I was attempting to learn more about LN and came across the post below.
I also made a picture of my interpretation of the instructions.
In it, the suggestion is made that Nodes 1, 2 and3 connect to the his own (main) Lighning Node.
The purpose of this exercise is for Nodes 1, 2, and 3 to "gain access to the Lightning Network" altogether.
I was wondering if this would not be an exercise of futility (since the channels are funded with such small amounts).
