• a [[game]].
• not to be confused with [[braid]] -- which is amazing by the way.
• Braids is a solitaire/coop game I think I may have invented :)
• It goes like this:
• you [[count]], from zero up.
• I do this while meditating, but that's optional, I guess.
• unless we're always meditating?
• or we're entities programmed to do so.
• as you count, you visualize the [[number]].
• I do a version of [[box breathing]].
• It helps me reach [[samatha]].
• as I [[breathe in]], I count [[up]] the side of a square π
• as I hold, I traverse a lateral edge βΆ
• as I [[breathe out]], I try to [[factorize]] the number if I want and I [[go down]] π
• as I am yet not breathing in, I optionally rest as I [[go left]] βοΈ
• I start at [[0]] and move up according to three default rules:
• increase the number by one
• so after [[1]] comes [[2]]
• increase one of its [[factors]] by one and multiply
• this is equivalent to the above for a [[prime]], it reduces to the rule above
• the choice can be made to encode a number by convention, like order
• extra rules can be agreed and numbered
• a braid is what players achieve by counting up to a certain number through different paths
