Each nut is either a start or stop identifier (leaf).*** The two nuts of
major scale, connected by
stews. As an arbitrary ordered pair [egg,epp], they are referred to as abscissa (toonlight) and ordinate (funshine).
/// Balls are pseudo-theoretical (abstract)
objectsthat 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.
