Download Puzzling Digits PDF by Anya Linley Full Free and published by Lulu Press, Inc. This book was released on 2013-03-13 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When planning for our wedding, Ed and I wanted to do something a little different. What could we add to our wedding that hadn’t been done before a million times over? Then it struck us. We’ll force our guests to earn their wedding favours by solving a series of puzzles! At our reception, we gave each table a locked wooden box and a series of puzzle cards. The guests at each table had to work together to solve the puzzles which would, in turn, open the combination padlocks on the box and allow access to the favours. This ingenious idea acted as a table conversation piece, an ice-breaker, evening entertainment and a place to hold the wedding favours. What more could anyone ask for? This book is a collection of all 64 puzzle cards from our wedding. Each puzzle is entirely original, having been thought up by us in the long months before the big day and the answer to each is a single digit number.

Download The Puzzle Instinct PDF by Marcel Danesi Full Free and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 2002-06-19 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One of the most famous anagrams of all time was constructed in the Middle Ages. The unknown author contrived it as a Latin dialogue between Pilate and Jesus. Jesus' answer to Pilate's question "What is truth" is phrased as an ingenious anagram of the letters of that very question: Pilate: Quid est veritas? ("What is truth?") Jesus: Est virqui adest. ("It is the man before you.") The origin of anagrams is shrouded in mystery. One thing is clear, however -- in the ancient world, they were thought to contain hidden messages from the gods. Legend has it that even Alexander the Great (356--323 b.c.) believed in their prophetic power. -- from Chapter Two The most obvious explanation for the popularity of puzzles is that they provide a form of constructive entertainment. But in The Puzzle Instinct Marcel Danesi contends that the fascination with puzzles throughout the ages suggests something much more profound. Puzzles serve a deeply embedded need in people to make sense of things. Emerging at the same time in human history as myth, magic, and the occult arts, the puzzle instinct, he claims, led to discoveries in mathematics and science, as well as revolutions in philosophical thought. Puzzles fill an existential void by providing "small-scale experiences of the large-scale questions that Life poses. The puzzle instinct is, arguably, as intrinsic to human nature as is humor, language, art, music, and all the other creative faculties that distinguish humanity from all other species."
