- 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.
- 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 👆
- as I hold, I traverse a lateral edge ▶
- as I [[breathe out]], I try to [[factorize]] the number if I want and I [[go down]] 👇
- as I am yet not breathing in, I optionally rest as I [[go left]] ◀️
- 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
