I've got to confess that I couldn't relate what you just said to the analysis curr3nt and I have been doing. I fear we are off target.

Here's a question. Did you originate this problem? (For example, when curr3nt spotted the surprising color on 4x24, you agreed that it should have been black. That makes me think you created this.) Or did you find it elsewhere (for example, you said you had removed the outer shell. That made me think someone else originated it).

as far as i can tell i originated it, but i was inspired by a similar pattern created by someone else.
they used blue triangles all the way through, rather than red and black squares.

Thank you, phil1882, for finding and extending such an interesting puzzle! Now that I view the video a few times, I understand what you were saying about how the diagram is created. Overcoming my disbelief that such a simple mechanism could create a chart representing presence or absence of common factors was a pleasurable and enlightening experience.

Thank you, curr3nt, for attacking this puzzle and sharing your progress with us.

Thanks for the video, I was confused as all hell before.
