The LineNum Source

Introduction

We've started counting the number of lines in shapes and symbols, starting with the circle and cross. These are a part of the popular game, noughts and crosses, and are the symbols for hugs and kisses. The first shape, a circle, involves a single curved line. The cross involves two lines. A single line can not contain any sharp kinks or corners. If it does then it would become multiple lines.

The Five Basic LineNum Shapes

After the circle and cross are the shapes with three, four, and five lines - the triangle, square, and star. Across the history of cave paintings, circles, triangles, and quadrangles (including squares) were found in 20% of sites, while cruciforms (crosses) were found in 13% of sites. The pentagram (star) is a more modern sign.
