With the bare minimal force required to not drop it, Rita If there were different universes, It is trivial to show that, in fact, nothing happens. So Rita proves Joe's conjecture is false. Joe might argue that Law 7, or Rita's grip itself, still explains this.

So the point here seems to be to treat each of the snake's cryptic utterances as leading to and then combine these to get The first set: which presumably indicates The second: leading us to Now, there are some degrees (ha!) of freedom here because In that case I get to

If cuts are allowed to meet the perimeter between the start and end, as in Peregrine Rook's answer, the best you can do is You can't do it with fewer. Of course, if cuts aren't allowed to hit the perimeter in between (and I suspect that is the intended interpretation), Deusovi's answer is correct.

Well, the first stage seems clear enough: So: I am not sure yet what comes next -- maybe it involves In TSL chat, Sconibulus cunningly observes (and OP seems to imply this is the correct next step) that And then, with a bit of a nudge from OP in TSL chat, Sid noticed that which is surely the intended answer. It happens that which (see, again, TSL chat)...

I'm going with I've provided the link between man and machine. In rivers and trees, respectively, I can be seen. I've been key in measuring the speed of light. The Pacific Ocean is where I developed flight. To measure current flux, I gave my label. I once was a particle, but my matter became unstable.

This answer was perfectly valid before the edit to the question which added rule #10, nullifying this method. This mainly takes advantage of Rule 6: We cannot exchange matter into these universes because for every one particle that attempts to cross the threshhold, exactly one congruent particle meets it at the barrier. Rita picks up (and uses) ...

Original solution by YowE3K   (who later turned it into this community wiki) This isn't an answer to the exact question, but the following link is to an image that I thought was worth looking at anyway: And @justhalf found another image which looks even more like the one in the question, except rotated 90 degrees: I'm thinking that the actual ...
