1. ## Algorithms for Breathing

The purpose of this thread is no other than to put forth an algorithm for systematic breathing--particularly for physical activities such as running. Let N=nose, M=mouth, i=inhale, e=exhale. The following sequence, then, is to be carried out with each variable receiving the same length of time as every other:

{Ni, Me, Mi, Ne..repeat}

On that note, my hope is that this will provide a more measured pattern for breathing than what may be predisposed to by default. However, I do not recommend this algorithm for non-arobic activity as it has been demonstrated that in prinicple one is better off breathing through one's nose, as in the nostrils there is at least some filter, and thus one is comparatively less vulnerable to sickness or directly taking in hazardous particulate materials. It follows that the prescribed algorithm for non-arobic breathing is quite simply:

{Ni, Ne..repeat}

The library is closing, which entails that I have to leave. But I will be formulating some sophisticated breathing algorithms that can be applied to giving speeches, reading aloud, conversing, and so forth.

2. I have one.

Let b=belly e=expansion h=head ex=exhale t=travel

Okay, start by expanding your belly moving the air up to your chest, from Ni into the lung at its deepest point. Exhale by letting the the air slowly fall out of your mouth as the energy of the breath travels upward out of the top of your head.

From what I read, that is sex breathing.

3. One breathing technique used in yoga is as followed:

breath in through right nostril - slowly count to 10 while doing that.
close both nostrils and hold your breath for 10
open left nostril exhale - slowly count to 10 while doing that.

repeat and start witch left nostril this time.

following your scheme I added prefix r (right nostril) and l (left nostril) and hB (hold Breath)

{rNi10 - hB10 - lNe10 - lNi10 - hB10 - rNe10}

4. I've been aware of breathing techniques, but I never really knew about them - great posts. I should try these as my breathing algorithms usually include lighters.

I mean...I wait with baited Ni10...to see the more sophisticated algorithms.
