Basic BBS-ISL Rule 1: All numbers (#s) related by the 1–4–9-…PD sequence
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 2: Every # in the PD sequence is the square of an Axial #.
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 3: The Odd-Number Summation sequence forms the PD sequence.
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 4: Every EVEN Inner Grid (IG) # is divisible by 4 & all are present.
A: The difference (∆) between its two PD-sequence #s. (Note: A=B=C=D=E, and F.)
B: The sum (∑) of the ∆s of each of its PD#s between its two PD-sequence #s (as above).
C: The ∆ between the squares of the two Axial #s forming that IG# (as above).
D: The product of the Addition & Subtraction of the two Axial #s forming that IG# (as above).
E: The product of the Diagonal Axis # — STEPS from the PD — times the ∑ of Row + Column Axis #s.
F: Also, the product of its 2 Axial #s intersected by that IG#’s 90° diagonals.
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 7: The ODD-Number sequence, and the 1–4–9-…PD sequence, forms the sequential ∆ between ALL IG#s.
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 8: The ∆ between #s within the Parallel Diagonals is a constant 2 x its Axial #.
Basic BBS-ISL Rule 10: Every #, especially the #s in the ONEs Column, informs both smaller and larger Sub-set symmetries (much larger grids required to demonstrate).
IGGR 1: The IG is formed of two equal & symmetrical 90°-right, isosceles triangles that are bilaterally symmetrical about the PD — and, infinitely expandable.
IGGR 2: The 90°-right-triangle — inherent to ALL squares and rectangles by definition — both forms the alternating EVEN-ODD square grid cells within the Matrix, and, is responsible for all major patterns and sequences, thereupon.
IGGR 3: Subtraction-Addition: Every IG# is simply the ∆ between its two PD#s (subtraction), and, the sum (∑) of any IG# + its PD# above = the PD# on the end of that Row (or, Column).
IGGR 4: Multiplication-Division: Every IG# is simply the product of the two AXIAL #s intersected by the two diagonals — of that said IG# — pointing back to the Axis at a 90° angle (multiplication), and, the dividend of the Axial divisor and quotient (division).
IGGR 5: The actual # of grid-cell steps — i.e., the actual # of STEPS from a given IG# to another by a strictly horizontal, vertical, or 45° diagonal path — forms a simple, yet often fundamental descriptor to the pattern-sequence templates that inform the more advanced patterns, e.i., Exponentials and especially the Pythagorean Triples (PTs). STEPS are particularly important in the geometric visualizations within the BBS-ISL Matrix (as alluded to in IGGR 2, above).
TPISC-BBS-ISL Rule 2: Every PT is found on the BBS-ISL Matrix and can be located by this intersection of EVERY PD (9>) and a Row with PFSs.
TPISC-BBS-ISL Rule 3: Every PT — including its sides, perimeter, area and proof — can also be found and fully profiled (and, predicted) as r-set, s-,t-set members of the Dickson Method (DM), Expanded Dickson Method (EDM), and the Fully Expanded Dickson Method (FEDM), shown herein.
