Vn106.1 Tic Tac Toe and Nim 10/22/77
Miriam’s Tic Tac Toe play shows an opening game played only with Glenn before and some surprising rigidity. When we play a subtraction arithmetic form of Nim, Miriam adduces “going second” as the efficient cause of her winning game 2. This appears to be as a consequence of our playing with hexapawn; this idea — I call it a vanguard issue — appears to be one Miriam has become sensitized to and is trying to fit into other microworlds.
