  • full browser flash with hovering spheres

puzzle 7
  • the large sphere, instead of spinning and zooming, now releases the same set of 8 symbols as the 1st and 3rd puzzles, which rotate slowly around the orb.

  3. lostpedian's deduction (actual source unknown)


puzzle 6b - Ararat
  • the oculus spins and retracts, while a glowing yellow earth map expands from its surface and fills the window, solidifying
  • while sine waves float from top to bottom, 6 points appear around the map, glowing in time with the waves' connections, and 3 pairs of symbols appear, before returning to the rune button puzzle (same layout as puzzle #5)
