THE HEIRONYMOUS COMPUTING MANDALA DEVICE.
this is all based on the “heironymous computing mandala image.” patent pending, copyright reserved, since i just created it right here, etc. ok then. copyright 2018 d.lance.
.
.
with this device
we can flip a coin
and with coin flips as input,
it will generate as output
a random character of the alphabet and the morse code for it, visually.
since it outputs a random letter of the alphabet, if you toss the coins three times, you will get three random letters of the alphabet.  it might form a word, or it might be an acronym for something, or not.  as we get deeper into the process the image / device will allow me to demonstrate the building blocks of a digital system, since the image / device is itself, when used this way, becomes a digital computer.  if you want to ignore all that you can still use the device to generate random sequences of letters, and in the process you might accidentally learn something, and that is ok too. 

so do this:
(if you want to try this right now, it should take about five minutes...)
.
you will need six coins.
take one coin and flip it.
draw six coin-sized boxes in a row.  you don't really have to draw the boxes on a piece of paper but it does help to keep things orderly.  the coins are in boxes / positions / slot 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
so, of the six coins, take a coin and flip it.
put it in the box on the right, box number six.
.
flip the second coin and into the next box over, box number five.
do that for the rest of the coins,
right to left,
until they are all in the boxes.
.
now then.
boxes numbered 5 and 6, together, have the following four possibilities, and so they generate a number from 1 to 4, as follows:
.
THE CC CODE
both heads means 4.
if they read (left to right) a heads on the left and a tails on the right, the number they give is 3.
a T , H , means 2,
and lastly a T , T means 1.
.
OK THEN.
we threw six coins,
those last two we just read then determine as follows:
.
so with the output of the previous step, if that number was 4 then leave all four coins in boxes 1 through 4.
if the number is three leave 1 through 3 and take the 4th coin out of its box and put it back in the pile.
if the number was two, leave 2 coins.
and if the number was 1, only leave the one.
.
we will do an example of the the process here.
so,
i threw the coins, got T , H , T , T , T , H
that means the last two coins we read, by the order we just listed out, above, our CC code is the number “2” .
.
so of the left four, we leave the coins in slot one and slot two, and we discarded the coins in slots three and four.
.
so we see on the heironymous computing mandala image, then, the following output. (the heironymous computing image mandala is found at the very bottom of this webpage in the post labelled p.2, the second post from the bottom, or you might be able to imagine along without it, for now. 
.
so, starting from the bottom point, pointing south, down. the innermost band of the chart is the first coin. it was tails, which is signified by white in the diagram, and so we see that it is the left side of the innermost ring.
.
the coin in slot two is heads. slot two is equal to ring two. the innermost ring is ring one, so starting at the bottom ordinal position and following the circle clockwise, until the line of ring 2 turns black, for heads. we read from innermost ring to next ring outside it, so we see two digits,
in binary this is the number of “01”,
where the first ring is white ( 0. ) and the second ring is black ( 1. )
.
and as you can see in the chart,
it is a letter of the alphabet, in morse code.
if you send me a message with the letter that you came up with from this example i can see if out math was correct!  
.
so the graphic design itself
is, using this specific cycle, a fully functional computation device, which, if done correctly, (typos) the instructions correctly, is a random alphanumeric's generator in grammatically correct morse code, which is readable on the chart as read from the innermost ring to the outermost ring, white = 0 = dit, black = 1 =dash, and the casting process of coins in this way then also exactly mimicked one machine-clock cycle in a digital device using half adders and standard machine logic and whatnot, which we will all explain later one piece at a time. the point is that if you understand the graphic then you can see all of this simultaneously, and so at the very least it is a very lovely mnemonic for morse code, counting in binary, digital logic, the ancient i-ching, the directional points of a sixteen point compass rose, calculating time as a 24 hour clock, um, etc. as i weed out the typos, one day at a time, i guess.
.
ok then. so far so good. now that we have learnt morse code we can use the next lesson to create a functioning incremental counter using what is called, in digital logic an “and” gate, complete with ability to generate stack overflow errors. all using just the graphic. and some coins. maybe. we will get this posted first.
