I created the puzzle by myself.

I made another image to illustrate the encoding better (all the images were generated by a Python program I wrote and I did not do any editing)

Irrelevant information:

I just updated the function so that the bytes can be arranged in a circular fashion:

1 Answer 1

  1. Looking at the "Hello" and "World" words, we see that:

The lime circle is present only in lowercase letters. The same also happens in "Python". The yellow-green-cyan-blue pattern repeats twice in "Hello", representing the "l".

  1. In "Hello, World", we see that:

It is the concatenation of "Hello" and "World", with just three colored circles in the middle, which would be the comma and the space.

  1. Further, we can note that:

"o" in the end of "Hello" would have six colored circles.

  1. It is reasonably to guess that:

Each octet of circles encodes a letter and represents a byte. Hence, each circle is a bit.

  1. Then:

Comparing the "o" and the "n" from Python, the magenta circle is the least significant bit.

  1. Throwing up the bit values and see where they the order is:

Magenta (least significant), Purple, Blue, Cyan, Green, Lime, Yellow-orange, Red (most significant).

  1. Thus:

This perfectly matches the ASCII table.

  1. Then, the message is:
