[edit] Emacs variables

Relevant things you can setq in ~/.emacs.d/init.el if your brain doesn't deal well with two directions in one line:

bidi-directional-controls-chars
  Variable: Character set that matches bidirectional formatting
            control characters.
bidi-directional-non-controls-chars
  Variable: Character set that matches any character except
            bidirectional controls.
bidi-display-reordering
  Variable: Non-nil means reorder bidirectional text for display in
            the visual order.
bidi-paragraph-direction
  User option: If non-nil, forces directionality of text paragraphs in
               the buffer.
inhibit-bidi-mirroring
  Variable: Non-nil means don't mirror characters even when bidi
            context requires that.
redisplay--inhibit-bidi
  Variable: Non-nil means it is not safe to attempt bidi reordering
            for display.
