Bring structure in chaos | give structures names


When you feel hopeless, you experience chaos

Remember that moment in time when you experienced a “feeling of hopelessness”. Yes, that is right, that moment! Was not that a moment when you felt you had no control over that particulair situation? Let me make an educated guess, you experienced a gray mass. Something you could not get a grip on, something intangible. You just did not know what to do next.

Tip: Structure is recognition of possiblities

Everything has structure of some kind. How gray the matter may be, at the end structure is defined as “the recognition of the possibilities”. The naming of those structures – that contain these possibilities – helps your subconscious to recognize these structures by their given name and switch between them as soon as it feels stuck in the line of attack. As a result you feel like you have control over chaos.

How to play SUDOKU manually (strategies)

E.g. I love SUDOKU [1]. For the beginner there is only a bunch of numbers. But once you know the ground rules, you can start looking for structures that help you overcome the blur of watching these numbers.

Sudoko in essence is a variation of the category “MEMORY”.
Basic rules of the game:

  1. Recognize the players. (Learn to recognize the individual components EASILY and QUICKLY: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ,7 ,8 ,9)
  2. All rows must consist of the number 1 – 9. (No same numbers can occur in the same row)
  3. Below are structures that help you to easily position certain sequences. (Positions of numbers may vary the places 1 – 6.)
––– 123 –––
––– 456 –––
123 ––– 456
123 ––– 456
––– 123 –––
––– 456 –––
1) Positions of the bold numbers
are interchangeable between
the red ones in the series.
123 ––– –––
456 ––– –––
––– 123 456
––– ––– 123
––– ––– 456
123 456 –––
2) This works in both verticle
and horizontal positions.
Variations on a theme:
123 ––– –––
––– 123 456
456 ––– –––
––– ––– 123
123 456 –––
––– ––– 456
––– 123 –––
123 ––– 456
––– 456 ––– 
––– –x– –––
–x– ––– –––
––– ––– –x–
––– ––– –x–
–x– ––– –––
––– –x– –––
3) No same number can occur
on the same row
(nor vertical, nor horizontal)
–x– ––– –––
––– –x– –––
––– ––– –x–
 ––– ––– –x–
––– –x– –––
–x– ––– –––

So the next time you feel overwhelmed and experience chaos, take a deep breathe (or two) and learn to see structure. (Structure is what you see in it.) From one, comes two, comes three. And in no time you feel you can handle the situation.
