What are you doing? Since 77topaz can't enter with phoneix, then oscillator guess is wrong.

Can I enter with a block?

Oscillator is almost right. Remember the music room example? That was sequential. So is this round.

### Re: The item lock

Following the Octagon II, I enter with a Unicycle

Pattern:
Oscillators of increasing period
Spark coil is p2
Jam is p3
Mold is p4
Octagon II is p5

If we continue on from testimqlstop's things (PkmnQ hasn't responded), then the room is locked for now...

Dear, I need to check the period of those. But yes, probably.

Aand Saka is right.

Yes, the room is locked now.
I forgot that CGoL wasn't omniperiodic yet.

Fortunately, we can always move on to the next room in Hilbert's Infinite Word Puzzle Hotel. How do we decide who picks the next one, though? Should I?

You don't decide, someone just does it.

I want to enter the kitchen, so I bring an apple.
Then I bring a phone.
Then I bring a button.

Probably not. But you can enter with a post.
Then a stick (a wrench in the pattern).
Then a stone.

### Re: The item lock

The fact that you edited and replaced "needle" with "thread" is a bit misleading. But there is clearly a pattern now: each mentioned object has a sort of "connection" with the last. Apple makes phones, phones have buttons, buttons are attached to threads, forum threads contain posts, posts are similar to sticks, "sticks and stones" is a saying. So, I enter with a glass house.

(My initial guess of "bacterium" was that the objects were in decreasing order of size, apple > phone > button > needle > bacterium.)

Ok, why glass house?
(Also, I edited from needle to thread because I couldn't figure out any way to connect needle to anything.)

Because "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" is an English proverb, similar to "sticks and stones".

So, I suppose we solved that room, and we should move on to the next? Inspired by the fact that the first room was a yellow room, I enter the pink room with a bike.
