these are the start of a set of topologically distinct unique characters.. the figure that looks like an 8 is actually just 2 circles connected... circles are identified as any closed shape that has its corners "clipped off" ie it goes accross diagonals as well as straight lines.. any morphing of a glyph is allowed according to a set of rules which I will give... if any one shape can be morphed into another following this given set of rules it can be said to be identical... the rules are as follows... a bend or turn in a line is considered to be a change in the shape, lines that are attached to a shape ie a circle or a line can be moved around and repositioned but two seperate lines cannot be made into one, a line that is bent in one ore more places cannot be unbent and must remain bent in its given orientation... a mirror image of a shape and a shape cannot be turned into one another so are considered to be seperate distinct symbols.. any number of closed shapes may be connected together and they cannot be squashed say into lines etc but they can only be repositioned so long as its basic topological structure remains the same.. those are the rules in a nutshell... now I feel that it would be good to arrange all of the glyphs in order from the ones that use the fewest strokes or marks to create , as those would be the fastest and easiest to write...If I have made any errors or ommisions with regards to this please let me know.. thank you.
