Note: OP messed up the orientation of a NUMPAD, so the intended orientation is stated as follows:

123
456
789
0


Hint:

This is another color-blind friendly puzzle.

Each number is seen as a direction, e.g. 1 means left up, 2 means up, etc.

Partial solutions and ideas are welcome in either the comment section or the answer section.

• Is there an error with the 146 numbers shouldn’t it be 144??

• I presume you wanted it to be a square number in terms of the number of digits

New user here, please tell me if I'm posting correctly.

Multiply the primes in each line; this gives a number which we can map to the grid as follows: start at the upper left, then using the 5 as the current position, use the next key to determine the next character in the string. Combine the answers for every line.

However this gives

508330002626332626340011110011314768000633212694324421393836700014733144104921370684878666433279340386532223170799624622422332001601 which goes out of bounds at character 55 or so. I had to make two changes to the string to make the final answer make sense,

and after doing that, we get

508330002626332626340011110011314768000633212694324424393836700014733144104921370684678666433279340386532223170799624622422332001601 which gives HAVE.YOU.EVER.WONDERED.WHY.I.LOVE.TEN.BY.TEN.GRIDS.SO.MUCH?.I.JUST.THINK.IT.IS.SO.ELEGANT.THAT.I.AM.ADDICTED.TO.IT!.I.HATE.NUMPADS!.
