Whatever suggested, if I understood correctly, that I realize the theory. To make it concrete, so that it is useful. This is the context of the posts of today. It was a wise suggestion.

Your addition makes it a bit clearer, or at least points me towards what you might be getting at. You're talking about trying to theoretically map functional distribution between each side of the dichotomy, taking into account the usually excluded middle, or something of the kind? (I may not have put that very well, it's late and I'm sleepy )
It was not arbitrarily chosen. I weighed the pros and cons. The alternatives would have been 4(5 X 5) and 8(9 x 9). We have no other alternatives, we cannot use 6 X 6 or 8 X 8 because as you say we need the medial point, therefore we need an odd number. Otherwise you are perfectly right.

Because you were trying NOT to exclude the middle! Yeah, that's what I meant though. I didn't mean absolutely arbitrary, so much that use of the number 6 was not intrinsically meaningful beyond being convenient to build from.

Do you think it would help, as far as making this broadly useful to people goes, to characterise the numbers in a more concrete way, with examples of what each represents?

Yes, sorry, it occured to me at the moment I posted that it was exactly what you meant.
Forgive me the redundancy.

I try to characterize the numbers with examples of what each represents. If and when I am up to the task ..

Thanks, skylights.
I like your avatar. It rhymes with skylights perfectly.

thanks! it was actually completely inadvertent. or at least, subconscious. i realized how they fit one day when i went to change my avatar. and then, i could not bring myself to change it.

There is no way you could have done it, skylights. The best is as far as it goes.

9. Sorry, wildcat, I've been busy in some other threads.

I'm gunna go to bed now, but I've subscribed, and I'll come back and check in on this thread later.

I think I got a glimpse of what you were going for earlier, so hopefully I'll be able to understand it more comprehensively the next time.

G'nite.
