I made another comment about having rows. Last post, third page.

Sorry if the old man's talking too fast for you.  :tongue:

I think the pattern has to do with the pattern of the tiles on the floor...

I'm guessing N-E-S-W means North East South West.
Does that sound right to you guys?

Ooh! Sheldon! I love your girlfriend! Look what we've found! What an interesting map! Obviously, it looks like it's of the tiles in this room... It makes me wonder why there's numbers and x's and question marks...

Johnson, come here, take a look at this! Any thing you know that could help us out?

Alright, if they have something to do with pulleys, one position or two has got to do the trick.

Darn, I'm arrogant. :sceptic:

*'d like to finally move the arms into the outward position, as if reaching out to give you a hug*

If nothing happens, there has to be somethign else to these annoying pulleys that are in every wall, behind every interesting object.  :sceptic:

Hey! Look! There's a pulley behind that rose bush! We better move around it's branches!  :wacko: Come on, bushy, I need a hug!

I'd like to take one of the loose grey pieces and put it in the 'missing piece' spot next to the back left corner of the statue. I've mapped out the colours of the floor as well as can be seen from the various angles I've viewed, but haven't figure out the significance of the various other markings yet. I'd like a nice map with the colours filled in... :wub:

General observation: All of the numbered spots are grey. The 2 upper red x's are reddish brown, and the central ? is tan. The other ? and red x are impossible to see thus far.

*figured

Hey - this reminds me of the kiddie menus at Denny's.  Look, if we connect these lines and these blocks, it spells DEMONS.  Oops, my bad - that was BACON N EGGS.  I was never good at these sorts of puzzles. :blush:

Just some observations I'm trying to analyze.

16 total bricks, 4 in each color (set)
Each set has two open (with holes), two capped/closed

From the map:

8 shaded around the room
9 forming a square in the middle
1 missing
1 #1
2 #2s
2 ?s
3 Red checks

Very interesting indeed.  What to make of this?

EDIT: additional observation...

N-E-S-W forms a square as in the rotation of a clock (12 o'clock, 3, 6, 9)

I don't think I can, but I'll try.

I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE ONE OF THE SPARE GREY PIECES THAT IS SITTING IN THE PILE AND PLACE IT IN THE OPENING LEFT BY THE MISSING PIECE IN THE GREY SQUARE AT THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BASE OF THE STATUE. *points at the square on the map, which he wouldn't have to do given that this is real life and he has just picked up the piece and placed it in the spot he intends*

I would like to pick up a few of the stones/blocks.  Do they seem to have different weights? (some heavier than others?)  Are same-color blocks the same weight?

Not sure if you answered this, but I see that some have holes.  Do these holes allign with any of the tiles/bricks on the floor?

It looks like there is a tile missing (the dark grey spot four squares to the right of the pillar). I would like to examine the spot.

(I meant the headlight bricks)

Let's try this.  I would like to match the map with the actual room to identify the colors of each marked square on the map ("1", "2s", "Xs", & ?).  (I must admit that I'm having a hard time distinguishing the colors in the first "Red Moon" picture).  

If you allow me to do this, I'd like to take each of the "headlight" bricks (that have tiles) and place them in the squares in accordance with the colors on the map (1, 2s, Xs, & ?).

I see that the statues are the shaded blocks (one missing in the right (East) side of the room), and the four center shaded areas are the columns.

Let's see if this does anything, and we will have to play with that missing piece.

I would like to investigate one of those X tiles. I'll start with the brown one two to the right of center of the main altar. If the tile is loose in any way I'd like to see what's under it, otherwise I'd like to stand on it until someone has a better idea.

Given the latest view, this is as close as I can get to actually fulfilling what we keep requesting, a map with the colours of the tiles, unobscured by statue and shadow.

I'd like to take two of the dark grey stones (headlights w/ tiles) and place them on top of the nearest dark grey tile on the floor (the one on the far South side of the room marked with a 2).  If two doesn't fill the square, I'll try more.  Can they be pushed down into the floor?

I can't guarantee it's accuracy, things get a little murky in spots.

Now... I think I'd like to visit the #1 spot and see if it's loose and hiding anything or can be pressed in some way.

With the help of another member of our tour, I would like to simultaneously stand on one of the dark grey spots on the floor/map marked 2.

I am also worried that the three spots marked "red X" are booby trapped so I would suggest we don't stand on those just yet.
