1 Answer 1


The numbers in the circles

span from 1 to 118, a rather convenient range for converting letters to numbers. The diagram at the top sure seems to indicate the position of an atomic number in the periodic table, so converting those atomic numbers into their respective elements, we find:

largest circle: As Ge W V Fe
second-largest circle: Te Os O I Li
second-smallest circle: Cu Ne N Ra Y
smallest circle: Og Al Si K H

If we then apply that to the diagram,

some of it looks like gibberish:
the filled in diagram

But if you read along the diagonals, going out and then back in, from the start, you get OCTAGONAL SNOWFLAKE, which is exactly what this looks like!

  • $\begingroup$ All good 👍 Well done! Also, the title referred to the fact that rot13(bpgntbany fabjsynxrf) don't exist, at least naturally. $\endgroup$ Dec 22, 2021 at 15:58
