-Puzzle 12: Meta
+\section{Meta}
-Solution: \texttt{\textbf{PAGE SEVENTY}}
+Since the previous puzzle answers are required as input to the meta, they are listed here.

+The next step is to notice that the answers are all 11 letters long and there is a 11x11 grid on the page referenced by the transparency. This means that we will be filling in the grid with the answers. But first we need to figure out the ordering.
+
+The flavor text on the transparency indicates that you are looking to \texttt{get rid of any bit of time}. This indicates that you are looking for units of time hidden within the answer words. Once we find all of the units of time we can then use the size of the units to order the answers. Note: sevade is a time unit that was introduced in the flavor text of a few different puzzles.

+If you read the diagonal it will tell you to go to \texttt{page seventy}.
+Before turning to page seventy, overlay the transparency on the answer grid and cross out all of the letters that are in the corresponding unit of time.
+
+Then overlay the transparency on page 70 and read the answer.
