Unity+ Posted May 10, 2014 Author Share Posted May 10, 2014 Can you explain that a bit further? I remember asking Sir Michael Atiyah a similar question; "what is geometry?" His reply was more or less that geometry is algebra when you can think in terms of pictures. This I liked as modern geometry like algebra in which you can think geometrically, often with some abuse of language. What I meant was the numbers from one part of mathematics can represented in geometric form(picture form), whether or not it was intended for geometry. However, somethings(such as complex numbers) can only be represented with geometries that are outside the norm. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
