**nut**(or

**ball**) :== an endpoint of a loopstring➿. String only have two (2) endpoints, hence, only two

**nuts**.

Each

**nut**is either a start or stop identifier (leaf).*** The two

**nuts**of

`Q♯🎶`

are `minor scale`

and `major scale`

, connected by `stews`

. As an arbitrary ordered pair [egg,epp], they may be referred to as *abscissa*and

*ordinate*(u-u).

///

**Balls**are pseudo-theoretical (abstract)

`objects`

that only exist as placement `functions`

. There is no '**ball**', so-to-speak, just a representation of an

`endpoint`

(dot). However, in `gameplay`

, a **ball**can be a toy (eg. ctf flag🏁, see

`zero-bubble`

). Likewise, macroeconomically, a **ball**would be lyric (

`triangulated data point`

). Also, in energy🔋 speak, nuts are representative of *electrodes*[anion (-) and cation (+)].

Mathematically, it's called a '

**ball**' (and sometimes 'dot') because as the string folds upon itself, the endpoints (a metric space) coordinate ("connecting the dots") into a loop➰, and the overall structure usually assumes a shape that is similar to some ovoid with boundary (cf. compact blob) in stereo.
