I think I will spend my limited time and energy on the decaying earth
doing other things.  Without even knowing much about the puzzle other
than reading the puzzle description, my guess is that without some
historic breakthrough on some unsolved problem in algebra, no matter
what algorithmic method (except for possibly quantum computation) is
used, the complexity requires more time and interest than is contained
in the remaining history of mankind.
