Friday Puzzles #88

So this started off being vaguely themed, and now it’s just quite hard. Not as hard as I’d intended, but that’s life. Enjoy!

EDIT: this used to have 2 solutions. Now it has one.

    Multiple solutions? As far as I can tell, there are two ways to complete the lower of the two 4s.

    Hey, nice compact yet thoughtful puzzle. I came in late after the multiple solutions. Frankly, as so many singularities are seen in the puzzle world, there is nothing wrong in my eyes with a puzzles with two stated answers and the designer says, “go find both.” Can add to the puzzle in the right circumstances. Thx.
