### Gods algorithm?

Is it possible? It would help everyone here!

### Re: Gods algorithm?

Do you know what it is?
I think it means the algorithm which could be used to solve a cube from any position.
Also, have you thought about how many algorithms that would be? It'd probably be over a trillion! (reduced from 43 quintillion because of rotational symmety)
Also, recognition would be insane, and each algorithm would be difficult to memorize and not very fingertricky.
lol, here to help ^_~

I have heard that you can use this algorithm to solve in under 20 moves!

Yeah, but then you'd need to memorize a case for every possible position, which would likely make over 1,000,000,000,000 cases. That's not efficient.

To memorize that would be hard! but it would be worth it. I mean, under 20 moves. A robot could do it, but not me! Have you tried it?

I'm sorry, but have you even tried to think about it--How old are you?
If every case took only 1 second to memorize, and you never took a break of any sort in between (e.g. eat, drink, sleep), memorizing all of the algorithms would take 31688 YEARS.
A robot uses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimal_solutions_for_Rubik%27s_Cube#Thistlethwaite.27s_algorithm this, I believe.

I'm 15 Dude. Guess only God can do it. If I was God for a day..........then I could do it.

http://kociemba.org/cube.htm This sound neat. Look at it and tell me what you think Sharkretriver. Just a Question.

### Re: Gods algorithm?

I've seen that. It might be neat but you can't use that to find all algorithms, or at least I don't think you can, because as I said earlier, it will take you several thousand years without a break.
