**nut**(or

**ball**) is an endpoint of a loopstring. String only have two (2) endpoints, hence, there are only two

**nuts**.

Egglepple-wise, each

**nut**is either a start or stop identifier (leaf).*** The two

**nuts**of TOS are Planck

`data`

and the `nanoscale`

, connected by Egglepple. As an arbitrary ordered pair [egg,epp], they are referred to as *abscissa*(toonlight) and

*ordinate*(funshine).

///

**Balls**are pseudo-theoretical (abstract)

`objects`

that only exist as placement `functions`

. There is no '**ball**', so-to-speak, just a representation of an

`endpoint`

(dot). However, in `gameplay`

, a **ball**can be a toy (eg. ctf flag🏁, see

`zero-bubble`

). Likewise, macroeconomically, a **ball**would be lyric (triangulated data point).

Mathematically, it's called a '

**ball**' (and sometimes 'dot') because as the string folds upon itself, the endpoints (a metric space) coordinate ("connecting the dots") into a loop, and the overall structure usually assumes a shape that is similar to some ovoid with boundary (cf., compact blob) in stereo.
