Open your journal and look at the corresponding symbols on the keyboard that you have written down. You should be looking at the solitary diamond symbol on the far left white key, four-diamond symbol on the fourth white key from the left, and the split top-to-bottom diamond symbol on the second black key of the middle black key trio.

Look at the other page. The corresponding sea level indicator swaps those symbols on the top row to different ones underneath the arrow. Using the symbols above, you should now have the split left-to-right diamond, the solitary diamond, and the two diamond symbols. Locate these organ pipes and open their valves. Close the valves on the other four pipes. You will find one of the pipe valves on the right-hand wall of the passageway you walk through to get to the organ, two on either side of the pit and one each down the two staircases on either side of the stone tablet.
