I have an answer about why it’s 22paths.
A tree of life is composed of 32 paths. the 10 circles are called sephiroths (qliphoths in a tree of death). and Daath sephiroth is like “special”. So that leaves 22paths which are the connections between sephiroths.
so the riddle by TEP: 10 sephiras will open –
those are the circle puzzles that we will solve. then 22path will be opened – those are the “connections”, and they are represented in the final puzzle (Timmereth), “connecting” all the circle puzzle passwords (letters).. so we connect the letters and input the answer in the Timmereth circle which will “then open for Daath”
