I officially give up the brute-force attempt. There is simply not enough time to smash the golems and kill the brain to lower the room clear gate. Not before the briars activate those freaking force arrows that prevent all access to the seed beacon. I have tried the southern entrance and the western entrance. West is out of the question, too many tiles spent dancing around brained golems to even make it to the brain itself-- oh, wait... there're too many TILES in between the start, the brain, and the green gate. So I have to use the southern entrance. No problem, I thought.

Until I remembered that I'm facing GOLEMS, which clutter the freaking ground when they are slain and are nearly impossible to work with as long as they are un-brained. But if I hang out near the brain, I won't have enough time to get to the gate when they are all dead.

What the :nuke am I missing here?

You are missing just a bit of efficiency. I remember no special trick for this room. Unfortunately, I can't access my demo now, but I'll check out and see if I can share my first couple of moves to help you get going.

I'll admit, it's tough to come up with advice in the form of words. You just need to be good at timing your brain-killing and dealing with the waste corpses, pretty much. So I'll just post my own demo coming in from the south for you if you want.
