    I am too lazy to write a matrix calculator so I am still doing operations on a f*****g 18 by 18 matrix that I still don't know if it is invertible.
    My senses tells me type:null and Arceus are each represented by a single basis in null space and left null space, but I don't know which is which even if that is true. And which type is left out? Should I switch type label when I switch rows?

    The kernal is just {0}

    Just look at the first two lines of the thing. There is no way you can find a vector that will make both those 0.

    Not true. There are 16 independent vectors that are orthogonal to to the first two rows.
