Also full 5 style is not a human possibility I believe, I don’t know if you realize how huge those alg counts are and how long it would take for you to learn them. Assuming we want to only learn the edge algs without flips and breaks over the course of our life it’s going to take a while. Let’s calculate how many algs we need to learn a day assuming we start learning the day we are born and we are finish the day we die and that we live an average human life expectancy, 304,128/(365)(79)= ~10.547. So you are learning 10.547 algs per day every day of your life and that’s not even for edge cycles with flips and breaks and we haven’t even touched corners. That’s just not possible, to put that rate of learning algs into perspective you would be able to learn full 1LLL in (~3.9k algs) in just over a year.

If you give this method a quick thought (thought made upto a few days) , it would seem like an unrealistic pipedream when you realise the sheer number of algorithms in it , and that is the reason why I procrastinated for nearly 3 years before starting out on learning 5-cycles (from 2014 to 2016).

The doc had more content about just plain comparison , as I just wanted to address all kinds of scepticism that people might have when they hear about 5 cycles for the first time.

Few people are learning 1LLL and that itself is a massive undertaking, and by your linear scale of improvement , it should take ~1 year.

Your statement considers a linear way of learning algs , which is not the case while learning cube algorithms, generally the learning process accelerates due to common ideas between algs, symmetries and mirrors. So , I am banking on the acceleration in my learning to atleast memorise a size-able chunk of this algset.

At first , this method might always feel like worth to give up on as there is no instant reward for quite a while, but ones you start to invest time and effort into it, the learning process can gain traction , and it would not seen like a mammoth task.

(Also I plan to do the 4-cycles , and the 5-cycles having flipped edge as target in them , after i pan out the Pure edge cycles = 22x20x18x16 = 126720 algs , pure corner cycles = 21x18x15x12 = 68040).

For flipped edges case, there is already cool resources out there, which have multiple algs for multiple cases of the flipped edge.
