All is not as it seems!

This puzzle is like a Twilight Zone episode because you think that the main character is just watching some kids in the park in his hometown. Pretty normal, right? Then you find out when he stepped off the train at the station he actually traveled through a time warp and he has now visited his childhood self in a parallel dimension.

So yeah, at first i thought i solved this thing in 2 minutes. :lol:

You get out what u put into this lesson but for 2 credits it's a no-brainer IMO. This thing is solvable with some effort and creativity, too. Viewers are advised (by me) to give it 10-15 minutes up front, then stay close to the "pause" button. You will have both "WTF" moments and "Eureka" moments.

Only constructive criticism i have for Zibbit if he does this again is to make clearer signposts when are the best moments to actually pause the video, and maybe talk slow or pause, or give a small hint, before finally giving the real spoiler.

Thanks Katar, and thanks for constructive criticism as well. It's a good valid point.

Fantastic study- unfortunately although I saw some variations, I completely missed the winning idea. Very instructive- thanks!
