Fantastic picture!


Mr Tegmark can make the multispheres if he wants :) but please play in a pure universality and not with bad tools !


a bridge in geometrical algebras ???? :)

all my net is checked even here ....for the prize in algebras ??? It is not cool in fact , I have seen the nobel prize in maths .what is this story ??? Perhaps Mr Tyson and Tegmark can explain me ??? I am not parano I know just the human nature but I am christian also, so I can pardon .... respect me and I will respect you .
