Hints for Chapter 7

Hint 01 - What to look at first

The icons. Figure out the icons first.

Hint 02 - Don't know what to do with the icons.

They represent a person. Do not worry about their titles.

Hint 03 - Figured out what icons represent. They don't make sense.

Epigraph's last line says "that you will speak."

Hint 05 - Are there other instructions being missed?

No. The icons tell you everything you need to do. You may print things out or use photo editing software to do what it tells you to do.

Hint 06 - Doing what the icons tell you but finding nothing?

It mentions "it would have been easier if she had a physical copy of it." Why is that?

Hint 07 - Still finding nothing.

Imagine you are ripping a page out of the book. What exactly do you have? Take what you exactly have and do what the icons tell you to do. Take each column separately, though.

Hint 08 - Explain the process clearly for the second part.

For the first column, take the first page, page 37. If you were to rip this page out, it would have a reverse side, page 38. However, this page would be backwards, reversed, mirrored. So if you have two single sided pages, make sure 38 is mirrored when you overlay the two. Do the same for the next two numbers in the column. To make sure things are aligned correctly, make sure the bottom line and page circle are aligned.

Hint 08 - Did everything correctly. Now what?

Amidst everything, you will be able to read something clearly. If you can't, then something has been done wrong. Look at the bottom lines.
