  • 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 ๐Ÿ‘†
          • as I hold, I traverse a lateral edge โ–ถ
          • as I [[breathe out]], I try to [[factorize]] the number if I want and I [[go down]] ๐Ÿ‘‡
          • as I am yet not breathing in, I optionally rest as I [[go left]] โ—€๏ธ
        • 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
