Behold the ultimate Deusovi Honeypot!

I ran across the linked thread recently, and found it rather humorous - and inspiring! I've taken it upon myself to not only create the ultimate Deusovi Honeypot, but also create a connect wall to end all connect walls (including mine, which was frankly too easy).

So...

It's fairly straightforward: the connect wall contains 64 (yes, 64) words (or terms, if you're feeling picky).

There are 16 subcategories (yes, subcategories) of these 64 words (or terms, if you're feeling picky). All subcategories have 4 words (or terms, if...you know) in them.

The names of these sixteen subcategories can further grouped (yes, further grouped) into 4 supercategories.

These names of these four supercategories (yes, supercategories) can be grouped into a SUPER-DUPER CATEGORY, which is the final answer.

There is a solution, but it's a long ways away. @Deusovi

Without further ado, here's the wall.

Center               Gravel               Splatoon             Grass


Blue Devils          Celtics              Black Hole           Fixed


Infrequent           Curse                50%                  Thorax


Glasses              Pot                  Cannons              Poison


Simula (not a typo)  Gold                 Ruby                 Red


Rainbow              Mischievous          Spinach              House


Iris                 Water                177 lbs.             Stars


Andromeda            Octopus              Curl                 Ellington


Glaucoma             Walls                Evening              Parking Lot


Mean                 Necromancer          Unique               Tar


Turrets              Midnight             Tattoo               Electricity


Waist                Arthur Wellesley     Wizard               Moats


Sparse               Unmoving             Pluto                Between


Pupil                69.2 inches          Sorcerer             Unusual


Heat                 Supernova            Dark                 Quill


Uniform              of Edinburgh         Python               Burr

One of the super categories was probably too hard, so here it is, along with its categories:

Java - Duke(mascot) Oak(original name) Static(ally typed language) object-oriented

Partial solutions welcome if they're significant - at least three or four subcategory attempts, please.

And of course, it's best if the solution comes from the great one himself - but who knows, maybe you are the next great one?

    $\begingroup$ ...So what does this have to do with me, exactly? It just seems like clickbait. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jan 30 at 21:41
  • $\begingroup$ @Deusovi it took me over an hour to put together, and likely more to solve. The point (as I understood it) of the Deusovi Honeypot was to create an extremely long puzzle - hopefully also one that's good quality. I've given it my best effort, at least, regarding quality, and I believe I can vouch for its intensity and therefore length of time required to solve. I can remove the references to you if you think it's too clickbaity. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Jan 30 at 21:45

    $\begingroup$ Wasn't the Deusovi honeypot meant to be a hard-looking puzzle that's not hard, but impossible? $\endgroup$ – Zimonze Jan 30 at 22:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Zimonze shhhhh, you'll ruin it. ;) But really, I think that the point of the original honeypot was to see if one could prove it possible or impossible, and solving it if possible. Just throwing out an obviously impossible puzzle would be no fun. This one does have a solution (I couldn't bring myself to do otherwise, but it's lengthy enough that it's almost impossible to find, but not quite. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Jan 30 at 22:48

    $\begingroup$ @deepthought well, I think that this is the closest that I can get to a fractal connect-wall, since the 64 words lend themselves to so many possibilities, but now I really want to see if there's a way to make a "true" fractal connect wall...very engrossing...hey, maybe that should be the new honeypot - coming up with a honeypot! $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Jan 30 at 22:59
