I have here a simple binary-like pattern, consisting of crosses (X) and circles (O).
O X X O X O O X O X O X X X X O O O X X O O X O O X O O X O O O O O X X X O X X O X X X X O X O O O O X X O O X O X X O O X O O X O X O X X O X O X O O X X O X O
There is, however, a hidden sequence that makes the pattern complete when it is orientated in a different way. So, what is this missing sequence?
HINTS (Level 1):
When the pattern is orientated in this "different way", each sequence is unique. Meaning, there should be no repeats.
The missing sequence should fit snuggly "in the middle" of the new orientation.
The missing sequence is nine (9) characters long.
The number 14 should appear a lot… so should the number 42. But 14 is more important.
HINTS (Level 2):
Did I say "long"? I never said the sequence was linear, did I?
Perhaps if we played a different game, the pattern would make some more sense?
"Unique" should suggest the current pattern has some overlap.
HINTS (Level 3):
There are more crosses than circles in the hidden sequence.
This new orientation relies on a diagram we all should have used at least once in our lifetime... I mean, it's quite logical! Or is it plausible?
