    Fibonacci

    Hi everyone,

    I, and many others, have been trying to solve a riddle within the trials hd arcade game for the past 2 years. This riddle consists of many hidden messages that can somehow be linked together. I added a link that portraits the Fibonacci sequence. It is, however, unclear to us what the dots underneath the sequence mean. We know that the dots and the Fibonacci sequence are connected, but are unnable to find a clear link. We are thinking in the direction of the constant e.

    Any thoughts?

    Kind regards,

    Kobe.

    Friend, the box looks very similar to the classic picture drawn for the golden ratio, namely this one:





    Which is related to the Fibonacci sequence by Binet's formula

    It seems that thats excatly what it is. The dots underneath it, however, remain to be solved.

    On the face of it, these dots don't mean anything to me.

    I looked up the sequence "1,1,1,4" at Sloane's OEIS: 1,1,1,4 - OEIS

    The only straightforward results are that the sequence is:

    - The entries of Pascal's triangle squared.

    - The largest square less than n (n=1,2,3,4).

    - The tetranacci numbers: 1,1,1,1,4,7,13,... (but there's a 1 too many to begin with).

    I also looked up the sequence, where I included the word "Fibonacci", which gave me these results: 1,1,1,4 fibonacci - OEIS

    The position of the dots probably means something though, and maybe none of the suggestions above work out for the reason that the number of terms in the sequence 1, 1, 1, 4 does not coincide with the number of squares in the picture.

    Why do you suspect it has something to do with e?

    hey, thanks for the reply. I believe the sequence shown goes as follows: 0,1,1,3,5,8,13,21,34... In the picture it adds up to 8.

    Now and then the developpers give hits as how to solve the puzzles. Yesterday i mentioned to them that i had seaked help at a math forum and they decided to provide an extra clue.

    They said that: 'there is a dot that represents 1 and there is...' , 'dot is 1, and empty space in nothing is?' Underneath it is a picture of the book 'Zero: the biography of a dangerous idea' whritten by Charles Seife. Wich, as far as i can see, is a somewhat controvercial book on mathematics.

    If a dot stands for 1 and a space stands for 0, then the row of dots becomes 10101001111, which is the binary representation of the number 1359. Does that number have any significance in the context of the game?

    Im not sure 1359 is relevant. To give you guys an idea of other solved puzzles that could hopefully be linked to this one, the clues point to Leonardo Da Vinci, the Golden Section, the evolutionary tree by Charles Darwin, ancient map making (piri reis map), the golden record plate withing the voyager spaceshuttle... and so on

    In my first post i directed you to a wiki link where you find a summary of all significant progress made so far.
