+The Egglepple Company

The Egglepple Company (or just Egglepple) is the pseudonym given to what is now known as Egglepple (kindergarten). It was an incorporated@ business entity in various states throughout the United States of America prior to its deprecation, reorganization, and later inclusion into LES. Historically, Egglepple was the very first establishment to be a standalone/independent recreational mathematics+ enterprise (+:=contract-based, sometimes ghostwriting for academe from 10/2000 - 02/2001).Reference: Ohio Secretary of State's Office (also of interest The Stewart Ellis Company - Gobotech, #305)

Note (+): pm:=pure mathematics, am:=applied mathematics. (see Funshine/Toonlight)

"Egglepple" is the middle name of Link Egglepple Starbureiy, after whom the company is called, and by whom the entity was created. It spawned from the unincorporated/unorganized Egglepple Portfolio (for toy [puzzle] design, circa 1991).

Note (+): Nowadays, the 'company' portion is assumed to be my roster (of characters/personalities +gallery) and the yots.

Back at The Ohio State University, I put in my time roving the halls of the mathematics, physics/astronomy, and chemistry departments. I was fairly new in that world ("publish or perish") and really wasn't familiar with LaTeX and that publishing scheme back then (the departments certainly didn't make it easy for non-staff to have access to the system), so I did what I did best when it came to visual expression, I drew stuff up/wrote stuff down on napkins (yes, at times with wax crayons🖍️ or colored pencils✏️).

The astronomy department was awesome in the regard that they treated people who came through their doors respectfully. The math department, however, was the total opposite. There was so much ego (mine included) polluting the building that it was almost laughable, yet frustrating. Anyway, there would be these 'challenge' problems/help requests from the community (ie. intra-departmental) often posted on bulletins, offering modest bounties💵 (very short-term contracts) for their solutions. The opportunist in me would peel these from the boards, take them home, and come back shortly thereafter with my answer(s) written on (paperclipped🖇️) napkins. I remember just vagabonding off of those purses (yes, I was a 'bounty hunter') for periods at a time (sometimes in conjunction with all-levels math tutoring/coaching gigs). I guess that - in addition to responding to Michio Kaku's earlier proposition - was me (being the person responsible for) turning math into my version of a sport (, and thus, solidifying my interest in ctfs🏁).


Mathematics is the design language for proving ideal behaviors of the (so-called) abstract.

Note (+): An 'open story of counting', it must be said that mathematical methodology is a cumulative effort (ie. built atop previous checks).

As a library for manipulating+synthesizing variables, mathematicians use its subfields* and models to solve puzzles+formulate theories/theorems/identities.We acknowledge the so-called 'Big Five (5)' active areas in mathematics to be: algebra, analysis, arithmetic, geometry, and music. As far as I am concerned, the basis of math is juking.

"The essence of mathematics is not proof, but conjecture." - Link Starbureiy

Notes (+): +There are three (3) classes of mathematics: pure, applied, and recreational (pure,applied ∈ recreational). This definition covers all three (3), and may be referred to as polymathematics. Someone who advances the field can be called a mathematician.

+In my line of work, I think of so-called 'recreational mathematics' as a type of (among other considerations) reverse engineering, where we I am re-creating known structures/models for study and understanding. As an example, in puzzle solving, I may take a known and solved (from means other than juking) macromolecule (eg. protein), and juke that fibor so that it can databased. (see also Pajamas)

+Mathematics is a type of low-technology, as well as being its own industry.


Mathletics (etymology: math+athletics) is any scenario where the actual act of doing mathematics is turned into a legitimate sport. In our case (cf. juking), mathletics* is the mapping of fitness metrics - namely walks - to their respective fibors [mathletics = preimageimage] (ie. a technical understanding of the mechanics to a specific play run), thus making ludology a normal component of recreation. Mathletics may also be defined more primitively; for we can say that the ability to gamify any puzzle-solution (specifically one of capture the flag🏁 objectivity with a 🥕bounty program [🏁→🥕]) is a demonstration (ie. competitive flexing) of being subjectively 'mathletic'.Contextual juking. (see also recreational mathematics, cryptosport)

Furthermore, (in gameplay) the mathlete is someone who uses EGP to decrypt/encrypt walks from entropic events. More succinctly, the mathlete is a sport performer (or coach) with priority to act out some particular ballet. In terms of so-called "mathleticism", its definition is of a person's (here, the "mathlete") potential to obtain a high score (translation: earn ¢ents) in competitive mathletics. (see also mathletic scholarship, mathemusic, Mathilda, treble)

Note (+): Mathletics is classified under recreational mathematics.

