1) Know that the text itself--while excellent prose-- is not part of the solution per se. Individual letters found in individual words in the text are essential to solving the riddle however.

2) This is an Arnold cipher, where you construct new words or phrases from certain letters scattered throughout the text. The key to knowing which letters to use is found in the number code at the bottom. Ultimately, the answer is a six letter word (gotten using the six 3-number combinations).
Thank you for the hint! :D

I was overthinking it way too much. Now it seemes way too easy :P
