Four sticks of 윷놀이 (Yut-Nori)

Yut, probability and constant width
Yut-nori is very much the Royal Game of Ur (see youtube video by British Museum) or the more modern version, Ludo, where you have to get your pieces to the end before the other team, and you start from the beginning if someone lands on you. 261 more words

Death Rattles

Recently, I had an encounter with a diamondback rattlesnake.

Whenever I have the opportunity to engage in a staring contest with a diamondback (this time I won), I like to contemplate the archetypal significance of the forking black tongue, and why there is association with androgyny and non-duality (the re-pairing of schism) with these creatures who produce forking tongues, who  are mythically the supposed “first primordial being who creates good and who creates evil”, or another way of putting it, an original force which intimidates a shaking rabbit into playing with the cards it deals (or the coin), controlling the options, which is a classic tactic of manipulation and population management. 880 more words
