This grid is to be reformed by replacing all letters in 6 steps having regard to symmetry, changing one letter at a time and using only English words.
While my solution reflects my title at which you might not arrive, can you at least publish a new grid under my rules?
1. Show us any 3 x 3 grids which you have composed from a significantly different initial grid and their development.
2. Beginning with a 4 x 4 grid is it possible to arrive at a new grid, same rules, in 10 steps?
Because of the nature of the language - "English words" - is a difficult phrase to define. If a word seems to need justification then please do so; challenges are otherwise likely.
