    $\begingroup$ I have a feeling the answer is “out of the box” or something along those lines, but can’t prove it… +1. $\endgroup$

I solved this puzzle by going...

in four different directions !

Daniel S already solved the first part so we just needed to solve the bottom part :

The [] can be replaced with 0 and the | can be replaced with 1. So we have :

01101110101110110
01000110101000001010111010
01100000000101000010001000001
010001010010010100111010
0101011110010001001101110111

And the next step :

We can convert the binary numbers to decimal numbers :

56694
18514618
201491521
4531514
91820919

To get letters :

We put spaces in the right places and convert the numbers to letters with a1z26 :

EFFID
RENFR
TNIOU
DECON
IRTIS

By using the path found by Daniel S, we have the answer :

IN FOUR DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS

I'm not sure

Of the significance of the Square brackets and Pipes

...but I solved this puzzle by going.....

from the centre square according to the direction indicated by the colour: URDRUULLLLDRDLDDRURDRURDR (or perhaps NESENNWWWWSESWSSENESENESE) before exiting to the yellow triangle.

The title

May be an indication that the solution is a Hamiltonian path

  • $\begingroup$ Nice job. You got the first part. Once you figure out how to interpret the bottom part of the puzzle ("[ ]" and "|") you'll find the specific phrase that's missing. $\endgroup$ Mar 23, 2023 at 14:57
