Vn117.1 Playing Both Sides 1/14/78
These data establish that when Miriam plays against herself she does not use the games merely for easy satisfaction of a certain win. Game 3 is especially striking in that it shows the unusual side opening Miriam rarely used before the table-turning sequence for the game of form X she initiated in Vignette 115, Tic Tac Toe Finale.
I consider it a reasonable speculation that during Game 1, she formulated for herself a perspective on gamaes of form VII that permitted her articulate description of the distinction between games of VII-A and VII-B she exhibited in Game 5.
