I’ve received some comments that people were having problems understanding what the whole Stroke Theory is really about. Admittedly, I’ve contributed fairly to this confusion by letting the theory develop and reporting the “increments”, but never having provided a concise overview of the status quo.
I want to make amends for that and have written a short PDF document which outlines the basic tenets of the ST and explains some features and consequences of it. I will keep this document updated, so that it will always reflect the current state of affairs, and you don’t need to wade through pages of history.
The actual works of the enciphering system according to the ST is only three pages, the rest are essentially discussions of special properties and background information.
