Brush with an existential crisis

Recently, I stumbled upon an album on YouTube titled, “Everywhere at The End of Time”. The album was created by an artist that goes by “the Caretaker” and was released in “stages” from 2016 to 2019. The album’s main goal was to depict the stages of dementia. As the album passes, which is just over 6.5 hours long, the songs become more distorted and less recognizable. This genuinely creates a sense of foreboding and restlessness, but it is hard to stop listening. It is truly a descent into madness.

Python Word Puzzle Solver

The Problem

We are given 7 numbers that are linked to a number in the alphabet (1=A, 2=B…26=Z). We must then use those 7 numbers to find an english word that fits the clue. Each number, however, is linked to that letter in the alphabet, plus the next 4 letters. This gives us n+4 combinations for the number given. For example, if we are given the number 1, this could be A, B, C, D, E, or F. We then must find the cartesian product of all possible combinations of letters. We must use the 7 numbers given find a single 7 letter word that fits a clue.
