Quandary Actuated Perpetually
A very difficult puzzle.
Although, it is not always what one desires, it keeps you safe.
How am I able to find the source of all this chaos surrounding me? After all, even I am not able to find how one must begin. The beginning of the cycle, or should I say square, no, cube, of all that comes and goes are the faces of the shadows within.
The beginning of the difference of the one above and the one at level could be the answer. Yet, I should count 5 more after it.
Corrected time and time again, who knew it would always come to me?
Shall I search for something that appears not twice but once? Shall the answer be one that precedes and one that is ahead? I shall search yet again.
Being not behind, but _____, subtract a, then find the whole ÷ 4
