Your application of angles is in relation to the orthogonal pattern.  If
you wish to be bound by such restrictions, feel free.

In this simple treatise, the diagonal and triagonal patterns are being
considered as seperate entities.  And all their planar and cubic
potentials are thus expressed in such regard.

Allow me to state that these suggestions are not to be taken as absolute,
either in their regulation or nomenclatures.  They are primarily attempts
to aid developers in thinking outside the box.

The logic of the 90 degree restriction collapses when applied to the cubic 
move within the diagonal pattern and with the simple planar move within 
the triagonal pattern.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
