SOLVED: Fragment Nine: Galifanx

Just a small thing I noticed, but the “M” on the Mercury disk is underlined. And as far as I can see it’s the only letter on all of the 6 disks that is underlined?

EDIT: correction, there is a “W” on the Earth disk that is underlined as well


#263

There is a W underlined on Earth. I just assumed it was so we new which side was up, but I could be wrong


#264

Yeah just saw that! that’s what I thought at first too but all of the other letters seem to be oriented in the same direction so they wouldn’t appear to need to be underlined


#265

I noticed that too. Also the “i” in the Jupiter disc is slightly elevated.


#266

The underlined letters are reflected across each other, if that make sense. Maybe each letter connects to another one? I dunno


#267

So quick summary, using the brilliant deductive skills of @Keegan and what @Gryphonic added to it, we have:

MERCURY
M (Neptune), ER (Jupiter), C (Venus), UR (Earth), Y (Saturn)

VENUS
V (Earth), E (Saturn), N (Neptune), U (Jupiter), S (Mercury)

EARTH
E (Mercury), A (Jupiter), R (Neptune), T (Venus), H (Saturn)

JUPITER
J (Mercury), UP (Neptune), I (Venus), TE (Saturn), R (Earth)

SATURN
S (Venus), A (Neptune), TU (Jupiter), R (Mercury), N (Earth)

NEPTUNE
NE (Saturn), P (Venus), T (Jupiter), UN (Mercury), E (Earth)

You use every letter or letter combo only once from the outer ring (Largest Letters) from each planet, and you never use any letters from the planet you are spelling. I hope this makes sense.


#268

Is this using only the “major letters” i.e. the largest letters on the outermost rings?


#269

Correct. Sorry I will make some edits to my post to clear up confusion


#270

Maybe the inner rings spell out other words?


#271

Uuuummm, could you draw a chart or graph or something? :confused: My brain didn’t bend around that curve.


#272

Not getting anywhere with the anagrams because there are just too many letters to deal with at once. We need some sort of pattern, something…


#273

It’s also possible to spell Uranus and Mars. So we have all 8 planets represented.

M (Neptune) A (Jupiter/Neptune) R (Neptune/Earth/Mercury) S (Mercury)
UR (Earth) A (Jupiter/Neptune) N (Neptune/Earth), U (Jupiter) S (Mercury).


#274

Maybe this will help…I’m not sure if there are other variations though


#275

I can’t do it right now because I’m at school, but maybe someone should draw how the letters connect to spell each word. Idk if that will be helpful, but maybe it will make shapes or something.


#276

Thanks for this! I just made one as well but you beat me to it :slight_smile:


#277

One thing that jumped out at me is “anx”. That’s not used in very many words. Actually it’s only used in phalanx and in words pertaining to anxiety.


#278

So, now that we did that… What do we do with it?


#279

Figuring that out is the next thing. Now we know these discs relate to one another in specific ways. There must be a use for that somewhere.


#280

Now we need to figure out how to solve the rest of the anagram.


#281

Highlighted the symbols for a better visual. Could maybe be some sort of rotational, based on the rotation of the planets or some other astronomical order?
