Puzzling... Isn't It !!!!! ???
    #1816822 - 08/15/03 02:02 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

So...  you want to expand your mind.. eh?  Some sort of Dimension-Type Expansion I do believe...

Alright then... Let's see what kind of potential you have ... 


Here is the Puzzle I present to you..


Take a piece of blank paper.  On it draw THREE "X's" and THREE "O's" as follows:



      X              X              X



    O              O              O




Draw that in the MIDDLE of the page.




Now,  draw a line extending from every "X"  that connects to EACH of the "O's"...  You CANNOT OVERLAP ANY OF THE LINES !!!!!!!


So, for illustration purposes, the beginnings of the solution would be three lines extending from the first "X"...  touching all of the "O's"  independantly.  Now do so for the remaining "X's".





10  Shrooms for the FIRST ONE to supply the answer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





AND...  Please note...  The answer IS NOT:  "There is NO solution !"



For those of you who do not have scanners,  please write the steps out to your answer VERY CLEARLY !!!!


I do not have a scanner, I will walk you through the answer... 
Let us give a deadling of SEVEN days starting today...  Upon the Octave day, I will intervene.

That is, unless someone has the potential...





* If you require some sort of clarification to the question, please... ask. *

GOOD LUCK !!!!

Nope, not at all. Just don't have time right now, hehe.
Maybe later, but for now, I'll just watch. I think I might now where it leads, anyways...

Fair enough... you have seven days to ponder about it.

Same question - must they be straight lines?
Is the field in which the items are placed the type that sends things that enter one side to the exact opposite side - to keep the travels continuous?

Methinks I got it [Re: Deiymiyan]
    #1817105 - 08/15/03 03:32 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

At first I was tempted to simply draw a circle that passed through all six objects, but then you specifically 'started us out' in a way that forces us to use not one line (as was stated in the beginning) but rather a different line for each connection. So I re-worked my idea a bit and came up with a new one that works something like this:



Pardon the rude sketch...perhaps an explanation is in order:
The first and last X make fairly straightforeword connections (one from the top, the other from the bottom) while the middle X seemingly has a single line the skewers right through the center of the Os...but seeing as this is obviously against the rules, it isn't quite that. You see, it's actually multiple lines that lie within alternate realities that just to happen to give the illusion of a single line when forced to be viewed all at the same time...three lines not one.
(/me wonders if anyone's gonna buy that)
(/otherme shut up you)

By using a sphere straight lines become curved... I guess my question is kind of the same as your.

Probably have to fold the paper, use curved lines, or have the lines wrap around. I cant do it following the implied rules.

One solution is to draw the O's really big, and the X's really small.

the solution better not be something lame like folding the paper. I can tell you that it's impossible to do in a 2 dimensional plane without crossing lines, so I figure there's some trick involved.

"Is it ok if I use a sphere instead of a sheet of paper?"
-------------------------

Although the question didn't state that, make a diagram or explain your solution in text form...  I'd be interested to see where you are going with that !

If it sounds good, I'll award 10 for it also. 
=================


"do they have to be straight lines?"
-------------------------

Mystical_Craven's lines are not straight...  That is ok.

Interesting...  diagram...  However, I need to see three lines extending from each symbol.
=================



>>>  For those who don't have access to diagram display technology like Mystical_Craven, the solution is to be text written; please include enough detail in the steps so that anyone from home can follow and draw what you are illustrating.<<<


The rewards will be given thereafter...  FOR SOLUTIONS ONLY...  not hypotheses !    :noway:

I got a question. i know that you can't overlap lines, but can you cross a cricle on the way to connecting with another circle? cuz I think I have a solution if thats allowed.

No.  Mystical_Craven's diagram did that....  no go.

Well... can't you just "feel the love"  ...  :heartpump:

I challenge your mind and you get all worked up.

No..  you can't fold the paper.

Hehe... I just reread the 'rules' of the puzzle and realized that I had made it a lot harder on myself by imposing additional rules: there will be exactly nine lines and the lines will be straight.  :grin:
