So, just to get a full feel of just what it takes to solve this beast, I'm going through the last layer of the last two centers in all it's goreious detail. Just one little algorithm, the R Ui Li U Ri Ui L when applied repeatedly can see you through. The key here is concentration. By isolating different layers, I can 3 cycle all the pieces. In this case, I have to do the 3 sets of the 3 cycle with 3 different variations of layer movement! Lose my concentration once, and I'm doomed to repeat!

And then, of course, there is the supercube two edge switch that has to happen when I land into a 2 cycle. What that means is that I have to keep two edges unsolved, and yet coordinated with each other with each of the 3 cycles, while paying attention to solve the remaining two edges. Believe me, just remembering it makes my head still spin!

So as you may never see this excruciating process again, I document it here, man against mod, slowly and methodically conquering the last two centers and finally taking it to completion. With this technique and strategy, you will be able to solve any supercube!

But wait, before we celebrate, before we think ourselves completely safe and out of the water, having made it to dry land, we can hear off in the distance the rumble of a tsunami, as edge placement and final even layered parity problems promise to potentially undermine all that we have done and land us back in the middle of rough waters!

So pause to celebrate, but join me for part 3 as I steel myself up for the final battle with edge placement and parity, which in many ways can be just as challenging!

Stay tuned...
