Instructions

Beyond the Centralized Mindset:
Without any centralized organizer of the group, the points self-organize to form a near-perfect circle using two simple rules:
1) Move to maintain a fixed distance from two buddies (for example point7 has as its buddies point6 and point8)
2) Try to move away from all the other points.
This approach is called: constraint-plus-noise
Use Turbo mode to speed up the organization.
