Geo-metry is about measuring Earth, stupid, and Earth is 3D!

How come that the Greeks knew how to measure not only earth but also the heavens?

How come that current metrics work either in astronomical or in nano-scales but not both?

And why was Escher fascinated by those geometric structures called polyhedra? What on earth is their significance?

Well, I’ve come up with “3d metric” ideas, concepts and insights that make the connections between

  • geometry and number theory
  • measuring time and space
  • measuring stillness and movement

as well as

  • macro- and micro-dimensions
  • astro- and nuclear physics
  • physics and mathematics.

For Einstein had pointed out the gap:

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

My “3d metric” approach to image analysis closes this gap: Cassiopeia can be re-visualised with more visual and metric detail,

just as any image at nano-scale and below:

The article publishing the Cassiopeia article appeared in SCIENCE in May 2008. I’ve got it as a pdf here.
