Bit-Yoshimoto Cube The objects that you've been trying to call Bit in Flynn's Safehouse are Yoshimoto Cubes. Please refrain from trying to change correct information to false based on your assumptions. Disputed information needs to be taken to the talk page. -- WarBlade (talk) 20:38, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

 The Yoshimoto Cubes are in the scene to represent bits. That is why Clu looks at them when he visits the safe house. This is obvious. Mr. D. (talk) 22:51, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
I understand that the rant was born of frustration and anger, and I don't hold it against you. I do however recommend that you avoid posting in anger. As for the Yoshimoto cubes, no. These have nothing to do with Bit. Flynn's penchant for games in his earlier days has led to him keeping a number of more cerebral puzzles and games in the system, and the Yoshimoto cubes were simply among his collection. Perhaps Clu saw a resemblance - who knows? But documenting speculation is a never ending slippery slope, and definitely something to be avoided. -- WarBlade (talk) 23:20, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I disagree. There has been no previous mention of this puzzle. Now if they had shown him with one in th eoriginal movie, I would agree. But to just be a puzzle on his mantle would be as illogical as if it had been a rubik cube. I agree that they are puzzles, but I honsetly believe they were placed there to resemble Bits. Mr. D.

I think I may have something for you -- Yoshimoto cubes are used for meditative exercises, like the Baoding balls which Clu was manipulating in the Disc Wars sequence, since they can be folded indefinitely. Without any further conformation from those involved in making the movie, their presence in Flynn's safehouse would fit in more directly with his zafu, I Ching, unfinished game of Go, and his Zen thing in general than with a memory of a type of creature which was only seen in the original movie and in Uprising. But a quick google search turned up Jeff Bridges saying in an interview that the cubes were his idea and that he thought of the sequence as having "some Bit-ishness;" coming from him, this history of the cubes' involvement ceases to be fan speculation and becomes production information, which would then properly go in the Trivia section along with the Bit-inspired fireworks. --Infiniteviking (talk) 01:07, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Fine, then let's put it in the trivia section. But I think that the article you linked give support to my original posting. Mr. D. (talk) 02:37, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
OK. The reason they'd go in Trivia is that they're not actually appearances of a Bit, but a subtle, indirect nod to the character; but yes, the article does support your conclusion that the cubes were a homage; that's why I linked it. --Infiniteviking (talk) 16:58, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
 I understand. The same could be said about the model on Sam's shelf. It was not an actual apperance. Just saying. Mr. D. (talk) 17:10, March 25, 2013 (UTC)


Why am I being asked to log in at every page I visit? Also, since this issue has been resolved, any chance of the block being lifted? Mr. D. (talk) 03:08, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. Not sure what the problem was. Mr. D. (talk) 18:14, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, seem to be having a probelm with the Facebook Login systme. So I disconnected from FB and just made  anormal login. Mr. D. (talk) 23:20, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
