I'm not sure if they should be on the second line or the third, but they certainly should not have been omitted entirely.

To be sure: English writings? Distance between lines relevant? Is there a fourth line? A fifth? A sixth? An undefined number? Relevant? Are there many pages? One page? Is the second line under the first? The third under the second? The fourth under the third and so on? Relevant? Are there writings on other lines? Words?

Relevant how many insects? Two? More than 5? More than 10? All the necessary to cover the entire line? Relevant?

on the second line or the third --> can it be between the two? Assuming that the horizontal lines are on a page...can it be on one side of the page?

they = email key? (at least in Italian it is called as the "snail")

Are the horizontal lines the ones of a book? Of a copybook? Of a diary? Of a PC page (e.g. Word)? A receipt book? A book for taking notes? Of an App? Of a computer program? Of something related to the internet?

Insect: the name of the insect? An image of it? a symbol? Keyboard relevant? An emoticon? A gif? a midge on a screen? flies relevant? locust? worm? Beatles (music group or insect)? Bees? Others?

Does its omission: denote a mistake? Indicate something incomplete? Makes something else false? Paintings relevant?

WAG: is it text on a rock which is also a mineral with insect fossils above it (making its reproductions incomplete if insects were omitted)?

To be sure: English writings? Yes. Distance between lines relevant? No. Is there a fourth line? A fifth? A sixth? An undefined number? Relevant? One or two more, irr.
Are there many pages? No. One page? No. Is the second line under the first? The third under the second? The fourth under the third and so on? Correct. Relevant? Not really. Are there writings on other lines? Words? Yes, all the lines are made up of writing.

Relevant how many insects? Not exactly. Two? More than 5? More than 10? This. All the necessary to cover the entire line? No. Relevant?

on the second line or the third --> can it be between the two? No. Assuming that the horizontal lines are on a page...can it be on one side of the page? Not on a page.

they = email key? (at least in Italian it is called as the "snail") No--you mean this sign @? That's great, it does look like a snail!

Are the horizontal lines the ones of a book? Of a copybook? Of a diary? Of a PC page (e.g. Word)? A receipt book? A book for taking notes? Of an App? Of a computer program? Of something related to the internet? No to all.

Insect: the name of the insect? This is what should be on the line. An image of it? a symbol? Keyboard relevant? An emoticon? A gif? a midge on a screen? flies relevant? locust? worm? Beatles (music group or insect)? Bees? This, no to rest. Others?

Does its omission: denote a mistake? I think so. Indicate something incomplete? Yes. Makes something else false? Not exactly--"incomplete" is good. Paintings relevant? No, but close.

WAG: is it text on a rock which is also a mineral with insect fossils above it (making its reproductions incomplete if insects were omitted)? No, but good thought and very vaguely OTRT.

so the name "bees" is missing right? If so are the the letters bye,e,s in this order missing? in another order? Or the word that means "bees" missing?

Are we talking about lines on a wall? On a building? on a painting? on a painting representing something written? on a signal? On something made of wood? on a rock? on the body of someone (e.g. a tattoo)? do the lines "naturally" belong to the object where they find themselves? are they artificially added? If they were not present would people hav e noticed it? Is it normal to see lines on such an object? Are the lines on something at all?

Are the other lines relevant? Do they talk about insects? Bees? Honey? Is the text written with a pencil? a pen? Ink? relevant?

incomplete --> i.e. it does not fit well? When read it does not make sense? It makes more sense if the word bees is inserted? Does the word bees rhyme with something? Are there blank spaces instead of the word "bees"? Other words? Another word? A synonym?

so the name "bees" is missing right? Yes. If so are the the letters bye,e,s in this order missing? in another order? Or the word that means "bees" missing?The exact word.

Are we talking about lines on a wall? Yes. On a building? On a wall in a building. on a painting? on a painting representing something written? on a signal? On something made of wood?Partly, yes. on a rock? on the body of someone (e.g. a tattoo)? No to rest.

do the lines "naturally" belong to the object where they find themselves? I would say no. are they artificially added? They were added, doyd of artificial. If they were not present would people hav e noticed it? The lines? Probably. Is it normal to see lines on such an object? Yes. Are the lines on something at all? Yes, on a wall.

Are the other lines relevant? Yes, or at least related.Do they talk about insects? Bees? Indirectly, not super relevant. Honey? Is the text written with a pencil? a pen? Ink? This. relevant? Not really, but they would not typically be handwritten.

incomplete --> i.e. it does not fit well? Depends what you mean.When read it does not make sense? No. It makes more sense if the word bees is inserted? I'd say so, but whether it makes sense is not the central issue. Does the word bees rhyme with something?No. Are there blank spaces instead of the word "bees"? Other words? Another word? A synonym? No to all.

