The suspicion, harbored by many physicists and mathematicians over the decades but rarely actively pursued, is that the peculiar panoply of forces and particles that comprise reality spring logically from the properties of eight-dimensional numbers called “octonions.”

I wonder if Collector harbours similar ideas?

first I have to understand what "eight-dimensional numbers called “octonions.”" is. I am a simple farmer sitting in my garden waiting for this evening's blood moon eating onions.

why not go stright to sedenions? "Unlike the octonions, the sedenions are not an alternative algebra." wiki 

16 dimensions?

Die Sonne scheint bei Canal de Suez und Gibraltar
Eviva Espagna!
Hitler weiss, wie sie das macht
Eviva Mein Fuhrer!
Die Gläser, die sind voller Republikaner Blut
Eviva Generalissimo!
Und jeder ist ein Faschist
Espagna por favor!




you cannot reach me now
no matter how you try
goodbye, cruel world,
it's over
walk on by

The heatwave is over here, and it's been a rainy day. I was mostly sleeping with cats, apart from breaks for a workout and the chores. Now I can't sleep and I'm writing a negative critique essay on an article of one of the greatest gurus in statistics. If I'm wrong in my analysis, I will wear a hat in that way till the end of the year :-)

What are those books at the top? Norge Tax Laws 1880-1923?
Do you have room for another one? I refer to Complete Options quite a bit in it. (that's 2nd book from left on middle shelf)
