The string may be open🔓 or closed🔒, but is closed by default (hence the term 'loop➰'). In fact, the main objective of each opus is to twist some variation of this object into a functionally unique fibor. (compare loop quantum gravity)
/// +In the context of the whole of
string theory, the loopstring may colloquially be referred to as "toy
string". We must be careful, however, to not confuse this "toy
string" or its ludology (SL) with bosonic
string theory(which is considered a "toy model" for which to introduce
+I named it "loopstring" from 'loopy quanta' plus '
superstring', even though both terms are misnomers.
An argument can be made that l-string is a rudimentary automaton. It is hypothesized that all games are (or any game can be) based on and around some primitive manifestation of this object. Hence, when we want to study the ludology of any phenomenon, we could start with a drawn loopstring, and proceed from there. (see stew)
