A note from @Mithrandir: I have given explicit permission for @Volatility to post this, and gave him the answer to encode. If you want to post one, ping @Mithrandir in chat and we'll talk.
You speak the answer. And of course, a trapdoor opens up and you fall.
You land on something soft, but everything is dark. Then a light flickers on, and you see that you're in a small space. On the far wall is a plaque:
Here's an enigmatic-puzzle for you, again. Are you good enough to solve it? You cannot pass until you do, as you very well know...it != pile_of(rhythms) jpg == (10**3)*moor judgement.oz == acuity.noise [thumb, palm, wren, fingers] == [trees, philosophy, trees]
Take a look at the paper the puzzle's painted on.
What's it worth to solve this puzzle?
Edit: Having received feedback from various people that the puzzle was severely underclued, I have decided to modify it to make it (hopefully) more accessible. Apologies to anyone who spent a lot of time on the previous version(s), whose difficulty I grossly underestimated.
