    Updated the site:
    https://linenum.com/
    ....Across the history of cave paintings, circles, triangles, and quadrangles (including squares) were found in 20% of sites, while cruciforms (crosses) have been found in 13% of sites. The pentagram (star) is a more modern sign.
    I thought that was interesting... all 4 of the basic shapes... (well squares are technically quadrangles...)

    yes, the "paradox attribution of credit and blame" -keith stanning, university of edinburgh. oi! btw semiotic archaeology is a hoot, but if you are involved in what I'm doing, you're a freaking masochist. I'm into semiotics (via credit/blame of three people on here), which involves the study not only of what we refer to as ‘signs’ in everyday speech, but of anything which ‘stands for’ something else. and at the moment, more specifically, I'm interested in conventional mathematical notation or "squiggle systems" heh, how we swallow squiggles, their structural properties which affect ease of reproducibility and cognition, cross-cultural variability of squiggle systems and those effects on cognition. you see I'm extremely lazy and stupid. As such, I happen to think math teaching deploys a limited repertoire of modes for understanding relationships between abstract concepts. my disposition in remedial math was jaded (kinda like now! heh) and that my teacher was an idiot. in a way i was and remain the idiot. but i'd visit the encyclopedia and realize they didn't teach the subject in long form way (as I preferred it) because of limited semantic accessibility for arithmetical or higher conceptual representation at the kid level. i wasn't and still suck with words but they make more sense then the trash I see passing as a mathematical worthy investment of my time. point is, there's more than one way to fillet, season, cook, and serve.

    So you also could involve colors standing for something else?

    I liked my "energy" colors like yellow sun energy, etc:

    Though I changed "magenta spirit energy" to "white spirit energy". (and I call cyan "blue")

    Have you come across other examples of "line numbers"? (besides tally marks which I added to my web page)

    Since you seem to be an expert, I was wondering what are your thoughts on the PlayStation controller symbols:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_controller

    Red circle - "confirm"
    Blue cross - "cancel"
    Green triangle - "point of view"
    Pink square - "a sheet of paper to access menus"

    And it is often in this order - triangle, circle, cross, square.

    That is the sequence that is trademarked...

    My sequence is circle, cross, triangle, square.

    Despite how crappy I think PlayStation's version of their 4 symbols is, there are huge fans... e.g. here's 50 tattoos that often involve those symbols:

    I'll respond about your squiggles after digging through my expertly collection of damp acrid old texts on the subject. As for playstation's. They certainly don't make researching it in English very easy ... oyasumi nasai!