"The existential test of a mathlete is their ability to maximize their earning potential." - Link Starbureiy

From an historical standpoint, I called it 'mathletics' because after reading the book "Hyperspace" by Michio Kaku, particularly the part where the author enticed readers to find a solution to string field theory, I ended up later creating the EGP Keynote (based off of what I perceived to be a hinted challenge from Kaku). Had I been in academia, this may have been a community effort, but since I worked (as a tendency) in isolation (solo) at the time, I chose to treat it like a sport. Hence the origins of my recreational approach to mathematics.🤓

Link Egglepple Starbureiy's signature

Created the jukebox, UUe, to solve Egglepple.🤓 ++Joey Koala🐨 is my sidekick.
i'm the reason you love juking.

Note (+): The names Link Egglepple Starbureiy and lnq are used interchangeably.


+ Link Starbureiy single-handedly formulated contemporary mathemusic.🤓 A quintet consisting of a solo symphony - The Origamic Symphony, an opéra-ballet - Stewart, modification+phrasing - Mathilda+RONALD, a tonic - EGP, and a concerto suite - UUallet. These compositions are pushed to uuhistlegrass (libretto). Puwun is his muse.List is not exhaustive; I typically juggle a number of things at once.

Remark: -- This section pertains to K-MODE. --

- lnq, the figure of juking - is a one-of-a-kind, fun-loving juvenile protocyborg who does only as he wants.* In proportion to his ego, therefore, rendering him impervious to boredom and invulnerable to psychosis.
- Egglepple is home to lnq and his yots (ie. lnq and the yots are endemic to Egglepple). It exists on primitive notions, and thus, is always fresh and in the process of becoming.

- lnq (Egglepple's distinct avatar) is a lean, wooly-haired, very dark-skinned toddler clad in pajamas, with a featured yoyo. He is traditionally depicted chewing bubblegum^ while reciting! his repertoire, using a crayon for cheironomy.An everlasting piece (as a perpetual stream) of bubblegum. With dumbness - selectively mute, not stupid.

- lnq often composes mathemusic in a state voluntarily induced/educed by the lullaby, Bernice Eve. Otherwise, he is indefatigable.

- Autodidactic and peripatetic, lnq's preferred playplace (for training) is a gym* (eg. ). Additionally, he might construct impromptu shelter from his hammock on a bigo tree.The playscape may be replete with these.


+ lnq uses the Stewdio (an instrumental analog would be the lyre) exclusively to stereotype EGP/solve Egglepple. He also sports a yoyo for dribbling.

Note (+): Combined, these may be playfully called 'Stewdyo'. The Stewdio is of his own invention.🤓


- Juking, lnq's joie de vivre, is the source of his mathleticism.

- Having Stewniversal autonomy, lnq is the sole entity whose insuperable presence in the Kindergarten can conduct any part of the orchestra. He uses his krayon for ornamenting jukespace. Likewise, he can instinctively trap things (namely fibor) in bubblegum [blown bubbles], which he can then chew until they vanish/absorb.

- lnq is equipped with perpetual youth; advancing strictly in wisdom+intuition (an offered explanation for his caricatured large head*). Being a blackbody, all information is ideally absorbed and emitted, internally cached (optional mind upload/neural download), and can be recalled on-demand (instant replay/playback of events). However, because he can selectively remove his emotions from his experiences, he remains unaffected by memories. This all comes courtesy of having a healthy abundance of (neuro)melanin.Operates as a control hub.

- The bounds of what lnq can imagine are undefined. His imagination is the fountain of his strength and takes him wherever he is (virtually) willing to go.

Resting Lnq
