Spoiler Hint 3

Tweeting to the Moiraibot about this challenge - a player received the following reply from the Twitterbot: "The Self-aware puzzle is very hard and bewitching. It makes you feel hexed. "


Major Spoiler Hint 4

Think about the 16x16 grid, only half of the grid seems to be referenced with the hidden text and the wording of the moirai reply, "hexed"


Spoiler Solution

The matrix/grid is 16 x 16. The hidden text only uses half of the grid.

58777788378355383888877 ifnbojejajdabjhdaafkkmf

Take all the pairs, decrease the number by one. Then convert the letters a....p to the range 0....f.

You will now have:

48 75 6d 61 6e 69 74 79 20 69 73 20 41 49 27 73 20 70 75 7a 7a 6c 65

Which are hexadecimal numbers which fit nicely in the ASCII range, convert to get:

Humanity is AI's puzzle
