Puzzle (SOLVED) Warning: There are no longer strings attached

(SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE SOLUTION TO THE PUZZLE)This may be more of a question of semantics. The study of which was the strength of the previous owner of this puzzle who used it to get newbies and students thinking about the importance of linguistics and communication. Search "General Semantics" and you may be in for a mind bending experience...but solve this puzzle first!

Harry Maynard rubbed elbows with some of the great thinkers of our time. Some of it definitely rubbed off on him as he devoted the better part of his life to the study of General Semantics. Was he headed in the right direction? Teach me something I don't know about GS and I will thank you heartily in the comments.

  1. Thank You. That string puzzle has been driving me crazy!

  2. Can you still buy this puzzle today?

  3. This specific one was made for the General Semantics organization. I am sure you could find either a puzzle site that sells these or might show you how to make your own. Looks like you could with little difficulty. Let me know what you find.
