to make the star you need to start at (0,0,0)(because that is the last point in the sequence) and then connect points (0,0,1) and (1,0,0)


if we go two more points (1,1,1) (0,1,0) then look at it from all sides (or rotate it) we getback.JPG Backbottom.JPG Bottomfront.JPG FrontLeft.JPG Leftright.JPG Righttop.JPG Top

I believe the answer is (0,0,1), (1,0,0), (1,1,1), 0,1,0)

Well, this batch was certainly cleverer than the last. But they saw points, not the point. They did understand why a square was better than a rectangle and an equilateral triangle was better than isosceles. They did not see the infinite beauty that was around them.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

well i tried everything else

it could be said a sphere has infinitely many faces/sides

so is the answer: there is no answer
because there is an infinite number of possibilities seeing as how we don't even know how many more installments we need

I still think it has to do with the perfectly circular room with a metallic dome.

I think it has something to do with equality. Squares have exact same sides, equilaterals too. So I think, psyko's on the right track.

the orignal post says

The room they entered now was very round, perhaps even perfectly round, with cornflower blue walls (or perhaps it was better to say ‘wall’). There were no paintings or displays, the wall was a pristine barren blue. The ceiling was a metallic looking dome, and In the center of the room was a round table a shade lighter than the walls on which levitated a large metallic sphere whose surface took on a bluish hue as it reflected the color of the room.

i think we may be in a sphere

also the word reflect has been used alot

and a circles or sphere is denfined by all points equal distances from a fixed center.

i wonder if something happens if we touch the sphere in the center

OK, let me throw my hat in the ring.

Here is what I would try: (1,0,0) (1,0,0) (1,0,0) (0,0,1) (0,0,1) (0,0,1) (0,0,1) (0,0,0) (0,0,0)

Why? Others picked up on the sphere indicating a 3-dimentional answer. I looked at the keys as a direction, instead of a point. When you add them all up, you get a point that is (5,8,4). So the additional keys will bring the point to (8,8,8) – a perfect cube. Additionally, I added two points at the end so that the total number of keys pressed is 25 (5x5), the witch gave us the first 16 (4x4).
