Earlier today, I answered a prompt from Plinky where I wrote about how the Rubik’s cube was one of my favorite puzzles and it often gives me solace when I doubt my memory skills which occurs more often these days. This afternoon as I was trying to think of something to write about, it occurred to me that I have written often about my ability to solve the Rubik’s cube but I haven’t solved it in quite a while. So as the saying goes, “put up or shut up”. I went and got my Rubik’s cube and messed it up to make sure that I still had it.
I solved it, I can’t explain how I do it. I just follow the pattern and that is all it is, a pattern of steps and combinations that eventually come together and make sense.