Is it normal to see lines on such an object? Yes. --> so the wall in the building has been build in order to contain line on it? Were the writings written at the time the wall was build? Lines = lines made in order for text to be written on them?

building = a school? a restaurant? a public place? an airport? an house? others?

WAG --> is it a eye examination?

Not exactly, but one would expect to see these on the walls of this building. Were the writings written at the time the wall was build? No. Lines = lines made in order for text to be written on them? They are lines of text.

building = a school? a restaurant? a public place? Yes. an airport? an house? others? Yes.

WAG --> is it a eye examination? No.

was the text an ancient poetry? An invented text? something that should be read? General information? part of the building design? Is perspective relevant?

Were there symbols in place of the word bees? holes? empty parts of walls? windows? lights? engravings? cracks? colored dyeing? hand traces? Indications? lines?

Can we assume that it was something like (the underlying represent the lines under the text...are there?):

wordswordswords
wordswordswords
wordswordswords


and it should have been something like:

wordswordswords
wordswordsbeeswords
wordswordswordsbees
?

Were the text words connected one to the other? Did they make a sentence? Or maybe they were just unconnected words? Can "bees" stay at the end of a line?

Is the building a museum? A public bathroom? a church? an hospital? A police station? A building connected with bees? With information/culture? University?

Relevant why the word bees and not another? For a matter of fitting? Could any other word of 4 letters with two equal letters fit? For a matter of meaning? Of context? Of symbol/paint/ink/coherence/info?

Earnest

was the text an ancient poetry? An invented text? No. something that should be read? I'd say so. General information? More like specific information. part of the building design? Is perspective relevant? No to rest.

Were there symbols in place of the word bees? holes? empty parts of walls? windows? lights? engravings? cracks? colored dyeing? hand traces? Indications? lines? There are lines of words, but I wouldn't say anything is "in place of" bees.

Can we assume that it was something like (the underlying represent the lines under the text...are there?):

wordswordswords
wordswordswords
wordswordswords


and it should have been something like:

wordswordswords
wordswordsbeeswords
wordswordswordsbees?
Yes.

Were the text words connected one to the other? They're related, yes. Did they make a sentence? No...Or maybe they were just unconnected words? but they are related Can "bees" stay at the end of a line? It could be placed there, yes.

Is the building a museum? Yes! A public bathroom? a church? an hospital? A police station? A building connected with bees? Not paticularly. With information/culture? University?

Relevant why the word bees and not another? Yes. For a matter of fitting? It's the word I think should be there. Could any other word of 4 letters with two equal letters fit? No. For a matter of meaning? Yes. Of context? Yes. Of symbol/paint/ink/coherence/info? Not sure what you mean, I think no.

Did the sentence relevantly describe something? Something historical? If so relevant about which historical period? Renaissance? Nehandertal men? Before? Prehistory? Cavemen? Egyptian period? Roman times? Modern times? Does it signal something? Does it describe a process? A tool? How a tool was used? A food? An habit of ancient people?
Is the museum: a biological museum? Museum of art? A museum like British museum? A botany museum? A generic museum?

Did they make a sentence? No...Or maybe they were just unconnected words? but they are related --> are they related to: nature? Honey? Colors? Historical events? History? Animals? Black and yellow? Bees? Insects? Processes? Tools? Flowers? Technology? are they related with an arrow? Did they have a related meaning? A common word that unified them? Do the lines pertain different topics? Are the words on different line connected by different connections? By different words? By different logical chains?

Are bees central part of the museum? Of the room where the wall was? Relevant the font of the writing? Maybe bees should have been written in another font? With another color? Would the adding of the word "bees" have made a meaningful sentence? It would have left the meaning unchanged?

Did bees contribute to a process? Connection bees-honey relevant? Bees-health? bees-hive? bees-pollination?
Was thee text ambiguous without the word bees? Reference to black and white stripes relevant? To honey? To animals in general? Would the text bee more informative about the importance of bees? About their existence? About their presence? About their necessity for a process? About something they made? Bees = alive bees? Died bees?
Relevant how lines were separated? Relevant the reason why second and third line and not first line? Was first line devoted to an explanation? Had no-one read the text would the puzzle still work (i.e. there would be the need of the word bees)?Had the text been on the floor?
