I predict that 37% of those who read this statement will understand its purpose but only after reading the statement that follows. Only 12.1% of those who have read these first two statements will still not understand the hidden message within these statements. So by now you should have derived five of the 15 digits required to solve this puzzle. If you haven't derived the five digits reread the two statements above until you do. If you need to reread this several times, don't worry about it but let's keep this just between us.
Now I'll explain how to derive the remaining 10 digits. This is a word based puzzle, no external tools or apps are required, no internet searching is required, no complex math is needed, but some counting is required. Simply find 10 words within the 26 below that differ in some subtle but distinct way. Those who can find this difference will know how to transform it into a digit for each of the 10 words. Most importantly, let's keep this just between us.
Congratulations to first finder thanman2.
