You start at the dock. There, and in 7 other places are Marker Switches.
Familiarize yourself with the island, flip the 7 Switches you can reach, then
return to the dock and enter the fore-chamber. Press the button on the paper
hanging on the wall, enter the number 8, press that button, then the one on the
imager. Go out and enter the Library. Put the Red and Blue Pages in their
books. Clicking the picture left of the bookshelf opens a secret passage. The
one to the right opens the door out. Look at the map. Clicking and holding on
the flashing white circle should make a line rotate, and pause at 4 places. If
it doesn't, flip the Switches you missed, then come back.

Enter Mechanical
================
Rotate the map until it stops on the gears, then enter the secret passage (see
Start). Go up the elevator, and note the key behind it (2:40 and 2,2,1). Leave
and go to the Clock Tower. Spin the wheels (small- hours, large- minutes) until
the Clock says 2:40. Press the red button, flip the Marker Switch, and enter
the Clock Tower. Pull the middle lever twice, then hold the left one until the
middle number reads 2. If you need to reset the puzzle, pull the right lever.
When the gear opens up, go to the large gear, and enter the Mechanical Age.

lever so that the openings on the circles face you, then go up, close the
stairs, and enter the elevator. Press the top arrow, then the middle button and
quickly exit the elevator. When it lowers, go to the controls. Move the left
lever up, then the right for a short time. Pull the left lever back down. Do
this until you hear a spring (1 of 4 sounds). Press the orange button, and
return to the Fortress entrance. Go down the path, and note the symbols. Return
to the elevator and the controls. This time, rotate the Fortress until you hear
a ping. Return to the entrance, and note more symbols. Go back to the controls
above the elevator, and rotate until you hear a dong. Return to the start of
the level, and enter these symbols in the pillar:
