a healthy dosage of luck, alongside gut feeling, instinct and observation. Of course it would help if you're fantastic at anagrams and other word games. I was going to provide further code to break that would have led onto at least half of the answers being provided in the form of Hexcode so it was going to be a bit easier than this, assuming you were able to break the clue code to obtain the hexcode. I won't use that particular code in this solution reply as I may use it again in another edition instead.

 

pmwlllleapotnaemlineenraeboegtayadvereguourrolto

 

Aquamarine

 

pmlleapotnaemlineenraebegtaadvreguourrolto

 

Yellow

 

pmlaptnaemlneenraebegaadreguourrolto

 

Violet

 

mlatnaemlneenraebegaadrgouroto

 

Purple

 

lnemlneeraebaadrgouroto

 

Magenta

 

lneleeebaadrgourt

 

Maroon

 

leleebadurt

 

Orange

 

elebdur

 

Teal

 

edr

 

Blue

 

And that leaves us with Red.

 

So the correct answer was;

aquamarine red purple yellow magenta teal orange blue violet maroon

 

But you all knew that, right?

 

 

 

Full solution.

No fuckers getting the answer next time! I will stick a bounty on top of it and if you want to look at it, can't do it and its bothering you, tough shit!
