enter image description here

Prefix + Infix + Suffix

I will post hints as time goes on.

Hint 1:

You will have to think more abstractly than what is literally in the pictures.

Hint 2:

Its not about the stones. Its about the abstract idea that is associated with them.

Hint 3:

EK

Hint 4:

The Stones represent an act often performed by mindful people.

Hint 5:

Could the answer be

STACK EXCHANGE?

Prefix:

STACK because the Zen stones are being stacked.

Infix:

EX. As the element is an isotope of Hydrogen (H), it is literally ex-Hydrogen.

Suffix:

CHANGE. The infinite series changes sign (positive, negative, positive, negative, ...)


Title:

Riley Rebus is a calm man

The Zen stones refer to calmness.

"Tritium" sounds like tranquility.

"Equation" sounds like equable.

$$$$

Hints:

  1. You will have to think more abstractly than what is literally in the pictures.

Most of the pictures refer to how they sound like (and the prefix has quite nothing to do with Zen stones).

  1. It's not about the stones; It's about the abstract idea that is associated with them.

True. They are stacked.

  1. EK

What does K "look like"? It looks like an X. EK looks like EX. Also, the phrase "Stack Exchange" has EK in it, but backwards (Stack Exchange).

  1. The Stones represent an act often performed by mindful people.

To be mindful means to be aware, and you are aware of more of your surroundings if it is neat and organised. Stacking objects (like books) often creates such a surrounding. "Stacking" also describes an action that of which can be performed.

  1. XXXx Xx XXXXx

STACK EXCHANGE

    $\begingroup$ I actually thought of this answer yesterday because of the stones, but couldn't explain the rest. Good to see someone who can explain this :). Let's hope it is correct. $\endgroup$ – Mixxiphoid Sep 11 '18 at 7:06

Partial:

For the suffix:

With a little help from Wolfram Alpha I found that the above equation is actually $\sin(x)$. So I guess the suffix = sin. Or it could be something like nth or ith because the equation is an infinite sum and nth or ith referrs to nth element.

For the infix:

The tritium is one of the hydrogen's isotopes. I would place my bet on iso. So infix = iso.

For the prefix:

The image depicts zen stones; based on the hints it must be something to do with soul or harmony.

After the latest hints, etc and also considering the puzzle title I'm totally confused. Could it be something like:

Harmonising? It starts with har(mony) - that picture sure looks peaceful. It contains (sort of) sin in the end. But where is the relation to tritium and to the girl from the title?

    $\begingroup$ Ill post this as a hint, While they are called zen stones. They can often have another name. $\endgroup$ – Dylan Sep 10 '18 at 13:33

    $\begingroup$ These specific stone formation would go by the name ROT13: "Fuvagnv" AFAIK. Don't see where that helps, though. $\endgroup$ – Karsten Köpnick Sep 10 '18 at 13:38

    $\begingroup$ These are called shintai stones in Japanese if that's any help. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Sep 10 '18 at 13:40

    $\begingroup$ @Dylan Then I would say STACKed stones $\endgroup$ – stack reader Sep 10 '18 at 13:45

    $\begingroup$ Stacked stones can also be a CAIRN (ie Karen?) but I might be off. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 10 '18 at 13:46
