I do something similar
, but don't quite think
of it as a game
. I think of how numbers
. Since I can remember I had trouble falling
right to sleep. Now it's easier
because I hardly get any sleep
, but my mental "game
" started with me watching my clock
. The : became an equal sign
, etc. I would make connections
Whenever I see numbers, I notice immediately if there's some cool association between them. I never knew that anyone else did this. It helps in other math to be doing this sort of practice all the time, I've found. Your brain processes the simple stuff more quickly, which enables the hard shit to not be as horrendous. I would recommend for anyone to try to get into the habit of doing this. It makes your thoughts less boring, I think...
No, Arithmetwists are dumb. Those are forced and imposed. These games are for fun in our crazy little heads...
