Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in an area with two rooms. The front room has two connectors available in front, and a small guarded area to the left. In that area are two already charged accumulators, and two emitters, one red and one blue. You can see through to the back room through some glass walls, and there are two purple barriers on either side that allow entry there as well.

In the back room, you see an array of six fixed connectors arranged in a line, each connected to the next. The second and third connectors also connect to a receiver each; the left one is blue and the right one red. Between the two receivers is a blue door that blocks access to the Sarabhai Fragment.

A large hint:

[ hint ]
Notice that the connectors in the back room are not in equilibrium, the door is biased to the left. How can you bring the light into equilibrium, then?
