Poem series on words in The Matrix?

Mindfulness -Attention -Meta -Here -Now -Be
Nonattachment -Acceptance -Open -Soft -May -If
Oneness -Affirmation -Love -Kind -Yes -Do

tiny thinking sermonettes on each?


This Is It

Just three things:

... with initials M N O , the letters on a telephone keypad for "6", the first perfect number in mathematics. (Pure coincidence!) Mindfulness, Nonattachment, Oneness are three dimensions of awareness, distinct yet overlapping, three steps of a journey. The rest is commentary. Take what is helpful, ignore what is not. And be patient – the irrelevant now may be crucial later, and vice versa.

The Matrix

Mindfulness Attention Meta Here Now Be
Nonattachment Acceptance Open Soft May If
Oneness Affirmation Love Kind Yes Do

Patterns are practical. They help organize knowledge, they make meaning memorable – ... and they're fun! "The Matrix" has three rows, one each for Mindfulness, Nonattachment, and Oneness. Its columns carry letter patterns ...

Causal Loop Modeling ideas

look into CARDS THAT HAVE EDGE MATCHES to build Causal Loop Diagrams?! (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wang_tile and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpentiles and http://www.gamepuzzles.com/moredge.htm and http://www.gamepuzzles.com/edgemtch.htm perhaps)

simulate a LOOPY model by sliding pennies along edges? -- see https://perl.plover.com/Regex/article.html for doing that to simulate Regular Expression parsing and pattern recognition!

# experiment in reading a CSV file and relevance-ranking its lines against a regex
# ^z - 2020-09-26

# usage:
#   perl relevance-rank.pl pattern <current.csv >new.csv
#
# what it does (maybe!):
#   loads regex "pattern", reads current.csv, and outputs new.csv
#      appends ",pattern" to the first line
#      and appends ",count" to the remaining lines
#        where "count" is how many times "pattern" occurs in that linea
#
# possible issues:
#   chars in "pattern" that need escaping in a *.csv?

my $pat = $ARGV[0];
my $count;
my $line = <STDIN>; # process first line
$line =~ s/\R//; # remove any trailing newlines
print "$line,$pat";
while (<STDIN>) {
  s/\R//;
  $count = 0;
  $_ =~ s/($pat)/$count++;$1/eg; #count occurrences of $pat and restore
  print "$_,$count";  # put the count at the end of every *.csv line
