What's going on with the veil?
The thing that I find unsatisfying about this game is that it's possible to solve most of the puzzles (so far) without really understanding them, just by brute-force randomly wandering around.

I'm only on level 4 and this is the worst so far. I've solved the first 3 puzzles and I still have no idea what's going on when you enter the veil. Is it just that you can rotate the level without the guy moving anywhere? Some of the objects are shaded to look like the veil but I can't see how entering the veil affects them, if it does.

The artwork gets hard to parse in this level. It seems like the game really needs color or some other effect if it wants to have so many different kinds of shading (grey/white/veiled) to distinguish objects.

It seems you understand the most basic function of the veil with your question. You can rotate the map without your character moving. But the gravitional relationship between yourself and the "veiled" objects is maintained in the same state that you left it while in the veil.

So for example, when you first start on a map where you (Y↓) and the "veiled" object (O↓) are oriented in a normal manner and observing gravitional pulls in the same, default direction. If you step into the veil and rotate the map clockwise 90°, as you noticed, the object and map will move while you are unaffected. At this point the gravity states change to Y↓ and O→. The moment you exit the veil, that gravitational relationship will stay constant until you change it in the veil again. So after exiting the veil, if you decide to rotate the map 90° counter-clockwise, from a relatively-neutral map perspective, you would look like this: Y← and O↓.

I myself didn't understand the mechanics in the fourth chapter and just rotated in the veil until I came upon the solution, but toward the end of the chapter, you'll need it, or it will take some major plugging-and-entering before you get it.

Sorry if this explanation seems too convoluted or non-sensical, but it was the only way I could think to explain it.

Well anyway, I've blabbed enough. Good luck with the game.

Thanks. That helps.

When you enter the veil, you will notice your "spirit" leaving your body and travel into another object - this is usually the splotchy-shaded object in the level, like a menace or a sliding floor/wall. When you are in the veil, you can change the direction that gravity is pointing for just that veil-linked object, without affecting your body's gravity.

This means that some levels can have three different gravity points to keep track of: regular (your body), inverse (opposite your body gravity, when you turn white), and the veiled object. Often levels will have a gravity indicator for these three points of gravity, like hanging lamps or chains or rolling balls, and color-coded to match (so the white shaded indicator is for your inverse gravity and so on). When you change the veil-linked object's gravity, you will notice that the indicator changes too, so that is one way to keep track of your directions.

I just considered the veil as a switch to change the direction of gravity for certain objects. The main indicator of the direction of gravity are the moving lines all over the screen and the direction the speckles in the objects are moving - this helps when you later have two objects with different gravity directions.

Thanks a lot! This was realy helpfull comment, using which I finnally finished IV-V "The Intersection" level!

Hallelujah! Didn't click to me, because the "tutorial" level (IV-I) merely looked like I somehow controlled the key.

it is just a gravity-control thing :) Nothing more. Behind the veil, you can control the gravity. Just observe the chandelier how the gravity behaves.
