It's so lonely trying to figure planetary gears and sequencing. I suspect that I must begin to scratch at this like a primal man in his cave, by the light of his warm fire. There are five colours per wheel. Each colour has 6 potential values. Thus, each wheel has 30*5 is 180 values. If there are three wheels, each with 180 potentials, then the total number of possible combinations is either 3*180 is 540. or 125*6 is 750. Either way it feels like too high of a number for me to count. So I have resoved to use one of my only and favorite math skills: factoring. There are 5 colours each with one column (of 6 potentials). Thus 3 wheels with 5 potential combinations is 5*5*5 is 125 potentials. One hundred and twenty-five. That's a lot of numerical words! I will meditate upon these columns like sparkling spokes under a starlit sky.
