43 Quintillion permutations too easy?

The standard 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube has a lot of permutations (43,252,003,274,489,856,000 to be exact), but that’s not challenging enough for some.  One person decided to solve a 17x17x17 cube, designed by puzzle designer Oskar van Deventer (http://goo.gl/uhMwV3), which has 6.69 x 10^1054 permutations. That’s a lot of zeros!

Check out the time-lapse video from  Kenneth Brandon (+RedKB)  on YouTube, where he solves this “supercube” in a mere 7.5 hours.

Human Intelligence: Daniel Kahneman --- Two Systems of the Mind

In this video, Kahneman says: "Perception has an element of prediction to it."

For many years, mathematicians have assumed that prediction was the preserve of Probability and the confidence with which we (and our systems) can calculate the chance of something happening. 

On 01Jan 2015 I'll share a video of my version of the "Two systems of our minds" which is consistent with Kahneman's theories as well as with Da Vinci. 

Perceptions and their differences from Probability have been playing around in my mind since childhood so I built a little system.
