I finished it. What does it all mean?

Warning: Spoiler!


I'll probably look into getting the rest of the +XX puzzles, but I wont be putting in 3 hours a day anymore.

Also, there are two areas I'm not sure how to access. Has anyone gotten in?

The first one is the underground pathway between the windmill and the desert lift. Both ends have the doors locked from the other side.

The second is late/end game (Edit - I looked up a hint and found it):

I'm not worrying too much about the "meaning". I enjoyed the game, I liked the puzzles and how the environment interacted with them. There are a lot of songs I like in which I have no idea what the lyrics are "about", but they bring about a certain emotion or feeling, and that's what the elements of the game did with me.

Yeah, I was being facetious when I said "What does it mean?" I don't really care about that at all. I loved the game. Like Jeb, it's one of my all-time favorites.

I got it. I had to go back to the Dye Swamps and take a look at the rules, which I realized what to to do, then it was just a matter of getting the line right.

Now onto The Challenge.

Couple of puzzles in the town are driving me crazy. And I STILL can't crack the first puzzle in the sun temple. I think I've finished all the rest of the areas w/laser finished.

The Sun Temple one I brute forced, noted above--but once I did that, I realized what I had missed. Just look at it as many ways as you can.

I finished everything, rolled credits. There's more stuff though. Going back in.

Man, I think I need to take a break. I'm starting to get impatient with the last few miscellaneous puzzles and thinking more and more of just looking up some hints online, which I don't want to do. The same thing happened with Fez, and I gave in. I don't want to do that this time, so I think I need to go play another game for a while and come back to this with more of the sense of leisure that I had throughout most of it.

Jeb,

Don't sweat it, man. Like I should feel guilty about asking in here or asking my wife and brother-in-law to help out? Pfft. We were sitting around the TV with our eyes closed listening the other day and humming and shit. This game is great even with help, which can't be said for every puzzle game.

I've been taking breaks this whole time. I'm rocking a MINECRAFT game at the moment, keeping HEARTHSTONE going, just downloaded _PRISM (an iOS puzzle game). It's not going anywhere, and it benefits from an open mind.

Discussing a late game puzzle type below.

I haven't actually attempted it yet. I'm pretty sure I've already found them all (and screenshotted them), I just haven't taken the time to look them over to work out the rules yet.

I would absolutely buy this to play with my wife but she already gets motion sick from first-person games and I've seen people complain about The Witness being even harder on people than normal. Total bummer.

^yes, it is bad re: motion sickness. My wife has trouble with it if I lurch to a run.
