  1. For too long, mathematicians have been despoiling our planet. Now, thanks to DA, we have Organic Calculus, the way Newton and Leibnitz intended!

  2. Is the header above (9th May) a clue? Maths is not my strong point and Rupert’s hint hasn’t helped either. Over to the other thread.

  3. Mine wasn’t a hint, just an appreciation of the surface of one of the clues (which I haven’t solved yet).

    I think “twisted” is just intended to let you know there’s some funny business going on.

  4. Wow. What an extravaganza. Haven’t had to work that hard in – well – a long time.

    Too many good clues to mention and the them was danged hard, if you know what I mean.

  5. OK, I admit it, cockiness and even complacency had started to creep in. Most weeks, the DA was finished by Sunday night. But this one– even with all the elements of the key in place– had me retired and very hurt. Pure DA Gold , if not Pantheon. And can there be a special category of wonderfulness for Organic Calculus, pretty please?

  6. Just the third solution picture indicates how hArd it was to keep track of the wordplay, the def, and the substitutions.
