 A kind of [[mind palace]] I've been developing.
 It's distributed around the [[Agora of Flancia]]; the following is an excerpt.

#push [[numbers]]

While meditating I sometimes do variations on [[box breathing]] combined with [[counting]].
 It's maybe a bit idiosyncratic but it helps me focus; I'll write more about it in this node.
 It's important to let go of the process after a while, instead of becoming [[attached]] to the counting.

While I [[breathe]], I sometimes visualize a box.

I started by using [[single time]] to count with the help of this box.
 On breathing in, I count and optionally visualize a number inside or near the box as I go up the leftmost edge.
 On not yet breathing out, I go right through the upper edge.

On breathing out, I go down the rightmost edge.
 While I do this, optionally, I [[factorize]] the number or evaluate it according to some well known function.

If the number is known to be prime, optionally, I calculate its multiples until I start another breath.
 If some multiple is known to be interesting, I stop there and make a mental note of where I stopped.

[[119]] is known to be interesting, for example, because it was the first multiple of [[17]] which I found interesting in one particular run through this process.
 It was the first number that I couldn't decide as prime or composite based on some procedure simpler than knowing it was a multiple of 17.

On occasion I find it useful to [[double time]].
 That means, to count up both when [[inhaling]] and [[exhaling]].
 This can feel more engaging, which makes it easier to maintain focus.
 It also lets one make use of our body's natural [[parity bit]]: breathing in and out follow each other like odd and even numbers.
 I start counting at one, so odd numbers happen when inhaling and even numbers when exhaling.
 Interesting noting related to a number takes place on two consecutive edges.

node [[braids]] pulled by user

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?
 ([[buddha nature]] and all)
 or we're entities programmed to do so.

unless we're always meditating?

I do this while meditating, but that's optional, I guess.

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 βΆ
 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]] βοΈ
 I start at [[0]] and move up according to three default rules:
 a braid is what players achieve by counting up to a certain number through different paths

a [[process]].

I meditate 10 minutes on [[waking up]], and then 5 or 10 more most days in the evening.
