Why code a grid with white and green squares only for the green squares to be meaningless?. Learning about the Arecibo message was a treat, but sadly solving this poor attempt at converting it to a puzzle was not.

Ignore everything except purple, green blue and yellow sections. The blue (graphically) and yellow (numerically) tell you where to find the cypher text. The purple tells you how to interpret the green and this is the forms the key. Easier once I understood the original Arecibo.

First theorem in which I was disappointed - although I did have fun but couldn't get past the decrypted quote and didn't tumble to the idea of a book without the clues. Of course I'd done the eleven lines of page 4 prep work before I did the practice puzzles (like everyone else). I'll have to take my first fail I guess ... ON TO THE NEXT ONE!

Yes I agree M ”042” theorems is much “>” than “5” practice theorems. I don’t know if this was intentional, but if you put the purple symbol through a binary to text decoder going from left to right and bottom to top, it gives you 042>5.
