During the Tutorial, it sometimes suggests I try some Science Puzzles.
In the Science Puzzles - it says, these are for people with "X Global Points"

I don''t have a clue what a "Global Point" is, or even where to find it.
Why isn't is displayed in the header - with a mouse-over/tool-tip that explains it?

In this game, you have to use your intuition.
If you need information, they are in the wiki or in scientific articles.
No need to have all explained in the GUI.

It is well described on site.
You get global points after science puzzle is closed.
OFC when you start the game you have 0 points...
