just some right angles, moving back and forth and stuff
1, 2, √5
unrelatedly, just, for nostalgia’s sake…
complex function or rotating julia set function? probably latter
guess what I just spent two and a half hours watching
so when are they going to add all the kidpix symbols to unicode
So, let’s say you’ve gotten extremely lost, and find yourself in the middle of a flat, infinite field with posts planted into the ground in an infinite grid. There should be a post where you are, but there’s you instead.
Now, from your perspective, some of those posts are going to be visible, and some of those aren’t; if you’re in the middle of the second picture, the ones you’ll see are the ones drawn in black.
Anyways, somebody pointed out that this pattern has a bunch of symmetries (specifically, it’s really really easy to show that this is invariant w/r/t GL(2,ℤ)) so I thought I’d illustrate that. and thats what this is.
using what software?
just. anything? you just…
hektor41 replied to your post “thesummerofmark replied to your photo “these are fun and easy to…”great! What kinds of groups can you represent with this method?
not sure what you mean…Well, i think they could be used to represent some kinds of…
[10:09:46 AM] frictionlessemu: a semisimple group decomposes as a product of a maximal compact subgroup, a maximal torus, and a unipotent radical :o
I wonder what this sounds like to…
this is fun -‿-
I have found my niche (and it was filled)
topological groups are so pretttyyy
This is the magic hexagon. The numbers add up to 38 along each diagonal/vertical line.
It can be called the magic hexagon rather than a magic hexagon because there are no other hexagons numbered 1,2…n with this property, no matter how many layers the arrangement has.
(well, except for the one which is just one hexagon with ‘1’ written in it, and that’s hardly magical…)

The next time you think about which aspects of the human mind are learned and which are inherent, I want you to remember that babies are not born with object permanence.
