$\left( \dfrac{55}{61} \right)^x + \left( \dfrac{56}{61} \right)^x + \cdots + \left( \dfrac{60}{61} \right)^x = \left( \dfrac{62}{61} \right)^x + \left( \dfrac{63}{61} \right)^x + \cdots + \left( \dfrac{65}{61} \right)^x + 1$

If $$x$$ satisfies the equation above, find the value of $$(x^2+1)^4 + (x+23)^2 + (x+1)^6 + 36$$.
