    Yes or No:

    IF the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one was more difficult than the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one, THEN was the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one more difficult than the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one?

    I should probably be shot for posting that...

    What do mean "probably"?

    Off the top of my head, no.
    Because they are the same puzzles.

    Let before = +1
    Let after = -1

    Then
    "IF the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one was more difficult than..."
    is + 4 - 2 = = +2
    and can be rewritten as
    "IF the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before this one is more difficult than..."

    "...more difficult than the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one, THEN..."
    is + 2 - 1 = + 1
    and can be rewritten as
    "...more difficult than the puzzle you solved before you solved this one, THEN..."

    So the whole phrase can be summarized as
    "IF the previous puzzle was easier than the one before that, THEN..."

    "...THEN was the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one more difficult than..."
    is + 2 - 1 = + 1
    and can be rewritten as
    "THEN was the puzzle you solved before this one more difficult than..."

    "...more difficult than the puzzle you solved after you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one?"
    is + 3 - 1 = + 2
    and can be rewritten as
    "...more difficult than the puzzle you solved before you solved the puzzle you solved before you solved this one?"

    So the whole phrase reads
    "...THEN was the previous puzzle more difficult than the one before that?"

    So the whole sentence reads

    "If the previous puzzle was easier than the one before that, THEN was the previous puzzle more difficult than the one before that?"

    Answer: NO

    Now, where did I put that shotgun??

    Nicely done and summarized...

    I'm impressed you were willingly to sift through that.

    I think I'd better keep my Kevlar handy for a while just in case...
