# ARG Puzzle Gate 15 Help

Me and my group (yes I'm in a group trying to solve this) are currently working on an ARG puzzle and we are stuck. The first image/clue to the entire puzzle is what is seen below. The creator of this puzzle said that this entire image was math related. We are stumped as all hell. THE IMAGES NAME IS LetterLattice.PNG

We are completely stuck with it. If you want, I can provide the hints that were given to us by the puzzle maker. We have tried many different forms of photoshopping the image. We also see the Red R and the words "RABBITHOLE", "REDHERRING" and "THISISNTITEITHER".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We've been on this for about 2 hours now and have nothing.

HINTS:

Hint 1 for Gate 15: The wordsearch isn't all the info.

• Do you happen to have the letters on this imnage in radable form (txt file)? I don't want to type all of these by hand – yunzen Jan 29 at 9:29
• @yunzen I used automatic text recognition, there might be flaws: pastebin.com/PsmnZDdX – Jishin Noben Jan 29 at 20:56
• The second line looks like it might lead to bit.ly/isthismath . There might be something useful there. – shoover Sep 29 at 2:32
