i'm only scratching the surface with the title, i'm not really

going to state the orthodoxy behind a mathematical matrix,

i.e. e.g.

[ 2 3 1 ] uttered 'one by three'...

if i had a two-line bracket i could write it as

[ 2 3 1

1 2 3 ] uttered 'two by three'...

but i'm still fascinated by sudoku, and i can't

get my teeth into it, well **** & proper...

to my tally... only one fiendish solution...

but also: sometimes the difficult tier is easier than a mild

tier puzzle.

anyway... i just wanted to stress that sudoku,

is an irregular matrix...

one explanation is: it's a 2 dimensional object,

but it's a 3 dimensional subject,

in that yes, it's on a piece of paper...

but as a 3 dimensional subject,

the concept includes the 2 dimensional object,

but the added dimension, which makes it 3 dimensional

is*time*... the *time* it takes to complete such a puzzle.

and while you're doing one of these, and getting a buzz

off some **** fine *** (all spice infused) -

you hit a point where you either (a) become slightly cross-eyed

or (b) you're looking at the puzzle as if under water and

it's all blurry

thus (c) a blind-spot emerges, and suddenly a few

squares disappear for what could be as much as a second...

and then you make mistakes...

plus, if you're doing it at night? all the worse for wear.

so why do i mean a sudoku is an irregular matrix...

well... i should say "matrix" since i'll include χ (chi) / multiplication

in the notation: 9 x 9 = 81 that's already suspicious

it's an uneven number, but the puzzle is a square...

anyway, the matrix:

[ 9 x 9

3 x 3

3 x 3 x 9 ]

nine squares, in each of the nine squares

another nine squares,

but then there a need to do the following

to see the optics of the puzzle... i.e.:

9 x 9 = 81 + 3 x 3 = 9 + 3 x 3 x 9 = 81

= 171

but then there's the second eye (and the above

stated whims of doing one drunk):

[ 9 x 9

3 x 3

9 x 3 x 3 ]

and as above 171 + 171 = 342...

and to my ability to understand the puzzle,

there are this many variations of inserting a single number into

a sukodu - in the fiendish tier...

or at least that was what i was conjuring when i was stuck

on no. 9019 - and it allowed me to insert a tiny addition (a 3)

into the puzzle. obviously the number of variations decreases

in the lower tiers.
