Solving Maynard's Puzzle

This is only interesting if you're into the band Tool, A Perfect Circle and/or Puscifer.


The slide shows below are from my video series "Solving Maynard's Puzzle". 98% of everything in the videos are in these slide shows, there was only 1 or 2 videos that i used clips from interviews of Maynard, so if you really want to see those the video series is way at the bottom of this page.

Alot of people complained about having to pause the videos to read, as though me spending hundreds of hours over the course of 14 years cracking this puzzle and then explaining it to you wasn't good enough, so this is the next best thing I can do for now.

My theories are continuously evolving, so some of these theories might be a bit out dated, but I'd say at least 95% of it still remains "true". Eventually I will update my theories, maybe in another "series" or blog or something, I don't know yet. I think one day once Maynard's story has officially ended, I will turn all of this into one gigantic comprehensible video with narration. I'm only 34 so I'm pretty sure I will out live Maynard in order to do so.

Subscribe to my youtube channel to catch the latest video in the series as soon as it comes out, or just come checkout my website every day, that's cool too.

The original videos of this series if you prefer them instead of the slide show.

Solving this puzzle took hundreds of hours over the course of over a 14 and continuing. If you appreciate the insane amount work I put into this please consider donating, I would super appreciate. Your donations help keep this site alive.

I have 2 mint condition copies of Fear Inoculum deluxe editions.

Both directly from Amazon, never been opened.

Both have different designs on the back. I don't know what "version" they are, as there is rumoured to be 3 or 4 different versions with different designs.

I actually got 3, but one i am keeping for myself. I also have one copy of the extended book version.

I am selling both, $200 each, free shipping if in the USA.

First person to buy gets to pick which one they get.

If no one buys them then maybe I will give them away in a contest or something, eventually...


if you want to buy one.

This is my Kung Fu gi, it's not for sale, sorry.
