What am I? (5)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

I'm stumped on the riddle so I'm off on a tangent

Here are two different solving methods to try

1. The Double-Happy technique – this is a rapidfire brainstorming approach. Let the mind wander randomly and spontaneously from a given starting point and it will make many surprising and unexpected connections. It’s like tossing a string of exploding firecrackers into a corn field and then shooting anything that moves. This approach tends to produce a high yield of variable quality.

2. The Zen technique – for this you need to be at peace with your inner self and in a state of connectedness with the universe. Sit quietly and allow the eternal cosmic consciousness to wash over you, illuminating your mind and bequeathing its truths like a great wave that throws up dead fish on the beach after a storm. This approach tends to produce pearls of unbearable significance to yourself but which are absolutely meaningless to anyone else.

Code: Select all

Here in the US we call this the "Dick Cheney approach".

After several days this approach stinks imo.

My next guess:

Plagiarism or plagiarise

Good thinking, Tarek - but it must be plagiarising - 4 syllables! The House of the Rising ***!

I was close with the levitating:D ... who was warmer ...?

I can't see the word in amonst all the tangents here, so let's have a summary.

Riddle:
It may be a game to you in that get up, but you have gone too far, you'll have to go.


Someone is slightly warm in one train of thought.


You're looking for a one word answer.


Your looking for a word of four syllables.


Extra clue:
I suppose I could make it three syllables to help you on your way but you would need the SUN to guide you.

This should help you get the first three syllables.

It sounds that Pla-gi-a-ri-sing has 5 syllables....
game = Play
get up, Sun, Brighton = Rise
Sun + Brighton = Plage (ignore the pebbles)...
Pla-gi-a-rism.......
Incorrect:(

How about this......

game, train = Exercise
train of though = power of the mind over body
go, gone = Kick out the evil spirit ALSO = OUT= EX
Brighton = Sun = Omnipotent (zenith) while Page 3 of the SUN (nadir)
Sun in Italian = Sole= Sole in English = homophone (Soul)
get up son= Darth Vader. Yes Master. RISE


Is it EX-OR-CI-SING:?:

if incorrect, my next train of thoughts would be to connect Sun=Sol as a syllable with game,train=exercise, nothing comes out except Soul excercising:(

Ah! Soul exercising would be on the wrong track all together.

In fact, any train journey is out, so forget all about trains, and Brighton, and rising.

tarek wrote:Is it EX-OR-CI-SING:?:

It is not.



Think of a hyponym relating to the hypernym 'Game'.

When thinking of 'Sun', look to the heavens for guidance.

And remember you're trying to find a link between these two for the first three syllables.

Ok, one final clue before logging off for the night.

You looking at the 'heavens' of antiquity.

I’m using the Stinky Fish approach and thinking celestially – one of my earlier responses was slightly warm and I’m running with Nirvana, the promised land, Utopia, paradise.

Sun = the source of light and energy, life force, Sol, Ra.

get-up = give rise to = cause = do

Gone too far = excess =xes

You’ve gone too far / you’ll have to go = a paradox

ANS : Paradoxes (I have no idea where game comes into it ... unless parachuting, parapenting, paragliding)

PS : Tarek - despite enlightenment, I still get picky – pla-gia-rise (3):D

Think donning and go from there.

Think more Europe than Africa.

Paralogism, and no, it's not paradoxes.

Parable: A paralytic parakeet from Paraguay took a parang to this paraphrasing and flew to the Paracel Islands.


You are looking for an intransitive verb of four syllables.
